Pakistan openers Azhar Ali and Sami Aslam decimated the West Indies with a double-century stand as their team cruised to 279-1 on the opening day of the second ever day-night cricket Test on Thursday. Azhar marked Pakistan’s 400th Test with an unbeaten 146, hitting 14 boundaries. Aslam made 90, missing out on his maiden hundred in his fifth Test after captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and opted to bat. Both batsmen shared a 215-run partnership in nearly five hours, before Aslam was bowled by offspinner Roston Chase for the West Indies’ lone success.
