8.4

Kumar to Charles, FOUR, Johnson Charles can hit them, he hadn't shown that most of today, but here he shows how string his bottom hand is, a pitched up delivery is swiped to the midwicket boundary

8.5

Kumar to Charles, FOUR, and once more, Charles has been keeping calm till now, but with him you never know when a crazy shot will come, this time he skips down the track and thumps the ball to midwicket for four more

8.6

Kumar to Charles, no run, Bhuvneshwar has his hands on his head as Charles gets an inside egde while looking to play the forward defensive, the ball rolls to the leg side instead of towards cover as Charles intended

West Indies 55/1   J Charles 26* (25b 5x4)

10.3

11.1

Ashwin to Charles, 1 run, clipped towards square leg for a single

11.4

Ashwin to Charles, 1 run, Charles is clueless against Ashwin, what was that shot he was playing? the carrom ball and he has no idea about it, a leading edge as he looks to play the ball to the leg side, the ball floats in the air and lands agonisingly wide of Ashwin, Charles looked seriously inept against that variation from Ashiwn

West Indies 66/1   J Charles 33* (31b 6x4)

12.2

Kohli to Charles, 1 run, almost carries back to Kohli, a firmly drive that eludes Kohli

12.4

Kohli to Charles, no run, huge lbw appeal from India as Chrles stays in the crease and looks to play a length ball to the leg side, he misses and is hit on the pads in front of leg, that would have missed the stumps though

12.5

Kohli to Charles, no run, Charles gets on the front foot foot and defends

12.6

Kohli to Charles, 2 runs, drops it short and Charles muscles that towards sweeper cover, seemed headed for the boundary but Ishant puts in a dive to stop that

13.3

Ashwin to Charles, 2 runs, the 50 stand comes up as Charles helps the ball along to fine leg for a couple

13.4

Ashwin to Charles, no run, on leg stump, again Charles glances the ball but can't beat short fine

13.5

Ashwin to Charles, no run, outside off this time, a better line from Ashwin, it"s that carrom ball again which has Charles flummoxed, he looks to chop that through the off and is beaten

13.6

Ashwin to Charles, no run, another carrom ball, defended back towards the bowler

West Indies 75/1   J Charles 38* (39b 6x4)

14.5

Kohli to Charles, FOUR, another boundary for Charles, who has galloped to 42 off 40, gets on one knee and sweeps that past the diving man at backward square leg, nicely done by Charles

14.6

Kohli to Charles, no run, lashed towards cover, caught by Raina who pretends that it is a catch, the crowd screams, wasn't a chance as that bounced before reaching the fielder

West Indies 80/1   J Charles 42* (41b 7x4)

15.4

Ashwin to Charles, no run, length ball just outside off, defended off the front foot to the leg side

15.5

Ashwin to Charles, 1 run, a huge pause from Ashwin before he delivers, it is an offspinner, played towards square leg

West Indies 82/1   J Charles 43* (43b 7x4)

16.2

Kohli to Charles, no run, length ball heading for middle, solidly defended to the leg side

16.3

Kohli to Charles, SIX, that's gone away for six, an inside-out high-risk stroke from Charles, backs away a touch to make room, a full ball is launched to the deep extra cover boundary, it is a short boundary, and that just about clears the rope, don't think the Umesh, who was in the deep, picked up where the ball was, didn't move too quickly towards the ball

16.4

Kohli to Charles, 1 run, full ball just outside off, punched towards long-on for a single to bring up Charles' 50

West Indies 91/1   J Charles 50* (46b 7x4 1x6)

18.1

Ashwin to Charles, no run, bit of turn and he gets forward and blocks

18.2

Ashwin to Charles, 4 runs, Charles makes room before delivery, carves a shorter one over Ishant at short fine leg, Ishant gives chase and just about pulls it back, overthrows as well

18.3

Ashwin to Charles, no run, tossed up and he comes forward and blocks

18.4

Ashwin to Charles, no run

18.5

Ashwin to Charles, SIX, just over wide long-on! Tossed up and Charles went forward and lofted him downtown to one of the longer boundaries

18.6

Ashwin to Charles, no run, slides down the leg side from round the wicket, he tries to tuck it away

West Indies 102/1   J Charles 60* (52b 7x4 2x6)

19.3

Jadeja to Charles, no run, keeps it tight, slip in place, Charles knocks it softly to the on side

19.4

Jadeja to Charles, no run, he sweeps and it goes straight to Umaesh at square leg, he was placed for that shot

19.5

Jadeja to Charles, OUT, that was as plumb as it gets! This was a flatter delivery from Jadeja, on the off stump and not turning, Charles was back at the crease playing for the turn, tried to play across the line, that would have taken the off stump

J Charles lbw b Jadeja 60 (78m 55b 7x4 2x6) SR: 109.09

West Indies 103/2   J Charles 60 (55b 7x4 2x6)
