3rd Test, Tea: McCullum's ton powers NZ to 164-1

SHARJAH: New Zealand were 164-1 at tea on the second day of the third and final Test against Pakistan in Sharjah on Friday.

Brendon McCullum was on a quickfire 100 and with him Kane Williamson on 44 as New Zealand now trail Pakistan’s first innings total of 351 by 187 runs.

Off-spinner Mark Craig returned with his best figures of 7-94 — his first five-wicket haul — to wrap up Pakistan’s last seven wickets for 70 runs after they resumed at 281-3.

Opener Mohammad Hafeez made his highest Test score of 197.

In the morning players and officials from both teams observed a minute’s silence and wore black armbands to join the sporting world in mourning young Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, who died on Thursday after being struck by a bouncer. -AFP
