    0.6 Bravo the captain. Dives in front of first slip to send Farhat back. Nothing shot really. Pushes at a length ball, away from the body. It angles away, takes a healthy edge, and is headed for a comfortable take for Gayle at first slip when Bravo dives to his right and takes it one-handed 2/1
    29.2 Jamshed has thrown it away. This is not what Pakistan do. I think he is trying to drive this inside-out over cover, but he hasn't reached the pitch of the ball and ends up lobbing it to Rampaul at long-off 105/4
    4.3 Roach strikes back. Timber. Goes wide of the crease, fires in a quick full delivery. There is no swing or seam on this, but Hafeez has completely missed the line. Hit plumb on the back foot before the ball ricochets onto the stumps 14/2
    6.1 the short ball has got Shafiq. Hit on the glove once, hit on the shoulder of the bat once, and now he has cut this straight to third man. Roach bounces him again, it is about shoulder high, with a short leg in place. Shafiq hasn't been leaving them alone, and the fend with a short leg in place can be dangerous. So he cuts, and cuts in the air, straight down third man's throat. Superb move to bring the short leg in 15/3

    29.5 soft dismissal. Golden duck. good field placement, though. Hard hands by Malik as the ball dips on him, he fails to keep it down and Bravo takes the catch at short midwicket 106/5
    31.5 carrom ball. Akmal has not picked it, and has edged it. It is short, Akmal thinks he can cut it, but he is playing for the offbreak, and thus ends up edging it off the lower part of the bat 110/6
    36.1 Wahab is run out for backing up too far. Slower ball, on off, driven hard and back down the ground. Bravo stretches out to try to field, and gets a touch on it. The ball hits the stumps at the non-striker's end, and Riaz is well out. Please don't call this unfortunate. If you are backing up, you are open to consequences 128/7
    37.5 Ajmal is run out. heaved away straight to Pollard at midwicket, Ajmal wants one, but Misbah doesn't want it, and Ajmal is caught in the middle of the wicket 136/8
    40.3 Gayle, you beauty. Slower offcutter, Junaid sees a flighted delivery and can't hold himself back. The edge seems it is flying over slip, but Gayle takes a couple of steps back and takes it overhead and behind his body. Superb catch. As he is falling down, he makes sure he doesn't land on his elbow, which can make the ball pop out 138/9
    47.6 Rampaul, you century-denier, you. The perfect short ball, towards Irfan's chest, he can't get out of its way, and gloves it up in the air. Taken nonchalantly at that short leg. Spare a thought for Misbah. Irfan fought hard to help his captain, and is gutted 170/10

    16.6 the doosra. Gayle has not picked it. On a length, outside off, Gayle wants to go back over the bowler's head, but the ball turns in to beat the inside edge by a mile and hits the middle stump 78/3
    2.4 Charles plays at this without looking at this. This is a bouncer, headed towards his helmet, Charles is looking towards mid-on when he hooks it. Taken at fine leg 11/1
    4.2 Irfan you tall beauty. This is good short-pitched bowling. We might still have a cracker tonight. That is hardly short of a length, but has risen towards the chest, and Bravo tries to drop his bottom hand while fending, but ends up edging it behind 15/2
    25.1 Hafeez has got the huge wicket. Samuels has run past one. Quick ball, outside off, on a length, drifts away from Samuels to leave his stranded. Superb bowling. No turn, just the drift away, and the quick pace 94/5
    17.6 terrific delivery. Dug in short, but not too short, gets it to rise higher than the chest. Sarwan is fending uncomfortably, and edges it through to the keeper. Never in control of the bounce. What a match this is turning out to be 81/4
    35.3 Riaz strikes. This game is alive still. Extra bounce for Riaz. He has bowled his heart out today. Short of a length, steep bounce, on off, rises towards the chest again, and takes the edge through. Shoulder of the bat. A good restrained hand from Pollard 137/6
    36.5 brain fade for Bravo. He has batted so well for so long, so calmly, but sees this flighted delivery and throws the works at it. This is cleverly bowled. Slow through the air, flighted, dipping, turning in from outside off. Beats the huge sweep, hits him in front of off. This is plumb. Bravo reviews it because he is the last recognised batsman, but this is plumb. Game on 143/7

    39.2 Pakistan stay alive. This game stays alive. Long live ODI. Narine backs away to drive, the ball is not short enough, the extra bounce gets the edge. Akmal hasn't dropped anything today, he is not about to now 165/8
