6.3 Revenge! kicks up from short of length, outside off stump, Uthappa stabs at it and ends up steering it straight to first slip. 47/1
View dismissal SC Ganguly st †Ramdin b Gayle 68 111 82 8 1 82.92
24.6 Gone this time! Ganguly charges down the track, Gayle sticks to his outside legstump line and Ganguly meets thin air with his attempted heave, and Ramdin gathers the ball down leg side and whips off the bail. Ganguly leaves the arena, cursing himself. The crowd are in more forgiving mood. They applaud his fifty. 148/2
View dismissal R Dravid* c Simmons b Samuels 78 160 109 7 0 71.55
43.3 deja-vu for Dravid. Like in Chennai, he kept his left foot out and attempted to slog sweep. Ends up sending it down the throat of long on. 266/3

View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Harbhajan Singh b Khan 14 35 23 2 0 60.86
7.6 gone! another cross-batted heave and this time the damage is done. Good length delivery outside the off stump and Chanderpaul plays well and truly across the line, ball hits the bottom half of the bat and balloons up towards deep square leg. Harbhajan moves in from the deep and nicely settles under it. Both the openers are back in the hut and West Indies are in trouble here 32/2
View dismissal CH Gayle b Agarkar 6 12 11 1 0 54.54
2.6 beauty! Agarkar cleans up Gayle. Peach of a delivery. A perfect off cutter which becomes a classic leg cutter for Gayle. Delivered from slighly round-arm action, it lands on the middle stump, on a length, sucking Gayle tentatively forward before cutting away to crash into the off stump. 10/1
View dismissal DS Smith c Yuvraj Singh b Pathan 24 66 31 2 0 77.41
14.1 Wow! what a catch by Yuvraj Singh! The man has to be fit if he can pull this off. And what's more Irfan Pathan gets a wicket. Fullish, on the middle stump line and Devon Smith slogs it across the line and it was flying to left of short midwicket when Yuvraj decided to intervene. He flung himself, both feet in the air, and was almost parallel to the ground when he grabbed the ball. Super effort! 65/3
View dismissal MN Samuels c Pathan b Kumble 55 103 63 7 1 87.30
30.2 Samules departs. Kumble follows up the quicker delivery with a much slower delivery, Samules is bit early in to the drive, in the end it was more of a chip drive and the ball went straight to the Pathan at long-off. West Indies six down and it's time for drinks 148/6
View dismissal BC Lara* run out (Pathan) 3 6 2 0 0 150.00
14.5 Pathan to Samuels, What a tragedy for Lara. This was his last innings in Indian soil and what a sad way to go. Irfan dropped Samuels but he has taken out Lara, run out at non striker's end. Samuels drove straight at Pathan who palms it straight at the sticks at the non-striker's end and Lara is caught short of the crease. His bat was in the air. Cruel. I don't really love the cricketing goddess so much now! 72/4
View dismissal LMP Simmons run out (sub [SK Raina]) 4 9 6 1 0 66.66
16.4 Pathan to Samuels, Raina takes out Simmons. Doing his bit to stay in the squad. Samuels steered a off cutter to backward point and set off for a run. Raina swooped in, picked up and hurled a direct hit. Bowden raises the fatal finger. All the drama seems to be happening when Pathan is bowling. A super catch from Yuvraj, a tragic dismissal of Lara and now a direct hit by Raina 83/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c Kumble b Harbhajan Singh 40 61 52 5 0 76.92
31.2 Ramdin sweeps himself out of the game. Tossed up, a touch slower in the air, on the off stump and Ramdin sweeps it straight into Kumble's palms at deep midwicket 153/7
View dismissal DR Smith lbw b Kumble 0 12 5 0 0 0.00
32.5 Gotcha! trapped him in front. Full in length, lands on the middle stump line and Dwayne Smith goes for a sweep and doesn't make contact. Another one bites the dust as West Indies continue with their meek surrender. 155/8
View dismissal RR Emrit c Uthappa b Agarkar 13 34 33 1 0 39.39
40.2 Uthappa takes a very good catch. Agarkar bangs it short, at the off stump line and Emrit pulls weakly and it looks as if it would drop short of Uthappa at midwicket but he dives forward to take a neat catch 180/9
IDR Bradshaw not out 14 18 16 2 0 87.50
View dismissal DBL Powell c sub (SK Raina) b Yuvraj Singh 1 5 8 0 0 12.50
41.4 That's it. India wrap up the series with a comfortable win. Powell attempts to pull a slow delivery from Yuvraj, is too early into the stroke and skies it to for Raina to hold a simple catch at cover. 181/10
