Pakistan showed a hugely positive outlook on day four of this second Test with the West Indies at Sabina Park, having already declared during their first innings on 302-9 with an eye towards forcing a result in a rain-affected fixture. It was during the opening partnership of their second innings, though, where they really began to put the foot down, racing to 70-0 off just 9.2 overs thanks to 30 off 35 balls from Imran Butt and 29 off 22 from Abid Ali. It was Alzarri Joseph, who has worked extremely hard for his side throughout this Test match, who made the breakthrough. The seamer eventually took the figures of 2-24 off 4.2 overs as the visitors declared on 176-6.
He’s toiled and toiled and finally got his reward.
