ROSEAU (May 12, 2017): Pakistani squad all out for 376 runs against West Indies in their first inning of the third Test at Windsor Park in Roseau on Thursday night.
The Green Shirts mounted 376 runs by the second day of the match. Opener Azhar Ali was the top scorer of the Pakistani innings with 127 runs. He increased 127 runs in the total with eight 4s and two 6s on 334 balls. It was the second consecutive century by Azhar Ali in the series against West India and overall 14th of his career.
Pakistan eased into their comfort zone in the evening session of a truncated day’s play in Roseau. They played as they like to – slow, solid, unremarkable – scoring at a run rate around 2.50 throughout the day. Azhar Ali and Babar Azam looked settled for most parts, much more so than one would have expected after their team was thrust in to bat under gloomy skies.
Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq scored 59 runs on 148 balls. Whereas Babar Azam went to pavilion on 55 and Sarfraz Ahmed on 51.
On the other hand, West Indies’ right-arm offbreak bowler Roston Lamar Chase proved the most dangerous bowler against Pakistan as he grabbed four wickets in the first innings. Jason Holder took three wickets and Devendra Bishoo clinched two wickets in the innings.
Earlier, Pakistan resume its first innings at overnight score of 169 for two on Thursday on the second day of third and last cricket test against West Indies in Dominica.
