    4.2 bowled'im! Full and straight on the off stump, a yorker, Fletcher had made room and didn't get his bat down in time, it crashed into off 22/2
    3.5 given, was the conventional offspinner, Ashwin dropped it short, holding back the length, turned in sharply, Simmons was clearly cramped for room as it spun big, did he get an inside edge? It popped off Parthiv's gloves and Kohli took it off the ricochet at slip. Replays show it struck Parthiv's helmet. We don't really know if there was an inside edge, but even if there was one, that cannot be given out since the ball made contact with the fielder/keeper's helmet before being caught. Fletcher spoke to the umpire about that, but a replay wasn't called for. The original decision has been upheld and Simmons had to go. Replays again show that there was no contact with the bat either. It came off the thigh. A poor decision in the end 22/1
    15.5 West Indies slipping further, was in the slot outside off, went for the slog-sweep, was targeting cow corner, ended up getting an inside edge straight onto the stumps 92/4
    15.3 Harbhajan gave that one a bit of air and held back the pace, Samuels had made his mind up, went for the slog-sweep, trying to clear deep square leg, got a top edge and Parthiv kept his eyes on it to take a well-judged catch 88/3

    16.2 Sammy's holed out, was the slower one from Praveen and he swings it straight into the palms of Kohli at long-on, no hope from here on 93/5
