Pakistan vs West Indies: West Indies Very Close to Victory (Bangladesh, Other Countries)

Current Sport News » : Kraigg Brathwaite hit an unbeaten 142 and red-hot Jason Holder then took 3-10 as a resurgent West Indies put Pakistan under pressure in the third Test in Sharjah on Tuesday. Brathwaite held together West Indies' first innings of 337 with a resolute 142 not out before Holder jolted Pakistan with three wickets in 17 balls to propel the tourists into a strong position at the end of the third day. At close Pakistan were struggling at 87-4 with opener Azhar Ali 45 not out and Sarfraz Ahmed 19 not out, leading only by 31 runs with six wickets intact and two days to play. Kraigg Brathwaite celebrates after reaching his century on Day 3 of the final Test at Sharjah. Pakistan needed a big effort after conceding a 56-run lead, but from 37-0 they lost four wickets in the space of 11 runs with Holder firing on all cylinders and the Pakistan batsmen playing rash shots. If West Indies pull off a win it will be their first in 13 Tests since beating England at home in May last year while Pakistan will spoil a good chance of a 3-0 whitewash after winning the first two Tests in Dubai (56 runs) and Abu Dhabi (133 runs).
