“Sport’s dog’s breakfast”: Due to poor lighting, the NZ star rejects the call to end the second Test against PAK with three overs remaining

The second Test ended up being close, with Pakistan losing by 15 runs and New Zealand winning by one wicket before the umpires decided that the light wasn’t good enough to continue the game.

On Friday, the second Test between Pakistan and New Zealand came to an extraordinary conclusion, with both teams having a real chance of winning.

Despite losing wickets at the other end as they chased a target of 319, Pakistan still had a chance to win thanks to Sarfaraz Ahmed’s hard-hitting century on Day 5.

With less than 10 overs remaining in the day, the Kiwis brought in the fielders to surround the two tail-end batters, and Sarfaraz took the 10th wicket after scoring 118 in 176 balls.

Naseem Shah, however, reduced Pakistan’s lead to just 32 runs when the last wicket partnership began by hitting over the field and finding the boundary a few times.

When the umpires determined that the light was insufficient to allow the match to continue. Pakistan only required 15 runs to win with approximately three overs remaining in the day.

The second Test, like the first, ended in a draw after both teams shook hands. The decision to possibly end the test before a result could have been announced irked a few people. Scott Styris, a former New Zealand all-rounder, and Kiwi star Jimmy Neesham were among them.

We leave the field with three overs remaining because both teams had a chance to win. Test cricket is in trouble, as evidence A. Congratulations to both teams for persevering,” Styris tweeted.

The following is Neesham’s response to Styris. After enduring four days of crap to prepare for a truly captivating conclusion, this s**t occurs. With the draw in the series against New Zealand, Pakistan has ended an alarming streak of home Test defeats.

“What an absolute dog’s breakfast of a sport” They had previously been defeated 3-0 by an aggressive England team.

Pakistan was whitewashed domestically for the first time. Pakistan had lost the previous Test against Australia in a series in 2022. Making it four consecutive defeats in home Test matches.
