    34.2 another ordinary delivery gets West Indies a wicket, Gambhir will be kicking himself after this, a length ball well outside off, Gambhir goes for the drive, pops it straight to short cover, and West Indies have struck, you-know-who coming in to bat now 149/2
    12.1 the drinks break works a charm for West Indies, Sehwag is gone first ball after that, it wasn't a great delivery or anything, a length ball that Sehwag wanted to murder, he can only club it as far as a straight-ish short midwicket, West Indies are ecstatic, and why not. The bat turned in Sehwag's hands as he played that shot 66/1
    86.6 Brathwaite gets his first Test wicket, and it's a huge wicket, Dravid stays back to a length delivery and is bowled off the under-edge, that one turned in quite a but, he is furious with himself to be dismissed at this late stage of the day, that too when West Indies were just going through the motions, you can't make this stuff up 345/4
    51.6 stop that countdown, Tendulkar is gone, just as Gavaskar was mentioning the swelling crowd, Tendulkar falls to Bishoo again, a short ball which turns away, Tendulkar looks to pull off the back foot, can't beat Marlon Samuels at midwicket, India can get back to work now 205/3

    87.3 and another wicket here, the nightwatchman Ishant Sharma is gone, a bouncer from Roach just outside off, Ishant forced to play that, hangs his bat at it after standing tall, feathered to the keeper, West Indies ending the day strongly 346/5
    97.5 lbw! Sammy bowls a full ball just pitching in line with the stumps and going straight through to Yuvraj, who tried to play across the line by bringing his bat across his front pad. There was no inside edge before the ball crashed into the pad below the knee roll. Looked quite out. Yuvraj's troubled innings had ended. 396/6
    148.3 caught behind, and it's not a no-ball this time! Dhoni tried to cut a short of a length ball through point, he got a thick edge through to Baugh. He departs after 224-run partnership. Dhoni had been caught twice off no-balls from Roach, on 13 and 16 620/7

    1.2 caught at second slip! A 140kph delivery in less than ideal light. The ball bounced more than usual from a good length around off stump, Barath was squared up on the back foot and the outside edge flew quickly to Sehwag 3/1
    11.1 caught at bat pad! Brathwaite came forward to defend but was beaten by the flight, the ball spun into him and lobbed off the pad to Gambhir, who had an easy catch to take. Did that hit the bat, though? I'll need to see a replay. Don't think there was an edge 30/2
    16.3 lbw! Ojha gets his 50th Test wicket. He followed the previous delivery which spun away sharply with an arm ball. Edwards went back and played for the turn, but there was no turn. He was hit on the pad in front of middle and leg. The only doubt was whether it was sliding down leg side, I reckon it was clipping leg stump. Edwards was so foxed by the arm ball that the bat was no where near the line of the delivery 42/3

    31.1 bowled him! Off stump has been uprooted. Yadav delivers a good length ball that pitches in line with the stumps and angles across the left-hander from over the wicket. Bravo pushes forward and slightly away from his body to play the ball on the off side, he gets an inside edge on to off stump 92/5
    18.3 lbw! Huge wicket for India. There's no doubt about this one. Chanderpaul moved right across his stumps and missed the straighter one because he was playing across the line. He was caught on the crease right in front. That would have hit middle and leg. 46/4
    33.4 bowled him! Off and middle stump have been uprooted. The ball angled into the right-hander, pitched on a good length around middle stump, and straightened slightly off the pitch to beat the outside edge as Samuels defended from the crease. Terrific delivery. Samuels played down the wrong line 99/6
    40.4 lbw! West Indies continue to crash and burn. Baugh tries to sweep and gets hit in front of the stumps by one that seems to be going straight on. The impact was below the knee roll, it looked out even though he was a long way forward 129/9
    36.6 caught behind! West Indies are floundering. Ojha responds to the six with a flighted delivery that pitches on a good length, spins away and bounces considerably. Sammy goes back to cut but gets an edge to Dhoni. He was undone by the bounce on that one 120/7

    32.4 caught at first slip! The ball is full outside off stump, Barath moves forward and reaches out for it, trying to drive hard through cover. The outside edge flies quickly and low to Laxman's left at first slip. He manages to get down low enough to catch the ball inches from the ground. That ball moved away from the right-hander just a little after pitching. 116/2
    4.2 caught behind! Brathwaite fishes at a good length ball outside off stump without moving his feet, he plays away from his body and gets an edge, the ball was dying on Dhoni but he managed to catch it cleanly. The umpire Rod Tucker checked with the leg umpire if the ball had carried before sending Brathwaite on his way 23/1
    50.1 lbw! Ishant bowls a full delivery from over the wicket, pitching around middle and straightening a little, Edwards stayed in his crease and tried to play towards midwicket by bringing his bat across the front pad. He missed and was hit in front. 161/3
    110.1 scratch the Kolkata 2001 talk, Ojha has struck, he sends down a straight delivery, length ball outside off, Bravo pokes his bat at it, takes the outside-edge and Dravid takes a smart catch at first slip, it came quickly to his right, but the man with the most catches in Test cricket makes it look easy 401/5
    83.5 big wicket for India, Chanderpaul is gone! that is a short of length ball just outside off, Chanderpaul looks to push that towards cover off the back foot, gets an inside-edge which sends the ball on to the stumps, and West Indies' lose their best chance of saving this one 269/4
    117.5 Ashwin has struck, West Indies' last specialist batsman is gone, Samuels was caught on the back foot by a length delivery, that pitched outside off and struck him on the back leg as the ball tuns past his bat, his bat actually hit the flap of his back pad, so it came down slower than expected, the ball hits him in front of off, it was plumb! and an early finish looms now 417/7
    116.1 outstanding catch from Dravid at first slip, Baugh fails with the bat again, a length ball spins towards off stump after pitching in middle and leg, Baugh ends up playing inside the line as he doesn't expect the ball to turn as much as it did, takes the outside edge, Dravid has to dive to his right to snap that up low, not bad for a 38-year-old! 411/6
    126.2 the change in bowling does the trick, you miss I hit, a length ball jag in and knocks the off stump after Sammy looks to become hit his fourth six of the innings, no contact with the bat, only with the stumps 463/9
    121.4 where did that come from, Ashwin gets the length ball to drift away before barrelling back in, through the gate and crashes into the top of off and middle, superb delivery, too good for Roach, and this match is quickly winding down 421/8

    126.3 it's all over, India take the series, they are up 2-0 now, Umesh Yadav rips out the off stump of the left-hander this time, Bishoo had no clue about that one, he looks to defend it off the back foot but it zips past his bat to crash into the stumps 463/10
