    0.6 gone! Aamer continues to take wickets in his first over, caught and bowled, a slightly overpitched ball coming into the pads, Richards looked to drive it past the bowler, checked his drive, and the ball lobs towards the bowler, who jumps and takes an overhead catch 2/1
    3.6 Pakistan have two! Fletcher hacks it towards backward point where Imran Nazir takes an easy shoulder-high catch, it was a back of a length ball, not exactly one he should have been playing off the front foot, Fletcher decides to go through with his shot and can't get it away over the fielder 11/2
    10.3 and it works, Smith offers a simple catch to Umar Akmal at second slip, Gul extracts some extra bounce, that back of a length ball was coming into Smith as well, who can only glove the ball as he fends at it, the ball pops and sails to second slip, Smith done in by the commentator's curse 36/4
    4.5 The West Indies top order is crumbling here to some top-quality pace bowling, Dowlin is the man to go this time, that ball was cutting sharply into him after pitching outside off, it was very close to his body but he decides to goes for the cut, only gets a bottom-edge to the keeper 14/3
    14.3 the procession continues, this is making a mockery of the "eight best teams" concept the ICC wanted, extra bounce does the job yet again, Reifer fends at one close to his body, top edges it to first slip 47/6
    13.3 off stump is lying on the ground, Aamer has his third, that moves into the batsman just a bit and sneaks between Bernard's bat and pad, we could have a very short match on our hands here 43/5
    24.5 Ajmal strikes in his first over, a lot of flight from Ajmal, the batsman yorks himself by getting on the front foot, the batsman misses the ball and offstump is knocked back 85/8
    14.4 Oh my goodness, that's another one down, a full delivery that was coming into the batsman, who looked to turn it to the leg side, he misses that was going on to hit middle and leg, umpire Harper sends Walton on his way for a golden duck. 47/7
    34.3 that's the end of the innings, Miller comes down the track and his big hit only finds Shoaib Malik at long-on 133/10
    31.1 Pakistan strike first ball after drinks. Tino Best was drawn out of the crease by Ajmal, the turn beats the batsman, Akmal whips off the bails, and Best's stay at the crease is over 121/9

    1.1 Fantastic start for Tonge, makes an absolute mess of Imran Nazir's stumps, a wildly ambitious shot attempted by Nazir, looking to whip a full-length ball behind square, he misses and middle stump is uprooted 5/1
    5.1 Tonge strikes again with the first ball of the over, Akmal nicks it to the keeper, a back of length ball outside off, Akmal wanted to hammer it past extra cover, only manages to get an outside edge 21/2
    13.3 Malik is gone, a thin edge through to the keeper, Tonge increases his length a touch, Malik wafts at it outside off, kisses the ball through to Walton 54/3
    15.1 Tonge's dream evening continues, he gets rid of Yousuf this time, Pakistan can't make a mess of this one, can they? it was a legstump delivery that Yousuf was looking to glance, the ball grazes the thigh pad through to the keeper, umpire thought there was some glove involved and gave him out 61/4
    22.3 Game on, Misbah's stay at the crease is over, he fishes at a delivery outside off, only to nick it to Walton, who snaffles his fourth catch of the day 76/5
