The first-ballerAzhar Alis leadership has been under the scanner since Pakistans 4-1 ODI series loss in England. He was reportedly asked to step down from captaincy to focus on his batting. However an unlikely lifeline, even if he didnt expect it, came his way as those in the corridors of power couldnt take a decision in the absence of PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan, who was away on leave to recuperate from a heart surgery.The pressure, it seems, may have only mounted on Azhar after he nicked behind off the first ball, a 145kph Shannon Gabriel thunderbolt that snaked away off the seam after pitching on a fourth-stump line. Azhar, having been opened up, simply wafted at that good-length delivery, and watched it settle into the gloves of Denesh Ramdin before slowly trudging off.The VThe leg side for Sharjeel Khan is perhaps the cricketing equivalent of Sheldon Coopers spot. He peppers that region with short-arm jabs, whips and muscular pulls. It seemed like West Indies were in with a plan to prevent Sharjeel from skipping into his spot. The seamers hardly offered anything on middle-and-leg stumps, and instead tested Sharjeel outside off. He was initially perturbed by the early seam movement, but burst out of his comfort zone with a brace of scything drives over mid-off in the fifth over, bowled by Gabriel. Sharjeel then shovelled Carlos Brathwaite over wide long-on for six, his first leg-side boundary, at the end of the ninth over. Four balls later, Jason Holder was subjected to the same treatment.The stunning catchWhen Azam whipped Carlos Brathwaite over the top, the ball seemed destined to fly over the wide long-on boundary.... until Kieron Pollard used every inch of his 1.96 metre frame and plucked the ball out of thin air. Pollard took flight, and grabbed the ball with an outstretched right hand. But he was wary of the momentum taking him over the ad skirting, and thus tossed the ball back into the field of play. Pollard then reclaimed his balance and the catch. He deserved to take a bow for the sequence, which was just what he did, although in an angry manner.The reviewSulieman Benn beat Babar Azams inside edge and struck the pad with an arm-ball. Umpire Ahsan Raza shot down the lbw appeal
