Sohail Tanvir1014234.20425121
47.2 to S Chanderpaul, slower ball outside off, bowled full, Chanderpaul falis to pick and goes through with his attempted loft over mid off, the ball lobs up in the air and Salman Butt takes an easy catch. 285/6
49.3 to JE Taylor, bowled 'im!!! That was pitched full on a good length on middle bowled from round the wicket, a slower ball, Taylor fails to pick it and goes for a wild swing over mid wicket, misses it completely and the middle stump is out of the ground!!. 294/7
49.4 to DBL Powell, bowled im!!, he's on a hat-trick!! the middle stump takes a beating once again!! That was full, Darren Powell tries to drive it towards long off, misses, and is comprehensively bowled. 294/8
Abdur Rauf907708.552612200
Umar Gul1006636.60315221
34.6 to CH Gayle, gone!!! That dropped chance did not prove costly. That was fuller on middle and leg, Gayle gets on the back foot and clips it uppishly straight to mid wicket, where Shahid Afridi takes a straightforward catch. Gayle timed that one very well, but did not get the elevation. He walks back for a superb 113!!. 198/2
43.3 to XM Marshall, bowled 'im!! That was a slower ball outside off, Marshall makes room and tries to pull that one over mid wicket, gets an inside edge onto the stumps. Important wicket that!!. 255/4
46.4 to CS Baugh, gone!! that was bowled full on middle and leg, Baugh looks to turn that towards square leg, gets the leading edge and Shoaib Malik who's standing at the edge of the circle at mid wicket takes a good catch stretching to his left. 276/5
Shoaib Malik1004314.30272010
19.3 to S Chattergoon, flatter and slightly quicker through the air this time, pitched on a good length outside off, Chattergoon comes down the track and tries to loft it over mid on, does not time it well enough, the ball lobs up in the air and Khurram Manzoor takes a few steps back and takes a well judged catch.. 125/1
Shahid Afridi1004514.50271110
37.3 to RR Sarwan, given out caught-behind!!! That was flat and quick outside leg stump, Sarwan tries to work that one in the direction of short-fine leg yet again, gets the thinnest of edge down the leg side, and Akmal moves to his left to take a good catch. An unfortunate way to get out.. 213/3

Daren Powell1005805.80337041
Jerome Taylor9.505425.49280320
29.4 to Khurram Manzoor, on a good length on the off and angling away just a touch, Manzoor stands his ground and tries t0 open the face to run it to third man, gets a thick outside edge and Carlton Bough dives to his right to take a sharp catch. Taylor strikes! Manzoor departs for a well made 69. 142/2
47.1 to Shoaib Malik, gone!! Malik goes!! What a wicket. That was bowled on a good length outside off, Malik tries to swing that one over mid wicket, but finds Shivnarine Chanderpaul stationed there exactly for that shot, right at the edge of the circle. Malik plays a brilliant hand, but did he make enough?. 262/6
Lionel Baker904735.22255010
15.1 to Salman Butt, bowled 'im!! That was pitched back of a length on middle and off, Butt tries to run it down to third man, gets an inside edge onto the stumps. That was inevitable. He ended up staying there longer than he should have., The Windies finally make a breakthrough. Butt walks back for an unconvincing 24. Baker gets his first ODI wicket.. 64/1
39.5 to Younis Khan, on a good length outside off, Younis tries to loft that one over long on, got the elevation but not the distance, went really high, Chattergoon at mid off took a couple of steps back and took a well judged catch. He almost fumbled it on the first attempt, but kept his composure to pouch it cleanly in the end. Big Blow!. 206/4
41.6 to Shahid Afridi, what a catch!! Could that be the decisive blow!! short of a length on the off stump, Afridi pulled that one uppishly towards deep square leg, that was very well struck, but Chanderpaul runs across to his right and dives to his right just inches within the boundary ropes to take a magnificent catch! Afridi goes, and the match takes a new twist. We are heading for an exciting finish here.. 224/5
Chris Gayle603305.5070011
Nikita Miller1006416.40203120
32.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, bowled 'im! that was an arm ball bowled full on middle and leg, Misbah gets down on one knee to reverse-sweep that one down towards third-man, misses it completely, and the off stump is out of the ground. Too much unconventional strokeplay in his brief innings. 159/3
