West Indies defied Pakistan's victory bid with Darren Bravo playing another resolute knock on the fifth and final day of the first day-night Test in Dubai on Monday.

At tea, Bravo was unbeaten on 46 and with him Roston Chase on 21, having added 38 for the fifth wicket stand to thwart Pakistan's spin-cum pace attack on a weary Dubai stadium pitch.

Bravo, who had made 87 in West Indies first innings total of 357, has so far hit three boundaries and a six and has been the main hurdle between Pakistan and a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

West Indies still need another 192 runs with 6 wickets at hand for an unlikely victory.

West Indies were in trouble right from the start when they resumed at 95-2 as Mohammad Amir had Marlon Samuels caught behind for four with the first ball of the day.

Jermaine Blackwood, who scored 15 runs helped Bravo took the total to 116 when left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz trapped him leg-before, a decision Pakistan only got on referral.

Pakistan did not get what was expected from leg-spinner Yasir Shah as he bowled faster rather than giving flight to the ball.

Shah, who took 5-121 in the first innings, has yet to take a wicket in the innings.
