View dismissal J Charles b Mohammad Hafeez 1 1 2 0 0 50.00
0.3 57.2 mph, beaten in the flight, and we have timbahhhhh. Hafeez has seen Charles advancing, I think, and he shortens his length. Charles still appears in charge, but he plays the defensive shot for the offbreak. The ball doesn't turn, and hits the off stump 2/1
View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 5 10 6 1 0 83.33
2.5 Gayle won't be hitting into the sea tonight. Hafeez has got him. Hafeez stays full and around middle and off, Gayle plays a defensive, but the bat is either hidden behind or is playing for an offbreak. This one goes with the angle, and Gayle seems pretty plumb despite that big stride of his 13/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c & b Zulfiqar Babar 25 23 22 4 1 113.63
6.2 54.7 mph, huge wicket on debut. Samuels has been hitting every bowler around. And he has been caught-and-bowled. What a debut for Babar. Samuels, like he did with Afridi during the ODIs, charges down, takes this on a half-volley and drills one down the ground. This time, though, he has hit it straight back at Babar, who is alert and quick to take it with both hands. Comes at a comfortable height but an uncomfortable pace. He has hurt his left hand while taking the catch 42/4
View dismissal LMP Simmons b Zulfiqar Babar 6 8 5 0 1 120.00
4.4 55.6 mph, now that one has turned. And the top of off has been hit. Extra revs on this. Babar might have dragged this a little short, but the ball rips away after pitching middle and off, squares Simmons up, and bowls him. Beats him by a long distance too. Bear in mind he is bowling from wide of the crease 33/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Saeed Ajmal b Zulfiqar Babar 25 40 35 2 0 71.42
15.5 54.9 mph, Bravo tries a really difficult shot. The back-foot drive over cover for six. If there is any man who hits it in today's cricket, it is Bravo. This time, though, he has taken on too much even though he has hit it with the wind. Ajmal moves to his right at deep cover to complete the catch. Taken over his shoulder with the wind taking the ball away 98/5
KA Pollard not out 49 53 36 4 2 136.11
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Hammad Azam b Mohammad Irfan 30 17 14 2 3 214.28
19.5 77.3 mph, this time he has gone into the wind. Irfan goes short, Sammy goes hard, and hooks with the front leg in the air. The wind holds it up, though, and he is taken at deep midwicket 151/6
View dismissal SP Narine run out (Ahmed Shehzad/Mohammad Irfan) 0 2 0 0 0 -
19.6 Mohammad Irfan to Pollard, poor from Narine. This is hit down the ground, to the left of long-on, and there is no way the non-striker shouldn't make it for the second. Sammy would have made this comfortably. Narine is run out by a mile. Had he been as intentful as Sammy, he might have got Pollard a deserved fifty 152/7

View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Simmons b Gabriel 6 4 4 0 1 150.00
0.4 88.0 mph, keeps hitting into the wind. Gone. The last short-arm pull beat the deep midwicket to his left, and reached the rope on the half-volley, but this one isn't that well placed and has stood up in the wind. Simmons takes a smart catch the boundary. Can't say the same about the batting 7/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Pollard b Badree 3 9 6 0 0 50.00
1.4 58.2 mph, this is not smart batting at all. Shehzad knows the two men in the deep are long-on and deep midwicket, and he still goes long-on. All he manages to do is offer a low catch to Pollard at long-on 10/2
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* c Gabriel b Narine 13 19 7 3 0 185.71
4.5 60.8 mph, looks like a soft dismissal but you can see what Hafeez was doing here. He picked the carrom ball, which shortish and widish. He tried to late-cut it, but failed to keep it down and cut him straight to short third man 45/3
View dismissal Umar Amin st †Charles b Samuels 47 41 34 9 0 138.23
11.1 59.2 mph, Samuels has got him. Amin has walked past one. Those easy boundary balls dried up, and Amin has thrown it away. Not sure he needed to. The asking rate was in control. Down the wicket to try to drive him wide of long-off, and doesn't reach the pitch of the ball, which turns past the bat to leave him stranded 86/5
View dismissal Umar Akmal run out (Sammy) 9 13 9 1 0 100.00
8.2 from Best, Sammy - who else, really? - turns it around for West Indies in the field. You couldn't imagine any other man turning this lethargic fielding effort around. Short of a length, Akmal is deep inside the crease as he pushes this towards short midwicket. He still goes for the single, Sammy has about one-and-a-half stumps to aim at. He hits. Akmal is out 77/4
View dismissal Hammad Azam c Pollard b Gabriel 10 27 15 0 0 66.66
14.6 86.3 mph, wicket No. 2 for Gabriel. Pollard does his bit in the field. Not the smartest of the shots. This is the highest short ball Gabriel has bowled. Azam is nowhere near being in control of it, but goes ahead with the hook. Pollard charges in from deep square leg, and takes a low catch diving forward. This has been a match of gifts and return gifts. Still going on 116/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Bravo b Gabriel 46 36 27 4 2 170.37
18.2 Gabriel gives Sammy the wicket, but is it too late? Length ball outside off, Afridi can see the end of the match there, and he goes hard at it. Except he gets too under it, and skies it towards long-off where Bravo calls early and Sammy stays away. Good fielding under pressure 145/7
Zulfiqar Babar not out 13 27 17 1 1 76.47
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal run out (Simmons) 0 7 1 0 0 0.00
19.5 from Samuels, the game is alive still. Ajmal drives and runs. Straight to mid-off it has gone. Simmons lets it rip, and finds Ajmal short. At least AJmal has given Babar the strike 152/8
