6,7,8,9 November 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50

  • Overs 101-150

Ojha to Powell, OUT, impressive spin out of nowhere, and Powell is gone. Tossed up on off stump from round the stumps. The previous balls had straightened down the line, but this one burst in sharply. Powell was pressing forward with bat outside the line. It didn't matter if he was offering a shot, since the ball hit him in front of off and middle. Would have taken out leg stump. Umpire Dharmasena reckons so, in any case, and it seems to be a fair decision. Mind you, no UDRS in this series.

KOA Powell lbw b Ojha 14 (51m 40b 3x4 0x6) SR: 35.00

West Indies 25/1   KC Brathwaite 10* (33b 1x4)   PP Ojha 2-2-0-1

Ojha to KA Edwards, OUT, this is top-class stuff from Ojha, he's out-done another batsman here. He has been flighting them all day, but this time he slows it up just a touch. Kirk again pressed forward, looking for the drive but was a touch early into the shot, and he wasn't to the pitch to make matters worse. He ended up scooping it right back, and this time Ojha gets both hands to it and holds on to the sharp catch.

KA Edwards c & b Ojha 15 (37m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

West Indies 45/2   KC Brathwaite 15* (62b 1x4)   PP Ojha 7.3-4-8-2

Ashwin to Bravo, OUT, Ashwin strikes timber for his first wicket in Tests. Quick offbreak, angled in from round the stumps, hurries off the turf and straightens down the line. Should Bravo have been on the front foot? He stays back and tries to cut though there is no room to work with. He misses and the stumps are in a mess. That was a really poor shot, he was cutting from the leg stump line!

DM Bravo b Ashwin 12 (32m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

West Indies 72/3   KC Brathwaite 30* (97b 3x4)   R Ashwin 9.5-2-23-1

Ojha to Brathwaite, OUT, Brathwaite's resistance is over. MS Dhoni has pulled off a smart stumping, the sort you see from the smartest cookies in gully cricket. What a set up. Ojha sends this down a little wider, a little slower, but just as full as he has been all day. Brathwaite is sucked out into the extensive forward lean and prod, but the ball breaks away and leaves him groping. Dhoni took almost no time to collect the ball and whip out the bails. The quickest hands you will ever see. Reminiscent of the stumping he pulled off for Ojha v Michael Clarke in Bangalore last year. The third umpire finds Brathwaite's back foot is still in the process of getting back in. With another keeper, it might have.

KC Brathwaite st †Dhoni b Ojha 63 (262m 212b 4x4 0x6) SR: 29.71

West Indies 180/4   S Chanderpaul 73* (107b 5x4 2x6)   PP Ojha 22.5-6-40-3

Ashwin to Samuels, OUT, and he's nailed him with a slider. The last one too held its line, and this wasn't a bad ploy at all to a batsman who stays back and tries to read the spin off the pitch. This one was full, Samuels didn't have much time to realise it was holding its line and poked at it with hard hands. The ball took a thin edge, Dhoni completed his 200th dismissal, and Ashwin's second. Huge blow this, Samuels is as key to the WI cause as Chanders.

MN Samuels c †Dhoni b Ashwin 15 (31m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

West Indies 200/5   S Chanderpaul 78* (130b 5x4 2x6)   R Ashwin 20.2-2-62-2

Ojha to Baugh, OUT, Ojha strikes in his first over of the day as Baugh misses the sweep, the ball carried in from a fullish length to catch him plumb in front of off on the back leg, the line was a touch too straight probably for him to be attempting the forcing sweep

CS Baugh lbw b Ojha 27 (99m 71b 3x4 0x6) SR: 38.02

West Indies 269/6   S Chanderpaul 115* (189b 7x4 2x6)   PP Ojha 30-8-60-4

Ojha to Sammy, OUT, maiden Test five-for for Ojha, the arm ball slides in and catches Sammy deep in the crease on the pad, pitched around middle and carried in, lot of angle on that one, umpire Tucker does not think that would have gone down leg, looked to be a fair call

DJG Sammy lbw b Ojha 5 (8m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

West Indies 281/7   S Chanderpaul 118* (194b 7x4 2x6)   PP Ojha 30.3-8-64-5

Sharma to Chanderpaul, OUT, Chanders is gone too now, West Indies falling apart today, it was the shuffle that did him in, Ishant had been slanting it in with some nip from wide of the crease, chanders was doing the shuffle to negotiate them, this one came back in a bit more for his comfort and bounced normally, which would be not that normal at the Kotla, Chanders missed the nurdle, and was struck in front of leg and middle, umpire dharmasena has no doubts about it

S Chanderpaul lbw b Sharma 118 (286m 196b 7x4 2x6) SR: 60.20

West Indies 281/8   R Rampaul 0* (3b)   I Sharma 23.2-5-68-1

Ashwin to Rampaul, OUT, and yet another leg before, Ashwin started to appeal a touch late, slowly at first, but his appeal gained confidence as it grew longer, he had struck Rampaul with a quickish one that hurried in, Rampaul was pushing well outside the line even as it struck him in front of middle

R Rampaul lbw b Ashwin 12 (31m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

West Indies 304/9   FH Edwards 10* (19b 2x4)   R Ashwin 26.3-4-81-3

Ojha to FH Edwards, OUT, sixth wicket for Pragyan Ojha as West Indies' collapse is complete today morning, Fidel going after a flighted full one outside off and only slicing it to point

FH Edwards c Sehwag b Ojha 10 (31m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 47.61
