Pakistan won by 2 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)
27 July 2013 (20-over match)

Junaid Khan to Sammy, no run, short of a length, just outside off, defended to cover


Junaid Khan to Sammy, 1 run, Sammy looks to pull, gets a bottom edge onto the hip


Junaid Khan to Sammy, FOUR, swirling hit. That is some power. This is a half-volley. Sammy goes deep into the crease to bulldoze it back. Starts on the leg side of the stumps at the non-striker's end, but swerves so much with the force that it ends up at long-off

West Indies 108/5   DJG Sammy 5* (3b 1x4)

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, no run, flighted outside off, angles away to beat the outside edge


Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, 1 run, shortish, tucked away off the hip


Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, no run, doosra. Starts outside leg. Sammy picks it only off the pitch. Defends


Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, no run, short of a length, quick, angling away, beats Sammy's attempt at punching this into the off side

West Indies 116/5   DJG Sammy 6* (7b 1x4)

Junaid Khan to Sammy, SIX, Sammy has picked the slower ball early, sized it up, and smoked it out. He pushes the weight onto the back foot, gets under the length ball, and smashes this over wide long-on. Somebody return the ball please


Junaid Khan to Sammy, 1 wide, wide full toss. This is clearly a wide, but Nero raises the batsmen's eyebrows by calling it very late


Junaid Khan to Sammy, no run, another full toss but this time it is closer to off, and does the job well: to stay away from Sammy, who is backing away


Junaid Khan to Sammy, SIX, dropped by Amin. This is full, into the pads, and has been lofted towards the cow corner. Amin comes around from deep midwicket, the catch is high to his left, but he has parried it over the bar


Junaid Khan to Sammy, FOUR, Junaid looks to go full and wide as Sammy looks to back away, but the batsman does well to drill this wide of cover for four


Junaid Khan to Sammy, 2 runs, slower ball, bunted into the leg side, straight to deep midwicket, but Sammy is one of the best with converting ones into twos. He puts his head down, and takes what seems a suicidal second. The throw is flat, full, stump high, and straight, but Sammy has beaten it

West Indies 136/5   DJG Sammy 24* (12b 2x4 2x6)

Mohammad Irfan to Sammy, SIX, yorker gone wrong. Knee-high full toss. There is no room, but somehow Sammy has lofted this clean over long-on for a six. He keeps pumping his fist after every such shot


Mohammad Irfan to Sammy, OUT, 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

DJG Sammy c Hammad Azam b Mohammad Irfan 30 (17m 14b 2x4 3x6) SR: 214.28

West Indies 151/6   DJG Sammy 30 (14b 2x4 3x6)
