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

0.2

Kumar to Powell, 2 runs, looks to be a slightly slowish outfield as the full length ball angled across the left-hander is steered fine of the point fielder

0.3

Kumar to Powell, no run, goes off the inside half of the bat as he comes forward to block the full length ball on middle and swinging to leg

0.4

Kumar to Powell, no run, beaten. Appreciable seam movement there as the ball pitches just outside off and goes away a little further. Powell hung his bat out, shouldn't have done that

0.5

Kumar to Powell, no run, and this time he drives on the up. It was on a full length inviting the shot but as an opener he should be a little more tight. Beaten outside off again

0.6

Kumar to Powell, no run, and it is finished with a solid drive down to mid-on and the crowd recognises the fielder and throws out a huge yell. Sachin mania at its peak

West Indies 3/0   B Kumar 1-0-3-0

2.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, swings away a touch, a leading edge towards cover as he aims to play that towards midwicket

2.2

Kumar to Powell, no run, gets the ball to move away outside off stump, left alone

2.3

Kumar to Powell, FOUR, superbly driven by Powell, that was full from Bhuvneshwar, Powell doesn't really get forward much, just a half-step but he connects perfectly as he pushes that through mid-off

2.4

Kumar to Powell, no run, not as confident from Powell this time, he was looking to leave that one but is late to raise the bat and it deflects off the blade towards gully

2.5

Kumar to Powell, no run, slants away outside off, left alone by Powell

2.6

Kumar to Powell, no run, beauty from round the wicket, Bhuvneshwar has the ball snaking around, Powell looking to defend this length ball outside off, he gets forward trying to block but is beaten by the movement, past the outside edge and through to the keeper

West Indies 9/0   B Kumar 2-0-7-0

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

4.5

Kumar to Powell, no run, outside off from round the wicket, easy leave that for Powell

4.6

Kumar to Powell, 1 run, fuller and on the pads, clipped towards deep square leg

West Indies 22/0   B Kumar 3-0-11-0

6.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, angled it into the batsman and there was a gentle bit of movement away, Powell watches it carefully and lets it go

6.2

Kumar to Powell, no run, full length on off stump and he blocks down the ground

6.3

Kumar to Powell, no run, ample swing on offer for Bhuvi. Puts it on a good length just around off stump and makes it jag away from the bat. Powell though was wary of it and allowed it to pass to the keeper

6.4

Kumar to Powell, no run, gets forward and keeps his bat and pad together as he keeps this full length ball out

6.5

Kumar to Powell, 2 runs, oh, the maiden is ruined and more importantly the pressure is released as this one is back of a length on the batsman's pads and he works it off to long leg

6.6

Kumar to Powell, no run, pitches it almost at yorker-length but Powell, eyes almost as big as Murali's, digs it out to cover to end the over

West Indies 27/1   B Kumar 4-0-13-0

8.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, oh, unnecessary shot. Big away swinger from Bhuvi again and he was drawn into the on-the-up drive through the covers. Second time he's been tempted like that and this time too the ball beats him

8.2

Kumar to Powell, no run, on a good length on off stump and it's hit solidly down the ground

8.3

Kumar to Powell, no run, pitches on leg stump and seams just a shade away but the batsman accounts for it and blocks

8.4

Kumar to Powell, no run, goes for a slash, but has no luck in connecting. Short ball from Bhuvi, with a lot of room. He goes for the cut and it looked like he did not hold anything back. Powell would be disappointed to have missed that

8.5

Kumar to Powell, no run, squirted away to gully as the full length ball shapes away after pitching and squares up the batsman as he looks to meet it

8.6

Kumar to Powell, no run, third time beaten in the same over! This was back of a length, but the ball still nibbles just a little bit away. Powell goes for a push into the off side off the back foot, but his luck only ensures he doesn't nick it

West Indies 31/1   B Kumar 5-1-13-0

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   B Kumar 6-2-13-0

15.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, was playing all around that one, but the swing was always taking it down the leg side and there was a giant inside edge too. Full length ball is talking a lot this morning

15.2

Kumar to Powell, 1 run, swinging in again, this one off a good length which allows the batsman to go back and clip it behind square on the leg side

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   B Kumar 7-2-14-0

17.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, the flick doesn't work again as the good length ball on leg stump thuds into his pads

17.2

Kumar to Powell, no run, dropped That was carrying comfortably and Ashwin fumbles it badly at first slip. The ball hits him on the wrist. I guess the ball was coming a little higher than he expected, but that was no excuse for reacting so late. It was a genuine edge taken off a length ball that swing away

17.3

Kumar to Powell, 1 run, on a length and on the pads as he works it away to long leg

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   B Kumar 8-2-15-0

19.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, too short and far too wide outside leg stump to interest Powell

19.2

Kumar to Powell, FOUR, strays on the pads again, this one on a length and all Powell had to do was get a little feather on it and the ball runs away to the long leg boundary

19.3

Kumar to Powell, no run, much better. This was full and on a wicket-to-wicket line as the batsman presents a straight bat

19.4

Kumar to Powell, no run, 129 kph and that is more like it. The batsman fishes for the ball, which was pitched on a fullish length pitching on off and then seaming further away. Beaten

19.5

Kumar to Powell, no run, outswinger again and Powell was drawn into it again, but was able pull his bat back just in time as the length ball goes to the keeper

19.6

Kumar to Powell, no run, on the pads this time as he goes for a flick shot, but this one too evades the bat as it takes the thigh pad and goes off to the keeper. Mild appeal, but nothing in it

West Indies 64/1   B Kumar 9-2-19-0

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

21.5

Kumar to Powell, 3 runs, goes fuller this time and he makes sure to keep his pad away from the arc of his bat as he whips the ball through midwicket. Tendulkar chases it down from mid-on and elicits a big roar

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   B Kumar 10-2-27-0

23.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, squirts off the outside edge as the full length ball with just a little bite of away movement goes off to gully

23.2

Kumar to Powell, 1 run, back of a length on the pads and he tucks it behind square on the leg side

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   B Kumar 11-2-28-0

25.1

Kumar to Powell, no run, fullish ball on and around off stump as the batsman blocks

25.2

Kumar to Powell, 1 run, goes a little more fuller, and a little more closer to off stump. The batsman plays close to his body as a thick outside edge runs down to third man

25.3

Kumar to Samuels, no run, 128 kph, fullish length outside off stump and once Samuels had gauged that he was not going to play at it

25.4

Kumar to Samuels, no run, 126 kph and the in swing that he got made Samuels look rather lethargic. There was gap between bat and pad as he looked to defend and got an inside edge

25.5

Kumar to Samuels, no run, keeps it full and on the off stump corridor as Samuels tightens his technique and leaves

25.6

Kumar to Samuels, no run, oh, and he pokes at that. It was an excellent away swinger, if only a little too wide outside off stump. The movement beat the outside edge

West Indies 87/2   B Kumar 12-2-29-0

37.1

Kumar to Chanderpaul, no run, Bhuvneshwar Kumar's first ball is left alone by Chanders, in his inimitable style

37.2

Kumar to Chanderpaul, FOUR, terrific line from Bhuvneshwar, just outside off stump, Chanders edges it, but since he played with soft hands that rolls past slips

37.3

Kumar to Chanderpaul, no run, waits on the back foot and blocks this towards slips

37.4

Kumar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, length ball on middle and leg, Chanderpaul eases that towards mid-on for a quick single

37.5

Kumar to Samuels, no run, short of length ball just outside off, defended off the front foot towards point

37.6

Kumar to Samuels, no run, again that probing off stump line, short of length ball, defended from the crease by Samuels

West Indies 133/3   B Kumar 13-2-34-0

39.1

Kumar to Samuels, no run, short of length ball just outside off, blocked towards the off side

39.2

Kumar to Samuels, no run, full ball angling in towards the pads, pushed towards mid-on, Samuels looking more sure of himself now

39.3

Kumar to Samuels, no run, pitched up, on off stump, defended to the leg side by Samuels

39.4

Kumar to Samuels, no run, outside off and that is an easy leave

39.5

Kumar to Samuels, FOUR, lovely hit from Samuels, a touch short from Bhuvneshwar, bit of width as well, Samuels waits in the crease and caresses that through the covers

39.6

Kumar to Samuels, no run, beautiful from Bhuvneshwar, gets his line and length perfect, gets the ball to swerve away just a touch, Samuels is sucked into playing that one, beaten once more, as he has been plenty of times this innings

West Indies 139/3   B Kumar 14-2-38-0

41.1

Kumar to Deonarine, no run, length ball on the pads, Deonarine wants the single but Chanders doesn't, sent back early enough though

41.2

Kumar to Deonarine, 1 run, short of length ball on middle and leg, helped down to SRT at fine leg

41.3

Kumar to Chanderpaul, no run, shortish ball outside off, moving away from the left-hander, who does well to leave that rising delivery

41.4

Kumar to Chanderpaul, no run, short of length ball well outside off, no worry for Chanderpaul

41.5

Kumar to Chanderpaul, no run, a bit too wide outside off again, certainly too wide to worry Chanderpaul, several other WI batsmen might have had a nibble at that

41.6

Kumar to Chanderpaul, no run, well outside off, no need for Chanders to play that

West Indies 142/4   B Kumar 15-2-39-0

43.1

Kumar to Deonarine, no run, lovely ball, homing in on the off stump as the batsman steps confidently forward and blocks

43.2

Kumar to Deonarine, no run, full, outside off and swinging away, Deonarine being new at the crease doesn't want anything to do with that

43.3

Kumar to Deonarine, 2 runs, length ball outside off, and this time Deonarine benefits from an outside edge as the ball trickles away to third man

43.4

Kumar to Deonarine, 3 runs, back foot punch and it travels almost all the way. He's looked quite compact in this little innings, this time moving properly back to drive the ball through the covers

43.5

Kumar to Chanderpaul, OUT, no 150 on his 150th Test for Chanders, at least on his first essay. Edged and this time Ashwin pouches it well. Peach of a ball from Bhuvneshwar, probably needed something like that to prise him out early, as this one was pitched back of a length on leg and seamed away enough to square him up. A fine nick is taken and Bhuvi this time exults. It was off his bowling that Ashwin dropped Kieran Powell earlier

S Chanderpaul c Ashwin b Kumar 25 (58m 34b 2x4 1x6) SR: 73.52

43.6

Kumar to Ramdin, no run, back of a length outside off and it is punched away off the back foot

West Indies 148/5   B Kumar 16-2-44-1

45.1

Kumar to Ramdin, no run, beaten outside off stump again as the length ball seams away to beat the batsman's back foot poke

45.2

Kumar to Ramdin, no run, length ball outside off and it is pushed away to point with an open face

45.3

Kumar to Ramdin, no run, full length ball swinging away, but it started too wide outside off to interest Ramdin

45.4

Kumar to Ramdin, no run, gets a little closer this time, but it is still comfortably outside off to be left alone

45.5

Kumar to Ramdin, no run, 129 kph, and the last three balls could well have been action replays. Full length, beginning around sixth stump and swinging away

45.6

Kumar to Ramdin, 1 run, and the set-up is complete, without the desired result though. Sneaks in the incutter but Ramdin comes forward and works it through midwicket to get off the mark
