Scorecard
Pakistan could not get in too many overs against Auckland on the second day of their match at Eden Park's outer oval. Morning rain prevented any play until 1.40pm, and the late start left Auckland in no man's land at stumps.
They were still 154 runs short of Pakistan's total, and it may be that for any real benefit to come from the match, a declaration will be required early tomorrow so Pakistan can leave Auckland a target.
However, Rob Nicol, another promising batsmen, scored 60, including three sixes and six fours, off 107 balls. Both overnight batsmen, Mark Richardson (23) and Tim McIntosh (32), were dismissed by Shabbir Ahmed, who ended the day with 2 for 24.
Matt Horne dug his way to 16 not out in over an hour and a half. He was accompanied by Reece Young, the wicketkeeper, who remained on three not out. Mohammad Sami had a horror day, bowling 11 no-balls and ending wicketless from his 14 overs for 51 runs.
