Pakistan hang in for a thrilling draw

New Zealand 449 (Conway 122, Latham 71, Abrar 4-149) and 277 for 5 dec (Bracewell 74*, Blundell 74, Hamza 1-38) drew with Pakistan 408 (Shakeel 125*, Imam 83, Ajaz 3-88) and 304 for 9 (Sarfaraz 118, Masood 35, Bracewell 4-75)

Karachi: Pakistan just about held on in Karachi late on day five to eke out a draw against New Zealand, but their winless home streak extended to eight Test matches with the latest result.

For the second time in their Test history, Pakistan drew a Test match with just one wicket remaining as the ICC World Test Championship series against New Zealand ended in a 0-0 draw.

With light fading in Karachi on day five, all four results were still on the cards. Pakistan were 15 runs away from a win and New Zealand just needed one wicket to win a Test series in Pakistan for the first time in more than fifty years.

Sarfaraz Ahmed, on a golden run since his comeback into the Test side this series, made his first Test century in nine years to keep Pakistan in the hunt after New Zealand had them at 0/2 at stumps on day four.

At 80/5, New Zealand seemed to be on course for a win when Sarfaraz and Saud Shakeel came together to resurrect Pakistan's innings with a century stand.

When that stand was broken after tea, New Zealand yet again edged ahead but Agha Salman hung around with Sarfaraz to push the game into the final hour.
