Pak vs NZ: Pakistan 32-1 at lunch on last day, 2nd test v NZ
Dubai, United Arab Emirates: New Zealand got early success after setting Pakistan a tricky target of 261 on the last day to win the second cricket test.
Pakistan lost opening batsman Taufeeq Umar before moving to 32-1 at lunch Friday after New Zealand declared its second innings at 250-9, an overall lead of 260.
Ross Taylor returned to form after his disappointing scores of 0, 8 and 23 in the last three innings to score 104 off 133 balls , his first test century of the year.
Taylor added 60 invaluable runs with Mark Craig after New Zealand resumed at the overnight 167-6 before both fell to Yasir Shah (5-79) in the space of three deliveries to give the legspinner his first five-wicket haul in tests.
