Pakistan vs West Indies 3rd ODI Video Highlights - PAK vs WI 2013
West Indies pulled off a stunning tie against Pakistan in their one-day international at St Lucia as number 11 Jason Holder smashed 14 off the final over of the day.
The tourists looked on course for a victory which could have put them 2-1 up in the five-match series when their opponents went into the last over on 215 for nine, in reply to Pakistan's 229 for six.
But, off the bowling of Wahab Riaz, Holder got two singles, a four, a six and, off the last ball, a two to complete an incredible recovery.
Lendl Simmons had made 75 to give the Windies hope, but he was one of three victims for off-spinner Saeed Ajmal, who finished with figures of three for 36.
The hosts started their reply slowly, losing openers Chris Gayle for eight and Johnson Charles for six. But a fourth-wicket partnership of 91 between Marlon Samuels (46) and Simmons, whose knock came off 120 balls and included seven fours and two sixes, brought them back into contention.
Mohammad Irfan removed Samuels to leave the hosts on 141 for four and Ajmal claimed his first wicket when he had Simmons caught at deep mid wicket by Ahmed Shehzad. Ajmal continued to have success, but 21-year-old Holder took a liking to Wahab at the death to secure a tie for the Windies.
Earlier, Misbah-ul-Haq's 75 was the mainstay of the Pakistan innings, helping them to what had looked a defendable total, with Holder the pick of the bowlers with two for 40 from his 10 overs. Misbah anchored a disjointed innings with a patient 75, although Pakistan were equally indebted to Akmal after he and tailender Wahab added a much-needed and breezy 52 from the final 26 balls.
New-ball quick Holder combined with Kemar Roach to ensure Pakistan began at a crawl after skipper Dwayne Bravo had opted for first use of the ball. Holder had Shehzad caught in the deep off a top-edge by Roach and when Nasir Jamshed fell to Darren Sammy in similar circumstances in the next over, the 13th, Pakistan were 39 for two.
That brought Misbah to the crease and while he and Mohammad Hafeez set about recovering the early damage they did so without any thought of inhibition. Hafeez took 33 balls to reach 14 before tamely pulling Bravo to square leg as the tourists edged past 100 in the 31st over.
Misbah remained steadfast to reach his half-century from 91 balls but when he fell in the 45th over, bowled by Bravo, Pakistan were still only 174 for five.
Any hope Shahid Afridi might supply some of his characteristic late fireworks ended abruptly, the all-rounder managed just one before Holder located the top-edge again, but Akmal ably filled his shoes with an unbeaten 40 from 31 balls. Wahab also contributed 19, from 10 balls, hitting Bravo for back-to-back sixes in a penultimate over that cost 16.
