    10.2 Gayle breaks the partnership! That was bowled flat on off and middle, Uthappa looks to heave it down the ground, the ball takes the splice of the bat and goes high in the air to Simmons who back-pedals at mid-off to take the catch, relief for West Indies 95/2
    1.6 that's the end of Gambhir! That was short and wide outside the off stump, Gambhir goes hard after it and slashes, he gets a very thick outside edge that flies straight to Lendl Simmons at third man who didn't have to move to take that catch 7/1
    15.3 good length ball outside off stump, Raina tries to drive through the line and doesn't control it, he hits it in the air to Lara, who takes a sharp catch at cover 126/3
    37.1 caught and what a catch! Fullish length on off and middle stump, Tendulkar tries to force it over mid-on but doesn't time it well, Morton moves to his left at mid-on and takes a splendid catch, moving backwards over his shoulder 237/5
    34.4 caught on the fence! Dravid goes after Gayle and slogs it from off stump down to long-on, he doesn't get enough on it to clear the fence and Emrit takes a well-judged catch inches inside the fence 232/4
    41.4 caught and bowled, Bravo gave him another short one and Yuvraj tries to pull that from just outside off, he hits it high on the bat and skies it, Bravo calls for the catch and judges it well 255/6
    41.6 Karthik goes! West Indies are back with a bang, Bravo bowls it in the channel outside off stump, Karthik fends at it and gets a faint nick through to Ramdin 255/7
    44.4 Samuels drops it a touch short just outside off stump but bowls it quicker, Agarkar tries to steer it down to third man but gets a thick edge, Morton moves quickly to his left at short third man and dives low to his left to take a sharp catch 259/8
    46.5 soft dismissal, Taylor fires in the fuller ball, Powar doesn't move his feet an inch and tries to close the face of the bat to play it through midwicket, he gets an inside edge on to pad after which the ball balloons up to Taylor who takes the easiest of catches 265/9

    0.1 Agarkar strikes first ball, an identical dismissal to the Cuttack game, a virtual replay really, Agarkar pitches that ball around the off stump, it straightens back into Gayle who hardly moves hiw feet, the ball thuds into the pad first before hitting the bat and Billy Bowden says that's out, he's got it right too 0/1
    12.2 what a catch! Brillant reflexes from Dravid at first slip. That was bowled on off stump, Smith went hard at it and tried to defend, the ball takes a thick edge and flies quickly to Dravid at slip who stretches out his right hand and plucks a sharp catch 92/3
    2.4 Agarkar has another! Poor shot from Morton who fished at a wide one that was swinging away from him, his feet stayed rooted to the spot and he feathered a nick through to Karthik 27/2
    33.3 the Indians appeal for caught behind, Samuels fended at that outside off stump and got a thick edge, it flew low, very low, to Karthik who moved to his right initally, the edge flew to his left and he stuck out his glove and took it inches off the ground, another sharp reflex catch, the umpires discuss whether it carried and Bowden tells Shastri that it has 219/4
    40.6 Lara tries to do it a third time but this time he miscues it and sends it high in the air, Robin Uthappa gets under it at cover and takes a well-judged but easy catch, Lara leaves the ground to loud cheers 257/5
    42.4 tossed up on off stump, Simmons pushes forward and gets beaten by the flight, the ball hits the pad and glove and goes to Uthappa at short leg, another one down 265/7
    41.6 finally Sreesanth has something to smile about, Bravo tries to run one thats too close to him down to third man and steers it to Raina at slip who fumbles it a little but manages it to hang on 261/6
