Brathwaite, Dowrich raise West Indies' hope after top order collapse

Brathwaite, Dowrich raise West Indies' hope after top order collapse

With skipper, Jason Holder's 5-wicket haul, West Indies wrapped up Pakistani batting on 208 in the second innings, requiring just 153 runs to win a historic Test in UAE.

West Indies are on the brink of a first Test win under Jason Holder after Pakistan made life hard for themselves with a host of needless errors on day four in Sharjah.

Earlier, a lot depended on the two overnight batsmen Sarfraz Ahmed and Azhar Ali to build a big lead for Pakistan.

Pakistan have already won the three-Test series 2-0 and would look to restrict West Indies from reaching the paltry total to whitewash them.

West Indies was a dodgy 67/5 when they came together, adding 47 runs.

From 23 without loss, West Indies slumped to 67-5 with leg-spinner Yasir Shah (3-30) dismissing Leon Johnson leg-before for 12, Darren Bravo caught behind for three and Marlon Samuels caught in the deep for 10 in the space of 13 balls.

Holder claimed the last two wickets to complete his first five-for in Tests.

According to details, the national team have a lead of 31 runs on West Indies.

The fight back continues from Pakistan, they have accounted for 3 West Indian wickets.

Brathwaite became the fifth West Indies batsman to carry his bat through a completed Test innings.

The tourists were whitewashed 3-0 in the preceding one-day and Twenty20 worldwide series, as performances have failed to improve following the sacking of popular coach Phil Simmons in September.

It took West Indies less than five overs to dismiss the final two wickets as Pakistan were bowled out for 208, setting a target of 152 runs for the visitors. "We didn't meet our standards but I can't fault the players".

With an incredibly small lead and only six wickets in hand, the first hour will decide if Pakistan are in with a chance.

Left-handed Aslam (17) top-edged Holder's short pitched delivery to fine leg and Asad Shafiq got a pair in the match when he lobbed an easy catch to gully off another Holder short delivery.

However, both men were caught at slip off Bishoo following poor strokes, Azhar's dismissal coming amid a post-lunch collapse that also saw Mohammad Amir (8) farcically run out, having stood motionless for several seconds as a diving Chase pulled off a superb piece of fielding at long-off to prevent a six.
