Sammy to Sehwag, OUT, the drinks break works a charm for West Indies, Sehwag is gone first ball after that, it wasn't a great delivery or anything, a length ball that Sehwag wanted to murder, he can only club it as far as a straight-ish short midwicket, West Indies are ecstatic, and why not. The bat turned in Sehwag's hands as he played that shot

V Sehwag c Barath b Sammy 38 (65m 33b 8x4 0x6) SR: 115.15

India 66/1   G Gambhir 26* (41b 4x4)   DJG Sammy 3.1-0-29-1

FH Edwards to Gambhir, OUT, another ordinary delivery gets West Indies a wicket, Gambhir will be kicking himself after this, a length ball well outside off, Gambhir goes for the drive, pops it straight to short cover, and West Indies have struck, you-know-who coming in to bat now

G Gambhir c Barath b FH Edwards 65 (147m 103b 8x4 0x6) SR: 63.10

India 149/2   R Dravid 42* (73b 7x4)   FH Edwards 8.2-0-32-1

Bishoo to Tendulkar, OUT, stop that countdown, Tendulkar is gone, just as Gavaskar was mentioning the swelling crowd, Tendulkar falls to Bishoo again, a short ball which turns away, Tendulkar looks to pull off the back foot, can't beat Marlon Samuels at midwicket, India can get back to work now

SR Tendulkar c Samuels b Bishoo 38 (74m 71b 5x4 0x6) SR: 53.52

India 205/3   R Dravid 56* (109b 7x4)   D Bishoo 17-0-52-1

Brathwaite to Dravid, OUT, Brathwaite gets his first Test wicket, and it's a huge wicket, Dravid stays back to a length delivery and is bowled off the under-edge, that one turned in quite a but, he is furious with himself to be dismissed at this late stage of the day, that too when West Indies were just going through the motions, you can't make this stuff up

R Dravid b Brathwaite 119 (295m 207b 9x4 2x6) SR: 57.48

India 345/4   VVS Laxman 72* (114b 5x4)   KC Brathwaite 2-0-9-1

Roach to Sharma, OUT, and another wicket here, the nightwatchman Ishant Sharma is gone, a bouncer from Roach just outside off, Ishant forced to play that, hangs his bat at it after standing tall, feathered to the keeper, West Indies ending the day strongly

I Sharma c †Baugh b Roach 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 346/5   VVS Laxman 73* (116b 5x4)   KAJ Roach 15.3-1-57-1

Sammy to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, lbw! Sammy bowls a full ball just pitching in line with the stumps and going straight through to Yuvraj, who tried to play across the line by bringing his bat across his front pad. There was no inside edge before the ball crashed into the pad below the knee roll. Looked quite out. Yuvraj's troubled innings had ended.

Yuvraj Singh lbw b Sammy 25 (52m 35b 5x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

India 396/6   VVS Laxman 94* (143b 8x4)   DJG Sammy 14.5-0-87-2

Roach to Dhoni, OUT, caught behind, and it's not a no-ball this time! Dhoni tried to cut a short of a length ball through point, he got a thick edge through to Baugh. He departs after 224-run partnership. Dhoni had been caught twice off no-balls from Roach, on 13 and 16

MS Dhoni c †Baugh b Roach 144 (181m 175b 10x4 5x6) SR: 82.28

India 620/7   VVS Laxman 169* (275b 11x4)   KAJ Roach 24.3-1-103-2
