India tour of West Indies, 1st ODI: West Indies v India at Port of Spain, Jun 6, 2011
India won by 4 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)
6 June 2011 (50-over match)

Kumar to Simmons, OUT, horror shot from Simmons, he has combusted with an ugly-looking top-edge that's ended in mid-off's hands. He had decided early that he was advancing down the track, and Praveen had enough time to see him and drop it short. Simmons then threw his hands at an attempted pull, though he was in no position for it. It took the top-edge and looped into Harbhajan's hands.

LMP Simmons c Harbhajan Singh b Kumar 6 (25m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 26.08

West Indies 23/1   KA Edwards 9* (14b 1x4)   P Kumar 3.1-0-8-1

MM Patel to DM Bravo, OUT, and gone. Munaf has nailed Darren Bravo with another nagging ball, short of driving length outside off. Poor shot from Darren Bravo, again he doesn't move forward or back and just throws the bat hard at it. The ball bounds off the outside edge, to Rohit at the lone widish slip and he takes it really well as it flies towards his head. He takes it with the fingers pointing up, even as he falls back.

DM Bravo c Sharma b MM Patel 4 (6m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 28/2   KA Edwards 10* (16b 1x4)   MM Patel 3.5-1-19-1

Harbhajan Singh to Edwards, OUT, and Edwards' woes against spin have come to an end. He's scarcely read a ball today from the tweakers. Harbhajan lands the floater short of a length, Edwards leans back and looks to play for the offbreak, and ends up top-edging a pulled whip that lobs up and lands in Kohli's hand at slip. Poor, poor shot.

KA Edwards c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 21 (78m 45b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

West Indies 59/3   RR Sarwan 18* (35b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 2.2-0-5-1

MM Patel to Sarwan, OUT, what a poor ball to lose a wicket to. Munaf has been concentrating on the channel of complete certainty outside leg stump so far this over. This time Sarwan tries to glance what would have been a wide, and ends up nidking it fine. Parthiv does really well to dive away to his left and pouch it. Sars c Patel b Patel.

RR Sarwan c †PA Patel b MM Patel 56 (114m 94b 5x4 0x6) SR: 59.57

West Indies 141/4   MN Samuels 39* (60b 3x4 1x6)   MM Patel 8-1-41-2

Raina to Samuels, OUT, Raina does what he specialises in, producing a huge wicket out of no where. Another wicket goes to an ordinary ball. It was a flat, short, gentle offbreak on middle. Samuels looked to move across and pull it away, but it somehow slipped through off the inside edge, onto his left thing, in between his legs, and clattered the furniture.

MN Samuels b Raina 55 (90m 75b 3x4 2x6) SR: 73.33

West Indies 177/5   DJ Bravo 19* (13b 1x6)   SK Raina 4.4-0-20-1

Harbhajan Singh to DJ Bravo, OUT, and Harbhajan's got his former Mumbai Indians team-mate. Lovely tossed up delivery on middle stump, and it held it's line. Bravo tried to work it to the leg side, but he wasn't to the pitch of it, and it snapped away past the outside edge even as he over-balanced. Parthiv's day has kept improving, and he collects this nicely and whips the bails off.

DJ Bravo st †PA Patel b Harbhajan Singh 22 (26m 20b 0x4 1x6) SR: 110.00

West Indies 191/6   CS Baugh 10* (6b 1x4)   Harbhajan Singh 8.5-0-28-2

Harbhajan Singh to Baugh, OUT, Harbhajan's got an lbw with the last ball of his spell. He's been appealing for them all day! This was a super-fast delivery fired in flat and straight from round the wicket. Did that land inside the mat? No. Poor decision from umpire Nero. Baugh was hustled into the sweep and missed, but once it pitches outside leg, it can't be out.

CS Baugh lbw b Harbhajan Singh 16 (21m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 94.11

West Indies 198/7   DJG Sammy 1* (2b)   Harbhajan Singh 10-0-32-3

Kumar to Sammy, OUT, Praveen's taken Sammy out. You don't get lbws plumber than those. Praveen delivered a low full toss that was headed for the base of middle stump. Sammy got across and tried to work it over to the leg side, and ended up looking like a deer caught in the headlights. Caught palpably in front, and he's walking back now.

DJG Sammy lbw b Kumar 4 (17m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

West Indies 204/8   R Rampaul 2* (2b)   P Kumar 8.5-1-28-2

Raina to Bishoo, OUT, and gone. Fired in full and on the stumps, Bishoo goes for a reverse-sweep and misses. Another easy lbw call. Or is it? The ball was not entirely inside the mat, but it was still a fair call from the umpire. Hitting off stump.

D Bishoo lbw b Raina 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 206/9   R Rampaul 3* (5b)   SK Raina 6-0-23-2
