According to the details, in the first Test played at Mount Monganoi, the Pakistani players lost six wickets for 81 runs due to poor batting. However, the 107-run partnership between Faheem Ashraf and captain Mohammad Rizwan improved the team’s overall performance.
For Pakistan, Faheem Ashraf played career-best 91-run innings and was caught out, while captain Mohammad Rizwan also stood out with 71 runs.

Pakistan’s opening batting line failed miserably but the middle order improved the overall score and saved Pakistan’s follow-on against New Zealand but New Zealand still has a 192-run lead over Pakistan.
Experts say that Pakistani fielders should perform well in the next innings and stop the Kiwis from scoring runs, otherwise, New Zealand already has a lead of 192 runs. If New Zealand scores more than 200 runs, then there will be difficulties for the national team
