Misbah-ul-Haq warmed-up for the first Test against West Indies with an undefeated hundred for Pakistan in their tour match against Guyana at Bourda Oval here.

The Pakistan captain was undefeated on 101, when his side declared on 330 for seven in their first innings on the opening day of the two-day match.

Guyana -- with veteran West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul in the line-up -- reached 25 without loss in reply when bad light stopped play.

Misbah struck seven fours and four sixes from 132 balls in just over three hours at the crease, reaching his milestone with a six to prompt the Pakistani declaration.

The 36-year-old Misbah led a solid batting effort from the visitors, which also featured 57 from Azhar Ali, 52 from Mohammad Hafeez, the Man-of-the-Series in the preceding five One-day Internationals, and 40 not out from Umar Gul.
