Day 3 Report: Pakistani batsman Fawad Alam continued an innings that started on day one and ended a century on day three of Sunday’s second cricket test against the West Indies, leading his team in a strong rain hit game to a strong position.
Fawad wasn’t out 124 when Pakistan declared their first innings at 302-9 shortly after tee. The West Indies lost the opening players Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieran Powell and Roston Chase in front of Stumpfen when they were 39-3, Nkrumah Bonner 18 failed and night watchman Alzarri Joseph scored another goal.
