I realise there can be optical illusions with this sort of thing, but that looked as though it definitely bounced.
before the fieldsman caught it.

That was my impression too. Aided by the fact that Hetmeyer got only one hand on the ball initially.

Smashing start to the second session. 24/2 already after 10 overs.

Misbah dismissed one last time after top edging a slog sweep. Walks away to a guard of honour by the Pakistani team.

Never the most exciting team under him, but for leading them from Lords 2010 to number 1 for a brief period, he deserves a whole lot of credit.

And that's Younis dismissed. Warm reception again, and another guard of honour and all that. Pakistan's batting now looks truly f*cked without those two.

So where does he stand among Pakistan's best? Would have him over Aloo, especially with his fourth innings record. Bit behind Miandad imo. But Miandad was, and still is, a monumental twat. So he goes well ahead of him too.

Powell falls in the last over, and it now appears Misbah and Younis will leave Test cricket on a winning note.

I like watching Shimron Hetmyer bat.

His dismissals are great theatre.

Can't blame his consistency. The same dismissal thrice in the series.

Guess the only thing that can be said of Singh is at least he's not Chandrika.

Without infra red cameras or snicko, can't see how the 3rd umpire will have enough evidence to overturn the on field call.

My opinion is that Dowrich is not out and Oxenford has got this wrong. Umpire's call stands. At least that brings together West Indies' best partnership.

Well done to the Wackies on their first series win in the West Indies.

The Ganjas got Yasired despite Chase's excellent ton, and match in general.

But what was Gabriel thinking? Trying to slog the last ball he would have needed to face. All he had to do was keep it out & then Chase could have played out the final over for a draw.

Seriously stupid by Gabriel. Shame for Chase. He's had a remarkable series.
