New Delhi: Welcome to our Live coverage of 2nd Test between Pakistan and West Indies.
PAKISTAN 1ST INNINGS
OVER 84 || SCORE 304/4 (Misbah-ul-Haq 90)
First day's play come to an end with the fall of Younis Khan, who made 127 off 205 balls. The Pakistan legend became Kraigg Brathwaite's lone victim of the match.
Despite losing both the openers early in the day, veterans Youni and Misbah-ul-Hap (90*) toyed with Windies bowlers, and posted a 175-run stand.
OVER 71 | SCORE 242/3 (Younis 102*, Misbah 54*)
Another glorious fifty for the skipper. He is looking in good touch and hitting sixes at will against these bowlers.
Younis hit Chase through point to bring up his 33rd Test ton. What a landmark for him! Remember, he was out of the first Test as he was suffering from Dengue.
OVER 50 | SCORE 172/3 (Younis 70*, Misbah 16*)
Younis completed his half-century in just 88 balls, what a comeback after missing the 1st Test of the series. What a player he has been for Pakistan in recent years.
West Indies are bowling with a lot of heart especially Gabriel, but he is not getting much of a help from other bowlers.
OVER 40 | SCORE 129/3 (Younis 47*, Misbah 0*)
Just when Pakistan were looking in full control of the match, they lose another wickcet to a lose shot. But before Asad got out, he completed his 3000 runs in Test cricket. What an achievement for this young batsman. Misbah-ul-Haq came to crease at number 5 to take gaurd with Younis.
WICKET: Asad Shafiq b Gabriel 68 (121b)
OVER 31 | SCORE 95/2 (Shafiq 54*, Younis 29*)
Terrific recovery from Paksitan who were once 42 for the loss of two wickets. Asad Shafiq completes a glorious half-century as the game halts for LUNCH!
OVER 20 | SCORE 63/2 (Shafiq 39*, Younis 14*)
Not the most welcomed start for Pakistan as Azhar Ali and Sami Aslam depart cheaply. Asad Shafiq, on the other hand is already looking to clinch his fifty with Younish Khan in support.
WICKET: Sami Aslam b Bishoo 6 (30b)
WICKET: Azhar Ali b Gabriel 0 (9b)
Following a nail-biting win on 5th day of 1st Test, Pakistan take on West Indies in second Test match in Abu Dhabi.

Leading the three-match series 1-0, Misbhah-ul-Haq and Co. will once again like to assert their domination over the Windies right from the start of the 2nd Test.
Azhar Ali made headlines in the initial encounter after scoring a triple ton for Pakistan, enabling his side to take a big first innings lead.
Pakistan's inability to continue the same momentum in second innings handed West Indies a chance to win the match after they bowled out the opponents for 123 in the second innings with Devendra Bishoo taking 8 wickets.
