Kraigg Brathwaite and Jermaine Blackwood in the middle with Pakistan still 136 in front
Lunch West Indies 81 for 3 (Brathwaite 35*, Blackwood 14*, Abbas 2-27) vs Pakistan 217
Shaheen Afridi let his high standards dip somewhat, beginning with two leg-side deliveries that trickled away for four leg-byes each. It settled the West Indian nerves, and once Chase drove Abbas straight down the ground, the runs off the bat became more frequent. Before long, they had brought up a half-century stand.
But with Brathwaite a stoic, immovable presence at the other end, West Indies have rebuilt impressively from last evening’s chaos, and have momentum on their side at lunch.
