    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

    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
