View dismissal LMP Simmons c †Patel b Vinay Kumar 1 12 8 0 0 12.50
2.4 80.1 mph, the end of Simmons? the umpires are conferring about a caught-behind chance, they want the third umpire to confirm the edge carried to the keeper, it was a short of length ball that is a slightly wider than the previous two deliveries, Simmons fishes at it outside off, definite edge, many replays needed here, on the first replay I thought it landed on Parthiv's fingers, the third umpire wants about a dozen replays to be sure, and he finally decides that carried, a rare ODI failure for Simmons this year 2/1
View dismissal DP Hyatt c †Patel b Mithun 20 56 39 1 1 51.28
13.1 82.2 mph, looked like a gutterball but has turned into a strike, Mithun slides it down the leg side, Hyatt shuffles across and looks to send that to fine leg, gets a thin edge, Parthiv gets a second catch, Hyatt should be furious with himself for getting out in this fashion, especially with the thin West Indian batting, a first ODI wicket for Mithun 42/2
View dismissal MN Samuels b Ashwin 58 112 93 5 1 62.36
33.4 46.0 mph, Samuels is gone, making room early on to go for the expansive drive, Ashwin skids it through and the off stump is pegged back, once again the Batting Powerplay proves dangerous to the batting team 122/3
DM Bravo retired hurt 26 48 41 2 0 63.41
25.6 Ashwin to Samuels, gently done by Samuels, leaning forward and guiding the ball in front of point for a single 97/2
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Patel b Yadav 38 59 52 3 0 73.07
43.5 75.5 mph, third catch for Parthiv, Ramdin is gone, Umesh rolls the fingers to take off the pace, again it is a little wide outside off, Ramdin looks to slash it through the off, nicks it to Parthiv 177/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c Jadeja b Vinay Kumar 29 44 32 2 1 90.62
44.2 80.3 mph, Jadeja has pulled off a blinder here!, the end of Pollard, it was a poor delivery from Vinay, a length hit-me delivery, Pollard hits it, but not flat enough to clear the ropes, it goes miles high, and then drops towards the deep extra cover boundary, Ravindra Jadeja runs towards it from long-off, had plenty of ground to make but manages to cover it and latches on to it, tumbling over as he completes the catch, outstanding effort that 181/5

View dismissal PA Patel b Samuels 39 60 35 7 0 111.42
14.6 hello, hello, where did that come from? wasn't Narine the mystery spinner, Parthiv might not agree right now, Samuels gets one to spin away sharply, Parthiv closes the face looking to play the ball to the leg side, the ball turns past the leading edge and takes the top of off, and once again Parthiv looks good for a short while but doesn't convert it into a substantial score, done enough to get two more games? 79/4
View dismissal V Sehwag* c †Ramdin b Rampaul 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
1.1 85.1 mph, Rampaul gets the dream start, Virender Sehwag gone for a first-baller, it was short of a length and outside off, Sehwag looks to punch that one through the off side, a top-edge result, easy for Ramdin, Rampaul is cock-a-hoop, Sehwag's indifferent ODI form continues 8/1
View dismissal G Gambhir lbw b Rampaul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
1.2 87.1 mph, oh boy, this is amazing, Gambhir gets a golden duck now, fails to offer shot to a delivery that was delivery for off stump, massive lbw appeal and that umpire is convinced, Gambhir was looking to shoulder arms, that one jags in a touch, Rampaul's on a hat-trick now 8/2
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Narine 20 21 30 3 0 66.66
8.2 57.5 mph, Narine has his first international wicket, and it's the big onbe of Kohli, it was a length ball, an offspinner, Kohli looks to play it to the leg side, looked to have been struck on middle stump, umpire was convinced that would have taken leg, Kohli isn't, he doesn't like the decision one bit, but that doesn't matter, he's on his way, that was a tight call 43/3
View dismissal RG Sharma run out (Sammy) 95 151 100 10 1 95.00
43.4 from Roach, all is forgiven Sammy, what a bit of fielding this is, ends Rohit's resistance, and the game is surely sewn up now, it wasn't the best of deliveries, a full toss on middle stump, Rohit can only get it as far as wide mid-on, hits it firmly as well, reaches Sammy quickly, the West Indies captain may have dropped a couple of catches today but at this critical juncture, he doesn't fluff it, takes aim and scores a direct hit, Rohit is well short, and he falls short of a hundred as well, it's been a fantastic effort from him though 216/9
View dismissal SK Raina c †Ramdin b Rampaul 2 5 3 0 0 66.66
15.6 85.7 mph, and another one for Rampaul, Raina can't believe the decision, makes it clear he's not happy with the call, shaking his head as he walks off, it was a legstump delivery, Raina move across and jumps as he tries to guide it to fine leg, think it took his thigh pad, Ramdin does well to pouch the chance, diving to his right and plucking it low, he appeals, umpire Tony Hill upholds it, surely West Indies can't lose this now 84/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja run out (Russell/†Ramdin) 11 25 16 2 0 68.75
20.5 Narine to Sharma, is this a run-out now? Russell is sure it is, Jadeja is walking off, Rohit chops the ball off the back foot towards point, Russell shows off his athleticism once more, onto the ball in a jiffy and releases it quickly, reaches Ramdin on the bounce close to the stumps, he takes off the bails, Jadeja is well short, he had no hope especially after he hesitated early on,six down now, and that elusive first win on tour comes closer for West Indies 105/6
View dismissal R Ashwin lbw b Narine 31 74 64 1 0 48.43
39.6 57.7 mph, he doesn't read this one, Narine gets rid of Ashwin, pitching on a length just outside off, Ashwin's bat was slow in coming down to meet the offspinner, hit in front of off, no doubts about this decision 196/7
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar b Roach 3 7 8 0 0 37.50
41.3 89.8 mph, bowled him! Roach hasn't had the greatest of days, but that was the perfect ball to the tailender, a yorker that is too quick and too good for Vinay, the off stump is out of the ground even as Vinay bat comes down 200/8
View dismissal A Mithun lbw b Rampaul 23 25 16 2 2 143.75
46.5 87.6 mph, West Indies have the win, a massive grin on Gibson's face, it was getting tense but India's record home run in ODIs is over, Rampaul was the man who caused the damage early on, and he's back to finish it off, a yorker strikes the pad in front of the stumps, Rampaul belts out an appeal, and sets off on a celebratory run, though the umpire hasn't raised his finger, it takes Asnani an eternity to rule that out, and West Indies stay alive in this series 244/10
