Nasir Jamshed was the first to start the fielding howlers during West Indies innings and in Pakistan’s batting he was the first to open the flood-gates. He was removed by Taylor in the second delivery of the innings. Trying to play the pull-shot but only being able to top-edge, Jamshed was caught by Andre Russell at the mid-wicket.

3. Haris Sohail c (sub)J Carter b Jerome Taylor 0(6b)

4. Ahmed Shehzad c Simmons b J Holder 1(10b)
Captain Jason Holder joins the party to get rid of Ahmed Shehzad who had scored the only run on scoreboard for Pakistan at that point of time. Apart from good piece of bowling, Holder also proved to be a thinking captain as he brings in the gully and forces Shehzad into playing the shot at gully only to be caught by Lendl Simmons. Pakistan have lost 4 wickets for 1 run by now.
5. Misbah-ul-Haq c Gayle b A Russell 7(21b)
It was heart as well as hope crushing moment for Pakistan as they saw their captain hit the turf in disgust. After putting a temporary brake on the continuous fall of wickets, Misbah went down to a poor delivery from Andre Russell. He walked back to the pavilion like a lost warrior.
Earlier, an all-round batting performance from the West Indies helped them to 310 for six in their World Cup Pool B match against a sloppy Pakistan here Saturday. Pakistan were left to rue several dropped catches after winning the toss and deciding to bowl first as the West Indies recovered from the loss of early wickets to post a strong total at Hagley Oval.
