Full Cricket Scorecard, Pakistan vs West Indies, 2nd Test at Barbados
After batting well for most of the day, West Indies faltered to lose 6 wickets for just 29 runs. The match is still wide open but Pakistan are in the driving seat. Shai Hope was terrific and he was the only reason the home side leads by 183 runs. They will hope that their last-wicket pair adds as much as possible on Thursday in the morning session. Going past the 200-run mark will be a psychological booster and the West Indies will be aiming for that.
Pakistan made a terrific comeback in the final session on Day Four. West Indies were coasting along at one moment but the second new ball was utilised well by the visitors. After the final drinks break, it was Yasir Shah who weaved his magic like he did in the previous game. He got the all important breakthrough of Shai Hope to deny him his maiden Test century. Abbas was probing from the other end and that helped their ace spinner. He ran through the lower order and triggered a mini collapse.
