Mohammad Hafeez completed his 11th Test half-century during the first day of the third and final Test against New Zealand at Sharjah on Wednesday. This adds to Hafeez’s remarkable run in form, having scored 96 and 101 in the first Test at Abu Dhabi, as well as experiencing a golden run with the bat during the recently-completed Test series against Australia. Pakistan were 101 for one at the end of 34 overs on Day 1.

Pakistan earlier won the toss, their second such success in the current series, and elected to bat. Hafeez was brought in place of a struggling Taufeeq Umar, while Ehsan Adil was replaced by Mohammad Talha. New Zealand made the only change of bringing veteran spinner Daniel Vettori in place of James Neesham.
