  India innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal G Gambhir* lbw b Martin 31 73 41 2 0 75.60
18.6 58.2 mph, that looked out, bowled it flat and it was quicker through the air and went straight on, landed on middle, kept a touch low as well, Gambhir got across and tried to work it square but missed, trapped right in front, no doubt about that at all 84/3
View dismissal AM Rahane lbw b Roach 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.2 86.6 mph, Rahane gets a golden duck on return to international cricket. This time it's the lack of bounce. Short of a length, starts outside off, sneaks under his defence, and hits him midway between shin and knee. Dead plumb, as this is moving in from outside off and hitting middle 1/1
View dismissal PA Patel b Roach 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.3 88.8 mph, Slowness and lowness. Chennai is up to it again. Roach on a hat-trick. Patel is looking to dab it for the single that gets him off the mark. It's short of a length, angling away. Patel is early into the shot, and the ball stays low for good measure. The inside edge is taken, and the stumps are disturbed 1/2
MK Tiwary retired hurt 104 144 126 10 1 82.53
37.5 from Narine, takes a single, pushing it wide of point, and walks off - he is retired-hurt here. No obvious communication with the opposition captain or the umpire. I am sure he would have got that message during the drinks break, to not carry on if he thinks the cramps are troubling him too much 201/3
View dismissal V Kohli c Samuels b Martin 80 99 85 5 0 94.11
45.1 51.5 mph, Kohli is gone. Looking to hit a six over long-on, but Martin sort of cramps him up with the leg line. He can't free the arms, and is too close to the ball, hence no elevation. easy catch for long-on 241/4
View dismissal RG Sharma b Narine 21 31 26 1 0 80.76
46.6 he has not been reading the legbreaks from the hand, and has been beaten now. Short of a length, within the stumps, and takes the off stump. Sharma is playing for the ofbreak 250/5
SK Raina not out 16 16 12 2 0 133.33
View dismissal IK Pathan run out (Martin) 4 9 10 0 0 40.00
49.6 Samuels to Raina, driven down to long-off. They risk the second. Martin's throw catches Pathan miles short 267/6

View dismissal LMP Simmons lbw b Pathan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 79.3 mph, Irfan Pathan is back. Forget that maiden that he played. He takes a wicket first ball. An old trademark wicket too. Swinging in. On a length. Headed for leg stump. Beats the inside edge. Simmons is caught on the crease. What a start 0/1
View dismissal KOA Powell b Pathan 15 20 16 3 0 93.75
4.1 81.2 mph, Irfan is screaming in delight. He is loving being back. Seam movement and inside edge for him. Just short of a length, outside off, seams in a touch, Powell pushes away from the body, and plays it on 23/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c †Patel b Mithun 6 24 11 1 0 54.54
5.1 80.3 mph, Mithun doesn't even realise he has got a wicket. What a top delivery. Not sure if it takes the edge, but Mithun doesn't even appeal. Short of a length, outside off, kicks off and moves away a touch. Samuels is beaten all ends up, but the ball swings posthumously, which makes it look like a deflection. Mithun is disappointed he hasn't got the edge. Patel goes up in half appeal. Mithun gets the most pleasant shock of his life when he sees all fielders rushing towards him. Umpire Asnani's finger is up. You needed a crane to lift Samuels out of the ground 29/3
View dismissal JN Mohammed lbw b Mithun 2 23 21 0 0 9.52
9.4 79.3 mph, he succeeds in getting leg-before. Across the line again. Not learning from his earlier mistakes. Mithun bowls straight enough this time, and hits him in front of middle and leg. A better decision from Asnani this time 36/4
View dismissal D Ramdin lbw b Jadeja 14 43 20 1 0 70.00
15.5 54.9 mph, Umpire Asnani strikes again. This is fired into the pads, misses Ramdin's bat, hits him in front of leg, and is angling further down. There is a considerable distance for it to go as Ramdin is on the front foot, but he has been given out lbw. Not sure West Indies players will share a drink with Asnani in the after-tour party 78/5
View dismissal KA Pollard c Rahane b Raina 119 140 110 4 10 108.18
44.1 61.0 mph, Raina strikes first ball. He has some sense of occasion. Pollard is down on his haunches for about five minutes. This is full outside off, he has drilled it down to long-off. Rahane takes a superb catch at the edge of the boundary. A small leap is required, but he makes sure he stays inside the rope. Irfan Pathan comes and shakes Pollard's hand, but Pollard is distraught. Slowly the Indians come to console - well not sure if that is the right emotion - Pollard, whose face is blank 233/10
View dismissal AD Russell run out (Gambhir) 53 47 42 5 3 126.19
28.6 Jadeja to Pollard, Gambhir is usually guilty of getting himself run out carelessly but he has pulled one off in the field here. These two have been stealing singles with their giant strides, but this time Pollard has hit this slightly too well to short third, and Gambhir swoops in on it, and throws the middle stump down. Rusell keeps running towards the pavilion 167/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Rahane b Jadeja 3 11 14 0 0 21.42
32.3 54.4 mph, Sammy is gone. He never looked comfortable. Drives at him outside off. This is bowled slower through the air. Sammy isn't to the pitch of it, the turn away takes the outside half of the bat. Sliced to point for a simple enough catch 181/7
View dismissal SP Narine b R Sharma 8 21 15 1 0 53.33
36.5 60.5 mph, bowled him. The non-turner gets him. Natural variation. Bowled like a legbreak, but it pitches middle and off, and keeps going. Narine plays a defensive shot for the turn. Beaten comprehensively. Off stump pegged back 195/8
View dismissal KAJ Roach b Jadeja 0 21 15 0 0 0.00
41.6 56.1 mph, timber. Jadeja is redeeming himself here. Wickets of Sammy and Roach here. Slower through the air, flighted, dips towards middle and off, turns away slightly, beats the edge. Off stump is taken 213/9
