Pakistan survive England heroics to draw Abu Dhabi Test


The first Test between Pakistan and England ended in a thrilling draw in Abu Dhabi, as fading light affected the tourists’ Twenty20-style run chase. Needing 99 runs to win in the final session, Alastair Cook’s men ended play on 74 for 4. Earlier Pakistan suffered a batting collapse in the second innings to fall for 173, as debutant leg-spinner Adil Rashid recovered from his wicketless first innings’ figures of 0 for 163 to register an impressive 5 for 64. The draw means the teams remain locked at 0-0 heading into Thursday's second Test in Dubai.
