Pakistan scent victory

6:16 pm on 24 May 2011

Centuries from Taufeeq Umar and Misbah-ul-Haq followed by purposeful bowling led by Abdur Rehman have Pakistan on the verge of victory over West Indies in the second cricket Test at Saint Kitts and Nevis.

West Indies will start the final day on 130 for six, still needing 297 runs after Pakistan's second innings ended on 377 for six.

The hosts had needed only a draw to take the series after winning the first test in Guyana by 40 runs.
