Jermaine Lannaman, Gleaner Writer Fast bowlers Alzarri Joseph and Shannon Gabriel combined to share six wickets, however, at tea on the fourth day of the first Brighto Paints-Q Mobile Test between the West Indies and Pakistan, it is the latter who holds the upper hand. Resuming the day on 201 for four and needing another 86 runs to overhaul the West Indies first innings score of 286, Pakistan were dismissed for 407 on the stroke of the interval for a lead of 121 runs. Bowling with impressive speed and at good lengths for the most part, Joseph and Gabriel claimed three for 71 and three for 92, respectively. Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo ended with one for 106, and part-time off-spinner Roston Chase, one for 37, and all-rounder Jason Holder, one for 65. Pakistan captain, Misbah-UL-Haq, who during the day passed 5,000 runs to become his country’s seventh all-time top runs scorer, was left unbeaten on 99. This was after he was dropped twice. He was largely supported by wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed, who hit 54, while Misbah’s overnight partner, Asad Shafiq, who resumed on five, went on to score 22.
