St. John's The third and final Test between West Indies and Pakistan is sitting on a knife's edge going into today's final day at the Antigua Recreation Ground. The West Indies are on 144 for four, 72 runs short of the victory target. Hopes rest with captain Jimmy Adams, who is on 15 not out, who with Wavell Hinds (63) turned the match in West Indies' favour.

With the first two matches drawn, the winner of today's contest will take the series.

Fast bowler Wasim Akram, who took six wickets in the first innings, has taken three wickets as Pakistan seek to win their first Test series in the Caribbean.
