ABU DHABI – West Indies’ nightmare run against Pakistan showed no imminent sign of abating as they slumped to a 133-run defeat in the second Test here yesterday, to concede the three-match series without so much as a whimper.

Resuming the final day on 171 for four in pursuit of an improbable 456 for victory at the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Zayed Stadium, the Caribbean side were dismissed for 322 in their second innings, 45 minutes before tea to suffer their eighth straight loss on the ill-fated tour.

Jermaine Blackwood narrowly missed out on his second Test hundred with 95 and Shai Hope got a Test-best 41 but West Indies found the burden of a record run chase too onerous, and lost their last six wickets for 151 runs. (CMC)
