BRIDGETOWN – The West Indies continued to struggle, reaching 166 for six in 54 overs at tea on the opening day of the second cricket Test against Pakistan in the Brighto Paints Q Mobile Cup three-match series at Kensington Oval here Sunday.

The not out batsmen are Roston Chase, on 70 and captain Jason Holder, who is yet to score.

Chase has so far struck 11 fours in his unbeaten innings off 110 balls in 163 minutes at the crease.

The West Indies, who won the toss and batted, resumed from 72 for three at lunch and lost the wickets of Kieran Powell, Vishaul Singh and Shane Dowrich during the session.

Powell, who restarted on 29, was given out leg before wicket to fast bowler Mohammad Amir on a television review for 38 after the initial appeal was turned down by the on field umpire.

Singh made just three before he edged a low catch to second slip and was caught by Younis Khan off fast bowler Mohammad Abbas.  

Dowrich became the first Test wicket for debutant leg-spinner Shadab Khan when he was caught at slip, also by Younis for 29.

In the pre-lunch session, the West Indies lost opener Kraigg Brathwaite for nine and Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope for one and five respectively.
