Sarfaraz Ahmed hit a century after eight years in Test cricket, Michael Bracewell spun his way to four wickets, and the Pakistan lower order put up a resistance as the second Test against New Zealand ended in a nail-biting draw in Karachi. Naseem Shah and Abrar Ahmed saw off the last 21 balls of the day to help the hosts salvage a draw under fading light.
The match went this way and that in its final two sessions. Pakistan were 80 for 5 at one stage before Sarfaraz and Saud Shakeel resuscitated the innings with a 123-run stand. The pendulum kept oscilating, but the umpires called the game off with three overs still left officially.
