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

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

1.3

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, a little seam inward this time. This is a pretty good start by India and a pretty good shot from Powell too as he gets back behind it and presents a straight bat

1.4

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, oh, that was close too. But he got his bat in front of his pad just in time. Another pitched up inswinger and well handed by the batsman.

1.5

Mohammed Shami to Powell, 1 run, soft hands allows for a quick single. Goes half a stride forward and pushes it in front of cover as Shikhar Dhawan tries his best but comes in second

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   Mohammed Shami 1-0-2-0

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

3.6

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, opens the face as he looks to play that length ball on off and middle, guides it towards point

West Indies 14/0   Mohammed Shami 2-0-7-0

5.1

Mohammed Shami to Powell, 1 run, clipped to deep fine leg as the batsman rides the in swing available. Shami's keeping the ball nice and full and the seam position is quite upright

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

5.4

Mohammed Shami to Powell, 1 leg bye, ah, he strays again. Too easy for Powell as the strike rotates continuously. This one was back of a length but well outside leg stump

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   Mohammed Shami 3-0-9-1

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   Mohammed Shami 4-0-13-1

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

9.4

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, goes full and gets a little movement in as the batsman looks to work it away to leg again, but doesn't manage to

9.5

Mohammed Shami to Powell, FOUR, oh that was crisp. Half-volley on leg stump and Powell stays back and gets good enough contact to send it flying to the midwicket boundary

9.6

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, another inswinger to end the over as the batsman looks to flick it away but misses

West Indies 36/1   Mohammed Shami 5-0-18-1

11.1

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, beautiful ball outside off, Powell is beaten as he looks to defend that down the track, that short of length ball jags away just a touch to zip past the outside edge

11.2

Mohammed Shami to Powell, 1 run, length ball well outside off, slapped towards cover

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   Mohammed Shami 6-0-23-1

13.1

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, Shami steaming in even in his seventh over, back of length once more, just outside off, past the outside edge

13.2

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, too far outside off, no worry for the batsman

13.3

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, short of length on middle stump, defended down the track

13.4

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, short ball down the leg side, 144kph, not quite the right line

13.5

Mohammed Shami to Powell, 1 run, length ball is pushed towards cover

13.6

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

West Indies 45/1   Mohammed Shami 7-0-24-1

27.1

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, 135 kph and he beats the new batsman straight away with a peach of an outswinger. Samuels was reluctant to move his feet and as such his poke at the ball was quite feeble. He's lucky not to get an outside edge

27.2

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, that began a little too outside off stump and Samuels is happy to let the full length ball go to the keeper

27.3

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, 138 kph, squares him up with late away movement as he opens the face of the bat and plays it with soft hands. That was the saving grace as the back of a length ball is run down to the slip cordon

27.4

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, and it goes right to Shami's script: upright seam, pitches on off and seams away, Samuels attempts to defend but is beaten. This has been a delightful over

27.5

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, 139 kph, covers his stumps and opens the face of the bat to run it to gully. It was on a full length outside off stump again but the batsman was not looking come forward

27.6

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, 139 kph and the away swinger to end the session. Samuels has not looking too convincing in his short stay at the crease and this time as well he is tempted to chase at that back of a length ball outside off

West Indies 93/2   Mohammed Shami 8-1-24-1

29.1

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, Shami pitches it up from over the wicket, driven firmly off the front foot towards mid-off

29.2

Mohammed Shami to Powell, no run, pitched up and outside off, left alone by Powell

29.3

Mohammed Shami to Powell, 1 run, length ball on the pads, whipped behind square leg

29.4

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, Shami tries to get that cordon in play by bowling it wide outside off, trying to tempt Samuels, who lets it go

29.5

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, Shami still getting the ball to swerve away outside off, again Samuels isn't forced into playing at it

29.6

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, this time he is on offstump, 137.5kph, pitched up and Samuels has to play this, defended to the off side

West Indies 97/2   Mohammed Shami 9-1-25-1

31.1

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, a full ball on legstump, almost a yorker, squeezed out by Samuels who stays in the crease as he plays that

31.2

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, a leading edge this time, Samuels looking to whip that length ball to the leg side, ball rolls towards off

31.3

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, defended by Shami, who is attacking the stumps a lot more in this over, not getting carried away by the four slips and gully field

31.4

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, pitched up and that is firmly driven towards mid-off, a roar from the crowd as Tendulkar fields, that bounced more than SRT expected and the ball hits him on the chest

31.5

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, beautiful from Shami, a short of length ball just outside off stump, hint of away movement, Samuels hangs on the backfoot and looks to force that through the off side, he's beaten

31.6

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, slightly wider this time, Samuels once again goes for the flamboyant drive, the away-goer has him beaten again, terrific bowling from Shami, the batting is not as sharp from Samuels, could have easily nicked two in this over

West Indies 107/3   Mohammed Shami 10-2-25-1

33.1

Mohammed Shami to Chanderpaul, no run, short of length ball, 137.5kph, Chanders gets behind the line and defends

33.2

Mohammed Shami to Chanderpaul, 1 run, pitched up and that is worked towards midwicket for an easy single

33.3

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, good stuff this as the Shami v Samuels battle continues, short of length and just outside off this time, Samuels allows it through to the keeper

33.4

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, slants it in from wide of the crease, it was full and heading for the stumps, Samuels defends

33.5

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, short of length ball on 135.1kph, moving away just outside off, defended towards slips, reaches the fielder on the bounce

33.6

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, FOUR, too full from Shami, Samuels doesn't think twice before unleashing the drive, he might have been beaten twice in the previous over but this time it is off the middle of the bat, looks great when it comes off, four through extra cover

West Indies 113/3   Mohammed Shami 11-2-30-1

35.1

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, length ball just outside off, defended from the crease by Samuels

35.4

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, no run, beaten outside off, 136.3kph, Samuels being interrogated outside off here, he's nearly nibbled through to the keeper here

35.5

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, 2 runs, fuller and just outside off, punched past the bowler for a couple

35.6

Mohammed Shami to Samuels, FOUR, Samuels isn't going to shelve his strokes, a full-blooded hit past the bowler this time, lofted and to the left of Shami, and that is a boundary

West Indies 125/3   Mohammed Shami 12-2-36-1
