Basseterre (Saint Kitts and Nevis), May 21 : Part-time off-spinner Mohammad Hafeez continued to be a thorn in the West Indies' side, grabbing the wicket of Darren Bravo to tighten Pakistan's grip and leave the hosts wobbling on 94 for four in their first innings at tea in the second Test on Saturday.

The new ball pair of Wahab Riaz and Tanvir Ahmed had set back West Indies early, when they removed openers Lendl Simmons and Kraigg Brathwaite cheaply.

And off-spinner Saeed Ajmal snared the prized scalp of Ramnaresh Sarwan for 20, as the home team started their reply to Pakistan's respectable first innings total of 272 on the second day at Warner Park.

But the Pakistanis faced resistance when Bravo batted through the last hour before the break with Marlon Samuels, not out on 21, to stem the slide. AFP
