 New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson on Saturday continued his prolific run with the bat as he scored his 32nd half century to put his team in the driver's seat on the opening day of the first Test against Pakistan at the Bay Oval.

At the end of the day's play, the Black Caps had scored 222/3 in 87 overs, with Williamson staying unbeaten on 94 alongside Henry Nicholls who was batting at 42 at Stumps.

Put into bat, Pakistan had a great start as left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi both the openers -- Tom Latham (4) and Tom Blundell (5) -- with New Zealand having just 13 runs on the scoreboard.
