Overall highest Total at Dominica is by the hosts West Indies who scored 381/8d vs Zimbabwe in 2013 in the second Innings.
Australia who scored 328 as a previous best at this ground in the first innings , managed to won that test match by 75 runs. 376 is considerably a tough target to be matched and Pakistan have slightly an upper hand upon West Indies considering 376.
We have had 88.3 overs in which 221 runs have been scored throughout the second day’s play. Yasir Shah may have possibly given us a glimpse of things to come in his short spell, finding turn and bounce. How he bowls on the third day, and just as importantly, how West Indies negotiate him, would probably determine which direction this match takes from here.
Second day of Dominica Test , featuring Azhar Ali’s 14th Test century, a fifty that had two sides to it from what could possibly be the final Test innings from Misbah-ul-Haq. Misbah Ul Haq also received guard of honour from Holder & Company.
Sarfraz Ahmed showed the future of Pakistan’s batting, after the departure of Misbah and Younis, is in safe hands with a fifty of class while Roston Chase continued to prove his utility to this West Indies side with a four-wicket haul.
Pakistan played 146.3 overs to score 376 including 703 dot balls. West Indies did the similar job in reply to Pakistan innings, In 11 overs they only managed to score 14 runs including 57 dot balls.
This is all we have from today. We will have another early start tomorrow, by half an hour to recover the overs lost on day-1, Till Then Goodbye.
