Making use of a receptive bowling track, the regional side has claimed two wickets so far to leave the visitors at 59 for two at lunch on the third day. This in reply to the West Indies first innings total of 286.

 

Leading the way for the West Indies bowling are fast bowlers Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder, who has figures of one for 21 and one for 17, respectively.

The not out batsmen are Babar Azam, 12, and captain Younis Khan, who, in his third to last Test of his career, is yet to get off the mark.

Earlier, the West Indies, who resumed the rain-affected encounter on 278 for nine, added eight more to the total before fast bowler Shannon Gabriel was bowled by standout fast bowler, Mohammad Amir, for five.

Holder, not out 55 overnight, was left unbeaten on 57. Amir ended with six for 44 off 26 overs.
