West Indies tour of India, 3rd ODI: India v West Indies at Ahmedabad, Dec 5, 2011
West Indies won by 16 runs
5 December 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Vinay Kumar to Simmons, OUT, the end of Simmons? the umpires are conferring about a caught-behind chance, they want the third umpire to confirm the edge carried to the keeper, it was a short of length ball that is a slightly wider than the previous two deliveries, Simmons fishes at it outside off, definite edge, many replays needed here, on the first replay I thought it landed on Parthiv's fingers, the third umpire wants about a dozen replays to be sure, and he finally decides that carried, a rare ODI failure for Simmons this year

LMP Simmons c †Patel b Vinay Kumar 1 (12m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

West Indies 2/1   DP Hyatt 1* (8b)   R Vinay Kumar 1.4-0-2-1

Mithun to Hyatt, OUT, looked like a gutterball but has turned into a strike, Mithun slides it down the leg side, Hyatt shuffles across and looks to send that to fine leg, gets a thin edge, Parthiv gets a second catch, Hyatt should be furious with himself for getting out in this fashion, especially with the thin West Indian batting, a first ODI wicket for Mithun

DP Hyatt c †Patel b Mithun 20 (56m 39b 1x4 1x6) SR: 51.28

West Indies 42/2   MN Samuels 19* (32b 2x4)   A Mithun 3.1-0-13-1

Ashwin to Samuels, 1 run, gently done by Samuels, leaning forward and guiding the ball in front of point for a single

DM Bravo retired hurt 26 (48m 41b 2x4 0x6) SR: 63.41

West Indies 97/2   MN Samuels 47* (68b 5x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 4-0-11-0

Ashwin to Samuels, OUT, Samuels is gone, making room early on to go for the expansive drive, Ashwin skids it through and the off stump is pegged back, once again the Batting Powerplay proves dangerous to the batting team

MN Samuels b Ashwin 58 (112m 93b 5x4 1x6) SR: 62.36

West Indies 122/3   D Ramdin 14* (21b 1x4)   R Ashwin 7.4-0-22-1

Yadav to Ramdin, OUT, third catch for Parthiv, Ramdin is gone, Umesh rolls the fingers to take off the pace, again it is a little wide outside off, Ramdin looks to slash it through the off, nicks it to Parthiv

D Ramdin c †Patel b Yadav 38 (59m 52b 3x4 0x6) SR: 73.07

West Indies 177/4   KA Pollard 29* (30b 2x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 6.5-1-42-1

Vinay Kumar to Pollard, OUT, Jadeja has pulled off a blinder here!, the end of Pollard, it was a poor delivery from Vinay, a length hit-me delivery, Pollard hits it, but not flat enough to clear the ropes, it goes miles high, and then drops towards the deep extra cover boundary, Ravindra Jadeja runs towards it from long-off, had plenty of ground to make but manages to cover it and latches on to it, tumbling over as he completes the catch, outstanding effort that

KA Pollard c Jadeja b Vinay Kumar 29 (44m 32b 2x4 1x6) SR: 90.62

West Indies 181/5   AD Russell 4* (1b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 6.2-1-20-2
