With all the drama around the climax of the first Test, Kemar Roach, Kraigg Brathwaite and Jayden Seales took the plaudits, but Jermaine Blackwood's role ended up being slightly underrated. On a treacherously difficult surface for batting, he came in on both occasions with his side in trouble, bravely looking to go after the bowlers. It translated into key partnerships, taking the pressure off his captain in the first innings by lifting the run rate. But it was the second innings where his contributions really shone, batting at perhaps the hardest time of the game. Shaheen Afridi was on fire and had just removed three top-order batters. Just before lunch, Blackwood lofted him for two leg-side fours, halting Pakistan's momentum in a priceless 55-run knock. His role might have been overshadowed, but both sides recognise his quality, and importance to this side.

So Powell stays. Can he capitalize on this opportunity? The capacity is lurking somewhere there. Joseph adds to the hunting pack.

A recovery of sorts for Pakistan as they are 28/3

That makes sense though as their batting doesnt start until Babar come in. The top three are walking wickets.

West Indies will have to work harder now

gets a thick edge but it falls short of third slip and then goes away further to beat the fielder for four and bring up the 50 stand. Holder is using the angle nicely, makes Fawad play outside off with a poke and even gets the edge, but it doesn't carry

That's lunch and even though it was West Indies' session after they opted to bowl, Pakistan will be pretty happy with the fifty stand Babar and Fawad have put together. From 2 for 3, any team will take 62 for 3 at the end of the session. It was Roach and Seales yet again who troubled an already feeble-looking Pakistan top order, before Babar cracked four fours to race past 20 while Fawad patiently faced the pace attack and the two eventually got more comfortable. The pitch does have movement and bounce, there are a few edges flying around so a wicket is always around the corner.

Good fightback by Babar and Fawad with a 50 run partnership

Somewhat justifying Jeff Dujon's statement that batting first would be a good choice as well.

It's still raining and it has only got a bit heavier.
'Not looking good at all', says Samuel Badree on air.
He also informs that Fawad is fit and can bat for Pakistan at the fall of the next wicket.
But as of now the drizzle is quite heavy. We have had lightning, a thunderstorm,
some heavy squall and ash grey clouds hovering over.
Not looking good at all, but the drainage at this ground is good.
Fingers crossed, we'll have some cricket today
