West Indies in India ODI Series - 4th ODI

India v West Indies

India won by 153 runs

20.1

Pollard to Gambhir, 1 run, length ball around off, steers this down to third man, brings up the 150 of the stand

20.2

Pollard to Sehwag, SIX, This is high ball and long ball at the same time. Length ball, middle and leg, and he has hit it high enough to bring down rain, but it has also cleared long-on with ease

20.3

Pollard to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, extra bounce, hits him in the rib area, goes for a leg-bye

20.4

Pollard to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, into the pads, worked away for a single

20.5

Pollard to Sehwag, FOUR, into the hips again, but this time Sehwag gets bat on it, glancing it wide of the keeper and fine of fine leg

20.6

Pollard to Sehwag, 1 run, this shortish delivery stays low, but Sehwag has punched it down to long-on without trouble

India 163/0   KA Pollard 1-0-14-0

22.1

Pollard to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, on off, pushed with an open face, gets a single

22.2

22.3

Pollard to Gambhir, 1 run, tucked away off the hip for a single, Sehwag back on strike

22.4

Pollard to Sehwag, FOUR, short, wide, smoked away over point. The fielder has got a finger to it, and I am surprised the finger is in tact. Sehwag's bat is in his left hand, raised high above his head. The crowd on its feet. The gallery too. Sehwag takes his time to soak in the applause

22.5

Pollard to Sehwag, OUT, Gambhir is gone. Good work by Samuels at straight extra cover. Sehwag punches this down the track, thinks he can get an easy single to long-ff, to which GG responds too. But Samuels act fast and intercepts. Sehwag now sends Gambhir back. The bowler hasn't yet come back to the stumps, so Samuels needs a direct hit. He produces one

G Gambhir run out 67 (100m 67b 11x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

22.6

Pollard to Sehwag, no run, tries the pull, but the ball is not short enough, and he finds midwicket. On the bounce

42.3

Pollard to Jadeja, 1 run, length ball on off, pushed to extra cover, and they go at Sehwag's end again, and he has to run hard to make it

42.4

Pollard to Sehwag, FOUR, ... but there are other gifts available. A juicy full toss outside leg, and he helps it along over short fine. 8000 runs for Sehwag. One hit short of a double century

42.5

Pollard to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, on the pads, worked away for a single. Now only one man stand ahead of him. SRT

Pollard to RG Sharma, 1 run, short of a length, on off, dabbed away for a single

44.5

Pollard to Sehwag, 1 run, plays the pick-up shot off the pads, but doesn't quite time it. Gets it right enough of deep square to survive, though

44.6

Pollard to RG Sharma, 1 run, Sharma gives him the charge, Pollard follows him down leg, the fine leg is up, and has to dive to keep them down to one. Has injured his knee in the process

India 360/3   KA Pollard 5-0-41-0

46.1

Pollard to RG Sharma, 1 run, Pollard continues bowling the slower ones, is hit to long-on for a single

46.2

Pollard to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag really doesn't need these gifts I tell you, but if you keep serving them up, he will keep smacking them. Short, outside leg, nothing behind the delivery, and guides it to the right of short fine leg. Hundred runs in fours alone

46.3

Pollard to Sehwag, OUT, He is gone. He hasn't batted 50 overs till, but look at that score. Sehwag has mis-hit this attempt at hitting a six over long-off. Ends up skying this to Martin at long-off. Almost every West Indian has come up to shake his hand before he walks off. Rohit congratulates him too. And just before he crosses the fence, Sehwag looks back and raises his bat for the crowd. Lovely response from them

48.3

Pollard to Kohli, FOUR, one slower ball too many. Kohli is waiting for it this time, and lofts it wide of long-on. The massacre continues

48.4

Pollard to Kohli, 1 wide, short and wide, too wide, and India's 400 comes up. Kohli, though, has overbalanced trying to cut this, and Ramdin - standing up - has attempted a stumping. The replays show he is fine. India's fourth 400. The next bext is two times

48.4

Pollard to Kohli, 1 wide, Kohli gives him the charge and is beaten by a slower ball well outside off

48.4
