AT: "This is the 4th or 5th incorrect decision by Mr. Llong. How is that out ? Even at normal speed, there is no way he could've seen that going on to the stumps. Samuels is extremely unfortunate. Wondering why ICC still has no measures taken against umpires who make several blatant mistakes that can change the course of the game."

32.6

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, bowled full on off stump, Bravo defends on the front foot and the umpire says it's time for tea

1.40 pm West Indies still trail by 107 runs and have only seven wickets in hand. The ball is turning for the spinners (apologies for forgetting the 'p' earlier!) and reversing for Shami. Batting is going to be a test after the break. I'll be back in 15 minutes but in the meantime you should watch Match Point, our live video analysis with Sanjay Manjrekar.

Meanwhile, I've just been told by someone at Eden Gardens that the CAB is about to release 199 bunches of balloons from all across the ground as part of the Tendulkar celebration. The balloon bunches will have a Tendulkar mask hanging below.

35.6

Mohammed Shami to Ramdin, 1 leg bye, a loud appeal for lbw as the ball reverses into the right-hander and hits the pad after Ramdin is caught on the crease. It looked closer than the lbw Samuels got but this time umpire Llong says not out. That would have gone down leg side too.

The ball pitched on a length outside off stump and jagged back viciously into the right-hander, Sammy was caught on the crease as he tried to defend and was beaten between bat and body. That ball kept a bit low too, considering the length it pitched, and skidded on to uproot middle stump

48.5

Mohammed Shami to Permaul, OUT, that's swung on to the boot, a full and reverse-swinging delivery, and the Indians love it, they are up in arms over the lbw appeal but the umpire says not out. That's a very close shout indeed. But has Permaul been run out? He was dozy in getting back to the crease, he was looking at the umpire having taken a couple of steps out, waiting for the lbw decision. Dhoni was appealing but he was alert enough to spot Permaul out of his ground and his underarm throw hit the stumps direct
