    7.4 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
    12.2 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
    16.6 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
    33.1 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
    23.2 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
    25.1 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
    26.5 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
    30.4 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
    36.2 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
    not out
    38.4 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
