Pakistan in West Indies T20I Series - 1st T20I

West Indies v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 2 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)

4.1

Zulfiqar Babar to Simmons, no run, goes wide of the crease, angles one in, beats the inside edge, hits the pad, but is headed down leg

4.2

Zulfiqar Babar to Simmons, SIX, not a warm welcome to Babar. He goes wide of the crease again, doesn't try to turn the ball much, and Simmons plays the pick-up shot to send this length ball over wide long-on

4.3

Zulfiqar Babar to Simmons, no run, angling in, defended again

4.4

Zulfiqar Babar to Simmons, OUT, now that one has turned. And the top of off has been hit. Extra revs on this. Babar might have dragged this a little short, but the ball rips away after pitching middle and off, squares Simmons up, and bowls him. Beats him by a long distance too. Bear in mind he is bowling from wide of the crease

LMP Simmons b Zulfiqar Babar 6 (8m 5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

4.5

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, FOUR, fires into the pads from his wide angle, at 86ks, nicely deflected away fine of short fine leg

4.6

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, no run, flighted, but this doesn't turn and hits the inside half of the defensive bat

West Indies 37/3   Zulfiqar Babar 1-0-10-1

6.1

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, 1 run, Bravo plays for the turn, the ball doesn't, hits the inside half of the bat for a single

6.2

Zulfiqar Babar to Samuels, OUT, huge wicket on debut. Samuels has been hitting every bowler around. And he has been caught-and-bowled. What a debut for Babar. Samuels, like he did with Afridi during the ODIs, charges down, takes this on a half-volley and drills one down the ground. This time, though, he has hit it straight back at Babar, who is alert and quick to take it with both hands. Comes at a comfortable height but an uncomfortable pace. He has hurt his left hand while taking the catch

MN Samuels c & b Zulfiqar Babar 25 (23m 22b 4x4 1x6) SR: 113.63

6.3

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, FOUR, Pollard hits back first ball. Length ball, flat, middle and leg, and Pollard drives this between the bowler and mid-on

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

6.5

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, no run, sharp turn now. Only the second one he has turned today, but that's all you need in T20 if you are accurate. Beaten

6.6

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, 1 run, more dozey running. Hit wide of deep cover, but they take just the one

West Indies 48/4   Zulfiqar Babar 2-0-17-2

8.1

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, 1 run, pushed wide of point for one

8.2

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, no run, length ball, on off, defended to cover

8.3

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, 2 runs, Pollard nearly gets himself out. He is not backing himself to play solid cricket. Throws his arms at a length ball, in front of his body, and skies it towards cover. It falls short of the fielder, though

8.4

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, no run, this one turns, and past the edge it goes

8.5

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, 1 run, arm ball, Pollard plays a late dab, gets a single to short third. Finally, some smooth running

8.6

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, no run, flighted outside off, holds its line, bounces too, ad beats the outside edge

West Indies 55/4   Zulfiqar Babar 3-0-21-2

15.1

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, no run, and he gets turn and bounce as he bowls slowly, and beats his outside edge

15.2

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, 1 run, this one angles in, goes off the inside half of the bat

15.3

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, 1 run, short of a length, turning away, punched down to long-off for one

15.4

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, no run, short again, but this time he finds the straight extra cover

15.5

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, OUT, Bravo tries a really difficult shot. The back-foot drive over cover for six. If there is any man who hits it in today's cricket, it is Bravo. This time, though, he has taken on too much even though he has hit it with the wind. Ajmal moves to his right at deep cover to complete the catch. Taken over his shoulder with the wind taking the ball away

DJ Bravo c Saeed Ajmal b Zulfiqar Babar 25 (40m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

15.6

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, no run, this one doesn't turn, angles in, beats the inside edge, hits his pad. Superb debut for Babar: 4-0-23-3

West Indies 98/5   Zulfiqar Babar 4-0-23-3
