West Indies v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 2 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)

1.1

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, no run, Samuels stays back to a length ball, drives it to cover

1.2

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, FOUR, short, wide, pretty easy, and cut away to the right of backward point

1.3

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, 1 run, short of a length, on the stumps, Samuels still manages to open the face and guide it to third man

1.4

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, FOUR, goes full and fast but also goes too straight, and Gayle nudges it down to fine leg

1.5

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, short of a length, rising towards the chest, defended in front of the chest

1.6

Mohammad Irfan to Gayle, no run, full, on off, defended from the crease

West Indies 12/1   Mohammad Irfan 1-0-9-0

3.1

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, no run, short, not too wide, beats his cut with a little extra bounce

3.2

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, FOUR, nice shot. This time Samuels makes a slight forward movement, but stands tall as Irfan pitches short and cuts this through point

3.3

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, FOUR, Doesn't matter the number of fielders. Samuels has split those three fielders in the point region. Backs away a little to create his own room and cut this from the line of off

3.4

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, no run, Irfan might have gone round the stumps but he is still pitching short, and has been cut away again. This time, though, Shehzad does the fielding at backward point

3.5

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, no run, spongy bounce this time on the shortish ball. Might have been the slower ball too. Beats his push

3.6

Mohammad Irfan to Samuels, SIX, this time Samuels says you can stack that point region all you want, because I can go over them too. Rises with the bounce, takes this from chest-high, and upper-cuts it over point

West Indies 27/2   Mohammad Irfan 2-0-23-0

19.1

Mohammad Irfan to Pollard, SIX, short of a length, Pollard seems to be expecting it, backs away and lofts it over wide long-on for six

19.2

Mohammad Irfan to Pollard, 2 runs, full toss, into the pads, wide of long-on, and even though Sammy has dropped his bat a misfield allows them a second

19.3

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

19.4

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

19.5

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

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   Mohammad Irfan 3-0-39-1
