Test 3: Final Day: Pakistan v West Indies: Antigua

Colin E. Croft

Lunch Interval:

The West Indies made a brisk start to their 1st innings. At lunch, they are 60-1, with Wavell Hinds, who made his maiden Test century in Barbados, on 14 not out, while opener Adrian Griffith, who was dropped by wicket-keeper Moin Khan from Waqar Younis's bowling when on 01, is on 16 not out.

The West Indian batsman out is Sherwin Campbell, who hit an enterprising 31, including six 4's, before he swiped at a long hop from Mustaq Ahmed, only to be caught at mid-wicket by Yousuf Youhana.

Earlier, the West Indies made very short work of the two remaining Pakistani batsmen as they added only two runs this morning.

Waqar Younis was the 1st to go, for 04, nicely caught by Ramnaresh Sarwan at backward square leg while trying to hook Courtney Walsh.

Soon afterwards, Walsh induced Mustaq Ahmed to edge to wicket-keeper Ridley Jacobs; out for no score; Pakistan all out for 269.

Yousuf Youhana was left not out on 103, his 2nd consecutive century.

Courtney Walsh was again the best West Indian bowler, finishing with 5-83, the 19th time that he had taken five wickets in Test cricket and the 100th time that he had done the feat in 1st class cricket. Walsh now has 448 Test wickets overall. So after a good start, the West Indies are 60-1 at lunch.
