West Indies quicks keep Pakistan's batsmen in check

AP , MULTAN, PAKISTAN

West Indies fast bowlers Jerome Taylor and Corey Collymore hit back with the new ball yesterday and kept Pakistan's run-scoring in check on the second day of the second cricket Test.

Despite some shoddy fielding that saw the West Indies drop a couple of catches in the slips, Pakistan lost six wickets -- five to Taylor and Collymore -- in the session and was bowled out for 357 in the last over before lunch.

Taylor (5-91) grabbed his second five-wicket haul in test matches while Collymore (2-67) bowled a marathon spell of 15 overs as Pakistan could add only 94 runs with the second new ball.

All-rounder Abdul Razzaq, who came in to bat in the third over of the day, struggled for 92 deliveries in scoring unbeaten 16 before No. 11 batsman Danish Kaneria was run out without scoring.
