    21.3 there's wicket No. 5, Gayle looking to cut off the back foot, top edges it to the keeper, this was a slightly quicker one from Ojha, good take by Dhoni, another one for Ojha, will this match last beyond lunch? 87/5
    6.2 oh that's a waste of a wicket! Powell gives it away by lofting it straight to long off, the lone man in the deep. He came charging down the pitch and had to wait a little longer as Ashwin delivered it at a slower pace, and that probably messed up his timing. Shami at long-off came running forward and took a good, low diving catch 15/1
    9.4 oh that's the nightwatchman's end! He has been given lbw! It was a quicker flatter delivery, but was it going too far down the leg side? Possibly. it pitched on the middle and leg stump line and didn't straighten enough I reckon..Nigel Llong disagrees 28/2
    12.2 and they are falling in a heap! Ashwin comes round the wicket, gets it to turn and bounce, it catches the outside edge and settles into the palms of Vijay at second slip.. It's all turning into a bad dream for West Indies 43/3
    17.3 there's wicket No. 4, Samuels caught miles out of the crease as he jumps out and looks to launch that towards long-on, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball, the ball spins away past the flashing blade, Dhoni has tons of time to take off the bails 74/4
    38.2 that was plumb! Tossed up on the half stump, a tentative Chanderpaul was half forward and his bat was behind the front pad as he looked to defend forward, a nothing shot really, that skidded through and struck the front pad, very easy decision 157/7
    23.4 all too easy this for India, Ojha gets his third of the morning, Deonarine looking to drive can only push it back to Ojha for a simple caught-and-bowled chance, this is embarrassing from West Indies, nine wickets in the game for Ojha, currently his best match figures 89/6
    not out
    39.6 a clueless Sammy's misery comes to an end! The arm ball this time, landed on middle and leg, Sammy was forward, struck on the pad and heading towards the stumps, Llong gives him out immediately 162/8
    44.4 lbw off the sweep! 9 down now, tossed up and he gets down to sweep, played too early, struck on the thigh, plumb and an easy decision 185/9
    46.6 the middle stump is flattened! Shami gets him with the swing he's known for! This was full and Gabriel was pushing forward, breaches his defense and the middle stump lands a couple of yards back 187/10
