The first Test match between Pakistan and West Indies at the DSC stadium in Dubai hosted the second day-night Test match. Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq decided to bat on a flat deck and soon enough Pakistan got their fourth triple centurion in Azhar Ali. Ali and Sami Islam shared a 215-run opening stand to lay a solid foundation for their team. The top-four batsmen all scored half-centuries as Pakistan declared their innings at 579 for three.

In reply, Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo saved West Indies the blushes and helped the score past 300 runs. Yasir Shah bowled impressively for his five wickets.

In the second innings, Pakistan lived up to their 'unpredictable' reputation as Devendra Bishoo’s eight-for helped bowl them out for 123 runs. A second-innings Darren Bravo century brought the West Indies closer to the target but that wasn't enough as Pakistan won by 56 runs. Azhar Ali was selected as the Player of the Match.

In the third Test of the series, South African captain Faf du Plessis decided to bat first. He scored a brilliant unbeaten century (118 runs off 164 balls) to put the Proteas in a respectable position while other batsmen were troubled by the Aussie bowlers. Josh Hazlewood was the most successful bowler with four wickets.

A majestic 145-run knock from Usman Khawaja and important contributions from Steve Smith, Peter Handscomb, and Mitchell Starc (all scoring fifties) helped the host nation reach 383 runs.

A Stephen Cook century in the second innings couldn’t save the Proteas as they were bowled out for just 250 runs. Starc and Nathan Lyon bowled well in tandem to share seven wickets and hand an easy target of 127 runs to the Australian batsman, which they chased down with seven wickets to spare. Khawaja was named the Player of the Match.
