    3.1 cut straight to point! Length ball outside off, and he rides the bounce to cut. But he can't play it over the infield, and Hetmyer has no trouble pocketing that catch. Big wicket for West Indies 15/1
    8.4 big appeal for lbw but not given. Full on middle, and skidding through as Dhawan misses the defense. Holder reviews. Replays say impact is on leg stump, and no touch of the bat. Aaaand the ball is hitting the top of leg stump! Dhawan is gone! 40/2

    32.2 swings all across the line and loses his middle stump. Earlier in the innings, he was playing balls like these - tossed up outside off - through the covers. Here, in the search of quick runs, he goes for a slog sweep and the slower pace from Nurse does him in completely. Good, composed half-century from Rayudu, at a time when India are searching for a long-term No. 4 179/3
    40.2 through him! Debut wicket for McCoy, and what a scalp! Slower ball, length on off, and going through the batsman's defense. Too close to Dhoni's body, and it's gone between bat and pad. Takes the top of off stump, and now it's time for Rishabh Pant 222/4
    43.3 swings all across the line and gets pinned in front of middle. Umpire Nandan raises the finger but Pant reviews. He was done in by the slower pace. And it doesn't bounce as high for the cross-bat shot. Unless there's a nick here, he will have to go, and he will be burning a review as well. UltraEdge shows no bat and ball-tracking says three reds. Yer outta here 248/5
    48.5 taken at long-on! And it's a steepler as well. Good work from Kieran Powell. He's on the boundary edge. He tracks it all the way, settles under it, and Jadeja perishes in pursuit of quick runs. Big heave against a slower ball outside off and that lack of pace does him in 307/6

    6.1 taken at deep midwicket. Powell's good on the pull and he is forced to play that shot - Shami adjusting to the batsman stepping out of his crease and cramping the left-hander for room. Should Powell have gone through with an aggressive shot? The new ball is the best chance to score runs on this slow pitch so perhaps he can be given a little leeway. But at this level, and so early in the innings, you shouldn't be picking the deep fielders out. After all, in the first 10, there can be only two out there and if you're giving catching practice to them, then there's something seriously wrong 36/1
    9.3 ripper! And yet Kuldeep doesn't do any more than present a googly in line with the stumps. Everything else is on the batsman. Hemraj doesn't pick it. He plays for the ball turning away from him. And it's a lazy shot, the bat pushing away from the body, giving plenty of room for the ball to sneak through and shatter middle 64/2

    11.6 googly does him Samuels is left with bat hanging well away from body, for Kuldeep to sneak through. The ball hit the top of the bails. The umpires weren't sure and needed to go upstairs - that might be a rare 'bowled' dismissal adjudicated by the third umpire. 78/3
    31.5 Hetmyer is distraught, Kohli is ecstatic India needed this wicket badly, and a half-tracker gets them one. Hetmyer has hit plenty of those into cow corner, but somehow, he just top edges this one. The ball goes sky-high and settles into Kohli's hands at short cover, who ran in and had plenty of time to set himself up to catch it 221/4
    37.3 googly does it again! brilliance all around from India. Good captaincy to have a slip for Kuldeep, great bowling with a perfect googly that opened up Rovman - he had no clue which way the ball was turning - and he hung his bat out. Smart catch at slip. India are back in it. 253/5
    47.2 Holder's run-out! And Vizag roars! Poor stuff from West Indies, after staying so calm, they lose their captain over a silly mistake. Hope defends a legbreak on middle to cover and then takes a couple of steps out. Holder sees that and starts haring down the pitch only to look up at his partner suddenly standing still. Then he looks around and realises Rayudu already has the ball in his hand and underarms it through to the bowler to break the stumps 300/6
    49.4 caught at third man playing the scoop! Nurse does well - predicting this would be near the blockhole and would have enough pace for him to play a dinky shot like that. But it carries to deep third man, and Rayudu holds onto a high-pressure catch. 315/7
