India tour of West Indies, Only T20I: West Indies v India at Port of Spain, Jun 4, 2011

View dismissal PA Patel c Samuels b Sammy 26 36 20 2 1 130.00
6.6 64.0 mph, Sammy on a hat-trick! India have a long line-up, and seem keen to give everyone a chance today. Parthiv falls to the lack of pace this time, the offcutter gripped and came through late as he tried to square drive, and he ended up scooping it to point who had to jump up and pouch it. 48/3
View dismissal S Dhawan c †Fletcher b Sammy 5 13 11 0 0 45.45
2.6 78.3 mph, West Indies strike. Dhawan is gone, to a rather forgettable shot. Effort ball from Sammy, and at pace, there's no excuse for not seeing it early. It was banged in short, and bounced extra. Dhawan tried to stay beside the line and guide it over the slips, but never got into position. He ended up angling the bat at it, got the outside edge and the keeper takes it well, jumping up. 13/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Hyatt b Sammy 14 15 12 2 0 116.66
6.5 Kohli goes, and it is a moment for the cameramen. Slower ball from Sammy, full and enticing the early drive. Kohli fell for it, getting forward and looking to play across a little early, and he got a big leading edge. It ballooned up between point and cover, and both went for it. Not much calling, as Samuels and Hyatt converged. Almost a collision, but Hyatt holds the ball while Samuels holds Hyatt. And then they argue over who should have taken it! 48/2
View dismissal S Badrinath c †Fletcher b Bishoo 43 47 37 5 0 116.21
18.1 the un-outable has been outed. Classic piece of legspin deception from Bishoo. Who said there can't be beauty in T20s? 19th over of the innings.. the leggie comes on and tosses it up with drift, temptingly on leg stump. Badri senses a kill, and skips out to the pitch, but falls just short as the ball drops on him, lands, grips and tweaks away past the bat. The keeper does the rest. Late clarification: Badri got an edge as he toppled out of the crease, and was hence caught. Not stumped. 134/6
View dismissal SK Raina* c Barnwell b Sammy 2 5 6 0 0 33.33
8.4 68.7 mph, Captain takes captain out! Sammy has four, and he's been a revelation with the ball this Caribbean summer. Length ball, it is just the nagging hold he has had on the batsmen that has brought this about. The ball landed on a length and seemed to grip again, came off slower than Raina thought and he went for the expansive loft over midwicket. Ended up miscuing it straight to mid-on, who takes it well running back. 56/4
View dismissal RG Sharma b Barnwell 26 33 23 0 2 113.04
17.4 78.5 mph, six and out. Barnwell bowls a very similar ball, tempting Rohit to have another go. Rohit obliges, looks to go straighter this time, but just misses a straight ball and the furniture is rearranged. 127/5

View dismissal ADS Fletcher b MM Patel 11 20 16 0 1 68.75
4.2 81.9 mph, bowled'im! Full and straight on the off stump, a yorker, Fletcher had made room and didn't get his bat down in time, it crashed into off 22/2
View dismissal LMP Simmons c Kohli b Ashwin 9 19 9 1 0 100.00
3.5 53.5 mph, given, was the conventional offspinner, Ashwin dropped it short, holding back the length, turned in sharply, Simmons was clearly cramped for room as it spun big, did he get an inside edge? It popped off Parthiv's gloves and Kohli took it off the ricochet at slip. Replays show it struck Parthiv's helmet. We don't really know if there was an inside edge, but even if there was one, that cannot be given out since the ball made contact with the fielder/keeper's helmet before being caught. Fletcher spoke to the umpire about that, but a replay wasn't called for. The original decision has been upheld and Simmons had to go. Replays again show that there was no contact with the bat either. It came off the thigh. A poor decision in the end 22/1
View dismissal DM Bravo b Harbhajan Singh 41 47 41 5 0 100.00
15.5 60.8 mph, West Indies slipping further, was in the slot outside off, went for the slog-sweep, was targeting cow corner, ended up getting an inside edge straight onto the stumps 92/4
View dismissal MN Samuels c †PA Patel b Harbhajan Singh 27 44 29 3 0 93.10
15.3 52.1 mph, Harbhajan gave that one a bit of air and held back the pace, Samuels had made his mind up, went for the slog-sweep, trying to clear deep square leg, got a top edge and Parthiv kept his eyes on it to take a well-judged catch 88/3

16.2 65.3 mph, Sammy's holed out, was the slower one from Praveen and he swings it straight into the palms of Kohli at long-on, no hope from here on 93/5
