not out
    7.3 Yasir has a wicket in his first over. Pakistan manage a smile. This is a short ball, but seems like a flipper. Johnson looks to pull, but is done in by the one that slides and stays low to hit his back bad right in front 29/1
    9.5 beautiful spin bowling. After four straight legbreaks, he tosses one up around off. Bravo is playing off muscle memory and looking to close the face as he has been doing. This one is slower than the previous few deliveries, and then doesn't turn as much as Bravo expects it to. The outside edge is neatly taken by the Sarf 35/2
    19.1 is there another twist? Another failure for Samuels, who has been deceived in flight. He gives the charge and looks to loft him over long-off, but didn't get underneath the flight and ended up skewing it to Babar, who made no mistake there. 57/3
    20.6 goes through his defenses and West Indies slide further. Kept pushing him back with sheer pace and finally has his man. The back of length delivery keeps coming back in from wide of the crease, Blackwood plays across the line towards midwicket and is beaten as the ball crashes into the stumps. The angle did the trick for Wahab. Blackwood's bat came down from gully and he missed it from the inside. Dejection in the West Indies camp. 63/4
    22.4 whips that straight to midwicket. Wahab magic to the fore again and the smile in the Pakistan camp tells you the story. Incoming length ball from around the stumps, Chase trusts his instincts and looks to go over midwicket but hits it flat to Nawaz, who times his jump well to take that catch. 67/5
