Pakistan inched closer to victory in the first Test against West Indies after picking up two wickets before close of play on Day 4 in Dubai with the Caribbean team needing 241 more runs to win the match in the fifth and final day. West Indies were 95/2 at stumps with Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo at the crease. Mohammad Amir picked up both wickets for Pakistan. Earlier, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo picked up his career best figures of 8-49 as Pakistan suffered a dramatic second-innings batting collapse, leaving West Indies to chase 346 runs to win their first ever day-night match. Having bowled out West Indies for 357 in the first innings with Yasir Shah picking up a five-wicket haul, Pakistan had a 222-run lead from first innings but captain Misbah-ul-Haq didn’t enforce the follow-on. They were bowled out for 123 in the second innings.
