West Indies pulled off a stunning victory over Pakistan in the 2nd Test Match at Bridgetown, Barbados
West Indies pace trio Gabriel, Joseph and Holder went through the Pakistan batting order and wrapped them for 81 runs. Gabriel’s impressive 5 wicket haul produced a memorable victory for West Indies in the second test at Kensington oval, Barbados.
West Indies began day 5 with the lead of 183 runs and just added four runs to the over night score of 264 and were bowled out for 268. Chasing 188 runs to win the second test, the Pakistan batsmen were outplayed by the West Indies bowlers. Gabriel and Joseph got rid of the top order. Later Holder joined the party to dismantle the middle and lower order. Pakistan’s 81 runs in the second innings equalled the lowest total in an innings at Kensington oval which was set by India in 1997.
Shanon Gabriel earned the Man of the Match award for his figures of 5 for 11. The series is now levelled at 1-1, with the final test to be played in Dominica.
