    west indies should have gone to review the appeal for asad shafiq then would have taken day 2 first wicket of gabriel......then the score would have been less than 500...well pla azhar ali for his wonderfull knock for his thriple century fourth man to score thriple century for stan in his lowest test matches better to play him as many as test matches to prove his talent in the upcoming series....better to provide him as top oreder for his upcoming series for england......
