BRIDGETOWN (May 03, 2017): Pakistan dominated the third day of the second test against West Indies, leaving the host on 40-1 in their second innings on Tuesday night. At the end of third day, West Indian opener Kraigg Brathwaite was playing on 8 and Shimron Hetmyer was on 22. Whereas Keiran Powell went to pavilion on 06.
Earlier, Pakistan was out for 393 but not before adding 64 valuable runs after tea for a first-innings lead of 81. West Indies conceded 44 extras at Kensington Oval.
Azhar Ali top-scored for Pakistan with 105 for his 13th test century. He scored 105 runs at 278 balls. Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq went for 99, caught in the slips by Shai Hope off Jason Holder. Misbah will be getting tired of seeing 99 next to his name on the scoreboard, after also falling a run short of his century in the test opener when he ran out of partners.
Azhar was the first to go after lunch, caught behind off Bishoo in a 278-ball 105. Misbah was next and Gabriel’s pace then forced Sarfraz Ahmed (9) into offering a slip catch, well taken by Powell. Asad Shafiq (15 off 66 balls) went off the last ball before tea, lbw to Holder. Shadab Khan (16) and Yasir Shah (24) moved the total along.
Shannon Gabriel took 4-81, Devendra Bishoo 3-116 and Holder an 3-42 off 29 overs.
