    25.3 Charles' pained effort comes to an end with an awkward pull shot. That's head high and outside off, and he decides to pull it. There is no way anyone can control a hook from that line and height. And this time the edge finds a fielder too 98/3
    6.4 and Smith does what he has become used to. Another single-figures score. Follows a wide length ball, away from the body, no feet. The ball moves away a touch, and takes the edge to second slip where he is caught by... well... Hafeez 26/1
    12.4 appeal for catch at the wicket, not given and they have immediately reviewed it. And it's not just Junaid and Akmal, even Hafeez wants the review. Short of a length, angling in, Bravo is not behind the line as he defends. There is a clear sound as the ball passes the outside edge, but there is no obvious deviation. Bravo, a walker from whatever cricket I have seen him play, is not pleased with this. Seriously we don't have enough technology here to operate proper DRS. He has given him out based on sound alone. Bravo is left to shake his head 44/2
    41.2 Samuels' struggle ends. A day after he said something to the effect of "I have this Pakistan attack sorted". Bouncer outside off, he has been under a lot of pressure for his strike rate, and just throws his bat at this. Ends up toe-ending and dragging it to long-on for a sharp low catch from Afridi 159/5
    35.2 lovely one-handed catch by Akmal. Bouncer, higher than the shoulder, Gayle gets a top edge on the hook, and Akmal takes a leaping catch to his right. Gayle walks 131/4
    44.1 Ajmal gets the man who has hit him for two sixes today. Simmons tries the slog sweep, has timed it well, but he has hit this into a stiff breeze. The ball just hangs there, and Hafeez comes around from deep midwicket. Huge cheer as Simmons walks off because the next man in is St Lucia's own Darren Sammy 170/6
    48.4 no calling from the fielders. Shehzad might be injured here. Bravo throws his bat at another delivery, this time he draws another massive edge that is going towards long-off. Haris from long-off and Shehzad from long-on converge without calling. Haris takes the catch with Shehzad under it. Shehzad is holding on to his left arm 223/7

    10.5 Shehzad has sold his mate down the river. Played from deep inside the crease, he starts running for a single, only to realise he has hit it too close to Gayle at square leg. Now he sends Jamshed back, and his only chance is an error from West Indies. He almost gets it. Gayle lobs the ball back towards the non-striker's end, Sammy runs back to collect, but seems to have lost the ball. Somehow, though, the throw is a direct hit 51/1
    30.2 Bravo takes a superb catch running back and over his shoulder. Shehzad wants to pull, but the ball is not short enough, and comes on quickly. He ends up lobbing it what seems like over mid-on, but Bravo runs back and takes it over his shoulder, never losing sight of the ball 123/3
    16.4 short of a length, Hafeez swipes across the line, gets a massive top edge, Simmons goes back to catch it 64/2
    49.2 Misbah, you little tease. How do you even manage to do this? The game is still alive. Low full toss, hit straight down straight short midwicket's throat. Before leaving, Misbah has a word with Afridi. And also the new batsman, Ajmal 242/6
    37.6 that might even have been wide had Sohail not driven at it. As it turns out, his feet are rooted, and he is playing well away from his body, edging it through to the keeper 160/4
    47.4 Akmal has played one shot too many. He has premeditated a drive, but the ball is short of a length, and all he manages is a lob to mid-off. And the covers are coming on. Forget D/L, Pakistan have lost a settled batsman who was going well to a premeditated shot. Pakistan are five ahead on D/L, though 226/5
