New Zealand opener Jeet Raval battled hard on the opening day of the second test against Pakistan in Hamilton.
Brighter conditions indicated there should be more play on Saturday than there was on the opening day of the second cricket test between New Zealand and Pakistan in Hamilton.
Only 21 overs were possible due to rain at Seddon Park on Friday, as New Zealand reached 77-2 after being sent in by the tourists.
Rookie opener Jeet Raval was unbeaten on 35 while Ross Taylor, who is scheduled to have an eye operation on Wednesday following the completion of the two-test series, had raced to 29 off just 20 balls before rain forced the players from the field before 1pm.
Black Caps batsman Ross Taylor made a rapid start to his innings.
Play started on Saturday at the earlier time of 10:30am to make up for some of the lost time on Friday.
