Pakistani bowlers wonderful performance


Pakistan took an early grip on the first quarter-final in Dhaka after Mohammad Hafeez proved the surprise package with the new ball to take two wickets as West Indies limped to 60 for 4 in 25 overs. Umar Gul struck the major blow to remove Chris Gayle, and then Hafeez's arm balls made inroads, leaving Ramnaresh Sarwan and the recalled Shivnarine Chanderpaul to grind out a 42-run stand, only for Sarwan to carve to cover against Shahid Afridi.
Some early aggression from West Indies was a false dawn. Devon Smith cut the first ball of the match to the point boundary and Gayle played two thumping shots, but in attempting his third boundary, he picked out Afridi at mid-off who did well to hold on to a stinging drive. With their talisman gone, West Indies became virtually scoreless.
