MATCH TURNING POINTS: PAKISTAN vs WEST INDIES - ODI 3, at Abu Dhabi - Nov 12, 2008
1 Khurram Manzoor was dropped even before he got off the mark and this cost West Indies as he went on to add 85 with Younis Khan. In the fifth over he played an uppish square drive off Daren Powell which went straight to point where Nikita Miller messed it up. Manzoor went on to score 30, given one more life while at six.
 
2 Manzoor's wicket was hardly a breakthrough for the run-rate jumped up once Misbah-ul-Haq joined Younis in the middle. The two added 103 at more than five an over and guided Pakistan towards a competitive total. They scored at almost an even pace - Misbah getting 45 and Younis 51 in the stand.
 
3 Though Younis and Misbah built the platform for Pakistan, the total may have got stuck around the 250-mark if hadn't been for Kamran Akmal's late hitting. He hit two sixes and a four in his 11-ball 22 that took his side to 273.
 
4 West Indies were on course at 167 for 1 when Shoaib Malik threw the ball back to Iftikhar Anjum, who had gone for 25 runs in his first three overs. This time Anjum derailed West Indies' chase by taking three wickets in two overs. Sarwan misread the line to be bowled for 62; Shivnarine Chanderpaul popped a catch to midwicket; and Xavier Marshall inside-edged on to his stumps.
 
5 Though West Indies had lost six wickets and needed more than six an over to win, Gayle was still around. He had just hit Anjum for two sixes in an over that cost 19 runs when Umar Gul came to bowl the 44th over. His fourth ball was yorker length and while trying to dig it out, Gayle edged it to the keeper. There was some doubt over whether it was an edge and umpire Daryl Harper conferred with the third umpire before giving him out. That ended West Indies' hopes of preventing a series whitewash.
