38.5

I Sharma to Sammy, no run, outside off and that is left alone

38.6

I Sharma to Sammy, no run, Sammy has the bat waving around before the bowler delivers, a terrific sight that, he brings down the bat to block out the final ball of the over, Ishant going well in the Powerplay

West Indies 164/6   DJG Sammy 0* (3b)

40.3

I Sharma to Sammy, no run, outside off, keeping it on the short side, 138kph, left alone by the batsman

40.4

I Sharma to Sammy, no run, keeps it short, clearly a tactic here, Sammy looks to swipe that to the leg side and he misses, during the IPL Ishant would have learnt a lot about how Sammy bats

40.5

I Sharma to Sammy, 1 run, short of a length ball, a bit of width there, Sammy slices that past cover for a single, just two off the over so far

West Indies 167/6   DJG Sammy 1* (6b)

41.2

Jadeja to Sammy, no run, round-arm action, not much flight, just outside off, defended

41.3

Jadeja to Sammy, no run, a bit more width, slapped to point, another dot ball

41.4

Jadeja to Sammy, 2 runs, is that a run-out, Sammy defended to the right of the bowler, Jadeja was onto the ball quickly, Sammy went for the quick single, Jadeja pounced and got the direct hit, Sammy dived a touch too early but it was still enough for him to make his ground, the third umpire takes plenty of replays to make his decision, and what's more, the West Indies pinched an overthrow as well

41.5

Jadeja to Sammy, no run, outside off, and that is slapped towards point, just three off this over so far

41.6

Jadeja to Sammy, no run, pitches on a length and spins away outside off, past the keeper and to Ashwin at slip, only a muted appeal for a catch after Sammy missed that

West Indies 171/6   DJG Sammy 3* (11b)

43.3

Jadeja to Sammy, 1 run, a touch short, Sammy arches back and slaps that towards sweeper cover, can they get two, no just one

44.3

Yadav to Sammy, 1 run, looks for a ferocious pull but badly mistimes it and the ball rolls away to the leg side for a single

44.6

Yadav to Sammy, no run, short of length ball, Sammy was initially looking for the big hit, didn't have the room, and the ball wasn't full enough either, blocked back to the bowler

West Indies 182/8   DJG Sammy 5* (16b)

46.1

Yadav to Sammy, 2 runs, shortish ball, Sammy looks to muscle it over the leg side, edges it oer the top of cover and they scamper two

46.2

Yadav to Sammy, SIX, serious power there! wow, short of length ball and that is a monstrous flat-batted hit from Sammy, sends that crashing into the sightscreen

46.3

Yadav to Sammy, 1 run, another big swing, this time the ball rolls towards long-on for a single, can Roach survive this over?

West Indies 191/9   DJG Sammy 14* (19b 1x6)

47.1

Jadeja to Sammy, no run, huge backlift from Sammy, who wanted to hammer that over the leg side, but at the last moment decides to defend to the off side

47.2

Jadeja to Sammy, no run, more defence from Sammy

47.3

Jadeja to Sammy, 2 runs, on the pads, Sammy tucks it towards midwicket, immediately calls for two, the throw is poor though and Roach manages to scamper back

47.4

Jadeja to Sammy, FOUR, a rare poor ball from Jadeja, a touch too short, Sammy swivels and crunches that behind square leg for four, Sammy punches the air after that

47.5

Jadeja to Sammy, 1 run, pushed towards mid-off for a single, Roach has to survive one ball this over

West Indies 198/9   DJG Sammy 21* (24b 1x4 1x6)

48.1

I Sharma to Sammy, FOUR, pitched up and outside off, crashed past cover for four, all power from Sammy, who is playing a crucial hand here

48.2

I Sharma to Sammy, SIX, full ball and that is a massive hit from Sammy, Ishant goes for a yorker, he misses and goes for the maximum instead, a huge backlift and clean swing, sends that for a big six

48.3

I Sharma to Sammy, FOUR, short and outside off, Sammy wanted to clobber that over the midwicket boundary, gets a top edge and that flies down to third man for four more, West Indies are now 212, Sammy 35 off 27

48.4

I Sharma to Sammy, SIX, another six, Ishant was having one of those rare days when he bowled economically, it is still not a disaster, but he's now gone for 20 in his four previous deliveries, this was short and Sammy absolutely powers it over long-off for another boundary

48.5

I Sharma to Sammy, 1 run, swung away to deep square leg for one more, one ball for Roach to bat
