BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel snatched a five-wicket haul in a Man-of-the-Match performance as West Indies beat Pakistan by 106 runs on the final day of the second Test here Thursday, to level the three-match series at 1-1.

Set 188 for victory at Kensington Oval, Pakistan folded meekly for 81, with Gabriel finishing with five for 11 to end with match figures of nine for 92.

Captain and seamer Jason Holder claimed three for 23 while pacer Alzarri Joseph picked up two for 42.

Resuming from a precarious position of 35 for five at lunch, Pakistan failed to rebound and lost their remaining wickets for 46 runs to be all out, 38 minutes before the scheduled tea interval.

Wicketkeeper Safraz Ahmed top-scored with 23 and tail-ender Mohammad Amir scored 20, staging the best partnership of the innings with 42 for the eighth wicket.
