India v West Indies

India won by 80 runs

0.6

Rampaul to Tendulkar, OUT, Done in by the shortish ball that straightened just outside off. Ravi Rampaul has gone berserk. Windies said they had a plan. It wasn't a bouncer, just leaped from short of length above waist and straightened outside off, Tendulkar stabbed at it by taking the bottom hand off the handle but the ball popped up to the keeper. umpire ruled not out, tendulkar walked, though.

SR Tendulkar c †Thomas b Rampaul 2 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 8/1   G Gambhir 1* (2b)   R Rampaul 1-0-8-1

8.3

Rampaul to Gambhir, OUT, Caught at third man! Gambhir goes for the dash and slap. He rushed down the track, got outside the leg and went for the cut. The ball bounced more than he thought and flew of the edge and landed into the palms of third man.

G Gambhir c Russell b Rampaul 22 (34m 26b 4x4 0x6) SR: 84.61

India 51/2   V Kohli 18* (21b 2x4)   R Rampaul 4.3-0-23-2

32.2

Rampaul to Kohli, OUT, Rampaul does it again. Will this 'reverse' the momentum? Top bowling from Rampaul, gets it to nip in sharply from a length outside off. Kohli plonks the front foot across plays a swat-swipe across the line, rivalled in ugliness only by the shot Michael Clarke played yesterday. The ball sneaks past and upsets the furniture. It is one of Kohli's main scoring shots, but at times he doesn't pull it off that well.

V Kohli b Rampaul 59 (128m 76b 5x4 0x6) SR: 77.63

India 173/3   Yuvraj Singh 78* (88b 8x4 1x6)   R Rampaul 7.2-0-35-3

41.4

Bishoo to Dhoni, OUT, Lovely leg break from Bishoo! Supah delivery. It was flighted on a length on the middle and leg, Dhoni went down the track but was beaten in the flight and went on to complete that big lofted hit. No luck. The ball dipped, turned and bounced over the stumps. Thomas collected it and quietly removed the bails. The stumper is stumped.

MS Dhoni st †Thomas b Bishoo 22 (41m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

India 218/4   Yuvraj Singh 101* (114b 10x4 1x6)   D Bishoo 9.4-0-47-1

43.5

Sammy to Raina, OUT, It could have been a wide- full and down the leg side- but raina, who had shuffled outside leg, reached out further down leg as he went down on his knee and swept it to right of short fine-leg where Ravi Rampaul pouched a sharp catch.

SK Raina c Rampaul b Sammy 4 (14m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 232/5   Yuvraj Singh 109* (119b 10x4 2x6)   DJG Sammy 5.5-0-34-1

44.6

Pollard to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Pollard is ecstatic. What celebrations. Yuvraj had tried to hit this on the up but hit it softly back to Pollard who rushes to midwicket region, stops, and screams in joy! Fine knock from Yuvraj who got a ton after 35 innings.

Yuvraj Singh c & b Pollard 113 (163m 123b 10x4 2x6) SR: 91.86

India 240/6   YK Pathan 2* (3b)   KA Pollard 10-0-49-1

46.4

Rampaul to Pathan, OUT, Clatter! Ravi Rampaul screams, "Wow!" A yorker that reverses in to the middle and off line. Yusuf goes for the big swing. And misses. Clatter!

YK Pathan b Rampaul 11 (16m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

India 251/7   Harbhajan Singh 2* (3b)   R Rampaul 8.4-0-42-4

47.5

Russell to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Pollard has taken a beauty but has dislocated his fingerOr so it appears. Oh ouch... what pain that must be.. He rushed forward from long-on and dived to take a very very fine catch. He immediately got up, looked to the dressing room and waved for the physio. That little finger looked really crooked. He has done it in. Oh dear. He now walks off the field

Harbhajan Singh c Pollard b Russell 3 (16m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 259/8   R Ashwin 7* (4b 1x4)   AD Russell 8.5-0-45-1

48.5

Rampaul to Khan, OUT, Five-for for Rampaul! His best ODI returns. Ever. Fab show. He is all smiles. It was the yorker again, Zaheer had shuffled to the off and looked to swing it to the on side. timber!

Z Khan b Rampaul 5 (4m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

India 267/9   R Ashwin 10* (7b 1x4)   R Rampaul 9.5-0-50-5

49.1

Russell to Patel, OUT, India don't play 50 overs. Again. He backed away, tried to open the bat-face and steer it to third man - that's the only shot he plays - and got an inside edge.

MM Patel b Russell 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 268/10   R Ashwin 10* (7b 1x4)   AD Russell 9.1-0-46-2
