After registering a comprehensive win at Abu Dhabi, Pakistani bowlers had a tough time in teh second Test against a resistant Kiwi batting line-up. Tom Latham has been in fine form in dealing with Pakistani spinners. He has shown great application and led the New Zealand batting well. After taking a narrow 10-run lead in the first innings against Pakistan, Brendon McCullum made a match out of a dead contest by declaring the New Zealand second innings at 250 for nine.
Pakistan were set a target of 261 runs to win with over two sessions to play. But a conservative batting approach saw the second Test end in a draw. Nonetheless, after a long time, a trans-Tasmanian team put up a strong contest in the United Arab Emirates.
