Shanon Gabriel Shines, As West Indies Beat Pakistan By 106 Runs

Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel played a starring role as West Indies' seam attack dramatically skittled Pakistan for 81 to claim a series-levelling win in the second Test in Barbados.

The visitors[Pakistan] appeared likely to open up an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game series when they limited the Caribbeans to 268 all out to leave a fourth-innings target of 188.

However, the home side' seamer sensationally exploited a pitch offering variation in bounce, initially reducing Pakistan to 36-7 and sealing win by 106 runs after a brief fightback from batsman Sarfraz Ahmed (23) and 3(20).

The 29-year-old pacer Gabriel finished with stunning figures of 5-11 from 11 overs, while fellow quicks pace bowler Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph also impressed en route to 3-23 and 2-42 respectively.

Next week's final Test in Dominica will now decide the result of the series.
