View dismissal DM Richards c & b Mohammad Amir 1 2 4 0 0 25.00
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
View dismissal ADS Fletcher c Imran Nazir b Naved-ul-Hasan 7 17 14 1 0 50.00
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
View dismissal DS Smith c Umar Akmal b Umar Gul 18 43 28 2 0 64.28
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
View dismissal TM Dowlin c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
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
View dismissal FL Reifer* c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 7 47 23 0 0 30.43
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
View dismissal DE Bernard b Mohammad Amir 6 10 14 1 0 42.85
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
View dismissal DJG Sammy b Saeed Ajmal 25 44 37 5 0 67.56
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
View dismissal CAK Walton lbw b Umar Gul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
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
View dismissal NO Miller c Shoaib Malik b Shahid Afridi 51 73 57 6 1 89.47
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
