Dubai Test: Pakistan need 261 after Taylor ton

Ross Taylor made his 12th Test century and his first against Pakistan as New Zealand declared on 250 for 9 to set Pakistan a target of 261 in 72 overs. Taylor and Mark Craig put on 60 for the seventh wicket at almost four an over, and after both departed to the legspinner Yasir Shah in the space of three balls, Tim Southee swung left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar for three successive sixes to bring the declaration from Brendon McCullum.
