10.1

Shahid Afridi to Simmons, OUT, a quicker one from Afridi, Simmons goes for the cut though there isn't too much width, did that hit the bat? Kamran Akmal doesn't think so, he's appealing for an lbw, the umpire is unmoved, neither has Simmons initially, the ball has dribbled away to the off side, the batsmen decide to try pinching a single, direct hit and Simmons is caught short, that lbw shout looked good as well, maybe just hit outside off

LMP Simmons run out 31 (34m 29b 2x4 2x6) SR: 106.89

West Indies 61/3   LMP Simmons 31 (29b 2x4 2x6)
