The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

SKIP­PER Mis­bah-ul-Haq showed dis­ap­point­ment over the downfall of on­cemighty West Indies af­ter Pak­istan achieved a se­ries-clinch­ing win in the sec­ond Test in Abu Dhabi yes­ter­day.

Pak­istan thumped West Indies by 133 runs on the fifth and fi­nal day to take an unas­sail­able 2-0 lead in the three-match se­ries.

The de­feat is West Indies’ 19th in their last 29 Tests since Novem­ber 2013, hav­ing won only four and drawn the re­main­ing six.

“That’s bit dis­ap­point­ing and if you see their strength in in­ter­na­tional cricket they were al­ways a force but now they are hav­ing a downfall,” said Mis­bah af­ter Pak­istan’s vic­tory in Abu Dhabi.

“They are a young side with some play­ers per­form­ing well in bits and pieces at the mo­ment.

“They will be­come a good side but at the mo­ment they are lack­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ev­ery­one wants to see a strong West Indies side like we had in the past. Right now it’s re­ally a big dis­ap­point­ing fac­tor for all of their fans.”

West Indies now face the prospect of a white­wash in the Tests, with the third and fi­nal match start­ing in Shar­jah from Sun­day.
