Saeed Ajmal to Bravo, FOUR, Jamshed misfields at the boundary. Punched to the right of deep point, Jamshed gets there, but is slow in getting down

West Indies 69/4   DJ Bravo 15* (14b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 1.2-0-8-0

Saeed Ajmal to Pollard, FOUR, just a flick but this is a half-volley, and Pollard doesn't spare half-volleys. Drilled back over Ajmal's head

West Indies 84/4   KA Pollard 24* (18b 2x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 3-0-15-0

Junaid Khan to Pollard, FOUR, full, angling into the pads, nicely wristed away through square leg for four. Pollard has punished everything that has been loose today

West Indies 103/5   KA Pollard 36* (28b 4x4 1x6)   Junaid Khan 1.4-0-10-0

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)   Junaid Khan 2-0-14-0

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

West Indies 134/5   DJG Sammy 22* (11b 2x4 2x6)   Junaid Khan 2.5-0-32-0
