Tim Southee removes centurion Babar Azam early on Day 2

New Zealand started the second day of the Karachi Test on a promising note, picking up three wickets in the morning session before Agha Salman upped the tempo in the afternoon to steer Pakistan to a formidable total. An unnecessary poke at a Tim Southee delivery in the fifth stump channel saw Babar Azam depart without adding anything to his overnight score of 161, on the fourth ball of the first session. Pakistan went on a stonewalling spree right after, until Salman switched gears.
