Pakistan v West Indies, 2nd Test, Abu Dhabi, day 5

Yasir six-for seals series win for Pakistan

Abu Dhabi: Pakistan beat West Indies by 133 runs in the second Test on the fifth and final day in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Set a mammoth 456-run target, West Indies were bowled out for 322 in their second innings with leg-spinner Yasir Shah taking 6-124 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Jermaine Blackwood top scored with 95 while Shai Hope made 41. Leg-spinner Yasir Shah deprived West Indian batsman Jermaine Blackwood of a fighting hundred by just five runs.

Shah, who has figures of 6-124 for his eighth five-wicket haul, and second ten wicket haul in a Test match. His first came at Lord's earlier this year.

Blackwood defied Pakistan's spin-cum-pace attack in the first session by adding 63 for the fifth wicket with Roston Chase (20) and another 57 with Hope for the sixth to counter a weary fifth day pitch.

When it seemed Blackwood would complete his second Test hundred, Shah produced a beautiful delivery which kept straight and hit the batsman's pad, dislodging the stumps.

Blackwood hit 11 boundaries during his enterprising 127-ball stay.

Shah then trapped Jason Holder leg before for 16 to complete his five-wicket haul, the second in the series.

Resuming at 171-4 West Indian pair Blackwood and Chase batted without any problems for the first nine overs but in the tenth of the day Shah produced a sharp turning ball which took the edge off Chase's bat to wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed for an easy catch.

Pakistan took the second new ball with the score on 223-5 but Blackwood hit two boundaries in Sohail Khan's first over.

Pakistan won the first Test -- a day-night game - by 56 runs in Dubai.

The third and final Test will be played in Sharjah from October 30.
