Neil Wagner has won the hearts of people after it was revealed later that he had a fractured toe when he steps onto the field on Day 3 of the first test against Pakistan and took 2 wickets. Such instances set the right example for “Never Give Up”. The Kiwi speedster was not included in the early part of Pakistan innings due to injury by the delivery bowled by Shaheen Afridi on the second day of the first Test match.

But the moment Wagner came on to bowl on the third day he Kept the same intent and stick to his bowling strength where he delivered short balls and dominated Pakistani Batsman. The X-Ray reports which were conducted on the second day revealed that his right toe was fractured but he was advised by New Zealand medical staff that if he can bear the pain then he can step on to the field on Day 3.

Taking about other New Zealand pacers they dominated the Pakistani batting lineup where Tim Southee and Trent Boult shared two wickets each and Kyle Jamieson picked 3 wickets. Pakistan skipper Mohammad Rizwan and his team have a mammoth task in order to save this test match against the host but they successfully managed to avoid follow on. As Pakistan has been bowled out in the first innings where the kiwis have the lead of 192 runs and looking at the current situation Pakistani bowlers have to bowl really well on the 4th day of the first test in order to save this test match for Men in Green.
