India 3/0   R Rampaul 1-0-3-0
3.1

Rampaul to PA Patel, no run, another lazy shot from Parthiv, he doesn't move forward enough to the pitch of the ball and then drives on the up. Rampaul's angle takes it away from him and he misses by some distance.

3.2

Rampaul to PA Patel, FOUR, fuller, in Parthiv country, and he deals with it with an up-and-over carved drive over point. Very well timed, nearly a six that.

3.3

Rampaul to PA Patel, no run, Rampaul responds with a shorter ball, Parthiv hangs back and defends to the off side. No chance for a single.

3.4

Rampaul to PA Patel, 1 run, well-fielded by the stumps. Length ball on the stumps, and Parthiv absolutely whacks it right back. The stumps come in the way and stop a sure four.

3.5

Rampaul to Kohli, 1 run, Sammy prowls at point. Kohli is away, staying on the back foot and dabbing backward of point and Sammy keeps him down to a single

3.6

Rampaul to PA Patel, no run, yorker of sorts on off stump, Parthiv digs it out to the off side.

India 19/1   R Rampaul 2-0-9-0
15.1

Rampaul to Sharma, 1 leg bye, slow bouncer, Rohit is completely off-colour today as he fails to spot another one and misses the pull. He is hit on the ribs as the ball pops away towards gully.

15.2

Rampaul to Badrinath, 1 run, Badri backs away a touch to make his own room and steers straight to third man for another single.

15.3

Rampaul to Sharma, 1 run, slower ball at 69.7 mph, Rohit awaits in earnest and eventually guides it through point for one.

15.4

Rampaul to Badrinath, 1 no ball, Samuels has taken a screamer and Badri's innings is over. Or is it? It might be a no-ball! What a tragedy! Stunner at cover, it initially got the crowd and the lovely ladies in the stands on their feet. It was over-pitched on off stump, and Badri slotted the cover-drive powerfully if somewhat uppishly, but Samuels moved rapidly to latch on as he stretched to his right. All goes waste. Rampaul has over-stepped, the third umpire says belatedly.

15.4

Rampaul to Badrinath, FOUR, another near-catch, another stupendous effort in the deep, this time from Nurse. Here's what happened: Badri stayed in the crease and got under a length ball on off stump, and tried to hoist it over extra-cover. He couldn't get as much elevation as he wanted, and it seemed set to land a couple of feet inside the ropes. Nurse at wide long-off, hurried across, dived full-length and got the ball in his grasp as he sprawled forward. He kept sliding along, and the momentum was taking him towards the ropes. He tried to flick it away before touching the rope, but replays say he might have touched. It's been ruled a four, which is a little weird. That was either six, or two. Might have touched the ground before touching the rope.

15.5

Rampaul to Badrinath, 1 run, Badri plays the glide down to third man once again, some luck going his way here. Another single

15.6

Rampaul to Sharma, SIX, majestic from Rohit, skips down the pitch to West Indies' fastest bowler, converts a decent ball into a length offering, and slams it down the ground for a big six.

India 102/4   R Rampaul 3-0-23-0
19.1

Rampaul to Pathan, 1 wide, too wide outside off, Yusuf lets it go.

19.1

Rampaul to Pathan, 1 run, full toss, swerving into the pads, and whipped without timing to midwicket for one.

19.2

Rampaul to Harbhajan Singh, SIX, oh boy, Harbhajan has sent that into downtown Trinidad. Length from Rampaul, gets the yorkers in mate! Harbhajan isn't complaining, as he swings merrily over midwicket.

19.3

Rampaul to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, full toss outside off, Harbhajan is confused by the height and mistimes into the covers for one

19.4

Rampaul to Pathan, 1 run, that's the length. Perfect yorker at 84 mph, and Yusuf digs it out to midwicket for one.

19.5

Rampaul to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, superb hands from Harbhajan. Rampaul misses the yorker by a foot. It ends up a fulltoss on the middle and leg, Harbhajan whips it with unbecoming felicity and redirects it to the midwicket fence.

19.6

Rampaul to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, Harbhajan looks to chop away outside off, and under-edges to the keeper and ambles across. Fletcher collects and throws the stumps down at the striker's end, but Yusuf makes it. Might have wanted to throw at the other end. India finish with a strong score for this pitch.
