India in West Indies Test Series - 1st Test

West Indies v India

India won by 63 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

3.5

Rampaul to Vijay, OUT, there goes Vijay, driving in the air, and that brings about his downfall, front foot does not come out to the pitch of the ball and he ends up pushing uppishly, ball travels comfortably to Bishoo at backward point, this shot has served him well ... in the IPL, he is gone now though

M Vijay c Bishoo b Rampaul 8 (19m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

India 15/1   A Mukund 5* (12b 1x4)   R Rampaul 1.5-0-7-1

11.6

Rampaul to Mukund, OUT, that is the end of Mukund! Ravi Rampaul it is again, who bowls him off an inside edge, it was bowled closer to off, a lot closer and had Mukund pushing forward, but he went to force it through extra cover and found leg stump out of its ground off a huge inside edge, West Indies have removed the openers for very little, India have a lot of work up ahead

A Mukund b Rampaul 11 (56m 41b 1x4 0x6) SR: 26.82

India 30/2   R Dravid 8* (20b 1x4)   R Rampaul 6-1-13-2

22.1

Bishoo to Laxman, OUT, and he strikes first ball, Laxman edges to slip, gently flighted and lures Laxman in to a loose drive, did not get the feet moving much, well, he never does that a lot anyways, the ball turned sharply from off stump and took the edge to go at a very comfortable height to slip, West Indies weren't expecting this one, they are delighted

VVS Laxman c Sammy b Bishoo 12 (47m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.70

India 64/3   R Dravid 29* (51b 5x4)   D Bishoo 0.1-0-0-1

25.3

Edwards to Kohli, OUT, that is the end of Virat's debut innings, he is gone nibbling at one outside off and Baugh has gobbled up the appetiser before lunch, was some distance from Virat, not much need to play at it, but for once Virat pressed forward, and got so close to the ball that he had to play at it, and ended up getting a healthy edge through to the keeper, a happy bunch of West Indians will take lunch,

V Kohli c †Baugh b Edwards 4 (13m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

India 69/4   R Dravid 30* (61b 5x4)   FH Edwards 8.3-0-31-1

26.6

Bishoo to Dravid, OUT, Dravid had got a start, which is nothing new, but he has thrown it away, which is something unusual, similar dismissal to Laxman's, again Bishoo threw it up in the air, full enough for Dravid to launch in to the forcing drive and slip gets more catching practice, Dravid is disappointed, waves the bat in frustration as he walks back

R Dravid c Sammy b Bishoo 40 (106m 67b 7x4 0x6) SR: 59.70

India 83/5   SK Raina 4* (3b 1x4)   D Bishoo 3-2-10-2

28.2

Bishoo to Dhoni, OUT, Bishoo is on a roll and the men around him have edges flying towards them, Dhoni has departed to a nothing shot, half-forward to a tossed up ball, just pushing the bat out, the ball gripped and bounced high, Dhoni could do nothing as it took the shoulder of the bat and lobbed up towards gully

MS Dhoni c Simmons b Bishoo 0 (9m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 85/6   SK Raina 6* (9b 1x4)   D Bishoo 3.2-2-11-3

56.2

Edwards to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, what a catch from Bishoo, West Indies are celebrating, Harbhajan was set up for the hook and has fallen to that shot, it was a bouncer way outside off, Bhajji could not resist for once and went for the hook instinctively, the edge swirled in front of deep square leg from where Bishoo ran in with gusto, the ball seemed to be dying on him but he dived to his left while running to take the catch, superb take, Harbhajan has the look of a man who has thrown away a hundred

Harbhajan Singh c Bishoo b Edwards 70 (120m 74b 10x4 1x6) SR: 94.59

India 231/7   SK Raina 79* (105b 15x4)   FH Edwards 13.2-1-48-2

58.2

Edwards to Kumar, OUT, that is plumb, and PK is gone, he shuffled across to a quick inswinging delivery that beat him for pace and angle, right in front of middle and leg and he is a goner

P Kumar lbw b Edwards 4 (10m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

India 236/8   SK Raina 80* (110b 15x4)   FH Edwards 14.2-1-49-3

60.4

Edwards to Mishra, OUT, that is the end of Mishra, who is disappointed at the decision, the short ball has got him, he could do nothing about it, it just climbed in to him and kept getting bigger and bigger, he tried to fend it away, but got a glove on it from where it lobbed to first slip, wonder why Mishra was looking so cross, he had no reason to be, maybe it was a bit of arm guard as well

A Mishra c Sarwan b Edwards 6 (14m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

India 246/9   SK Raina 82* (113b 15x4)   FH Edwards 15.4-1-56-4

61.2

Rampaul to Raina, OUT, that is the end of the Indian innings, Raina has found Bishoo on the deep square leg boundary, got too much across to the back of a length ball and pulled it straight to Bishoo who has timed his leap neatly to pluck the ball

SK Raina c Bishoo b Rampaul 82 (167m 115b 15x4 0x6) SR: 71.30

India 246/10   I Sharma 0* (2b)   R Rampaul 18.2-2-59-3
