14,15,16 November 2013 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
7.1

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, short ball at 146 kph! Look at that! And it was right over the middle stump as well. What a welcome to Bravo, but he is up to it, ducking beneath the line of the ball

7.2

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, 138 kph, muted appeal as the in-swinging, full length beats the bat as he looks to clip it away to leg and gets struck on the front pad. He was on the back foot, but it would have slid down leg

7.3

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, 139 kph, shortish on middle and leg and he rises to his full length to get back behind it

7.4

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, FOUR, excellent way to get off the mark. Ample timing there from Bravo as he uses the pace of the bowler to work him behind square leg with the minimum of effort

7.5

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, oh, goes on the first bounce to R Ashwin at first slip! A lovely delivery, shaping away after pitching on a full length on off stump. He had to play at that and the ball shaves the outside edge but drops short of the fielder

7.6

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, exploits the same angle, but this one is a little shorter than before and the batsman has an easier time learning from his mistake as he lets this go

West Indies 31/1   DM Bravo 4* (6b 1x4)
9.1

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, on a full length, using the angle across the left-hander, who isn't interested in it

9.2

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, blocked to gully with an open face. Just back of a good length as he forces the batsman into his crease.

9.3

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, 1 run, on the pads this time. India have been a little generous with that ball, I think, possibly in search for the in-swinger. The batsman tucks it away to long leg

West Indies 32/1   DM Bravo 5* (9b 1x4)
10.1

Kumar to Bravo, no run, another appeal from the Indians, but this was off the pad. Dhoni was leaping full length down the leg side, parallel to the ground, and was the first to go up. But the full-length inswinger on the pads had nothing to do with the bat

10.2

Kumar to Bravo, 2 leg byes, back of a length on the pads again and Bravo was looking to tuck it behind square on the leg side. He doesn't get bat to it, but the ball brushes his thigh pad and runs away to the boundary

10.3

Kumar to Bravo, no run, returns to the staple line outside off stump and gets a lot of away swing in the process as the ball is left to the keeper

10.4

Kumar to Bravo, no run, full and swinging away, Bravo is happy to let it go again

10.5

Kumar to Bravo, no run, he should get just a little closer to the stumps, but I guess when he does he strays down leg. This one was full and started outside off and kept on moving away

10.6

Kumar to Bravo, no run, and just as I thought, his attempt to get closer to the stumps ends up being on the pads of the batsman, enough to flick it as it goes to Dhoni behind the stumps

West Indies 38/1   DM Bravo 5* (15b 1x4)
11.3

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, beaten once more, the ball snakes away just a touch, back of a length once more, past the outside edge once more

11.4

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, FOUR, length ball angling across, Bravo had to reach out for that a bit but that is gracefully driven through covers for four, cue Lara talk

11.5

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, short of length and outside off, shoulders arms

11.6

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, fuller this time, just outside off, Bravo happy to leave it to the keeper

West Indies 43/1   DM Bravo 9* (19b 2x4)
12.4

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, length ball is blocked watchfully, ball drops dead at the batsman's feet

12.5

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, a touch short, quickly onto the backfoot, stabs that towards point

12.6

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, nicely bowled by Ashwin, flights that and spins across, defended towards the off side

West Indies 44/1   DM Bravo 9* (22b 2x4)
13.6

Mohammed Shami to Bravo, no run, short of length ball outside off, left alone, time for drinks

West Indies 45/1   DM Bravo 9* (23b 2x4)
14.5

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, goes on with the arm, and the batsman stays back to quickly block

14.6

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, 80 kph, flighted ball around off stump and it is met at its pitch with a drive to cover

West Indies 46/1   DM Bravo 9* (25b 2x4)
15.3

Kumar to Bravo, no run, angles it across the left-hander and there is good swing away from the bat, which of course is safely stowed away above the batsman's head as he leaves

15.4

Kumar to Bravo, no run, another full length ball, more out swing, the batsman leaves again

15.5

Kumar to Bravo, no run, bounces short of second slip this time. M Vijay was going down on one knee to try and get his hands underneath Bravo's edge off the full length outswinger, but you can't catch it off one-bounce

15.6

Kumar to Bravo, no run, oh, a lovely ball to end the over. This time the away swinger is pitched around middle and off, the perfect line and the batsman does well too as he watches it pass to the keeper

West Indies 47/1   DM Bravo 9* (29b 2x4)
16.2

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, 85 kph, a little shorter and he goes quickly back to cut straight to point

16.3

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, tossed up at 85.1 kph, and he comes forward and defends

16.4

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, good length ball on middle and turning to off as he goes back to block

16.5

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, appreciable flight again and this time it gets the batsman to drive. The ball would have gone in the air towards the covers had it not been for Pujara stationed close-in on the off side, who was struck as he looked to take evasive action

16.6

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, pushed through quicker and the batsman gets behind it just in time to push it down the ground

West Indies 48/1   DM Bravo 9* (34b 2x4)
17.4

Kumar to Bravo, no run, loud appeal for leg before as the batsman fails to offer a shot. There was a bit of inswing as well which the batsman had not counted on. The impact was a little high though, and so it is judged by umpire Kettleborough

17.5

Kumar to Bravo, no run, oh, that has to be close! Has to be, but Kettleborough is unmoved again. It was fuller than the last one, but the batsman was outside his crease and it was striking him on the knee-roll as well. So looks like its an excellent decision in the end

17.6

Kumar to Bravo, no run, swings away after pitching on a length on off stump. The batsman leaves

West Indies 49/1   DM Bravo 9* (37b 2x4)
18.2

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, flighted on off again and it is defended easily

18.3

Ashwin to Bravo, SIX, Oh, that was impressive. He got to the pitch of the ball with a giant stride forward, and with that whirling backlift, whacks it inside out over cover. Magnificent shot

18.4

Ashwin to Bravo, FOUR, its a two-for-one deal. This was held back a little but that did not stop Bravo essaying a strong square drive which pierces the infield. Delicious strikes

18.5

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, flighted on off stump and this is defended carefully

18.6

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, good end to the over as he directs a full length ball on off which is blocked

West Indies 60/1   DM Bravo 19* (42b 3x4 1x6)
20.1

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, tossed up on middle and leg and turning away as he gets behind it and blocks

20.2

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, full length ball outside off driven to the covers

20.3

Ashwin to Bravo, FOUR, turn on offer, but gully has been moved. Would have gone straight down his throat as Bravo goes for an extravagant cover drive and gets a thick outside edge

20.4

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, flighted on middle again as he steps forward and keeps it out

20.5

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, holy moly, would you look at the bounce on that! Dhoni had to take it near his chest as the ball turns right across the batsman who was plodding forward with a defensive bat

20.6

Ashwin to Bravo, 1 run, tossed up on off stump and it is pushed through the covers for a single

West Indies 69/1   DM Bravo 24* (48b 4x4 1x6)
21.1

Kumar to Bravo, no run, 131 kph, full length swinging away, this is where Bhuvi has to be even though the batsman refuses to be drawn into a stroke

21.2

Kumar to Bravo, no run, oh, but he doesn't stay there long. This was down the leg side and the batsman is disciplined enough not to play again

21.3

Kumar to Bravo, no run, better, returns to an off stump line and the batsman is wary of the swing he is getting and lets it go

21.4

Kumar to Bravo, 1 run, on middle and leg and Bravo tucks it away through midwicket for a single

21.6

Kumar to Bravo, FOUR, french cut for four! Now that is where you pitch and in swinger, but Bhuvi has not had luck going his way. First he had a catch dropped and now he has to watch the back of a length ball which seams into the batsman very late, who looks quite awkward as he looked to defend

West Indies 77/1   DM Bravo 29* (53b 5x4 1x6)
22.3

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, pitches on middle and turns away, Bravo is brave enough to let it go to the keeper

22.4

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, tossed up on off stump and it is blocked with a straight bat

22.5

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, ample turn now for Ashwin as Dhoni has to reach out to his right to collect this full lenght ball outside off. The batsman leaves it alone

22.6

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, flatter and quicker as this ball carries on with the arm as Bravo goes back and blocks

West Indies 84/1   DM Bravo 29* (57b 5x4 1x6)
23.3

Kumar to Bravo, no run, full and on the pads this time, and the batsman cannot get it away past midwicket

23.4

Kumar to Bravo, no run, 135 kph bouncer, but the batsman is quick to duck beneath

23.5

Kumar to Bravo, no run, angles across the left-hander who is still not tempted to play considering it was going well wide of off stump

23.6

Kumar to Bravo, no run, gets back behind that full length ball, and though he was playing from the crease, used a straight bat

West Indies 85/1   DM Bravo 29* (61b 5x4 1x6)
24.3

Ashwin to Bravo, no run, 85.2kph, flighted on middle and off as he steps forward and keeps it out

24.4

Ashwin to Bravo, OUT, he walks! Big outside edge as Dhoni leaps off his feet after collecting a good, sharp catch. It was tossed up on leg stump, so he had to play at that. But this time there was turn and bounce and Bravo's cheery little innings comes to a close

DM Bravo c †Dhoni b Ashwin 29 (78m 63b 5x4 1x6) SR: 46.03

West Indies 86/2   DM Bravo 29 (63b 5x4 1x6)
