Pakistan tour of West Indies, 1st ODI: West Indies v Pakistan at Providence, Jul 14, 2013
Pakistan won by 126 runs
14 July 2013 (50-over match)

Mohammad Irfan to Charles, OUT, full toss at the base of off. Charles has missed it. What a first ball to get. A near yorker from that height at 146ks. Before Charles can say hello, the off stump is uprooted. Irfan is running in circles in celebration

J Charles b Mohammad Irfan 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 1/1   CH Gayle 0* (1b)   Mohammad Irfan 0.2-0-0-1

Mohammad Irfan to DM Bravo, OUT, Bravo is, like the man he tries to emulate, walking. Extra bounce again. Short of a length, rising into the ribs, Bravo wants to get inside the line and work it away, but is strangled down the leg side, and gloves it through

DM Bravo c †Umar Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 5 (17m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 27.77

West Indies 7/2   CH Gayle 1* (8b)   Mohammad Irfan 2.3-2-4-2

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, OUT, Gayle can't run. Not sure why he tried this single when he knows he can't run fast anymore. Samuels pushes it towards cover, and is anxious to get off the mark. Gayle hesitates before going, but even if he had set off immediately he couldn't have beaten Misbah's direct hit at his pace

CH Gayle run out 1 (23m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

West Indies 7/3   MN Samuels 0* (3b)   Mohammad Irfan 3-2-4-2

Shahid Afridi to Simmons, OUT, Has Simmons dragged the back foot? Lovely delivery. A quick legbreak that dips on him, drawing him forward and then spinning past the edge. Akmal is quick with the stumping. Simmons has dragged his foot onto the crease. I don't see any part of the toe behind the line, but it is up to the third umpire on how he interprets the pictures. He agrees with me. Given

LMP Simmons st †Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 10 (69m 46b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.73

West Indies 41/4   MN Samuels 21* (60b 2x4)   Shahid Afridi 1.1-0-3-1

Shahid Afridi to DJ Bravo, OUT, and with one come two for Afridi. Absolutely sensational comeback by Afridi. No. 350 too. Afridi knows Bravo might be mindful of the legbreak that he had bowled previously, and slips in the quicker slider to catch him dead in front. The Boris-Becker celebration is back. How good to see it back

DJ Bravo lbw b Shahid Afridi 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 41/5   MN Samuels 21* (60b 2x4)   Shahid Afridi 1.2-0-3-2

Shahid Afridi to Pollard, OUT, Afridi juts his chest out again, and his team-mates surround him again. Pollard's horror home season continues. Drills a legbreak straight down long-off's throat. West Indies' two captains this season have failed yet again. And they removed Sammy

KA Pollard c Wahab Riaz b Shahid Afridi 3 (16m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

West Indies 50/6   MN Samuels 25* (73b 2x4)   Shahid Afridi 3.1-0-5-3

Shahid Afridi to Samuels, OUT, appeal for pad first, Reifell says pad first. Quick legbreak again, pitches middle and leg, straightens,is headed towards off, hits the pad first, and has been rightly given out lbw. Afridi raises his arms in elation again. Lala in line for five

MN Samuels lbw b Shahid Afridi 25 (98m 75b 2x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

West Indies 51/7   DJG Sammy 1* (11b)   Shahid Afridi 4.2-0-6-4

Shahid Afridi to Roach, OUT, easy does it. That's five for Afridi. Where were you, Shahid? We have missed you. Tosses this up in the air, slower too, gets a leading edge from Roach, which comes back at him for a comfortable catch. That's the third time Afridi has taken five and scored a fifty in the same match. No one else has ever done it even twice

KAJ Roach c & b Shahid Afridi 1 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

West Indies 55/8   DJG Sammy 2* (16b)   Shahid Afridi 5.4-1-6-5

Shahid Afridi to Narine, OUT, No. 6 for Afridi. Where was he hiding all this while? Short of a length, outside off, stops at him a touch, lobbed to short cover. This is Afridi's personal best, and the best figures by anybody in West Indies

SP Narine c Nasir Jamshed b Shahid Afridi 14 (40m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 45.16

West Indies 98/9   DJG Sammy 21* (43b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 8.2-3-12-6

Shahid Afridi to Holder, OUT, it's all over. Afridi has seven. One of the all-time great performances in an ODI. Holder is playing for the legbreak, but this is the slider, and he is caught in front of off and on the back foot. No need to even appeal for this. West Indies' lowest total against Pakistan, and their worst score against any team at home. These are the second-biggest figures ever in an ODI. And a fifty to go with it

JO Holder lbw b Shahid Afridi 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 98/10   DJG Sammy 21* (43b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 9-3-12-7
