New Zealand openers Devon Conway and Tom Latham forged a record highest 165 opening partnership after Agha Salman’s maiden Test hundred on the second afternoon ushered Pakistan to an imposing 438 in their first innings of the Karachi Test. Salman looked in his element on the other side of the Lunch break and made his intentions clear with a solid punch down the ground for four first ball. The whole gamut of eye-pleasing strokes – cuts, pulls, lofts and drives – were on display as he raced from a 97-ball fifty to his first Test ton in the next 49 balls while shepherding the tail.
Splendid batting with the tail ✨#PAKvNZ | #TayyariKiwiHai pic.twitter.com/vg417H75wK
