FADING LIGHT helped West Indies to victory on a better scoring rate in the second one-day cricket international against Pakistan at Gujranwala.

The match was halted in deepening gloom which coincidedf with West Indian captain Viv Richards lead- ing his team off. This prompted sections of the 25,000 crowd to throw bottles on to the pitch.
Pakistan were then 155 for six off 43.5 overs in reply to the West Indies' total of 196 for seven from 50 overs.

Under the regulations govern- ing the series, West Indies discarded the seven maidens in their innings which meant their total for 43 overs was still 196, a ruling which upset the crowd who had begun to sense victory.

Unbroken stand

Pakistan's acting captain Javed Miandad and Salim Yousaf remained unbeaten on 74 and 23 after sharing an unbroken seventh-wicket stand of 80.

Earlier, west Indies looked to be heading for another defeat with their score at 79 for six.

Young left-arm bowler Saleem Jaffar took over from Abdul Qadir and Imran Khan, the bowlers who inflicted last week's humiliating Test defeat on Richard's team in Faisalabad, as scourge of the touring side.

With his medium pace, Saleem Jaffar removed openers Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes and had Gus Logie leg before in the space of 10 balls. At 22 for three, west Indies were facing the spectre of Faisalabad, where they were bowled out for their lowest Test score of 53.

Richards started to revive the innings with a 45-run partnership with Richie Richardson, but was caught in the covers for 17 trying to drive Qadir's leg spin.

Richardson and Roger Harper soon followed, lbw to Manzoor Elahi and Abdul Qadir respectively, before Malcolm Marshall and Jeff Dujon hit out. The first 40 overs had yielded 112 runs, the next five produced 50.

Marshall's 66, off the same number of balls, included seven fours. Dujon hit five fours and two sixes.

The seventh-wicket stand of 115 gave the Wst Indies attack something to bowl against, and Marshall and fellow paceman' Winston Benjamin responded by taking five wickets between them. But Javed Miandad looked in firm control when the end came.
