Manzoor century bolsters Pakistan A
Pakistan A 238 for 7 (Manzoor 130, Permaul 3-56) v West Indies A
Khurram Manzoor hit a century as Pakistan A reached 238 for 7 on the first day of the second unofficial Test against West Indies A at the Arnos Vale Ground in St Vincent. After the visitors chose to bat, the Pakistan openers, Manzoor and Umair Khan, started solidly adding 68 for the first wicket. David Bernard dismissed Umair for 41, but Manzoor, in the company of No. 3 Shan Masood continued to play fluently as the duo put on 111 runs. Manzoor, who made a hundred in the first Test, finally fell to the offspin of Veerasammy Permaul for 104 which included 16 boundaries. Pakistan then lost momentum, losing five wickets for just 59 as they crumbled from 179 for 2 to 238 for 7. Permaul was the most successful West Indies bowler with figures of 3 for 56. The first Test at the same venue ended in a draw after it was badly affected by rain.
