The second Test match between Pakistan and New Zealand will be played at Seddon Park on Friday.
The match will start at 3:00am on Pakistan time while 11:00am on New Zealand standard time.
Pakistan reached Hamilton and team would take part in a training session on today (Wednesday), before facing the Black Caps in last game.
New Zealand beat Pakistan by eight wickets in the first Test at Hagley Oval, Christchurch as Pakistan struggled with batting on the fast green pitch.
Pakistan will be without their captain Misbah-ul-Haq in the second Test, who had to rush home owing to the death of his father-in-law.
Azhar Ali will lead the team for the second test.
New Zealand have inducted all-rounder Mitchell Santner and batsman Dean Brownlie as the hosts’ pinned hopes on series whitewash against the 1992 world cup champions.
As per the inside news, we are expecting a possible inclusion of Muhammad rizwan for the 2nd test in place of misbah rather than of Sharjeel Khan as selectors want to test him if he can be good in test matches keeping in mind that Pakistan team has to face Australia in the upcoming Month. If Rizwan does not impress the selectors in the 2nd test He might possibly be dropped in the Australian Tour.
