right decision 2 play 3 spinners I think
but surprised they rested both wahab and amir, and decided to stick with sohail

Sohail and Rahat Ali are the quicks in the team.

Interesting Test match in progress in Sharjah. Pakistan 287 & 87/4  West Indies 337. Pakistan lead by 31. West Indies have been surprisingly good and competitive in this series.

Pakistan looked on course for a big total in the first innings Sami, Younus, Misbah ans Sarfraz all made 50s, but Gabriel 3-67 and Bishoo 4-77 quelled their threat.

West Indies reply was all about the brilliant 142* by Kraigg Brathwaite. He became the 5th West Indian to carry his bat. Chase 50 and Dowrich 47 chipped in. Wahab 5-88 took his second Michelle. Yasir Shah didn't turn a ball on a pitch where Bishoo got a decent amount.

Pakistan where in disarray in their second innings 48-4, West Indian skipper Jason Holder 3-10. It would've been worst as Sarfraz was out off a no ball to Gabriel.

All to play for heading into day 4

West Indies should win this with only 39 needed and 5 wickets in hand. This partnership digging them out of trouble.
Brathwaite in the runs again

Not many sides win a test match in the UAE. West Indies have done pretty well.
Brathwaite sets a record for being unbeaten in both innings as an opener, carried his team

First win away for west indies in 9 years!

^ Good for team West Indies! They showed a lot of grit to come back and win the last Test match. They bowled well too. A busy Test schedule will do the Test side a lot of good. World of Test cricket needs a strong West Indies side. C'mon lads!

Kraigg Brathwaite could end up being his generations Shiv Chanderpaul, all the big names are becoming T20 mercenaries whilst Brathwaite will be left carrying the burden of the Windies batting...
