Fawad Alam and Mohammad Rizwan got lucky in keeping Pakistan lunch on the last day at lunch in the first Test against New Zealand at Mount Maunganui on Wednesday.
With two sessions remaining, Pakistan was 137 for four with Alam on 48 and Rizwan on 20.
New Zealand need six more wickets to win while Pakistan, still 236 points from an unrealistic goal of 373 runs, saved by a tie.
The day got off to a promising start for New Zealand when Trent Boult lured Azhar Ali into a drive just for the ball to angle away, hit an edge and wicketkeeper BJ Watling to complete the sacking.
Azhar Ali was gone for 38 on the second morning and Pakistan was 75 for four.
But that should be New Zealand’s only success as Alam and Rizwan added 66 and offered opportunities at the same time.
Alam cut a ball off the short leg just in front of Henry Nicholls, an attempted drive by the gully just past the outstretched Tom Latham, and one of the gloves fell just past the cordon.
Rizwan blocked a shipment from Kyle Jamieson, which rebounded, slapped him in the arm, and distracted a hair’s breadth from the stump.
Pakistani captain Rizwan would also have memories of his debut Test, which was the last time Pakistan played in New Zealand four years ago.
It was the second test in Hamilton when the tourists were at tea for one on day 158 and lost nine wickets in the last session to claim the New Zealand victory.
