Dream Test debut for West Indies spinner Bishoo

Georgetown: West Indies leg-spinner Bishoo made a dream start to his Test career when he grabbed four crucial wickets in his first bowl which occurred on Friday at the Guyana National Stadium.

The 25-year-old was the main weapon for the home side and ended with 4-68 as Pakistan were dismissed for 160 in the First Digicel Test.

This gave the Windies a lead of 66 on first innings. By the close they reached 34-2 in the second innings - an overall lead of 100, with three days left in the contest.

"It felt great to perform the way I did here at home. I always give my best, whenever I take the field and to get four in my first bowl, on home soil, is a special feeling," Bishoo said.

Bishoo``s first Test wicket was Pakistani skipper Misbah ul-Haq, who was trapped leg-before.

West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson said he was pleased with Bishoo``s approach and the overall commitment of the team.

Bishoo was well supported by Ravi Rampaul, with three wickets on his return to the Test stage, and skipper Darren Sammy, who got two crucial wickets.
