Pakistan and New Zealand face off on the second day of the third and final Test at Sharjah on Friday. Pakistan finished on a score of 281 for three at the end of the opening day, with Mohammad Hafeez and Misbah-ul-Haq unbeaten on scores of 178 and 38 respectively.

Day 2 was earlier postponed due to the untimely death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, who passed away at a Sydney hospital on Thursday morning. Hughes was struck behind his ear by a Sean Abbott bouncer during a Sheffield Shield game, and was in a critical condition until his death. The news of his death shocked the cricket fraternity, and several games were called off as a result.

New Zealand need to seriously analyse their bowling options, having tried as many as six bowlers without experiencing much success off them. It was mostly the spinning duo in the form of Vettori and Craig who managed to contain the Pakistani batsmen at times. Kiwi skipper Brendon McCullum would hope for some divine intervention on the following day in order to contain the Pakistanis.
