With two days of the match still left, it seems like this second Test match would be done and dusted well before. Pakistan have made and maintained their sheer dominance since the start of the Day One and have continued with it thanks to some brilliant performances by the hosts. They have not left any chance to West Indies team to bounce back into the game at any moment of the game. With the hosts already having a lead of 342 runs with 9 wickets still in hand, they would be aiming for the target of 500 to be put against the inconsistent visitors and from thereon they will try to bowl them out to seal the match and also the series. The live telecast and live streaming of the match will be available on and Ten HD 1, Ten 1. With the three days still left, this Test seems to be in Pakistan s favour but West Indies can still comeback like the did in the first Test.

When Pakistan come out to bat, they will be wanting to bat, as much as they can as they have a considerable amount of overs and also some of the best Test players that we see in international cricket right now. West Indies on the other side have had nothing positive on Day Three. They were all-out first and the had to bowl 39 overs and have got just one wicket. They will have to do something which they haven t done so far in this Test and try bowling out Pakistan as quickly as they can. Because the way the hosts have batted, their intentions are looking pretty clear that they would like the lead to be extended till 500. Having a target in the region of 500 is as if a mental setback and that can add up to the West Indian getting out in no matter of time due to succumbing to the pressure.

West Indies have never looked in the game so far, except for the initial overs of the match where they got rid of the Pakistani openers quickly. But since then nothing has gone their way, or if anything did go their way they just couldn t keep up being consistent with it. they have lost their track every time when it felt like they were on it. With almost 180 overs remaining in the match, Pakistan has every chance of winning this Test given the way they are placed in the contest right now. It will be very difficult for West Indies to do something magical that they haven t done in this series so far. Or as a matter of fact, since the time they have come to the UAE for this Pakistan tour. So if they want to at least draw this match, the visitors need to pull out something magical or else this match has taken its route to a forgone conclusion from the West Indian perspective.
