ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Leg-spinner Yasir Shah took 10 wickets and led Pakistan to a series clinching 133-run victory over the West Indies on the last day of the second test on Tuesday.

The West Indies set up a massive 456-run target but were bowled out for 322 after lunch on the last day as Pakistan took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Shah grabbed 6-124 in the second innings after his 4-86 effort in the first innings bowled out West Indies for 224 and provided Pakistan a strong lead of 228 runs.

Resuming overnight at 171-4, West Indies crumbled against Shah's spin as the leg-spinner struck three times before lunch despite a 95 by Jermaine Blackwood.

The West Indies lost the first day-night test by 56 runs and the third and final test will start at Sharjah next Sunday.
