Second Test: Pakistan collapse on 81, WI win by 106 runs

Deprived of the landmark when stranded on 99 not out in the first innings of the first Test in Jamaica, the Pakistan captain appeared destined to accomplish the feat on this occasion, only to be dismissed in a weird manner, triggering a mini collapse in which three wickets fell for 13 runs just before tea.

Pakistan were all out for 81 in their second innings in 34.4 overs, unable to cope with the pace of Gabriel, who finished with match figures of 9/92.

Captain and seamer Jason Holder claimed three for 23 while pacer Alzarri Joseph picked up two for 42. "Having said that, we just need to go there and do what we need to do on day five".

"We highlighted a few areas before this game that we wanted to touch on and I feel as though we have really touched them and hit them".

Former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg praised Mr Farron's "passionate" manifesto speech, saying the election is about young people. To persuade voters, they need to be seen to be doing this for the right reasons in the eyes of the public.

And despite clear attempts at occupying the crease, West Indies lost opener Kraigg Braihwaite for 43, Roston Chase for 23, Shane Dowrich for 2 as Pakistan got reward for their toil.

In the previous match, Younis became the only Pakistan player to score 10,000 Test runs while Misbah remained 99* as the tourists won by seven wickets in Kingston.

Misbah fell one short of his century in the first innings but was dismissed for a duck by Gabriel in the second after being comfortably caught at gully by Shai Hope.

Hope appeared to have blunted the threat successfully through more than five hours of watchful batting and he was within sight of a maiden Test century when he drove Shah to cover where Azhar Ali held the catch that triggered the late collapse.

But no one had enough to catch leader Busch as the field was setting itself up for a frantic dash to the finish. He still has just one top-10 (a fifth at Texas) and actually lost a spot in the championship standings to 25th.

"You can easily say that it's about batting on a day-five pitch".

West Indies (squad): KC Brathwaite, KOA Powell, SO Hetmyer, SD Hope, VA Singh, RL Chase, SO Dowrich†, JO Holder*, D Bishoo, AS Joseph, ST Gabriel. At 11 for two, the West Indies fast bowlers were firing and given the uncertain nature of the fifth day track, Pakistan were searching for runs.

"First innings, we should have got a bigger lead".

Pakistan went to lunch at 35-5 and was reduced after the interval to 36-7.

However, due to the current situation, one should ask if this is not the time to test the players who will be staying next season. The two are just a part of five man shortlist drawn up by the Reds as they aim to compete in four competitions next season.

The decisive third Test begins next Wednesday at Windsor Park.
