Pakistan tour of West Indies, 1st T20I: West Indies v Pakistan at Kingstown, Jul 27, 2013
Pakistan won by 2 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)
27 July 2013 (20-over match)

Gabriel to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, keeps hitting into the wind. Gone. The last short-arm pull beat the deep midwicket to his left, and reached the rope on the half-volley, but this one isn't that well placed and has stood up in the wind. Simmons takes a smart catch the boundary. Can't say the same about the batting

Nasir Jamshed c Simmons b Gabriel 6 (4m 4b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Pakistan 7/1   Ahmed Shehzad 0* (0b)   ST Gabriel 0.4-0-7-1

Badree to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, this is not smart batting at all. Shehzad knows the two men in the deep are long-on and deep midwicket, and he still goes long-on. All he manages to do is offer a low catch to Pollard at long-on

Ahmed Shehzad c Pollard b Badree 3 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 10/2   Mohammad Hafeez 0* (0b)   S Badree 0.4-0-0-1

Narine to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, looks like a soft dismissal but you can see what Hafeez was doing here. He picked the carrom ball, which shortish and widish. He tried to late-cut it, but failed to keep it down and cut him straight to short third man

Mohammad Hafeez c Gabriel b Narine 13 (19m 7b 3x4 0x6) SR: 185.71

Pakistan 45/3   Umar Amin 20* (12b 4x4)   SP Narine 0.5-0-9-1

Best to Umar Akmal, OUT, Sammy - who else, really? - turns it around for West Indies in the field. You couldn't imagine any other man turning this lethargic fielding effort around. Short of a length, Akmal is deep inside the crease as he pushes this towards short midwicket. He still goes for the single, Sammy has about one-and-a-half stumps to aim at. He hits. Akmal is out

Umar Akmal run out 9 (13m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 77/4   Umar Amin 42* (24b 9x4)   TL Best 1.2-0-8-0

Samuels to Umar Amin, OUT, Samuels has got him. Amin has walked past one. Those easy boundary balls dried up, and Amin has thrown it away. Not sure he needed to. The asking rate was in control. Down the wicket to try to drive him wide of long-off, and doesn't reach the pitch of the ball, which turns past the bat to leave him stranded

Umar Amin st †Charles b Samuels 47 (41m 34b 9x4 0x6) SR: 138.23

Pakistan 86/5   Hammad Azam 4* (7b)   MN Samuels 2.1-0-10-1

Gabriel to Hammad Azam, OUT, wicket No. 2 for Gabriel. Pollard does his bit in the field. Not the smartest of the shots. This is the highest short ball Gabriel has bowled. Azam is nowhere near being in control of it, but goes ahead with the hook. Pollard charges in from deep square leg, and takes a low catch diving forward. This has been a match of gifts and return gifts. Still going on

Hammad Azam c Pollard b Gabriel 10 (27m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 116/6   Shahid Afridi 24* (15b 2x4 1x6)   ST Gabriel 3-0-34-2

Gabriel to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Gabriel gives Sammy the wicket, but is it too late? Length ball outside off, Afridi can see the end of the match there, and he goes hard at it. Except he gets too under it, and skies it towards long-off where Bravo calls early and Sammy stays away. Good fielding under pressure

Shahid Afridi c Bravo b Gabriel 46 (36m 27b 4x4 2x6) SR: 170.37

Pakistan 145/7   Zulfiqar Babar 2* (8b)   ST Gabriel 3.2-0-42-3

Samuels to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, the game is alive still. Ajmal drives and runs. Straight to mid-off it has gone. Simmons lets it rip, and finds Ajmal short. At least AJmal has given Babar the strike

Saeed Ajmal run out 0 (7m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 152/8   Zulfiqar Babar 7* (16b 1x4)   MN Samuels 3.5-0-27-1
