Shaheen strikes early in New Zealand’s second innings

Mohammad Hafeez has announced his 55th Test for Pakistan will be his last

Pakistan vs New Zealand 3rd Test, Day 3 Live Cricket Score: Azhar Ali, who scored a half-century on the second day of the final Test between Pakistan and New Zealand, will resume the Pakistan innings along with Asad Shafiq on Day 3.

Things came to a head when Hafeez was dismissed for a duck in the first over of the innings by Trent Boult.

The Abu Dhabi Test is Mohammad Hafeez's 55th Test game since making his debut against Bangladesh in Karachi in 2003.

"It s always nice to bat with Azhar", said Shafiq.

Yasir needs just one more wicket to become the fastest to 200 wickets, in his 33rd Test, a record now held by Australian leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett who reached the milestone in 36 Tests, 82 years ago.

Incidentally, Pakistan got the same first innings lead in the first test at the same venue before losing narrowly by four runs.

Pakistan are still 135 runs adrift of New Zealand's first innings total in which BJ Watling made a gutsy and vital 77 not out.

After working their way into a dominant position midway through the test, Pakistan lost 7-62 to give the Black Caps a sniff.

Paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi trapped Jeet Raval for nought while leg-spinner Yasir Shah had Tom Latham caught for ten, his 199th wicket in Tests.

Azhar Ali was in sumptuous touch from the outset.

He swept with aplomb against Ajaz Patel and had no troubles against the pacemen while Shafiq was content to play second-fiddle after Pakistan began the day at 139-3 in reply to NZ's 274.

Shafiq completed his century with a single off Somerville but fell leg before wicket off Patel in the next over. His 104 came from 259 balls and contained 14 boundaries.

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.

Shah was run out in freakish fashion when he lost his right shoe while going for the second run with captain Sarfraz Ahmed (25).

New Zealand couldn't get the breakthrough even after bowling 10 overs with the second new ball before lunch.
