West Indies 2/0   CH Gayle 2* (2b)

3.1

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, full, angling in towards off, defended from the crease

3.2

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, swings and misses. Extra bounce, and also came back in. Short of a length, just outside off, seams back in, and Gayle is caught neither forward nor back. Beaten

3.3

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, this one swings away at 142ks, left alone outside off

3.4

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, short of a length, on off, defended to mid-off

3.5

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, huge appeal after a huge inside edge. It's a good delivery, though, seaming in after the awayswinger, but he has got a thick inside edge. Junaid, though, is a serial appealer, and is not likely to die wondering

3.6

Junaid Khan to Gayle, FOUR, dug in short, only hip high, and Gayle smashes this with the front leg in the air. It races away for four through square leg

West Indies 15/1   CH Gayle 6* (8b 1x4)

4.5

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, full, widish, swinging away, Gayle is caught back and is beaten by the swing

4.6

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, 1 run, slightly wayward, and tucked away off the hip for one

West Indies 17/2   CH Gayle 7* (10b 1x4)

5.1

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, driven on the up, to the right of cover, but Shafiq makes a diving save there. Plus four for him

5.2

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, short of a length, into the pads, defended to leg

5.3

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, fuller, into the pads, beats the inside edge, but it is headed down leg

5.4

Junaid Khan to Gayle, no run, short of a length, angling in towards off, defened back

5.5

Junaid Khan to Gayle, 2 leg byes, pitched in short, too straight this time, and has been deflected fine of fine leg. Called leg-byes. He might have missed it, which explains why it went away so slow

5.6

Junaid Khan to Gayle, 1 run, punched away down the ground, and Wahab makes a diving save at mid-on to save three runs. Seven runs saved by the fielders in this over

West Indies 20/2   CH Gayle 8* (16b 1x4)

6.1

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, what a beauty from Irfan. On a length, just outside off, but that bounce is what you get from short of a length. It seams away too. Gayle beaten comprehensively

6.2

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, Gayle is unsettled clearly. Short of a length, outside off, but he goes groping. This is at 145ks, seaming away, at extra bounce. Beaten again

6.3

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, this is a little loose. Not the same sting behind this short ball, but Gayle's punch finds Misbah at short cover

6.4

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, this has bounced towards the helmet of Gayle. It takes some doing. Bowled at 137ks. Gayle fends in front of his face, but with soft hands, and keeps it down too

6.5

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, SIX, well done Gayle. He has faced some short-pitched bowling, but the moment bowls the odd fuller delivery, he is ready and swings this clean back over his head. Top cricket. Good on Gayle for not being caught on the back foot

6.6

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, 4 leg byes, That's lucky. Gayle backs away to try to hit this over the leg side, Irfan follows him, hits his pad, but the fine leg is up, and is beaetn

West Indies 30/2   CH Gayle 14* (22b 1x4 1x6)

8.1

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, FOUR, this is exciting. Gayle backs away, Irfan bowls length, you are anticipating something, and Gayle gets enough bat on it to clear mid-off. This is not middled by a long way, but the mis-hit is powerful enough

8.2

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, FOUR, what a flick-pull. Short of a length, angling into the hip, he has the front leg in the air, and short-arms this in front of square on the leg side

8.3

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, 1 run, short again, but it has nothing behind it, and has been picked away for a single into the leg side

8.6

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, short, into the body, Gayle gets a top edge on the flick-pull, but it goes into his chest and dies

West Indies 44/2   CH Gayle 23* (26b 3x4 1x6)

10.1

Saeed Ajmal to Gayle, 1 run, short of a length, flat, worked away for an easy single

11.1

Wahab Riaz to Gayle, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, punched to deep cover

11.5

Wahab Riaz to Gayle, no run, good bouncer, at 141ks, gets it shoulder high. Gayle is looking to pull but he has to withdraw because it is too high to control

11.6

Wahab Riaz to Gayle, 1 run, short of a length, on off, pushed to mid-off and pinches a single

West Indies 53/2   CH Gayle 26* (30b 3x4 1x6)

West Indies 58/2   CH Gayle 30* (32b 3x4 1x6)

13.3

Wahab Riaz to Gayle, no run, the free hit is full and wide, and is beaten on the big drive

West Indies 72/2   CH Gayle 34* (44b 3x4 1x6)

16.1

Saeed Ajmal to Gayle, FOUR, makes him play back at a ball that is not short enough, but Gayle gets a healthy enough edge to send it past slip

16.2

Saeed Ajmal to Gayle, 1 run, sweeps at this, and just about gets a bottom edge to short fine leg

16.6

Saeed Ajmal to Gayle, OUT, the doosra. Gayle has not picked it. On a length, outside off, Gayle wants to go back over the bowler's head, but the ball turns in to beat the inside edge by a mile and hits the middle stump
