Yasir hands Pakistan the advantage

Kieran Powell was the one West Indies batsman to fall before stumps, caught at the wicket off Mohammad Abbas as his side closed on 40-1 to trail by 41.

Brathwaite helped steady the home side before he was caught at first slip by Younis off a delivery from Yasir for 43 in the 34th.

Earlier in both first innings, in reply to Pakistan's score of 312 runs, West Indies was all out for 393 runs.

Pakistan, which leads the three-match series 1-0, is bidding for its first ever test series win in the Caribbean.

Skipper Jason Holder also failed to provide any resistance, falling to Yasir in the next over before the leggie claimed two more scalps as the hosts lost six wickets for 26 runs.

Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah put the skids under West Indies in the closing stages of day four of the second Test at Bridgetown. However within sight of a maiden Test hundred, he drove Shah to cover where Azhar Ali held the catch that triggered the late slide.

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


If these two take the lead above 200, West Indies will come up as the mental edge on the ultimate day.

The priority for Pakistan would be getting the last wicket of West Indies before the lead reaches the 200-run mark.

In T20Is, he has scored 788 runs in 34 innings.

The afternoon session was a cagey affair as Yasir resumed the session by bowling around the wicket again to exploit the rough, while Roston Chase and Hope kept him at bay.

Hope and Vishaul Singh continued to keep the scoreboard ticking as the put together an 80-run partnership, during which Hope sailed past his fifty.

Hope and Brathwaite batted more positively after coming together, but just as it looked like West Indies might creep into the ascendancy once more, Brathwaite was undone by a combination of vicious spin from Yasir and staggering reflexes from Younis.
