108.3 to Asad Shafiq, 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
142.5 to Babar Azam, 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
Roston Chase33210913.301369100
67.5 to Sami Aslam, 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

Mohammad Amir2265402.451087002
Sohail Khan1625613.50739000
67.3 to MN Samuels, 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
Yasir Shah431512152.8120618100
11.5 to LR Johnson, 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
23.6 to KC Brathwaite, 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
112.4 to SO Dowrich, 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
120.3 to JO Holder, 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
122.1 to ML Cummins, 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
Wahab Riaz23.336522.761178018
90.2 to J Blackwood, 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
92.2 to RL Chase, 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
Mohammad Nawaz16.553822.25825001
103.1 to DM Bravo, 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
123.5 to D Bishoo, 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

Shannon Gabriel712313.28291001
2.6 to Azhar Ali, this is pretty adjacent! Azhar consults with Aslam, declines the review now. Azhar walks off for 2 after a triple in the first innings. Full and angled in, nibbles in slightly, Azhar loses his shape and falls over on the drive. Strikes the front pad in line with middle and leg. It was crashing into leg stump. According to HawkEye, it was clipping leg. 13/1
Miguel Cummins702904.14253001
Devendra Bishoo13.514983.54565000
5.4 to Asad Shafiq, full straighter one, Shafiq shuffles across, goes low, and does not connect with a sweep. Weathers the lbw appeal. That's close. Bishoo and Holder review No edge. No glove involved. Hits the front pad below the knee-roll in line with middle and leg. The tracker shows it would carry on to take leg. Shafiq has to go. Umpire Reiffel's on-field call is overturned. 20/2
17.2 to Babar Azam, Azam has chopped on! The bail is tipped off. Bishoo held this back and got it to drift into the right-hander, who was moving back and eyeing a leg-side flick. Azam plays early and drags an inside-edge back onto the stumps. Ricocheted off the pad. 77/3
23.1 to Sami Aslam, slip claims the catch, Aslam falls six short of what could have been his second fifty of the match. The soft signal is out. Yes, It's a clean grab. Tossed-up legbreak, shapes in from outside off, kicks at Aslam who was going back for another late-cut. He can only edge it low. Blackwood, who was leaning back, bends low to snaffle the sharp chance. Plucked it inches from the ground. 93/4
27.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Misbah aims a big slog-sweep and chops it onto the bottom of the off stump. Again, Bishoo hung it in the air and held this full straight ball back, leaving Misbah to manufacture the pace. He bent low, attempted the shot early, the ball did not come on. Played on. 112/5
27.6 to Mohammad Nawaz, Nawaz bags a duck on Test debut. Bishoo has a five-for. He lands it on the rough outside off, finds vicious turn and bounce. Nawaz offers no shot. Bishoo hits the top of off. 112/6
29.5 to Wahab Riaz, Make that six wickets for Bishoo. Flighted full on off, Wahab goes low for a slog sweep. He can only top-edge it. Picks out the lone fielder on the leg-side boundary. Kraigg settles under the skier at deep midwicket. 118/7
31.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, and WI begin the post-dinner session with the wicket of Sarfraz. Bishoo claims his seventh. Sarfraz ran at Bishoo immediately after the break. Bishoo sends down a turning legbreak, Sarfraz was nowhere close to the pitch as he sought to drive. Beats the outside edge. Dowrich grabs the ball and swipes the ball off to catch him short. 121/9
31.5 to Mohammad Amir, Bishoo finishes with career-best returns of 8 for 49. He is applauded by his team-mates. Bishoo targets the rough outside off. Good-length legbreak spins in prodigiously, bursts through the defences of Amir, and strikes middle. 123/10
Jason Holder401213.00130000
30.6 to Yasir Shah, West Indies close the post-tea session with the wicket of Yasir! Lifter outside off, Yasir can't get on top of the bounce. He fends at it meekly and pops it in the air. Holder moves forward and to his right to snap up the return catch. His first wicket of the Test. 121/8

Mohammad Amir2356332.731057010
8.1 to KC Brathwaite, 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 to LR Johnson, 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 MN Samuels, 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
Sohail Khan1012202.20431000
Yasir Shah41611322.751779100
70.6 to RL Chase, 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 DM Bravo, 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
Mohammad Nawaz1843221.77852000
42.4 to J Blackwood, 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 D Bishoo, 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
Wahab Riaz1714712.76785004
71.2 to SO Dowrich, 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
