Pakistan have retained their 1-0 series lead against New Zealand after the second Test in Dubai ended in a draw today.

A century from Ross Taylor had left the last day interestingly poised as New Zealand, who resumed from their overnight total of 167 for six, declared on 250 for nine and set Pakistan a target of 261 to win.

Taylor, who resumed the day on 77, went on to score 104.

Pakistan reached 196 for 5 in chase of the victory target of 261 when the game was called off.

Asad Shafiq 41 and Sarfraz Ahmed 24 put on an unbroken sixth-wicket stand of 43.

Pakistan had won the first Test in Abu Dhabi by 248 runs.

The third and final Test of the series starts in Sharjah on Wednesday before the sides meet in two Twenty20 internationals and five one-day internationals.

Final scores in the match are New Zealand 403 and 250 for nine declared; Pakistan 393 and 196 for five.
