Yasir Shah takes wicket of Bravo, 2nd Test

Yasir Shah on the evening of second day of the second test match got the most important wicket from the West Indian batting line. Bravo was adjourned lbw of Yasir but only after the leggy took a review. The on field call was not out.

This was a good ball but it was very badly played by the West Indian top test batter. Bravo was nor forward nor back. He was just lying in between these two position. He was playing the ball the ball with the spin, which did not happen.

The ball was bowled a bit short and fast by Yasir Shah. He made sure that this one travels a lot quicker to Bravo. The plan worked for the leggy. Bravo did not read the ball well. The moment the ball made an impact on the pads, Yasir knew this was mighty close.

He shouted for this lbw case but the umpire did not favor the Pakistani leg spinner. Yasir was certain about this one. He asked his captain to take a review immediately. Misbah went with his top bowler and the case was escalated upstairs.

The third umpire had a close look at this one. The ball pitched on the middle and off stump line and spun a bit. Not this spin was not that much to take the ball away from the stumps on the leg side. This was what made the on field umpire dubious and he gave it not out.

The ball after spinning was hitting the middle and leg stump. There was no bat involved and the third umpire over turned the original decision and gave this one out. This was a very much important break through for the home side. Bravo has played fantastically well against Pakistan in the first test. He was the danger element again but Yasir neutralized him brilliantly. Pakistan ended up taking 4 wickets at the end of play.
