Jermaine Blackwood scored a swashbuckling 85 to give West Indies a glimmer of hope. He first put on 63 for the fifth wicket with Roston Chase and then followed it up with a quick fire 57-run stand with Hope. Once Blackwood fell, the chances of a West Indies win seemed bleak, but Hope offered some resistance at one end. He then put on 45 with Bishoo, before edging one to slip, giving Zulfiqar Babar his first wicket of the match. West Indies started the day well, but they lost Chase right after half hour s play. Just when it looked like Blackwood and Hope will bat out the rest of the session, Blackwood fell five short of his second ton, with half hour to go for the first session. Pakistan tightened their grip even further as they got rid of West Indies skipper Jason Holder for 16.

Yasir had picked up his five-wicket haul with the wicket of Holder and had nine at the break. He got his second 10-wicket haul of his career after getting rid f Miguel Cummins for a duck, after Zulfiqar got rid of Hope. That was Zulfiqar’s first wicket of the match. He doubled his tally after he dismissed Bishoo, which was the final nail in West Indies’ coffin. Full Cricket Updates, Pakistan vs West Indies, 2nd Test, Day 5 at Abu Dhabi

Pakistan had over 150 overs to bowl at West Indies, setting them a target of 456. West Indies in reply once again got off to a poor start as opener Len Johnson was dismissed early. Kraigg Brathwaite, who returned to the opening slot after batting at No. 3 in the first innings scored a gritty 67 and kept Pakistan at bay. But he was trapped in front by Mohammad Nawaz, bringing his promising innings to an end. Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels scored 13 and 23 respectively and it was up to the West Indies middle and lower-order to come to their rescue once again.

Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq too was among the runs but fell four runs short of yet another ton. Pakistan s first innings also had tons from Asad Shafiq and Sarfraz as they went on to make 452. Shannon Gabriel picked up his first five-wicket haul in Tests. West Indies in reply were bundled out for just 224. Bravo top-scored for them with 43 and it was Yasir Shah, who was the thorn in West Indies flesh, picking up four wickets.
