ICC Cricket World Cup - 1st quarter final

Pakistan v West Indies

Pakistan won by 10 wickets (with 175 balls remaining)

26.6

Shahid Afridi to Sammy, 1 run, and the strangest shot you will see to a hat-trick ball. Full delivery, curling in towards leg stump as Sammy looks to work it to the leg side and gets a leading edge that hangs in the air menacingly before it lands at vacant square leg

West Indies 70/6   DJG Sammy 1* (1b)

27.1

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, no run, dropped by Younis at slip. Not the easiest take. Offie lands on off and comes in, Sammy gets a leading edge that goes very fine and Younis dives to his left, gets his hand to it, but can't hold on.

27.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, 1 wide, slides one down the leg side. I wonder why. Just bowl straight, there are wickets to be had.

27.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, OUT, just like that. The West Indian captain has no answer to a delightful doosra that makes him look like a novie. Ajmal drifts it in towards off and then gets it to bite and nip away from a length. Sammy pokes away from the crease, completely befuddled by the brilliance of the ball and is struck on the crease, in front of middle. The umpire's finger went up almost before Pakistan appealed.
