ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) West Indies faltered against Pakistan's spin and reverse swing before being bowled out for 224 at tea on the third day of the second test on Sunday.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq didn't enforce the follow-on for the second successive time in the series and Pakistan will bat again with a massive lead of 228 runs.

Pakistan didn't opt for the follow-on in the first day-night test at Dubai despite holding a 222-run lead before eventually winning the match by 56 runs.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah grabbed 4-86, claiming three wickets with the second new ball as West Indies innings never got any sort of momentum after resuming at 106-4.

Roston Chase (22) and nightwatchman Devendra Bishoo (20) both played stubborn knocks as Shah constantly challenged them with his teasing line and length.

Chase toiled hard for two hours and faced 80 deliveries before Shah struck with his first delivery with the second new ball when Asad Shafiq plucked a reflex catch at short gully.

Shah then clean bowled Shai Hope in his next over and could have also got Holder out for 7 but Mohammad Nawaz missed a catch at wide mid off.

Holder added 27 runs for the 10th wicket before Shah wrapped up the innings by having Shannon Garbriel caught in the deep just before tea.

Earlier, Bishoo hung in for 1.5 hours after Rahat Ali (3-45) had Jermaine Blackwood caught behind inside the first hour.

Sohail Khan (2-35) also probed West Indies with some good reverse swing and uprooted the off stumps of Bishoo and Miguel Cummins as West Indies could add only 118 runs in the two sessions.
