Windies down... and out, too?

One guy makes 130 off 120; another makes 92/193 -- and yet the Windies go from 4/214, when Lara is out, to 345 all out, on what remains a lovely pitch to bat on.
Now to see what a Pak side missing two of its three best batsmen -- Inzy, and Yousuf Youhana -- can do; much of the hard yards will have to be done by stand in skipper Younis Khan, who has the game, and the temperament, to anchor the innings and push his mates towards a big score.
I was calling the shots, I'd be tempted to try and blindside the Windies -- send Afridi out to open and tell him to do me a Sehwag. Tone it down a bit from his usual ODI mode, but attack, put the bowlers under pressure from the get go...
