Second Test: Pakistan bowl West Indies out for 150

Sheheen Shah Afridi claimed five-wicket haul as Pakistan bowled West Indies out for 150 in the first innings.

Shaheen removed both openers swiftly and Faheem Ashraf added
another to have the home side at 39 for three in reply at stumps.

Edged by one wicket in a thrilling finale to the first Test
on the same ground a week earlier, Pakistan’s quest for a series-levelling
victory has been frustrated by showers and inefficient covering of the playing
square.

All of the second day was lost to showers and a sodden
outfield while play did not properly get underway on day three until early
afternoon as a damp area at the southern end of the pitch, in line with the
bowlers’ run-ups, was a source of concern for the West Indies.

When Faheem bowled Roston Chase it brought in nightwatchman
Alzarri Joseph who hung on with Nkrumah Bonner to carry the fight for the West
Indies into the fourth day.

West Indies lead the series after winning the first Test by
one wicket at the same venue a week earlier.

Kraigg Brathwaite (captain), Kieran Powell, Nkrumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers, Roston
