The third day of the second Test between Pakistan and New Zealand in Dubai was completely dominated by star leg-spinner Yasir Shah who picked up 10 wickets in a day (8 wickets in the first innings and 2 wickets in the second innings).

His sensational bowling rattled New Zealand as the visitors lost their 10 wickets for 40 runs and were bowled out for just 90 runs in their first innings. Pakistan enforced the follow-on and New Zealand ended the third day on 131/2 and are still trailing by 197 runs. Both wickets were taken by Yasir Shah and thus he took a total of 10 wickets in a day and became the first Pakistani bowler to achieve this feat.
