3.2

I Sharma to Charles, no run, short of length ball, 133.7kph, heading for off stump, more defence

3.3

I Sharma to Charles, no run, a muted appeal for lbw, the first of the day, that was sliding down the leg side, and might have gone over the stumps height as well, Charles was looking to flick to the leg side and he misses

3.4

I Sharma to Charles, no run, angled into middle and leg, another short of length ball is calmly defended

3.5

I Sharma to Charles, 1 run, again opens the face, sends the ball to the right of third man for a single

3.6

I Sharma to Gayle, FOUR, Power. pitched up by Ishant and that is lashed down the ground by Gayle, between the bowler and mid-off, when Gayle hits them, no need to bother chasing, four more to Gayle, who has begun briskly

West Indies 18/0   I Sharma 1-0-5-0

5.1

5.3

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, length ball on off stump, careful defence from the crease from Bravo

5.4

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, too wide outside off to interest Bravo this early in the innings, 133.5kph from Ishant, that is also left alone

5.5

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, length ball on leg stump, tucked towards short leg, no run results, just one off the over so far

5.6

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, outside off and another leave, Ishant finishes a tidy over

West Indies 26/1   I Sharma 2-0-6-0

20.1

I Sharma to Samuels, no run, Sharma returns for a new spell, short of a length and the bounce silences Samuels, he pokes at it outside off

20.2

I Sharma to Samuels, no run, fuller in length on the off stump and he pushes it to the off side

20.3

I Sharma to Samuels, no run, Samuels at sea here, this was even wider outside off and he was fishing at it without moving his feet

20.4

I Sharma to Samuels, no run, Samuels not looking comfortable against Ishant, this was fuller and he had to lunge forward to defend

20.5

I Sharma to Samuels, no run, pushes it softly towards cover and thinks of a single but heads back

20.6

I Sharma to Samuels, no run, Samuels must be glad the over has ended, this was outside off and he decides to leave it alone not in the most convincing way though

West Indies 104/2   I Sharma 3-1-6-0

22.1

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, this was angling across the left-hander and he leaves it alone

22.2

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, lands it outside off and he pushes it to the off side

22.3

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, Bravo still looks shaky, not himself today, tentatively blocks this out

22.4

I Sharma to DM Bravo, 1 run, prods forward and gets an inside edge towards midwicket and sets off

22.5

I Sharma to Sarwan, no run, Sarwan gets across and softly pushes it towards point and tells Bravo to stay back

22.6

I Sharma to Sarwan, no run, another tight over from Ishant, he doesn't give much room, punches it towards point

West Indies 106/3   I Sharma 4-1-7-0

24.1

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, keeps it outside the off stump and he leaves it alone

24.2

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, huge cheers and Raina effects an athletic save at short cover, it was solidly driven, super fielding

24.3

I Sharma to DM Bravo, FOUR, a sharp bouncer! Bravo wanted to hook it and took his eyes off the ball, lobs off the top half of the bat and clears Dhoni

24.4

I Sharma to DM Bravo, no run, close call for Bravo as he gets an inside edge to the pads

24.5

I Sharma to DM Bravo, 1 run, very neatly driven past the covers to the sweeper, only a single but Bravo will be glad he middled it

24.6

I Sharma to DJ Bravo, no run, teasing line from Ishant! He's a changed bowler today or what, this was slower, the batsman was poking forward and nearly edged it

West Indies 114/4   I Sharma 5-1-12-0

36.1

I Sharma to DJ Bravo, no run, defended towards the off side from the crease

36.2

I Sharma to DJ Bravo, no run, length ball on the pads, defended towards midwicket, thought of a single before deciding to turn back

36.3

I Sharma to DJ Bravo, 1 run, slower ball, 116kph, full and on the pads, fine leg was in the circle, that should have been put away for four, but the glance from the batsman only sends the ball to the man at short fine

36.4

I Sharma to Pollard, no run, a leading edge, drops short of the man at cover, a back of length ball, and that loops off Pollards bat towards the fielder, lands well short though

36.5

I Sharma to Pollard, 1 run, square driven towards cover point, powerfully struck, and Jadeja can't hold on to that, the misfield allows a single

36.6

I Sharma to DJ Bravo, 2 runs, Dwayne Bravo can look so stylish when in form, he casually flicks this slower length ball off the pads towards midwicket, something very Caribbean in that shot, fetches him a couple

West Indies 158/5   I Sharma 6-1-16-0

38.1

I Sharma to Pollard, no run, short of length ball on off stump, defended down the track

38.2

I Sharma to Pollard, no run, bangs it in short, Pollard spots it early and lets that 138kph ball through to the keeper

38.3

I Sharma to Pollard, no run, shortish once more, just outside off, defended from the crease to the off side

38.4

I Sharma to Pollard, 1 run, keeps it on the shorter side, Pollard blocks it towards cover, Raina fields and throws the ball between his legs without looking to see where the bowler is, Ishant was only a couple of yards away and that throw hits him on his backside, Raina has a laugh over it

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   I Sharma 7-1-17-0

40.1

I Sharma to Pollard, no run, bangs it in short and Pollard goes for a big cross-batted stroke, doesn't connect though

40.2

I Sharma to Pollard, 1 run, fuller than the previous one, Pollard stays in the crease and dabs the ball towards point for a single

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

40.6

I Sharma to Pollard, 1 run, fuller this time and on the pads, helped along to fine leg for one more

West Indies 168/6   I Sharma 8-1-20-0

42.1

I Sharma to Pollard, OUT, Ishant strikes, he abandons the short-ball strategy, fires this full, just where Pollard likes it, Pollard wanted to muscle that over long-on for six, doesn't hit it as well as he liked, picks out Bhuvneshwar at long-on, first wicket for Ishant who is rewarded for a good spell today

KA Pollard c Kumar b I Sharma 22 (41m 32b 0x4 2x6) SR: 68.75

42.2

I Sharma to Narine, no run, short of length and outside off, Narine shoulders arms to that one

42.3

I Sharma to Narine, no run, and once more Narine is happy to let the ball through to the keeper

42.4

I Sharma to Narine, no run, back of length ball on off stump, Narine gets behind the line and defends

42.5

I Sharma to Narine, no run, short of length and just outside off, Narine stays in the crease and defends towards point

42.6

I Sharma to Narine, 1 wide, a wide outside off stump, Ishant's chance of a wicket maiden disappears

42.6

I Sharma to Narine, 1 run, same length on leg stump, tucked to square leg for a single and Narine retains the strike

West Indies 173/7   I Sharma 9-1-22-1

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

48.6

I Sharma to Roach, no run, sensible stuff from Roach, it was a short of length ball outside off, Roach shoulders arms to that one

West Indies 219/9   I Sharma 10-1-43-1
