Abu Dhabi: Fast bowler Rahat Ali's rich haul of 4-22 helped to give Pakistan firm control of the first test against New Zealand on Tuesday despite opening batsman Tom Latham hitting a fighting maiden test century. (Scorecard)
New Zealand failed to cope with Ali's reverse swing and was bowled out for 262 late on the third day. Left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar chipped in with 3-79.
Pakistan, which declared at 566-3, didn't enforce the follow-on and stretched its lead to 319 by reaching 15 without loss at stumps.
New Zealand resumed from 15-0 overnight, and Latham escaped two tough catch chances early before hitting 103 off 222 balls with 13 fours.
Corey Anderson made a rapid 48 off 70 balls with eight fours, but he and Latham fell to Ali after putting on 83 runs for the fourth wicket.
