The West Indies look set for victory in the first Test against Pakistan after piling on the pressure on day three.

Set a near-impossible 573 to win in Barbados, the tourists stumbled to 47-4 before Asim Kamal (38) and Shahid Afridi (32) steadied the ship.

Earlier, Shivnarine Chanderpaul hit an unbeaten 153 - his 14th Test ton - as the West Indies made 371.

To lose, the home side would have to concede a total 155 more than ever achieved in a fourth innings chase.

Chanderpaul was happy to bat on rather than declaring.

Wavell Hinds fell to Danish Kaneria for 52 on the stroke of lunch after a fifth wicket stand of 134.

Despite four wickets in the afternoon, including Fidel Edwards for 20, Chanderpaul managed to pass 150.

Chanderpaul faced 254 deliveries in all and hit 10 fours and two sixes, including one off Kaneria to celebrate his century.

Hinds stroked six fours in his 129-ball innings as the Pakistani bowlers toiled away on a hot day.

Resuming on 168-4, the two left handers batted comfortably and sensibly on a pitch that has eased out considerably as the match has progressed.

They made Pakistan feel the absence of strike bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Muhammad Sami, who were ruled out of the tour on fitness grounds.

But the West Indies bowlers enjoyed a more productive day as the tourists were left reeling by the loss of two early wickets in their second innings.

Fidel Edwards enticed Salman Butt to give a catch to Chris Gayle before Pakistan had a run on the board before Younis Khan was run-out by Chanderpaul, also for a duck.

Yasir Hameed was third man out, edging a fine delivery from Daren Powell to wicket-keeper Courtney Browne for 16.

Bazid was the final wicket of the day when he was trapped lbw by Corey Collymore.
