    2.4 Bhuvneshwar finds himself in the way of this mistimed swat from Charles, it smacks him in the stomach, he wraps his hands around the ball and sends Charles back, Charles went after this length ball, but it bounced and hit the bat quite high, so that it looped back and took Bhuvneshwar down as well, he's lost his breath but the wicket will help him get it back 14/1
    26.1 oh dear, what's Powell done, he's walked out in a daze past Ashwin's flighted offbreak, big turn past the bat as he tries to weakly defend, stranded miles down the track, another waste of a wicket, more reward for the disciplined Ashwin 147/4
    5.4 this is sensational from Dhoni, Mohit is bowling well into the mid-130s, the captain decides to come up, the bowler gets one to move in slightly after pitching on a good length, Samuels goes for another drive, and the thin edge is snapped up low by the captain, who jumps immediately in delight, what a sharp, sharp take 23/2
    22.1 the partnership is broken on 100, this time Dhoni holds on to the catch, Bravo tries to cut one too close to the off stump, and it is a healthy edge to the keeper, once again, West Indies have given India an opening, despite the numerous dropped catches, just reward for Ashwin, who has bowled with superb control with a wet ball 123/3
    46.6 that's a goner, with the last ball of his spell, Jadeja keeps India alive, this comes in with the angle, Simmons is caught on the crease, misses the whip and is hit low on the pad in front of middle and leg 267/6
    34.3 and another West Indies gift falls in India's lap, Bravo had batted quite well till now, he's tried manufacturing a boundary with a pick-up pull on one leg, and has found the man on the deep square leg boundary with precision 185/5
    not out
    48.2 Holder gives it away with a skip down the track and a swing of the bat, thick edge settles into Dhoni's gloves, quite needless 285/7
    48.5 oh dear, another one throws it away, Narine tries an almighty pull, he is hurried for pace on the short ball, and the top edge ends in square leg's hands, they cross over, and Sammy will be on strike next ball 285/8
