New Zealand will start day four of the third and final Test against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.

Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has announced his retirement from Test cricket after an indifferent run of form in the series against New Zealand.

Shah, who has four wickets in the match, needs one more to replace Australian Clarrie Grimmett as the fastest man to claim 200 test victims.

With Pakistan facing a familiar top-order collapse, Azhar stitched together a 68-run stand with Haris Sohail (34) to ease their nerves.

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

New Zealand's Will Somerville and teammates celebrate the dismissal of Pakistan's Azhar Ali.

He delivered a presentation on the subject to a local town board, who backed his message on Monday night. Brooke Best told HuffPost her son initially asked her to lead the charge to have the law changed.

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.

Azhar edged medium pacer Colin de Grandhomme through the slips to complete his first century since May 2017 against the West Indies in Dominica - and his first hundred against New Zealand.

Somerville ended his first test innings with the ball with 4-75 off 36 overs, bowling well to the tail.

Shafiq brought up his 12th Test ton with a sharp single off Somerville before falling leg-before to Patel to a straight delivery. His 104 came from 259 balls and contained 14 boundaries. With no assistance in the wicket for the quicks, Tim Southee and Boult both deserved a little more reward for their sterling efforts.

Kane Williamson and nightwatchman Somerville saw the visitors through to stumps at 26-2, still trailing by 48 runs, but considering even a lead of 150 would put pressure on Pakistan in the fourth innings, they at least hold a slim chance of repeating their first test victory.
