Yasir six-for leads Pakistan’s comeback on day 4

Yasir Shah, Tests

A remarkable six-wicket haul from Yasir Shah has brought Pakistan back into the contest on day 4 of the second Test against West Indies at the Kensington Oval on Wednesday ( May 3). The leg-spinner returned figures of 6-90 to once again put Pakistan in control of what has been a riveting game so far.

At one stage, the hosts had a lead of over 150 with six wickets still intact. But a chaotic five minutes’ period late in the day saw West Indies lose their advantage, as they lost three of their wickets in less than nine deliveries for only one run.

Shai hope scored a career-best 90, while Brathwaite made a contribution of 43.

At stumps, West Indies were situated at 264 for 9, with their lead stretching to just over 180 runs.
