West Indies won by 16 runs
5 December 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Yadav to Hyatt, FOUR, a wonderful shot to end the dot-ball streak, short of length and outside off, hangs back and chops that in front of point for four, nicely done by Hyatt

West Indies 6/1   DP Hyatt 5* (14b 1x4)   UT Yadav 2-1-4-0

Mithun to Samuels, FOUR, a boundary, Samuels is tired of waiting and watching, he nearly lost his wicket there, he wanted to loft it over the infield, and just about manages to do that, the ball lobs over mid-off lands just outside the inner circle before racing for four

West Indies 17/1   MN Samuels 8* (17b 1x4)   A Mithun 0.5-0-6-0

Mithun to Samuels, FOUR, two in a row, stands tall and lashes that in front of point, played on the up that shot, 11 off the over, more than doubles the total, not a good start for Mithun

West Indies 21/1   MN Samuels 12* (18b 2x4)   A Mithun 1-0-10-0

Yadav to Samuels, FOUR, this time he gets it past mid-off, a fuller ball is driven to the left of a diving mid-off for a boundary, Samuels doesn't care too much about getting his feet in the right place, just goes with his hands and connects well this time

West Indies 52/2   MN Samuels 25* (44b 3x4)   UT Yadav 3.4-1-10-0

Mithun to Bravo, FOUR, flat-batted by Bravo for four, does Lara play that shot? it was played uppishly and past mid-off for a boundary, a length ball outside off, not much wrong with it

West Indies 56/2   DM Bravo 8* (11b 1x4)   A Mithun 5.2-0-22-1

Yadav to Samuels, FOUR, swings this to the square leg boundary for four, it was short from Umesh and it sat up for Samuels, so that's 10 off the first two deliveries

West Indies 68/2   MN Samuels 35* (48b 4x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 4.2-1-20-0

Yadav to Samuels, FOUR, Samuesl has decided everything-must-go, it was slow and short, well outside off stump, samuels cracks that past point for a boundary, 14 off the over

West Indies 72/2   MN Samuels 39* (50b 5x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 4.4-1-24-0

Jadeja to Bravo, FOUR, Bravo has had enough of running, smacks a full ball to long-on for four

West Indies 84/2   DM Bravo 18* (28b 2x4)   RA Jadeja 3.2-1-8-0

Raina to Ramdin, FOUR, Ramdin gets going with a boundary, he was given a bit of room, chops it past deep point for a boundary, playing it late to get the placement right

West Indies 102/2   D Ramdin 4* (3b 1x4)   SK Raina 0.5-0-5-0

Jadeja to Ramdin, FOUR, on the pads again, Ramdin shuffles across and manages to get it fine, beats Ashwin at short fine leg, Ashwin gives chase but the ball wins the race

West Indies 136/3   D Ramdin 22* (30b 2x4)   RA Jadeja 6.5-1-25-0

Yadav to Pollard, FOUR, short of a length and on the pads, cleverly done by Pollard, the big hit didn't come off but he just worked that wide of a diving short fine leg for a boundary, hardly any effort behind that stroke

West Indies 162/3   KA Pollard 20* (23b 1x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 5.5-1-31-0

Yadav to Ramdin, FOUR, the cut is productive once again for Ramdin, width from Umesh, slashes wide of deep backward point for four

West Indies 171/3   D Ramdin 37* (50b 3x4)   UT Yadav 6.1-1-36-0

Yadav to Pollard, FOUR, bangs in the bouncer, Pollard goes for the pull, top-edge well over the keeper, bounces once before going for four

West Indies 176/3   KA Pollard 28* (29b 2x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 6.3-1-41-0

Yadav to Russell, FOUR, short of length ball outside off, Umesh gets the outside edge, would have been gobbled up if there was a first slip, there isn't one, and Russell is off the mark with a boundary, 14 off the over

West Indies 181/4   AD Russell 4* (1b 1x4)   UT Yadav 7-1-46-1

Vinay Kumar to Sammy, FOUR, a low full toss is clouted over cover for four, Sammy is off the mark

West Indies 186/5   DJG Sammy 4* (1b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 6.5-1-25-2

Ashwin to Russell, FOUR, plenty of width there, Russell slaps it over backward point for four, that's the first boundary off Ashwin's bowling today

West Indies 192/5   AD Russell 9* (4b 2x4)   R Ashwin 9.2-0-30-1

Vinay Kumar to Sammy, FOUR, crisp strike that, brings up the 200, a full toss outside off, Sammy powers it to the deep extra cover boundary

West Indies 200/5   DJG Sammy 11* (5b 2x4)   R Vinay Kumar 7.2-1-31-2

Vinay Kumar to Sammy, FOUR, slow and wide outside off, Sammy waits on it and steers the ball to the deep backward point boundary, a productive over this, third man can't come across to stop that

West Indies 207/5   DJG Sammy 16* (7b 3x4)   R Vinay Kumar 7.5-1-38-2

Mithun to Sammy, FOUR, how did Sammy manage to get that away for four, it was full and very very wide, somehow Sammy didn't just reach it, he managed to get enough power on it to chop it past deep backward point for four

West Indies 222/5   DJG Sammy 23* (12b 4x4)   A Mithun 6.1-0-29-1

Mithun to Sammy, FOUR, another length ball, another swat, another boundary, wide of long-on this time, not the best length from Mithun here

West Indies 226/5   DJG Sammy 27* (13b 5x4)   A Mithun 6.2-0-33-1

Yadav to Russell, FOUR, brilliant hit this, Umesh bowls a full delivery, Russell can't get under it but somehow manages to get enough power as he whacks that dead straight, long-on and long-off converge but not quick enough to stop the ball

West Indies 244/5   AD Russell 24* (13b 3x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 8.1-1-59-1

Yadav to Russell, FOUR, four more, carnage here, and this was a poor delivery, a nice full toss on leg stump, clubbed past long-on for four

West Indies 248/5   AD Russell 28* (14b 4x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 8.2-1-63-1
