ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) West Indies' top order stuttered against the reverse swing of Rahat Ali and spin of Yasir Shah to limp to 106-4 Saturday after Pakistan was bowled out for 452 on day two of the second test.

West Indies lost two wickets for no runs in the last two overs when left-arm seamer Rahat found the outside edge from Marlon Samuels (30). Kraigg Braithwaite was run out for 21 in a terrible mix-up with nightwatchman Devendra Bishoo.

The visitors still trail by 346 runs and, with Shah grabbing the key wicket of Darren Bravo for 43, Pakistan appears heading toward a healthy first-innings lead.

Earlier, fast bowler Shannon Gabriel took his maiden five-wicket haul with 5-96 but Pakistan's tail was unruffled on a typical slow wicket at Sheikh Zayed Stadium after the hosts resumed on 304-4.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq narrowly missed out on a century when Gabriel had him trapped leg before wicket with the second new ball, but Sarfraz Ahmed (56 off 59 balls), Sohail Khan (26) and Mohammad Nawaz (25) all made useful contributions.
