Catch Danyal for the chase, but it's drizzling at the moment and we'll provide an update as soon as we have one.

Mustafa S: "Hopefully rain doesn't disrupt this, this is shaping to be a great competition!"

Isaac Marshall: "Aside from Pollie, Pakistan completely dominated."

1.38pm That's the end of the West Indies innings, and here comes the drizzle too. The pitch has been immediately covered by the ground staff. Anyway, it was always going to be a shootout with just nine overs to play and West Indies did well to post 85. There were far too many dot balls, credit for which must go to Pakistan, who did well with the slower balls and the ones turning too.

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Pollard, SIX runs

length ball on middle and off, and pulled with a crackling sound! Pollard stays deep in his crease with his front leg out of the way as well, and tonks that beyond the deep square leg fence to end the innings with a six

Last ball. 85 anyone?

8.5
2
Shaheen Shah Afridi to Pollard, 2 runs

another short of a length ball on middle and leg, and he miscues a pull. But the ball lands safely much before deep midwicket could run ahead that far

8.4

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Pollard, FOUR runs

another short ball on middle and leg, but this time he finds the gap between deep midwicket and deep square. This was bowled much quicker, and he rode the bounce too while playing with his front leg in the air

8.3
Shaheen Shah Afridi to Pollard, no run

and he is beaten on his pull. Short delivery at just 124kph on middle and off, and Pollard swings and swivels too early

Ready then. Pollard has four balls to make an impact.

Pollard getting disturbed with his bat, with the handle being damaged in all probability. Out comes a substitute with four bats

Swathi: "Just tuning into this match. It is crazy to see that extras given has been the highest score till now."

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Holder, 1 run

yorker length on middle, and at 138kph. Holder steps across, but can only lob that toward deep midwicket with the ball coming off really low on the bat

8.1
Shaheen Shah Afridi to Holder, no run

beaten on his heave. Fullish ball on off, and angling away as Holder tries to slog but misses

Shaheen comes from over the wicket

Slight drizzle now

Hasan Ali to Holder, no run

tries to dab that good length ball in the channel, but ends up playing it really close to himself instead

W
Hasan Ali to Hetmyer, OUT

well taken by Rizwan! Another slower delivery bowled with a scrambled seam and on a short of a length on middle and off. Hetmyer went for the scoop by stepping across, but mistimes it as Rizwan dives forward after running to complete a good take in the end

Shimron Hetmyer c †Mohammad Rizwan b Hasan Ali 5 (11m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100

Around the wicket to Hetmyer

Hasan Ali to Pollard, 1 run

pushes this fullish ball on off to cover by opening the face of the bat

7.2
2
Hasan Ali to Pollard, 2 runs

he miscues a pull, but is safe in the end. Short of a length on middle and off, and slower in pace too. The ball flies over short fine leg, who threw to the keeper's end where Pollard was only ambling back. Hasan fumbled a throw with the batter miles away, and the West Indies captain has an escape

7.1

Hasan Ali to Pollard, SIX runs

whacked over deep square leg. Good length ball on middle and off, and he hit against the wind while not even quite finding the middle of the bat

Pollard taking his time by digging the bail, and then the pitch

Hasan returns. Over the wicket

Sarah : "This is probably the one game where I don't have a problem with windies swinging for the hills every ball to be honest "

crashed to point. Short of a length on middle and off, and he gave himself room to hammer that to the left of the man on the boundary

6.4
Mohammad Wasim to Hetmyer, no run

goes for the scoop, but is beaten. Bowled full and in the channel at 143kph, as the batter stepped across to ramp but the ball passed in between the stumps and his bat

Mohammad Wasim to Pollard, 1 run

chops this good length ball outside off to short third man

6.3
5w
Mohammad Wasim to Pollard, 5 wide

that is pretty wayward to be honest. The ball almost slipped out of his hands it seemed, with Wasim landing it full and way outside leg. Rizwan dived to his left, but couldn't get a hand either

Over the wicket to Pollard too

HMQ: "That's a really good first wicket to get.. Memorable "

Mohammad Wasim to Hetmyer, 1 run

fuller ball on middle, and he opens the bat face to dab to point while playing close to his body

Hetmyer is the new batter. Wasim continues over the wicket

6.1
W
Mohammad Wasim to Gayle, OUT

taken at long-on! Slower ball with a scrambled seam bowled in the slot but wide of off. Gayle swings his bat to that one, and though that travels quick and flat, it is right down the throat of the man on the fence. What a first wicket to have in your career! Fourth wicket down, and West Indies need rapid runs too

Chris Gayle c Hasan Ali b Mohammad Wasim 7 (24m 7b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100

Wasim is back from over the wicket. Just three overs to go
