TOTAL70.3 Ov (RR: 3.07)217
Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Imran Butt, 6.4 ov), 2-21 (Abid Ali, 7.6 ov), 3-68 (Azhar Ali, 31.2 ov), 4-68 (Babar Azam, 32.1 ov), 5-101 (Mohammad Rizwan, 41.4 ov), 6-186 (Faheem Ashraf, 62.1 ov), 7-190 (Yasir Shah, 64.3 ov), 8-217 (Hasan Ali, 69.6 ov), 9-217 (Fawad Alam, 70.2 ov), 10-217 (Mohammad Abbas, 70.3 ov)
6.4 to Imran Butt, breakthrough! Full on off, and a bit of seam movement thereafter. Comes in, goes past the inside edge as he looks to play the straight drive, and the stumps are in a mess!. 21/1
32.1 to Babar Azam, they're celebr-appealing for a caught behind off Babar. Brathwaite reviews - rush of blood or real chance? Fullish ball, Babar had come forward to check a shot. But the ball goes past the inside edge and Da Silva had dived far to his left to take this ball that was really moving in the air. What a blow. 68/4
7.6 to Abid Ali, second opener gone! Full outside off stump. Defended forward, but the ball moves away. Takes the edge, and taken by Da Silva. But has he overstepped? Nervous wait for Abid Ali. Just the little bit of the heel is inside for Seales. Out for 9.. 21/2
31.2 to Azhar Ali, Azhar has been dismissed as Seales gets it at a good length, but it bounces a bit more. He looks to defend, but it takes the bat's shoulder. Holder - at second slip - dives to his left, and pouches it very close to the floor. 68/3
69.6 to Hasan Ali, pulled to short fine leg, and the party is over! Another short of a length ball on off, but this one came back in as Hasan pulled from almost leg stump. It seemed as if he first thought of ducking, but there wasn't that much of a bounce. Gets it off the higher side of the bat, and hands Mayers an easy catch. 217/8
64.3 to Yasir Shah, Da Silva diving! Good length just outside off. Brings the bat forward to defend, but the ball takes the outside edge as it straightens on so slightly. Keeper jumps to his right, and pouches that with ease. Hasan Ali in, and drinks. 190/7
41.4 to Mohammad Rizwan, chips to square leg, and gone! Soft dismissal in the end. Rizwan can't keep that flick down, and finds the fielder. Holder pitches it full just outside off, as the ball seemed to be angling back in, which may have tempted Rizwan to play with the movement. But he plays an aerial shot instead, and leaves Pakistan five down. 101/5
70.2 to Fawad Alam, bowled him! Fawad gets an inside edge, and Pakistan nearing the end of their innings. Holder bowls this full on a fifth-stump line, as Fawad goes for a half-flick-and-half-push only to swing it on to the stumps. Pakistan's last hope is gone, as West Indies sense a rapid wrapping up here. 217/9
70.3 to Mohammad Abbas, tickled behind, and the Pakistan innings is done! Perfect, nagging line and length to a tailender. This is pitched fullish on off, as Abbas tries to poke at that away from his body, with the ball also angling away. Da Silva pouches that low in front of him, with Holder now on a hat-trick when he would come out to bowl in the second innings. 217/10

TOTAL89.4 Ov (RR: 2.82)253
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Kieran Powell, 2.2 ov), 2-1 (Nkrumah Bonner, 2.3 ov), 3-51 (Roston Chase, 20.4 ov), 4-100 (Jermaine Blackwood, 37.1 ov), 5-100 (Kyle Mayers, 37.2 ov), 6-196 (Jason Holder, 68.5 ov), 7-221 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 77.1 ov), 8-249 (Kemar Roach, 86.2 ov), 9-252 (Jomel Warrican, 87.6 ov), 10-253 (Joshua Da Silva, 89.4 ov)
2.2 to KOA Powell, edged, and taken at second slip! But the umpires want to check if the ball carried cleanly. The Pakistan players, especially Imran, the fielder, look convinced, as you would expect. The soft signal is out, as they refer to the third umpire. He had to collect it really low, with the ball dying on to him. The third umpire says "ball is in his hands", and he has got "fingers under the ball". Anyway, Powell got an outside edge off his defence to this full delivery on off. He goes without a score, and Pakistan have a late wicket. 1/1
2.3 to NE Bonner, struck on his front pad, and given leg before! Immediately reviewed by Bonner. Fullish length on just outside off, and hitting his pad near his knee on middle. Replays confirm the ball would have gone on to hit middle stump on umpire's call. So the decision stands, though West Indies don't lose the review. Abbas on a hat-trick. 1/2
86.2 to KAJ Roach, struck on the pad, and given leg before after a confident appeal. But Roach reviews. On a good length outside off, and jags back in sharply to hit Roach on his front pad around middle stump. No edge confirmed by UltraEdge, and it is umpire's call on hitting, with the ball shown to be clipping the bail on middle and leg. A late wicket in the day for Pakistan. 249/8
37.1 to J Blackwood, easy one to mid on! Full on off, and it's in the slot to drive. But the ball moves in slightly, and therefore the drive has been flayed straight to Abbas.. 100/4
37.2 to KR Mayers, lbw shout first ball! Given! Fullish ball on off, from wide of the crease. Ball zips in with the angle, and it hits his front leg around middle and off.Reviewing? Yes? Yes? No! Mayers walks back after a consultation with Brathwaite. 100/5
87.6 to JA Warrican, yorker on middle and leg, and inswing on offer. Too slow to attempt the flick, and it bursts through his pads. West Indies 9 down.. 252/9
89.4 to J Da Silva, lbw appeal, given out! Da Silva reviews. This is full on off, and moving in. Da Silva drives outside the ball's line, and it's hit him on the shin. Impact in line, crashing into off and middle. West Indies 253 all out, lead of 36.. 253/10
68.5 to JO Holder, and the edge is here! Full outside off and moving away after pitching. Holder presses forward to defend but that little movement is the difference between hitting the bat and taking the edge. Rizwan poaches and they start to celebrate but is it a no ball? The umpire has asked Holder to wait. Fair ball! Holder removed for 58 but that was such a crucial innings after WI went from 100 to 3 to 100 to 5 in the space of two deliveries. 196/6
20.4 to RL Chase, faint edge behind, and there comes the first wicket of the morning! Chase goes for the wild drive away from his body to this full delivery on fifth stump, with no alignment of his bat, front foot and head. The ball swings away after pitching, and takes the outside edge to Rizwan, who dives to his right to collect the ball low. All the hard work of the morning is suddenly wasted. 51/3

TOTAL83.4 Ov (RR: 2.42)203
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Imran Butt, 2.5 ov), 2-56 (Azhar Ali, 21.2 ov), 3-65 (Abid Ali, 25.1 ov), 4-65 (Fawad Alam, 25.4 ov), 5-121 (Mohammad Rizwan, 45.5 ov), 6-168 (Faheem Ashraf, 74.1 ov), 7-170 (Babar Azam, 76.2 ov), 8-180 (Yasir Shah, 79.6 ov), 9-192 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 81.2 ov), 10-203 (Hasan Ali, 83.4 ov)
2.5 to Imran Butt, massive lbw appeal from Roach! But not given. Brathwaite reviews with Roach half celebrating. This was full just outside off with Butt pressing forward to defend. The ball does enough to beat the inside edge and crash into his front pad. Ball tracking says that's crashing into middle stump. Plumb lbw. Umpire Gregory Brathwaite maybe thought there was inside edge. 1/1
21.2 to Azhar Ali, knocks back the leg stump! Finally runs out of his luck. Very sharp movement back into the batter, and Azhar is left shocked for a moment. That also kept a little low after pitching on a good length on off, and zipped back in to crash into the leg stump, which was exposed after Azhar - like in the previous deliveries - steps across to try and push that away to the leg side. 56/2
74.1 to Faheem Ashraf, outstanding catch by Da Silva! Dives full stretch to his left in front of first slip, and nabs that one-handed. Faheem gets an outside edge to this good length delivery around fifth stump which leaves him, as he tries to defend with little foot movement, and the keeper grabs one this time after Blackwood dropped Faheem last evening. Roach is relieved. 168/6
25.1 to Abid Ali, caught! Back of a length outside off and Abid opts to cut a rising delivery with extra bounce. Instead of hitting the bat's middle, it whizzes past it, taking an edge that second slip gobbles up by moving to his left. 65/3
25.4 to Fawad Alam, another one! And Seales is having a great Test so far. Full on off and straightens instead of angling across. Fawad is on the back foot, but the ball moving makes him push at the delivery to protect off stump. Takes a faint edge to the keeper instead. 65/4
79.6 to Yasir Shah, edged behind, and Seales strikes in his first over today Fullish ball around fifth stump, and with a touch of movement away from the batter. Yasir, as he has all this while, goes for a jab at the ball but this time tickles it off the outside edge to the keeper, with Da Silva taking his eighth catch of the match. 180/8
81.2 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, full around leg stump, and he misses the leg-side flick. Hits the front leg, and huge lbw appeal but not given. Seales convinces Brathwaite to review. Now did this pitch in line? If so, he's gone. Confirmed: pitching on leg stump, and the ball will crash into middle stump. Career-best four-for for Seales.. 192/9
83.4 to Hasan Ali, youngest WI bowler to get a Test five-for! Breaking Alf Valentine's record. Back of a length outside off. Looks to flat-bat a shot over the off side. But top-edged instead, and Roach at fine leg gets under it to take a catch. Seales runs to Roach to celebrate and as he walks out with the match ball, a reminder that Pakistan are 203 all out and West Indies need 168 to win.. 203/10
76.2 to Babar Azam, leading edge to first slip, and West Indies get the big fish! The bowling change has worked. On a good length on middle and off, as Babar looks to flick this to the on side. But the ball takes off after pitching, and hits the shoulder of the bat while ballooning to Holder, who has a little celebration to show. 170/7
45.5 to Mohammad Rizwan, Holder gets a big one as this full ball just outside off deviates away after pitching. Rizwan is in two minds, pressing forward late to play at it, and it's taken the edge to the keeper.. 121/5

1.5 to KOA Powell, another big lbw appeal. Given out again by umpire Brathwaite. Powell reviews again. Dejavu here with this sequence. But is he not out this time too? Full on off and angling into middle and leg. Presses forward to defend, but goes past the inside edge, and hits the front leg. What does ball-tracking say? Impact on middle and leg, and this is clipping leg stump. Umpire just about gets it right. Powell has to go, but West Indies retain the review. 4/1
5.5 to KC Brathwaite, Pakistan are up in celebration for a potential caught behind, but the umpire shakes his head. Babar reviews this time. On a good length on middle, and angles away from the batter, who goes for a poke away from his body. UltraEdge shows a faint outside edge. West Indies' captain and top-scorer from the first innings is gone, as the play with DRS continues in this innings. 15/2
7.3 to NE Bonner, knocked him over! The leg stump is uprooted. He tried to drive from off stump, and got an inside edge on to the stumps. This is pitched full on middle and off, and he goes for the cover drive on this occasion, with the ball angling back in just a touch. There was a huge gap between pad and bat, as he seemed to play away from his body. Afridi is over the moon. 16/3
49.4 to J Da Silva, edged, and taken low by Rizwan! Pakistan well and truly into the bowlers now. This match is far from over. Da Silva goes fullish outside off, and jabs at that away from his body to get an outside edge. His front leg was on middle while he pushed at that ball on off, as Rizwan pouched it low on his right. 142/8
34.2 to J Blackwood, second slip dives in front of first, and it is Imran again! Could this wicket get Pakistan a step inside the door? Blackwood plays away from his body to this fullish ball which is wide of off, and gets an outside edge. Imran goes full stretch to his left to complete the take in front of first slip, and hands Hasan a wicket in his first over of the spell. This contest is becoming more tasty now. 111/6
38.4 to JO Holder, the off stump is uprooted! That makes a crackling sound after the ball hit the stump. Outstanding ball by Hasan to go slightly full and just about outside off, with the ball angling in just a touch. Holder hangs his bat forward to drive, but the ball is away from outside edge and knocks back the pole. And with that, Pakistan enter the tea break with their noses ahead. 114/7
52.4 to JA Warrican, Rizwan bags a beauty! A stunning catch! Rizwan runs all the way to almost the fine leg fence, before diving forward to pouch the ball into his gloves. Anyway, Warrican went to pull this short delivery wide of off, but got a top edge as the ball sailed away. Four fielders gave the chase, but in the end, it belonged to Rizwan. Oh my, don't go anywhere!. 151/9
26.6 to RL Chase, nabbed at second slip, and the stand is broken! The drinks break seems to have worked for Pakistan. Chase fends at a full length delivery on middle and off, and gets an outside edge after the ball angles away from him a little. Imran completes a low take in the end. Can this prove to be the moment when the match turns around?. 84/4
28.4 to KR Mayers, and second slip takes another! Outside edge, and Mayers gets a pair in the match. This goes on at a much more comfortable height for Imran, who pouches it after the ball takes the edge while Mayers goes to defend this full delivery in the channel, which angles across him too. Faheem gives Pakistan two wickets in as many overs, and with that, some hope. 92/5
