After finishing without a Test win at home in 2022, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam vowed his team will play “positive and aggressive cricket”.

“We need to take things session-by-session and day-by-day. We’re working on it. It’s not that we need to play different cricket,” Babar Azam said.

However, with pitches offering nothing to the bowlers, it has been a dull batter vs batter contest in the last two series. Babar tried to make the last Test interesting by setting a 138 target in 15 overs for NZ. Pakistan declared on 311-8 but a target of 138 in 15 overs under fading light was tough for New Zealand, who finished on 59-1.

The National Stadium pitch helped slow bowlers as 23 of the 28 wickets in the first Test went to the spinners. At the same venue but on a different pitch, New Zealand will also look for a win after going without in their last five Tests.

“It does look different from the first Test… It has a bit more moisture. The preparations are shorter than normal, obviously, we had just a two-day turnaround. It’s going to be a hard slog to get a result. You have to bat really well and need to take 20 wickets,” NZ batting coach Luke Ronchi on Sunday.
