View dismissal Azhar Ali* c †Ramdin b Gabriel 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 90.1 mph, what a start first up! Azhar Ali is gone, and it has taken a beauty to get him. This one pitches on length outside off and leaves him late, Azhar, who is camping back, is squared up as he pokes at that with the edge accepted gleefully by Denesh Ramdin. Umpire Ahsan Raza took a while, but the right decision has been made in the end. 0/1
View dismissal Sharjeel Khan c Narine b Benn 54 60 43 6 3 125.58
14.2 58.7 mph, another swipe across the line and he can't middle it this time. Fetched it from way outside off and tried to slog it. But it was too wide and not full enough to connect with the slog either. Gets a healthy leading edge that is snaffled at short third man 82/2
View dismissal Babar Azam c Pollard b CR Brathwaite 120 177 131 8 3 91.60
42.1 75.4 mph, those are the kind of catches you really don't plan for. This one was drilled down the ground, the flick of the wrists, generated the power. It was destined to sail over wide long-on, but Kieron Pollard, lurking around the ropes, had other ideas. He ran around the ropes and then stretched full-length to his right to use every inch of his height to his advantage. Then plucked his hand out and was airborne as the ball got stuck in. Amazingly, he had the presence of mind to realise he was going over the ropes, and then gently lobbed the ball back, got back into the field of play, settled himself underneath to take the catch. Imagine he completed all of this in a matter of five seconds. Simply outstanding. He's done this time and again in the IPL, so it doesn't really come as a surprise. Super stuff. 239/6
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Benn b Narine 6 18 12 0 0 50.00
17.4 52.3 mph, outside edge taken at first slip. It was the carrom ball from Narine and Malik presses forward and is looking to play for the off-spin. Gets a thick outside edge that is well-taken by Benn who gets down quickly to pouch it 93/3
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c †Ramdin b Holder 35 72 45 1 0 77.77
34.6 80.0 mph, comes down the track and looks to slog across the line. It was another slower ball and Sarfaraz fetches it from way outside off, loses balance as he plays the shot and gets an under edge that is held by the wicketkeeper. Clear noise and the umpire raises his finger. Replays show that the front foot landing may have gone awry. They try a couple of angles and it becomes clear that Holder has just about got his foot behind the line. A centimetre further outside and it would have been a no-ball. They check if the catch was clean as it was snaffled quite low. All clear in the end as the giant screen spells out 'OUT' 192/4
View dismissal Mohammad Rizwan run out (Gabriel) 11 15 12 1 0 91.66
39.1 from Narine, total chaos!. Flat and quick on middle stumps, tries to open the face of his bat and get it to third man. There is a short third man in place and the striker sets off for a run. He is hesitant and can't make his mind up. Azam at the non-striker's end sends him back and he scampers back but it's a direct hit and he is caught short of his crease 211/5
View dismissal Imad Wasim b CR Brathwaite 24 35 24 2 0 100.00
46.3 67.1 mph, full, slow and straight on middle, he went for a biff across the line but was through with the stroke even before the ball got to him. By the time the bat came down, the ball had already hit the middle of middle stump. Imad Wasim has been dismissed, finally. That can put an end to all talks of his average for the time being. Excellent ball from Carlos. As angry and annoyed as West Indies have been since coming back onto the field, they've been that much more intense in their effort on the field too. 269/7
View dismissal Mohammad Nawaz (3) c Holder b CR Brathwaite 19 32 19 0 1 100.00
48.1 64.1 mph, good strike, but straight down the throat of the captain at deep midwicket. Slowed it down nicely as he saw the batsman trying to wind up, he went through with the swing and holed out to the lone ban in the boundary. Quit a comeback this has been by West Indies after the break. And to think of it, they weren't keen to come out and play because of ongoing issues with the floodlights 281/9
View dismissal Wahab Riaz run out (CR Brathwaite) 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
46.4 from CR Brathwaite, hits the stumps direct at the non-striker's end as Wahab looks to scamper a leg-bye. But the bat gets stuck into the crease just as he plonks it in. At the same point, it also slips out of his hand and Wahab's foot is in the air as the bails come off. Third umpire has been called for, and he's made the right decision. Carlos missed a run-out chance earlier, but has somewhat made up for it with this super throw. Poor from Wahab, no excuses for not grounding his bat properly, he had all the time in the world to sort that in the nick of time 269/8

View dismissal J Charles c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 20 25 21 1 1 95.23
7.4 84.5 mph, edged and gone. Short of a length ball outside off, angled in to the right-hander before it straightens late. Charles sticks his bat out and pokes at it, gets an outside edge. Clear sound as the ball goes to the wicketkeeper 27/1
View dismissal KC Brathwaite c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Hasan Ali 14 47 38 1 0 36.84
12.2 82.2 mph, tires to open the face of his bat and pays the price. It was slightly short of a length and quite close to off stump. Brathwaite did the mistake of trying to run it down to third man. It wasn't quite wide enough to do that and he gets an outside edge that is held by the wicketkeeper 41/2
View dismissal DM Bravo b Mohammad Nawaz 12 35 28 0 0 42.85
16.6 59.4 mph, flatter ball that goes through straight. Bravo was looking to make room and slap it away. But the ball wasn't wide enough. And it spins back in sharply and cramps him for room. Keeps a tad low as well and Bravo makes no connection as the ball crashes into the stumps 54/3
View dismissal MN Samuels b Wahab Riaz 46 84 59 1 2 77.96
33.1 87.9 mph, done in by pace. Good length ball, angled in. It is delivered with some serious pace and Samuels has little time to react to it. The ball hits him on the pad first before crashing into the stumps. He had backed away a long way to make room for himself and ended up exposing the stumps and the bowler followed him with a pacy delivery 135/8
View dismissal D Ramdin c Azhar Ali b Mohammad Nawaz 8 23 16 1 0 50.00
23.2 53.9 mph, Azhar Ali has the last laugh, but the ball has pounded into his hands and he's in some pain, which he won't mind because Pakistan have broken what was looking like a threatening partnership. This was gently tossed up outside off, Ramdin went hard at that and picked the bones out of that, except he found the cover fielder instead of going over. The ball banged Azhar's chest and then lodged between his hands as he recovered to complete the catch. 89/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c Sharjeel Khan b Mohammad Nawaz 9 8 7 0 1 128.57
25.1 57.7 mph, it was just a matter of time, you felt, before Pollard holed out and that's been proved right. There's a hint of grip and turn on this one, Pollard was looking to go over cover, but ended up slicing it towards deep point where Sharjeel took a straightforward catch. That he didn't get to the pitch of the ball may have also influenced the final outcome as the ball skewed up. West Indies in disarray now. 99/5
View dismissal JO Holder* b Imad Wasim 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
26.5 58.1 mph, through the gate this time, and it's not surprising at all. The lbw shout was eerily similar, except the ball didn't sneak through. No such luck this time. A familiar mode of dismissal for Imad. This one drifts back in again, almost like a late inswinger, Holder looks to go inside-out but plays down the wrong line to hear the sound of the ball hitting the stumps. The collapse continues 103/6
View dismissal CR Brathwaite b Mohammad Nawaz 15 14 16 0 2 93.75
30.4 55.2 mph, that is as good as it gets for a left-arm spinner. Carlos plays for the one that straightens, but this time it spun away sharply to beat his forward prod and hit off stump. Nawaz has bowled a ripper and that should give him so much confidence 125/7
View dismissal SP Narine c Imad Wasim b Hasan Ali 23 32 16 2 2 143.75
36.2 73.4 mph, slower ball, Narine doesn't pick up the drop in pace and skies a catch to deep midwicket. It was hurled full and Narine set himself up to go big over the leg side. He gets some solid elevation on it and the ball stays up for a long time. Imad Wasim has enough time to settle under it at deep midwicket and takes it 166/9
SJ Benn not out 16 31 19 2 0 84.21
View dismissal ST Gabriel b Hasan Ali 2 12 8 0 0 25.00
38.4 74.4 mph, slower ball does it. Good length and Hasan rolled his fingers over the seam. Gabriel doesn't move his feet and tentatively sticks his bat out. The ball keeps a bit low and goes through the gate 175/10
