    1.4 gone! first strike to Agarkar! Pushed across Gayle who has a lame poke at it, and nicks it behind. A nothing shot, as they say and West Indies have lost the man who gave them a roaring start in the first game. India on the offensive here! 1/1
    2.2 Got his man this time! full and it pitched on the off stump and straigthened towards the off stump and Morton went back and across but was surprised by the movement back into him and is trapped in front of the off stump. It would have taken the top of the off stump. 1/2

    10.5 Got his man this time! Lara is out! lovely delivery that pitched on the off stump, on a length, and seamed away sharply. Lara, who had allowed the previous two balls to go through to the wicketkeeper, comes forward and has a poke at it. He tries to steer it through gully and is beaten by the movement and ends up edging to Dravid at first slip. The great batsman is gone and India are on top of things here 24/3
    18.6 short and wide outside the off stump, a delivery filled with nothingness, Chanderpaul leans back and cuts it away in the air towards point, Kaif there times his jump to perfection and pouches it safely - West Indies four down and in deep trouble here 43/4
    34.6 gone! beautiful work by Dhoni! It pitched on the off and middle stump line and Samuels backs to the leg a bit and tries to cut but is beaten by the extra bounce and Dhoni, moving towards his left, pouches it safely. And what's more whips off the bails as Samuels falls outside the crease, just in case the catch was not given! 103/5
    35.5 Wonderful catch by Raina at short midwicket! tossed outside the off stump, it drifts further away and Bravo, who had come down the track, tries to whip it from outside the off stump and mistimes his flick-drive and Raina dives forward and to his left to come up with a superb catch 105/6
    41.6 and Baugh departs! long-hop from Powar, Baugh rocks back and pulls hard, gets under it a bit and the ball balloons up towards deep midwicket, Pathan runs in from the deep and nicely settles under it - West Indies seven down 143/7
    46.3 on the middle and off stump line, Bradshaw has a swipe across the line and the ball flies down to long-on, Harbhajan moves in from the deep and takes it cleanly - Bradshaw too departs, trying to force the pace - West Indies eight down 163/8
    49.5 Agarkar hits back for India! good length delivery, close to the off stump line, Taylor for starters steps away in an effort to make room, but changes his mind, basically he lost it totally and in the end it was a nothing shot, faint edge produced and Dhoni takes a good low catch - West Indies nine down 197/9

    9.1 gone! short of a length delivery, angled across, Dravid pokes at it, a uncharacteristic shot, gets an edge and is swallowed by Baugh, the wicketkeeper. he went searching for that ball, outside the off stump. Two down and the pressure is on now! 37/2
    5.4 gone! great catch by Dwayne Smith at point! short of length and angled across sehwag who ends up searching for the ball a bit and ends up playing on the walk. He plays a push-drive on the up and it goes in the air towards Smith who runs a few steps forward and dives in front to come up with a very good catch 25/1
    13.6 there it is! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, angling across the left-hander, Pathan comes down hard on it and the ball flies away towards wide midwicket, Samuels there dives across to his left and takes a blinder, was in the air when he took the catch and held on well even though he hit the deck hard 51/3
    49.4 That's it! Game over! West Indies have won! Bravo does it for them, He slips in a slow yorker and Yuvraj comes forward and tries to whip it through the on side, doesn't connect and the furniture is disturbed! Sensational scenes here at Sabina Park! West Indies have won! 197/10
    16.6 Taylor bangs one in short, bit of a surprise delivery and Kaif falls into the trap! ball skidded across after hitting the deck and Kaif looking to pull it away through midwicket ends up with a top-edge, ball balloons up towards square leg and Smith nicely settles under it, Another crucial wicket and it's game-on here! 60/4
    35.2 gone! West Indies get that important breakthrough. Raina dances down the track and ends up playing a pick-up shot, straight to Chanderpaul at long-off! Dhoni is in! 124/5
    37.3 and he does it! short of a good length delivery, close to the off stump and cutting in, Dhoni cuts off the back-foot with no real foot-work, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the woodwork, Taylor pulls out a rabbit and the crowd goes wild - what a wicket! 130/6
    38.5 another one bites the dust! this is unbelievable stuff from West Indies! clever change of pace and Agarkar played the sitting-duck act to perfection, on the middle and leg stump line, Agarkar pushes forward to defend and is beaten by the lack of pace, ball lobs back towards silly mid-on, Bradshaw on his follow through moves across quickly, dives forward full length and takes a stunning catch under pressure 134/7
    46.3 gone! Another twist in the tale here! Crowd are on thier feet as Powar holes out to long off. He came down the track and Samuels, fires it in slightly short and Powar ends up mistiming his lofted shot. 177/8
    48.1 gone!! Brilliantly caught and bowled by Gayle! Drama here at Sabina Park! Harbhajan pushes back tamely, a nothing shot, to right of Gayle who takes a step to his right and flings himself in the air to come up with a low catch. Game on a knife edge here! 187/9
