    9.6 caught at square leg! Gayle's played a poor shot. Bhuvneshwar pitched the ball short and angled it wide outside the off stump, Gayle tried to pull it from far outside off instead of trying to send it over point, and he got a top edge that lobbed up for Kohli to catch. Powell had been dismissed in similar fashion in the first innings 33/1
    30.4 lbw! That's right in front. Ashwin flighted the ball into the left-hander from round the wicket, Powell could have been forward to that but he played back. The ball pitched around off and middle, straightened a little, and kept very low to beat Powell's defence and hit the pad. 101/2
    34.3 caught at point! The well-set Bravo is gone to a loose shot. Ashwin pitched outside off and got the ball to bounce a bit more. Bravo went back to cut and hit it in the air, the fielder dived forward at point to take the catch as the ball dipped on him 120/4
    31.6 lbw! After reversing the ball away from the right-hander, Shami swings it into him and hits Samuels on the knee roll of the front pad. That looked like it was missing leg stump but umpire Llong did not think so. Replays indicate it would have missed leg stump, considering how much it swung. Excellent variation from Shami though. 110/3
    not out
    37.6 caught at short leg! Shami pitches on a length just outside off and swings it into the right-hander, cramping Ramdin for room as he defends from the crease. The ball takes the inside edge, and lobs up off the pad towards short leg, where Vijay catches it easily 125/5
    48.2 Shami's done it again with reverse swing! He's battered middle stump. The ball pitched on a length outside off stump and jagged back viciously into the right-hander, Sammy was caught on the crease as he tried to defend and was beaten between bat and body. That ball kept a bit low too, considering the length it pitched, and skidded on to uproot middle stump 152/6
    48.4 he's knocked another one over! Shami has eight in the Test. He bowled it full and reverse swung the ball back into Shillingford, who was half forward as he drove at the ball with a gap between bat and pad. Shami went through that gap and off stump took a hit this time 152/7
    48.5 that's swung on to the boot, a full and reverse-swinging delivery, and the Indians love it, they are up in arms over the lbw appeal but the umpire says not out. That's a very close shout indeed. But has Permaul been run out? He was dozy in getting back to the crease, he was looking at the umpire having taken a couple of steps out, waiting for the lbw decision. Dhoni was appealing but he was alert enough to spot Permaul out of his ground and his underarm throw hit the stumps direct 152/8
    51.3 caught at deep midwicket! Best has a wry smile as he walks off the field. Ashwin flighted the ball beautifully and it dipped on Tino and beat him in the flight. He slogged across the line and mis-hit it straight to Ojha on the boundary 159/9
    54.1 Shami has ended the game and completed his five for! He burst through Cottrell's defences with a full ball that jagged back tremendously through the gap between bat and pad to flatten middle stump. India have won by an innings and Shami has nine in the Test 168/10
