Afridi comes into the attack, a change of hair style for him. Just three from his first over.
Hafeez gives away two runs, West Indies not looking to attack.
Riaz chips in with another quick over, only a single from it.
Hafeez starts to bowl, he is also a clever and effective spinner. There is spin in the pitch, as Hafeez pitches it up to Samuels who defends it. Just a single from the over.
Riaz continues, Hafeez will be Pakistan's fifth bowler. Three singles from the first three balls and a quick single from the fifth. After 17 overs West Indies are 33 for 3.
Ajmal putting a lot of revolutions on the ball and Samuels not picking him. A few keeping low and the batsmen are going on the back foot to the deliveries that they should be playing on the front foot. Three runs from the over.
Riaz continues, with Ajmal bowling spin from the other end. Another good combination of bowling for Pakistan. A loose shot from Samuels, lucky he did not get bat on it. This will be a test for the West Indian middle order, the pressure building and some good bowling to bat against. After 15 overs, West Indies are 26 for 3.
The sun is bright and warm and the umbrellas come out. Ajmal to continue with the required rate almost touching 5.5 per over. A big shout against Simmons for lbw but it may have been going down leg. Simmons not picking Ajmal at all, just a single from the over.
Riaz is bowling really well here, maintaining the pressure created by the opening bowlers, and he is also backed up by some good fielding. Just a couple of runs from the over, WI 24 for 3.
Here is spin in the form of Saeed Ajmal. A couple of runs from his over, two singles.
First bowling change for Pakistan, Riaz comes in to bowl. Riaz gets the edge but it falls short of the stumps. A maiden from Riaz, West Indies 20 for 3 after 11.
Samuels gets a boundary through mid off, a good drive slowing getting his groove back. Another boundary for Samuels, finding his timing and the next ball goes through him between bat and pads. Ali responding with an inswinger that almost hits the off stump.
Simmons getting some good length balls and then a shorter one that bounces on him. Five good balls, well directed and then one slightly down leg side and the umpire calls it wide. Just a single from the wide, a very good over.
Asad Ali brings one back into Samuels who manages to get his bat down just in time. Some good bowling from the Pakistani pace battery and good variation too. Irfan provides the pace and bounce and Ali brings the seam and swing, both keeping the batsmen guessing.
Irfan continues, in his 4th over now. Irfan going across Samuels, almost gets the edge again. Samuels was dismissed in the tri-nation series in a similar way and Pakistan have done their homework on him. After 7 overs, West Indies are 9 for 3.
Ali keeps the pressure on with some good bowling, Samuels looks out of touch with some poor timing. Samuels off the mark with an outside edge, a single to third man.
WICKET! After a edged boundary from Bravo, Irfan gets his edge and is caught behind. Bravo walks even before the umpire gives him out. Another big appeal, first ball to Samuels but it may have been pitching outside leg. Then he goes across Samuels and almost gets the edge. WICKET! Misbah hits the stumps and Gayle is short of his ground. If the good bowling was not enough to get the wickets, some good fielding definitely is, West Indies lose Gayle to a suicidal single. Two wickets in that over.
Ali keeps going past Darren Bravo's outside edge, Bravo beaten a few times with the ball seaming away. A single from the last ball.
Gayle gets hit on the thigh and again. Irfan is tall, fast and is on his mark today. Even Gayle is finding it difficult against him. A good maiden from Irfan and even better because it is against Gayle.
Asad Ali shares the new ball with Irfan. Asad Ali is playing his 3rd ODI and starts off well, just a single from his over. West Indies 2 for 1.
Irfan starts the bowling for Pakistan. WICKET! The pace and the swing did him. Charles goes, but what a delivery that was, full and fast and swinging. Pakistan get their first wicket in the first over. A successful over for Pakistan.
Pakistan finish their innings with 224 for 9, they were in all sorts of trouble at 23 for 4, but a partnership between Misbah and Afridi rebuilt their innings. Good bowling from Holder at the start of the innings, took the early wickets to put West Indies on top. WI need 225 from to win.
Ajmal swings and gets two at midwicket, mishit again but he is getting some runs for Pakistan. Much better shot this time, straight down the ground and gets a single. Ajmal not happy with Ali as there was a couple of runs there but Ali drops the bat. Ali comes down the pitch and hits it over the midwicket for a six, good shot. Ali is bowled and Bravo gets the WICKET with a yorker. One ball to go in the innings, one wicket remaining and Pakistan need as many runs as they can get. Mohammad Irfan comes to the crease and hits it like a bullet through long off for four. Pakistan end with 224 for 9 from their 50 overs.
Ali ducks to a short ball and it hits the bat and they get a single, then Ajmal swings and misses to a slower ball. Then he practices that shot and smiles at Pollard. Ajmal edges it past the keeper for four, not convincing at all but helpful runs for Pakistan. After 49 overs, Pakistan 211 for 8.
A change of bats for Misbah who becomes a batsman with the most amount of fifties without a hundred. Ajmal tries the flick but misses and it is called a wide down leg. Ajmal swings and gets a single to square leg, did not connect properly. WICKET! Bravo bowls one at the stumps and Misbah edges it to the keeper. The captain goes for 52, with Pakistan 200 for 8. Asad Ali is the new batsman, joining Ajmal at the crease. Ali scoops it over the in-field for three runs, decent stroke. Ajmal wants a single and is not happy when Ali does not respond. Bravo gets one through Ajmal's defenses and Ajmal smiles as the ball spins slightly.
Misbah takes the single from the first ball. Ajmal picks up a single on the leg side to bring the captain on strike. Another fifty for Misbah, anchoring the Pakistani innings as he has done over the years. Ajmal tries to pull it, but only manages a single from a inside edge. Misbah goes for a quick single, and will get two because of a misfield from Bravo.
Bravo starts with a wide, Pakistan have scored only 15 runs from the last five overs, this is not the end to their innings they were looking for. Misbah gets a couple on the leg side, where are the big shots? Another slower ball from Bravo, not giving Misbah any pace to work with. Misbah plays it on the leg side for a single. A short ball to start against Ajmal, but gets a single to short fine leg. Ajmal cuts it over cover and scampers back for the second, Pakistan 192 for 7.
West Indies are back into this game as Riaz top edges this to Holder at fine leg, who takes an easy catch. Pakistan losing their way here, they need some quick runs to get to a good score. Ajmal walks out. Misbah takes a single to fine leg.
Pollard starts his 5th over, starting with four dots and then bowling a wide down the leg side. Just a single from that over, that too from a wide.
Roach continues, and Pakistan needs at least one batsman to hit and get some runs while Misbah holds up the other end. Three runs from the over, 7 overs to go, Pakistan will be looking for 230 or 250.
Good fielding from Darren Bravo on the boundary, but Pollard misses a run out as he does not collect it. Misbah knocks it into the leg side for a single. Four runs from the over.
Roach back into the attack. A couple of runs and the run rate has slowed down after Afridi has gone. Four from the over, Pakistan 173 for 6.
Wahab Riaz is the new man in, Bravo bowling the last over of the power play. Just two from the over, 10 overs to go and Pakistan are 169 for 6.
Misbah takes a single to cover, and Afridi is on strike. Afridi reaches for it outside the off stump and hits it over the field for a four, no sweeper on the off side. The ball gets wet, Pollard tries to dry it. Pollard gets the WICKET of Afridi, Sammy takes a good catch at square leg and Afridi goes after a good knock for Pakistan. After 39 overs, Pakistan are 167 for 6.
Bravo back into the attack to bowl the third over of the power play. Three singles and then a dot ball, then Misbah gets a couple on the leg side. Six from the over, Pakistan 160 for 5.
Pollard starts with a wide and then Misbah takes a single to bring Afridi on strike. Pollard goes through his run up, Afridi walks down the pitch but Pollard does not release the ball, a bit of aggression from both.
The power play has been taken, will Afridi look to accelerate or will he give his wicket away. Misbah tries the reverse sweep and misses it completely, getting it on the toe of the bat. Afridi gets the strike after Misbah takes a single. Six, Afridi hits it over the long on fielder for a six, his fifth of the day.
Pollard comes into the attack. Pollard appeals for lbw, but impact was far outside off stump, and Pollard was the only one appealing. A good over from Pollard to start, just two from it.
Momentum building here for Pakistan, in the form of Afridi and Misbah providing the anchor innings. Another wide from Samuels, this is unacceptable. The wrong length, a short ball and Afridi gets a six over midwicket, powerful stroke. Then Afridi gets a single.
Afridi plays a shot that can be described as a upper sweep over the keeper's head for four. Another boundary, this time more conventional from Afridi, over the covers for four. Sammy leaking runs and Afridi works him to deep point for three runs. Afridi gets his fifty, a very useful knock for Pakistan.
Marlon Samuels into the attack, to Afridi. Samuels is a similar bowler to Afridi, with his pace variations and quicker ones. It will be interesting to see how he faces Samuels. A wide down leg, lots of extras from West Indies today, 16 so far. Another wide and the batsmen run two. And another wide, this is unbelievable. Finally the end of the over, will Pakistan take the powerplay?
Msibah and Afridi gets singles, just the two from that over. Pakistan building a handy partnership thanks to Afridi and Misbah.
Narine continues, Afridi and Misbah taking singles. A wide down leg, Afridi makes the umpire know that he did not touch that. Four, Afridi gets this through point for four.
Bravo bowling to Afridi and he ducks under a bouncer. A good over from Bravo to Afridi, a maiden to finish the 29th over. Pakistan 98 for 5.
Narin to Afridi who gets a single from the first ball. Misbah gets a single too bringing Afridi on strike. Afridi dances down the ground and hits it flat and straight down the ground over the ropes for six. A strong cut shot from Afridi and just behind point for four. Afridi takes a single.
Bravo to Misbah, who blocks the first five balls. This must be frustrating for Afridi to watch, a maiden from Bravo.
Narine starts his first over, and starts with a wide that misses everyone, Misbah runs two but is not keen on the third. Another wide, Misbah misses this one. Misbah reverse sweeps confidently for a four. A single to Misbah as he plays it to fine leg, past the leg slip. Afridi versus Narine, no run. Then Afridi get a couple sweeping it to fine leg.
It was the slower ball from Bravo, Afridi mishits it but manages to get it over long on comfortably for another big six. Then he goes over point, for a four, risky batting but Pakistan need the runs. Edged and dropped, Bravo finds the edges and Gayle puts down a very, very difficult chance, Afridi survives and gets a single. Misbah gets a single from the last ball. Entertaining over comes to an end and it is drinks.
Into his last over, Holder, he has put West Indies in the driving seat. He has used the conditions very well and been consistent with his length, inducing the poor shots. Afridi gets it through the fielder at mid off and they get a couple. Almost gets his fifth wicket as Afridi almost edges it, but a great spell of swing from Holder.
A typical grind from Misbah and a typical start from Afridi. Two more singles from the over, West Indies keeping Afridi in check.
Misbah takes a single from the second ball of the over, Afridi is on strike. Afridi compliments Holder on a good delivery, nods a lot and signals that the ball went away from him. Afridi itching to go after the bowling but Holder keeping him in check. Just a couple of singles from the over.
Roach pitches this up and it gets Umar's leading edge and Bravo takes a good catch at mid on. WICKET! Another wicket for the West Indies as Roach finds better rhythm in his second spell and Shahid Afridi comes out to bat. This is not that kind of pitch Afridi will favour, but he only knows one way to bat so this can be entertaining. A typical start from Afridi, who begins with a six down the ground and Bravo has a consoling chat with Roach.
Umar attacks Bravo, goes across the stumps and chips it over the field to midwicket but the wet outfield makes the ball stop, they get two runs. Misbah edges it but manages to keep it along the ground, through the slips for a single. Five from the over, Pakistan are 47 for 4 after 20.
Kemar Roach is back, he was a bit wayward in his first spell and will be hoping to rectify that. Umar punches it through the off side for a couple, not hit well enough to reach the boundary. Two runs from the bat and one leg bye in the over.
Dwayne Bravo comes into the attack to replace Holder who has bowled 8 overs. A maiden to start from Bravo, Pakistan are 39 for 4 after 18 overs.
Sammy is worked away towards square leg by Misbah and he gets a single. Another single, this time from Umar. Sammy slightly straighter and Umar plays it fine, Holder does well at fine leg to save the boundary. Six runs from the over, with a busy Umar Akmal picking up two twos.
A flurry of runs for Pakistan, after 6 overs. Misbah smiles as he plays and misses. Holder continues to cause problems with some good length bowling, and his height provides the extra bounce. Another maiden from Holder, who reminds everyone of Walsh when he bowls.
West Indies have been bowling well and have been rewarded for their consistency. Misbah gets a single and then Akmal pushes the ball through the covers for a couple of runs. Six, Amkal hits a six and dispatches this over the ropes at square leg.
Holder to continue. A big shout for caught behind but the umpire gives it not out. A huge shout, but the umpire unmoved. Another maiden, that's four in a row.
Another maiden from Sammy, West Indies picking up early wickets and then stopping the runs. Misbah is spending some time at the crease and will look to build an innings.

WICKET! Holder pitches it on middle and making it swing away from Shafiq who edges it and the keeper takes a brilliant catch.

Rain interrupts play and Pakistan will welcome this break. West Indies in control of the game.
Sammy continues to Misbah, who blocks a few and then angles his bat to get it down to fine leg for two runs. Sammy bowled well in the tri-nation series recently. Another good over from him.
Holder continues, no sign of the rain now. Misbah runs it down to third man and gets a single. He is the right man to come in for Pakistan now, he will also be a calming influence on the non-striker. WICKET! There is no DRS in this match, and the umpire took a lot of time before giving him out. Jamshed is unlucky as the replays show that the ball hit him outside the line of the stumps. Asad Shafiq comes out to bat with Pakistan 3 down.
Sammy comes in to replace the inaccurate Roach. The rain has disappeared and it is getting brighter. Just two from Sammy first over, very disciplined start from him.
Holder is nudged to point off the first ball for a single by Jamshed as it starts drizzling. WICKET! Holder bowls a great inswinger and Hafeez loses his off stump, Hafeez who was asking the umpire about the rain has to go back into the hut. Misbah is not happy about the rain either, as he walks out to the middle and has a chat with Jamshed.
Roach continues. A good over from him, just one wide so Pakistan move on to 17.
Short and wide and Shehzad gets a boundary. WICKET! It was outside the off stump, Shehzad was leaving it alone but it took his inside edge and went straight back on to the stumps. Holder gets his first wicket today, Hafeez walks out to the crease. After 4 overs, Pakistan are 16 for 1.
Width for Jamshed and he puts it away with ease, good shot to start the over. Just the boundary from the over.

The toss has been delayed, because of rain. The covers were taken off but are now coming back on.
