West Indies in India Test Series - 2nd Test

India v West Indies

India won by an innings and 126 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.1

Kumar to Gayle, 1 run, a full inswinger and the ball is clipped away and look who fields it, the ball is already following Sachin as he collects it safely at wide mid-on

West Indies 1/0   CH Gayle 1* (1b)

1.1

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, lazy shot from Gayle. He pokes at that full length ball angled across him and cannot put bat to ball

1.2

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, 1 run, keeps it nice and full as Gayle pushes it off the front foot into the covers

1.6

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, left alone to end the over. Full and swinging away and Gayle wanted absolutely nothing to do with that

West Indies 5/0   CH Gayle 2* (4b)

3.1

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, big appeal for lbw, Shami is convinced but then bowlers usually are, Gayle goes well back in the crease as he looks to defend that, but he is struck high on the pad, height might be the problem there, though the TV commentators suggest there is an inside-edge, looked pad-first to me though

3.2

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, left alone outside off

3.3

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, FOUR, utterly effortlessly done by Gayle, no foot work, just makes sure he makes superb contact with the ball angling across him, pushed through extra cover for four

3.4

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, doesn't seem very keen to get forward here, stays in the crease and blocks this short of length delivery

3.5

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, 1 run, short of length ball, 139kph, on the pads, worked away towards backward square leg

West Indies 14/0   CH Gayle 7* (9b 1x4)

4.1

Kumar to Gayle, no run, another lbw appeal as Gayle decides against offering a shot , a short of length ball that jags in, Gayle was well out of the crease there, and it struck him well above the knee roll, not out as the umpire rightly judges

4.2

Kumar to Gayle, 4 leg byes, slides this in towards the pads, Gayle looks to glances that towards fine leg, can't get bat on it but it doesn't matter, off the pads for four leg byes

4.3

Kumar to Gayle, 2 runs, Gayle striding down the track to counter the movement

4.4

Kumar to Gayle, 1 run, length ball on the pads from over the wicket this time, defended to the leg side and a quick single is taken, not often you see that when Gayle is in the middle, especially in a Test match

West Indies 21/0   CH Gayle 10* (13b 1x4)

5.2

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, big away swinger, but it started a little too far outside off to incite the batsman into a shot

5.3

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, 1 run, tucks him up this time with a back of a length delivery, wanting the batsman to play and play Gayle does, working it off his hips to long leg

5.5

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, no run, struck just above the knee and he's hurt! Struck him right at that one little point where there is no protection - just above the pad and just below the thigh pad. Gayle clutches his right leg as the length ball on leg stump beats his intended clip to midwicket

5.6

Mohammed Shami to Gayle, OUT, caught at gully, and Shami's dream run continues. West Indies' big man is gone. It was back of a length, tucked him up for room. There was a little away movement and Gayle poked at it, with very little feet, got the shoulder of the bat and the ball lobbed to the left of gully where Rohit picks up a smart catch

CH Gayle c Sharma b Mohammed Shami 11 (24m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 64.70

West Indies 25/1   CH Gayle 11 (17b 1x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
