ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – West Indies were left needing a miracle to save the second Test and avoid yet another series loss to Pakistan, after their batting again let them down on the penultimate day of the second Test yesterday.

Set a mammoth 456 for victory, West Indies lost their top four to end on 171 for four, still requiring a further 285 on today’s final day to pull off an unlikely win at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Opener Kraigg Brathwaite stroked 67 and Jermaine Blackwood was unbeaten on 41 at the close, but the sound start the Caribbean side needed in order to stave off a second defeat in the three-Test series never materialised.

West Indies were 112 for two but lost Marlon Samuels for 23 and Brathwaite in the space of four overs, to slip to 124 for four. (CMC)
