Shannon Gabriel23.119654.1410011009
4.2 to Azhar Ali, bowled! Azhar chops on. 145 kph, and Azhar falls for a duck after his triple-century in the first innings. Quite full outside off, Azhar thinks there is a driving opportunity. He gets forward, but the length isn't quite as full as the previous delivery. It is short enough to seam back just enough to take the inside edge of Azhar's bat. It ricochets onto the stumps via the pad. Just clips off stump. 6/1
39.6 to Asad Shafiq, chopped on! Shafiq falls. Against the run of play. Good length outside off, the ball was there to be cut but Shafiq doesn't angle his bat correctly. Was in between a straight bat and a 90-degree cut. The ball takes the inside edge and clatters into the stumps. Good wicket for WI. 129/3
89.4 to Misbah-ul-Haq, 137 kph, given! Misbah falls for 96. This looked out, thinks of not reviewing. Yasir has a chat with Misbah, and Misbah reviews. Is it just clipping? Full on middle and leg, Misbah shuffles across and misses his flick. The ball is just clipping leg stump. Umpire's call on impact with the stumps, and umpire Gough's decision is upheld. Misbah doesn't add much to his tally again. Gabriel strikes.. 332/5
109.5 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, cleaned im up with a searing yorker. 152 kph. They check for a no-ball and he's just fine. What a delivery. Superb bowling. Goes wide of the crease, and fires in a low full toss which swings back in and goes through a bat-pad gap to clatter into off stump. What a ball. WI strike early after the interval.. 412/7
119.1 to Zulfiqar Babar, out. Gabriel has five. Caught behind. Full outside off, pushed through. Babar stays in his crease, pushes at the ball, gets a thin outside edge which is taken by the keeper. Pakistan review, although Babar didn't seem anywhere near confident. Not a massive deflection, but a thin nick. Right decision in the end. 452/10
Miguel Cummins2016503.25898000
Jason Holder2284732.131084000
92.4 to Yasir Shah, straight to backward square leg and Pakistan lose another. Another short delivery on middle and leg, gets high enough to ensure Yasir is in no control of his pull. He takes his eyes off the ball and ends up hitting his pull straight to the fielder who takes it with both hands in front of his stomach. A decent innings, but WI has had a good morning. 342/6
114.6 to Mohammad Nawaz, Holder returns and strikes. Very full, almost a yorker, and reverse-swings in from around the wicket. Nawaz sits back and aims to play across his front pad. The ball hits the boot and rattles the middle stump. No reviews needed for this. 430/8
118.3 to Sohail Khan, taken. Superb catch from Johnson at midwicket. Holder changes the length this time, goes short aimed at the ribs. Sohail slaps his pull with terrible timing. It lobs up to the left of midwicket who gets across and takes a good two-handed catch to end a bright cameo. 452/9
Devendra Bishoo26011214.30967300
13.2 to Sami Aslam, beautiful delivery that. Bowled through the bat-pad gap. An over-exuberant stroke. A dream dismissal for a legspinner. Loads of flight outside off and pushed through fuller too, just like the previous delivery. Aslam plonks his front foot forward and looks to drive, against the spin. In the process, he opens up a big gap between bat and pad. Ripping turn takes the ball through that gap and clatters into the stumps. 42/2
Roston Chase1918004.21706000
Kraigg Brathwaite903614.00281000
83.6 to Younis Khan, slog sweep finds deep midwicket! Looked in an awkward position when he made connection with this ball - on a length and well outside off stump. As far forward as he was, he still wasn't quite to the pitch and that made him grope for the ball. As a result, he mistimes the shot and it becomes an easy catch for Chase. 304/4

Rahat Ali2184532.141056000
13.1 to LR Johnson, given! Full and straight, 135 kph. Plumb in front as long as there was no bat. Jonson says no bat. A chat with Bravo results in nothing, he turns around and walks off. A late inswinger on middle and leg. Superb bowling. Johnson is clearly late on his flick and plays around his front pad. Dead in front. Quick and correct decision. That movement took him by surprise.. 27/1
43.6 to MN Samuels, edged and taken. Superb bowling. Magnificent accuracy and he reaps the reward late in the day. Back of a length delivery outside off, the ball moves away late. Samuels doesn't bail out from a loose waft outside the off stump. Carries low to first slip, who takes it in front of his ankles to his left. 106/3
51.6 to J Blackwood, Rahat has Blackwood nicking behind! Full, angled away, and reverses away outside off, from over the wicket, at 142ks, Blackwood was itching to get going. He shimmies out a bit, drives away from the body, does so with hard hands, and sends an outside edge to the keeper. Shin-high take to his right from Sarfraz. 121/5
Sohail Khan1983521.84954000
63.5 to D Bishoo, The off stump is floored, and Bishoo's vigil ends. Good length, angled away, and reverses away slightly from over the wicket, Bishoo hangs back, is opened up, and plays down the wrong line. Timbaaah. 144/6
87.6 to ML Cummins, bowled'em. Pretty similar to Bishoo's dismissal. Nice and full from Sohail, Cummins is pinned to the crease and plays down the wrong line. The ball swings late past the outside edge and floors the off stump. 197/9

Yasir Shah28.468643.0012911000
28.1 to DM Bravo, massive appeal, not given. That looked very very close. Misbah reviews. A flat delivery on middle and leg, spins in and beats Bravo's pull. Only doubt is height. Struck him on middle and leg too. Bravo crouches in his pull. This could get very close. The flatter trajectory was responsible for Bravo thinking he can pull but the ball wasn't nearly short enough. Umpire Gough will have to change his decision because that is hitting halfway up middle and leg. That looked plumb. Bravo is distraught, was looking rather comfortable. A lot of replays to check if there was an inside edge, but the position of the seam did not change, so no bat.. 65/2
80.1 to RL Chase, Yasir strikes with the second new ball. Tosses this legbreak up outside off, turns away further. Chase is sucked into driving away from the body, from a set of stumps outside off. Slashes with firm hands and sends an outside edge, which flies to the right of Shafiq at second slip. He had fumbled earlier at extra cover, but plucks this fast-travelling ball with both hands. Shafiq then tumbles and falls on his backside. Sharp catch. Well done, Shafiq. 169/7
82.5 to SD Hope, Yasir strikes again with the second new ball. Drops it short and quick, does not turn, stays low, and beats Hope's pull. The ball sneaks under the bat, and the wristspinner hits middle and off stumps. The off stump is knocked out. Hope went hard at the shot and lost his shape. 178/8
94.4 to ST Gabriel, Sohail grabs the catch at mid-on, Yasir finishes with four, WI wrapped up for 224. Yasir bowls it slower, and gives it more air. Gabriel looks to loft over mid-on, but ends up chipping in the air. Sohail moves to his right, dives, and somehow hangs onto the skier, despite not being in control. 224/10

Shannon Gabriel1223613.00544002
32.5 to Sami Aslam, WI go up for a caught-behind appeal. Umpire Illingworth is unmoved. Holder calls for a review, Gabriel thinks he has his man, as does Hope. Gabriel's front foot is fine. There was a deflection. Did it come off the front pad or the bat? Good length, angled down, and swings down leg at 141ks. The batsman glances. We don't have snicko or hotspot in this series. No conclusive evidence as to whether the ball deflected off the bat or pad. Think the benefit of the doubt will go to Aslam. Oh no, wait, TV umpire Reiffel says it was off the bat, and overturns umpire Gough's call. That was a surprise, at least to me. Gabriel has his sixth wicket in the match. 93/1
Miguel Cummins702613.71261011
50.3 to Azhar Ali, Azhar Ali nicks to Holder at wide slip. Back of a length and kicks up wide outside off, Azhar chases it with a cut. He couldn't get on top of it. Ends up slashing an outside edge, which flies to Holder. He hops and takes it in front of his head. It went more or less straight to him, but at a quick pace. That's Cummins' first wicket in the match. 164/2

18.6 to DM Bravo, Oh dear, Bravo gives it away! Short and wide outside off, it was on a set of stumps outside off. Bravo throws his hands at it and slashes a cut in the air to Nawaz at backward point. Why did Bravo chase the ball? Why didn't he keep it down? Only he knows. Nawaz gleefully accepts a head-high catch. 63/2
Yasir Shah39512463.1716714000
7.5 to LR Johnson, The middle stump is pegged back. Much fuller and faster outside leg stump, the length wasn't quite there for the sweep, and there are close-in catchers. Risky shot, but Johnson goes through with it. The ball brushes the flap of the front pad and disturbs the stumps. Yasir strikes in his second over with the new-ish ball. Johnson was out sweeping Yasir in WI's first innings of the day-night Test too. 28/1
41.3 to MN Samuels, bump ball? Yasir thinks he has his man. The soft signal from Illingworth is out. He refers it to the TV umpire. Definitely not a bump ball. Samuels is gone. He pre-meditated by skipping out of the crease. Pushed through on leg stump, drifts in a bit. Samuels yorks himself and jabs his bat down. Ends up chipping a return catch. 112/3
71.2 to RL Chase, gone this time. A beautiful delivery. Tossed this one up, loop. Draws Chase forward with that flight and the full length. Chase prods with his bat, but the ball pitches slightly outside off and spins prodigiously. Takes the outside edge and Sarfraz follows the ball and takes a good catch. WI lose their first of the morning. 187/5
83.6 to J Blackwood, cleaned 'im up this time. Yasir strikes and Blackwood falls for 95. A gem of a delivery, the result of the new ball. Flatter trajectory on leg and middle, Blackwood plays for a bit if turn. But it isn't there. Skids on and strikes Blackwood on the pad before veering to hit the off stump. Doubt Blackwood would have been beaten had it not been the new ball. Great knock from Blackwood.. 244/6
89.4 to JO Holder, pinned in front! Holder misreads the length and is plumb in front. Five-for for Yasir. Holder doesn't bother reviewing. Yasir pushes this through on leg, skids on again. No turn. That was actually a very good length, Holder was unsure whether to come forward or go back. He stays back, plays for a bit of turn and is beaten on the inside edge. The ball carries on with its angle to hit Holder in front of leg. Great bowling, reward for Yasir's toil this morning. Holder asks for the review well after time, but the umpire tells him his time is up. 266/7
104.5 to ML Cummins, no doubts about this one. Ten in the match for Yasir. Lots of flight on that one and wide outside off, draws Cummins forward but the ball pitches and rips back in. Cummins plays inside the line and is beaten on the outside edge. The ball continues on its trajectory to hit the middle stump. Sensational bowling. Sublime variations in length and pace. 312/9
Zulfiqar Babar2255122.311032200
103.6 to SD Hope, taken! Superb catch. Superb bowling. Pitches this slightly short outside off, Hope sees the width and thinks of defending, but the ball spins prodigiously after pitching and takes the outside edge of Hope's withdrawing bat. Carries low to Younis' left at first slip and he takes a lovely reflex catch. Wanted to bail out of the stroke but it was a fraction of a second too late. Such fine margins in sport. 311/8
107.6 to D Bishoo, that's it. Pakistan seal the series. Misbah takes the catch and Pakistan win by 133 runs. Lots of flight from Babar on off, Bishoo gets low, looking to heave the flight over midwicket. Some extra bounce is responsible for a top edge. The ball lobs up towards midwicket, Misbah runs around and takes the catch.. 322/10
Mohammad Nawaz1002912.90390000
44.4 to KC Brathwaite, Nawaz goes up for a leg-before appeal, did it straighten enough? umpire Gough turns it down. Misbah wants a review. Pushed through quick from around the wicket, 90ks, good length, Brathwaite has had this tendency to camp on the back foot in this innings. The ball skids on and Brathwaite, looking to work to the leg side, is hit on the pad in front of middle and leg stump. HawkEye shows it would carry on to hit the top of leg stump. Pakistan's review is successful. 124/4
