Windies set Pakistan 219 victory target

3:35 pm on 15 May 2011

Pakistan has recovered from losing three early wickets to reach 80 for three at stumps on a remarkable third day of the first cricket test needing another 139 runs to beat the West Indies in Guyana.

Off-spinner Saeed Ajmal again dominated, taking six wickets, making it 11 in the game, as West Indies were bowled out for 152 in their second innings.

That total would have been even worse but for a 48 run 10th wicket partnership between Guyanese pair of Shivnarine Chanderpaul and last man Devendra Bishoo, who made 24 with Chanderpaul unbeaten on 36.
