    8.1 ripper! Play that, Bumrah says. Powell tries. He tries so hard, but all he can do is get squared up and nick off to first slip. A 145 kph snorther from India's spearhead. It pitches on and around leg stump. Then moves away off the seam. That puts the left-hander in an awkward spot, because he has no choice but to defend this delivery. Phew. That's basically the rudest wake up call ever. Rohit takes a superb grab too, moving quickly to his right, which is usually the wrong side for a first slipper, and taking it around chest-height. 38/2
    5.5 eeeeeeeepic catch from Dhoni. The moment the ball hits the top edge, he starts racing towards the backward square leg boundary, tracking it over his shoulder and even putting in a full-length dive. Is that a statement to the selectors? He doesn't really dive nowaways but a day after he's dropped from the T20 team, he pulls out all the stops. Looks 10 years younger as he hunts the ball down and gets India their first wicket. Top bouncer from Bumrah too, climbing up towards Hemraj's throat, giving him no room. He looks like a batsman who doesn't trust his defence and so will always go for the riskier option to get out of trouble. In this case, that is the hook shot 25/1
    43.5 yorker! Through him! And those stumps are a mess! Pune roars as the No. 1 ranked bowler in the world takes out the last remaining threat in the opposition. Hope couldn't do anything about it. How could he, when it keeps tailing in so sharply. And late. The bat comes down in a last ditch effort but by then the stumps are rattled. Splendid innings from Hope. He was especially good against spin today, and for a strokemaker like that to bat so freely on a slow pitch, is something special 227/8
    13.1 was there an edge? Definite noise, and yes, Samuels walks off. A brute of a short delivery from Khaleel, very straight and tight, absolutely tucks him up and pushes him back, grazes the glove as Samuels tries to get on top of it and Dhoni gets down in front to snaffle a low catch. And look at Khaleel take off with arms spread wide. This wicket clearly means something to him 55/3
    19.3 has there been a stumping here? Dhoni quietly raises one hand up and the umpires go upstairs, but he should be fine here. Hetmyer gets down for a big slog from outside off. Has the backfoot come off? Nope. But, hang on. It may not be in the air but it seems to be on the line. The second angle seems to further confirm this. India celebrate. We should have the red letters OUT.. Yup, off he goes. Nicely done by Kuldeep, pitching it up and inviting him to go big but taking it away from him with his angle 111/4
    23.4 huge ungainly heave in the leg side, against the turn. And not only is he beaten by the turn, he's also done in by the pace. The slow, delicious pace of Kuldeep. The ball seems to strike the outside edge of the very bottom of the bat - clear signs he's too early into the shot - and it hangs in the air, to the right of Dhoni. Waiting to be pouched. And Rohit, at first slip, dives across in spectacular fashion and holds on to a stunner! What reactions from India's vice-captain! 121/5
    38.3 chips tamely to long-off. Holder gets too ambitious and tries to heave this back of a length delivery over the in-field. Perhaps didn't get behind ti enough as he can only find the toe end of the bat 197/6
    41.3 goes for the big one - India would have been hoping he would and Allen doesn't disappoint. The ball goes straight up, because he isn't close enough to it to slog against the turn. And Pant is waiting at long-on to complete an artfully crafted dismissal. It's trademark Chahal really. Toss the ball up, let the big-hitter go for the big hit across the line, then smile for the cameras 217/7
    49.5 lbw in front of middle, but Nurse goes for a review. More out of hope than anything because he has moved well across his stumps and this is a perfect yorker from Bumrah too. Ball-tracking shows three reds and Shamsuddin's decision stands 283/9

    1.6 ripper! Absolute ripper! There is precious little Rohit can do. It's pitched up, but not so much that it is a half-volley and the batsman can easily push forward for the drive. It's in that inbetween length that makes them freeze in the crease. And Holder's skill is such that he makes the ball swing away as well. And that's enough to beat the outside edge and crash into middle stump. What a sight. What a glorious sight for the WI captain, who for some reason, is always a target for everyone's criticism. This man is pure gold, people. Believe it 9/1
    17.2 Dhawan tries to force the pace and gets pinned in front. The boundaries had dried up, and knowing Dhawan's temperament, you could see this coming. No turn as it comes on with the arm and pins him in front of middle as he gets down to sweep. His fifteenth dismissal in 50 innings against offspin 88/2

    41.3 bowled him! That should be the game. Kohli goes big, across the line. Looks for a big pull but the ball was drifting into him, and as a result, gets tucked up. Misses the ball altogether as it goes straight through and crashes into middle. Kohli had to take a chance against Samuels, and so he did. And he pays for it with his wicket. Top innings from the captain 220/7
    25.4 plays on! So the extra pace works. West Indies' plan works. Rayudu was looking so comfy against spin. But here, with McCoy, and his steepling bounce, he shifts on the back foot, tries to block it behind square on the off side, but only ends up breaking his own stumps 135/3
    31.1 huuuge appeal for a caught behind but umpire Shamsuddin is unmoved and so West INdies go for a review. The excitement is the result of a ball slipping down leg and Pant shaping to sweep, while standing up. It's a great credit to Hope that he collect the ball, whilst being blinded by the batsman. But we'll need UltraEdge to confirm this call. And it says there's a feather as the ball passes glove. Another great review by West Indies. 172/4
    35.5 caught behind! Excellent bowling from Holder. That innate ability he has to get bounce off any pitch has Dhoni falling rather tamely. He's looking to ease the ball square on the off side, but the ball kicks up more than he expects and he gets a good chunk through to the keeper. West Indies have the game in the balance again, right on the stroke of drinks 194/5
    40.2 holes out to sweeper cover. Pressure mounting on India now. Bhuvneshwar throws his hands at the sight of width and slaps it over the in-field. But nowhere enough meat on it to take it past the fielder in the deep 215/6

    42.6 the short ball does it against Chahal. He isn't comfortable against that length at all. Swings almost instinctively at this one and gets a top-edge that deep fine leg settles under 225/8
    45.6 that's another one gone. Or so it seems. Khaleel walks off. Drags the backfoot out as he swings wildly across and makes no contact. Easy stumping for Hope 237/9
    47.4 that will be all. Bumrah caught at slip. Tries to get cheeky and open the face but the bounce is a little disconcerting and he gets an edge to Holder 240/10
