Dubai: Leg-spinner Yasir Shah put Pakistan in control of the second Test on Monday with a career-best 8-41 as New Zealand rallied to 131/2 in its second innings after being forced to follow-on.
The tourists were dismissed for only 90 runs in the first innings to give Pakistan a massive lead of 328 on the third day.
Yasir Shah ripped through the Kiwi's batting order after picking up eight wickets for 41 runs. He also became the first bowler to get 100 wickets in United Arab Emirates.
Yasir, whose previous best of 7-76 came against Sri Lanka at Galle in 2015, took three wickets in an over after rain delayed the start by an hour at Dubai stadium.
Opener Jeet Raval top-scored with 31 while skipper Kane Williamson finished with 28 not out.
Raval was unfortunate to get bowled by Yasir's delivery as he tried to reverse sweep but the ball deflected off his bat to his thigh and hit the stumps.
New Zealand were rattled earlier in the day after Yasir picked up three wickets in an over, leaving the Kiwis at 63-4 at lunch.
