Commentary (Pakistan innings)

So that's it from us for this game. We have witnessed an enticing game of cricket which has now made the 3-match Test series even-stevens. The third and final Test will take place at Roseau and it promises to be a thrilling contest. Pakistan will be looking to get their first series win in the Caribbean while the hosts will want to deny them and emerge on top. Join us on May 10 at 1000 local (1400 GMT) to catch all the action. Until then, goodbye and cheers!

West Indies skipper, Jason Holder says that it was a collective team effort. Reckons that they batted very well in the first innings and their bowlers backed the score they posted. Cites that the wicket deteriorates a lot here on Day 5. Also says that they put down a couple of chances but apart from that everything was good. Appreciates Shai Hope for batting really well but feels that he was unlucky to miss out on his hundred. Mentions that they had to improve on a few areas and the guys did that really well. Ends by saying that it was really important for the guys to show consistency and they obliged.

Man of the Match, Shannon Gabriel says that this win means a lot to him. Credits his team for putting a great performance and also praises Chase for the way he batted in the first innings. Mentions that they knew that if they got a good lead on this fifth day pitch, they were always in with a chance. Adds that he was trying too hard and trying to bowl too fast, so he took a decision to stay calm in the second innings. Feels that it is one of his biggest achievements. Mentions that that the ball did reverse a bit but he still had to put the ball in the right areas. Ends by saying that the track was a bit up and down and he tried to bowl in the right areas.

Pakistan skipper, Misbah-ul-Haq says that it is really difficult to bat on a day 5 wicket and they knew that. Feels that they lost the plot on the fourth day when they allowed the hosts to score runs at a brisk pace. Appreciates the West Indian bowlers for bowling probing lengths and also bowling their hearts out. Reckons that they always tried to play positive cricket throughout the match. Adds that they lost the plot in the first 20 overs of the final day where they were totally dismal with the bat. Praises Yasir Shah for bowling extraordinarily well for them. Ends by saying that this series is up for grabs and expects it to be a good final Test match.

The pitch started to deteriorate but the Windies were resolute in reply. Hope made a terrific 90 to put the hosts in a commanding position. Brathwaite, Chase and Singh also made handy contributions to set a target of 188 for the tourists. Yasir Shah weaved his magic to take 7/94 and that kept Pakistan in with a chance. However, the home side came back to produce an inspirational bowling performance and Pakistan crumbled under pressure to get bowled out for their second lowest total against West Indies in Tests.

Earlier, West Indies put up a decent score on the board thanks to a century and a half century from Chase and Holder respectively. Amir and Abbas were the pick of the bowlers for the tourists then. Pakistan came out to bat and responded well. They took a lead of 81 runs, courtesy of Ali, Misbah and Shehzad. Azhar Ali scored a brilliant century but the Pakistan skipper missed out on the milestone by a mere run. Holder and Gabriel were brilliant with the ball for the hosts.

That's it! An emphatic victory for West Indies and they thoroughly deserve it. They have bundled out Pakistan for their tenth lowest total in Test cricket and have outplayed them comprehensively. Shannon Gabriel was absolutely outstanding and ran through the visitors. He ended with remarkable figures of 11-4-11-5 in the final innings taking his tally to 9 wickets for the game. Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph provided him good support and took three and two wickets respectively. Nothing much to mention about the visitors' batting apart from the 42-run stand between Sarfraz Ahmed and Shadab Khan.

...DAY 5, SESSION 2...

With two sessions and a minimum of 67 overs still to be bowled, Pakistan can still make a comeback as they just need 153 runs more to win. Losing half of their side is a big concern for them but Ahmed Shehzad and Sarfraz Ahmed are more than capable of putting up a good show with the bat. We are in for a terrific afternoon session where one team will want to battle it out till the end and the other will look to run through the former's defenses. Join us in a while for the post-lunch session which can turn out to be the deciding one.

West Indies have catapulted their way back to the top of the game. They are now dictating the terms, thanks to a brilliant first session. Ahmed Shehzad has been lucky to survive till now and he has again managed to get a reprieve in this innings. None of the other top and middle order batsmen made their stay in the middle count. They were rather too defensive and that backfired on them. Shannon Gabriel has just been exceptional with the ball which has landed the hosts in such a position. He managed to take three crucial wickets and that will surely be haunting the visitors.

19.6 S Gabriel to Shehzad, Fuller length ball on off, Shehzad gets squared up but he manages to keep it out to covers. THAT'S LUNCH ON DAY 5! 35/5

Shafiq pushes at it with hard hands and gets a thick outside edge that travels at a fast pace towards Kieran Powell at first slip. He is a bit tentative, juggles it but manages to hold onto it. Pakistan are falling down like a pack of cards now. Half of their side is back to the hut and West Indies are five wickets away from a famous victory. 30/5

15.3 S Gabriel to Shafiq, In the channel outside off, left alone. 30/4

Asad Shafiq is the next man in.

15.2 S Gabriel to Misbah, OUT! Pakistan are in dire straits now! On a good length outside off, shaping in. Misbah lunges forward to counter it but seems to have missed it. Is hit on the front pad and the West Indies players go up in a strong appeal for an LBW. The umpire shakes his head this time to say no. Another massive moment in the game and Holder opts for the review. The replays roll in. The third umpire checks for the inside edge. Well, there seems to be a deflection and yes, there is an inside edge on it. The replays also show the edge went onto hit the pads and lobbed towards gully where Shai Hope pouched it safely. So that's it, the review works wonders for the home side and Misbah has to walk back. 30/4

Jason Holder opts to take a review against Misbah-ul-Haq! It is regarding an LBW decision.

15.1 S Gabriel to Shehzad, On a length and angling in, Shehzad looks to defend it but gets an inside edge to square leg. Single taken. 30/3

14.6 J Holder to Misbah, Digs it in short, angling down. Misbah looks to pull it but is foxed by the slowness of the delivery. That was bowled cross seam by Jason Holder. 29/3

12.5 J Holder to Khan, OUT! This is a big moment in the game! Good length delivery well outside off, seaming in. The ball comes back in sharply after hitting the crack and stays very low. Younis Khan hops back and tries to keep it out but gets completely foxed by the lack of bounce and also the sharp inward movement on it. Is pinged on the front pad and up go the hosts in a confident appeal. The umpire obliges and rules it out. Younis Khan consults Shehzad and takes the review. The Hawk Eye shows three reds and Khan is a dead duck. He fails once again and the hosts are on top. The visitors lose a review and the hosts need 7 more wickets to win the match. 27/3

Younis Khan has been given out LBW but he opts for the review. Seems very close to the naked eye.
