Imam-ul-Haq miscues a pull to a backpedalling Daryl Mitchell

Naseem Shah’s reintroduction into the attack brought about Devon Conway’s wicket, ending the second wicket stand with Kane Williamson worth 181. This triggered the slide as Mohammad Nawaz picked up the key wickets of Daryl Mitchell and Tom Latham in the same over followed by the scalp of Williamson, who was bowled by a delivery that spun away.

Phillips also fell to Nawaz while Usama Mir and Haris Rauf picked up a wicket apiece, dismissing Michael Bracewell and Ish Sodhi respectively. Naseem bagged his third with the wicket of Tim Southee but ended up being struck for a six by Santner, who scored 36 before becoming the last man to fall.
