SHARJAH (TIP): The atmosphere was one where all the players out in the middle took things one at a time without any loud appeals and bouncers, especially the New Zealand side. Pakistan’s Mohammed Hafeez who missed out on his first double ton in Test cricket was his usual calm self and dedicated his highest Test score to Phil Hughes, who passed away in Sydney on Thursday after being hit by a bouncer during a Sheffield Shield game on Tuesday. “The mood was really depressing and while batting, thoughts of Phil going through those moments came to my mind, in fact all our minds. I just took it one ball at a time and I would like to dedicate my highest Test score to Phil Hughes,” said Hafeez, shortly after the end of the second day’s play in Sharjah. Hafeez continued: “There is no doubt that the innings played by [Brendon] McCullum was outstanding. He just put the entire pressure on us. And to be honest, our spinners also did not bowl that well today.
