    3.1 Pakistan have been jolted hard by Ravi Rampaul. He is bouncing them out. "Absolutely crazy batting," says Rameez Raja on air. This was another bouncer - well not quite a bouncer but banged in short of length around that off stump - and Haffez went for the pull. The top edge takes the ball towards square-leg where Bishoo takes it with utmost delight 12/3
    1.1 Caught by Simmons! It was banged in short and he went for the big pull shot. He tried to fetch it from outside off and that, coupled with the bounce, did him in. The ball flew up and Simmons went back and waited for the ball to come back to him. 9/1
    1.2 Two in two! Hold on,Windies are having a small phase of joy here. This one landed short of length and held its line. Asad Shafiq hung his bat out to dry and the ball flew low to the right of second slip where Sammy pouches it with skill and glee 9/2

    11.4 What a sharp lovely lifting snorter! Rampaul has taken out Umar Akmal with a beauty. It screamed up at Umar who hopped but jumped right into more trouble. he would have been better off trying to leave it but it's easier said than done of course. He jumped to try get on top of the bounce but it kept climbing. Trouble. He tried to sway away at the last instant. Too late. The ball clipped the edge and flew to the keeper. 49/4
    31.2 Given out lbw though there was an inside edge. It landed full on a length around middle and began to turn towards middle and off. Hammad leaned forward to defend and pushed outside the line. The ball clipped the inside edge and hit the pad. Ump Ashoka thought it must have hit the pad first. Hammad's promising knock is over now. Enter Shahid Afridi. 127/5
    33.2 Well .. er ... this was a slog. He fetched this leg break from well outside off and went for a big slog. Even as it went in the air towards covers, he looked at his partner and winced. 143/6
    35.3 If only he had run properly last ball, he wouldn't have been on strike this delivery to face this absolute gem! The deadly flipper! It landed on a length, or perhaps back of a length, around the off stump line and Salman thought, ok let me cut. Fatal mistake. The ball skidded on quickly and straight towards the off stump before he could get the bat down. Whoosh! Clatter! 148/7
