    17.4 this one spun back in to beat Brathwaite's attempted tuck with the spin across the line. He was struck in front of middle. Although he was fairly a long way forward, he was struck below the knee roll. There was no inside edge either, so third umpire S Ravi had a straightforward deicsion to make 75/2
    9.2 the leg stump is titled back! Lewis' front leg shuffles across early, he can't escape now. This good length ball swings in, having started from outside leg, from over the wicket, and takes the leg stump. You don't need the umpires and the tracker for this. Many would have looked to play it straight or towards mid-on. Lewis was aiming for midwicket 45/1
    20.6 the struggle is finally over for Darren Bravo, and it's the extra pace that's done him in here. Bravo, perhaps expecting a short ball, was camping back. This one was floated at length around off. The ball fizzed through after pitching and a tentative poke away from the body found the edge as Sarfaz accepted it gleefully. 87/3
    22.2 Oh, dear. What a terrible, terrible way to be dismissed. Ramdin chopped this to point and took a couple of paces down the pitch before turning his back on his partner. By then, Samuels had run almost the entire length of the pitch. Rizwan, who picked the ball up had the awareness to run towards the stumps and take the bails off rather than fire a throw. West Indies are crashing and burning here in the desert 93/4
    43.6 that's the end of that. Gets a thick inside edge to square leg. No sooner than it hit the bat, Ramdin was off for the single without looking at his partner. Hassan Ali, who initially wanted to run to the stumps, lobbed the throw to Rizwan, who was backing up from point. He then ran to the stumps to whip the bails off with Ramdin nowhere in sight after being sent back 172/10
    29.1 Malik runs in from long-off, and snaps up a tumbling catch. Nicely judged. Well-flighted ball, drifts into KP. Nawaz has him stretching forward and skying a loft. KP's underwhelming UAE tour is over 117/5
    39.2 Imad returns and provides the breakthrough. Holder steps away outside leg, aims for a massive mow over midwicket possibly. He makes no connection. Imad does, hitting off with a straight delivery. WI six down 159/6
    40.2 steps out to flick but is beaten by one that skids straight on. Sarfraz effects the simplest of stumpings. Didn't make any effort to get to the pitch of the ball, neither did he try to get back into the crease once he was beaten. Too easy for Pakistan at the moment. 161/7
    40.6 as easy as eating chips for the fielder at short third man. Benn looks to play the reverse sweep, but the ball bounced a bit more to take the top edge as Sohail Khan, who it appeared was blinded by the lights, took it comfortably in the end. 161/8
    43.1 100 ODI wickets for Wahab! That would have got most tailenders. Bangs one in short from around the stumps, too quick for Joseph as he looks to pull, the bat face turns skywards as the top edge is taken easily by Shoaib Malik, who didn't have to move an inch at short midwicket. The end is near 170/9
