Zulfiqar Babar to Simmons, 1 run, that's the one that goes on with the arm and it beats the defence and hits the pad

6.6

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, no run, a huge, huge appeal. The Pakistan players cannot believe it hasn't been given. I'll have more detail for you in a moment. the ball skidded into the right-hander and the ball hit the top of the pad and lodged in Akmal's gloves. Akmal was convinced about the catch (or maybe it was the lbw?) and so he charged towards the umpire, not realising Bravo was well out of the crease and he could have stumped him

End of over 7 (2 runs) West Indies 15/3 (121 runs required from 13 overs, RR: 2.14, RRR: 9.30)

Asad R: "After a poor ODI series in South Africa and then a miserable CT13 campaign, it's very nice to see the Pakistani boys giving such great performances."

Dr. Dot: "Wow. The Windies are in quite the bind. They don't seem to be able to get any momentum going before they end up with another serving of their backsides given to them on a silver platter."

Shahid Afridi to Narine, 1 run, played off the back foot through square leg

10.6

Saeed Ajmal to Bravo, 1 run, flicked off the front foot through midwicket

End of over 11 (3 runs) West Indies 41/4 (95 runs required from 54 balls, RR: 3.72, RRR: 10.55)

Asad Ali to bowl his first over, from over the wicket.

11.1

Asad Ali to Bravo, no run, his first ball is a poor one, down leg side, Bravo tries to pull and misses. The umpire does not call it wide. It should have been one

11.2

Asad Ali to Bravo, 2 runs, Bravo makes room by moving outside leg and throws his bat at a short of a length ball outside off, he makes contact with the bottom of the bat and sends the ball over cover, it plugs in the outfield

11.3

Asad Ali to Bravo, FOUR, he leans into a fuller ball and plays an exquisite drive through extra cover, he transferred his weight into the shot and hammered it

11.4

Asad Ali to Bravo, no run, in the blockhole and Bravo hops around in pain after he jams it out

Rupesh: "I don't understand this tactics of holding Pollard back, first by Mumbai Indians and now by WIs. Do the teams feel that he is only good for 5-6 overs and does not even have the grind to stay for 12-15 overs ??"

11.5

DJ Bravo    29* (33b 2x4 1x6)      Asad Ali    1-0-7-0

mngc: "Narine can hit the ball better than raw stats show. Interesting move to put the right - left combination to throw the bowlers off."

13.1

Saeed Ajmal to Narine, FOUR, that's high, but has it gone far enough? Afridi's on the edge of the backward square leg boundary and I think he has misjudged it. The ball falls beyond his outstretched hand behind his head and pitches just inside the boundary. He thought he was much closer to the rope than he actually was. Narine had gone deep into his crease and heaved at the ball

13.2

Saeed Ajmal to Narine, no run, Narine charges and flat bats the ball towards the bowler, Ajmal moves to his left and fields

13.3

Saeed Ajmal to Narine, OUT, there's no mis-judgement this time! Narine heaved at the ball and hit it straight to Umar Amin at long-on, he had to run in to take the catch. Narine's done the job he was sent to do though

SP Narine c Umar Amin b Saeed Ajmal 28 (23m 16b 3x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

Pollard comes in with 72 needed off 39 balls.

Saeed Ajmal to Bravo, 1 run, steps out of his crease and works the ball through midwicket

Ahsan Bhatti: "Bold move from Pollard to wear a watch, I speak from personal experience when I say that if the ball hits it, it's game over for the watch and your wrist."

15.4

Saeed Ajmal to Pollard, 1 run, driven off the back foot towards point, Afridi moves to his left and fields

15.5

Saeed Ajmal to Bravo, no run, Bravo makes room by moving towards leg and tries to blast over the off side, he misses

15.6

Saeed Ajmal to Bravo, 2 runs, played along the ground to deep square leg and the second run is extremely risky, the throw from the deep is wide of the stumps though and Bravo's bat is just over the line by the time Akmal breaks them. It's an extremely close call, and after several replays the third umpire rules in Bravo's favour.

End of over 16 (5 runs) West Indies 74/5 (62 runs required from 24 balls, RR: 4.62, RRR: 15.50)
DJ Bravo    35* (43b 2x4 1x6)      Saeed Ajmal    3-0-13-1
KA Pollard    3* (5b)      Zulfiqar Babar    3-0-17-0

16.1

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, SIX, that's a massive hit! Pollard charges the bowler and Babar delivers right into the hitting zone, Pollard frees those huge arms and gives it a mighty whack, sending the ball high and far over long-on, it's out of the ground and they will need a new ball. The old one is on the roof.

16.2

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, FOUR, another muscular hit straight down the ground and it beats the boundary riders, he backed away outside leg and smashed it

16.3

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, SIX, they will need another ball now! This one has gone miles! Pollard charged the bowler again, got to the pitch of the ball and hammered it straight, and so high that it cleared the roof this time. They've got the old one back, so they will replace the new ball with the old ball

16.4

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, FOUR, that's a fine stop by Azam at long-off, but hang on, he fumbles it because of the speed of the ball and it goes over the boundary. Pollard had backed away to leg and hit the ball hard down the ground

16.5

Zulfiqar Babar to Pollard, OUT, this time he holes out! Pollard made room by moving outside leg but instead of hitting straight, which is where he was aiming, he ended up slicing the ball over cover. Haris came in from the boundary and judged the catch well

KA Pollard c Haris Sohail b Zulfiqar Babar 23 (17m 10b 2x4 2x6) SR: 230.00

16.6

Zulfiqar Babar to Bravo, OUT, after conceding all those runs, Babar's taken out both batsmen! Bravo made room and tried to clear the wide long-off boundary, he did not hit it far enough and Azam ran to his left from long off and took the catch. And just as quickly as the chase sparked to life, it has fizzled out ...

DJ Bravo c Hammad Azam b Zulfiqar Babar 35 (61m 44b 2x4 1x6) SR: 79.54

End of over 17 (20 runs) West Indies 94/7 (42 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 5.52, RRR: 14.00)
     Zulfiqar Babar    4-0-37-2
DJG Sammy    0* (0b)      Saeed Ajmal    3-0-13-1

17.1

Shahid Afridi to Barnwell, FOUR, I think that's missed everything, the bat, the pads and the keeper and run to the boundary. Apparently the batsman got a bit of an edge on that

17.2

Shahid Afridi to Barnwell, FOUR, Barnwell makes great contact, getting on to the front foot and driving fluently to the cover boundary

17.3

Shahid Afridi to Barnwell, 1 run, played towards backward point for a single

17.4

17.5

Shahid Afridi to Barnwell, no run, Afridi thinks he's got him lbw and I think so too, but the umpire does not. Barnwell got down on one knee to slog sweep and missed. He was hit plumb in front on the back leg

17.6

Shahid Afridi to Barnwell, 1 run, OUT, Barnwell's been run out! He played the ball to deep midwicket and ran the single and then hared back for the second, putting in a desperate dive too. The throw from Azam was good and the keeper broke the stumps with Barnwell's stretched bat just short

CD Barnwell run out 10 (6m 5b 2x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

End of over 18 (11 runs) West Indies 105/8 (31 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 5.83, RRR: 15.50)
     Shahid Afridi    3-0-29-1
DJG Sammy    1* (1b)      Zulfiqar Babar    4-0-37-2

18.1

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, no run, this is such ridiculous cricket. Sammy tried to pull the ball over deep midwicket and ended up top edging it straight up in the air. the ball was landing in the middle of the pitch and both the bowler and the keeper went for the catch. They eventually bumped into each other and dropped it

18.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, no run, Sammy tries to heave behind square but misses and is hit on the thigh

18.3

Saeed Ajmal to Sammy, OUT, the ninth wicket falls, Sammy clears his front foot and tries to clear the straight boundary, he only succeeds in hitting it to Afridi at long off

DJG Sammy c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 1 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Badree is the last man ...

Sri: "The top 4 WI batsmen scored 5 of 32 balls! You don't score that slow even in ODIs, much less in T20. They lost the match then and there. Late fireworks is for the crowd. WI can't from here."

18.4

Saeed Ajmal to Best, SIX, Best has hit this far enough! He charged the bowler and muscled the ball over Afridi's head on the long off boundary

18.5

Saeed Ajmal to Best, no run, Ajmal slanted the ball across the right-hander from round the wicket and beat the outside edge. Akmal whipped off the bails and appealed for a stumping. Did Best lift his back leg? He did, but it was back down in time

18.6

Saeed Ajmal to Best, 2 runs, Best charges again and heaves the ball over extra cover, Afridi runs to his left from long off to field

End of over 19 (8 runs) West Indies 113/9 (23 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 5.94, RRR: 23.00)
TL Best    8* (3b 1x6)      Saeed Ajmal    4-0-21-2
S Badree    0* (0b)      Shahid Afridi    3-0-29-1

So West Indies need 23 runs off the last over ... a situation that could make heroes and villians.

19.1

Sohail Tanvir to Badree, (no ball) 1 run, the first ball is a no ball, played to backward point for a single. Free-hit coming up. I'm not sure how that is a no ball. The back foot did not touch the side crease and the front foot was fine.

19.1

Sohail Tanvir to Best, no run, the slower ball outside off stump, Best swings hard but misses

19.2

Sohail Tanvir to Best, 2 runs, clears his front foot and slogs through midwicket, he's not timed it well so they can run two because the fielder has to run in from the boundary to get to the ball

19.3

Sohail Tanvir to Best, SIX, Best is reducing the margin of defeat here, he clears his front leg, gets under a slower ball and blitzes it over the straight boundary. Or have I spoken too soon?

19.4

Sohail Tanvir to Best, no run, it's in the blockhole outside off stump, Best can't get bat on it and he swings his bat in frustration after missing the shot

Gautam: "Its great to see Umar Akmal behind the stumps, energizing the team. Did very well with the bat too today. Been a while since a wicket-keeping Akmal did well for Pakistan on all fronts."

19.5

Sohail Tanvir to Best, no run, it's a slower ball that nearly shaves leg stump after Best fails to connect with his swing

The Pakistan players are allowing themselves a smile now.

19.6

Sohail Tanvir to Best, 1 run, and that's that, Pakistan take the series 2-0. The last ball is carved out through cover for a single

5.15 pm Pakistan move up to No. 2 - behind Sri Lanka - in the ICC rankings for T20 teams. Their bowlers were outstanding today. Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal gave them a par score to defend and the bowlers stifled and dismantled the West Indies top order. The contest was over inside the first six overs of the chase.

That brings to an end Pakistan's fruitful tour of the Caribbean. They go home with an ODI and T20 trophy. For West Indies, a disappointing home season comes to an end. They beat Zimbabwe a few months ago, but did not make the tri-series final (India and Sri Lanka did) and then suffered two series defeats against Pakistan.

Dr. Dot: "That score doesn't come CLOSE to displaying just how badly the Windies got beaten. Sad, really. I feel sorry for their fans."

Ali: "For me Ajmal was the best bowler in the 2nd innings he stopped the runs when the runs were flowing from other end!"

Akhtar Farooq: "Good thing was that we witnessed excellent matches, close contest in ODI and T20. This is what perfect entertainment is."

Here's the presentation ceremony ...

Sammy: "We could have restricted them, but they played well in the end. We lost a lot of wickets in our first six overs, and then it was a difficult task for Pollard and Bravo to come and score at 12-13 runs an over. We just didn't bat well enough at the start. I think we as a batting team have to give ourselves a chance. We have different types of players and I can't tell them how to go about batting, but when you have a difficult pitch, you have to give yourselves a chance and capitalise in the end." Sammy is saying these wickets suit Asian teams touring the Caribbean, slow, dry surfaces that assist spin more than pace.

Umar Akmal is the Man of the Match.

Ali Imt: "Great series this was, pretty close contests. Wish there was a Test series as well, would have been the Icing on the cake."

Zulfiqar Babar, in his debut series, is the Player of the Series.

Hafeez comes up to collect the series trophy. "It was a tough tour, credit goes to the team and the coaches for their hard work. We did not play well in the last two tours so we needed this victory. Once we scored 135, we had four spinners in our team and we were confident. Thanks to Misbah, we got the momentum from the ODI series and carried it into the T20s. I'm really happy to see youngsters coming into the team, like Umar Amin. And Zulfiqar Babar also performed."

And that brings us to the end of this series. We hope you've enjoyed our coverage of it. That's all we've got for you today, thank you for all your emails. It's time to get some sleep. Cheers!
