Pakistan lost 8 wickets today for 207 runs. Azhar Ali top-scored for the visitors with 127, while Misbah, Babar Azam and Sarfraz scored fifties. Roston Chase picked up 4 wickets, while Jason Holder finished with 3 wickets. Here’s our Day 2 report: WI trail by 362 runs at stumps on Day 2, 3rd Test after bowling PAK out for 376

    WI look to survive: West Indies are just looking to bat the rest of the overs out. There seems to be a hint of rain as well. West Indies will look to go to Day Three with all their 10 wickets intact. Pakistan on the other hand will be eager to knock a couple of West Indies batsmen over. Mohammad Abbas and Mohammad Aamer have kept it tight in the opening spell.

  • 2:06 AM IST

    ALL OUT! Sarfraz was dismissed after making a well composed 51. Hasan Ali on debut to smack a couple of boundaries, but Bishoo picked up the final 2 wickets of the innings to bowl West Indies out for 376. Pakistan did recover a bit through Sarrfraz after Jason Holder picked up 2 quick wickets after tea. West Indies overall, will be happy with their bowling performance.

  • 1:47 AM IST

    Fifty for Sarfraz: Sarfraz Ahmed brings up his fifty off just 67 deliveries to take Pakistan closer to the 400-run mark. This partnership between Abbas and Sarfraz is beginning to frustrate West Indies. Abbas is not making any effort to get runs and is just happy to block at the moment. He has been doing that quite well. West Indies would have hoped to bowl Pakistan out especially after Jason Holder picked two wickets in as many deliveries almost immediately after tea.

    PAK fight on: Just when it looked like it would be a matter of time before Pakistan are bowled out, Sarfraz and Mohammad Abbas are fighting it out. Sarfraz is doing the bulk of the scoring, while Abbas is just happy to block and support Sarfraz. This partnership will surely frustrate West Indies, who would have hopes to have a bat themselves at this stage.

  • 12:52 AM IST

    Double strike: West Indies have managed to get rid of Mohammad Aamer for just 7. Holder coming around the wicket cramps Aamer for room and the ball crashes into this leg stump. Yasir Shah edges one to first slip for a duck off the very next delivery and suddenly, Holder is on a hat-trick. But new batsman Mohammad Abbas survives the hat-trick ball. West Indies now just a couple of wickets away from bowling Pakistan out.

  • 12:18 AM IST

    TEA: Misbah-ul-Haq was dismissed off the final ball before tea for 59. He looked to reverse sweep one from Chase but could only manage an outside edge and Dowrich this time made no mistake. Pakistan take tea at 311 for 6. Sarfraz Ahmed is the only recognised batsman left and he is unbeaten on 8 off 16. join us for the third session of the day in about 15 minutes. Here’s our tea report: Chase’s triple strike restricts Pakistan to 311-6 at tea on Day 2, 3rd Test against West Indies

  • 11:41 PM IST

    Shafiq perishes: In a bid to get some quick runs, Asad Shafiq looks to go big, but he finds the man at deep mid-wicket. Roston Chase has his third wicket as he removes Shafiq for just 17. Wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed walks in at No. 7 for Pakistan. West Indies would love to get another wicket before tea.

  • 11:17 PM IST

    PAK go past 250: Pakistan once again seem to be in no hurry. they have brought up their 250. Asad Shafiq is still getting his eye in, whilw Misbah, who has faced over 100 deliveries is striking at 21 at the moment. West Indies picked up the wicket of Azhar Ali earlier. They will eye at least a couple of wickets more in this session.

  • 10:45 PM IST

    Azhar dismissed: After playing so well, Azhar Ali is bowled by Roston Chase for 127 off 334 deliveries. He looked to play a slog sweep, but the ball spun in sharply, dislodging Azhar’s stumps. Asad Shafiq is the new batsman for Pakistan. He will look to build a big partnership with his skipper Misbah.

    Waqar Younis has his say on working with PAK captains:

  • 10:27 PM IST

    Slow start post lunch: Pakistan once again are not showing any urgency in the early stages of the second session. They will look to get many more runs than they did in the first sessions, which will take them to a commanding position in the match. The good news is that the rain has stayed away so far. Hopefully, it stays away for the rest of the day.

  • 9:38 PM IST

    And that’s Lunch! Pakistan manage to score just 58 runs in the extended first session, where 30 overs were bowled. Azhar Ali has looked in control again. His 14th Test ton has put Pakistan in a good position. However, Pakistan scored at less than 2 an over in that session, when there was no real pressure on them. Credit to West Indies for a disciplined bowling performance. Here’s ut lunch report: Azhar’s ton guides PAK to 227-3 at lunch on Day 2, 3rd Test amidst disciplined WI bowling

  • 9:21 PM IST

    Tuk-tuk from both ends: Misbah has faced over 50 deliveries and is still in single digits. He scored his first boundary off his 52nd delivery to move on to 5. Pakistan have not really shown intent to score runs at a quick pace. Azhar might have gone past his ton, but is content playing a defensive game at the moment. West Indies will hope to pick up at least one more wicket before lunch.

  • 8:54 PM IST

    Here are some images and video of the guard of honour given to Misbah:

  • 8:34 PM IST

    Azhar Ali hundred: Pakistan opener Azhar Ali brings up his 14th Test ton and his second of the series. West Indies, who did not take the new ball right away, eventually took it after 89 overs. It took Misbah 22 deliveries to get off the mark. Azhar, who resumed his innings on 85 scored his first run of the day after facing as many as 24 deliveries. Safe to say, Pakistan are taking things slowly.

  • 7:45 PM IST

    Younis Khan dismissed: Younis Khan has been dismissed leg before for 18 off 75. He took a review, but the on-field umpire’s decision stood. Misbah-ul-Haq, also playing his last Test gets a guard of honour, like Younis Khan did on Day One.

  • 7:19 PM IST

    Sun’s out! The sun is out at Roseau and the play has begun on time. Since we lost as many as 21 overs yesterday, play began 30 minutes before to make up for the lost overs. Younis Khan has already cracked a boundary in the opening stages of the day. Azhar Ali at the other end is patiently approaching his 14th Test ton.


Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket updates of Day 2 of the third and final Test between West Indies and Pakistan at Roseau. I, Pramod Ananth, will bring all the live cricket scores and interesting tweets from the contest. Come to think of it, I am fortunate enough to cover Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan’s last-ever international assignment. However, on the opening day, rain played spoilsport as we witnessed only 69 overs being bowled. After being invited to bat, Pakistan ended day’s play at 169 for 2, thanks to Azhar Ali and Babar Azam’s half-centuries. All the same, Azhar is unbeaten on 85 and will eye his second century of the series. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Pakistan vs West Indies 2017, 3rd Test at  Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica

Playing in his last Test, Younis was given a guard of honour by West Indies. Younis shook hands with West Indies captain Jason Holder and thanked the rest of the team for such respectful gesture. West Indies, however, were unable to dismiss Younis who scored 10 off 44 before the umpire called it stumps.

Earlier in the series, Younis became the first player from Pakistan to score 10,000 runs. Overall, he became the 13th player to achieve the feat. Interestingly, Younis needs another 67 runs to go past former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar’s career tally of 10,122 runs.

With Misbah-ul-Haq still to bat, we may as well see another guard of honour.

For West Indies, Alzarri Joseph and Roston Chase took a wicket apiece. Shannon Gabriel, hero of the last match, ended with figures of 19-6-32-0. It was Azhar’s masterful batting that kept West Indies at bay. He took as many as 219 deliveries and hit 7 fours and 2 sixes to lace his attractive 85. The highest run-scorer for Pakistan in 2016, Azhar will look to emulate the same this year as well.
