  India innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RG Sharma c †Ramdin b Best 46 124 78 5 0 58.97
29.1 88.1 mph, another fast bowler comes back and takes a wicket first ball of the new spell. Seems to have been done in by the line and the pace. Backs away to try to back-cut a length ball that is not too wide, and Best takes the edge gleefully 141/2
View dismissal S Dhawan c DM Bravo b Roach 69 102 77 8 2 89.61
23.1 84.8 mph, and Dhawan falls to his own confidence. He has shifted gears of late, and this time got a length ball on the pads, and naturally went to hit it. However, he hasn't budgeted for the deep square leg, and has holed out 123/1
View dismissal V Kohli* c Sammy b DJ Bravo 102 120 83 13 2 122.89
49.6 81.0 mph, Kohli falls, but to the final ball of the innings. He gets a length ball, tries to clear deep midwicket, but can't. Just doesn't get the elevation on this. Kohli has done the job, though 311/7
View dismissal SK Raina c Sammy b Samuels 10 18 14 0 1 71.42
32.4 56.4 mph, Gone! Good catch from at slip. Raina opens the face of the bat and the ball runs off the face and straight into Sammy's hands 156/3
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Ramdin b Best 6 11 7 1 0 85.71
35.1 91.3 mph, and a wicket with the first ball of the Powerplay. Dug in short, down the leg side, Ramdin collects after Karthik tries to pull. Ramdin hardly appeals, but Best does heartily, and it is given. Karthik is not happy, and it doesn't seem to have hit the glove. There is a clear case for show of dissent. Even Kohli looks very angry 168/4
View dismissal M Vijay c Charles b Pollard 27 21 18 5 0 150.00
39.5 68.5 mph, and Pollard lets a roar out after getting Vijay out. Vjay backs away again, gets a short ball, wants to cut it over the square field on the off side. The ball, though, stops on him, and he ends up cutting it straight to point. Pollard punches the air 210/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja run out (sub [DS Smith]/DJ Bravo) 2 11 5 0 0 40.00
41.4 DJ Bravo to Kohli, slower ball, driven straight to cover, Jadeja wants one, Kohli doesn't. Jadeja is sent back, substitute Devon Smith lobs the ball back to Bravo, and Jadeja is caught short 221/6

View dismissal CH Gayle c †Karthik b Kumar 10 11 13 2 0 76.92
2.2 82.3 mph, And Bhuvneshwar provides a breakthrough in his first spell again. There is a drizzle in the air, but it doesn't affect BK's seam. The ball lands on the seam, short of a length, just outside off, and it breaks away and kicks a little. Gayle cannot control it, and edges it through. Outside the playing field, Dhoni applauds too 14/1
View dismissal J Charles c Raina b I Sharma 45 66 39 6 2 115.38
13.3 86.1 mph, another short ball gets India a wicket. This is surreal. Indian fans won't mind this at all, though. Short again, rising towards the chest again, handcuffs him on the pull, and square leg runs to his right to judge the catch well 69/5
View dismissal DM Bravo c Ashwin b Kumar 1 11 7 0 0 14.28
4.6 81.5 mph, look at where Bravo is looking, and look where the ball is. He plonks the front foot down and wants to drive this wide of mid-off, but is nowhere near this length ball, and edges it to Ashwin for a comfortable catch at first slip. All through, Bravo is looking towards extra cover 25/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c †Karthik b I Sharma 6 34 20 1 0 30.00
11.6 85.0 mph, and it doesn't matter what happened last ball. Sharma has his man. Short of a length again, seams a touch again, and this time Samuels has clearly edged it. Sharma is pumped 64/3
View dismissal KA Pollard c Ashwin b Kumar 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
12.4 82.5 mph, one more bites the dust. Golden duck for Pollard. Pace and bounce here. Short of a lenght, rising towards the chest, Pollard arches back and jabs at it. Ashwin takes another catch at slip. Have India found a slip catcher? And more importantly, a place for Ashwin? 65/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo* lbw b Yadav 14 43 29 0 1 48.27
22.3 86.9 mph, stays low, skids through, jags back in from outside off, beats the inside edge, and is given out lbw. I think it is headed down leg, but I am waiting for a replay. And I am wrong. bravo had moved too far across, and was dead plumb 108/7
View dismissal D Ramdin c Kumar b Yadav 9 27 17 1 0 52.94
20.1 81.2 mph, and Yadav strikes first ball. A straight full ball, angling in, Ramdin is slightly early into this on-side shot, and the leading edge carries to the left of mid-off, who has enough time to come under it 91/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy lbw b Yadav 12 17 13 1 1 92.30
24.3 70.1 mph, slower offcutter, and Yadav has three wickets in three overs. Sammy is not too pleased. He thinks this is cutting too much, but umpire Llong says it is hitting the stumps. And he is right again. Sammy completely done in by the change of pace, and the movement off the track 113/8
View dismissal KAJ Roach b Jadeja 34 49 33 3 2 103.03
33.6 58.4 mph, Jadeja finishes it off. India claim the bonus point. This is full and straight, Roach plays across the line, is hit on the pad, and then on the stumps 171/10
View dismissal SP Narine c I Sharma b Jadeja 21 36 33 0 2 63.63
33.5 finally India get a wicket. Finally Narine falls. He makes room, tries to go over cover, but he doesn't have that much space to swing, and finds long-off 171/9
