West Indies in India ODI Series - 4th ODI

India v West Indies

India won by 153 runs

6.1

Russell to Gambhir, FOUR, a poor start, full and straight, Gambhir stays in his crease and flicks the ball off his pads through midwicket

6.2

Russell to Gambhir, no run, Gambhir gets beaten after stepping out of his crease, making room by moving towards leg and trying to hit through the off

6.3

Russell to Gambhir, no run, good length and straight, defended on the leg side

6.4

Russell to Gambhir, no run, dropped! Gambhir pushed with hard hands at a length ball - it wasn't full enough to try and drive - the ball flew back at Russell, towards his left, and he couldn't catch it even though he got both hands to it

6.5

Russell to Gambhir, no run, defended on the off side

6.6

Russell to Gambhir, FOUR, too easy, a full toss outside off stump, Gambhir simply places it through cover and the ball flies off his bat

India 45/0   AD Russell 1-0-8-0

8.1

Russell to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, guided behind square for a single

8.2

Russell to Sehwag, FOUR, Rampaul has just finished an over, and is slightly lazy to come down on this one. Sehwag has glanced this length ball to short fine leg, where Rampaul lets it through

8.3

Russell to Sehwag, no run, driven on the up, powerfully too, but can't beat mid-on

16.1

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, low full toss on middle and leg, driven to long-on for one

16.2

Russell to Gambhir, 1 run, driven nicely but not too far to the right of Sammy at cover. A fumble allows them the single

16.3

Russell to Sehwag, no run, good yorker, Sehwag has made the room but can't do anything with the length

16.4

Russell to Sehwag, FOUR, That's like hitting a spinner. This is bowled at 135ks, on a length, on middle and leg, in order to cramp him up. Sehwag charges at him, takes it on the half-volley, and makes room too to go over extra cover

16.5

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length and slower, and Sehwag rocks back and makes room to cut this to third man for one

16.6

Russell to Gambhir, no run, another slower ball, this one beats Gambhir's attempt to run it down to third man

India 123/0   AD Russell 3-0-23-0

18.1

Russell to Sehwag, no run, Sehwag looks to make room here, but this full ball swings further away and beats the edge

Russell to Sehwag, no run, short of a length, on the stumps, defended back

18.3

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, queezes this full delivery out for a single

18.4

Russell to Gambhir, FOUR, no quick single for GG this time. He takes a length ball and lofts it over mid-on. Easy does it

18.5

Russell to Gambhir, 1 run, drops this at his fee, towards cover, and takes a quick single

18.6

Russell to Sehwag, FOUR, full, away-swinging delivery. Nearly a yorker, but it provides him width, and Sehwag squeezes it to the left of point and well to the right of third man

India 142/0   AD Russell 4-0-33-0

34.1

Russell to Raina, 2 runs, Rains slogs at him right away, and finds the gap between long-on and deep square even though this is a mis-hit

34.2

Russell to Raina, no run, wide of the crease, angling in, pushed to midwicket

34.3

Russell to Raina, FOUR, mid-on is up in the circle, and Raina has exploited it. Russell is angling this in from some angle, allowing Raina to swing freely. He goes with the angle, and clears mid-on easily

34.4

Russell to Raina, no run, pace and bounce here, as Raina looks to late-cut this and is beaten

34.5

Russell to Raina, 1 run, short of a length, slower ball, on off, pushed to cover for one

34.6

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, on the stumps, Sehwag makes room, pushes this to the right of point for one

India 263/1   AD Russell 5-0-41-0

36.1

Russell to Sehwag, no run, driven on the up, can't beat extra cover

36.2

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, low full toss from wide of the crease, driven to long-on for one

36.3

Russell to Raina, 1 run, length ball outside off, driven inside-out, but the extra cover is on the fence

36.4

Russell to Sehwag, no run, slight low bounce on this short delivery angling in. Hits him on the pad, but is headed down leg

36.5

Russell to Sehwag, SIX, this one bounces well and truly, and Sehwag well and truly pulls it for six. Over midwicket he goes into the tobacco-sponsored boundary boards. It might be the chewing tobacco, but Sehwag is smoking them here. Who cares about the health department regulations?

36.6

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, gets just the single this time, to deep square leg, but retains strike. Not short enough to be pulling

India 285/1   AD Russell 6-0-50-0

43.1

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, crowd goes wild as Sehwag late-cuts this, but he can't beat the diving man at point, and gets just a single

43.2

Russell to Jadeja, OUT, and finally a catch has been taken. Jadeja plays an ungainly flick-pull to a slower short ball that has cramped it up. The ball is dying on the midwicket, but Rampaul runs in and takes it low

RA Jadeja c Rampaul b Russell 10 (14m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

43.3

Russell to Sehwag, FOUR, There it is. Sehwag is the second man to reach a double-century in ODIs. A man has run onto the field with flowers for Viru. He cuts this past point, to the right of third man. No chance for the diving man. He punches the air in delight. Pure delight. Hugs Rohit Sharma. Then takes his time to acknowledge all sections of the crowd. Removes the helmet. Casts a glance at the sky. Pure delight. Tendulkar is somewhere in a Singapore Airlines flight. Or he might have just reached Australia. His record is no more

43.4

Russell to Sehwag, 1 run, low full toss, hits it to long-off for one

43.5

Russell to RG Sharma, 1 run, length ball on off, pushed wide of extra cover for a single

43.6

Russell to Sehwag, SIX, Whoa. Sehwag hits another gear. Upper-cuts this for a six. Square, and not fine. So he has imparted some power on it too. That's 134 runs in boundaries. 22 behind Watson's record of 150

India 353/3   AD Russell 7-0-63-1
