Azhar’s triple-century cemented Pakistan’s dominance on the second day of the Pakistan vs New Zealand Test Match on Friday, October 14.

Azhar Ali marched to 302 not out, becoming the fourth Pakistan player to score a test triple-hundred. Azhar’s marathon 469-ball knock anchored Pakistan’s first-innings total of 579 for 3 declared, before West Indies moved to 69 for 1 in the 22 overs they had to face till stumps.

West Indies had their moments, but were not able to capitalise on them. Bishoo found Azam’s outside edge early in his innings, only for the ball to fly to the right of slip. A few overs later, Chase got Azhar to nick to slip, where Jermaine Blackwood spilled a sharp chance that should have been taken.
