Pakistan All-Rounder Mohammad Hafeez Announces Retirement From Test Cricket

Paceman Shaheen Afridi trapped Jeet Raval for nought while Yasir Shah had Tom caught for ten

The three-match series is tied at 1-1 after New Zealand won the first Test in Abu Dhabi by four runs before Pakistan bounced back with an innings and 16-run win in the second in Dubai.

Debutant Will Somerville (4-75) had to wait until his 22nd over for his first test wicket when Azhar top-edged the tall off-spinner and Ajaz Patel (2-100) dismissed Shafiq to trigger Pakistan's collapse.

But some irresponsible batting by the Pakistan lower order only left them with a lead of 74 on the first innings - the same margin Pakistan had on NZ in the first test at the same venue.

New Zealand were then reduced to 26-2 at stumps with Kane Williamson unbeaten on 14 and nightwatchman Somerville on one not out to leave them trailing by 48 runs with eight wickets intact.

Off-spinner Bilal Asif, who picked up two wickets on Monday, completed his second five-wicket haul in tests. He struck the first ball of the day from Trent Boult for four and ensured Pakistan progressed at a lively pace after two days of grind from both side's batsmen.

Azhar remains key for Pakistan if they are to build any kind of first innings lead.

Earlier, resuming on 139-3, Pakistan had a productive first session. He got to 134 from 297 deliveries before he became Will Somerville's first test wicket, mis-hitting a sweep to the offie's spin partner at short fine leg.

Earlier, Azhar and Shafiq frustrated New Zealand´s search for early wickets as they took Pakistan to 224-3 at lunch.

Somerville then had Azam and Hasan Ali (nought) bowled and wrapped up the innings by getting Sarfraz caught at mid-wicket.
