Sharjah — Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo and fast bowler Shannon Gabriel shared seven wickets and restricted Pakistan to 255-8 on the first day of the third and final Test on Sunday.

Gabriel (3-58) provided West Indies with a dream start with two wickets off the first four deliveries of the match and Bishoo (4-74) grabbed four in the last session before the day's play was called off seven overs early because of bad light.

Left-handed opener Sami Aslam batted for two sessions to top score with 74 before he fell to Bishoo in the first over after tea.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq (53), who won his third successive toss and opted to bat, Younis Khan (51) and Sarfraz Ahmed (51) also scored half centuries but couldn't convert their solid starts into big scores as Pakistan lost their last four wickets for 18 runs.

Pakistan have already clinched the series with victories at Dubai and Abu Dhabi and brought back Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir in place of Rahat Ali and Sohail Khan.

Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich returned for West Indies after missing the second Test due to injury and replaced Shai Hope while 19-year-old fast bowler Alzarri Joseph got his first test on tour in place of Miguel Cummins.
