The target was 168 to win. Not a seemingly big goal. But the West Indies had to lose 9 wickets to cross the target. In the end, the Caribbeans won the Kingston Test against Pakistan by 1 wicket.
Babar Azam and Fahim Ashraf put on 47 runs off 170 balls. The pair was indicating something fairly good. But at the beginning of the fourth day, Pakistan lost wickets quickly and fell into misery. At the end of the third day, the collection was 160 for 5 wickets and at the beginning of the fourth day, Pakistan became 180 for 8 wickets.
At the beginning of the day, Fahim was caught behind the wicket by Kemar Roach. Then Babar Azam was caught by Kyle Myers for 54 runs, Jason Holder. The next time is only for Jayden Sills. He took the last three wickets of Pakistan’s innings (Yasir Shah, Hasan Ali and Shaheen Shah Afridi). Abid Ali and Fawad Alam also took the sills the day before.
Seals also set a record with 5 wickets. He took 5 wickets as the youngest bowler in the history of Caribbean cricket. At the age of 19 years and 340 days, he broke Alf Valentine’s record by averaging this feat. Pakistan were bowled out for 203 by West Indies. West Indies, who were leading by 167 runs, got the target of 168 runs.
Pakistan’s bowling attack is not to be missed. Pakistan has done a great job with that weapon. West Indies lost 3 wickets before the tea break. Shaheen Afridi returns Kieron Powell, Craig Brafet and Encruma Bonner.
After that, however, Jermaine Blackwood and Roston Chase made a pair of 68 runs. Fahim Ashraf broke the tie. He returned the chase. Fahim also returned Kyle Myers. Blackwood was out for 55 runs. Jason Holder also failed to show hope to the West Indies. He was dismissed for 16 off Hasan Ali. West Indies, who lost 7 wickets for 114 runs, then looked at Joshua da Silva. But he could not make more than 13 runs. When Dr Silva was out, the West Indies collected 142 for 8.
Jomel Warrickan then did 6. He is also a victim of Shaheen Afridi. ‘Bowler’ Kemar Roach took the team to the brink of victory. He made 30 runs from 52 balls. Roach did the last fight with Siles. However, if Hasan Ali could have caught this Roach catch, then it would have been towards Pakistan. That did not happen. Roach won the toss and elected to bat.
