Pakistan on top despite defiant Williamson: 1st Test, Day 1 (Abu Dhabi)

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah (3-54) led the dual spin and pace to leave Pakistan in charge against New Zealand after Day 1.

Skipper Kane Williamson provided the lone resistance as the Kiwis were shot out out for 153. Williamson made a 112-ball 63 that included five boundaries, as he added 72 for the fourth wicket with Nicholls, who made 28.

Pakistan closed at 59-2, having lost both their openers, Imam-ul-Haq (six) and Mohammad Hafeez (20), before Haris Sohail and Azhar Ali stopped the rot.

Pakistan 59 for 2 (Haris 22*) trail New Zealand 153 (Williamson 63, Nicholls 26, Yasir 3-54) by 94 runs.
