The 1st Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka ended in a draw in Abu Dhabi, with Pakistan untroubled but well short of victory at 158-2 when the two captains shook hands.

Pakistan were set a total of 302 to win the match, via Cricinfo, with a maximum of 67 overs left in the match.

Mohammad Hafeez scored an unbeaten 80 to steer them towards safety, with Pakistan batting for 52 overs before a draw was agreed. Ahmed Shehzad contributed 55 to the cause.

Here's the scorecard for Pakistan's second innings.

The match began with Sri Lanka posting 204 for their first innings, notable for Angelo Matthews' 91 and figures of 5-58 for Pakistan bowler Junaid Khan.

Pakistan replied with 383 to take a commanding lead in the match. Their first innings was driven by centuries for Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq—the pair sharing a 201-run stand for the fourth wicket.

Sri Lanka were under pressure, but they responded with a fine batting performance in their second innings to bring a more even feel to the contest.

Once again Matthews starred, this time scoring 157 not out and batting for 454 minutes to take Sri Lanka to a total of 480-5 declared. Kushal Silva and Dinesh Chandimal also weighed in with scores in the 80s.

Their 300-plus lead, and the timing of Sri Lanka's declaration, meant that all three results were effectively possible heading into Pakistan's second innings.

Pakistan never looked like chasing down the total, however, and Sri Lanka's bowlers were unable to rattle them with the early wickets required to set up a victory.

The two teams now move on to Dubai for the 2nd Test, which begins on January 8.
