Pakistan were 153 for six in their second innings — needing a further 66 for victory — at lunch on the fourth day of the opening Test against West Indies on Sunday at the Guyana National Stadium. With just four wickets in hand, the match is poised for an interesting finish.

Earlier on Saturday, Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq rescued Pakistan from a perilous 2-3 to be 80-3 at stumps on the third day of the first Test against the West Indies as the tourists chased down a 219-run winning target.

Shafiq led the way with 40 not out and Misbah scored an unbeaten 34 before bad light stopped play.

This followed a dramatic top-order batting collapse that left the visitors wobbling in the third over.

Misbah and Shafiq added 78 for the fourth wicket to deflate the Windies and put the visitors’ victory bid back on track.

The unnerving start to Pakistan’s chase overshadowed career-best bowling from Saeed Ajmal that undermined the hosts, and led to their dismissal for a modest 152 in their second innings just before tea.

Ajmal finished with six for 42 from 23.5 overs for match figures of 11 for 111.
