ICC Cricket World Cup - 1st quarter final

Pakistan v West Indies

Pakistan won by 10 wickets (with 175 balls remaining)

0.1

Umar Gul to Smith, FOUR, Whack! Smith sets the ball rolling in the first Quarter-final with a cracking square cut. Two slips in place and Smith spanks it past point. It was shortish and outside off and Smith loves to cut

West Indies 4/0   DS Smith 4* (1b 1x4)   Umar Gul 0.1-0-4-0

1.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Gayle, FOUR, Smack! The first ball that Hafeez flighted and Gayle pounces immediately. It was around off stump and he dragged it to wide midwicket boundary.

West Indies 9/0   CH Gayle 4* (5b 1x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 0.5-0-5-0

2.3

Umar Gul to Gayle, FOUR, Walloped! The Gayle charge is on. He rushed down the track, got outside the leg in the process and smashed this length delivery on the up and over mid-off.

West Indies 14/0   CH Gayle 8* (7b 2x4)   Umar Gul 1.3-0-9-0

12.3

Wahab Riaz to Sarwan, FOUR, full in length and on the pads, and Sarwan gets a tickle on it. It runs down to fine-leg boundary. The last four was by Gayle.

West Indies 27/3   RR Sarwan 8* (29b 1x4)   Wahab Riaz 1.3-0-6-0

12.5

Wahab Riaz to Sarwan, FOUR, Gorgeous. Sars' first good shot. The first bit he timed. It was a length delivery angled across him and he caressed it through extra cover.

West Indies 31/3   RR Sarwan 12* (31b 2x4)   Wahab Riaz 1.5-0-10-0

30.1

Shahid Afridi to Roach, FOUR, Roach gets a four, using Afridi's pace to steer a cut backward of point. Short, wide and really fast, it was there to be hit.

West Indies 78/8   KAJ Roach 6* (7b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 7.1-0-23-3

36.6

Wahab Riaz to Roach, FOUR, Stylish whip through midwicket! 100 up. Roach has looked pretty good so far. This was on the leg and middle line and Roach whips it through midwicket
