Windies slump on day three

West Indies now lead by 162 runs and will want to add at least another 40 runs to give their bowlers a chance, although a difficult batting track may have more surprises in store.

After resuming on 34-2, West Indies lost nightwatchman Kemar Roach, lbw to Ajmal, with the sixth ball of the day and wasted a review appeal by questioning the verdict.

The in-form Lendl Simmons then went for 21, caught by Azhar Ali at short leg of a rising delivery from Wahab Riaz.  The hope of the crowd was that Guyanese pair Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shivnarine Chanderpaul would provide some backbone to the innings but Sarwan gloved a sharply rising delivery from Ajmal to square leg.
