Mujeeb Ur Rahman1013333.30382020
3.2 to CH Gayle, Mujeeb's bag of tricks has bamboozled Gayle. This is a googly that pitches on middle and off, spins just a wee bit to beat the outside edge, clip the top of the back pad and hit off stump. Gayle and Mujeeb could well be training together a lot from April at the IPL, for now, he'll have to simply walk back.. 12/1
40.3 to JO Holder, he's hit this well but picks out long-on. This was too full outside off, he looked to belt this over long-on but couldn't get the elevation he would've liked. Make no mistake, this is an excellent catch Najibullah Zadran, absorbed the momentum on that hit superbly.. 158/5
42.3 to SD Hope, superb from Zadran at long-on. Shai Hope slog this from across the line when he may have been better off looking to hit through the off side. Zadran had to run a long way to his left.. 161/6
Gulbadin Naib301103.66100020
Mohammad Nabi1014324.30311110
11.1 to SO Hetmyer, big wicket for Nabi first up. The drift and angle has done the trick. Nice flight but this lands on off stump and goes straight on, Hetmyer gets a thin inside edge as he prods forward. No DRS, so he'll have to walk back. 100 ODI wickets for Nabi . 46/2
30.5 to MN Samuels, caught at deep midwicket. Backs himself to clear the big boundary and picks out the fielder. Tries to heave a length ball over but doesn't quite middle it and two fielders running from opposite ends converge. One of them snaffles it. 108/4
Sharafuddin Ashraf913113.44352000
43.3 to CR Brathwaite, top-edges this sweep from way outside off to deep square leg. He was looking to hit out, not such a good shot to play under the circumstances because he had to fetch this against the turn. Didn't get underneath the flight either.. 166/7
Rashid Khan1013113.10382010
44.5 to R Powell, swept straight to deep square leg. Not for the first time today have we seen a batsman looking to do that. This is very poor application. West Indies in danger of being bowled out well inside their quota of overs. Rashid's first wicket of the day.. 169/8

Jason Holder1003933.90403040
4.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, what kind of shot selection is that? He backs away to go over cover but the length is on the shorter side so he ends up reaching out to it as he backs away, because this is floated wide, and goes after it to mistime the skier to cover. Wicket number 99 for Jason Holder.. 17/2
35.6 to Mohammad Nabi, this is an outstanding catch at deep square leg. Does that crack the game open again? Hetmyer deserves accolades for running in as soon as the ball was it. He may have had doubts whether to go forward or try and save the boundary. He took the aggressive route by diving forward to complete the catch. Nabi absolutely nailed the pull and he now walks off in disbelief.. 132/4
46.3 to Gulbadin Naib, sees this in his arc, looks for the glory hit but can only hit this straight to long-on. Powell makes no mistake this time.. 190/7
Keemo Paul8.412923.34362040
1.1 to Javed Ahmadi, he's struck with his first legal delivery. What a strike this. Nothing nervous about this. Angles in a length ball on middle and off, it pitches and straightens as Ahmadi is struck on the pad playing all around it. As plumb as decisions come.. 9/1
43.2 to Najibullah Zadran, he's hit this straight down the throat of third man. This was short outside off, Najibullah jumped back and looked to help this over the ropes, but may have been cramped for room so couldn't hit it square. This game continues to swing from one side to another.. 168/6
Nikita Miller904114.55272100
20.3 to Samiullah Shinwari, almost dropped. Gayle takes it on the third attempt. It was a simple take but he made it seem a lot harder by grabbing at it with his right hand. That was because he was late to react and move his hands but no damage in the end. Poor stroke from Shenwari who pushes way away from the body. 83/3
Carlos Brathwaite903904.33345010
Ashley Nurse903914.33292100
40.3 to Rahmat Shah, there's the big wicket, one that will send shivers down the spines of many in Afghanistan. This was short, he tried to rock back and cut but ended up hitting it straight to Paul at backward point. He can't believe what he's just done. Is there hope yet for West Indies?. 152/5
