Pakistan dominates Test against WI


Observer Report

Dubai—Opener Azhar Ali became the first batsman to record a century in a day-night Test off a pink ball as he helped Pakistan dominate West Indies in Dubai on Thursday. Ali’s unbeaten 146 guided Pakistan to 279-1 at close on the opening day of the first Test — just the second day-night match in Test cricket’s 140-year-old history — after Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and opted to bat on a flat Dubai stadium pitch. Asad Shafiq was the other not out batsman with 33.
