WI v Pak, 2nd Test, Bridgetown May 4, 2017

WI pacers achieve rare day-five success

No team in the last 10 years had managed to pick up all second-innings wickets on the fifth day of a Test through pace alone

1 Only once have Pakistan made a lower score in Tests against West Indies than the 81 in the second innings of the Bridgetown Test. They were dismissed for 77 in Lahore in 1986-87. Pakistan's 81 is their tenth lowest Test score.

10 Wickets by West Indies pacers in Pakistan's second innings - the first time in almost six years that quicks have taken all ten wickets in a Test innings at home. The previous instance had come against Pakistan as well, in the fourth innings in Providence in 2011.

2015 The last time West Indies won a Test after conceding a first-innings lead: also in Bridgetown, against England. On that occasion, West Indies conceded a lead of 68 in the first innings, but came back strongly to bowl England out for 123 in the second innings. Overall this the 20th such instance for West Indies.

0 Number of instances in the last 10 years, before Thursday, of a team's ten wickets falling to pace on the fifth day. Gabriel, Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder shared the wickets between them.

1 Number of five-wicket hauls for West Indies that have cost less than Gabriel's 5 for 11. Jermaine Lawson took 6 for 3 against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2002-03. Jerome Taylor returned figures of 5 for 11 against England in Kingston in 2008-09. Only Dale Steyn has a more economical five-for, when he took 6 for 8 against Pakistan in Johannesburg in 2012-13.

1 Number of times a Pakistan bowler returned better innings figures than Yasir Shah's 7 for 94 against West Indies. Imran Khan took 7 for 80 in Georgetown in 1988. Yasir's figures are the third best by a Pakistan bowler in defeat.

34.4 Number of overs Pakistan's second innings lasted. Only once have they been bowled out in fewer overs by West Indies. West Indies took just 31.5 overs to dismiss Pakistan in their second innings of the Dubai Test last year, though they ended up losing the match.

2 Number of instances of a batsman getting out for 99 and 0 in a Test, before Misbah-ul-Haq in this game. The last batsman to do so was also from Pakistan: Mushtaq Mohammad, against England in Karachi in 1972-73. India's Pankaj Roy was the other; he got these scores in the Delhi Test against Australia in 1959-60.

    Sonw clarification/qualification needed on the economical 5-for. Are you takking only about quick bowlers? Michael clarke took 6-9 once, and thats just one off the top of ny head

    The stats say it all: Pakistan at the receiving end of all the wrong kinds of records. With a couple of exceptions, all the players need to take a very hard look at themselves and install some pride and passion which were completely lacking in this match.

    @HELLDIVER some of the stats were there in the 1st test and were celebrated like the record of Younis. But much more experienced Pak losing to this weak and totally inexperienced Windies team is bound to create more stat records than the other way around.

    Problem with Pakistani batsmen are that they are habituated of playing in slow and low UAE pitches since last eight years. Hence when there is seam-movement, bouncy, uneven bouncy conditions they used to succumb.

    You are spot on iam67. Pathetic. Spineless. Gutless. Thoughtless. Clueless. Misbah has once again demoralised the team with his sick mentality. He is overage for anything that rattles. That's why he failed in Australia. Thank God he is leaving.

    Absolutely pathetic performance by Pakistan team. Still haven't learned to survive the last day's pressure! The blame goes to Coaches and Captain. You can not have the same approach throughout your life - Defensive, Defensive and Defensive.... The first innings scores of Azhar Ali and Ahmed Shahzad was face saving approach and trying to cement their places in the team - extremely selfish innings. And on top of it our pathetic commentators Rameez and Waqar were praising both - shows the filth of regionalism in their minds. The entire world is playing aggressive cricket which is the modern way of playing and our team is in the stone age of cricket. Alarming situation but such is entire country - its leaders and all the institutions are least bothered about the results. What matters is making money and that's all.

    Change: "Only two other West Indies fast bowlers have better figures in a Test innings than Shannon Gabriel's 5 for 11 in Bridgetown." to "Only two other West Indies fast bowlers have better figures in a Test innings 'against Pakistan' than Shannon Gabriel's 5 for 11 in Bridgetown.

    Stat Analysis is always interesting to read... My question is, why wasn't this available after the 1st Test? Will this only show up after Pakistan loses?
