ICC Champions Trophy - 6th match, Group B
India won by 8 wickets (with 65 balls remaining)
Played at Kennington Oval, London (neutral venue)
11 June 2013 (50-over match)

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   J Charles 3* (12b)   B Kumar 3-0-9-1

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   DM Bravo 19* (46b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 1.5-1-1-1

Jadeja to Samuels, OUT, defends very close to the pads and it prompts a shout, he was given not out and India are reviewing it. It landed on the off stump and bent in a little with the angle, Samuels was forward, Hot Spot showed it hit the pad first and then the bat, the ball tracker showed that hitting leg stump, Aleem Dar's decision is overturned

MN Samuels lbw b Jadeja 1 (7m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

West Indies 105/3   DM Bravo 20* (51b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 3-1-3-2

Jadeja to Sarwan, OUT, RJ has taken three! Caught down the leg side, Jadeja pushed it wide of the leg stump, Sarwan was looking to glance it to fine leg, Dhoni was absolutely certain and so was Aleem Dar, Hot Spot confirmed the edge

RR Sarwan c †Dhoni b Jadeja 1 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

West Indies 109/4   DM Bravo 23* (57b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 4-1-6-3

Ashwin to DM Bravo, OUT, Darren's misery ends thanks to a brilliant delivery! Ashwin bowls from roind the wicket, he relies on flight and turn to outfox Darren Bravo, the batsman was down the track on seeing the flight and was forced to check his shot after the ball turned, he couldn't block it away, sharp turn and Dhoni did the rest

DM Bravo st †Dhoni b Ashwin 35 (108m 83b 2x4 0x6) SR: 42.16

West Indies 140/5   DJ Bravo 19* (29b 3x4)   R Ashwin 7.1-1-23-1

Yadav to DJ Bravo, OUT, looked like a sensational shot from Bravo, a flamboyant hook that Bravo didn't bother trying to keep on the ground, he connected well with that 142kph short ball from Umesh, but not well enough to clear the rope, and who was waiting for that one but the man himself, Ravindra Jadeja

DJ Bravo c Jadeja b Yadav 25 (55m 40b 3x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

West Indies 163/6   KA Pollard 17* (17b 2x6)   UT Yadav 5.5-0-41-1

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

West Indies 171/7   DJG Sammy 3* (11b)   I Sharma 8.1-1-20-1

Jadeja to Narine, OUT, and another one for Jadeja, the man can't do a thing wrong, Narine needed to turn over the strike to Sammy, instead he went for another high-risk stroke, a lofted drive against the spin, he edges it and it swirls to cover, career-best figures for Jadeja (so far)

SP Narine c Karthik b Jadeja 2 (8m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

West Indies 179/8   DJG Sammy 4* (12b)   RA Jadeja 6.4-1-15-4

Jadeja to Rampaul, OUT, five for Jadeja, so what if he missed a direct hit in the previous over, he hits the stumps this time, he bowls it full, Rampaul goes for the sweep and misses, the ball lands and turns in to crash into the stumps, this is now the best bowling performance by an Indian in the Champions Trophy

R Rampaul b Jadeja 2 (5m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

West Indies 182/9   DJG Sammy 5* (16b)   RA Jadeja 7.3-1-15-5
