12.5 caught at cover! A soft dismissal, the slower ball does it for Sammy! Rahane pushed forward way too early and ended up spooning the drive straight to Bravo at cover 50/2
    1.4 bowled him, that is a fine delivery! Taylor pitches on a good length just outside off, the ball is fast and it nips back into the left-hander, Dhawan comes forward to play across the line and leaves a gap between bat and pad. The ball screams through to hit off stump 4/1
    17.4 caught at slip! Benn angled the ball into Rayudu, pitched on off and got it to spin away a touch. Rayudu pushed hard at it from the crease and the ball flew quickly off the outside edge to Sammy, smartly taken at waist height while crouching 74/3
    40.4 flat strike from Kohli, and he's failed to clear Samuels on the edge of the long off rope, wasn't as full from Rampaul, and Kohli had to reach some way forward, scooped it powerfully, but Samuels does well, gets on his toes, and takes it in front of his head 196/5
    36.5 Taylor breaks the partnership, Raina backed away to leg, but Taylor followed him from round the wicket with a pitched up ball, Raina was not sure what to do with it, tried turning it to the on side, but ended up spooning it to Pollard at deep mid off 179/4
    not out
    45.1 Taylor strikes, and Jadeja's struggle is over, a good length offcutter at 116.5 kph, going across Jadeja, no room at all, and he chops it onto the stumps 219/6
    48.6 Bhuvneshwar slogs, and slices this length ball from outside off to Pollard at long on, Dnoni stops Bhuvneshwar just as he is about to cross him down the pitch 248/7

    35.4 Shami with the breakthrough again, and again he does not realise he has bowled Smith, late inswing on this length delivery that was angled in to Smith, he missed the attempted clip, and the ball hit pad and ricocheted into the stumps 170/3
    13.1 right through him, Shami with the breakthrough, this is an excellent delivery, angled in from round the stumps, good length, holds the line after pitching, Bravo has to play at it, pushes inside the line, and the ball brushes off stump to disturb the bails, Shami was appealing initially before he realised he had bowled Bravo 64/1
    28.5 trying too many slogs and he edges it on the stumps! It was well outside off, turning away too and Pollard slog-swept against the turn to the leg side. It got a bottom edge and just got the leg stump. Mishra is excited! 136/2
    39.1 and now he is gone, just not Samuels' night, short and wide from Yadav, and Samuels slams it straight to cover 183/4
    40.2 Mishra takes out one more in his final over, this is a big legbreak, tossed up, good length, on leg stump, bounces, jags across Ramdin, who tries to defend off the back foot, but the outside edge flies low to slip's right, and Raina dives to snap it up 189/5
    43.2 freefall for West Indies now, Bravo goes after this pitched up delivery, and slices it tamely to long off 199/8
    42.1 Dhoni breaks the stumps and appeals confidently, and he has reason to be, Russell beaten by the sharp turn as he pushes forward, and his back leg is in the air when Dhoni stumps him, sharp work by the captain 195/6

    44.2 nine down, and Jadeja has his third, Taylor slogs, doesn't get much distance on it, Bhuvneshwar comes in from long on to take it 201/9

Trouble chasing

End of a drought


Today's partnership between Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina was India's first 100-plus ODI stand for the fourth wicket since August 2012

Awesome twosome


Average partnership between Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina in ODI cricket - the fourth best for any Indian pair (minimum 30 innings)

Sluggish Rayudu


Ambati Rayudu's strike rate today - his lowest for a 30-plus score in ODIs

Compulsive chasers


This is only the fifth time India have batted first out of the 32 times they have won the toss since the start of 2013

Quiet start


India's lowest score against West Indies after 10 overs for the loss of one wicket or fewer, since 2001

The 100 club


Jerome Taylor has become the 15th West Indies bowler to have taken 100 ODI wickets



India have won their last five completed ODIs at the Feroz Shah Kotla
