West Indies in India ODI Series - 4th ODI

India v West Indies

India won by 153 runs

0.1

Roach to Gambhir, no run, short of a length, just outside off, sees it through to the keeper

0.2

Roach to Gambhir, no run, lenght ball, just outside off, defended with an open face

0.3

Roach to Gambhir, no run, looks to cut but the room is not available, and ends up under-edging it through to the keeper. Could easily have played this on

0.4

Roach to Gambhir, no run, short of a length, closer to off, right behind it, defended to cover

0.5

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, full ball on off, driven to the left of mid-off to get off the mark

0.6

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, full on the pads, Sehwag clips it away to get off the mark himself

India 2/0   KAJ Roach 1-0-2-0

2.1

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, middle and off, Sehwag goes back and pushes this between square leg and midwicket

2.2

Roach to Gambhir, no run, Gambhir looking to force the cut shot again. No room here either, and he can't time the shot

2.3

Roach to Gambhir, no run, a nice effort ball. Digs this one in shorter, and gets extra bounce. Gambhir pulls out of the fend at last moment

2.4

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, length ball on the pads, clipped away fine of long leg where Hyatt does good work to keep them down to one

2.5

Roach to Sehwag, no run, short of a length, just outside off, punched to cover

2.6

Roach to Sehwag, SIX, Upper-cut for a six. Sehwag is looking dangerous. This is dug in short, outside off, and Sehwag arches back to guide this over the slips. In the V behind the stumps it goes, and carries all the way. He has deliberately gone so fine

India 15/0   KAJ Roach 2-0-10-0

4.1

Roach to Sehwag, FOUR, half-volley on the pads, smacked away for a four mercilessly through square leg

4.2

Roach to Sehwag, no run, length ball on off, driven on the up, but can't beat mid-off

4.3

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, there is room outside off, punched away to third man for one

4.4

Roach to Gambhir, FOUR, Gambhir gets away now. This is short, angling away, provides him the width. Gambhir has to get tall to get on the top of the bounce, and places it between point and cover-point

4.5

Roach to Gambhir, FOUR, steered away for four now. Deliberately opens the face to this length ball, and places it between the first and the wide slip

4.6

Roach to Gambhir, no run, full on off, looks to drive, but can't beat cover

India 30/0   KAJ Roach 3-0-23-0

15.1

Roach to Gambhir, FOUR, full, near yorker, outside off, and Gambhir squeezes it with an open face, past point, along the ground

15.2

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, and now Gambhir gets to fifty, dabbing this shortish ball square on the off side. Accepts the loud applause, and the receives a pat on the back from Sehwag

15.3

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, pushed back to Roach, who ricochets it towards mid-on, and Sehwag steals a single

15.4

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, full on off, squeezed out to third man for a single

15.5

Roach to Sehwag, no run, yorker from Roach, full and straight, dug back to him

15.6

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, driven on the up, powerfully too, but long-on is back

India 116/0   KAJ Roach 4-0-31-0

17.1

Roach to Sehwag, FOUR, full toss on the pads, and dealt with accordingly. Deep square leg has no chance here. Sehwag now has more fours than he has sixes

17.2

Roach to Sehwag, FOUR, half-volley on the pads, and the result is the same. Christmas has arrived 17 days too early for him

17.3

Roach to Sehwag, no run, another full toss, but this time on off, and Sehwag can't beat cover-point

17.4

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, slower ball, short of a length, into the pads, worked away for a single to deep square

17.5

Roach to Gambhir, no run, Run-out chance. GG wants a single after leaving the ball on the pitch. Sehwag is not interested. GG has to go back. A charging Roach has to go around Gambhir and is caught in a bit of a tangle. Can't field the ball, otherwise GG was struggling. Sammy appeals for obstruction of the field. A very polite, hope-against-hope query. Replays show that Gambhir did alter his course a little, by a foot maybe. Hard to tell, but the umpires not interested anyway

17.6

Roach to Gambhir, no run, looks to run this behind square, but can't beat point

India 132/0   KAJ Roach 5-0-40-0

19.1

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, full toss, just outside off, gets only the single to third man

19.2

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, another run-out opportunity. Full, on the pads, clipped to the left of deep square. Seems like the two is no, but Gambhir turns it down. Sehwag has to put in a dive to get back in. I am not sure I have ever seen Sehwag dive into the crease

19.3

Roach to Gambhir, FOUR, this is why GG wanted to stay on the strike perhaps. Gets a length ball into the pads, and deflects it wide of fine leg for four

19.4

Roach to Gambhir, no run, looks to push this with an open face, can't beat the ring

19.5

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, steered away to third man for a single

19.6

Roach to Sehwag, no run, short and wide, looks to run this down to third man, is beaten by the extra bounce

India 149/0   KAJ Roach 6-0-47-0

38.1

Roach to Raina, 1 run, length ball on the pads, bunts this to midwicket, dives full length for a single

38.2

Roach to Sehwag, no run, full toss on the pads, but finds midwicket

38.3

Roach to Sehwag, no run, another full toss, another flick, another stop at midwicket. Two dots in a row

38.4

Roach to Sehwag, no run, well bowled, fires in a yorker down the leg side, Sehwag's bat goes up high, but doesn't come down ever. The ball hits the heel and goes to the fine leg fence. Tony Hill is alert and doesn't allow leg-byes. No shot is offered here

38.5

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, driven down to long-on for one

38.6

Roach to Raina, FOUR, this one had a shot offered all right. Yorker outside off, Raina goes low, and opens the face, squeezing it past the keeper. Third man has no way to get around. This outfield is too quick

India 299/1   KAJ Roach 7-0-53-0

40.1

Roach to Raina, FOUR, poor fielding. Hit powerfully but straight to backward point where Simmons doesn't get his body behind it, and allows it to squeeze through his legs

40.2

Roach to Raina, 1 run, OUT, 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

SK Raina run out 55 (76m 44b 6x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

40.3

Roach to Jadeja, 1 run, starts with a thick edge to third man for a single

40.4

Roach to Sehwag, FOUR, lovely batting. He has run two men out today, but if he keeps doing this there is no risk. A low full toss, just outside off, and he has opened the face and somehow found the timing to send it for four past point

40.5

Roach to Sehwag, 1 run, driven to long-on now, reaches 187, Australia's number of devil

40.6

Roach to Jadeja, 1 run, opens the face on this length ball, gets a single, keeps the strike

India 323/2   KAJ Roach 8-0-65-0

47.1

Roach to RG Sharma, 1 run, full on off, driven to deep point for a single

47.2

Roach to Kohli, 1 run, full outside off again, hit to extra cover for a single

47.3

Roach to RG Sharma, FOUR, West Indies can do without juicy full tosses. Sharma easily lofts it over mid-off for another boundary. Four hundred is the next landmark

47.4

Roach to RG Sharma, FOUR, Sharma goes inside-out again, but ends up slicing this wide of point. Wide enough to send it for another four

47.5

Roach to RG Sharma, 2 runs, full and straight, looking to cramp him up, Sharma makes room and drives it past cover, comes back for two

47.6

Roach to RG Sharma, OUT, 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

RG Sharma b Roach 27 (21m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 168.75

India 393/5   KAJ Roach 9-0-77-1

49.1

Roach to Patel, 1 run, full outside off, driven to long-off for one

49.2

Roach to Kohli, 2 runs, full toss on the pads, driven wide of deep midwicket, and they come back for a second

49.3

Roach to Kohli, 1 run, full toss on the stumps, driven down to long-on for a single. Misses out on this one

49.4

Roach to Patel, 1 run, yorker on middle and leg, squeezes it out for a single

49.5

Roach to Kohli, 2 runs, full on the pads, flicked away between long-on and deep midwicket, comes back for two

49.6

Roach to Kohli, FOUR, fittingly West Indies end the innings with a full toss to sum up their effort. Kohli sums India's effort up by driving it wide of extra cover for a four. That brings up India's highest score in ODIs too

India 418/5   KAJ Roach 10-0-88-1
