Pakistan v West Indies: End of the third day’s play of the first Test, Pakistan 124 runs ahead, ‘A score of more than 220 could be difficult for West Indies’

The first Test match between Pakistan and West Indies in Kingston has now entered an interesting phase where at the end of the third day Pakistan has a lead of 124 runs over the host team but half of their team has returned to the pavilion.

But the most important batsman for Pakistan, captain Babar Azam is at the crease at the moment where he has scored 54 off 139 balls, and with him on the crease is Faheem Ashraf who is batting at 12 runs and The two have so far put up a 39-run partnership.

In the third day’s play where only 72 overs were possible due to rain, Pakistan got off to a great start and bowled out the West Indies for 251 runs with just two runs to spare.

This meant that the hosts took a 36-run lead and Pakistan had a good chance to bat hard in the second innings after failing in their first innings.

But it was the Pakistani team that lived up to expectations. Once again, Imran Butt could not stay on the crease and continued his failures and returned to the pavilion in the third over without a run.

After that Azhar Ali and Abid Ali formed a partnership of 55 runs, it seemed that they could play long innings, but in just four overs, West Indies got three more wickets for Pakistan with the help of very well-bowled bowling.

Azhar Ali was the first to be dismissed at 56. He could not defend his wickets off Kemar Roach for 23 and was bowled.

After adding just nine runs, Abid Ali was bowled out for 34 by Jaden Sales and after four balls in the same over, Fawad Alam was bowled out for zero, a big blow to Pakistan.

It seemed that a loss of four wickets at 65 and a very short lead and excellent bowling of the host team would put a lot of pressure on Pakistan but on this occasion captain, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan supported Pakistan’s sinking newcomer.

The duo batted confidently for 20 overs and did not let the swing in the pitch dominate them and put on a 56-run partnership.

But the show may have been lucky that when it seemed that the first cut in West Indian bowling was not going away, then two and a half hours of play was lost due to rain and the flow of Pakistani batsmen was broken.

As a result, when the game finally resumed, Mohammad Rizwan was dismissed for 30 in Jason Holder‘s first over.

Rain is also expected in Jamaica on the fourth day of the match and it may not be possible to play all day again but considering the situation of the wicket and the scoreboard, it seems that this match will be fruitful despite the limited time.

But the name of the game will depend on the performance of Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam and Fahim Ashraf.
