New Delhi: Welcome to the Live streaming and updates of Day 3 of play from 3rd Test between Pakistan and West Indies in Sharjah.
PAKISTAN 2ND INNINGS
West Indies have a tight grip on this Test match and they would want to remove this pair cheaply on the 4th day morning.
OVER 39 | SCORE 87/4 (Azhar Ali 45*, Sarfraz 19*)
Gabriel bowled a sharp bouncer to Sarfraz which was caught at first slip by Darren Bravo, but unfortunately for Windies it was no ball. This happened in on the 2nd ball of the 31st over.
Pakistan are under serious pressure and some good spell from West Indies fast bowlers especially Jason Holder.
OVER 30 | SCORE 71/4 (Azhar Ali 40*, Sarfraz 9*)
Now, Roston Chase dismissed Pakistan's captain Misbah for 4 runs. Someone needs to stay with Azhar Ali to give Pakistan some lead over Windies. This match is in complete control of visitors.
WICKET: Misbah-ul-Haq c Bishoo b Chase 4 (6b)
OVER 20 | SCORE 46/3 (Azhar Ali 24*, Misbah 4*)
This is some fast bowling from the West Indian captain Jason Holder. He has accounted for 3 batsman in quick succession and brought his team right in the game. Pakistan are in real trouble for the first time in this Test match.
WICKET: Sami Aslam c Joseph b Holder 17 (42b)
WICKET: Asad Shafiq c Bravo b Holder 0 (8b)
WICKET: Younis Khan c †Dowrich b Holder 0 (5b)
OVER 10 | SCORE 32/0 (Azhar Ali 16*, Sami Aslam 15*)
TEA! Steady start to second innings from Pakistan. No early set-back so far as Azhar Ali, Sami Aslam look to negate West Indies' lead quickly.
WEST INDIES 1ST INNINGS
OVER 115.4 | SCORE 337/10 (Brathwaite 134*)
Kraigg Brathwaite becomes the 5th West Indian opener after Frank Worrell, Conrad Hunte, Desmond Haynes and Chris Gayle to bat through the whole innings. For Pakistan, Wahab Riaz completes a 5-wicket haul after removing both Gabriel and Joseph.
WICKET: ST Gabriel c Sarfraz Ahmed b Wahab Riaz 0 (7b)
WICKET: AS Joseph c Yasir Shah b Wahab Riaz 6 (10b)
OVER 110 | SCORE 323/8 (Brathwaite 134*, Joseph 0*)
Devendra Bishoo caught behind by Sarfaraz Ahmed as Wahab Riaz claims his 3rd wicket. This brings an end to the 60-run partnership between Brathwaite and Bishoo.
WICKET: D Bishoo c Sarfraz Ahmed b Wahab Riaz 27 (85b)
OVER 105 | SCORE 314/7 (Brathwaite 130*, Bishoo 22*)
LUNCH! Windies enjoy rare comfort as Pakistan's hopes of winning this match look dwindled.
OVER 100 | SCORE 304/7 (Brathwaite 128*, Bishoo 18*)
300 up for West Indies in 100 overs. What a gigantic innings Brathwaite is building that too against all odds. Bishoo just needs to stay there and then the visitors can get some thing out of the match for the very first time.
OVER 90 | SCORE 283/7 (Brathwaite 114*, Bishoo 10*)
Opener Kraigg Brathwaite continues his journey as No. 9 batsman, Devendra Bishoo joins him in the middle after skipper Jason Holder was bowled by Mohammad Amir, who picked up his third wicket of the match.
WICKET: JO Holder b Mohammad Amir 16 (30b)
OVER 80 | SCORE 251/6 (Brathwaite 101*, Holder 7*)
Century for Kraigg Brathwaite as West Indies reach the 250-run mark. Need to continue this performance and take a decent lead before handing over the bat to Pakistan.
On Day 2, West Indies incurred a disastrous start to the first innings after witnessing 4 batsmen depart for a meager score of 68 runs. Soon everyone was expecting the visitors to be bowled out somewhere between 150-200 until opener Kraigg Brathwaite decided to continue the fight.
Together with Roston Chase (50), Brathwaite put in a partnership of 83 runs before the former was removed by Mohammad Amir.
With the Chase still on crease, it was later Shane Dowrich who registered 47 runs before being bowled by Wahab Riaz. Before Dowrich's fall, the duo had put on another partnership of 83 run and West Indies were seen 6 down for a total of 234.
Skipper Jason Holder then marched on to the pitch and will continue play on Day 3 with Brathwaite on 6 and 95 respectively.
The 23-year-old Brathwaite will be eyeing only his 5th hundred in Tests and it is largely his composure and belief which the visitors have to thank for giving them a shot at surpassing Pakistan's first innings total.
For the hosts, Mohammad Amir (2), Wahab Riaz (2), Yasir Shah (1) and Zulfiqar Babar (1) were the wicket takers.
Earlier, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo finished with figures of 4-77 while fast bowlers Shannon Gabriel took 3-67 and Alzarri Joseph 2-57 to dismiss Pakistan for 281.
At close skipper Jason Holder was unbeaten on six as West Indies were 244-6, just 37 runs away from Pakistan`s first innings total of 281.
