West Indies, resuming at 315-6, were dismissed for 357 on the fourth day of the day-night Test against Pakistan in Dubai on Sunday.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah took 5-121, becoming the second joint-fastest bowler to complete 100 wickets in all Test cricket.

England’s right-arm medium-pacer George Lohmann reached 100 Test wickets in just 16 Test matches in 1896 which still is a world record in Test cricket’s 140-year-old history.

Australia’s Charlie Turner and Clarrie Grimmett and England’s Sydney Barnes each got to the milestone in their 17th Test.

Pakistan had made 579-3 declared in their first innings but despite taking a lead of 222 they did not enforce follow-on and will bat again.

The three match series will continue in Abu Dhabi (October 21-25) and Sharjah (October 30-November 3).
