Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo struck two late blows to help the West Indies hit back as Pakistan ended the second day of the second cricket Test at 172/3 at the Kensington Oval. Opener Azhar Ali (81 not out) and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq (7 not out) were at the crease when the umpires dislodged the bails for the day.

Pakistan, on Monday, got off to a great start with Azhar and Ahmed Shehzad putting on 155 for the opening wicket, before Bishoo and pacer Shannon Gabriel struck in the final session of play to reduce the visitors to 172/3 in response to the home side's first innings score of 312.

A double strike in the final session from Shannon Gabriel brought West Indies back into the first Test of the Brighto Paints presents the Q Mobile Cup Series against Pakistan on Sunday.  The rugged fast bowler ended the third day with 2-37 from 16 overs, as the Pakistanis reached 201 for four, replying to the Windies’ first innings total of 286, when bad light stopped play with 10.4 overs remaining.

Until Gabriel’s intervention, Pakistan looked in control, as Babar Azam with 72 and Younus Khan with 58 resolutely added 131 for third wicket, after the visitors had stumbled to 54 for two.

Roston Chase helped West Indies recover from a shaky start against Pakistan in the historic first Test in Kingston, Jamaica. The shaven-skull Chase made 63 and Shane Dowrich supported with 56 that allowed the Windies to reach 244 for seven when bad light stopped play early on the opening day. Mohammad Amir was the star of the show for Pakistan, taking 3 wickets for just 28 runs.

Former schoolmates Chase and Dowrich added 118 for the sixth wicket to rescue the home team from a precarious 71 for five, after they were sent into bat on a lively Sabina Park pitch under cloudy skies. Chase and Dowrich were however, dismissed from successive deliveries in leg-spinner Yasir Shah’s 19th over to leave West Indies 189 for seven.

Jerome Taylor has formally indicated to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) that he has come out of retirement and is available for selection for Test Cricket. This decision means he is now available for selection in all three formats of the game. Last July, the 32-year-old fast bowler had announced his retirement from the longest version of the game.

“I believe I still have a lot of cricket left in me and I know I can still offer a lot to West Indies cricket in the Test arena,” said Taylor. “If selected, I will look to put my best foot forward and give my all for the team. We have some young players in the group at the moment and I believe with my experience, I can add to the team going forward.”
