it's just one. It's a pretty good place to bowl and he's done it. A wide yorker outside off, Holder stays in his crease and can only bunt the ball towards point for a run. Pakistan have defended 132 by three runs to ensure they can't lose the series. WI have somehow found a way to lose, again. Relief on Pakistan's faces
4.00pm For so long, it seemed like West Indies were cruising. It wasn't a big chase either. But they just haven't created a winning habit to find a way to win clutch, tough moments in games like these. It's the second-lowest total successfully defended by Pakistan in T20Is. With 14 required off 6, and then 6 off 4, Hasan Ali delivered four decent balls to win Pakistan the game. It was Shadab again, who led Pakistan with 4 for 14.
Carlos Brathwaite: "We started beautifully, we let it slip. We drop a catch, and we misfielded, didn't do it in the backend with the bat. We have a team plan, but it's up to the guys to express what they want. We are showing progression: we had the opportunity but couldn't win. It's about self-reflection."
Shadab Khan is the Man of the Match: "A slower pitch than Barbados, was getting more turn."
Sarfraz Ahmed: "Starting wasn't good, but we finished well. It looked a good pitch, but it's slow."
5 off 1 ball. Four takes us to a super-over. Holder on strike. badree walks out without a cap or helmet.
whoops, it's a run-out without a run. Pakistan are back. Good length delivery on middle, Narine toe-ends his swat back to the bowler. Holder thinks he is run-out but Narine ensures he passes Holder, sacrificing himself.
Holder comes down, probably tells Narine we're running
another slower ball, that's where he needed to be at the start of the over. A slower offcutter outside off, Narine loses his shape as he fails to pick the slower ball. A play and miss.
Third man and fine leg are up. Point and cover are too.
oh my. WI fans have never been happier since the 2016 World T20. A full delivery that drifts down leg for a leg side wide. Finally, there is voice in the stands.
6 off 3
finally adjusts his length. A shorter length outside off, Narine swings and misses. No bye. Important dot ball
oh no. It's a low full toss from Hasan Ali. Another one that is full. Narine stays low, picks the full toss and hits the ball in the best possible place. Right over the bowler's head. Four. Brathwaite is finally happy
The slower ball?
finds the boundary does Narine. If there was one place you don't want to bowl, it's there. Full and straight, in the arc. Narine heaves the ball into the gap at midwicket and he finds four. Wow.
Hasan Ali will bowl. 14 off 6. Narine is on strike. Imperative that bat meets ball for WI. One boundary changes things dramatically. Will it be the yorker or the slower ball? The wide yorker? It's noisy at the Queen's Park Oval. It's pressure.
a high full toss outside off and Holder misses it. Another bad ball, but Wahab gets away with it. Superb over despite two bad balls to round up his spell
that's four of them. After nailing all his yorkers, he misses this and pays a big big price. On a length on leg, Holder swings, makes contact and finds the boundary behind square.
hammered but straight to cover. Just one. This is excellent bowling from Wahab
another dot. Full and straight, misses the yorker but Narine, being new to the crease, can't time the ball cleanly. Back to the bowler. None off this over
19 off 10. Here's Narine
bowled. Big wicket. Full and straight from Wahab Riaz. Full throttle. Brathwaite swings across the line and misses. The stumps are disturbed and Pakistan have an opening. The third umpire wants to check a no-ball and it's mighty close, but there is a smidgen behind at first point of impact. He shouldn't be that close though
excellent bowling. A full and wide yorker, Brathwaite beaten for pace. Can't make contact. Dot
Wahab to bowl the penultimate over. Boom or bust?
happy to take what they can. Length delivery outside off, Brathwaite opens the face and guides the ball to short third man. End of Tanvir's spell.
20 off 13. 10 off this over already
on a length on leg, nudged to midwicket. Just one.
just short of long-on. Back of a length on middle and leg, Brathwaite muscles a delivery down to long-on. Malik thinks of going in, but bails out.
length on middle, pushed down towards long-on. Just one
huuuge! Big hit. Slower delivery outside off, Holder gets under the length and lofts the ball cleanly and easily over long-off. What a clutch hit that
Required rate over 10 now
excellent yorker. Full, straight and accurate. Jammed down to long-on
dot ball to finish. A slower length delivery outside off, Holder gets beside the ball, looking to go over cover but fails to connect
