Harbhajan Singh to Simmons, OUT, Sarwan could be in big trouble here! He is, he's gone, run out! Simmons called Sarwan for a quick single after playing the ball towards short square leg. Sarwan isn't a quick runner and he was slow while setting off. The fielder from midwicket swooped on the ball, picked it up with one hand and threw it back to Parthiv. As Sarwan attempted to slide his bat, it got stuck in the ground and he dropped it. Once that happened, he had no chance. He might have been out even if he had his bat. He was looking so fluent, big blow for West Indies
