Bishoo is congratulated after taking four wickets on his Test debut

Devendra Bishoo claimed 4-68 on his Test debut as West Indies opened up a 100-run lead over Pakistan on the second day of the first Test in Guyana.

The leg-spinner trapped Misbah-ul-Haq leg before to claim his first Test wicket and then snared Asad Shafiq as Pakistan crumbled from 57-1 to 66-5.

Bishoo had Umar Akmal caught by Carlton Baugh to break a seventh-wicket stand of 50 as Pakistan ended 160 all out.

The Windies built on a first innings lead of 66, reaching 34-2 at close.

The home side had started the second day on 209-9 and Bishoo helped take the total to 226 with an unbeaten 15 before Saeed Ajmal completed career-best figures of 5-69 with the wicket of Kemar Roach.

However, Bishoo and Ravi Rampaul bowled the Windies into a first innings lead on a helpful pitch for the bowlers.

Rampaul rattled the stumps of Mohammad Hafeez to leave Pakistan 5-1 before Taufeeq Umar and Azhar Ali steadied the innings with a stand of 52.

Darren Sammy removed Taufeeq (19) leg before and then removed the off stump of Azhar, who hit five boundaries in his 34 but played no stroke to an inswinger.

Bishoo then bamboozled the middle order before Rampaul returned to remove the tail.

However, any thoughts of a home victory were quickly put to one side as Devon Smith and Darren Bravo became the 12th and 13th wickets to fall on an intriguing day.
