Kingston – Pakistan were 107 for three in their second innings at tea on the fourth day of the second Test against West Indies at Sabina Park in Jamaica, for an overall lead of 259.

Loose bowling from the Windies, after they were dismissed for 150 to concede a first innings lead of 152, allowed the Pakistanis to get off to a flying start batting a second time.

The Caribbean side offered too many scoring opportunities, and openers Imran Butt and Abid Ali gave the visitors their best start of the series, sharing 70 for the first wicket, but they were both dismissed before tea along with Azhar Ali.

Alzarri Joseph got Abid caught at gully for 29, Kyle Mayers claimed Imran caught at square cover for 37, and West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite had Azhar caught at backward square leg for 22 on the stroke of tea, leaving Pakistan captain Babar Azam, not out on five, at the break.

Earlier, the Windies were bowled out about an hour after lunch with left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi leading the demolition for Pakistan with 6-51 from 17.3 overs and Mohammad Abbas taking 3-44 from 18 overs.

Nkrumah Bonner finished with the top score of 37 for West Indies, his Jamaican compatriot Jermaine Blackwood made 33 and Jason Holder added 26, but none of the other West Indies batsmen reached 20.

The Windies lead the two-Test series 1-0 after a one-wicket victory inside four days in the first Test, which was also played behind closed doors at the same venue.

Summarised scores:

Pakistan 302 for nine declared (Fawad Alam 124 not out, Babar Azam 75, Mohammad Rizwan 31, Faheem Ashraf 26, Shaheen Shah Afridi 19; Jayden Seales 3-31, Kemar Roach 3-68, Jason Holder 2-46) and 107 for three (Imran Butt 37, Abid Ali 29, Azhar Ali 22).

West Indies 150 (Nkrumah Bonner 37, Jermaine Blackwood 33, Jason Holder 26, Roston Chase 10; Shaheen Shah Afridi 17.3-7-51-6, Mohammad Abbas 3-44).
