It had been all Pakistan on this West Indies tour to the sub-continent. It started with a thrashing in the T20s, moved to the ODIs and then the first Test – first pink ball Test in the region – which went down to the wire. Now the momentum has continued into the traditional day affair with the red ball. And it should not have been – not at least on day two.

After bowling Pakistan out for 452 – thanks to a fifer by Shannon Gabriel and three by Jason Holder – West Indies provided a tough battle with the bat. Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels were among the runs for the visitors. But in the closing stages, Samuels and Kraigg Brathwaite squandered their wickets to hand Pakistan the advantage back.
