0.2

Kumar to Gayle, no run, another leave just outside off

0.3

Kumar to Gayle, no run, this one comes in a touch and Gayle is struck just above the pad and below the thigh pad, he doesn't seem to be in too much pain

0.4

Kumar to Gayle, 1 run, strays on the pads, and that is tucked in front of square for the first run of the day

0.5

Kumar to Charles, no run, back of length ball on the stumps, Charles watchfully gets behind the line and defends that one

0.6

Kumar to Charles, no run, almost a yorker, a full ball that Charles manages to squeeze out to the leg side, good over to start from Bhuvneshwar

West Indies 1/0   B Kumar 1-0-1-0

2.1

Kumar to Charles, no run, defended towards the leg side by Charles

2.2

Kumar to Charles, no run, short of length ball, just outside off, Charles opens the face to steer the ball towards point

2.3

Kumar to Charles, no run, keeps pegging away at that off stump, this was 132 kph, careful defence from Charles

2.4

Kumar to Charles, 1 run, just outside off this time, again opens the face and plays it softly towards third man to get off the mark

2.5

Kumar to Gayle, no run, nearly an edge through to the keeper there, back of a length ball that swerves away late from Gayle, who throws his bat at it and misses

2.6

Kumar to Gayle, no run, a touch fuller, on middle and off, defended from the crease to the off side, another probing over from Bhuvneshwar

West Indies 13/0   B Kumar 2-0-2-0

4.1

Kumar to Charles, 1 run, on middle stump, and that is clipped towards square leg for a single

4.2

Kumar to Gayle, no run, short of length ball on off stump, not giving Gayle any room at all, pushed towards mid-off

4.3

Kumar to Gayle, 2 runs, Gayle charges out and wants to try throw Bhuvneshwar off his tidy line and length, not something you see this often in a Gayle innings, a thick inside-edge sends the ball behind square leg

4.4

Kumar to Gayle, FOUR, no need for extravagance when you can hit like that, a length ball just outside off, Gayle waits deep in the crease and plays a lofted straight drive that sends the ball rocketing over Bhuvesnhwar's head for four

4.5

Kumar to Gayle, no run, cramps up Gayle with a ball on middle and leg, defended towards midwicket

4.6

Kumar to Gayle, OUT, there is the wicket, Bhuvneshwar has done it, MS Dhoni had talked a lot about the importance of Gayle's wicket, and they have him early, a short of length ball again from Bhuvneshwar, not enough width for Gayle to cut that, he goes for the cut anyway, a thick top edge results and the ball flies towards first slip, where Ashwin clings on to a sharp overhead chance, huge blow that

CH Gayle c Ashwin b Kumar 21 (19m 18b 4x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

West Indies 25/1   B Kumar 3-0-9-1

6.1

Kumar to Charles, 1 run, Charles again gets a run by opening the face and sending the ball towards third man, most of his runs today have come in that region

6.2

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, angling across outside off, defended towards point

6.3

Kumar to DM Bravo, FOUR, full ball on the pads, hardly any effort as Bravo pushed at that one, but it was wonderfully timed, beats Dinesh Karthik at mid-on and races away for four

6.4

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, Bhuvneshwar reverts to his short of length and around off formula, Bravo shuffles to make a touch of room, chops the ball towards cover

6.5

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, a crisp drive towards cover, not placed well enough to get a run

6.6

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, length ball outside off, watchfully defended to the off side

8.1

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, length ball on off stump, defended towards cover

8.2

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, length ball on off stump, Bhuvneshwar continues to be impeccable with his line and length, defended back towards the bowler

8.3

Kumar to DM Bravo, 1 run, full and outside off, looks to drive that between cover and extra, doesn't time it too well though, the ball rolls towards extra cover

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

10.1

Kumar to DM Bravo, no run, length ball on the pads, defended to the leg side

10.2

Kumar to DM Bravo, 1 run, length ball just outside off, carved just behind point for a single

10.3

Kumar to Charles, FOUR, is Johnson Charles the most unpredictable batsman around? after that classic cover drive, he charges out and looks to muscle a length ball over mid-on, a thick outside edge down to third man for four

10.4

Kumar to Charles, 2 leg byes, off the pads and down to short fine leg for a leg bye

10.5

Kumar to Charles, no run, defended back towards the bowler
