Hello and welcome to Hagley Oval, Christchurch, for the 2nd Test Day 3 between Pakistan and New Zealand.
A classic century by Kane Williamson in a 215-run stand with Henry Nicholls hauled New Zealand into a strong position at 286 for three at stumps on day two of the second Test against Pakistan on Monday.
New Zealand, having recovered from 71 for three in Christchurch, ended the day trailing Pakistan’s first innings 297 by just 11 runs with seven wickets in hand.
Williamson, newly installed as the world’s number one Test batsman, was unbeaten on 112, his 24th century, with Nicholls on 89.
It is Williamson’s third century in as many Tests in the past month, although fortune was on his side. Late in the day, he was dropped twice and survived a run out when the bail had only partially dislodged in the split second it took to get his bat across the crease.

NZ vs PAK 2nd Test Day 3 Teams:
New Zealand: Matt Henry has been called into the squad as a replacement for Wagner and should slot into the Playing XI. The team management will again have to take a pick between Mitchell Santner and Daryl Mitchell. Given the conditions here, the latter is likely to get the nod.
Probable XI: Tom Latham, Tom Blundell, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling(w), Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Trent Boult
Pakistan: With Babar unavailable, the only possible change the visitors can consider is handing a debut to Imran Butt, the 24-year-old from Balochistan who scored 191 runs from three first-class games in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy before joining the team. He was also the highest run-scorer in the competition last year.
Probable XI: Shan Masood, Abid Ali, Azhar Ali, Fawad Alam, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Rizwan(w/c), Faheem Ashraf, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Abbas, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah
