Twitter Reactions: Babar Azam, Sarfaraz Ahmed flatten New Zealand on Day 1 – PAK vs NZ, 1st Test

Captain of Pakistan Babar Azam scored his ninth Test century and came on 161 at the end of the first matchday in the series opener against New Zealand to take the host team to 317/5.

Sarfaraz Ahmad, who was making his 50th Test appearance and first at home, contributed 86 runs from 153 balls. Ahmed and Babar shared a partnership of 196 runs for the fifth wicket, which took 56.3 overs to put Pakistan in a strong position.

Despite using three spinners, New Zealand was unable to control runflow effectively, with economic rates ranging from 3.4 to 4.9. Sarfaraz was sacked in the 86th over, caught by Patel at first slip, ending the partnership with Babar.

Babar narrowly avoided being handed lbw off Patel’s bowling late in the day, but successfully challenged the decision, not being out on 161 at stumps, with Agha Salman out of three.
