    7.6 another leave and another wicket. This time it is lbw. Length ball, on off, or may be just outside, he is expecting to angle away, but it seams back in. Jamshed has made up his mind to leave it, and the ball hits him on the pad. Umpire Wilson takes his time before raising the finger. Hawkeye says it would have missed off stump. There is no DRS in this match. The controversial bit, though, is that WICB's media release on playing conditions stated: "DRS will have Hawkeye and Ultramotion" 21/3
    3.3 he has left it onto the stumps. Length ball outside off, he plants the front foot across, wants to the leave the ball alone, but he is late in doing so. The ball seams away a touch, hits the inside edge, and ricochets onto the stumps 15/1
    5.6 Hafeez is bowled in the rain. What if they walk off now? Hafeez won't be a pleased man. The crowd has thrown away the umbrella and is enjoying this wicket. A bad leave. Doesn't cover his off stump, and Holder gets this length ball to jag back in and take the open invitation to hit the stumps 18/2
    47.2 Misbah is cross with himself. He had set this up for a final charge, but the moment he tries to hit, he has edged one. Well done by Bravo. Bowls a slower ball, Misbah is done in, and he edges it through to Charles 200/8
    9.1 what a superb catch by Charles. Golden duck for Shafiq. Holder on a hat-trick. Short of a length, on off, Shafiq plays the angle, the ball holds its line, squares him up, takes the edge. And Charles goes flying to his right towards first slip to pluck this one-handed 23/4
    20.1 then there were five. Umar Akmal has been playing to leg a bit too often. This one - a length ball - stops a little on him, takes the leading edge, and Bravo takes a safe catch running back from mid-on 47/5
    38.6 finally West Indies get rid of Afridi, but has he done enough damage already? Slower ball, short of a length, outside off. Afridi doesn't pick it, and skies it towards deep midwicket where Sammy moves to his left to complete the catch. Flamboyant celebrations from both Sammy and Pollard 167/6
    44.2 regulation pace short ball, Riaz goes to pull, gets a meaty top edge, finds fine leg. Quite a steepler 183/7

    4.6 Gayle can't run. Not sure why he tried this single when he knows he can't run fast anymore. Samuels pushes it towards cover, and is anxious to get off the mark. Gayle hesitates before going, but even if he had set off immediately he couldn't have beaten Misbah's direct hit at his pace 7/3
    0.2 full toss at the base of off. Charles has missed it. What a first ball to get. A near yorker from that height at 146ks. Before Charles can say hello, the off stump is uprooted. Irfan is running in circles in celebration 1/1
    4.3 Bravo is, like the man he tries to emulate, walking. Extra bounce again. Short of a length, rising into the ribs, Bravo wants to get inside the line and work it away, but is strangled down the leg side, and gloves it through 7/2
    28.2 appeal for pad first, Reifell says pad first. Quick legbreak again, pitches middle and leg, straightens,is headed towards off, hits the pad first, and has been rightly given out lbw. Afridi raises his arms in elation again. Lala in line for five 51/7
    22.1 Has Simmons dragged the back foot? Lovely delivery. A quick legbreak that dips on him, drawing him forward and then spinning past the edge. Akmal is quick with the stumping. Simmons has dragged his foot onto the crease. I don't see any part of the toe behind the line, but it is up to the third umpire on how he interprets the pictures. He agrees with me. Given 41/4
    22.2 and with one come two for Afridi. Absolutely sensational comeback by Afridi. No. 350 too. Afridi knows Bravo might be mindful of the legbreak that he had bowled previously, and slips in the quicker slider to catch him dead in front. The Boris-Becker celebration is back. How good to see it back 41/5
    26.1 Afridi juts his chest out again, and his team-mates surround him again. Pollard's horror home season continues. Drills a legbreak straight down long-off's throat. West Indies' two captains this season have failed yet again. And they removed Sammy 50/6

    30.4 easy does it. That's five for Afridi. Where were you, Shahid? We have missed you. Tosses this up in the air, slower too, gets a leading edge from Roach, which comes back at him for a comfortable catch. That's the third time Afridi has taken five and scored a fifty in the same match. No one else has ever done it even twice 55/8
    40.2 No. 6 for Afridi. Where was he hiding all this while? Short of a length, outside off, stops at him a touch, lobbed to short cover. This is Afridi's personal best, and the best figures by anybody in West Indies 98/9
    40.6 it's all over. Afridi has seven. One of the all-time great performances in an ODI. Holder is playing for the legbreak, but this is the slider, and he is caught in front of off and on the back foot. No need to even appeal for this. West Indies' lowest total against Pakistan, and their worst score against any team at home. These are the second-biggest figures ever in an ODI. And a fifty to go with it 98/10
