26.3 to Chanderpaul, gone, Kumble you beauty! Flighted on middle and off, Chanderpaul goes for an airy flick of all shots, not much turn, strikes him on the full, they all appeal, there's lbw shouts, the ball flies to Dravid at slip, there's one for the catch, then he throws the ball onto the stumps to run him out, its all happening, Rudi Koertzen raises the finger slowly, in the end its given lbw, its really all happening here, three appeals for one ball to one batsman, but the lbw is confirmed, whatever it is, Kumble's struck and West Indies slip further! 56/4
43.6 to Bravo, Kumble strikes! the wicket of Bravo, got him! it was a straight delivery, Bravo goes for the big swipe, misses it completely, knocks the off stump. 128/6
51.5 to Samuels, and he's got him with a faster one, that was pitched in a good spot, around leg, he goes back to fend it, ball goes off the pads to short leg, they all appeal for both lbw and a catch, and umpire Jerling raises his finger in a hurry! Its actually been adjugded lbw, a debatable decision that, looked like it was missing legs, but another wicket for the veteran spinner 144/7
59.5 to Taylor, but isnt revenge so, so sweet? This is a master bowler we're talking about, he gave him a slower one to cut, and this time he sends in a quicker one, here deal with that, says Kumble, forces Taylor on the backfoot, caught plumb in front of the stumps, all go up in appeal, they know theyve got their man, and yes, says umpire Jerling. Taylor's enterprising innings come to an end, India on the verge of victory at Sabina Park... 180/8
69.2 to Collins, got em, nine down! Kumble strikes, tossed up, a straight one, pitched in line, goes for a sweep of some sorts, struck in front, a big appeal and the man in the hat and shades say yep, thats out, India can breathe a big sigh of relief, fifth wicket for Kumble, who says he cant win matches for India outside the subcontinent?? 219/9
69.4 to Collymore, all over! All done! Finito! Kumble, Kumble! How this game has changed! A quicker one on off, width offered, he goes for cut and the thin edge is snapped up by an ecstatic Dhoni! No one waits for the decision they all know its out! West Indies bowled out for 219, India win by 49 runs, what a win! 35 years it took, but boy, isnt it worth it? 219/10
