All the Pakistan slip-ups in the field in New Zealand’s first innings


Pakistan dropped more catches than they took, apart from leaking well over 50 extras

On their way to a record partnership on the third day in Christchurch, Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls were dropped at least twice each, which helped them score a double-century and a century respectively, and demoralise Pakistan. Here are all the chances the Pakistan fielders let go of in New Zealand’s first innings.

69.2 – Williamson dropped on 82
Naseem Shah to Williamson, FOUR, dropped in the slips! Pokes at an away-going delivery, extra bounce, he’s looking to punch on the up but gets a thick outside edge that goes between the two slip fielders. Oh, dear. Masood and Haris the men there.

73.6 – Williamson dropped on 107
Faheem Ashraf to Williamson, no run, Shan Masood has put down another one at gully! Width, Williamson cuts but this flies off the edge because of extra bounce, Masood a tad late moving to his left, got his hands to it but couldn’t hold on.
