    22.5 beautiful delivery from Kuldeep. This is the sidespin, plenty of revs. Lands on a length on off and spins back in to beat the inside edge. So the only question then is if this would've gone on to miss the stumps. Even just clipping is fine because the onfield decision is out. Hawkeye shows this would've hit middle and off, and West Indies have not just lost their most solid batsman but also a review. A wicket well deserved for Kuldeep. 52/2
    11.1 what have you done, Powell? This is clever bowling from Ashwin, but you've got to say Powell has given his wicket away on a platter. Stepped out to go over the top, Ashwin saw him coming and shortened his length and bowled it a touch wide, he reached out to go inside-out but ended up chipping it straight to Jadeja at the end of the ring at cover. 32/1

    31.3 once again Umesh's skid beats him for pace, but Hope his hit above the knee roll. Also the angle - sliding into middle from wide of the crease - seems a little exaggerated, and hawkeye shows this would've crashed into leg stump. No time is a good time to lose a wicket, last over before lunch even more so. Hope will be mighty disappointed, but this wicket was coming, Umesh was getting it to veer back in and kept troubling the batsman around the front pad with late movement. Hope has thrown it away after looking extremely solid. 86/3
    34.1 What have you done, Hetmyer? He does not read the variation - wrong'un - and simply pads up to it and wears it on his front pad, thinking it was Kuldeep's stock ball that would have broke away from him. Impact may have been outside off (actually ball-tracking returns umpire's call) but it does not matter, as the batsman did not offer a shot. It would have crashed into middle. Second wicket for Kuldeep and West Indies are four down 92/4
    38.5 this was coming, wasn't? Kuldeep lobs it up around off or just outside, dares Ambris to go over the top again. This looks like a wrong'un. Yes, the variation. Ambris closes the face and chips a leading edge to Jadeja at cover 113/5

    101.3 the stumps have been rattled and Umesh has a five-for. This is a magnificent delivery to get the centurion. This was full, moved in a hint off the seam on middle and beat Chase's forward push to sneak past the inside edge and shatter the stumps. Umesh becomes only the third Indian fast bowler to take a five-for at home since 2010. 311/9
    59.3 big appeal for lbw from Umesh, this looks pretty adjacent, but not given by the umpire. Kohli challenges the on-field not-out decision. Full, starts outside off, and reverse-swings back in to catch him on the knee-roll on the front pad. No inside edge or glove. Dowrich plays around his front pad, but is this nipping past leg stump? The tracker suggests it would hit leg stump. So, Umesh returns and provides India with the breakthrough 182/6
    89.6 Holder has been strangled down the leg side. Banged in short and down leg, Holder is a bit late to adjust to the line. He gloves it behind to Pant. Umesh strikes, this time with the second new ball. Holder didn't really wait for the umpire's decision. He had started walking, says Al Muthu from Hyderabad 286/7

    95.6 the off stump goes for a walk and Umesh has his fourth. Feeble push away from the body from Bishoo, no feet movement, plays down the wrong line and gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. This kept a touch low as well and Bishoo should have been playing forward. India strike early. 296/8

    101.4 he finishes with six and West Indies are all out. These are Umesh's career-best figures, what a return. This is full and moving away off the seam from outside off, Gabriel plays a loose drive, gets a thin edge that is gleefully accepted by Rishabh Pant. 311/10

    8.4 he's dragged this back onto the stumps. Uncertainty in his decision-making again, wanted to leave, then jabs at this length ball that moves away and sees the ball bounce back onto the stumps. Rahul's was a tortured existence, never looked comfortable. Both times the late movement has done him in. India lose their first half an hour before lunch. 61/1
    18.4 driven straight to extra cover! That's nicely done from Warrican. Gets it to loop and dip this time, at a length outside off and that can often do the trick against aggressive batsmen. Shaw will look to drive in this form. This time, he won't get to the pitch and there's marginal movement away from him off the pitch. He's far away enough as it rises on him to not be able to control that. West Indies will be grateful, he was beginning to run away again 98/2
    19.6 thin edge as he hangs the bat outside off and it carries low to Hamilton behind the stumps. It's a straight ball at a length outside off - no movement really. Pujara normally lets those go. This time he jabs at it and with Gabriel's pace, he's caught inside the line of the ball. A loose stroke and suddenly West Indies have the momentum 102/3
    42.5 given lbw! That looks like it has struck him right in front of middle stump. Kohli reviews. Didn't review immediately so that should rule out inside edge. It looks...quite out. He was looking to close the face on it as it came in from outside off...and it is clipping leg stump. That will remain umpire's call and Kohli is gone. It hit the flap of the front pad. Holder is ecstatic. West Indies back in it once again 162/4
    83.1 extra bounce does the trick, excellent from Holder. Rahane has jabbed this straight to gully and he has to walk back without a century. He was looking to play freely so instinctively went to play this delivery which hit a spot and took off. Rahane got the shoulder of the bat and lobbed straight to Shai Hope. End of a wonderful innings nonetheless. West Indies have the start they were looking for. 314/5
    86.3 out in the 90s again! This is an excellent catch by Shimron Hetmyer at cover point. Bounce off the deck from Gabriel, there was width but not so much that Pant could freely cut. He looked to punch this instead, hit it very well but Hetmyer threw himself to his right and plucked an excellent catch. The ball was travelling and it needed a very, very good effort to not only get to the ball but also hold on. He fumbled a bit, but luckily for him, the ball got stuck between his hands and ear, then recovered well to complete the catch. 322/7
    83.3 given out and Jadeja doesn't bother to review. This is full, once again came back in a long way in the air. Jadeja plays down the wrong line and the ball beats the inside edge to rap him on the pad. Umpire Ian Gould didn't take long to raise his finger. Hawkeye shows this would've hit top of leg. The game is back in the balance, what a dream start this has been for West Indies. Century in the previous game, zero here. Oh, cricket is a leveler, isn't it? 314/6

    106.4 sneaks back into the gap between bat and pad to flatten middle stump. Went wide of the crease and angled this in, moved back off the seam. Ashwin may have been impacted by the knock he took off the previous delivery, so didn't move forward instinctively. Played at this from the crease, just felt for the delivery and played down the wrong line. Dream ball for any fast bowler to see the middle stump knocked back. That will be lunch on day three 367/10
    94.4 five wickets for Holder and this is a cracker to get rid of Kuldeep. The off stump cartwheels, and as a fast bowler, you can't ask for a better sight. Lands this at length from round the wicket, jags back in off a length to defeat Kuldeep's tentative push, misses it completely and hears the stumps rattle. 334/8
    99.2 slow turn, took a while to get to Umesh as he got a thick edge on the cut, straightforward catch by Hamilton. Umesh looked to smash the cover off the ball. The keeper fumbled but somehow managed to hang on in the end. 339/9

    0.2 is that out? Yes! It's raucous in the stadium and you can barely hear the nick as Brathwaite stabs down leg side at a length ball. It's tickled the inside edge and Pant has gone two-handed with a dive to his left to take this. What a start for India 0/1
    3.3 soft signal is out for a catch at slip. Powell has pushed with hard hands at a length ball turning away from him. Rahane lunges low to his left and takes this from close to the ground. Looks like the two ring fingers are under the ball, but you can't tell for sure if it's hit the turf...remember, there has to be conclusive evidence of the ball touching grass. And there isn't conclusive evidence. The screen flashes out and India have a second. Nicely lured by Ashwin, that drifted in and forced him to play unlike the last one which he had left. Powell not too happy with the decision. But going by the rules in such cases, that is the correct decision. 6/2
    13.4 guides it straight to slip! West Indies crumbling and their most solid batsman on the day is gone. Jadeja hits the same line on off stump, but he pulls the length back a touch and this allows the ball to turn. Hope follows with his hands and opens the face as it spins away. Rahane with a comfortable catch to his right 45/4
    12.6 taken at point! Oh Hetmyer. It's a repeat performance of the last match. Chucks his bat across the line of one that spins away from him on off stump. It's an ugly heave. Off the edge and straight to point. Just when it looked like he had figured out the spinners, he manufactures a wicket of his own. That's Kuldeep's tenth wicket of the series. West Indies have lost three wickets without erasing the deficit 45/3

    38.5 plays all around this one. Was looking to sweep, then looked to turn this to square leg, but is beaten by the straighter one. This would've crashed into middle and leg. Ambris reviews though. There was some glove but after it hit the pad. Hit on the flap alright, but he was so far back inside the crease that the ball didn't have much distance to travel. Also the leg stump was visible at the point of impact. As far as decisions go, it can't get more straightforward than that. 109/8

    24.6 bowled off the pad! That big inswinger does it again. Chase looks to defend a middle and off stump line. It pings off the inside edge, hits the thigh guard and knocks out off stump. Yadav really using that inswinger well today. Eighth wicket of the game for him 68/5
    26.1 another one off the pad! Another inswinger, and once again Umesh finds himself on a hat-trick! Dowrich with a short stride forward as this swings in outside off. He manages an inside edge too just like Chase. It hits off stump again off the pad 70/6
    36.6 has he got him? There's a big appeal, not given. Fizz and turn for Jadeja. Ian Gould not convinced, Holder doesn't seem worried. India have reviewed. Holder prods forward to defend but is beaten by the bite off the pitch. Did it kiss the edge or not is the question. Yes, ultraedge confirms a spike, so there was a very faint nick, enough for the third umpire to over-turn the onfield decision and Holder is gone! Pant fumbled just a bit but managed to hold on. 108/7

    45.2 off stump goes out. That's a subtle deception from Ashwin. Wide of the crease as he bowls this at a length. He looks to defend for the one that comes in but this holds its line to go past the outside edge 126/9
    46.1 gets it! Ten wickets in a Test for Umesh. Slings it in at a length just outside off. Gabriel plants the front leg into the leg side and heaves at it. Gets a big inside edge onto off stump 127/10
