Abu Dhabi: Pakistan piled up 452 runs and reduced West Indies to 106 for four to take control of the second test in Abu Dhabi on the second day on Saturday.
Captain Misbah-ul-Haq made 96 and Sarfraz Ahmed 56 to lift the hosts to an imposing first-innings total as they bid for a victory that would give them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. Younus Khan struck a century on the first day.
West Indies lost both openers lbw, Leon Johnson falling to fast bowler Rahat Ali for 12 and Darren Bravo to spinner Yasir Shah for 43.
Kraigg Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels shared a steady third-wicket partnership of 41 but both fell in quick succession shortly before the close to give Pakistan the upper hand.
Leg-spinner Yasir Shah struck Bravo on his back pad as the left-hander tried to pull a short ball but Gough turned down a vociferous appeal from Pakistan players.
Samuels was caught by Sami Aslam at slip off Rahat for 30 and two balls later Brathwaite was needlessly run out for 21 following a mix-up with his partner Devendra Bishoo.
Misbah reviewed the decision and television replays resulted in Bravo being sent on his way trapped leg-before for 43.
The very next ball Shah trapped Samuels in front of his stumps and Gough raised his finger, only for a review to grant the batsman a reprieve as replays showed he had hit the ball.
Earlier, Pakistan skipper Misbah missed out on his 11th Test century by just four runs, but Sarfraz Ahmed (56) and Mohammad Nawaz (25) added 70 for the seventh wicket to ensure Pakistan crossed the 450-mark.
Shannon Gabriel, who took a career best five for 96, had dismissed Misbah in the first session before bowling Ahmed soon after lunch.
He dismissed Zulfiqar Babar for nought to wrap up the innings.
Sohail Khan hit five boundaries before he became one of three victims for Jason Holder, who finished with 3-47.
Pakistan had resumed the day on 304-4 in the hope that Misbah and nightwatchman Shah would survive the second new ball which the West Indies took at the start of play.
Shah was fortunate to escape a leg-before review off Holder but Misbah was not so lucky as he was dismissed in the next over.
Pakistan - 452 (Younis 127, Misbah 96, Shafiq 68, Sarfraz 56, Gabriel 5-96)
West Indies - 106 for 4 (Bravo 43, Samuels 30, Rahat 2-31)
Status - West Indies trail by 346 runs
