    1.4 not sure if it was a plan to bowl a full-length delivery outside off, but he won't complain as a wicket has come. Charles was nowhere to the pitch of the ball but still went through with a lofted drive, only managed to hit it off the bottom of the bat as Imad Wasim accepted a dolly at cover. 3/1
    21.2 what a waste of a wicket. It was pushed a long way across and Brathwaite makes room and slaps it away. He sets off for a run but point moves quickly to his right and picks it up. He wanted to fire the throw at the bowler's end but changes his mind and hurls a good throw at the wicketkeeper's end. Brathwaite is sent back and Sarfraz collects it cleanly and whips the bails off. Brathwaite is nowhere to be seen, kicks the turf as he walks off 92/2
    28.3 what an effort from the bowler! Fires a yorker outside leg, Bravo jams his bat down and the ball goes just to the right of him. He takes off for the single and Hasan darts across on his followthrough, slides down, gathers the ball and turns around to nail a direct hit at the striker's end. Took a moment of brilliance to end a fabulous innings 127/3
    37.2 no, it doesn't because Wahab has cleaned him up with pace. That was a short of length delivery on middle at 146 kph, it kept a touch low as well, but Samuels was late on it and ended up playing it onto the stumps. Valiant knock, but you got the feeling one good ball was all that was needed at this stage, especially with him swinging come hell or high water. Relief for Pakistan 194/4
    39.2 that's the end of Ramdin's party. Done in by sheer pace from Wahab once again. He angles it back in from wide of the crease from around the stumps, it wasn't all that short for Ramdin to pull off the front-foot. He was late on the shot as well and managed a bottom edge to send the leg stump cartwheeling 209/5
    48.3 slightly wide delivery outside off, bowls it quicker, Pollard tried to muscle over long-off but skewed it to Malik there who settles under it and takes it easily 273/7
    42.1 short ball outside off, chops the pull shot and the ball comes back to the bowler who gathers it on the followthrough, and, like Hasan Ali earlier, turns back around in a jiffy and nails a direct hit at the striker's end. Carlos Brathwaite, perhaps not expecting Pollard to miscue the pull, had set off for a run and he can't make it back. Another brilliant piece of fielding 231/6
