New Zealand with strong lead at stumps
HAMILTON, New Zealand, March 29 (AFP) - New Zealand were 260 for two in reply to Pakistan's first innings of 104 at stumps on day three
of the rain-hit third and final cricket Test here Thursday.
Openers Mathew Bell and Mark Richardson both completed their first Test centuries, Bell reaching 105 while Richardson was 106 not out
alongside Craig McMillan on seven at the close.
Just 43.1 overs were possible after rain and bad light shortened the day, with New Zealand adding 100 runs to their overnight score for the loss
of two wickets.
The second day on Wednesday was washed out completely.
