Brendon McCullum was six not out while Tom Latham hadn’t scored when the teams walked off for the break.

Off-spinner Mark Craig returned with his best figures of 7-94 — his first five-wicket haul — as Pakistan lost their last seven wickets for the addition of 70 runs after resuming the day at 281-3.

Opener Mohammad Hafeez made his highest Test score of 197.

The team members and officials from both nations 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.

The two teams abandoned the second day’s play in the third Test in Sharjah on Thursday as a mark of respect.
