Pakistan 173-2 at tea in first Test


Mohammad Hafeez was dismissed in the last over before tea for 98 as Pakistan reached 173-2 on the opening day of the first Test against England at Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Tuesday.

Hafeez was trapped leg-before by paceman Ben Stokes while Shoaib Malik was unbeaten on 72, the two adding 168 for the second wicket after Pakistan lost opener Shan Masood for two in the first session.

Pakistan, who won the toss and opted to bat, had to leave out leg-spinner Yasir Shah due to back spams while England missed paceman Steven Finn with a foot injury.
