In a hope to turn the tables in the second Test, a Misbah-ul-Haq sans Pakistan team won the toss and stand-in skipper Azhar Ali had no hesitation in bowling first on a green Hamilton track. The visitors delivered the first punch of the day as Mohammad Amir struck in the first over of the match to get rid of Tom Latham, who did not even open his account.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, the next man on the crease along with opener Jeet Raval, took the responsibility to steady the ship ahead as the duo added 34 for the second wicket before Pakistan made a recovery trapping big fish, Williamson.

Ross Taylor, who will undergo an eye surgery after this match, played attacking cricket before heavy rain forced the players to take early lunch. Incessant rain then forced umpires to call early stumps with New Zealand at 77/2.

98 overs will be bowled on Day 2 with the play starting half an hour early.
