Commentary (West Indies innings)

So that ends our coverage of the second T20I between West Indies and Pakistan. The Men in Green clawed their way back and won their 6th T20I in a row. They have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in this 4-match series. The hosts once again crumbled under pressure. However, they still have 2 matches left and can still level this series. The next game takes place on 1st April at 1230 local time (1630 GMT) at the same venue. Until then, take care! Cheers!

Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed thanks the almighty. Feels that the way they started was not good but Shadab bowled really well. Adds that the boys played well. Mentions that Shadab Khan is a brilliant bowler and he should continue his efforts. Ends by thanking the coaching staff as they have been very supportive.

Man of the Match, Shadab Khan thanks the almighty for the win and his performance. Feels that it was a similar wicket to Barbados but was a touch slower and had more turn in it. Picking Samuels' wicket was a crucial one and was very happy after taking it.

West Indies skipper, Carlos Brathwaite thinks that his team started well with the ball but then let it slip. Adds that they have a team plan but it's upto individuals to execute it. And mentions that there's still a lot to improve. Reckons that after seeing the result one thinks that one should have done things the other way round. The plan was right but the execution wasn't.

Marlon Samuels was batting well and looked in good flow. He played some classic shots and stitched a 50-run stand with Walton, keeping the Windies in the hunt. But it was Shadab Khan who foxed him and that swung the momentum in favour of the tourists. There was a 33-run stand from 32 balls for the 7th wicket between Holder and Brathwaite with the former being the aggressor. The skipper was perhaps slow to get going and it put his side under pressure. Finally, Hasan Ali bowled an intelligent final over and defended 13 runs to lead his side to victory.

What a nail-biter the match turned out to be! Kudos to Pakistan for holding their nerves and coming out on top in this cliff-hanger. They now lead the 4-match T20I series 2-0 and cannot lose it from here. The visitors kept on taking regular wickets and didn't let the hosts off the hook. It was a modest score that they had posted on the board but the way their bowlers defended it deserves appreciation. Shadab Khan was once again sensational and weaved his magic around. He ended with figures of 4-1-14-4 and triggered a collapse.

19.6 H Ali to J Holder, PAKISTAN WIN BY 3 RUNS! Well done, Hasan Ali. The young man has kept his nerves and led his side to a sensational victory. Very full outside off, Holder can only jam it beside the pitch on the off side and take a single. Hasan Ali is pumped up and so are his teammates. A brilliant game of cricket this has been! 129/8

SAMUEL BADREE walks out in the middle. But it's Jason Holder facing the last ball. 5 runs are needed off it. Can the ODI skipper win it for the Windies?

19.5 H Ali to S Narine, OUT! NARINE GETS RUN OUT! And Pakistan inch closer! Short of a length ball on middle, Narine looks to pull it but drags it back towards Ali. Holder wants strike and takes off but Narine reacts late. Ali has ample time to go back to the bowler's end and whips the bails off calmly. 128/8

19.4 H Ali to S Narine, Intelligent bowling by Ali. He bowls a slower delivery and it's on a length and it's cutting across, Narine swings across the line but misses. 5 runs needed from 2 balls. 128/7

Pressure on both the teams! After conceding boundaries off the first two deliveries, he bowls a dot ball but then bowls a wide delivery. The pendulum is swinging to and fro. Meanwhile, both the batsmen gather in the middle to have a chat while Sarfraz also gives Hasan a piece of advice. 5 runs are needed off 3 deliveries.

19.4 H Ali to S Narine, Wide! Ali sprays it down the leg side this time, Narine looks to pick it up over square leg but misses. It is a matter of nerves now. Who can hold it in the end and emerge victorious? 128/7

HASAN ALI comes into the attack.

The physio is out in the middle to treat Ahmed Shehzad. While running towards the ball, he collided with Walton. Walton happened to step on Shehzad's right hand and then his left knee hit the neck. He is in extreme pain. His teammates circle around and check on him. The ambulance arrives and out comes the stretcher. He is carried off. Doesn't look good but hope he gets fine.

3.6 S Tanvir to M Samuels, Length delivery, angling across, Samuels defends it with soft hands beside the pitch. Shehzad from point sprints towards the ball but fails to pick it. As Walton tries to complete the run, he steps on Shehzad's right hand and then collides with him. 20/1

Evin Lewis gets blinded and loses his bat in the process. Wasim has hit the bull's eye and the umpire takes it upstairs. The southpaw seems to be struggling.

The mid off fielder comes to the stumps and tries to effect a run out but Lewis had made it in. 5/0
