    3.5 there's another one, Smith has been chasing the ball outside off several times, risky gamble playing so far away from his body, this time he connects, but it is only an edge, and a simple catch for Kamran Akmal 22/2
    2.1 massive wicket, Hafeez has a stellar record against left-handers, and he gets Gayle on the first ball he bowls to him, Gayle stretches forward to play the ball, he plays down the wrong line and misses the ball outside off, his back leg is out of the crease, the keeper takes the bails off and there will be no Gaylestorm today 10/1
    10.1 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 61/3
    10.4 Afridi is doing it for Pakistan here, second key wicket in the over, both set batsmen dismissed, Samuels goes for the cut, bottom edges it on to the stumps 67/4
    19.1 Bravo goes for a big swipe, loses his balance and can only bottom edge the ball onto his leg, the ball drops near the stumps, Bravo is on the floor, Sammy wants the single, Bravo decides to take on Kamran Akmal though he has lost his bat, Akmal hits direct, the end of the Bravo show, Tanvir was actually asking Kamran to not throw there 152/6
    13.5 Ramdin decides enough of the singles and goes for the big hit, he went for the sweep, connects well but not well enough to clear deep midwicket, not sure Ramdin was the man who should have been trying to clear the ropes, a role pretty much everyone else in the side looks better suited for 81/5

    0.1 what a start for West Indies! a swinging yorker from Santokie, and the centurion from the previous game is gone for a golden duck, superb delivery from Santokie, he may not have the pace but he got this one to curl in the air, too much for Shehzad, it swung from around off towards middle, that was hitting low on middle stump, the bat came down really late, this match is swiftly unravelling for Pakistan 0/1
    1.3 Badree strikes, Bravo is dancing at extra cover after taking a simple catch, those dance moves aren't as simple though, Akmal watched two accurate deliveries from Badree, decided he had to go after the next, flat bats it to extra cover, easy for Bravo, both Pakistan openers gone for ducks 1/2
    10.3 and now Hafeez is gone, looking for the big hit that Pakistan need with alarming regularity from now on, top edges it and that swirls to Gayle at extra cover 37/5
    3.6 the Badree googly has done it, is that the game? the big wicket of Umar Akmal, who after playing a series of dot balls, charged out for a big shot, he missed, the ball snuck between bat and pad, Ramdin collects and the stumps are flashing, Pakistan are 9 for 3 in the fourth over 9/3
    5.3 Malik's slender fanbase is going to get thinner still as he's failed again, misses the ball outside off after coming way down the track, easy for Ramdin, Badree has his third, Pakistan are 13 for 4, that looked poor from Malik, he was backing away so far from leg, that Badree pushed it wide of off, Malik had no chance of reaching it 13/4
    11.3 there's the wicket, not an innings Maqsood is going to look back fondly on, he has been all at sea today, his misery ends after he skips down the track, only to miss the ball and give Ramdin another stumping, Maqsood went for a massive heave, got nowhere near the ball 42/6
    15.5 full ball outside off, Afridi walked down the track, Narine fired that full and wide of off, once again a Pakistan batsman shows his hand too early, Narine sent it so wide that Afridi couldn't reach it, Ramdin gets another stumping 75/8
    15.2 there's the wicket for Narine, a quicker one from him, Tanvir plays that favourite slog of his to midwicket, ends up as a low catch there, Pakistan have lost their seventh 74/7
    17.5 West Indies are through, Pakistan's record of always making the semi-finals in the World T20 is over, Pakistan have been bowled out for the same number of runs West Indies scored in their final five overs, the end comes as Gul top edges a slog to deep midwicket, West Indies are dancing in joy, waving the flag with their supporters 82/10
    16.5 full ball hitting low on the base of the stumps, Pakistan are nine down, one wicket away from a proper hammering 78/9
