This morning session saw pakistan lose 2 wickets, Afridi of course was out in his usual manner trying to hit the wrong ball, Younis Khan went to a bat and pad of a fine ball by Vettori Then some aggressive consolidation by Imran Nazir and Inzamam saw Pakistan go into lunch at 125 for 2 Imran has generally played well and only a couple of rash strokes in a test match inzamam is trying to play himself into top form The New Zealand bowlers have been used in short spells of pace and the main concentration was spin Vettori was the key bowler although was a tad expensive but as he settles one expects him to troble the Pak batsmen the most We will be back at 06:30GMT for the after lunch session for 'hot' test cricket Match State: Lunch - Day 1 Players are out now after lunch
