6.4

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, 1 run, and had mid-on not been moved back, this would have been an easy catch for him. Pollard drives again, powerfully so, but he can't keep it down. Bounces short of long-on. They take only one despite a diving save at the boundary

West Indies 47/4   KA Pollard 5* (2b 1x4)

Shahid Afridi to Pollard, no run, appeal for pad first as this has been fired in at 102ks. Would have been plumb had Pollard not got an inside edge

16.3

Mohammad Irfan to Pollard, 1 run, finally a yorker. Dug out. Sammy is backing up a long way. He is halfway up the wicket when the ball touches bat. Easy single for him

19.6

Mohammad Irfan to Pollard, 1 run, OUT, 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

SP Narine run out 0 (2m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

West Indies 152/7   KA Pollard 49* (36b 4x4 2x6)
