Pakistan win 1st test match by 56 runs vs West Indies


Pakistan won day-night Test match against West Indies by 56 runs at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

A draw had seemed likely before Darren got out, caught and bowled by Yasir Shah, after scoring 116 off 249 balls. He struck 10 fours and a four in his gritty knock.

Darren and captain Jason Holder, who remained not out on 40 off 127 balls, frustrated all efforts of Misbah & Co for 30 overs.

Bravo kept Pakistan s victory bid on hold during his resistance-filled 410-minute long 116 and it needed leg-spinner Yasir Shah to make a stunning two-handed catch to end his innings.

West Indies were finally bowled for 289 with just 12 over left in the match.
Paceman Mohammad Amir finished with 3-63 and Shah took 2-113.

The match was a good advertisement for Test cricket as it had a triple hundred (302 not out) by Azhar Ali, 8-49 by leg-spinner Bishoo and two fighting knocks by Bravo.
