Abu Dhabi (AFP) –


Pakistan, who won the toss and decided to bat, were 95-2 at lunch on the opening day of the second Test against West Indies in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

Asad Shafiq (54) and Younis Khan (29) were at the crease after West Indies dismissed openers Azhar Ali (nought) and Sami Aslam (six) on a flat Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch.

Pakistan, who lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test in Dubai by 56 runs, brought in Younis, Zulfiqar Babar and Rahat Ali in three changes to the first Test line-up.

They left out Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir (both rested) and Babar Azam.

West Indies were forced to leave out unfit wicket-keeper batsman Shane Dowrich, bringing in Shai Hope.

The third and final Test starts in Sharjah from October 30.
