Pakistan’s plan for day 4 of day-night Test match

Shukriya Pakistan

DUBAI: The first ever day-night Test match in Asia will enter the fourth day today with West Indies still trailing Pakistan by 264 runs in the first innings with just 4 wickets remaining.

Pakistan will look to pick up the remaining four wickets, ideally before the end of first session, in order to give themselves enough time to score few quick runs in the second innings before making the visitors bat again.

It is expected that Misbah will begin with Wahab Riaz and Yasir Shah on day 4 considering that they were Pakistan’s best bowlers on day 3. Yasir Shah needs three more wickets to become the second quickest bowler to pick up 100 wickets in Test matches.

On the third day Pakistan removed Darren Bravo towards the end of the day’s play after a dodged batting display from the left handed batsman. Bravo defied a potent bowling attack to score 87 during a 402-minute stay at the crease while Samuels made 76 as the West Indies closed on 315-6.

Shane Dowrich who was unbeaten on 27 with skipper Jason Holder on 10 will resume play on day 4.
