Pakistan completed a comprehensive win in the second Test, early on the fifth morning, sealing the game by 136 runs and levelling the series 1-1. The West Indian tail could provide no resistance, adding just 29 runs to their overnight total before succumbing to 143 all out.
Danish Kaneria sealed his five-for, and perhaps he was a touch lucky, as Daren Powell played and missed at a full one and the ball popped off the pad to Yasir Hameed at silly mid-off. There were two sounds, which could have confused the umpire, but replays showed the ball had not hit bat (126 for 7).
Then Shabbir Ahmed came to the party, getting a ball to shape away from Courtney Browne. The ball did just enough to beat the middle of the bat and take the outside edge on the way to the keeper (126 for 8). Barely a minute later Reon King had gone in identical fashion (130 for 9). Soon he rounded off a fine innings with figures of 4 for 56 and the West Indies innings had come to an end.
And so too, after 20 years and 92 Tests, had the career of umpire David Shepherd. He was applauded warmly off the pitch as he shook hands with all the players and match officials. The moment marked the departure of one of the great characters of the game.
