West Indies slump late on day four in second test against Pakistan

Doyle BarkerMay 04, 2017

However, just as Hope was approaching his maiden Test hundred, disaster struck as he fell to Yasir for a career-best 90, which came off 209 balls and included eight boundaries and a six.

The third and concluding test at Roseau starts on May 10.

Deprived of the landmark when stranded on 99 not out in the first innings of the first Test in Jamaica, the Pakistan captain appeared destined to accomplish the feat on this occasion, only to be dismissed in a freaky manner, triggering a mini collapse in which three wickets fell for 13 runs just before tea.

Pakistan lead the three-match series 1-0.

Pakistan scored 393 in reply to West Indies' first-innings 312.

The reproduction of the story/photograph in any form will be liable for legal action. Hence these two batsmen will definitely be keeping an eye on how the ball does with Mohammad Aamer, Mohammad Abbas and even Yasir on Day Five.

Pakistan have assumed control in their Test match against the West Indies with captain Misbah-ul-Haq again dominating with the bat before claiming an unwanted record. But all of a sudden, Hope sought to cover drive a flighted Yasir delivery through the air, perfectly picking out Azhar Ali at cover.

Hope and Roston Chase kept the runs flowing with a 58-run stand before Chase was caught and bowled by Yasir for 23.

As umpires took the bails off in the end of fourth day's play, Devendra Bishoo and Shannon Gabriel were at the crease with 16 and 0 runs respectively.

With another five-wicket haul in the same Test series, leg-spinner Yasir Shah brought Pakistan very much on driving seat of second Test on Wednesday as West Indies in its second innings lost 9 wickets for 264 runs at stumps despite Shai Hope's 90 runs.

If Pakistan need to chase a target of over 200, the run-chase would become interesting, especially if Pakistan score slowly - they only managed 54 runs in the entire morning session on Tuesday - or if early wickets tumble.
