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".

Saudi Arabia counting down the seconds until Trump arrives
Saudi leaders felt Obama was reluctant to get involved in the civil war in Syria and was tilting toward Shiite-dominated Iran. McMaster said that the speech is aimed at uniting the broader Muslim world against the common enemies of all civilisation.

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.

Ryan backs Trump, cautions against 'rush to judgment'
They called on the administration "to provide records of interactions with former Director Comey, including any audio recordings". When that ended, Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey, and he eventually turned the conversation to Flynn.

"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.
