The victory gave New Zealand a 2-1 series win after they had taken the first Test by a narrow four-run margin at the same venue.

The series saw New Zealand win the first Test, while Pakistan staged a comeback in the second to level things.

However, if the series result is reversed and Sri Lanka win 2-0, then they will rise to 97 points while retaining sixth place and New Zealand will fall behind Australia in the fifth position on 99 points.

Pakistan made a flawless start to the fourth day when legspinner Yasir Shah became the quickest bowler to reach 200 test wickets by dismissing nightwatchman Will Somerville for 4.

For Pakistan, the only moment of joy came when leg-spinner Yasir Shah dismissed Somerville to complete 200 Test wickets and that too in the fastest time.

Williamson was batting on 139 not out and Nicholls was unbeaten on 90 when umpires called it a day.

When Yasir trapped nightwatchman Will Somerville leg before for four with his 13th delivery of the day, he reached the 200-wicket mark in just his 33rd Test.

Since taking seven wickets on debut against Australia in 2014, Yasir has been a key figure in Pakistan's Test team.

His two-note solo on "Boredom" was like the Duchamp toilet, nothing was the same afterwards. He did so with the most immaculate melodies ever hammered through an overdriven amp.

It was a smart declaration - giving Pakistan enough temptation to chase for the victory, but some brilliant bowling made sure they never got close.

Pakistan had hopes of an emphatic win once Shaheen Shah Afridi had Ross Taylor caught hooking for 22 with the total at 60-4.

But Shah dropped Williamson on 80 and 106.

Nicholls also survived a loud leg-before appeal off Yasir when on three, but Pakistan erred by not reviewing the not-out decision as the ball tracker showed it would have hit the leg stump.

His 14 for 184 were the second best match figures in a Test for Pakistan, behind the former captain and current prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan, who bagged 14 for 116 against Sri Lanka in Lahore in 1982.

New Zealand, which conceded a 74-run first-innings lead, lead Pakistan by 38 runs with six wickets in hand.

He has taken 114 of his 200 wickets on spinner-friendly wickets in the United Arab Emirates in 17 Tests. First innings centurion Azhar Ali perished for five, edging one to wicketkeeper BJ Watling off Colin de Grandhomme. PAKISTAN (1st Innings) 348 (Azhar Ali 134, Asad Shafiq 104; W.E.R. Somerville 4-75).

Captain Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls combined in a terrific double-century stand to propel New Zealand's lead against Pakistan to a valuable 198 runs in the third Test on Thursday.
