    44.4 Nawaz goes up for a leg-before appeal, did it straighten enough? umpire Gough turns it down. Misbah wants a review. Pushed through quick from around the wicket, 90ks, good length, Brathwaite has had this tendency to camp on the back foot in this innings. The ball skids on and Brathwaite, looking to work to the leg side, is hit on the pad in front of middle and leg stump. HawkEye shows it would carry on to hit the top of leg stump. Pakistan's review is successful 124/4
    7.5 The middle stump is pegged back. Much fuller and faster outside leg stump, the length wasn't quite there for the sweep, and there are close-in catchers. Risky shot, but Johnson goes through with it. The ball brushes the flap of the front pad and disturbs the stumps. Yasir strikes in his second over with the new-ish ball. Johnson was out sweeping Yasir in WI's first innings of the day-night Test too 28/1
    18.6 Oh dear, Bravo gives it away! Short and wide outside off, it was on a set of stumps outside off. Bravo throws his hands at it and slashes a cut in the air to Nawaz at backward point. Why did Bravo chase the ball? Why didn't he keep it down? Only he knows. Nawaz gleefully accepts a head-high catch 63/2
    41.3 bump ball? Yasir thinks he has his man. The soft signal from Illingworth is out. He refers it to the TV umpire. Definitely not a bump ball. Samuels is gone. He pre-meditated by skipping out of the crease. Pushed through on leg stump, drifts in a bit. Samuels yorks himself and jabs his bat down. Ends up chipping a return catch 112/3
    83.6 cleaned 'im up this time. Yasir strikes and Blackwood falls for 95. A gem of a delivery, the result of the new ball. Flatter trajectory on leg and middle, Blackwood plays for a bit if turn. But it isn't there. Skids on and strikes Blackwood on the pad before veering to hit the off stump. Doubt Blackwood would have been beaten had it not been the new ball. Great knock from Blackwood. 244/6
    71.2 gone this time. A beautiful delivery. Tossed this one up, loop. Draws Chase forward with that flight and the full length. Chase prods with his bat, but the ball pitches slightly outside off and spins prodigiously. Takes the outside edge and Sarfraz follows the ball and takes a good catch. WI lose their first of the morning 187/5
    103.6 taken! Superb catch. Superb bowling. Pitches this slightly short outside off, Hope sees the width and thinks of defending, but the ball spins prodigiously after pitching and takes the outside edge of Hope's withdrawing bat. Carries low to Younis' left at first slip and he takes a lovely reflex catch. Wanted to bail out of the stroke but it was a fraction of a second too late. Such fine margins in sport 311/8
    89.4 pinned in front! Holder misreads the length and is plumb in front. Five-for for Yasir. Holder doesn't bother reviewing. Yasir pushes this through on leg, skids on again. No turn. That was actually a very good length, Holder was unsure whether to come forward or go back. He stays back, plays for a bit of turn and is beaten on the inside edge. The ball carries on with its angle to hit Holder in front of leg. Great bowling, reward for Yasir's toil this morning. Holder asks for the review well after time, but the umpire tells him his time is up 266/7
    107.6 that's it. Pakistan seal the series. Misbah takes the catch and Pakistan win by 133 runs. Lots of flight from Babar on off, Bishoo gets low, looking to heave the flight over midwicket. Some extra bounce is responsible for a top edge. The ball lobs up towards midwicket, Misbah runs around and takes the catch. 322/10
    104.5 no doubts about this one. Ten in the match for Yasir. Lots of flight on that one and wide outside off, draws Cummins forward but the ball pitches and rips back in. Cummins plays inside the line and is beaten on the outside edge. The ball continues on its trajectory to hit the middle stump. Sensational bowling. Sublime variations in length and pace 312/9
