Watch: In the pursuit of quick runs, Azhar Ali fell to a ridiculously slow delivery from part-time off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite in the second Test between Pakistan and West Indies at the Sabina Park Cricket Ground.
Having bowled West Indies out for 150 on day four, Pakistan, leading by 152 runs, looked to make a quick declaration and came out all guns blazing. The openers put on 70 in 9.3 overs before Abid Ali’s dismissal brought Azhar Ali to the crease.
Imran Butt was dismissed soon after, but Azhar still unleashed his strokes. Brathwaite, bowling the final over before tea, was reverse swept for four by Azhar Ali off a loopy off break. Next ball, the Windies skipper sent down another moon ball, this one at 37.9mph on leg stump. Attempting to sweep the ball in the air, Azhar got a top edge and was caught out at fine leg.
Watch the dismissal here:
Azhar Ali looks to sweep but top edges it right to Jermaine Blackwood who takes an easy catch.
