Pak vs WI: Shaheen, and Faheem strike early to keep Pakistan’s hopes of victory alive

Pak vs WI: Pakistan will look forward to Day 4 of the second Test match against the West Indies with great confidence, as the visitors put the host behind with the stellar bowling foot of Shaheen Afridi and Faheem Ashraf on Sunday.

Fawad’s 124 defeat lifted the visitors to 302 of the nine announced in their first innings before Shaheen removed all openers quickly and Faheem Ashraf added another home team to 39 out of three in response to the qualification.

Combined with one wicket in the thrilling conclusion of the first Test at the same stadium last week, Pakistan’s quest for a limited victory in the series has been hampered by rain and poor coverage of the pitch.

The whole second day was overshadowed by rain and the cooking field cooked during the game did not go well on the third day until very late afternoon as the wet spot was at the south end of the stadium, according to the players throwing. a source of concern for the West Indies.

Initial attempts to make the game go on in the morning following another 90-minute delay led to an eight-minute submission before complaints from Jason Holder, backed by his bowlers and captain Kraigg Brathwaite, were finally heard by longtime match officials before consultation.

When the game finally started to heat up in the afternoon, Pakistan, which also started at 212 night out of four, almost relied entirely on Fawad to push them to 300 runs.

Two Jayden Seales wickets and two of Holder’s two balls kept the visitors out.

However Fawad, who restarted his innings in 76 after retiring due to fatigue and extreme heat on the first day, will not be denied a fourth-century Test in 12 innings.

It was an innings that strengthened the value of his return to world level after being ignored for 11 years after his debut in the old Pakistani colors in 2009.

‘Motivated by Father’
Returning to the point where Faheem’s wicket fell, and seeing Mohammad Rizwan and Nauman Ali walk one after the other, the 35-year-old remained steady and reached the famous mark by dragging two Kyle Mayers.

Despite the embarrassment of contributing to Hasan Ali’s demise, his undefeated 124, which lasted more than six hours when he faced 213 appearances and was broken by four fours, was a huge effort.

“It was a big challenge there and what Babar (Azam) did on the first day was very important,” Fawad said at the end of the day reflecting on his efforts with the team.

“You always feel proud when you lead a hundred of your country so I’m very happy right now. Dad has been encouraging me. He told me to keep trying and my time will come and now it’s here and I’m trying to use it to the fullest.”

Kemar Roach and Seales led the effort to throw the West Indies by three wickets each.

Shaheen then took full advantage of his new ball by removing Kieran Powell and Brathwaite from consecutive overs.

When Faheem released Roston Chase he brought in the night watchman Alzarri Joseph who clung to Nkrumah Bonner to lead the West Indies’ war on the fourth day.
