    17.5 taken! on the second attempt, Simmons is gone, Pakistan are in a huddle, caught at second slip, he went back for the cut, but it bounced a lot, he persisted with the shot and sliced it in the air to the right of second slip who juggled it on the first take as it rammed in to him, but even as it went away from him he got around to it to pouch it the second time 59/2
    2.3 Tanvir goes screaming across towards covers, he has shattered the stumps of young Brathwaite, who was hanging deep in the crease too often, it was a length ball, perfect seam position, set for some inswing, and swing it did, swerving in a long way and going on with the angle to take out off stump, kept a tad low as well but it was the length and the movement that did him in, Kraigg tried to get bat on it, too late. Clatter! 5/1
    48.3 that will be it, the change has worked, he was shuffling across a long way, and Riaz bowled it full and angled it in, struck just below the knee roll, Asoka thinks that is gone, Bravo goes for the review, in fact that would have just about clipped leg stump, so the on field call stands, as it it would have stood if it he had been given not out in the first place and Pakistan had reviewed, Bravo is gone though 115/5
    19.4 loud, imploring, elongated shout for leg before, he was caught in the crease to one that hurried straight on from a length and struck him on the leg, he was too late to get any bat on it, not given by Billy, it struck him above the pads, but Sarwan is not a tall man, Misbah goes for a referral, it would have hit top of off stump, Billy has to raise the crooked finger, huge wicket 63/3
    31.3 gone! no referring this, Rehman is all over West Indies, neat take by Mohammad Salman, puff of dust as it hurried away off a length, close to off stump, he had to play at it, was on the back foot, and the ball took the edge and Salman who had followed the line of the ball all along took an excellent catch and immediately went up 77/4
    55.2 the first nail on the coffin on Day 5. Nash is gone, guiding a tame edge straight into slip's lap. Short of a length, lands well outside off, grips, turns and bounces. Nash would have normally not played at it, but the pressure of the fielders close-in, and the ever lurking threat of the Ajmal doosra forces him to feel for it. Mistake. 135/6
    66.5 Pakistan decide to use their second review. Patent left-armer's trap, angles in from wide of the crease, lands on off and straightens beautifully. Was hitting nothing other than off stump. Asoka de Silva initially signalled it was going down the leg side. Thank god for the UDRS. Baugh is gone. Well bowled Rehman, the Drone. 171/7
    71.6 there are bad shots, and then there is Sammy's hare-brained stroke here. There are bad times to play a poor shot, and there is the fifth morning in Basseterre. Ajmal tosses up a harmless ball on middle and leg. Sammy gets his front foot forward and across to cover the line. So far, so good. Then he decides to whip. In the air. With midwicket waiting for exactly that shot. Curtains. 193/8
    80.3 shambolic finish for the West Indies. Pakistan have wrapped it up with two sessions to spare. Comedy of many errors there. Bishoo works it backward of square on the leg side and watches the ball, Roach hares down the track, turns back too late, by which time Riaz has picked it up and lined up a solid throw at the bowler's end. Roach had no chance, and he did not even try to stretch. He's yards out. Umpire Asoka de Silva asks for the third umpire's assistance. Bizarre. Roach doesn't wait for the lights. He removes the gloves and shakes hands with the jubilant visitors. 230/10
    79.4 Umar Akmal pulls of a smart catch at silly point, and Rampaul is shocked before making his way back. He has been playing these shots rather unmindful of the men close in. Tossed up on off, Rampaul walks into the check drive into the covers and plays it straight at Akmal who doesn't flinch. He holds on, Rampaul stares in agony at him and then keeps walking past him to the hut. Pak are one wicket away. 227/9
