West Indies lead Pakistan by 183 with 1 wicket, 1 day left

Deprived of the landmark when stranded on 99 not out in the first innings of the first Test in Jamaica, the Pakistan captain appeared destined to accomplish the feat on this occasion, only to be dismissed in a freaky manner, triggering a mini collapse in which three wickets fell for 13 runs just before tea.

Brathwaite edged one from leg-spinner Yasir Shah and was brilliantly caught at slip by Younis Khan for 43 off 111 balls with four fours.

West Indies have made it hard work for themselves.

But five wickets before lunch left the tourists 35/5 and contemplating a huge defeat.

Earlier, Pakistan scored 393 in reply to the hosts' first-innings total of 312. Without a score of note in the series, Brathwaite appeared focused on notching a big one in an innings which lasted 111 deliveries in almost 2-1/2 hours at the crease and included four boundaries.

The deciding third test starts on Wednesday. West Indies got off to a awful start, having added only one run to their overnight score when Shimron Hetmyer, who had looked convincing on the third evening, was dismissed by Mohammad Amir.

On a deteriorating pitch, Pakistan's final target may still be a challenging one as they seek the historic win which would also give them a first-ever Test series triumph in the Caribbean. Fresh from a century in the first innings, Roston Chase proved an able partner to Hope for the rest of the morning and then deep into the afternoon session, their fourth-wicket stand producing 58 invaluable runs when Chase was deceived by a flighted Shah delivery to be caught-and-bowled for 23.

Resuming the day at 40/1, middle order batsman Shai Hope raised the hopes, scoring a gritty 90 off 209 balls before Shah triggered the collapse to return with figures of 6/90.

Hope was caught high at cover by Azhar Ali as West Indies went from 235-4 to 236-7 after tea at Kensington Oval.
