West Indies 44/1   R Ashwin 1-0-1-0

14.1

Ashwin to Powell, no run, speared into the pads, the quicker pace making the batsman miss it as the ball runs off the pad into the leg side

14.2

14.3

Ashwin to Powell, no run, a little slower and a little more flight as the batsman comes forward and blocks

14.4

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

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

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

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   R Ashwin 5-0-19-0

22.1

Ashwin to Powell, SIX, oh, effortlessly hoisted. He came down the track, got to the pitch of the ball and simply lifted it over the head of mid-on and it sailed away.

22.2

Ashwin to Powell, 1 run

22.3

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   R Ashwin 6-0-26-0

Ashwin to Powell, no run, not as much turn as the last over, as he pitches it outside leg at a good length and it strikes him on the thigh pad

24.2

Ashwin to Powell, 1 run, uses his feet to meet the pitch of the ball and just chips it over the top to long-off

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

24.5

Ashwin to Samuels, no run, flighted on middle and off as he goes right forward to block

24.6

Ashwin to Samuels, no run, leaps off the shoulder of the bat past where silly point would have been, but M Vijay, despite having made good ground can't reach it. Could have been two in the over as that ball bounced viciously. it was on a fullish length, but Samuels was completely taken aback as he moved back to defend

West Indies 86/2   R Ashwin 7-0-27-1

26.1

Ashwin to Powell, 1 run, worked away with a closed face of the bat as short leg fields the ball, which was bowled on a good length on middle

Ashwin to Samuels, no run, tossed up outside off and turning in but it started outside off and was safely left alone

26.3

Ashwin to Samuels, no run

26.4

Ashwin to Samuels, no run, loud shout for leg before as the ball was pitched just outside off strikes him in line, but Samuels had a giant stride forward and that would have sailed over the stumps

26.5

Ashwin to Samuels, 1 leg bye, and that was a similar ball as Samuels looked to defend but the ball turns more than he expects and lobs off his front pad towards fine leg

26.6

Ashwin to Powell, FOUR, way too full to sweep, but he somehow manages to get underneath that and get enough power to slam it to the square leg boundary

West Indies 93/2   R Ashwin 8-0-32-1

42.1

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, tucks the flighted ball past short leg and wants a single, but Chanders once again sends him back. Rightly.

42.2

Ashwin to Deonarine, 1 run, flighted outside off again and it is pushed down the ground and this time there is a single

42.3

Ashwin to Chanderpaul, no run, tries to whip it into the on side but cannot get the length ball darting into him away

42.5

Ashwin to Chanderpaul, no run, tossed up on middle and off and it is safely pushed back to the bowler

42.6

Ashwin to Chanderpaul, no run, a little turn and more than a little bounce, but with the line being outside off, the batsman is quite safe in leaving it

West Indies 143/4   R Ashwin 9-0-33-1

44.1

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, 88 kph, flighted on leg stump as he comes forward in an attempt to smother the spin to defend

44.2

44.3

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run

44.4

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, lots of revs on that ball and it shows as it pitches and turns away. The batsman was gingerly prodding forward to defend

44.5

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, holds it back a little as this one goes along with the arm, as he goes back and blocks

44.6

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, oh dear, has he dropped that? Another ball angled into the left-hander which turns away and the edge is taken which goes towards gully. Kohli dives, but can't hold on and by his disappointed reaction it seems to be a chance. And it was definitely a chance as the ball came in around stomach-high

West Indies 152/5   R Ashwin 10-0-37-1

46.1

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, 85.3 kph nicely tossed up and is equally well defended off the front foot

46.2

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, loads slower this time, 79 kph and that almost tempted the batsman as he wound up, but then checked his shot into a forward defense

46.4

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, keeps it nice and full and Ramdin responds with a straight bat

46.5

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, this one was a little on the pads and he turns it away to short leg

46.6

West Indies 153/5   R Ashwin 11-1-37-1

48.1

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, pushed at 90 kph on the pads, it strikes the outside half of the front set and trickles away towards square leg

48.2

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, 85 kph, full enough to be called almost a yorker as he keeps his pads away from the line of it and digs it out

48.3

Ashwin to Deonarine, no run, slower and more flighted this time as he comes forward and blocks safely

48.4

Ashwin to Deonarine, OUT, Oh, Vijay you beauty. That is an excellent catch to give Ashwin has his 99th wicket. There was some bounce again in this delivery, pitching on middle and turning away. He plods forward but played at it with hard hands, as the edge flies to gully. Vijay dives to his left and grabs a good 'un

N Deonarine c Vijay b Ashwin 21 (34m 24b 1x4 1x6) SR: 87.50

48.5

Ashwin to Sammy, no run, turn again, 82 kph and Sammy was uncertain there. He was looking to defend, but it spins past his bat, takes the glove and a bit of the pad to go past the short leg

48.6

Ashwin to Sammy, OUT, but now he's gone! Horrible shot as he goes for a wild slog and the West Indies captain goes as soon as he came. It was a simple off spinner, pitching on middle and turning only a bit. But playing across the line, he gets a leading edge that went straight in the air and Rohit Sharma settles under it to give Ashwin his 100th Test wicket, the fifth quickest to the mark

DJG Sammy c Sharma b Ashwin 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 162/7   R Ashwin 12-2-37-3

50.1

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, square turn, well nearly. It was a length ball outside off stump and the batsman waited for it to do its bit and pushes it down to mid-on

50.2

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, tossed up a little slower, as he pushes it down the pitch

50.3

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, gives it some air again and forces the batsman to invest in a forward defensive

50.4

Ashwin to Ramdin, 2 runs, tucked away behind square on the leg side as he rides the turn of the length ball bowled around off stump and ended up on leg

50.5

Ashwin to Ramdin, 4 byes, quick, sharp turn and it was bowled at a fullish length too. The batsman who was already looking to cut the ball after making some room for himself misses it and so does Dhoni

50.6

Ashwin to Ramdin, FOUR, oh another catch at the slips is dropped. Vijay is the culprit this time as the tossed up ball on off stump doesn't turn in as Ramdin expected. IThere was some bounce on offer again and a regulation edge goes to first slip, which is fumbled

West Indies 172/8   R Ashwin 13-2-43-3

52.1

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, 76 kph, flighted on off stump as the batsman goes forward and pushes towards mid-on

52.2

Ashwin to Ramdin, 1 run, waits for the ball to spin into him and tucks it away to long leg for a single

52.3

Ashwin to Gabriel, 4 byes, 75 kph, and that goes 180 degrees away from where he intended it to go. He was looking for drive through mid-off but the ball squirts away off the inside edge and to the fine leg boundary

52.4

Ashwin to Gabriel, no run, full on off and is defended off the middle this time

52.5

Ashwin to Gabriel, no run, 80 kph, he's slowed down considerably here as the ball turns sharply into his forward defense

52.6

Ashwin to Gabriel, no run, oh my God, how did that miss?! It was so very full and beat the batsman completely with the dip it got, and yet the ball turned too far down the leg side to hit the stumps

West Indies 177/9   R Ashwin 14-2-44-3

54.1

Ashwin to Gabriel, no run, carrom ball and Gabriel has no clue. Plonks his front foot forward and looks to defend, but is nowhere near it

54.2

Ashwin to Gabriel, no run, misses the stumps again! And by only the smallest of whiskers. Slower and tossed up nicely, the batsman's drive does not account for the amount of turn on offer as it sneaks between bat and pad and goes a millimemet above the leg bail

54.3

Ashwin to Gabriel, 1 run, another carrom ball and this time Gabriel gets an outside edge and calls him through for the single. It could have been dicey had the ball been thrown to the non-striker, but they're home

54.4

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, tossed up on middle and is turned into midwicket

54.5

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, too wide outside leg stump to interest Ramdin

54.6

Ashwin to Ramdin, no run, gives it some air and the batsman prods forward to nudge it towards short leg

West Indies 182/9   R Ashwin 15-2-45-3
