  1. Pak 56-3


    Oh, Babar Azam. He takes on the Oshane Thomas short ball, slightly less threatening than the Andre Russell thunderbolts, and hoicks it through mid-wicket for a gorgeous four.

    Well, that’s me singing Beach Boys for the rest of the day. Thanks for that, Jon.

    Here’s right-armer Oshane Thomas.

    Jon Hullis: I can’t hear Babar Azam without singing The Beach Boys “Barbara Ann”. And now nor can you.

    Naveed Afzal: Yes Russell is bowling aggressively but Pakistan are allowing him to just bowl short without any pressure.

    Sohail just got himself out there. Again, all the pressure on Babar

  4. Pak 50-3

    Sarafarz Ahmed is off the mark, tickling a leggy delivery down to the boundary for four.

    Carlos Brathwaite, still ruminating on that dropped catch, looks thrilled.

    Babar Azam averages 102 against West Indies.

    Not a man you want to be dropping…

  6. Babar dropped on 12


    Shimron Hetmyer should have clung on to this. He’s lurking at backward point and Babar Azam cuts the ball straight to him. He leans back, gets both hands to it, and then juggles it down to the floor.

  7. Post update

    Just a casual wicket-maiden from Andre Russell in the 10th over of the match.

    Carlos Brathwaite will continue.

  8. Pak 45-3

    Andre Russell has figures of 3-1-4-2 to his name.

    Here’s how he got one of those wickets.

  9. Pak 45-3

    Here’s the Pakistan captain, and he jabs his bat down on a terrific Andre Russell yorker first up.

    A brilliant piece of bowling! Andre Russell got it in the perfect area, it bounced and left the batsman. That is high quality fast bowling.

  12. WICKET

    Haris c S Hope b Russell 8 (Pak 45-3)

    And it works!

    It’s a 90mph beauty from Andre Russell. There’s bounce, the ball climbing and climbing, and Haris Sohail is off the ground as he tries to play an uppercut. A thick outside edge flies through to Shai Hope, who ends up taking the catch at chin-height.

    That is a brilliant bit of bowling.

  13. Post update




    Andre Russell is not here to play. Umpire Marais Erasmus has a quiet word in his ear as he walks back to his mark.

  14. Post update

  15. Pak 45-2

    Tidy enough from Carlos Brathwaite, conceding just three from his opening over.

  16. Post update

    A change of bowling – here’s Carlos Brathwaite.

    Ilyas Najib: Today’s game will either be a high scoring 320+ contest or a low scoring one sided affair. There is no in between with these side

    GC Cricket: Two good batting lineups with impressive recent form, two bowling lineups with room for improvement, typically high-scoring ground – 350 plays 350? Maybe even higher

  18. Andre Russell gets on to a batsman very quickly. His short balls hurry Babar Azam along, the batsman ducking and swaying his way underneath a Russell bouncer.

    There’s a bit of booing from the Pakistan fan as Russell whistles down another bouncer to end the over.

  19. Post update

    Here is the first Pakistan wicket that fell.

    Any time you pick up a couple of early wickets it changes the whole feeling around a team. Look at West Indies, they are all bubbling, chirping away. They are right on top of Pakistan at the moment.
