India in West Indies ODI Series - 3rd ODI

West Indies v India

India won by 3 wickets (with 22 balls remaining)

1.1

MM Patel to Edwards, no run, and bowls a perfectly-pitched delivery to Kirk Edwards, beaten comprehensively outside off stump

1.2

MM Patel to Edwards, OUT, caught behind! Edwards nicks this to Parthiv, who takes a low catch, and there's a bit of a delay before umpire Ian Gould raises the finger. Perfect length once again just outside off, Edwards pushed forward at it, playing away from his body, sizeable edge, tame dismissal

KA Edwards c †PA Patel b MM Patel 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

1.3

MM Patel to Sarwan, 1 wide, Munaf is off target this time, straying down leg side, Sarwan gets inside the line

1.3

MM Patel to Sarwan, no run, fuller ball outside off, Sarwan moves forward and plays to cover

1.4

MM Patel to Sarwan, no run, Sarwan moves across to defend towards the bowler this time

1.5

MM Patel to Sarwan, no run, a bit too straight from Munaf, allowing Sarwan to play off his pads towards midwicket

1.6

MM Patel to Sarwan, no run, good line and length just outside off, Sarwan stays in his crease and lifts his bat out of the way

West Indies 1/1   MM Patel 1-0-1-1

3.1

MM Patel to Simmons, no run, Munaf the metronome hits a good length around off once again, Simmons defends off the back foot

3.2

MM Patel to Simmons, FOUR, and the metronome goes missing, bowling one on the pads, Simmons takes advantage by glancing to the fine-leg boundary

3.3

MM Patel to Simmons, 1 run, straight line once again, Simmons moves across to flick the ball through midwicket

3.4

MM Patel to Sarwan, no run, better line and length from Munaf, back to his off-stump staple, Sarwan stays in his crease and blocks

3.5

MM Patel to Sarwan, 1 run, nicely run! Sarwan plays the ball with soft hands towards backward point and Simmons initiated the call, and moved decisively and quickly

MM Patel to Simmons, no run, Simmons moves forward and drives a length ball to the fielder at cover

West Indies 8/1   MM Patel 2-0-7-1

5.1

MM Patel to Simmons, no run, good length ball outside off, far more carry for Munaf than there is for Praveen, the batsman lets it go

5.2

MM Patel to Simmons, no run, Simmons presses forward and outside off to defend towards cover

5.3

MM Patel to Simmons, FOUR, short ball and Simmons attempts to pull and makes rather awkward contact, turning his head away as the ball hit bat, he managed to clear the in field though and the ball trickled to the boundary

5.4

MM Patel to Simmons, SIX, there's no awkwardness about this! Simmons lines up a length delivery and lofts it with a wonderfully straight bat over long-on, first six of the day, Simmons needs to carry on for long today, that's his failing, looks so good at the start and gives it away after 40-50

5.5

MM Patel to Simmons, 2 runs, punched crisply off the back foot through cover

5.6

MM Patel to Simmons, no run, short of a length on the hips, Simmons glances towards square leg

7.5

MM Patel to Simmons, no run, good length in that channel outside off stump, played towards short cover

7.6

MM Patel to Simmons, FOUR, shot! Simmons presses forward, and towards the off to pull a short ball from outside off over midwicket, the pace on this surface is far too slow to bowl that length

MM Patel to Sarwan, no run, fuller and straighter ball, Sarwan drives but mid-on moves to his left to cut it off

10.6

MM Patel to Sarwan, 1 run, Sarwan moves forward to drive and mis-times it, perhaps trying to hit it a bit too hard, the fielder at mid-off dives to his left to keep the batsmen to one

29.1

MM Patel to Sammy, no run, and he hits a good length, which makes the batsman defend

29.2

MM Patel to Sammy, no run, another appeal from Munaf and Parthiv after Sammy tries to play a cover drive to a length ball that moved away from him and was beaten, there was no edge there

29.3

MM Patel to Sammy, OUT, there was certainly an edge this time! Munaf pitched the ball short of a length around off and moved it away a touch, Sammy was squared up on the back foot and poked tentatively at it, Parthiv didn't bother with an appeal this time, started celebrating immediately after catching it. Sammy looks such a dejected figure on his walk back

47.1

MM Patel to Roach, 1 run, Roach clips the ball off his pads and the fielder at short fine leg saves four by diving to his right

MM Patel to Russell, no run, the slower ball and Russell's attempted heave is mis-timed towards the bowler
