View dismissal CH Gayle* c Shahid Afridi b Umar Gul 113 128 106 11 5 106.60

15.1 bowled 'im!! That was pitched back of a length on middle and off, Butt tries to run it down to third man, gets an inside edge onto the stumps. That was inevitable. He ended up staying there longer than he should have., The Windies finally make a breakthrough. Butt walks back for an unconvincing 24. Baker gets his first ODI wicket. 64/1

39.5 on a good length outside off, Younis tries to loft that one over long on, got the elevation but not the distance, went really high, Chattergoon at mid off took a couple of steps back and took a well judged catch.

View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq b Miller 7 9 7 0 0 100.00
32.1 bowled 'im! that was an arm ball bowled full on middle and leg, Misbah gets down on one knee to reverse-sweep that one down towards third-man, misses it completely, and the off stump is out of the ground. Too much unconventional strokeplay in his brief innings 159/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c Chanderpaul b Taylor 66 74 50 6 1 132.00
47.1 gone!! Malik goes!! What a wicket. That was bowled on a good length outside off, Malik tries to swing that one over mid wicket, but finds Shivnarine Chanderpaul stationed there exactly for that shot, right at the edge of the circle. Malik plays a brilliant hand, but did he make enough? 262/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Chanderpaul b Baker 4 8 6 0 0 66.66
41.6 what a catch!! Could that be the decisive blow!! short of a length on the off stump, Afridi pulled that one uppishly towards deep square leg, that was very well struck, but Chanderpaul runs across to his right and dives to his right just inches within the boundary ropes to take a magnificent catch! Afridi goes, and the match takes a new twist. We are heading for an exciting finish here. 224/5
