New Zealand dismissed for 200, lead Pakistan by 67

f

(Reuters) - Pakistan's seam attack dragged their side back into the first test against New Zealand on Saturday by capturing seven wickets before lunch, bowling the hosts out for 200 on the third day.

Sohail Khan, Rahat Ali and Mohammad Amir shared the wickets as the hosts were bundled out with a lead of 67 runs. New Zealand had bowled Pakistan out for 133 before tea on Friday at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.

The hosts had resumed well placed on 104 for three with Jeet Raval on 55 and Henry Nicholls on 29, but Pakistan settled into a testing line and length and only some power hitting from Colin de Grandhomme (29) and Tim Southee (22) inflated the lead.

Neil Wagner (21) was the last man out, giving Rahat his fourth wicket of the innings, while Trent Boult was left three not out.
