Catch all live action from Day 3 of the first test between Pakistan and New Zealand in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.Day 2 Report: Left arm Trent Boult helped New Zealand foil Pakistan's advantage with four wickets as the first test was evenly stable after Monday in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. A striking 4-54 separated the bats from the Pakistanis who were cursed out for 227 in response to the first rounds of New Zealand's 153.

He was well supported by debutant Spinner Ajaz Patel (2-64) and Colin de Grandhomme (2-30) as Pakistan managed a first round lead only 74.

New Zealand then fought to 56-1 when a bad light forced the judges to end the day with 4.2 Overs still remaining. The black caps are still traceable by 18 runs with nine remaining wickets.

Skipper Kane and Williamson will hold the key for his team when he went with 27 not out with him and Opener Jeet Raval on 26 not out. The duo added 56 for the second wicket after Tom Latham was bowled by Hassan Ali in vain on the second, negotiating the bowling spin well under cloudy conditions.

New Zealand can take the fact that Pakistan lost a test instead of last year against Sri Lanka in 21 runs, falling target of only 136.

Pakistan wasted a good chance of taking big lead by means of poor blows, with only Be'er Azzam (62), Asad Shafiq (43) and Haris Suhail (38) making significant contributions.

Azam hit five limits in his 109 ball ball, and he was the last man when he passed the bolt for the BJ Watling wicktkeeper to catch a low dive.

Pakistan resumed at 59-2 but lost the night bats Sohail and Azhar Ali (22) in the space of only six balls the same result of 91.

Suhail was more sure of a pair that added 64 for the third wicket. He hit the four borders, but was caught in a short half-mile by LeT after a flimsy shot by Sudhi's.

Azhar was thrown by Jeet Raval from Bolet on 19 and was again lucky two runs later when not given as the fast-paced reviewer reviewed the foot before the decision.

But Bolt let out the last laugh, and forced Azhar's bat on the edge of Whotling's diving catch.

Despite losing two wickets during the morning meeting, Pakistan were well placed at 144-4 at noon, seeking a big lead to get a 1-0 advantage in a three-match series.

But Bolt checked their progress by dismissing Asad Shafiq to 43, crossing the inner edge. It was 174-5, the beginning of a section that saw the last six wickets of Pakistan falling on 63 runs.

Patel had Ahmed Surferz grabbed a twisted broom for two, Bilal Asif stumped by Watling for 11, while Bolt, Grenadome and Neil Wagner also chipped in.

Wagner, who played his 37th test, achieved a personal milestone by becoming the eighth goalie in New Zealand to take 150 wickets when he is Peter Yasser Shah nine.

Richard Hadlee leads the chart of the New Zealand bowlers with 431 wickets in 86 tests.

(219 in 55), Chris Cairns (218 at 62) and Danny Morrison (219 at 55), Chris Cairns (218 at 62) and Timothy Southee 160 at 48).

The second test will be held in Dubai (November 24-28) and the third in Abu Dhabi (3-7 December).

We returned to our afternoon meeting. BJ Watling and Henry Nichols will continue their rounds. For the hosts, Muhammad Abbas will be the first bowl.

… Day 3, Session 2 …

New Zealand will be disappointed because there were not many questions the court threw at them. They needed a little more implementation. After saying this, do not take anything from the Pakistan bowlers. They worked hard and received their rewards. They'll come back and do the same. Join us for a meeting for lunch in time!

The meeting of Pakistan without a doubt! 3 massive wickets almost one towards the end of the session. The first is the biggest, the New Skipper. Ross Taylor hosted until he was there in the middle but played one shot too much and was caught parachuting up front by Hassan Ali special. The latter picked another one as he was well set and Raval was caught behind.

Wattling shuffles across going on the back foot, he tries to flick but misses to get hit on the pillows. The next appeal and the judge agrees. Wattling goes upto his partner and then the signals. Re rollays roll and it shows that it goes down the leg. Wattling survives to fight another day and New Zealand has to breathe a sigh of relief. 133/4

Wattling is a gonner! He got the LBW but he reviewed. Looks out to be honest.

49.2 B Assif to Wattling, works with a mid-wicket turn. 133/4

49.1 B Assif to Wattling, giving him the air around, the batsman keeps it. 133/4

46.6 M Abbas Watling, again a straight line. It seems a plan with two middle wickets in place, they hope for the batter to flip it happily to one. This does not happen, because Watling flies him all the way to the man in the middle of the break. 128/4

46.5 M Abbas to Wattling, on stump and he is transported in the middle of the wicket. 128/4

46.4 M Abbas Watling, a bit too straight this time, BJ works it in the middle of the wicket. 128/4

The top edge was induced but there was no player there. 128/4

45.5 B Assif to Nicholas, giving him a nice loop on the middle, HN prods ahead and trying to save it. 126/4

45.4 Unnamed: B Assif to Nicholas, good turn over there! However, this bowling should have been a little closer to the outside of the page. It floats off the road, Nicholas first thinks of playing it but then seeing the turn, pulling the shot. 126/4

44.4 M Abbas to Nicholas, comes around the gate but the line is not right, he's out and the bat allows it. 123/4

33.4 Y Shah to K Williamson, OUT! Bowled 'em! A peach out of nowhere from Yasir Shah. The New Zealand skipper has a lapse of concentration and plays back to a ball that he should've probably been ahead to. The ball is around middle and turns away very slightly. Enough to beat the outside edge of Williamson's bat as he is looking to defend. The ball seems to have clipped the off pole and the Pakistan players start celebrating. The umpire though, just to be sure, take it upstairs to check if the stumps have not been disturbed by Sarfraz. Replays roll in and it shows Yasir has cleaned Williamson up. Huge wicket in the context of the game! The stand of 86-runs comes to an end and Williamson walks back after getting a start. New Zealand in a spot of bother, they are effectively 12 for 2. 86/2

We are all set for the action to resume. Jeet Raval and Kane Williamson will resume their innings. Mohammad Hafeez will complete his over. He has two balls to go. Here we go…

The first hour of play will be crucial and New Zealand's skipper and best batsman, Kane Williamson will have to shoulder the responsibility of guiding the Black Caps through this phase of play. The pitch is certainly a tough one to play on but not unplayable. Pakistan, on the other hand will be looking to knock off the mainstay and bowl out the visitors cheaply as batting fourth on this pitch will be really tricky and they'd like their target to be as low as possible. Join us for live action in a bit!

Welcome to Day 3 of the first Test between Pakistan and New Zealand. We have had riveting action over the past two days and the match is pretty evenly poised right now. New Zealand after a dismal Day 1 have done really well to recover and pull this game back on Day 2 and generate interest. Looking forward to today's play, one of the factors could be how the weather behaves. There is forecast for showers over the day but we hope it stays away as the Test enters the 'moving day' and we will get a fair idea as to who will be ahead by the end of today.

… Day 3, Session 1 …

The surface was expected to prefer the batsmen, but it has proved quite even and provided something to all. Day 3 is poised quite well and it could make for good viewing for the neutrals. That is, of course, if it doesn't rain as there's some forecast for it. For now, the action will begin on time at 1000 local (0600 GMT). Do join in for all the action. Take care!

A good day for the Black Caps. They took 8 Pakistan wickets since the day started, restricting the lead to just 74 runs. Trent Boult was the leader of the pack as he ran riot with a 4-wicket haul, with the rest chipping in with handy contributions of their own. If not for Babar Azam and his solid fifty, Pakistan's lead would have been slimmer. In response, New Zealand lost Latham early as Hasan Ali removed him but Kane Williamson and Jeet Raval have looked as assured as anyone after that with their stand currently unbeaten on 56. Their team trails by just 18 runs.

So, the umpires take another reading and decide it isn't good enough now to continue. Play has been called off due to bad light. That's STUMPS ON DAY 2!

22.4 M Hafeez to Raval, Around the wicket now, floated on off, blocked from the front foot. 56/1

22.3 M Hafeez to Williamson, Flat and short on leg, Kane works it off his pads and sends it to deep mid-wicket for one run. 56/1

22.1 M Hafeez to Williamson, Minimal spin around off, kept out off the back foot. 55/1

The umpire takes out his light meter and checks. The reading shows it's fine enough to continue. The floodlights are on. Also, Mohammad Hafeez into the attack now.

13.2 Y Shah to Williamson, Tossed up well outside off, going away, forces Williamson to play away from the body and the edge is drawn. Luckily for the Kiwi captain, it goes wide of first slip to third man. Two to the total. 30/1

13.1 Y Shah to Williamson, Bit quicker through the air on middle and leg, pushed back down the track off the back foot. 28/1

12.6 M Abbas to Raval, Good length ball on off, Raval nicely gets behind the line and blocks it with a straight bat. 28/1

12.5 M Abbas to Raval, Beaten on the drive this time! Abbas serves it on a fuller length outside off and gets it to shape away, Raval is tempted into the drive and is beaten. Abbas is getting closer and closer to taking his first wicket. 28/1

12.4 M Abbas to Raval, Beauty to beat the bat! Abbas is unreal to southpaws from 'round the wicket angle. His line just around off coupled with a wee bit of away movement always catches the batsman in trouble. This time Jeet is lucky not to edge it. 28/1

12.3 M Abbas to Raval, Pitches it on a length around off, Raval drives it towards extra cover where Bilal Asif dives and parries it to mid off. Good effort! 28/1

12.2 M Abbas to Raval, Once again Raval prods forward to defend but this time it takes the inside edge and deflects off his pads to covers. 28/1

11.4 Y Shah to Raval, Stays right behind the line and defends well. 25/1

11.3 Y Shah to Raval, Coming in once more, Jeet is deep inside the crease as he looks to turn it in front of short leg. Is rapped on the pads instead. 25/1

11.2 Y Shah to Raval, Outside off, with some width on offer, played through point for a brace. 25/1

11.1 Y Shah to Raval, The inside edge has saved him there. Yasir flights it up outside off, it spins back in off the rough as Raval presses forward to defend. The ball strikes his back pad, but not before taking the inside edge. 23/1

Yasir Shah returns.

10.6 M Abbas to Williamson, Touch fuller in length, it's blocked comfortably to end the over. 23/1

10.5 M Abbas to Williamson, Too straight in line, wristed in front of square leg. 23/1

10.4 M Abbas to Williamson, Not out! Williamson survives. Poor review from all involved. Abbas angles it in on middle and leg, it keeps going down and catches Kane on the pads. A big appeal goes up, but the umpire shakes his head. Abbas speaks with his skipper and then it's taken upstairs. Replays show the ball to be missing the leg stump. Clearly. Review lost. 23/1

Review taken. It's taken by Pakistan for an lbw decision against Kane Williamson. Looks to be going down leg to the naked eye.

10.3 M Abbas to Williamson, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 23/1

9.3 H Sohail to Raval, Goes with the spin and turns it to square leg. 23/1

9.2 H Sohail to Williamson, Short and wide outside off, slapped the punch to sweeper cover for a single. 23/1

9.1 H Sohail to Williamson, A lot of air on off stump, driven to mid off. 22/1

Haris Sohail to roll his arm over.

8.6 Shah to Raval, Shout for a leg before, turned down. Maybe an inside edge there. Looped up leg break around off, turns in sharply and catches Jeet Raval on the pads as he prods ahead to defend. Seems some bat is involved. 22/1

8.5 Y Shah to Williamson, Spinning away from the batsman, it's cut through to sweeper cover for a run. 22/1

8.4 Y Shah to Williamson, FOUR! But that was a close one. Quicker one from Yasir, Williamson backs away to cut and almost gets bowled. Luckily, he played it well enough to cut it past short third man for a boundary. 21/1

4.4 M Abbas to Williamson, Wide outside off, reaches out to it and slaps it to the man at cover-point. 11/1

4.3 M Abbas to Williamson, Beaten! After bringing two back in, Abbas makes this one go away. On a back of a length, Williamson pushes inside the line and misses. 11/1

4.2 M Abbas to Williamson, Attacks the stumps, doesn't give Williamson much room with this length ball. The batter can only stay behind the line and block. 11/1

2.5 M Abbas to Raval, Fraction straight in line, flicked towards mid-wicket where Bilal Asif makes a diving stop to his left. The batsmen cross over. 3/1

The off stump goes for the toss and that's the first breakthrough for the home side. 0/1

Hasan Ali to bowl from the other end.

0.6 M Abbas to Raval, Good length delivery outside the line of off stump, left alone to end the over. 0/0

0.5 M Abbas to Raval, That's a brave leave from Jeet Raval. Abbas pitches it close to off on a length and as Raval lets it go, it nips back in. Whiskers past the off stick. Super close, that. 0/0

0.4 M Abbas to Raval, Just ahead of a length, on the fourth stump line, Raval plants his front foot forward and shoulders arms. 0/0
