19.3

Shoaib Malik to Chattergoon, OUT, flatter and slightly quicker through the air this time, pitched on a good length outside off, Chattergoon comes down the track and tries to loft it over mid on, does not time it well enough, the ball lobs up in the air and Khurram Manzoor takes a few steps back and takes a well judged catch.

S Chattergoon c Khurram Manzoor b Shoaib Malik 33 (82m 55b 4x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

34.6

Umar Gul to Gayle, OUT, gone!!! That dropped chance did not prove costly. That was fuller on middle and leg, Gayle gets on the back foot and clips it uppishly straight to mid wicket, where Shahid Afridi takes a straightforward catch. Gayle timed that one very well, but did not get the elevation. He walks back for a superb 113!!

CH Gayle c Shahid Afridi b Umar Gul 113 (128m 106b 11x4 5x6) SR: 106.60

West Indies 198/2   RR Sarwan 43* (51b 3x4)   Umar Gul 5-0-34-1

37.3

Shahid Afridi to Sarwan, OUT, given out caught-behind!!! That was flat and quick outside leg stump, Sarwan tries to work that one in the direction of short-fine leg yet again, gets the thinnest of edge down the leg side, and Akmal moves to his left to take a good catch. An unfortunate way to get out.

West Indies 213/3   S Chanderpaul 2* (5b)   Shahid Afridi 8.3-0-42-1
