    7.5 gone! That's a lovely delivery, fourth-stump line and Smith pushes at it away from his body, edge carries through at a nice waist height to Haris at second slip. Caught Sohail bowled Sohail. 28/2
    4.6 this one's taken, and it's taken well. Gayle goes for the pull but it's too quick for him to control, and the top edge flies to long leg, where Wahab takes a well-judged catch, tumbling forward 17/1
    retired hurt
    24.1 and he strikes first ball! Samuels comes down the track, I think he may have wanted to hit this straighter, maybe over mid-on. Maybe he didn't quite get to the pitch of it, and he ends up slicing it straight down long-off's throat 103/3
    39.5 goes for the big hit over the on side but doesn't get to the pitch and skews it high in the air, drops down into long-off's hands. Yasir takes another catch 194/4
    49.6 there's the yorker as Russell backs away and he inside-edges that swipe down towards the fine leg boundary. Simmons calls for the third and dives into the crease, the throw and Akmal's glovework beat him by a few inches 310/6
    47.1 back of a length on off stump and Shahid Afridi takes a catch. It was angled in, and it cramped Sammy, who tried to carve it over backward point but couldn't time it well enough to clear the fielder. Simple catch in the end 259/5

    0.2 gone! That was short outside off, hurried Jamshed as he looked to fetch the pull from outside off, hit it high in the air and short midwicket ran quickly to his right and took a dolly 0/1
    3.1 four down! It's full outside off, but not full enough to drive. Shehzad goes hard at it, on the up, and slices it into the hands of gully 1/4
    0.6 got him! That's brilliant from Taylor. Went wide of the crease, angled it in towards off stump, very full. Younis' front foot was stuck and he pushed at the ball and nicked it through to the keeper, walking into the shot 1/2
    2.6 Taylor has three! Three ducks! It's short and angling into the body again, no room to cut, but he goes after it with an angled bat and scoops it straight to backward point, who takes it after a juggle 1/3
    10.3 taken! That was short and wide and Misbah flashed hard at it, thick edge flew to the left of first slip but Gayle moved quickly to take an excellent catch with both hands 25/5
    25.3 Gone. It's a low full-toss on off stump and Maqsood looked to hit it down the ground, went up off the bottom of his bat and Benn did brilliantly to catch that, diving full-length to his left from mid-on 105/6
    31.4 they moved a fielder back onto the midwicket boundary after that previous shot, and Russell bowled a straighter line. Went for the same shot, hit it well but hit it much squarer than the previous one, and it went straight down the throat of the fielder 139/7
    36.2 and he's gone. Full-toss, and he swipes it straight into the hands of short midwicket. Nice low catch from Holder 157/9
    35.3 whataball! That cut back in sharply from outside off and took the inside edge of his defensively-thrust bat, onto thigh pad and it looped towards the keeper, who dived forward and claimed a low catch. They've gone up to the third umpire now. Yup, straight into the gloves. Well taken, that. 155/8
    38.6 now he connects with the slog sweep but only with the edge of his bat. Soars 20 storeys high and it's Ramdin who settles under it in the end 160/10

Match Notes

  • No Gayle storm but Pakistan still blown away

    A one-sided game between West Indies and Pakistan did not take anything away from the great atmosphere at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch

  • Warning: Meltdown imminent

    All West Indies and New Zealand had to do in their respective matches was simply turn up and wait for their opponents to shoot themselves. In fact, they didn't even have to wait

  • Pakistan's troupe of mistakes

    His team committed so many errors, one after another, that when Misbah was asked whether the batting, the bowling or the fielding was worse, he just smiled and said "Everything"

  • 'We lost in all three departments' - Misbah

    Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has said that his "players are to blame" for the team's humiliating defeat against West Indies in Christchurch which has now forced them to sit tight at the bottom of Pool B

  • Turnaround inspires hope for West Indies

    It has been a turbulent few months for West Indies cricket, culminating in a demoralising defeat against Ireland. But on Saturday, the players gave a glimpse of how strong they can be if they worked together as a team

A smashing win

Poor chasers


Number of times Pakistan have won an ODI chasing a target of 280 or more in Australia or New Zealand. This is their 11th failure

Russell power

Cut down in full flight


The run rate during the Bravo-Ramdin partnership. They added 49 runs in 7.1 overs

Bravo does a Lara?


Number of WI batsmen who've retired hurt in a World Cup game and not returned to bat - Brian Lara, v Pakistan in 1992
