The third and final test match between Pakistan and New-Zealand is underway in Abu Dhabi. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bat first against Pakistan.
Yasir Shah dismissed three New Zealand batsmen to come within two wickets of becoming the fastest man to 200 wickets in Test cricket on day one of the third and final Test in Abu Dhabi on Monday. The leg-spinner trapped opener Jeet Raval on 45, bowled Ross Taylor for nought with his next ball and then Henry Nicholls for one before New Zealand reached 100-4 at lunch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
There is all to play for in the match as the series is level at 1-1, after New Zealand won the first Test by four runs in Abu Dhabi and Pakistan bounced back with an innings and 16 runs victory in Dubai.
