    0.3 gone! Nazir was trying to drive through the off side and the thinnest of edges is enough to remove him - an easy catch for Ramdin behind the sticks. It's all going on in the first over 6/1
    10.3 gottim! Hafeez, looking to go over the top, goes instead straight to the man at mid-on with a soft catch. West Indies very much on top at this stage - but let's remember that Pakistan have the awesome Yousuf still in, and now here's Inzy to the crease, he's never easy to shift 39/3
    3.6 gone! That delivery reared high enough to be able to leave but Khan can't resist slashing an attempted hook at it. He misses and a top edge flies through - and that's a very sunny Ramdin who snaps up the catch, his second of the innings so far 17/2
    28.6 Yousuf goes to Smith's obvious delight. A little short, the ball climbed on him and seamed back in, cramping him for room and an outside edge spat through to Ramdin to give him his third catch of the innings. Pakistan were cruising ... now they have work to do 99/4
    32.4 inducker and that's as plumb as you like - and Smith certainly does like - whooping as Taufel raises the finger. Hawk-Eye suggests that the ball may have been going over, but Inzamam is on his way and this could be the turning point 116/5
    47.2 Shoaib steps back and looks to send the ball into the harbour but gets under it and Chanderpaul coming in from long-off takes the steepler. He is mobbed by delighted fielders and unlike 2003, when West Indies proved to be party poopers, the hosts have won the opening match 187/10
    32.5 ...no he can't because he's gone! Akmal slashed low to gully and that's a fantastic catch. Smith on a hat-trick now, no pressure then for Naved 116/6
    40.2 Bravo cleans up Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, completing a miserable day for the Pakistan allrounder. Pitched up, Naved-ul-Hasan swung across the line, got a thick inside edge and dragged the ball into his stumps. Bravo wheeled away in celebration as the batsman skulked off 144/7
    46.5 Iftikhar chips a full toss from a slower delivery to Lara at extra cover where he takes the catch high above his head 187/8
    46.6 you won't see many better catches than that! A full toss driven firmly back to the left of Bravo who stuck out a hand and held the ball at full stretch no more than 18 inches above the ground in his follow through. A jubilant Bravo sprints into the deep pursued by team-mates ... 187/9
