    4.1 superbly taken by Dhoni! good length on middle stump, Agarkar gets the ball to move away from Gayle who sticks his glove at it, big deflection, Dhoni dives to his left this time takes a tumbling catch 14/2
    4 Zaheer gets lucky! similar to the previous ball, drifting down leg, this time Chanderpaul, unfortunately for him, gets some bat on it, Dhoni dives to his right and takes it comfortably. No doubt about the decision for umpire Brian Jerling 14/1
    14.3 another tame dismissal! good length delivery, straightens after pitching, Sarwan tries to fend it off his pads, gets the leading edge and the ball lobs in the opposite direction, straight to Uthappa at second slip 53/4
    14 soft dismissal! well fortunes have changed for Pathan! pitched outside off, Lara gets forward,the ball suddenly stops on him, plays it too early and lobs it straight to Pathan who catches it low 53/3
    17 another one goes down! good length on middle stump, wasn't short enough to pull, Bravo shapes to pull it away in true Caribbean style with his left leg in the air, messes up with the placement and hits it straight to Harbhajan at midwicket 57/5
    17.5 and it doesn't get any better for Windies! full, waiting to be spanked past the covers, Pollard doesn't use his feet well, gets a thin outside edge to Dhoni who tumbles and pouches it to his right 61/6
    18.1 India are gobbling this all too easily! Munaf bowls it straight, Ramdin was in two minds to get forward or stay back, chooses the former, gets a thick edge and Sehwag takes it at first slip with both hands, diving to his right 62/8
    18 Pathan bags another! Samuels tries to play across the line, gets rapped on the top half of his front pad, easy decision for Jerling 62/7

    24.2 another one bites the dust! short, drifting in, Smith tries to pull but plays a little too early, the ball gets the top edge and hits it down Dinesh Karthik's throat at midwicket 80/9
    25.5 and it's all over! Kumble pushes it full and straight, Taylor shoulders arms expecting it to turn away, misjudges it, gets trapped right in front of the stumps and another easy ruling for Jerling 85/10
