Pakistan slip to 7th after series loss to New Zealand

On test debut at age 34, Somerville's spinning fingers helped cripple Pakistan's chase for 280 in the third and deciding test for a 123-run win to spark jubilant scenes.

Yasir began the Abu Dhabi Test with 195 wickets in 32 Tests and on the opening day grabbed three early wickets.

Between them, with a determined backup cast headed by Henry Nicholls and BJ Watling, the Black Caps' Abu Dhabi dressing room celebrations kicked off for a second time in a fortnight after sealing their first away test series win over Pakistan in 49 years.

The victory gave New Zealand a 2-1 series win after they had taken the first Test by a narrow four-run margin at the same venue.

The 32-year-old trapped nightwatchman Will Somerville leg before for four - his second wicket of New Zealand's second innings - to reach the milestone in his 33rd Test, beating Australian leg-spinner Clarrie Grimmett's record of 36 Tests set against South Africa in Johannesburg in 1936.

However, Pakistan's three dropped catches, two of them comparatively hard, would hurt them if New Zealand go on to draw the Test and walk away with a drawn three-match series.

The pair's 201-run partnership for the fourth wicket ended when Azhar became off-spinner Somerville's first test victim.

They've never done it in India, and in Pakistan just once in 1969 with victory in Lahore and two draws.

The 33-year-old batsman mistimed a sweep to offer Ajaz Patel a catch at short fine leg and leave Pakistan at 286-4.

Somerville, who took 4-75 in the first innings to finish with seven wickets in the match, broke a stubborn 43-run sixth-wicket stand between top scorer Babar Azam (51) and skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, who made 28.

"For those guys to come over here and show their experience and perform the way they did was massive for us getting across the line".

Pakistan were off to a disastrous start when Mohammad Hafeez, in his last innings before he retires from Test cricket, was bowled by fast bowler Tim Southee for eight.
