PAK vs NZ: "Race Is Very Long"- Twitter Reacts As Sarfaraz Ahmed Smashes His 4th Test Century

On the fifth day of Pakistan vs New Zealand’s second Test, Pakistani batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed sparked a revolution. He hit a thunderous century while attempting to reach the 319-run mark set by the Kiwis. In 135 balls, he brilliantly scored a century and kept Pakistan in the game. Sarfaraz batted effectively despite the pressure and struck 9 fours and 1 six to register a magnificent century.

In his Test career, Sarfaraz Ahmed has now reached his fourth century. After nearly 9 years, he achieved a Test century with his last Test hundred coming earlier in 2014. The fact that all three of these centuries arrived within the same year made them unique. He eventually ended the century wait by playing an outstanding knock during a time of need.

Sarfaraz Ahmed Keeps Pakistan In The Hunt

With the score at 125-5 at lunch, a series-ending loss was expected, but Sarfaraz and Shakeel gave the New Zealand bowlers a run for their money with a sixth-wicket partnership.

The home team’s 314 against Australia in Karachi in 1994 was the greatest victory while chasing in a Test in Pakistan.
Pakistan was shocked earlier by Sodhi and partner spinner Michael Bracewell, who took three wickets in the opening session. Pakistan began the game two runs without scoring any runs, but before reaching three figures, Imam-ul-Haq (12), captain Babar Azam (27), and Shan Masood (35) were all gone.

Haq was struck by a reckless drive from Sodhi, and the ball swung in and hit the stumps. Then, Azam and Masood scored 42 runs, and they were looking good when Bracewell entered the fray. Azam was first dismissed by him with a quick turning ball that was nicked to wicketkeeper Tom Latham, and Masood was caught admirably by Kane Williamson at mid-off after mishitting a lofted drive.
