Pakistan's Amir gets five-wicket haul against West Indies


(Reuters) - Pakistan left-arm paceman Mohammad Amir claimed his first five-wicket haul since returning from a five-year ban on a rain-shortened second day of the first test against West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica on Saturday.

Only 11.3 overs were bowled, with the home team advancing to 278 for nine wickets at a soggy Sabina Park.

Amir claimed the two wickets to fall, dismissing tail-enders Devendra Bishoo for 28 and Alzarri Joseph for a duck while captain Jason Holder remained unbeaten on 55 at stumps.

Amir (5-41) returned to the Pakistan test team last year after serving a five-year ban for spot-fixing.
