Pakistan poised for historic win after Abbas five: 3rd Test, Day 4 (Dominica)

Rookie paceman Mohammad Abbas picked up his maiden five-for to hand Pakistan a 129-run lead and in the hunt for a first ever series win in the West Indies.

Abbas took 5-46 to decimate the West Indies as the home team could only add 29 runs to their overnight score, falling apart for 247 runs.

Retiring veterans Younis Khan and captain Misbah-ul Haq failed to make an impact in their farewell international innings but Pakistan were poised to press for a series-clinching as they declared at 174-8.

West Indies 7 for 1 (Brathwaite 3*, Powell 4, Yasir 1-2) and 249 (Chase 69, Abbas 5-46) need another 297 runs to beat Pakistan 376 and 174 for 8 dec (Yasir 38, Joseph 3-53).
