After the first Test saw Pakistan and West Indies tussle it out with a pink ball in a day-night format, the second Test resumed its traditional nature of the red ball and day proceedings.

And as if nothing had changed, Pakistan maintained their stronghold in the series with the hosts remaining strong at 304/4 at close with play stopped early due to bad light. The pioneers of Pakistan’s great start were Younus Khan (127), Misbah-ul-Haq (90*) and Asad Shafiq (68) after the hosts were in a precarious position early on to be troubled at 42/2.

The onus now lies on the West Indies to chip in with some quick wickets early on on Saturday if they are to shift this game back in their favour.
