  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Kumar to Gayle, OUT, taken at second slip! The ball pitched on a good length around middle and seamed across the left-hander, Gayle stayed in his crease and pushed at the ball outside off stump with no footwork. He got a thick edge that flew straight to Vijay at second slip. That catch arrived at waist height, don't get many more straightforward than that in the slips

CH Gayle c Vijay b Kumar 18 (42m 32b 4x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

West Indies 34/1   KOA Powell 16* (29b 2x4 1x6)   B Kumar 5.1-3-5-1

Mohammed Shami to Powell, OUT, caught at mid-off! That's Shami's maiden Test match wicket! He delivered the first bouncer of the day outside off stump and Powell shaped to pull. He had to take that from quite wide outside off stump and he got an edge that lobbed up towards mid-off. Bhuvneshwar did well to run backwards from extra cover and take the catch

KOA Powell c Kumar b Mohammed Shami 28 (58m 40b 5x4 1x6) SR: 70.00

West Indies 47/2   DM Bravo 1* (14b)   Mohammed Shami 4.2-1-18-1

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, OUT, middle stump's been knocked out of the ground! That ball seemed much quicker, it pitched on a length and cut back into the right-hander, a skiddy delivery. Samuels stayed in his crease and tried to drive through cover, leaving a gap between bat and pad. The ball went through it to hit the top of middle stump. Dhoni's drop has cost India only five runs

MN Samuels b Mohammed Shami 65 (102m 98b 11x4 2x6) SR: 66.32

West Indies 138/3   DM Bravo 23* (93b 2x4 1x6)   Mohammed Shami 8.5-1-44-2

Ashwin to Bravo, OUT, disaster for West Indies, Bravo's been run out! Chanderpaul's standing there with his hands on his hips. What on earth was Bravo doing? He nudged the ball off the pads behind square leg and sauntered down the pitch. There was no chance of a single there, Chanderpaul never ran and it was his call since the ball was behind square. Shami got to the ball quickly from short fine leg and by the time Bravo turned around, he had no chance. The throw to Dhoni's end was swift and the third umpire was not even needed.

DM Bravo run out 23 (124m 96b 2x4 1x6) SR: 23.95

West Indies 138/4   S Chanderpaul 0* (1b)   R Ashwin 10.3-7-22-0

Mohammed Shami to Ramdin, OUT, Shami's done it again! The middle stump has been uprooted! He pitched once again on a good length outside off and swung back into the right-hander, Ramdin was cramped for room as he tried to cut and the ball beat the bat to crash into off stump. Looks like Shami's already reversing it, and he's having a splendid debut

D Ramdin b Mohammed Shami 4 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 143/5   S Chanderpaul 1* (2b)   Mohammed Shami 9.2-1-45-3

Ojha to Sammy, OUT, oh Sammy, what have you done! Dhoni had placed a fielder at long-off but Sammy tried to clear him anyway with the lofted shot. The bat turned as the ball made contact and he ended up mis-hitting it straight to Bhuvneshwar. Pretty ordinary shot selection considering the situation, especially with the fielder in the deep.

DJG Sammy c Kumar b Ojha 16 (26m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

West Indies 172/6   S Chanderpaul 14* (15b 2x4)   PP Ojha 14.4-4-42-1

Tendulkar to Shillingford, OUT, lbw! Tendulkar has a wicket and Eden Gardens erupts. That was the ball that goes straight on. The flight was superb and the ball dipped on the right-hander too. Shillingford pushed forward to defend and was hit plumb in front. Tendulkar bowled a googly, bowled a legbreak and then got his man with a straight one. A terrific touch to this Test. That's tea by the way.

S Shillingford lbw b Tendulkar 5 (39m 39b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.82

West Indies 192/7   S Chanderpaul 23* (48b 3x4)   SR Tendulkar 0.4-0-0-1

Ashwin to Permaul, OUT, caught and bowled! Ashwin drew Permaul into the drive with a flighted ball that dipped on the right-hander. Permaul came forward but was beaten in flight and ended up chipping it straight back to the bowler

V Permaul c & b Ashwin 14 (16m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 51.85

West Indies 211/8   S Chanderpaul 28* (53b 3x4)   R Ashwin 18-9-44-1

Ashwin to Chanderpaul, OUT, he's bowled him! Chanderpaul's played down the wrong line and the ball's clipped off stump. It was the quicker ball and it pitched outside off stump and skidded on while kolding its line, Chanderpaul played back and tried to defend. He just missed it.

S Chanderpaul b Ashwin 36 (128m 79b 3x4 0x6) SR: 45.56

West Indies 233/9   TL Best 14* (28b 2x4)   R Ashwin 21-9-52-2

Mohammed Shami to Cottrell, OUT, that's it, all over, Shami's battered the off stump again. Four wickets for him on debut. He swung a full ball into Cottrell, who closed the face and tried to play on the leg side. The ball beat the bat, bounced off the pad and uprooted off stump

SS Cottrell b Mohammed Shami 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 234/10   TL Best 14* (30b 2x4)   Mohammed Shami 17-2-71-4
