12,13,14,15 May 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Rampaul to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, bowled him! West Indies have struck early and the in-form Hafeez is on his way. He wasn't sure what he wanted to do with that ball. It landed back of a length outside off and held its line, may be moved away marginally. Hafeez got half across and then decided to leave. He was weaving the bat away, but an instant too late, and it hit the inside edge to crash into the castle.

Mohammad Hafeez b Rampaul 4 (6m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Pakistan 5/1   Taufeeq Umar 0* (1b)   R Rampaul 0.2-0-0-1

Sammy to Taufeeq Umar, OUT, Another one angles into the pads, Umar misses it and is hit on the pads. He's given lbw and has referred it immediately. Sammy's worked on this leg and middle line in the last few overs, and this time Umar's a little lazy with the hands as he looks to work it across. The front foot is too far across and he looks to play round the pads. Would have been better off defending with a straight bat. That hit in front of middle and off, and was clipping leg. Good enough. Umar goes, and with him Pakistan lose a review.

Taufeeq Umar lbw b Sammy 19 (94m 62b 2x4 0x6) SR: 30.64

Pakistan 57/2   Azhar Ali 33* (65b 5x4)   DJG Sammy 6.2-4-8-1

Bishoo to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Bishoo, take a bow! What a wicket to get as your first one in Tests, and what a lovely, lovely ball! It's the flipper from Bishoo, he's not bowled it so far today, and slips it in completely without warning. It is landed just short of a length on middle and Misbah leans back languidly to cut. Mistake. The ball torpedoes straight towards middle stump and Misbah's pad is in the way. As they say, couldn't have been plumber if he works with pipes and taps. Well done, Bishoo and this Test match is crackling now.

Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Bishoo 2 (11m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

Pakistan 60/3   Azhar Ali 34* (69b 5x4)   D Bishoo 5.1-2-10-1

Sammy to Azhar Ali, OUT, clatter. Shades of Michael Clarke in the 2007 World Cup. It's a back of a length ball on off stump, holding its line and nipping in a touch since Sammy rolled his fingers over it. Very friendly pace. The sort of ball you push back down the track. We all thought Azhar would do the needful. What did he do? He shouldered his arms. He surely didn't know where his off stump was. A moment later, it was straightened. Weird as they come. Sammy's nipped out two big wickets.

Azhar Ali b Sammy 34 (106m 73b 5x4 0x6) SR: 46.57

Pakistan 62/4   Asad Shafiq 2* (5b)   DJG Sammy 8.4-4-9-2

Bishoo to Asad Shafiq, OUT, lbw appeal turned down, and referred after a delay. Flat legspinner, pushed across towards leg stump and it straightens into Shafiq quickly. He is forward and looks to defend with bat and pad close together. The ball thudded into his pad, and on first sight it looked like it must have either been landing outside leg stump, or heading down the leg side. And then the replays come on. It landed on leg. And it was hitting leg, 3-4ths of the way up! Bowden reverses his decision and gives him the crooked finger. Pakistan have lost half their side!

Asad Shafiq lbw b Bishoo 2 (10m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Pakistan 66/5   Umar Akmal 4* (2b 1x4)   D Bishoo 7-3-12-2

Bishoo to Mohammad Salman, OUT, Given lbw by Bowden, and Salman reviews it. Bishoo is wreaking havoc on debut. His angle, from wide of the crease, is creating a lot of problems, since he's getting the legbreaks to straighten rather than go away. The Pakistanis have struggled to get used to that technicality. This one angles in and lands on off and straightens. Salman fronts up for a half-cock defensive with bat and pad together. Bat was waiting for it to turn away, and it did not. It went straight and thudded into the pads. Would have hit top of off. Bishoo wins the battle of the debutants.

Mohammad Salman lbw b Bishoo 4 (29m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Pakistan 80/6   Umar Akmal 14* (27b 3x4)   D Bishoo 10.1-4-23-3

Bishoo to Umar Akmal, OUT, the story of Umar Akmal's career. What a tragedy.. So much promise, mingled with so much needless petulance. Bishoo's struck with one of his more ordinary balls. It's dropped quite short, on off stump line and breaking away. A rush of blood into Akmal's head, and he goes for the extravagant pull. Mistake. Top edge. Balloons up. Goes nowhere. Baugh's gloves cradle it when it comes down. See you later, Umar Akmal.

Umar Akmal c †Baugh b Bishoo 33 (108m 75b 4x4 0x6) SR: 44.00

Pakistan 130/7   Abdur Rehman 23* (66b 2x4)   D Bishoo 20-6-50-4

Rampaul to Umar Gul, OUT, another one bites the dust. Pakistan are 'pulling' themselves into trouble. This was probably not short enough, but it was slanting down the leg side. Should Gul have been glancing instead? He was on the front foot, and then wanted to pull himself back, and then went for the pull despite not being in any position to play the shot and got a top edge that bobbed up and landed in Baugh's gloves easily. Trouble for Pakistan here. First-innings runs are going to be crucial on this track.

Umar Gul c †Baugh b Rampaul 5 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Pakistan 135/8   Abdur Rehman 23* (73b 2x4)   R Rampaul 14.2-3-24-2

Rampaul to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, Lbw appeal turned down by Tony Hill, and Sammy refers it. First call - I thought that was plumb. It's one of Rampaul's regulation balls that come in with his skiddy angle. Ajmal got half forward and tried to defend it as it landed outside off and came in. Could not get bat on it. Hit in front of off, and that was taking out leg stump. Pakistan are nine down.

Saeed Ajmal lbw b Rampaul 1 (11m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Pakistan 141/9   Abdur Rehman 27* (81b 2x4)   R Rampaul 15.5-4-26-3

Roach to Wahab Riaz, OUT, Roach has finished them off with a gem of a delivery. Angles in from wide of the stumps and straightens from outside off, inviting Riaz to drive and then squaring him up to take the edge. Only worry was whether it carried to the keeper, and it did. WI lead by 66. Crucial.

Wahab Riaz c †Baugh b Roach 5 (25m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Pakistan 160/10   Abdur Rehman 40* (104b 4x4)   KAJ Roach 10.4-2-40-1
