West Indies



Overs: 20.0 / 20.0


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.

Presentation time.

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."

Sarfraz Ahmed:

19.6Hasan Ali to JO Holder, 1 run, 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.
19.5Hasan Ali to SP Narine, OUT, No run, 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..
19.4Hasan Ali to SP Narine, No run, 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..
19.4Hasan Ali to SP Narine, WIDE, 1 run, 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..
19.3Hasan Ali to SP Narine, No run, finally adjusts his length. A shorter length outside off, Narine swings and misses. No bye. Important dot ball.
19.2Hasan Ali to SP Narine, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, 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.
19.1Hasan Ali to SP Narine, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, 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..

rssampat: "The top 3 of the WI should simply aim to be around 60/1 after 10 overs as the WI have more than capable power hitters to chase down 73 off the next 10 with 9 wickets in hand. Simple really."
