Imam-ul-Haq cleared to rejoin team after head injury

  • Offspinner Will Somerville has been summoned to the New Zealand test squad after two first-class matches for Auckland

A knock of 86 off 120 deliveries at a point when no batsmen could face the charging Pakistani pacers, in their own backyard, gives a glimpse of the level of potency and experience that dwells within Ross Taylor.

There was concern for the 22-year-old after he was carried into an ambulance, but Fakhar and Babar all but ended New Zealand's hope of sealing a series win with a century stand. It was a disappointing start for the visitors as they lost Collin Munro for 13.

That came after captain Kane Williamson's luck ran out early in his innings when he was dismissed for just one run due to a deflected drive into his stumps for a rare run out.

Will Young and Tim Seifert were out in consecutive balls from former test bowler Ehsan Adil and when Glenn Phillips departed to the same bowler shortly after tea New Zealand A were at risk of seeing the tour end on a disappointing note.

New Zealand kept losing wickets at regular intervals while Ross Taylor was taking charge at other end.


After restricting the opponents to 209-9 in 50 overs, led by Fakhar Zaman in top gear, the target was reached with 9.3 overs to spare. Afridi, victor of the Man of the Match award, bowled aggressively, in all of his three spells and was rewarded with 4 for 38. Zaman and Babar Azam played with positive intent scoring runs easily.

Zaman scored a scintillating 88 before departing to Lockie Ferguson while playing a pull shot.

Undeterred by Imam's injury, Zaman added a quick 101 for the second wicket with Babar Azam who made a 50-ball 46 before both fell in the same Ferguson over.

Asked to make first use of the Abu Dhabi wicket, Pakistan bowlers did not show if they were under too much pressure in this must-win match.

The last match of the series is in Dubai on Sunday.
