New Zealand will be in charge and favored for the series win when it will probably decide to end its second innings and leave enough time to bowl out Pakistan.

Southee struck first, with a handsome delivery that straightened and beat the outside edge of Mohammad Hafeez.

"A fantastic performance to be a part of, we know how formidable Pakistan are, certainly in their Pakistan they're a very hard side to beat".

Pakistan had a chance to take the new ball over the last 24 overs but declined, setting defensive fields to keep down New Zealand's run rate.
