    337 (Brathwaite 142*, Chase 50, Wahab 5-88) by 31 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball
    detailsFor the first time on a long, fruitless tour of the UAE, West Indies
    found themselves ahead in a game, after a stellar century and a spirited bowling
    effort on the third day in Sharjah. Kraigg Brathwaites unbeaten 142 off 318
    balls - he carried his bat - steered West Indies to a hard-earned lead of 56 in
    the first innings, before Jason Holder made three breakthroughs in a lively
    spell after tea.Pakistan lost four wickets before erasing the deficit, but Azhar
    Ali and Sarfraz Ahmed stabilised the innings with an unbroken 39-run partnership
    for the fifth wicket and took Pakistan to 87 for 4 by stumps.The inroads into
    Pakistan came via a short-ball barrage. Holder bowled a fast bouncer to Sami
    Aslam that the batsman could only top edge to fine leg. Another well-directed
    bouncer got big on Asad Shafiq and had him fending to Darren Bravo at gully.
    Then Younis Khan got a faint tickle on a leg-side delivery to give Holder his
    third. When Misbah-ul-Haq pulled offspinner Roston Chase straight to Devendra
    Bishoo at deep-backward square leg, Pakistan had lost four wickets for 11 runs
    to slip to 48 for 4.It could have been even better for West Indies. With
    Pakistans score at 71, Shannon Gabriel bowled a nasty, steep bouncer at Sarfraz,
    batting on 9, who fended it to Bravo at slip. But Gabriel had overstepped - for
    the 26th time in the series - by a big margin and Sarfraz survived. He moved on
    to 19 by stumps, while Azhar had 45. But with Pakistans lead still only 31, they
    were a fair distance from safety and heavily dependent on Azhar and Sarfraz to
    get them there. West Indies, for their part, had worked their way into a good
    position to push for their first win in 14 Tests.The foundation had been laid by
    Brathwaite, who became the fifth West Indies batsman to carry his bat. He was a
    paragon of patience and concentration for the majority of his marathon knock and
    his temperament was matched by an ability to work ones and twos to all corners
    of the ground. Though all but one of his 11 fours came behind the wicket, owing
    to the slow outfield, he scored evenly all around the field thanks to his
    ability to manoeuvre the ball into gaps.Resuming on 95 on the third morning,
    Brathwaite made that 99 with the first ball of the day, helping a slightly wide
    delivery from Mohammad Amir between gully and point. Brathwaite worked the fifth
    ball for a two through midwicket to bring up his fifth Test century. His
    overnight batting partner was Holder, who started promisingly, looking solid in
    defence and playing a couple of sumptuous drives for four. The first, off
    left-armer Wahab Riaz, was a straight drive to a delivery angled into him from
    around the wicket. He kept his balance perfectly and timed the ball sweetly,
    beating mid-on to his left. The second, off Amir, was a gorgeous drive through
    the extra-cover region to a ball that was angled across him.But Holders
    dismissal came immediately after that second boundary. Amir, also a left-armer,
    changed the angle by going around the wicket to attack the stumps. Holder
    misjudged the line, shouldered arms and had his off stump rattled.Left-arm
    spinner Mohammad Nawaz, introduced in the 96th over for just his fifth over of
    the match, created the next two chances - in the space of four balls. First, he
    got Brathwaite to attempt a cut at one that was too straight. The ball bounced
    more than Brathwaite had expected and he got a thin edge to wicketkeeper
    Sarfraz, who fumbled it onto the grille of his helmet before it fell to ground.
    Then, off the last ball of the over, Bishoo swept onto his pad to Azhar at short
    leg, but he, too, fumbled it onto the grille of his helmet before taking the
    catch. While Michael Gough gave it out on the field, Bishoo reviewed and third
    umpire Richard Illingworth spotted the infraction.By that time, West Indies had
    taken the lead, and Brathwaite and Bishoo continued to build an eighth-wicket
    partnership that steadily extended it. Bishoo was more than adequate in the
    pairs 60-run stand, mirroring some of the grit that Brathwaite had shown in
    spades. But he was the first to depart after lunch, nicking behind off Wahab.
    Wahab then accounted for Alzarri Joseph and Gabriel to wrap up the West Indies
    innings and claim his second five-wicket haul in Tests.That still left West
    Indies with a handy first-innings lead, and it looked handier still after
    Holders post-tea exploits. Cheap

    . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey
    Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of
    focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his

    of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the
    players himself.
