Commentary

END OF OVER:
30 | 15 Runs | PAK: 189/4

  • Misbah-ul-Haq53 (43b)
  • DJ Bravo6-0-49-1

Presentation:

Bravo: "Was a great batting display by us and Marlon. Very disappointed we didn't win the game for him. Our main bowlers had already bowled five overs (before the rain break) and I could have done a lot better, it was always us against a very good batting line-up. We wanted to bat first anyway and Marlon batted through for us today."

Misbah: "Very pleased. We were looking to exploit the pitch but the rain came early. It was like a normal T20 game, Hafeez and I wanted to play normal cricketing shots. It was the case of not panicking. Junaid bowled very sensibly, good yorkers. We needed 8 an over and I had to adjust. The team will gain from the momentum today."

Samuels is the Man of the Match: "West Indies cricket is still on the rise so we want the fans to stay with us. I set high standards and I'm still in good nick. If you look at my career I have never failed consistently. The coach has been telling the players to give ourselves a chance. There is some fire burning inside me so I had to let it off (while celebrating)."

So Bravo accepts he messed up with his own bowling. Haven't we seen a lot of him being carted around of late? Misbah was beaming and why not? So Pakistan cannot lose this series. One game to go, West Indies need to win to square the series. That game's on Wednesday, same time same place. Do join us then. Thanks for your company. Do read the match report, which is getting updated. Cheers!

End of match: What a day! After all that rain and tuk-tuk this tuk-tuk that, Misbah played a very controlled hand and takes Pakistan to a win that has given them a lead in the series with only one match remaining. That means they can't lose the series anymore. Great hand by Mohammad Hafeez as well, as the target when Pakistan resumed after the rain break was a stiff one. But they did that in canter. Over to Kanishkaa for the presentation.

Shajee Ahmed: "There is nothing new in Misbah's innings. The thing that has surprised most of us is how well Hafeez played today. His timing was simply elegant today."

Vishal Sheokand: "Why does Bravo keep thinking he is a good death bowler?? IPL is different."

Arsalan: "I rest my case about Misbah :)"

Faraz: "@Shahrose: The laws of Physics don't apply to Misbah"
