View dismissal LMP Simmons c Harbhajan Singh b Kumar 6 25 23 1 0 26.08
6.1 79.1 mph, horror shot from Simmons, he has combusted with an ugly-looking top-edge that's ended in mid-off's hands. He had decided early that he was advancing down the track, and Praveen had enough time to see him and drop it short. Simmons then threw his hands at an attempted pull, though he was in no position for it. It took the top-edge and looped into Harbhajan's hands. 23/1
View dismissal KA Edwards c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 21 78 45 1 0 46.66
18.2 and Edwards' woes against spin have come to an end. He's scarcely read a ball today from the tweakers. Harbhajan lands the floater short of a length, Edwards leans back and looks to play for the offbreak, and ends up top-edging a pulled whip that lobs up and lands in Kohli's hand at slip. Poor, poor shot. 59/3
View dismissal DM Bravo c Sharma b MM Patel 4 6 8 1 0 50.00
7.5 80.9 mph, and gone. Munaf has nailed Darren Bravo with another nagging ball, short of driving length outside off. Poor shot from Darren Bravo, again he doesn't move forward or back and just throws the bat hard at it. The ball bounds off the outside edge, to Rohit at the lone widish slip and he takes it really well as it flies towards his head. He takes it with the fingers pointing up, even as he falls back. 28/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan c †PA Patel b MM Patel 56 114 94 5 0 59.57
37.6 82.6 mph, what a poor ball to lose a wicket to. Munaf has been concentrating on the channel of complete certainty outside leg stump so far this over. This time Sarwan tries to glance what would have been a wide, and ends up nidking it fine. Parthiv does really well to dive away to his left and pouch it. Sars c Patel b Patel. 141/4
View dismissal MN Samuels b Raina 55 90 75 3 2 73.33
42.4 Raina does what he specialises in, producing a huge wicket out of no where. Another wicket goes to an ordinary ball. It was a flat, short, gentle offbreak on middle. Samuels looked to move across and pull it away, but it somehow slipped through off the inside edge, onto his left thing, in between his legs, and clattered the furniture. 177/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo st †PA Patel b Harbhajan Singh 22 26 20 0 1 110.00
44.5 and Harbhajan's got his former Mumbai Indians team-mate. Lovely tossed up delivery on middle stump, and it held it's line. Bravo tried to work it to the leg side, but he wasn't to the pitch of it, and it snapped away past the outside edge even as he over-balanced. Parthiv's day has kept improving, and he collects this nicely and whips the bails off. 191/6
View dismissal CS Baugh lbw b Harbhajan Singh 16 21 17 1 0 94.11
46.6 Harbhajan's got an lbw with the last ball of his spell. He's been appealing for them all day! This was a super-fast delivery fired in flat and straight from round the wicket. Did that land inside the mat? No. Poor decision from umpire Nero. Baugh was hustled into the sweep and missed, but once it pitches outside leg, it can't be out. 198/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy* lbw b Kumar 4 17 5 0 0 80.00
47.5 75.0 mph, Praveen's taken Sammy out. You don't get lbws plumber than those. Praveen delivered a low full toss that was headed for the base of middle stump. Sammy got across and tried to work it over to the leg side, and ended up looking like a deer caught in the headlights. Caught palpably in front, and he's walking back now. 204/8
R Rampaul not out 9 13 8 1 0 112.50
View dismissal D Bishoo lbw b Raina 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
48.6 and gone. Fired in full and on the stumps, Bishoo goes for a reverse-sweep and misses. Another easy lbw call. Or is it? The ball was not entirely inside the mat, but it was still a fair call from the umpire. Hitting off stump. 206/9

View dismissal PA Patel run out (DJ Bravo/†Baugh) 13 21 15 2 0 86.66
5.2 Martin to Dhawan, run-out, excellent fielding from Dwayne Bravo at mid-on, was pushed wide of him and Parthiv responded to Dhawan's call, Bravo was running to his wrong side, he collected and returned a powerful throw to Baugh at the striker's end, the keeper knocked off the bails to find Parthiv well short 29/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c Simmons b Martin 51 105 76 3 1 67.10
25.4 now Dhawan's lost it, he'd worked hard to get to his half-century and he's thrown it away with that slog-sweep, was tossed up outside off and he sent it straight into the palms of deep midwicket, this is a tight one 104/4
View dismissal V Kohli c †Baugh b Rampaul 2 5 8 0 0 25.00
6.5 87.2 mph, chasing a wide one and Kohli will be livid with that, short and he went for the cut, got a thin edge and Baugh made no mistake, a loose shot and he's paid the price 34/2
View dismissal S Badrinath c †Baugh b Bishoo 17 32 30 1 0 56.66
15.3 57.1 mph, Bishoo breaks through this time, pushed that one quick, landed short on the off and skidded past Badri, he tried to chop that to point, got a faint under-edge and Baugh took it well, India in a bit of trouble now 61/3
RG Sharma not out 68 131 75 3 1 90.66
View dismissal SK Raina* c Simmons b Martin 43 65 50 4 0 86.00
40.1 50.7 mph, Raina has holed out with the job incomplete, was in the slot, tossed up on the off stump but he slog-swept it straight to long-on when in fact he would have wanted to clear deep midwicket, straight to Simmons, a small for the Windies, you think? 184/5
View dismissal YK Pathan c & b Rampaul 10 19 12 0 1 83.33
43.6 84.2 mph, excellent catch from Rampaul, does what Martin failed to do and this was a far more difficult chance, pitched on a length and Yusuf drives it back hard but Rampaul stays alert and pouches it well on his follow through, good stuff 210/6
