PAK vs NZ 2nd Test: The second test match between Pakistan and New Zealand is underway at the National Stadium, Karachi. After winning the toss, New Zealand chose to bat first, and they did a pretty good job in their first inning. The visitors posted a score of 449 in their first inning, highlighted by a brilliant century from opener Devon Conway, who scored 122. Day 2 ended with Pakistan at 154/3 in 47 overs, trailing by 295 runs. Imam-ul-Haq is unbeaten at 74.

However, the second day saw a totally bizarre moment when Babar Azam and Imam were batting, which resulted in the Pakistani skipper getting run out in a weird way. He had a horrible mix-up with Imam and got out after getting a start. Babar Azam made 24 runs on one six and three fours and was looking good at the crease.

It happened in the 25th over. On the second ball of the over, Imam played a ball to his leg side and took two runs. However, in trying to steal the third run, Babar ran towards the batter’s end, but Imam didn’t call for the run. As a result, both batters reached the same crease. Michael Bracewell removed the bails at the bowler’s end, and Babar got out.

After that, Imam was seen getting angry with the skipper and was seen saying something to Babar. Meanwhile, the Pakistani fans didn’t like the behavior the opener showed after the dismissal.

Speaking of the game, New Zealand had a brilliant 10-wicket partnership between Matt Henry and Ajaz Patel. Both batters added 104 runs for the last wicket to take New Zealand near the 450-run mark. Henry remained unbeaten with 68, and Ajaz scored 35. Tom Latham (71) and Tom Blundell (51) also scored half-centuries in the first inning. For Pakistan, Abrar Ahmed took four wickets, while Naseem Shah and Agha Salman took three wickets each.
