    20.5 Simmons went down the track and he perhaps got too close to it. He ended up jabbing and scoooping a return catch. Ajmal lunged to his left to hold on! 92/2
    1.1 Trapped! First ball for Hafeez! What a start. Overcast conditions, supposed to help seam, and what does he do? Strikes first ball with his off break! It drifted in from round the stumps, landed just outside the off stump and moved in with the arm. Again, yet again, Smith pushes well outside the line rather clulessly 6/1
    27.2 gone! Breakthrough for Pakistan and another West Indies batsman fails to convert a useful start. Bravo played a cross a full delivery and that was heading onto leg stump. The umpire took his time, but made the right decision 118/3
    33.5 Junaid picks his first wicket! Little big moment for him! It was a length delivery that shaped in off the seam, from round the stumps. Samuels was in no position to play a forcing shot - he was on the back foot and tried to force this through off and only managed to get a fatal inside edge 131/4
    36.1 Kirk is run out. It jagged up towards the rib cage and Bravo hopped to stab it.. The ball rolled towards backward point. Bravo didn't want a run but Kirk Edwards was charging across. Umar Akmal swooped in, picked the ball, and fired a direct hit at the non-striker's end. Clatter! 150/5
    38.5 Another one ! What is happening out there? Poor thinking. It was a short-of-length delivery outside off and Bravo tried to knife through the line but could't handle the extra bounce. The ball wobbled away to long-on. Batting Powerplay is yet to be taken 158/7
    38.3 Why not take the batting Powerplay if you going to slog like this? IT was a short delivery outside off and he slogged across- flat batted it - high to left of long-on where Shehzad pouches it. Sammy shakes his head as he walks off. 158/6
    41.6 Quick work from Salman! The batsman rushed down the track, looking for glory. This was the off break and it turned in, went through the bat and pad and ended up outside leg. Salman picked it, moved quickly to his left, collected it and broke the stumps in a flash 162/9
    40.6 They continue to tumble here. Roach is troubled by this round-the-stumps angle. He tries to work it to the on side, thinking i t will come in with the angle but it doesn't come in as much as he thought. He gets a leading edge on this length delivery and it lobs gently to point 161/8

    43.4 And its over. The end of misery for some West Indies fans. More agony for some. Bishoo tries a reverse sweep and top edges it to backward point! 171/10

    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
