Umar Gul to Sarwan, 1 run, That old problem of Sarwan. He does get squared up when the ball straightens on the off stump line. For a top-order batsman, I am always surprised how much he gets squared up by that delivery. Edges this one to third man

16.2

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, back of a length on off stump, Sarwan defends to the off side

16.3

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, This seems like a ridicuous review for lbw. Sarwan has jumped out of the crease, he's atleast a couple of feet outside as he defends with bat and pad close together. Googly from Afridi, lands outside off and jams into bat and pad. Or is it pad and bat? The distance is over 2.5 m. Impact is outside the line. The only thing going for the appeal is that the ball is hitting off stump. The decision stays.

16.4

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, similar ball, similar appeal, same decision, but this time no referral. Sarwan was again out of the crease, but if anything this time he was hit in line. Hmm. Replays in. It was barely clipping the top of middle.

16.5

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, holds the length back, Sarwan feels for it after getting half forward and defends

16.6

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, interesting first over from Afridi, it is a maiden as Sarwan glances another one drifting into the pads, and Hafeez does well at short fine leg.

West Indies 38/3   RR Sarwan 13* (46b 2x4)
17.5

Saeed Ajmal to Sarwan, no run, turning in from outside off, Sarwan forces back to the bowler off the front foot

17.6

Saeed Ajmal to Sarwan, no run, an airy cut to end the over, Sarwan misses as Ajmal zips one past a foot outside off. Not short or wide enough for the shot.

West Indies 39/3   RR Sarwan 13* (48b 2x4)
18.2

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, 2 runs, dropped by Gul in clumsy fashion. Even Kamran looks incredulous! It wasn't that easy. Leggie from Afridi outside off, Sarwan again jumps out, gets to the flight and looks to chip over extra cover. Gul attacks the ball from widish long off at a poor angle, running sideways instead of head on. He then tries to tumble and pouch, gets his hands to it, and lets it slip.

18.3

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, full and wide outside off, Sarwan lets it go

18.4

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, 1 run, he works another full ball to the leg side calmly for a single

20.2

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, Sarwan again looks to jump out, but Afridi holds the length back and Sarwan looks to cut. Can't get it past the point cordon.

20.3

22.3

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, 2 runs, Sarwan is out of the crease again, but gets too close to a full ball on leg stump and ends up mistiming a swipe to midwicket. All the same, its into the gap and he gets a couple

22.4

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, no run, again Sarwan skips out of the crease, he's concerned about Afridi's lbw threat clearly. Played defensively into the off side

22.5

23.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sarwan, no run, slower and loopier on the off stump line, defended into the off side

23.3

Saeed Ajmal to Sarwan, no run, Sarwan nearly, again, falls for the doosra. Back of a length outside off, and extra bounce as it holds its line. Sarwan ends up inside edging a forceful square drive and it goes close to the stumps.

23.4

Saeed Ajmal to Sarwan, no run, slower and outside off, Sarwan gets half forward to defend

23.5

Saeed Ajmal to Sarwan, 1 run, doosra dropped outside off, this time Sarwan reads it and cuts late to the man at deepish backward point

West Indies 58/3   RR Sarwan 24* (67b 2x4)
24.1

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, OUT, all over. Afridi has threatened to dismiss Sarwan right from the word go, and ends up getting him on the square drive. This time Sarwan doesn't jump out. Afridi keeps it full and a little wide of off stump, but importantly gets bounce out of the turf, and that did the trick. Sarwan went for the on the up square drive, but could not keep the shot down. The extra bounce meant, he carved it straight at Umar Akmal standing at point. West Indies are going nowhere.

RR Sarwan c Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 24 (92m 68b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

West Indies 58/4   RR Sarwan 24 (68b 2x4)
