All|Overs 1-50|Overs 51-100
W

to Ahmed Shehzad, out Caught by Dowrich!! So Ahmed Shehzad won't be there to hit the winning runs. Edges to the keeper. Wonder what was he trying there. Poked at a length ball that moved away with extra bounce, took the outside edge and flew to the right of the keeper. Dowrich flies to his right and takes a good one. Ahmed Shehzad c Dowrich b 6(8)

W

Joseph to Azhar Ali, out Bowled!! Caught in two minds is Azhar Ali there and ends up dragging one to his stumps. Decided to leave a length ball late. The ball took the bottom of the toe of the bat and jagged back on the stumps. Was not this supposed to be a cakewalk for the tourists? Azhar Ali b Joseph 1(9)

W

Bishoo to Younis Khan, out Lbw!! LBW shout from Bishoo and is given out by Richard Illingworth. Younis Khan takes the case upstairs. Front foot is just about okay for the review to take it to the next process. Looks like there is no bat involved. HawkEye confirms three reds and Pakistan lose another wicket. Coming to the ball, it was a full delivery on the stumps, Younis Khan was lazy on the flick and misses it. The ball hits low on the front pad and Illingworth had no doubts in mind. Raises his finger in a flash. Pakistan are making a little mess of this run chase. Younis Khan lbw b Bishoo 6(23)

6

Bishoo to Misbah, SIX, what a shot by the skipper. Dismissive!! It was tossed up outside off and Misbah clubs it over long-off for a huge six

6

Bishoo to Misbah, SIX, and Misbah finishes things off in style. Sinks low and slogs sweeps it over deep mid-wicket for his second six. Pakistan go 1-0 up in the series with that. Smiles all round the Pakistani camp

4

Abbas to Kraigg Brathwaite, FOUR, Abbas starts with a gentle loosener outside off. Kraigg Brathwaite leans onto the front foot and creams the drive past Misbah at mid-off. The ball have enough legs to hit the long-off fence

4

Abbas to K Powell, FOUR, too straight from Abbas. Powell gets across his stumps and clips it off the pads to deep mid-wicket. Second boundary of the over for West Indies

W

Shah to Kraigg Brathwaite, out Bowled!! Shah gets the breakthrough straightaway. Brathwaite had no clue of this quicker delivery. He is late on the ball and is stuck on the back foot to make matters worse. The ball sneaks under the bat and shatters his off-pole. is delighted with the breakthrough and so are the rest of the team. Kraigg Brathwaite b Shah 14(28) [4s-1]

4

Abbas to K Powell, FOUR, crisply done by Powell. Leans onto the front foot and creams the cover drive past mid-off. No need to run for those

4

Shah to K Powell, FOUR, Powell gets outside the line and takes it on the full to paddle it fine. Short fine leg fielder gives chase, but can only come second best as the ball raced away to the fence

4

to K Powell, FOUR, nicely played. Just extends his hands and steers it past gully

4

Shah to Hetmyer, FOUR, Hetmyer is a busy player. Shah bowls it on the pads, Hetmyer gets low and sweeps it behind square

4

to K Powell, FOUR, wow. Third boundary in three overs. Powell takes a cue from his partner. Just lunges across and thrashes it through cover

4

to Hetmyer, FOUR, over the keeper! Take your pick from the cliches: "You cannot place a fielder there," Or "Safest place on the field!" Hetmyer gets a top-edge on the pull. Flies over the keeper. A vicious bouncer from but no reward. Got to feel for him

4

to K Powell, FOUR, quality shot. Tad short outside off, Powell cashes the cheque, tilts his bat towards the ball and steers it past point

4

to K Powell, FOUR, poor ball from , looks for the reverse. Sprays it down leg, Powell gets inside the line and leg glances it fine

6

Shah to Hetmyer, SIX, what a shot. Hetmyer is not afraid to play his shots. Uses his feet, meets the pitch and dismisses it over long-on

W

Shah to Hetmyer, out Bowled!! Tigerish comeback from Shah. He has the last laugh. After getting smacked for a six previous ball, he produces a monster ball to send Hetmyer back to the hut. Dishes out a leg-break from outside off, gets it to spin and bounce rapidly at Hetmyer. He was backing away to counter it, the ball takes the inside edge, deflects his pad and then rolls back onto the stumps. He was totally cramped for room. Hetmyer b Shah 20(28) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

Shah to K Powell, FOUR, beautiful shot. Uses his feet, converts it into a half-volley and slams it wide of mid-off

W

Shah to Shai Hope, out Lbw!! Hope has been given OUT lbw. He has a chat with his partner and decides to review. Fair delivery. No bat involved. Hawkeye coming up: Pitched - in-line. Impact - in-line. Wickets - hitting. Three reds and Hope has to take the long walk back to the pavilion. West Indies lose a review. Shah continues to weave his magic. Pushes one faster and straighter, Hope gets forward on the defence, plays for the turn. Misses it completely and is pinged flush on the pad. Pretty adjacent and a good call from umpire Richard Illingworth. Shai Hope lbw b Shah 6(14)

4

Shah to K Powell, FOUR, lovely shot. Gets inches forward, extends his hands and drills it past mid-off

W

Shah to K Powell, out Caught by Younis Khan!! Look at him, just look at Shah go. He is on a roll here. West Indies are in deep trouble now. The well-set Powell has been chugged down. Slips in a googly does , pitches it just outside off and rips it just enough to take a faint edge. KP hangs his bat in despair and gives catching practice to Younis at first slip. and Pakistan are over the moon. K Powell c Younis Khan b Shah 49(84) [4s-9]

4

to Devendra Bishoo, leg byes, FOUR, errant line from , spills it down leg, the ball catches the pad and runs away to the fine leg fence

4

to Vishaul Anthony Singh, FOUR, Vishaul steers one to the boundary. Has that extra bit of time to negotiate with this back of a length and opens the bat face a touch to find the backward point fence

W

to Vishaul Anthony Singh, out Bowled!! Phew! What a ball from Mohammad . Vishaul Singh had no clue what was coming. gets the ball to shape in sharply from outside off. Vishaul decides to let that go and sees the off-stump cartwheeling. Vishaul didn't expect the ball to seam in so much. is delighted with the breakthrough. A much needed one for Pakistan. Vishaul Anthony Singh b 9(20) [4s-1]

4

Shah to Devendra Bishoo, FOUR, just over the top of mid-on. Bishoo sinks low to slog sweep it over the man for a boundary

4

Shah to Devendra Bishoo, FOUR, short and wide outside off, Bishoo cuts it past point and takes West Indies into the lead

4

Shah to Roston Chase, FOUR, quicker delivery outside off, Chase slashes at a wide delivery and collects four past point

W

Abbas to Devendra Bishoo, out Caught by Younis Khan!! Bishoo's resistance comes to an end. Not the ideal delivery to play at it. It was a good length delivery well outside off, Bishoo flashes at it with no feet movement and edges one to second slip. Younis Khan at slip doesn't disappoint you. Takes a good low catch and Pakistan are delighted. Devendra Bishoo c Younis Khan b Abbas 18(60) [4s-2]

W

Abbas to Dowrich, out Lbw!! Given out LBW on field. Dowrich takes the case upstairs immediately. They are checking if there is bat involved. Looks like there is no bat. HawkEye confirms three reds and West Indies lose yet another wicket and a review with it. Coming to the ball, this was angled in from wide of the stumps. Dowrich fell over on the flick and is pinged low on the pad dead in front of middle. It looked out for the naked eye and Richard Kettleborough has his finger up in a flash. HawkEye proves him right and West Indies sink further down. Dowrich lbw b Abbas 0(2)

4

Abbas to Holder, FOUR, Holder continues from where he left. Leans onto the front foot and creams the drive past diving cover fielder. No chance of stopping those once it beats the fielder. Gets off the mark with a boundary

4

Abbas to Roston Chase, FOUR, beautiful on-drive from Roston Chase. Got a full ball on his legs and did not hold on, clipped with a slightly straighter bat to beat the man at mid-on

4

Shah to Holder, FOUR, clean hit from Holder. Does not do much with the footwork, uses the flight and his reach to loft over Shah's head. One bounce over the ropes

4

to Holder, FOUR, opens the face of the bat at the last moment and runs down this defence past the gully region. The ball races to the fence

W

to Holder, out Caught by Sarfraz!! That's a loose shot from the skipper and he pays the price. Fuller ball outside off, well outside off. Holder would have done better to leave that. He did not, chased it with the drive. Did not bother to take the feet in line and edged to the keeper. Nice low catch taken by Sarfraz. Holder c Sarfraz b 14(25) [4s-3]

W

Shah to Alzarri Joseph, out Lbw!! Five-wicket haul for Shah. Truly deserves it. Alzarri Joseph committed too much as he got across to this drifter that straightened upon pitching. The bat got jammed into the pad which was in the line of the ball. The umpire did not have a doubt in mind, obliged the appeal in no time. Alzarri Joseph lbw b Shah 1(2)

W

Shah to Gabriel, out Caught by Mohammad Abbas!! It has gone high in the air. Someone from long-off runs in, and reverse cups it. Abbas is the fielder. Nothing shot from Gabriel, hoicked across the line and sliced it towards long-off. Two fielders converged but Abbas called in time to grab that one. So Pakistan need 32 to go 1-0 up in the series. Gabriel c Mohammad Abbas b Shah 0(3)

4

Joseph to Azhar Ali, FOUR, bit of away swing for Joseph, but the line and length isn't good. Overpitched outside off, Ali latches onto it. He crouches low and creams the cover drive. All along the ground into the fence

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, good shot to open your account. Pitched up delivery on off, Shehzad leans forward and drives it the ground between the bowler and mid-off. Didn't try to hit that hard. Relied on timing and earned a boundary

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, poor delivery and gets the treatment it deserved! Short and wide outside off, Shehzad goes deep in his crease, gets on top of the bounce and scythes it away behind point. Got the placement right and there is none to stop that

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, wow! Classy shot. Overpitched just outside off, Ali leans onto it and offers the full face of the bat to drive it superbly down the ground. An eye-pleasing stroke that reaches the fence rolling all along the ground

W

Joseph to Azhar Ali, out Caught by Dowrich!! The wide one does get a wicket for Joseph. Azhar Ali will be cursing himself all day. Outswinger that was short and wide outside off. That should have been left alone. Ali chases that with a horizintal blade and gets an outside edge. Dowrich moves to his right and completes a good diving catch. A prized wicket for the hosts. Azhar Ali c Dowrich b Joseph 15(19) [4s-2]

4

Joseph to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, nicely played. Short ball that lacks venom, Shehzad pulls it witheringly in front of square

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, beautiful shot from Shehzad. Leans forward to this half-volley and drives it straight down the ground. Elegance written all over it

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, the short ball ain't working for and West Indies. This short ball sits up nicely for Shehzad, who pivots back and nails the pull through mid-wicket

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, delicately played. Sees the short ball outside off, Azam opens the bat face a touch and steers it past the slip cordon

W

to Ahmed Shehzad, out Lbw!! Plumbahhh. strikes. Excellent plan by the skipper, set him up beautifully. After a slew of away swingers, gets this one to scissor back in sharply from a length. Shehzad was caught in the crease, doesn't account for the inward shape. Is late to bring his bat down and the ball pings him on the back pad. Looked dead straightaway and he doesn't bother to review it. Walks off. Ahmed Shehzad lbw b 31(50) [4s-5]

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, top shot from Azam. bowls it in the driving arc, Azam leans forward and drills it through extra cover. The mid-off fielder gave a chase but to no avail

D

to Babar Azam, no run, oh my word! Did that carry? Looks like it did. almost pulled off a spectacular catch. Azam checks his drive uppishly back to the bowler, bends in his followthrough and hangs his left hand. The ball almost stuck in his hand but pops out just in time. He tried taking it on the second attempt but in vain. Sports a cheeky smile on his face. Top effort, skippa..

6

Bishoo to Babar Azam, SIX, Azam has had enough. Runs out of patience and clubs one over deep mid-wicket

4

Joseph to Babar Azam, FOUR, over gully! Joseph shortens his length and provides room, Azam arches his back a little and flays it over gully. High percentage shot as he was well in control there

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, overpitched and on the pads, easy pickings for Azam. Fliks it fine and the ball races away into the fine leg fence

4

Bishoo to Younis Khan, FOUR, good shot! Dances down, gets to the pitch and lifts it over wide mid-on. One bounce and into the fence

4

to Younis Khan, byes, FOUR, that's wayward! In an attempt to bowl very fast, loses his radar. Way down the leg-side. Dowrich can't get there with a dive. Should have been called as a wide. No, just four byes

4

Chase to Babar Azam, FOUR, drops it short on this off-break. Easy to put that away. Azam rocks back and cuts it behind point who gives a chase only to escort it into the fence

4

Chase to Younis Khan, FOUR, Younis Khan scales Mount 10k. And what a symbolic way to get there. First Pakistani to reach the landmark and 13th overall to join the club. What a moment. Well done Younis! Sinks low and sweeps it past the man at 45. The fielder dives but fails to stop the ball. Sports a wide grin as he takes his helmet off, waves his bat and punches the 'Star' sign badge on his shirt. Leaps up in the air and exults in delight. Emotional moment for sure. The dressing room stands up and applauds

4

Chase to Babar Azam, FOUR, now Azam takes a cue from his partner and raises the landmark in style. Goes deep and cuts this flatter ball past point. Brings up his fifty

4

Joseph to Babar Azam, FOUR, poor line, veers it down leg, Azam just tickles it fine

4

Brathwaite to Younis Khan, FOUR, edged and four. Younis plays it with soft hands, gets an outside edge that runs away to the third man fence

4

Chase to Younis Khan, FOUR, 100-run stand comes up between the two. Too easy for Younis, mounts his charge and uses his feet. Meets the pitch and handsomely drives it past mid-off

6

Brathwaite to Younis Khan, SIX, oh goodness! He breaks the shackles now. Saunters down the track, gets to the pitch and hammers it over long-on

OT

Brathwaite to Younis Khan, 1 run, another milestone for Younis. Raises his 33rd Test fifty. Subtle raise of the bat to soak in the applause from the dressing room. Glances it away stylishly to get there. He's making his farewell series quite memorable. Can he convert it into three-figure mark?

4

Bishoo to Younis Khan, FOUR, lovely shot from Younis. Skips out, converts it into a full toss by making room and whiplashes it past mid-off

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, full and in the driving zone, Azam accepts the invition and spanks it fabulously through cover

W

to Younis Khan, out Caught by Kraigg Brathwaite!! strikes totally against the run of play! He gets the big wicket of Younis Khan. Pitched up off-pace delivery outside off, it was there in the slot for it to be driven. Younis presses forward and middles the drive. He didn't bother to keep it down and thus paid the price. It was dipping as it was approaching Brathwaite at cover, who gets low and gobbles it up. 50th Test wicket for . Younis Khan c Kraigg Brathwaite b 58(138) [4s-5 6s-1]

W

to Babar Azam, out Bowled!! Chopped on! They're checking if it's a fair delivery. Yes, it is. Two wickets in quick succession and both the settled batsmen are back in the hut. A shortish ball outside off at 138kph that decks in. Azam is late to bring his bat down. Gets an inside edge that cannons onto the stumps. Babar Azam b 72(201) [4s-8 6s-1]

OT

Joseph to Misbah, no run, huge shout for lbw, turned down by umpire Richard Illingworth. Holder decides to review. Fair delivery. Big inside edge. There you go. WI lose a review. Shortish length outside off that cuts in. Misbah brings his bat down at an angle and gets an inside edge onto the pad. The impact was anyway outside the line of off-stump. HawkEye shows it to be missing off-pole by a long way

4

to Shafiq, FOUR, almost a wicket! After all those blocks, Shafiq almost nicked one down the leg-side. Rib-tickler, Shafiq gets into an awkward position and gets a glove on it. Dowrich is slightly late to go to his left. It was dipping as well. Fails to stop it and the ball runs away

OT

Joseph to Misbah, no run, the keeper goes up straightaway. Nothing from the bowler. Appeal for caught behind. Holder reviews. Fair delivery. Glove or thigh pad? I reckons it's the latter. Yup. The on-field call stays. It was a shortish ball down leg, Misbah moves across and looks to glance it away. Fails to connect and the ball strikes the thigh pad. Dowrich takes a good diving catch to his left. The skipper could have consulted with the bowler before going up. WI lose both their reviews. Bad light forces early stumps

4

to Shafiq, FOUR, some room outside off this time. Shafiq stays in the crease and guides between the man at point at gully. And because it is a new nut, it manages to beat the two chasers

4

Joseph to Shafiq, leg byes, FOUR, poor delivery from Joseph, ends up on the legs of Shafiq. The latter gets across to tickle it fine. And even though he does not get a bat to that, the ball manages to race away to the fine leg fence after deflecting off the legs

4

Joseph to Shafiq, FOUR, half-volley and Shafiq punishes it. Presents the full face of the bat and drives past the bowler

4

Joseph to Shafiq, FOUR, dropped at second slip. Shafiq fences this length ball outside off and edges to the right of the fielder, who for all his acrobatics, is not quick enough to pouch it. Got both hands to it though

W

to Shafiq, out Caught by Dowrich!! This is one wicket where you can say the bowler has worked hard for it. With nothing really happening off the deck, has kept his pace up there and finally gets rewarded. There is some extra bounce around off and Shafiq wants to defends, leaves himself opened-up a bit by not getting across completely and ends up edging to the keeper. Shafiq c Dowrich b 22(67) [4s-4]

4

Joseph to Sarfraz, FOUR, short and wide. Sarfraz is not going to let that go. Goes for the expansive cut and top edges over the slip cordon... one bounce over the ropes at third man

OT

to Misbah, 2 runs, glances to fine leg. Wants the second, Sarfraz does not see that. Is finally coaxed into going for it. Somhow manages to reach the bowler's end

4

Bishoo to Sarfraz, FOUR, another short delivery from Bishoo. This time Sarfraz is quick to pick the length and deposit the ball to deep mid-wicket with a well timed pull

6

Bishoo to Sarfraz, SIX, top shot from Sarfraz. Sinks low and thumps this flighted delivery to cow corner fence with a perfectly executed slog sweep

4

to Misbah, FOUR, full toss on the pads, Misbah flicks it to deep square leg. The ball just manages to dribble over the ropes

OT

Bishoo to Misbah, no run, West Indies take the LBW shout upstairs. Given notout on field. Front foot is well inside the popping crease. There is no bat involved too. HawkEye shows the ball will spin past the off-stump and they lose a review. Misbah has a big stride forward and defends it with the pad. The ball hits him low on the pad in front of middle and off stump. Richard Kettleborough's decision stays

4

to Sarfraz, FOUR, Sarfraz walks a long way across his stumps and gets a tickle down to fine leg. Would have been a goner had he missed that. He gets a lot of wood for the ball to crash into the fine leg fence

4

to Sarfraz, FOUR, half-volley outside off, Sarfraz reaches out for it and drives it to sweeper cover fence. Scores are level with that boundary

4

Bishoo to Sarfraz, FOUR, excellent from Sarfraz. Sees the half-tracker outside off and dabs it fine towards third man. Short third man had no chance of cutting that

OT

6

Chase to Misbah, SIX, Misbah jumps down the track in a flash and thumps it over the cow corner for a huge six

W

Bishoo to Sarfraz, out Bowled!! It has paid off. The angle from round the wicket has done wonders for Bishoo. Seems to have taken a cue from his counterpart. Sarfraz tries to play his go-to shot - the sweep. It was looped up straighter on the stumps, he plonked his front foot across and exposed all the three stumps. Misjudges it completely and the furniture is disturbed. A wicket that will lift the sagging spirits of West Indies. Much needed. Sarfraz b Bishoo 54(70) [4s-5 6s-1]

OT

Bishoo to Misbah, 1 run, 37th Test fifty for Misbah. Just a nurdle off the pads to get there. Subtle salute off the bat to the dressing room

D

Joseph to Amir, no run, did that carry? Oh yes! It did. Difficult chance but these are regulation catches in Test cricket. Amir pendulums his fishing rod and quells it uppishly to gully. The fielder prances low to his left, goes with both hands but shells it

6

Bishoo to Amir, SIX, Amir takes the aggressive route. Sinks low and fetches the slog-sweep from outside off and powers it over deep mid-wicket

W

Joseph to Amir, out Caught by Dowrich!! It was only a matter of time. Amir looked fidgety and never looked like spending some time in the crease. He falls into Joseph's trap. Angles a back of a length delivery across outside off, Amir was caught fishing at it. Manifests a faint edge and Dowrich ain't dropping those. Seven down now. Amir c Dowrich b Joseph 11(18) [6s-1]

4

Joseph to Riaz, FOUR, "He doesn't need a sighter," gushes Ian Bishop on air. Riaz isn't intimidated by Amir's dismissal. Sees the width outside off and slashes his horizontal blade. Fiercely cuts it past point

4

Joseph to Riaz, Four, Half-volley outside off and Riaz pounces onto it. Leans forward and times it crisply past mid-off. Races away to the fence

W

Joseph to Riaz, out Bowled!! He's done him. Quite similar to the last ball, slanted in from wide of the crease to create the angle. Just a curl back and snaps the defense of Riaz to unseat the bail. Lovely bowling from Joseph. Knived him into two and beat him on the inside edge for the second time. Riaz b Joseph 9(14) [4s-2]

OT

to Misbah, no run, Reviewed. Appeal for a caught behind against Misbah. Not a no-ball. The bat has definitely hit the pad and there is some daylight between the bat and the ball. Not out. Misbah wanted to defend off the front foot and was beaten by the late movement

4

to Misbah, FOUR, slipping down. Misbah tries the flick and gets a fine edge to the fine leg fence

4

to Misbah, FOUR, swings wildly at this full ball and gets it in the gap through mid-wicket. Races to the fence

4

to Yasir Shah, FOUR, uses the angle and tickles it to the fine leg fence. Might have gloved it. Won't mind, as long as they fetch runs

W

to Yasir Shah, out Yasir Shah Run Out!! Yasir Shah pats to short cover and wants to get off the strike. Misbah is not interested in the run and denies it. By the time Yasir Shah decides to go back, it is late... too late. The substitute has marked his spot, breaks the stumps with a direct hit at the striker's end. Pakistan are 9 down now. Yasir Shah run out (Blackwood) 8(23) [4s-1]

4

to Misbah, FOUR, tails in a touch on the legs of Misbah, who uses it to his good effect. Moves across and clips through mid-wicket to beat two men who tried to chase it

4

to Misbah, FOUR, full ball. Misbah flicks and gets it through the man at mid-wicket. Once it has gone past the man in the ring, it is always going to the fence

6

Bishoo to Misbah, SIX, sinks low and slogs across the line, against the turn and clears the deep mid-wicket fence

6

Bishoo to Misbah, SIX, now he throws his bat at it. Does so sensibly by going with the turn to make Joseph a spectator at long-off, moves into the 90s

W

Chase to Mohammad Abbas, out Lbw!! They will review it! Mohammad Abbas has been given lbw. He has to review that. He thinks he has hit it. Front foot is fine. No bat to the naked eye. Replays to ascertain whether there was bat or not. No conclusive evidence to term the edge. Here's the HawkEye: Clipping the top of leg. He is gone. Mohammad Abbas is gone. That does not matter. What matters is that Misbah was stranded not out on 99. He deserved the ton but ran out of men in the end. It was a flatter ball to which Abbas went back to defend, missed and was given lbw on field. Challenged but to no avail. Mohammad Abbas lbw b Chase 1(21)

W

Abbas to Kraigg Brathwaite, out Caught by Younis Khan!! Edged and taken. Maiden Test wicket for Abbas. What a start to his Test career. Jason Holder said that there will be something in the pitch for the bowlers and rightaway, Abbas has exploited the swinging conditons and provided the breakthrough for his team. Shortened his length and gets it to wobble away in that channel of decombobulation. Brathwaite looked a bit iffy in the first over and he has a tentative poke at this from the crease. Manifests a thickish outside edge that went low to second slip. Younis Khan prances forward and snaffles a good low catch. Abbas exults in delight and lets out a loud roar. Kraigg Brathwaite c Younis Khan b Abbas 0(5)

4

Abbas to Hetmyer, FOUR, no half measures. Sees the width and goes hard at this short of length delivery outside off, ekes out a thickish outside edge that flies over the slip cordon. First boundary in Test cricket for Hetmyer

4

Abbas to Hetmyer, FOUR, classic shot from Hetmyer. Leans nicely forward, presents a full face of the bat and crunches it past mid-off. No need to run for those. Elegance writter all over it

W

to Hetmyer, out Bowled!! Knocked him over. is pumped. He is rewarded for his tight bowling. What a ball. Tailed back in sharply from a length, Hetmyer was caught in his crease. Was late to get his bat down and the ball sneaks through to rattle the stumps. Beautifully set up the batsman there. So the impressive stay from the debutant comes to an end. In fact, it was a scrambled seam delivery from , maybe that did the trick. West Indies are two down and are in some trouble now. Hetmyer b 11(20)

W

to Shai Hope, out Bowled!! Cleaned him up. The off-stump takes a beating. This is exhilarating stuff from . Talk about purchasing wicket in Tests. A perfect delivery this, pacy and full, cuts back in viciously from a fuller length, Hope is beaten for pace. The ball kept a little low and that duped Hope. Was late in his defence and the ball fizzed through to crash the off-pole. West Indies are quaking. gets his second wicket. Shai Hope b 2(21)

4

to K Powell, FOUR, shortish outside off and Powell makes use of that, goes back and thrashes past backward point

W

to Vishaul Anthony Singh, out Caught by Azhar Ali!! Azhar Ali takes a good low catch at square leg. has snared Singh with some smart bowling. Was a bit short, had bowled a bouncer too and now follows with a full ball on the legs. Vishaul gets across to flick, falls over a bit and is unable to keep it along the ground. Debut innings comes to a premature end. Vishaul Anthony Singh c Azhar Ali b 9(20) [4s-1]

4

Shah to Roston Chase, FOUR, tossed up delivery. Roston Chase leans into the drive and beats cover

W

to K Powell, out Caught by Younis Khan!! Gone. Very loose and lapse in concentration from Powell. Just 2 balls after lunch, Pakistan have struck. The hosts slide further down the mire. Half the side back in the hut. The sucker ball from , bowls it full outside off and watches all the fun. Powell goes for an flashy drive without any feet movement. The ball nips away just a touch to kiss the outside edge and flew to Younis at second slip who shows great reflexes to pouch that with both hands. Safe as houses. goes off for a celebratory run with his arms aloft in joy. K Powell c Younis Khan b 33(71) [4s-2]

4

Abbas to Roston Chase, FOUR, gorgeous from Chase. Just extends his hands into this classy punch and fillets it through cover. Don't bother chasing those

4

Abbas to Roston Chase, leg byes, FOUR, Abbas' radar goes a bit wonky. Sprays it on the pads and Chase misses his glance. Brushes the pad and rolls to the left of the keeper who fails to stop that

4

Shah to Roston Chase, FOUR, crunched. Leans forward and drills this full ball through extra cover

6

Shah to Roston Chase, SIX, this is huge. No real trek down the track but the length is there for Roston Chase to free his arms. Launches it over the man at mid-on

4

to Roston Chase, FOUR, angling and losing the line a bit. Roston Chase gets across and tucks it fine, races away to the fence

OT

Shah to Dowrich, leg byes, 1 run, they have reviewed an lbw call. This time Shah was confident. Drifts this into Dowrich and the batsman misses the defence. Replays are out: it clearly pitched outside leg so we won't look any further. Will be a leg bye for the hosts

OT

W

Shah to Roston Chase, out Caught by Riaz!! Oh goodness! Has he taken it? He has. Wahab Riaz pulls off a blinder of a catch. Hold on! The umpires aren't sure, they have a chat and decide to send the matter upstairs. The soft signal is out. Fair delivery. Looks fine to me. OUT flashes on the screen. Needed some brilliance like this to break the stand. What an absolute screamer. Let me explain how it happened: Chase miscues a loft straight down the ground. Riaz from mid-on, backtracked, transfixed his eyes on the ball and clasps it airborne near the boundary ropes. He tumbles over and makes sure his body doesn't get in contact with the rope.

4

Shah to Devendra Bishoo, FOUR, this looked plain miscued. Off the inside half of the blade. Reaches in front and has to wrist his slog-sweep, being unable to get to the pitch of the ball. Looked like a six but it just bounces inside the deep mid-wicket ropes

4

Shah to Holder, FOUR, 'tis is an audacious hit. Makes room for this, goes inside out and hits it flat over the covers
