67.5 49.7 mph, WI finally find a way past this opening pair! Aslam pre-meditates a sweep, goes low. Chase held this one back. The ball dips, takes the bottom-edge, sneaks through the legs and timbaaaah. No hundred for Aslam. Pakistan's opening stand ends at 215 ,which is their fourth-best 215/1

108.3 45.9 mph, tossed up and outside off, Shafiq skips out, but the ball dips, creating some distance between the bat and the pitch. Forces him to check his drive and simply chip it back to Bishoo, waist-high catch 352/2
View dismissal Babar Azam c Holder b Bishoo 69 146 105 5 0 65.71
142.5 46.6 mph, and gone! Bishoo has another. Azam doesn't get four in four. Against the run of play. Any wicket in this innings would be, though. Credit to Bishoo, tosses it up nicely outside off, offers plenty of air and width. Azam sees an opportunity to open his arms and hit through the line, but he only succeeds in spanking his cover drive straight to cover. Wanted to go over cover but couldn't get the desired elevation. Good knock though on debut 517/3

View dismissal KC Brathwaite b Yasir Shah 32 99 77 4 0 41.55
23.6 51.4 mph, Wicket No. 97 for Yasir. Hits the top of the off stump. He lobs this one up, draws the batsman forward. Kraigg is opened up and plays inside the line of this delivery. The ball doesn't break much, just enough to beat the outside edge, after drifting into the right-hander. Kraigg is caught playing down the wrong line. WI lose a wicket without adding to their overnight tally 69/2
View dismissal LR Johnson lbw b Yasir Shah 15 55 32 3 0 46.87
11.5 52.8 mph, Yasir strikes in his second over. Wicket No. 96 for Yasir. Umpire Illingworth raises his finger. Pushed through quicker, straighter one. He goes low, sweeps and misses. It was just too full for that shot. Rapped on the front pad in line with middle. That looks plumb. Oh wait, Johnson signals for a review almost immediately, suggesting he had hit that. Was the glove in contact with the ball before the ball pinged the pad? No conclusive evidence. Can't pick up any audio, no clear signs of a deviation. TV umpire Gough can't find enough evidence to overturn Illingworth's call. Johnson has to exit 42/1
View dismissal DM Bravo c Azhar Ali b Mohammad Nawaz 87 398 258 9 1 33.72
103.1 53.6 mph, Bravo's fight ends late in the night! Nawaz celebrates his maiden Test wicket. Good length and spins in sharply from outside off, some extra bounce there too. Bravo has a lazy prod, pressing forward, and inside-edges it to forward short leg, Azhar grabs it in front of his chest. Excellent catch 300/6
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b Sohail Khan 76 188 139 13 0 54.67
67.3 83.3 mph, looks plumb, and Illingworth's finger goes up. Bravo and Samuels have a chat. They don't go for a review. Sohail lets out a roar. There's the breakthrough. Full inducker from Sohail, skids into the right-hander. Starts outside off and shapes in on middle. Exploits Samuels' weak technique. He is neither forward nor back. Caught on the crease and plays down the wrong line. Sohail strikes him on the back pad in front of middle. Samuels fell over as well. It was taking leg stump, and that's the first wicket to a seamer in this Test 182/3

90.2 85.7 mph, Blackwood loves bat on ball. Ends up gloving a catch down leg. Sarfraz moves to his left and gleefully snaps it up. Short on leg or just outside leg, cramps him for room. Blackwood still pulls and deflects it behind 259/4
View dismissal RL Chase c Babar Azam b Wahab Riaz 6 11 7 1 0 85.71
92.2 86.5 mph, Short-ball attack again! Chase has been bounced out now. Has Wahab overstepped? No, he is fine. Fiery lifter on the leg stump from over the wicket. 140ks. Tucks Chase up. Chase din't help his cause either. He took his eyes off it. Fends if off his chest. The ball balloons over Chase's left shoulder and lands in the hands of birthday boy Azam, moving to left from leg slip 266/5
View dismissal SO Dowrich lbw b Yasir Shah 32 87 67 6 0 47.76
112.4 52.0 mph, Yasir appeals for leg-before, umpire Reiffel gives it! It was hitting the stumps but did it pitch in line? Dowrich wants a review. Very full delivery, drifts in, dips and then strikes the front boot. The tracker shows it pitched on leg and was taking middle. WI lose a review. Wicket No. 98 for Yasir. Dowrich misread the length, played around it, and eventually just couldn't get the pad out of the way 325/7
View dismissal JO Holder* b Yasir Shah 20 74 50 2 0 40.00
120.3 51.2 mph, bowled'em! Wicket No. 99 for Yasir This was the tossed-up googly from Yasir, comes back in after starting just outside off. Holder plays down the wrong line, searches for the legbreak, and is done in. Yasir hits the off stump. WI still need 34 runs to avoid the follow-on 346/8
View dismissal D Bishoo b Mohammad Nawaz 17 57 41 2 0 41.46
123.5 52.5 mph, Nawaz takes his second wicket and wraps up West Indies for 357. Fired flatter and quicker, Bishoo slashes a drive and misses. He was caught playing down the wrong line. Nawaz strikes the off stump 357/10

122.1 50.6 mph, Wicket no. 100 for Yasir He is the joint second-fastest to the landmark, in his 17th Test! He soaks in the moment and celebrates with a sajdah. Good-length legbreak, snakes back in, after pitching outside off. Cummins has an ugly swipe across the line. It ripped off the rough and rattled the furniture. This is his seventh five-for 351/9

8.1 83.6 mph, Amir strikes. The around-the-wicket angle brings the first breakthrough. Good length and straightens a bit outside off, but this was a poor shot from Kraigg, one that coaches despise. Loosely drives away from the body and drags it onto the stumps off a thick inside edge 27/1

25.4 78.7 mph, Key, key strike from Amir! Johnson has been given out lbw, he calls for the review. Back of a length incutter, 126.6ks, swerves in on middle, beats the inside edge and pings the front pad above the knee-roll as the left-hander plays down the wrong line. It just has to clip the stumps for Pakistan. Forget clipping, it's hitting middle and leg, according to HawkEye. Ump Illingworth's on-field call is upheld by TV ump Gough. On Saturday, Bravo fell in the last half hour. Tonight, Johnson falls. Impressive knock nevertheless 87/2
View dismissal DM Bravo c & b Yasir Shah 116 406 249 10 1 46.58
94.6 54.4 mph, What a catch Yasir! He flies to his left and grabs it with both hands, Bravo sinks to his knees, slumping over his bat. A picture of despair. The wristspinner has tilted it Pakistan's way. Tossed-up legbreak, ends just outside off from the rough. Bravo goes for the booming drive, does not meet the pitch. The bat twists in his hands as he just chips it to the left of the bowler off the inside half. And Yasir produces a sensational catch, like a goalkeeper diving to his left. He gets a standing ovation from his mates in the dressing room. Yasir applauds the departing batsman too. Pakistan three away from triumph 263/7
View dismissal MN Samuels c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 4 19 11 1 0 36.36
31.1 87.3 mph, What a start for Pakistan! Amir has Samuels nicking behind to the keeper. There's the spread-eagled celebration from the quick. These are Amir's best Test returns since his comeback. Cross-seamer. Good length and angled into Samuels from wide of the crease. Tactful use of the angle again. Samuels is neither forward nor back. Has a nervy prod outside off, in fact it was on a set of stumps outside off, and feathers it low to the keeper. Shin-high catch. Amir made Samuels play because of that angle. The percentage for Pakistan's win is going to rise... 95/3
View dismissal J Blackwood lbw b Mohammad Nawaz 15 50 42 1 0 35.71
42.4 55.1 mph, pushed through quicker, angled in, bounces, and thuds into the front pad above the knee-roll, on the flap. Not given. Back of a length delivery, and Blackwood was on his tippy toes, playing across the front pad. Misbah challenges the on-field decision. I think it was bouncing over. Pitching in line and striking him in front of middle and leg. Oh, the tracker shows it was hitting the top of leg stump. Pakistan's review is successful, and they are six away from victory 116/4
View dismissal RL Chase b Yasir Shah 35 127 83 3 0 42.16
70.6 53.1 mph, Chase's attempted encore fails. Pakistan five away from victory. Misbah pumps his fist. Yasir lands it on the rough outside the leg stump. Chase looks to crash it away against the spin, wide of mid-on, again. This legbreak dips, and he does not get close enough to the pitch of this delivery. Yasir hits the leg stump, his first wicket of the innings in his 28th over 193/5

71.2 88.4 mph, Two wickets in three balls!This Test has turned quickly. Rams into the base of off stump. One hell of a yorker, straightens from around the wicket, 143ks. Dowrich is beaten for pace. Dowrich was camping back, probably expecting a short ball with short leg in position. First-ball duck for Dowrich 194/6

101.5 50.6 mph, Umpire Illingworth's finger goes up. Drama in Dubai. Holder and Bishoo have a chat. Bishoo walks off then suddenly reviews. Illingworth says the 15-second time period has elapsed. It's too late. Good length and turns back in from outside off. Bishoo plays back and hit on the back pad in line with the stumps. Plumb. It was taking middle of middle 276/8
View dismissal ML Cummins run out (Misbah-ul-Haq) 1 12 4 0 0 25.00
104.2 from Yasir Shah, Cummins is short of the crease, despite dishing out a full-length dive. Tossed full on middle, knocked gently to short mid-on. Cummins sets off, he needs to bring Holder back on strike. Holder hesitates, little mix-up. Misbah hunts the ball down, runs in to the stumps, and swipes the bails off. Pakistan one away from victory. Smart work from the captain 277/9
View dismissal ST Gabriel run out (Babar Azam/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 1 24 11 0 0 9.09
108.6 Yasir Shah to Holder, Pakistan win their 400th Test in the last hour. They wrap up WI with two run-outs. Glum faces in the WI change room. Gabriel dives full-stretch but is well short. The square-leg umpire raises his finger and signals the end of this gripping Test. Holder shakes his head. Pitched outside leg, quicker, flatter, the WI captain deflects to short fine leg and sprints off, for this is the last ball of the over. Gabriel can't make it in time. Azam, the debutant, collected the ball and threw to Sarfraz, who did the rest. Turns out to be the last ball of the match. Pakistan win the second ever day-night Test with 12 overs remaining 289/10

Loosely drives away from the body and drags it onto the stumps off a thick inside edge 27/1
25.4 to Johnson, 78.7 mph, Key, key strike from Amir! Johnson has been given out lbw, he calls for the review. Back of a length incutter, 126.6ks, swerves in on middle, beats the inside edge and pings the front pad above the knee-roll as the left-hander plays down the wrong line. It just has to clip the stumps for Pakistan. Forget clipping, it's hitting middle and leg, according to HawkEye. Ump Illingworth's on-field call is upheld by TV ump Gough. On Saturday, Bravo fell in the last half hour. Tonight, Johnson falls. Impressive knock nevertheless 87/2
31.1 to Samuels, 87.3 mph, What a start for Pakistan! Amir has Samuels nicking behind to the keeper. There's the spread-eagled celebration from the quick. These are Amir's best Test returns since his comeback. Cross-seamer. Good length and angled into Samuels from wide of the crease. Tactful use of the angle again. Samuels is neither forward nor back. Has a nervy prod outside off, in fact it was on a set of stumps outside off, and feathers it low to the keeper. Shin-high catch. Amir made Samuels play because of that angle. The percentage for Pakistan's win is going to rise... 95/3

70.6 to Chase, 53.1 mph, Chase's attempted encore fails. Pakistan five away from victory. Misbah pumps his fist. Yasir lands it on the rough outside the leg stump. Chase looks to crash it away against the spin, wide of mid-on, again. This legbreak dips, and he does not get close enough to the pitch of this delivery. Yasir hits the leg stump, his first wicket of the innings in his 28th over 193/5
94.6 to Bravo, 54.4 mph, What a catch Yasir! He flies to his left and grabs it with both hands, Bravo sinks to his knees, slumping over his bat. A picture of despair. The wristspinner has tilted it Pakistan's way. Tossed-up legbreak, ends just outside off from the rough. Bravo goes for the booming drive, does not meet the pitch. The bat twists in his hands as he just chips it to the left of the bowler off the inside half. And Yasir produces a sensational catch, like a goalkeeper diving to his left. He gets a standing ovation from his mates in the dressing room. Yasir applauds the departing batsman too. Pakistan three away from triumph 263/7

42.4 to Blackwood, 55.1 mph, pushed through quicker, angled in, bounces, and thuds into the front pad above the knee-roll, on the flap. Not given. Back of a length delivery, and Blackwood was on his tippy toes, playing across the front pad. Misbah challenges the on-field decision. I think it was bouncing over. Pitching in line and striking him in front of middle and leg. Oh, the tracker shows it was hitting the top of leg stump. Pakistan's review is successful, and they are six away from victory 116/4
101.5 to Bishoo, 50.6 mph, Umpire Illingworth's finger goes up. Drama in Dubai. Holder and Bishoo have a chat. Bishoo walks off then suddenly reviews. Illingworth says the 15-second time period has elapsed. It's too late. Good length and turns back in from outside off. Bishoo plays back and hit on the back pad in line with the stumps. Plumb. It was taking middle of middle 276/8

71.2 to Dowrich, 88.4 mph, Two wickets in three balls!This Test has turned quickly. Rams into the base of off stump. One hell of a yorker, straightens from around the wicket, 143ks. Dowrich is beaten for pace. Dowrich was camping back, probably expecting a short ball with short leg in position. First-ball duck for Dowrich 194/6
