    19.4 GONE! That's the big wicket. Pushed through fuller and on the off, this one does not spin as much as the last two balls, Gayle goes down on one knee and tries to smash the ball out of the ground, he misses, the off stump is flattened and Sehwag celebrates as India pick up a very vital wicket 90/2
    1.1 beauty to start with and Agarkar strikes first ball! good length delivery, pitched touch outside the off stump and shaping back in, Chattergoon mis-judges it and shoulders arms, ball shapes in and crashes into the stumps 8/1
    34.1 down the pitch comes Sarwan, just when we said he was batting well, a rush of blood, Sarwan tries to give himself a bit of room and hit over cover. He misses and the ball is dead on off stump. That's an important wicket for Sreesanth who has bowled really well in his second spell after going for 25 off his first three overs 137/3
    38.1 again down the pitch, worked through the on side as Harbhajan drags the ball down a touch short, they charge through for the first run, Lara slips coming back for the second, the throw is good, Dhoni whips the bails off. This one has gone up to the third umpire and it is a tight call. OUT is the decision! That is a crucial wicket here! 165/4

    48.3 and the inevitable! fulltoss, drifting down the leg side, Hinds makes room and lofts it straight down the throat of Sehwag at wide long-on, Agarkar gets one more to his name, West Indies five down 243/5
    49.3 you miss I hit, full and on the stumps, Smith plays all over it and the stumps are rearranged 251/6

    0.3 believe it or not Hinds strikes! good length delivery, pitched wide outside the off stump and moving away ever-so-slightly, Uthappa plays away from him his body, nothing more than a tentative poke, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to Ramdin behind the stumps 0/1
    37.2 well disguised slower delivery outside the off stump and Sehwag is completely and utterly foxed, drives on the up and the ball goes straight to the big man Gayle at cover 189/7
    6.1 good length delivery outside the off stump, a fairly harmless ball, Dhoni leans back and comes down hard on it, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps - it's that maan Hinds again! 26/2
    12.5 terrible mix-up! tossed up on the pads, Sehwag takes off straight away after pushing it towards silly mid-on, Dravid was not interested in the single but Sehwag never stopped and in the end Dravid had to respond, Mohammed quickly moves across to his right and scores a direct hit at the striker's end, Dravid is just short of his crease - third umpire confirms 73/3
    22.6 beautiful ball! tossed up, on the stumps, Yuvraj is tempted to go for the big hit, the ball pitches and comes in, beating the bat and clipping leg stump. That is a big wicket for Dave Mohammed. Yuvraj Singh certainly looked in good touch. 130/4
    31.2 goodness me! good length delivery outside the off stump, ball stopped a bit after hitting the deck, Kaif pushes forward and drives it straight to Gayle at short cover who sallows it with ease - horrible shot to say the least 170/5
    35.3 Raina goes! too short and too wide outside the off stump, a harmless ball but Raina plays a mindless cut shot and the resultant edge goes straight to Ramdin behind the stumps, India continues to slump 180/6
    47.6 GONE! All over! Slighltly short, Agarkar goes for the big pull, he makes good contact but certainly not good enough to beat the fielder in the deep! West Indies come through again, four games in a row and they take the series 4-1! 236/10
    46.3 GONE! Harbhajan comes down the track and loses his cool. He goes for the big one and Mohammed has just held it back a touch, it arrives slowly on Harbhajan and the swinging blade can only mis-hit the ball towards long-off. Ian Bradshaw, fielding as a substitute, comes running in and throws himself a fair way to take a good catch. That is well done! 230/8
    46.5 Munaf Patel goes for the big shot first up and comes a cropper! Dave Mohammed tosses one up and Munaf goes for the sweep, it's the googly and Munaf is playing against the turn, the ball takes the top edge and balloons up to the deep. Sewnarine Chattergoon may have been embarrassed when he picked up a first-ball duck when he batted, but he takes this catch with ease! West Indies inch closer to victory! 231/9
