When Pakistan found themselves 2-3 after 3.5 overs, losing the wickets of Abid Ali, Azhar Ali and Imran Butt, one would have been forgiven for thinking that the West Indies were already on course for a second victory of the series, before the game had really got going. But study that Pakistan batting order and it seems clear that it only really begins in earnest when the skipper Babar Azam walks to the crease. That was on full display in Kingston as Babar and Fawad Alam allowed the visitors to recover serenely over the morning and afternoon sessions. Babar, bringing up his fifty, played some trademark shots through the cover region.
