Follow live updates from day four of the third and final test between the Black Caps and Pakistan.
Pakistan batsman Mohammad Hafeez has announced his retirement from Test cricket.
Pakistan was cruising along at 286-3 on the back of double-century stand between Azhar (134) and Shafiq (104) before New Zealand came back strongly to bowl out the home team for 348 after tea.
The ongoing third Test against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi, in which Hafeez made a first-innings duck, will be the 38-year-old opener's last as he focuses on limited-overs internationals.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah (1-5) had Latham caught in the deep and will be needing only one wicket tonight to become the fastest bowler in test history to complete 200 test wickets.
Earlier, resuming on 139-3, Pakistan had a productive first session.
But both fell within 18 runs of each other, Azhar mistiming a sweep off debutant Will Somerville while Shafiq was trapped leg-before by Ajaz Patel with the score at 304. They looked to be headed for a lead of over 150 when Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq were batting but eventually mustered just 74.
Shafiq's 12th test century off 259 balls included 14 fours as he used his feet well against the spinners and played some delightful cut shots against seamers.
Once the century-makers had departed, Pakistan lost wickets regularly with the comedic highlight being Shah's run out as he shed his shoe turning for a risky second, hesitated, went through with his charge for the bowler's end in his sock and was found short of his ground.
Boult has figures of 2-54 while fellow paceman Tim Southee has taken 1-39.
Kane Williamson and nightwatchman Somerville saw the visitors through to stumps at 26-2, still trailing by 48 runs, but considering even a lead of 150 would put pressure on Pakistan in the fourth innings, they at least hold a slim chance of repeating their first test victory.
