    Misbah finishes things in style by hitting back-to-back sixes against Bishoo!

  • 11:28 PM IST

    Younis Khan is out! Devendra Bishoo trapped him in pads. Bishoo bowled it full somewhere on middle and leg stump. But Younis missed the ball and the ball hit him directly on the pads. Umpire raised his finger but Younis went for a review. Reply showed that the ball would have hit the leg stump!

    Okay, so lunch has been taken here finally! Pakistan have taken the decision of taking the lunch and at the end of the first session the visitors have scored 13 runs at the loss of 2 wickets. They still require 19 runs with 8 wickets in hand!

  • 10:31 PM IST

    Alzarri Joseph might bowl the last over before lunch if Pakistan decide against the extra 15 minutes. I think they might take lunch here just to freshen up and plan their strategy for this chase. They can’t afford to lose any wicket here because the momentum is with West Indies for the moment. But a 30 minutes lunch break will put a full-stop to that momentum and that will work against the hosts!

  • 10:29 PM IST

    Now the question is whether Pakistan will take the extra 15 minutes to extend the 1st session or they will have lunch!

  • 10:25 PM IST

    Just getting the feeling that Younis will hit the winning runs here. This batting pair – Babar and Younis had taken their side out of a tight spot in the first innings and they might do it here as well. There is no pressure on Pakistan here because the target is very small. Add more 100 runs in it and Pakistan would have been reeling in pressure right now!

  • 10:22 PM IST

    Bowled’em! Alzarri Joseph has cleaned up Azhar Ali. He was in two minds if to leave the delivery or not as it was well outside off. But gets caught in between. The ball takes the inside edge and clatters on the stumps!

  • 10:17 PM IST

    OUT! Shane Dowrich has taken a beauty of a catch to dismiss Ahmed Shehzad. It was pitched outside off on good length and going away from Shehzad. He decides to chase it and manages a thick edge and Dowrich takes a neat catch going to his right!

  • 10:14 PM IST

    This should be an easy task for Pakistan to finish the game before the scheduled break. If they score enough runs by the time of lunch, the session will get extended and Pakistan batsmen look in a hurry to have the lunch on a winning note!

  • 9:54 PM IST

    Pakistan need 32 to win!

  • 9:54 PM IST

    6th wicket for Yasir. Shannon Gabriel goes for slog-sweep shot..needless I’d say. Miscues it and Mohammad Abbas takes an easy catch at mid-off

  • 9:49 PM IST

    Yasir Shah has taken a 5-for here. Alzarri Joseph has been trapped in pads. Yasir tossed it up and the ball drifted after pitching. The batsman plays it across the the line

  • 9:49 PM IST

    Jason Holder is gone. Wahab Riaz has taken the all important wicket. Wahab persisted bowling outside off asking Holder to chase it. And the batsman does not resist the temptation and chases a wide delivery and edged it to Sarfraz. Poor batting from Holder at a crucial stage of the game

  • 9:41 PM IST

    Roston Chase and Jason Holder are the last batting pair for West Indies and they have all the responsibility taking West Indies to a safe total. Their primary motive would be to see out the lunch without losing any wicket (s). Meanwhile, Yasir Shah has not been that probing or lethal as he was yesterday. So the question is till when will Misbah continue with him?

  • 9:10 PM IST

    Mohammad Abbas has got the wicket of Shane Dowrich here just 2 deliveries later. He good length delivery which nipped back in and Dowrich missed it completely. The ball would have gone to hit middle and leg!

  • 9:08 PM IST

  • 9:07 PM IST

    Devendra Bishoo’s cameo comes to an end. Mohammad Abbas bowls a back of length delivery which was bowled in and around the line on off stump. No movement as such but seeing the width, Bishoo slashes it hard but manages a healthy edge and Younis Khan takes a sharp catch at second slip!

  • 8:55 PM IST

    Runs are coming easy right now for West Indies. Yasir has been on the shorter side so far. He has bowled wide asking to be hit and rightly so Chase and Bishoo have been doing that!

  • 8:48 PM IST

    Roston Chase will have to play a resilient inning here. He has proved it time in and out that he is the player West Indies can back in in times of peril.

  • 8:47 PM IST

    Bishoo miscued one over long off dispatching the ball to the boundary rope. 2 balls later he cut it like a perfect batsman sending the ball beyond the boundary rope and now West Indies have went past the Pakistan total/

  • 8:34 PM IST

    Excellent bowling from Aamer – This is his 7th wicket of the game

  • 8:34 PM IST

    Vishaul Singh has walked back. Mohammad Aamer has got his. Scrambled seam pitching well outside off stump on. It was a back of length delivery which nipped back in and Vishaul is left nowhere as he leaves the ball thinking it’ll go to the keeper. But instead, his off stump goes for a cartwheel!

  • 8:23 PM IST

    This is going to be a stern test of temperament for Bishoo and Vishaul.

  • 8:23 PM IST

    Mohammad Aamer has shared the ball with Yasir from the other end. He has swung the ball away from both the left-handed batsmen but no success as off yet. But Pakistan won’t actually mind this. At least for the first few overs – 30 to 40 minutes. Misbah would be well aware of the fact that the cracks will open up as the game progresses and also because it’s the final day of the game.

  • 8:17 PM IST

    Otherwise, the rest of the team is quite the same of what was expected!

  • 8:17 PM IST

    Umar Akmal – Kamran’s younger brother had been recalled though.

  • 8:14 PM IST

    Coming back to Kamran Akmal getting dropped from the Champions League 2017 squad. It is actually quite strange of why he is not selected. He played the T20I and ODI here in West Indies and looked in fine form.

  • 8:05 PM IST

    This is going to be a very important session for both teams. If West Indies lose 1-2 wickets in the first hour – the defeat is likely to come well before the second session.

  • 8:04 PM IST

    There seems to be a lot of spin on offer and Yasir has been pitching the ball a lot fuller and outside off hoping to nip the ball in through the rough patches!

  • 8:03 PM IST

    But West Indies have started off the Day 5 with Bishoo and Vishaul at the crease! And as expected, Yasir Shah has opened the bowling on this final day!

Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of Day Five 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. Pakistan courtesy their skipper Misbah-ul-Haq’s 99 not out ensured Pakistan to a score of 407. The lead of 121 runs placed the visitors in a strong position. Misbah in process also completed 5,000 Test runs and became the seventh Pakistani cricketer to do so. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Pakistan vs West Indies 2017, 1st Test at Jamaica

Pakistan started the Day Four of the rain-effected Test at 201 for 4. While Misbah in his final Test series crafted a composed 99 not out, he was well supported by a brisk innings from wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed, who scored 54 from just 70 balls. Pacers Shanon Gabriel and Alzarri Joseph claimed 3 wickets apiece. Skipper Jason Holder, Roston Chase and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo claimed a wicket each.

While Bishoo was not very successful with his leg-spin, his counterpart Yasir Shah wreaked havoc in the West Indian camp as they were left tottering at 93 for 4 at stumps on Day Four. Yasir dismissed all four West Indian batsmen. West Indies still trail by 28 runs with six wickets in hand. Pakistan will look to wrap up the West Indies innings soon and script a win on the final day and for the hosts the best result is draw. The lower order has often bailed them out and the expectation will be the same here. At crease are Bishoo and debutant Vishaul Singh.

Playing XI:

West Indies: Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Vishaul Singh, Shane Dowrich (wk), Roston Chase, Jason Holder (c), Devendra Bishoo, Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel

Pakistan: Ahmed Shehzad, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq (c), Asad Shafiq, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Mohammad Amir, Yasir Shah, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Abbas
