    2.2 big, big appeal for lbw, turned down, long discussion whether to take the review, they finally decide to take it, pitches short of a length and outside off, jags in a big way, hits the batsman on the thigh on the back leg, that looked to be going over at first sight, but Hawk-Eye says that is going to hit middle and leg, ,mayhem in Providence, West Indies are cock-a-hoop, music in the stadium 2/3
    1.3 Rampaul has struck in his first over once again, Umar is gone lbw, he chats with Hafeez about asking for the review, he decides against it, that pitched short of a length, on middle and leg, and would have gone on to hit off, but that struck him near the top of the pad, height might have been a question there 2/1
    1.5 this time he edges, Providence goes crazy, as does Rampaul and the rest of the West Indies team, this was shorter than the previous one, impeccable line though, slight away movement, Azhar Ali is drawn towards that one, nicks it through to the keeper, W 0 W is the last three deliveries from Rampaul, that was a superb ball from Rampaul 2/2
    38.4 ripper from Rampaul, this is not a good sign for Pakistan, he bowls Shafiq with a gigantic incutter, pitching around a length outside off, comes in viciously, Shafiq looks to defend that, but he has no chance as the ball zips past the bat and pad gap and crashes into the top of middle 83/4
    56.3 captain removes captain, or does he? referral time, big lbw appeal that was upheld by Bowden, height seems to be a problem here as it hit him well over the knee roll, though there wasn't too big a stride forward, no bat involved, pitching short of a length and outside off, comes in and replays show that was taking the top of middle 135/5
    70.3 that's pretty much the game for West Indies, Sammy is away on a celebratory run, the lbw count keeps spiralling, his stump-to-stump line working wonders here, as usual it pitched back of a length and came in, Akmal looked to defend off the front foot, it sneaks past the bat and hits the pad in front of off and middle, there's no doubt about this one, and he couldn't have reviewed it anyway, Sammy has four wickets, well, well, well, who'd thunk that? 166/9
    56.5 Sammy is doing it for the West Indies, another wicket for him, the critics can take that, it was another short of length ball angling in, hit him low in front of middle, and that was going on to take out middle, Salman was looking to defend down the track, played down the wrong line, ball moves in and past the bat, West Indies ahead at this stage 135/6
    67.6 taken at second slip, or was it? Rehman doesn't think it was, he's sticking around, umpires are conferring, it was an overpitched ball outside off, Rehman looks to squeeze that one past slips, only gets it as far as Devon Smith at second slip, from the replays I'd say that is a clean catch, but what does Asoka de Silva say? he wants more replays, and finally Asoka makes the right call, gives Rehman out, Smith finally makes an impact against the spinners 160/7
    68.6 he may not be hitting the high 80-mph mark, but Sammy is proving really effective here, Gul asks for a review after being given lbw, it was the typical short of length Sammy delivery that angles in, hit him in front of middle and leg, just above the knee roll, replays show it was going to hit leg, Gul has to go, he has a rueful grin on his face, perhaps he thought he edged that as he looked to clip it to square leg, in any case Pakistan have no more reviews remaining 163/8
    not out
    72.6 West Indies' two years wait for a Test win is over, the much-maligned Darren Sammy has five in the second innings, he bowls the last man, knocks middle stump over by jagging it past the forward defence to complete his five-for and complete the win, a great moment for controversy-plagued West Indies cricket, Sammy signals the victory to the dressing room, he holds the ball aloft and takes in the applause of the smattering of fans who have turned up, West Indies get into a celebratory huddle, Pakistan players sit ashen-faced in the dressing room 178/10
