View dismissal Azhar Ali b Chase 127 490 334 8 2 38.02
106.3 51.1 mph, well, that's that. Will teach him to blindly sweep at an offspinner. The only reason he goes for the shot is because the ball is tossed up. But Chase is able to make the ball dip just enough that the ball pitches before Azhar can reach it and then spins past his whooshing bat to make a mess of the stumps. Patient, painstaking innings comes to an end. Well done, Azhar. 241/4
View dismissal Shan Masood c Holder b Chase 9 60 30 0 0 30.00
12.4 56.7 mph, the length is much fuller now and breaks away. Good change in length. Masood is sucked into pushing at it with a short front-foot stride. Chase claims the outside edge. It carries low to Holder, at second slip, who clings onto it with both hands. Reward for Chase. He has a wicket without even conceding a run 19/1
View dismissal Babar Azam c Powell b Joseph 55 176 124 3 0 44.35
54.2 81.6 mph, uncertainty in footwork. Didn't get forward fully as he shaped to drive, looked to pull out but by then the ball had kissed the edge as first slip gleefully accepted a simple catch. Big wicket for Alzarri Joseph. Skiddy pace has done the trick for him, threatening stand broken. Wonder how much of it had to do with the fact that Babar was struggling to score freely. 139/2
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Holder 18 113 75 1 0 24.00
77.5 80.2 mph, pins him lbw! Younis has to go for 18, unless he wants to review and he does! This is a good length ball pitching just outside off and hitting him in front of leg stump. There is a lot of inward movement, and the angle coming into the batsman as well, but Hawk-Eye reveals the ball will clip enough of the leg stump to uphold umpire Oxenford's decision 177/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c †Dowrich b Chase 59 226 148 6 1 39.86
126.2 49.7 mph, oh, dear! Misbah has thrown it away here. Goes for another big, extravagant stroke. Gets down very early for a reverse sweep, telegraphs it and Dowrich does well to adjust his line late. Fires it down the leg side, making it the wrong line to play the reverse. Ball takes the top-edge as it bounces in front of the bat and is caught easily by Dowrich. They make a confident appeal and it is given by umpire Illingworth. Good, healthy edge 311/6
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c Singh b Chase 17 53 38 2 0 44.73
118.5 54.3 mph, holes out to long-on. Goes for an extravagant stroke and makes decent connection but just not good enough. Good bowling from Chase. Nicely flights it up and tempts the batsman but makes sure to fire it well outside of. Shafiq tries to fetch a sweep and ends up dragging it to long-on who runs to his right and takes it 274/5
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c Hope b Bishoo 51 115 73 4 0 69.86
144.5 52.2 mph, backs away and goes for an extravagant drive. The bowler does well to slide it in on a fullish length, finds a thick outside edge that goes at an awkward height to first slip where Shai Hope snaffles a sharp catch 367/9
View dismissal Mohammad Amir b Holder 7 14 16 0 0 43.75
129.2 81.6 mph, brilliant. He was utterly bemused at the review going against his team in the last over. Now he has his arms held aloft and the reprieved batsman's leg stump knocked back. Good length ball, jags in off the deck and Amir is in no position to handle the late movement. The feet are on leg stump, the bat comes down at an angle, the ball screams through the gap 322/7
View dismissal Yasir Shah c Powell b Holder 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
129.3 82.4 mph, two in two! The flags are aloft. The school kids are roaring. And their captain is turning the match around. This is why I love fast bowling, takes a game going to sleep and kicks it awake. This is a back of a length delivery that squares the batsman up, snatches his outside edge and goes through to slip. Powell didn't have it under control originally, but he takes it on the second grab 322/8
View dismissal Mohammad Abbas st †Dowrich b Bishoo 4 74 43 0 0 9.30
146.3 46.7 mph, this one's even better. It's a perfect ball from Bishoo. Pushes it nice and full to draw the batsman out. Abbas does not account for the sharp turn, Dowrich does well to collect it and takes off the bails. He took his backfoot out as he came forward and has failed to slide it back in 376/10

View dismissal KC Brathwaite c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Yasir Shah 29 190 123 1 0 23.57
43.1 51.9 mph, and a wicket, another for Yasir, right on the brink of lunch! Beautifully bowled, flight and dip on middle and off. Came forward to defend, and he was undone by the dip followed by turn and bounce. Felt for it fatally, and it kissed his outside edge through to Sarfraz 97/3
View dismissal KOA Powell c Azhar Ali b Yasir Shah 31 119 82 2 0 37.80
26.6 46.2 mph, gone, he's given away another start here. Tossed up again, and Powell steps out again. Azhar had been pushed back to the midwicket boundary, Powell looked to go over wide mid-on. Didn't quite reach the pitch, dragged it squarer than he wanted, and Azhar ran smartly to his right and caught it on the slide. Bit of a soft dismissal, and it almost felt like Yasir knew it was coming. 43/1
View dismissal SO Hetmyer c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Yasir Shah 17 21 18 1 1 94.44
30.6 51.1 mph, big appeal for caught behind, and Sarfraz asks for a review. Again it's just back of a length, again it turns sharply, past the shuffling batsman down leg. Looks to tuck it away into the leg side, and did that catch some glove on its way through to Sarfraz? Looks very close. We don't have Snicko, but there seems to be a bit of noise as it passes. Yup. Bruce Oxenford has to reverse his decision, and Hetmeyer has to walk back. 69/2
View dismissal SD Hope c Misbah-ul-Haq b Azhar Ali 29 174 116 2 0 25.00
71.6 51.2 mph, gone! Azhar has delivered the breakthrough. The slowness of the pitch undoes Hope, and again, a wicket on the stroke of a break. Tossed up full on leg stump. Shapes for the inside-out drive. The ball stops on him, he checks his shot, fatally, and pops up a simple low catch to Misbah at short extra-cover 152/4
View dismissal RL Chase b Mohammad Abbas 69 228 155 5 0 44.51
110.2 80.5 mph, that's unexpected, at least from the batsman's point of view. Chase is met by a yorker, curling into his pads and he is so late in bringing his bat down. And even as he does so, he is playing across the line, a panic-stricken flick through midwicket. It fails him as the ball cannons off his pad and onto off stump 239/7
View dismissal VA Singh lbw b Mohammad Abbas 8 82 44 0 0 18.18
86.2 80.3 mph, plumb. Stone dead. Vishaul has paid the price for minimal feet movement. The ball bends back in late to trap him plumb in front while he's on the hop to defend. Should have played forward but the ball angled back in to beat the inside edge. There was no inside edge whatsoever. The height wasn't an issue either. Vishaul chanced his luck with a review, but it doesn't work. 189/5
View dismissal SO Dowrich b Mohammad Amir 20 82 53 1 0 37.73
100.4 80.8 mph, a wicket in the first over. Amir is thrilled, as most fast bowlers will be after they break a set of stumps. He doesn't do it all on his own though. Dowrich, ever so kindly, provides an inside edge that allows a back of a length delivery outside off to crash into his castle 218/6

View dismissal D Bishoo c Younis Khan b Mohammad Abbas 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
110.3 81.5 mph, Pakistan are celebrating again as Younis believes he has taken a low catch at second slip. The soft signal is out as the on-field umpires throw it to their colleague upstairs. All this commotion starts with another almost yorker-length delivery, this one outside the off stump. Bishoo, his feet rooted to the crease, pushes at the ball, gets an edge and it seems to have carried cleanly with Younis moving adeptly to his right. That's his 10th grab of the series, the Pakistan record for a fielder (and not a wicketkeeper) 239/8
View dismissal AS Joseph b Mohammad Abbas 0 9 8 0 0 0.00
112.2 77.7 mph, cleans him up! This is fine bowling. The yorker again. Searing, straight and just too good for Joseph. Goes off the boot and onto the stumps again. This is high-quality bowling, and there might even be reverse swing on offer 241/9
View dismissal ST Gabriel c Babar Azam b Mohammad Abbas 0 15 6 0 0 0.00
114.6 81.6 mph, has he found the bat? Yes, he has. Given by the umpire. Gabriel has asked for a review straight away and Abbas will have to wait to see if he has a five-for. The players are walking off the field, so seems like he may have got a feather. Small deflection can be seen before the ball hits the pad, it has got the inside edge and the on-field call remains 247/10

And it was also angling in, so could it be heading down leg? No, it's on middle and leg and the ball is clipping bails. Length ball, tries to flick across the line after moving across 57/3

6.6 47.8 mph, Babar has fallen to a bat-pad and Pakistan lose their second. Or have they? The umpires go upstairs to refer this. West Indies are celebrating and the soft signal is out. Flighted outside off and spinning in from a fullish length. Definite inside edge and it lobs towards forward short leg who gets down and takes it sharply. Seems like it may have bounced in front of him though. Remember, soft signal is out. This is going to be a hard one for the third umpire. Not sure if he has got his hands entirely underneath that one. They use multiple angles and one of them actually seems to suggest it may have just bounced. But the third umpire has stuck on with the on-field call and given it out 8/2

30.5 50.0 mph, Misbah first and Younis now. He, too, gets handshakes from all of the West Indies team. And he walks off to a standing ovation, turns around and acknowledges the crowd as he walks off for the final time. Younis walks through a similar guard of honour and he is still being applauded after he has gone off the ground. And it is the sweep that brings an end to his career. It was flighted outside off and Younis got down to sweep. Ends up coming on the full, and as a result, it is too high for him, gets the top edge to short fine leg where Powell dives to his left to snaffle it 72/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c †Dowrich b Bishoo 2 24 14 0 0 14.28
26.6 47.0 mph, Misbah's career ends on a slog sweep. He is pulled into a warm embrace b his retiring team-mate. West Indies' players all run up to him to congratulate him. Pakistan team puts together a guard of honour for their retiring captain with their bats raised. That includes Asad Shafiq who walks out to bat only after Misbah has passed through the guard of honour. Pitched up around middle and leg and Misbah goes against the turn, does not find the middle of the bat and he skies it before the wicketkeeper moves to his left to gather it 65/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c & b Joseph 13 45 36 1 0 36.11
37.4 84.5 mph, he's already worked out the right length to bowl on this pitch. And he's only 20. This is a slow surface. Anything hitting the deck will stop on the batsman. So if you can pitch it on a fuller than good length - as Joseph does - the batsman is instinctively drawn into drive - as Shafiq is - and leaves himself open to popping tame catches. In this case, the bowler gets to enjoy the fruits of his labour all by himself 90/7

33.3 81.0 mph, superb work! First from the bowler, in executing the perfect bouncer, making it climb up over the batsman's shoulder, a batsman who had charged out at him. How dare he, says Joseph with this little peach. Forces Sarfraz into a tangle and the attempted hook shot is gloved over his head and into the hands of the wicketkeeper. Good on Dowrich too, turning around and running back, watching the ball over his shoulder, and avoiding the helmet too 82/6
View dismissal Mohammad Amir c Bishoo b Joseph 27 94 69 3 0 39.13
55.3 80.1 mph, caught at short cover. Short of good length ball and Amir was backing away, looking to slap it away. Can't keep it down and Bishoo juggles and takes the catch on second attempt. Seems to suggest that he momentarily lost sight of the ball. West Indies finally break through but has the damage already been done? 151/8

Powell pushes forward and defends but the ball stays in the air just for a second longer as it goes in the direction of the fielder. Shan Masood the man, throws himself down to his left and plucks a one-handed stunner 7/1
View dismissal SO Hetmyer b Mohammad Amir 25 49 36 3 0 69.44
17.5 87.9 mph, bowled him! Not for the first time this series, and this is another beauty! Full this time, with just a bit of late swerve into the left-hander. A poor shot, goes for the big drive through mid-off, and the ball sneaks through between bat and pad and knocks back off stump 47/3
View dismissal SD Hope lbw b Hasan Ali 17 88 54 2 0 31.48
29.6 87.0 mph, first Test wicket for Hasan and this is a beauty to get him. Toe-crusher that tails back in late to hit him flush on the toe. Lot of reverse on that delivery. Hope froze, completely played all around the delivery and missed it completely. The ball would have crashed into middle stump. Hope paid the price for no feet movement at all. Big strike just before lunch. 66/4

View dismissal VA Singh c Babar Azam b Yasir Shah 2 27 13 0 0 15.38
35.1 48.0 mph, got him! Classic legspinner's dismissal against left-hand batsman. Tosses it up wide outside off, into the rough. Vishaul stretches out, and is defeated by dip, turn and bounce. He's late going forward - he's only landing on his heel when the ball pitches - and he's nowhere near the pitch of it to defend. Inside edge onto pad, and pops up to short leg. who takes a lovely catch diving forward 76/5
View dismissal SO Dowrich c Babar Azam b Yasir Shah 2 36 25 0 0 8.00
43.2 49.8 mph, big appeal for a catch at short leg, and Oxenford's finger goes up immediately. Dowrich reviews immediately. Tossed up outside leg, and Dowrich is only half-forward as he tries to flick against the turn. Loops up off the pad to the short-leg fielder. Was there any bat on it? The toe of Dowrich's bat hit the ground for sure. From replays, the ball seems to pass the inside edge without really grazing it, but is there conclusive evidence? Difficult decision, this. Personally, I don't think he edged it. But the third umpire is reviewing Bruce Oxenford's decision, which was out. From side-by-side front-on and side-on images, it seems that there's a bit of gap between bat and ball when it passes the edge. But you can't be entirely sure. The third umpire stays with the on-field decision. Unlucky for Dowrich, but the third umpire didn't have much of a choice there. 93/6
View dismissal JO Holder* lbw b Hasan Ali 22 85 62 2 0 35.48
61.6 86.7 mph, Bizarre way to go, reverse swing has done the trick again. This is a full toss that reverses back in from outside off, Holder plays all around it. Was better off trying to hit it straight down the ground. Only an inside edge could have saved him. In this case, there was none. Hawkeye shows this would've smashed into the leg stump. 151/7
View dismissal D Bishoo c Shan Masood b Mohammad Abbas 3 71 45 0 0 6.66
76.4 80.7 mph, another bouncer, and Bishoo finds no way of evading this one. Rose to an awkward height - towards his neck - and the inward angle left him in no position to play it. Tried to fend it away into the on side, only managed to glove it in the air, gives the man at silly point the simplest of catches. Went off the bat handle, actually 181/8
View dismissal AS Joseph c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Hasan Ali 5 59 32 1 0 15.62
88.2 83.2 mph, gone, Hasan has struck the crucial blow! The good old good-length ball, just outside off, in the corridor, the channel, call it what you will. Joseph feels for it, doesn't really move his feet in time. He's on the move while he plays and gets a thick outside edge that carries through at waist height to Sarfraz 197/9
View dismissal ST Gabriel b Yasir Shah 4 32 22 1 0 18.18
95.6 55.2 mph, WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED HERE? Slogs, and inside-edges into off stump! He had one ball to see out, and I think Yasir bowled the googly outside off. Gabriel may have picked it, and figured he was safest hitting it over the top because everyone was clustered around the bat. Still, what a risk. Only manages an inside-edge, and the ball ricochets into the stumps 202/10

10.4 to Brathwaite, 47.9 mph, short ball gets the wicket! Pitches this on or just outside leg stump, and Brathwaite shapes to cut. It may have bounced a little more than he expected, and he simply couldn't keep it down. Slapped it airily, and Hasan takes a good low catch falling forward at point 22/2
