    12.2 first wicket goes! A very soft dismissal, banged in short, Chanderpaul moves into position to pull, ball hurries on him, his head goes one way, eyes the other, and all he can end up doing is cramping himself into a loose shot that spoons up in the air and Sehwag moves in from square leg to take a dolly, Munaf gets a vital breakthrough, Chanderpaul goes, and India must capitalise on this 44/1
    15.5 Bit of juggle in the slips and a team-effort to get the wicket. Morton flashes at one outside the off stump, the extra bounce produces the edge and the ball flies to left of Dravid who fails to take it cleanly, the ball bounds off his palms but Dhoni moves quickly to his right to take the catch. 58/3
    14.6 edged and taken! This lands on a sweet spot outside off stump, pitches and kicks a little, Sarwan is taken by the bounce as he looks to cut, the ball cramped him as well and he can only feather an edge through to Dhoni, Munaf strikes again 52/2
    33.6 And they were two. Well-flighted delivery, on the middle stump line, Hinds shapes to work it away across the line, gets an leading edge and Harbhajan takes an easy return catch. A long vigil from Hinds comes to an end. 118/8
    18.3 Gets his line and length right this time and is rewarded with a wicket. But Samuels also helped him to an extent with a nothing shot. It was a length-delivery, on the off stump and came in a touch. Samuels stays back at the crease, his bat comes down in an angle and late at that and is caught right in front. 63/4
    21.2 Another one goes down. It landed on a length, just outside the off stump and comes in with the natural left-armer's angle. Gayle is caught at the crease, waves his bat across the line, doesn't connect and is plumb in front. Another nothing shot. 70/5
    22.5 Inside-edge onto the pads but given out lbw. Fullish delivery, on the off and middle stump line, coming in a touch and Smith pushes at it outside the line and gets an inside edge but not spotted by the umpire. 83/6
    27.3 stumped! After getting nearly out, Bravo tries repeating another adventure down the track and is decieved by a doosra. His back feet is on the line, and instead of dragging his feet back to safety, he tries to turn and get his bat inside the crease and that gives enough time for Dhoni to whip off the bails. 96/7

    39.2 he's gone! Tossed up outside off, its the arm ball, Baugh is leaden-footed as he has been for most of his innings, stands there and pokes at it, the ball kisses the edge and pops into Dravid's hands, he takes a good catch and West Indies are nine down, we have a cracker here 145/9
    40.6 all over, thats it! A quick, good length delivery on middle and leg, Collymore is just rooted at the crease and gets hit in line, that one did keep slightly low, looks likely to take leg stump, every Indian goes up in appeal and the umpire slowly raises his finger! Sreesanth gets the final wicket, India have won by 16 runs, they've done their shot at the finals no harm 146/10
