Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of Day Four of the first Test between Pakistan and West Indies at Sabina Park, Jamaica. I am Rohan Sawant and I will bring you the live updates of this match. Apart from the good cricket that we have witnessed in this Test, the game has been marred due to weather. Nevertheless, Sunday was all about Younis Khan becoming the first Pakistani entrant to the elite 10,000-run club. Yes, the awaited moment finally arrived two balls after the tea interval when Younis swept to the fine-leg boundary to reach the milestone.

Day Three began with West Indies still batting. Mohammad Aamer’s six-for ensured West Indies were bundled over 286. West Indies skipper Jason Holder remained unbeaten on 57. He later claimed the wicket of comeback man Ahmed Shehzad. Pakistan were reduced to 54 for 2 at one stage and they took stumps on Day Three at 201 for 4. Shannon Gabriel was the most impressive West Indian bowler with figures of 16-5-37-2.
Pakistan have their skipper Misbah-ul-Haq at the crease alongside Asad Shafiq. Misbah, who is playing his last series as an international cricketer, is now 44 runs short of another milestone i.e. 5,000 Test runs. Misbah will be only the seventh Pakistani cricketer to reach the landmark. With forecast of rains on Monday, a draw looms over the Test. Pakistan will however want to make a game out of it and look to pile up quick runs.
