West Indies in India ODI Series - 5th ODI

India v West Indies

India won by 34 runs

0.1

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, aha, slowness already. Gambhir is looking to dab it for a single, but the ball arives late and takes the inside edge. It hits the pad, and they still take the single even as the ball doesn't even roll off the pitch

0.2

Roach to Rahane, OUT, Rahane gets a golden duck on return to international cricket. This time it's the lack of bounce. Short of a length, starts outside off, sneaks under his defence, and hits him midway between shin and knee. Dead plumb, as this is moving in from outside off and hitting middle

AM Rahane lbw b Roach 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.3

Roach to Patel, OUT, Slowness and lowness. Chennai is up to it again. Roach on a hat-trick. Patel is looking to dab it for the single that gets him off the mark. It's short of a length, angling away. Patel is early into the shot, and the ball stays low for good measure. The inside edge is taken, and the stumps are disturbed

PA Patel b Roach 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.4

Roach to Tiwary, no run, he stays short of a length and straight, but Tiwary is well forward to counter any low bounce, and defends solidly

0.5

Roach to Tiwary, 1 run, Tiwary is frozen. This is dug in short, and he is slow to react. He half-ducks, hoping it bounces over, but this pitch doesn't have that much bounce. The ball hits the gloves, and lobs up for a single to leg

0.6

Roach to Gambhir, no run, short of a length, angling across, pushed to point

India 2/2   KAJ Roach 1-0-2-2

2.2

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, angling away, steered away to third man for one

2.3

Roach to Tiwary, no run, short of a length, just outside off, Tiwary is behind it in defence

2.4

Roach to Tiwary, 1 run, pushed away from the body, to the left of Pollard at point who seems to have hurt his left hand while diving

2.5

Roach to Gambhir, no run, digs this half way, gets it to bounce only rib high. Well down the leg side, beating his attempt at a weakish shot. Not called a wide because Tony Hill thinks it has touched the arm sleeve on the way

2.6

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, into the body, tucked away for a single past square leg

India 11/2   KAJ Roach 2-0-6-2

4.1

Roach to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, on the pads, tucked away for an easy single

4.2

Roach to Tiwary, 1 run, short of a length, holds its line around off, squares him up a touch, and the thick edge goes past the two slips

4.3

Roach to Gambhir, no run, length ball, around off, pushed to cover, no single available

4.4

Roach to Gambhir, no run, appeal for lbw as this length ball hits him in front of stumps. Since there is no swing, this can't have pitched inside the line of the stumps

Roach to Gambhir, no run, short of a length, on the pads, can't beat the man at square leg

4.6

4.6

Roach to Gambhir, no run, slower ball, and Gambhir doesn't even get a touch on it because this has scooted along the ground. Bounces three times before reaching the keeper

India 19/2   KAJ Roach 3-0-11-2

6.1

Roach to Gambhir, FOUR, first four for Gambhir, second of the innings. It's a length ball outside off, he stays in the crease, and drives it between cover and extra cover

6.2

Roach to Gambhir, FOUR, speaking of value for shots, this one gets some value because of the pace on it. It's a full toss outside off, takes the outside edge, bounces between the stumps and keeper, and beats Ramdin to his left

6.3

Roach to Gambhir, no run, length ball outside off, driven to cover

6.4

Roach to Gambhir, (no ball) 1 run, full, near yorker, into the pads, Gambhir digs it out for a single. Second no-ball from Roach

6.4

6.5

Roach to Tiwary, no run, full outside off, driven to point where Martin fields. Not sure if Pollard is back on the field
