View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Samuels) 67 100 67 11 0 100.00
22.5 Pollard to Sehwag, Gambhir is gone. Good work by Samuels at straight extra cover. Sehwag punches this down the track, thinks he can get an easy single to long-ff, to which GG responds too. But Samuels act fast and intercepts. Sehwag now sends Gambhir back. The bowler hasn't yet come back to the stumps, so Samuels needs a direct hit. He produces one 176/1
View dismissal V Sehwag* c sub (A Martin) b Pollard 219 208 149 25 7 146.97
46.3 66.0 mph, He is gone. He hasn't batted 50 overs till, but look at that score. Sehwag has mis-hit this attempt at hitting a six over long-off. Ends up skying this to Martin at long-off. Almost every West Indian has come up to shake his hand before he walks off. Rohit congratulates him too. And just before he crosses the fence, Sehwag looks back and raises his bat for the crowd. Lovely response from them 376/4
View dismissal SK Raina run out (Russell) 55 76 44 6 0 125.00
40.2 from Roach, full toss on middle and leg, pushed down to long-off. He has played it with soft hands, takes Russell on, but the throw is directed at Raina's end and is deadly accurate. Raina is caught short despite the dive. Two wickets gone both run-outs. It was actually Sehwag's call to come back for the second after they had ambled for the first run 316/2
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Rampaul b Russell 10 14 10 0 0 100.00
43.2 71.6 mph, and finally a catch has been taken. Jadeja plays an ungainly flick-pull to a slower short ball that has cramped it up. The ball is dying on the midwicket, but Rampaul runs in and takes it low 341/3
View dismissal RG Sharma b Roach 27 21 16 3 0 168.75
47.6 90.0 mph, that's more of what you need on such days. A yorker at 145ks. Bounces about 10 inches short of the stumps, and takes the off pole out. Sharma is beaten by the pace of it 393/5

  West Indies innings (target: 419 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal LMP Simmons c †Patel b Jadeja 36 36 35 6 1 102.85
9.3 56.4 mph, the attempted cut is edged to the keeper. That wasn't short enough, Simmons ricked back, went really hard at it but only managed a thick edge. The ball bobbled in Parthiv's gloves but he held on 63/2
View dismissal KOA Powell run out (R Sharma/Ashwin) 7 8 5 1 0 140.00
1.6 Ashwin to Simmons, and Rahul Sharma makes his first contribution. But Powell has run himself out here. Simmons just pushed the ball to the off side and Powell bolted down the pitch as if a firecracker had been set off near him. Was halfway down the pitch and Rahul Sharma just had to toss the ball back to Ashwin who removed the bails 13/1
View dismissal MN Samuels b R Sharma 33 38 26 4 2 126.92
11.6 59.9 mph, and Rahul Sharma has his first international wicket. Its a topspinner and Samuels tried to cut. There was no sidespin and he's bottom edged it onto his stumps. Rahul's victory run has ended somewhere around the point boundary. He's clearly quite excited 81/3
View dismissal DP Hyatt b R Sharma 11 19 17 2 0 64.70
13.6 59.1 mph, bowled him. So this is why this bloke's in the team. A quick legspinner has done Hyatt through the legs. Hyatt was coming down the track, but he's got in a real tangle. The ball pitches outside leg stump, Hyatt stretches to reach the pitch but it turns straight through his legs. What a start to Rahul Sharma's career. Two wickets in two overs. Another five-for for a debutant? 90/4
View dismissal D Ramdin c RG Sharma b Raina 96 133 96 12 0 100.00
49.2 58.6 mph, and he's thrown it away. Skies an attempted slog-sweep and mid-on keeps his nerve to hold a really high catch 265/10
View dismissal KA Pollard b R Sharma 3 8 4 0 0 75.00
15.6 58.4 mph, short and Pollard's missed it! That was really short but it was the topspinner. Pollard had a big swing but he's completely missed the ball and it's hit the top of off. Rahul Sharma must think he's in a dream 100/5
View dismissal AD Russell st †Patel b Raina 29 30 24 1 3 120.83
23.2 56.5 mph, appeal for a stumping ans that's gone. Russell was attempting a sweep and he's dragged his back foot out of the crease. The ball from Raina was angled across the right-hander and it beat the bat. Parthiv was quick to remove the bails 140/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Mithun b Ashwin 2 4 6 0 0 33.33
24.4 56.7 mph, that's short and slapped straight down Mithun's throat at long-off. That's disappointing from Sammy. It was a long hop and Sammy could have hit anywhere. He's chosen to flat bat it in the air to long-off. 145/7
View dismissal R Rampaul c sub (MK Tiwary) b Jadeja 10 22 31 1 0 32.25
32.2 54.5 mph, straight down long-on's throat. The attempted slog-sweep is well-timed but the placement is all wrong. That went really flat too. Not enough elevation. Went quickly to long-on who took the catch at waist height 168/8
View dismissal KAJ Roach c & b Jadeja 7 34 19 1 0 36.84
38.5 51.6 mph, driven straight back to the bowler. Roach clearly lost his patience. Tried to hit Jadeja down the ground but didn't get to the pitch and the ball just stopped in him. Went back quite quickly but Jadeja holds on for his 50th ODI wicket 201/9
