DUBAI: Pakistan beat West Indies by 56 runs in the first day-night Test on the fifth and final day in Dubai on Monday, taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
Darren Bravo defied Pakistan until the last hour of play with a fighting 116 and it needed a brilliant leaping catch by leg-spinner Yasir Shah to dismiss him after a 410-minute vigil.
Shah finished with 2-113, seven wickets in the match to dismiss West Indies for 289 in their second innings after resuming at 95-2. Mohammad Amir took 3-63.
