Day night match again? Really?
Last match got delayed by 2 hours due to light failures.

193/0
Wow.
It's been a decade to see both Pakistani batsmen still playing at 193/0. Rare indeed !

279/1 is very impressive.
Expect 500+ total & declaration.
Windies bat and gets all out in 200s.
Followon imposed.
They barely make another 200 and match over in 4 days if not 3 days.
Test cricket gone to dogs if it's this predictable short affair.

If that Pakistani spinner take 5 wickets in this test he would surpass ashwin's record? Good luck!

Would there be any effect on current match regarding miandad vs afridi fights & mafia threats to afridi?

They did draw in England to be fair, where Australia and India both lost.

Come on. Pakistan is #1 test team until last week. It's not by luck they are there.

Match is heading towards a draw. Yes. It looks like a flat wicket road indeed.

Pakistan deserve to lose this one tbh, although WI are still so far behind that it isn't going to happen.

Pakistan will win by about 150 runs

I'm pretty sure 302* would be the highest score in a lost cause if Pakistan did lose it. Just wonder whether 8-49 would be the best bowling figures in an innings in a losing cause.

Bravo gets to a ton. Was an exciting prospect but had a lean year so glad to see him churn out a tough fourth innings hundred. Would be keen to see highlights

I obviously don't know the pitch state but I'm pretty impressed with WI achieving more than I expected in this game.

69 runs needed, two wickets left, last hour approaches!

This was a cracker of a Test, especially the last day.

I was rooting for the Windies, though I'm a big fan of Pakistan as well.
But Windies are the underdogs - and to come back with a winning chance from where they were after 3 days - was just amazing.

Pity Bravo couldn't carry on. Excellent return catch by Yasir Shah.
