West Indies 14-0 at stumps, 362 behind Pakistan in 3rd test

ROSEAU, Dominica (AP) " West Indies played cautiously to reach 14-0 at stumps on day 2, still 362 runs behind Pakistan's first-innings total of 376 in the decisive third test on Thursday.

Kieran Powell was 9 not out and Kraigg Brathwaite undefeated on 5 at Windsor Park.

West Indies faced 11 overs in the final session after Pakistan had resumed on 169-2 overnight and made slow progress throughout the day.

Azhar Ali top-scored for Pakistan with 127 and was bowled by Roston Chase after reaching his 14th test century. He struck eight boundaries and two sixes in his 334-ball knock. Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq was caught behind off Chase for 59 in his 39th test half-century after scoring just eight runs from his first 60 balls. Sarfraz Ahmed was out for 51 in the evening session.

Chase finished on 4-103 and Jason Holder 3-71.

Slow scoring by both teams was the theme of the day. Pakistan got 84 runs for the loss of three wickets in the afternoon session off 27.2 overs, reaching 311-6 at tea.

Earlier, Pakistan went to lunch on 227-3 after resuming on 169-2 overnight, adding only 58 runs in 30 overs for the loss of Younis Khan's wicket.

The 39-year-old Younis, who was trapped leg before wicket by Jason Holder in the ninth over of the day for 18, and the 42-year-old Misbah are both retiring from international cricket at the end of the match.

As the next man in, Misbah was given a guard of honor by the West Indies players - a mark of respect that had also been accorded to Younis on Wednesday.

Pakistan is chasing its first-ever test series win in the Caribbean. The three-match series is level at 1-1 after West Indies recovered from a seven-wicket loss in the first test to win the second by 106 runs.
