Pakistan is dismissed for 408

Pakistan was disqualified after a first-innings total of 408 on day four of the Test in reaction to New Zealand’s score of 449 at Karachi Thursday.

Saud Shakeel was unbeaten at 125 after the last man, Abrar Ahmed, was sent off without scoring, as Pakistan gave up a 41-run lead.

New Zealand spinners Ajaz Patel and Ish Sodhi both took three wickets each.

Shakeel was able to keep his wicket intact for 488 minutes playing throughout the day on Wednesday and then added the score of 83 on the third wicket along with Imamul Haq (83) and 150 for the fifth wicket along with Sarfaraz Ahmed (78).

However, New Zealand spinner Ajaz Patel dismissed Agha Salman (41) and Hasan Ali (four) as Pakistan dropped from 397-9 to 385-5. The team lost four wickets and only 12 runs from 27 balls on the day.

Shakeel, who scored 17 boundaries, was fortunate to save his life from batsman Tim Southee when Tom Latham made a catch with a single touch at short cover when the batter was 102.

The two-match series is tied following the first Test, also in Karachi, was the draw.
