BRIDGETOWN – Pakistan, replying to the West Indies’ first innings total of 312, were 36 without loss in 14 overs at lunch on the second day of the second cricket Test in the Brighto Paints Q Mobile Cup series at Kensington Oval here Monday.
The not out batsmen are Azhar Ali and Ahmed Shehzad, both on 16.
Earlier, both Roston Chase (131) and captain Jason Holder (58) were dismissed without adding to their overnight scores as the West Indies lost their last four wickets for 26 runs.

Fast bowler Mohammad Abbas was Pakistan’s most successful bowler with four for 56 while Mohammad Amir ended with three for 65 and leg-spinner Yasir Shah, two for 83. (EZS)
