1.1

Sharma to Powell, no run, Ishant slides it on a length outside off and it holds its line, Powell carefully watches it through to the keeper

1.2

Sharma to Powell, no run, pushing it full outside off, watches it through to the keeper

1.3

Sharma to Powell, no run, tempting length there, full outside off, there to drive but Powell doesn't fall for it, leaves it be

1.4

Sharma to Powell, no run, a little closer to the stumps this time, shoulders arms and lets it go through

1.5

Sharma to Powell, no run, good length a fraction outside off, gets to the pitch and judges it well, shouldering arms at just the right time to let it through

1.6

Sharma to Powell, no run, back of a length on the off and Powell plays at it this time, gets back and jabs at it, falls just in front of gully

West Indies 0/0   I Sharma 1-1-0-0
3.1

Sharma to Powell, no run, short ball, gets big, but nicely defended in front of his face

3.2

Sharma to Powell, no run, angled across him, left alone

3.3

Sharma to Powell, 3 runs, overpitched, driven past cover, solid start for Powell

3.4

Sharma to Barath, no run, moves across, defends this in front of off

3.5

Sharma to Barath, 2 runs, sliced off the outer half of the bat, past gully, they will get a couple here, but not in control of the shot

3.6

Sharma to Barath, no run, moves across to cover the line outside off, plays with an open face towards point

West Indies 11/0   I Sharma 2-1-5-0
5.1

Sharma to Barath, 2 runs, overpitched, covers the line, then drives it with an open face, in full control of the shot

5.2

Sharma to Barath, 1 leg bye, gets inside the line, there is some extra bounce here, but he will get the leg-bye

5.3

Sharma to Powell, no run, angled across him, left alone

5.4

Sharma to Powell, no run, played in front of his body - did the ball stop at him? - goes uppishly but well short of cover

5.5

Sharma to Powell, no run, good leave... starts just outside off, knows it is not coming back, and shoulders arms

5.6

Sharma to Powell, no run, too wide outside off to bother Powell

West Indies 14/0   I Sharma 3-1-7-0
7.1

Sharma to Barath, no run, good bounce for Ishant, raps Barath on the pad but well above the knee roll. Clearly missing the top of the stumps

7.2

Sharma to Barath, 2 runs, and nearly a fatal edge, drives on the up without getting close to the pitch of the ball, gets a thick inside edge towards square leg

7.3

Sharma to Barath, no run, right across his stumps, defends outside off

7.4

Sharma to Barath, no run, moves across, plays with a closed face, towards square leg

7.5

Sharma to Barath, no run, long, persistent shout for a catch down the leg side. Barath moves too far across, and swings with a closed face, there is an obvious sound as the ball passes him on the way to Dhoni, but Asad Rauf rules correctly that it has come off the pad

7.6

Sharma to Barath, no run, short ball, gets good bounce, Bararth is already inside its line, and lifts his arms to avoid contact

West Indies 17/0   I Sharma 4-1-9-0
12.1

Sharma to Barath, no run, defended outside off, short of driving length

12.2

Sharma to Barath, 1 run, driven with an open face, Abhinav gets a hand to it at point, but can't prevent the single

12.3

Sharma to KA Edwards, 1 run, back of a length, tucks Edwards up, who in turn tucks it into the on side for one

12.4

Sharma to Barath, no run, that's a proper bouncer, but too far outside off, and Barath - who shapes up for the hook - lets it go

12.5

Sharma to Barath, no run, another prolonged appeal for a catch down the leg side, short, into the ribs, Barath plays at it - doesn't have to - but replays show it came off the thigh pad

12.6

Sharma to Barath, OUT, Barath won't like seeing the replays for this. He has gone for a pull after having moved across, a touch too far inside the line, now he is pulling this away from his body, and gloves it onto his stumps. This is not a good start for West Indies on a good batting wicket

AB Barath b Sharma 12 (54m 38b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

West Indies 24/2   I Sharma 5-1-11-1
14.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, starts outside off, back of a length, so easily left alone

14.2

Sharma to Bravo, no run, this one holds its line outside off, left alone by Bravo

14.3

Sharma to Bravo, FOUR, not in control of this at all, this one gets big at Bravo who goes ahead with the cut anyway. A gully would have swallowed this, but there is none

14.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, this one angles in, Bravo is tall in defence, gets an inside edge onto the pad

14.5

Sharma to Bravo, no run, good leave, back of a length, outside off, covers the stumps, and then shoulders arms

14.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, back of a length, on his toes to defend it

West Indies 28/2   I Sharma 6-1-15-1
16.1

Sharma to KA Edwards, 1 run, full, into the pads, flicked wide of mid-on for a single

16.2

Sharma to Bravo, 2 runs, angled into the pads, nicely tucked away past square leg

16.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, wide outside off, shoulders arms to it

16.4

Sharma to Bravo, 1 run, short, into the ribs, fended into the ground, gets a single

16.5

Sharma to KA Edwards, OUT, The bouncer gets Edwards, who hasn't been comfortable with them at all. Although this has come off the helmet, and Edwards pointed to the offending equipment too, which might later earn him a fine. Accurate bouncer, head high, over the middle, in no position to hook it, bot goes for it, and the fielders and the umpire go by the sound created by the helmet

KA Edwards c †Dhoni b Sharma 6 (39m 29b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.68

16.6

Sharma to Chanderpaul, 4 byes, Bouncer and posthumous swing fool Dhoni. This seems headed well down the leg side, Dhoni goes to cover it, but after passing the stumps, the ball starts moving away towards Dhoni's original stance. Four byes

West Indies 39/3   I Sharma 7-1-19-2
18.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, played with an open face, off the middle of the bat though, but can't beat point

18.2

Sharma to Bravo, 1 run, soft hands again, gets a single into the off side

18.3

Sharma to Chanderpaul, 1 run, tucked away off the hips for a single to long leg. Off the mark in his 133rd Test

18.4

Sharma to Bravo, 1 run, turns the bat face on this late, and gets a single to long leg... well on second thoughts, it was a thick inside edge

18.5

Sharma to Chanderpaul, 1 run, this is fuller, though, and he nudges into the on side for another single

18.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, angled down the leg side

West Indies 44/3   I Sharma 8-1-23-2
32.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, back of a length, angling in, Bravo is tall in defence

32.2

Sharma to Bravo, no run, wide outside off, left alone

32.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, fuller, closer to off, Bravo defends it back to Sharma

32.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, shoulders arms to one outside off - hasn't quite hit his rhythm so far, has Sharma

32.5

Sharma to Bravo, no run, another delivery that makes Dhoni earn his match fee

32.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, left alone outside off again

West Indies 76/3   I Sharma 9-2-23-2
34.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, the first loose shot of the morning, Bravo drives half-heartedly at one well outside off, gets an inside edge into the ground, then onto his arm

34.2

Sharma to Bravo, no run, tries the bouncer, but misdirects it down the leg side

34.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, lovely short ball, gets about chest high, on top of off, Bravo plays at it, dropping wrists late, but it goes off the sleeve of the shirt. Umpire Kettleborough, though, would have given Bravo nervous moments: he nodded twice before calling it not-out

34.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, another short ball, just outside off, another bottom edge into the ground

34.5

Sharma to Bravo, no run, this is fuller and wider, and left alone well

34.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, short again, into the body, Bravo fends it down

West Indies 78/3   I Sharma 10-3-23-2
36.1

Sharma to Bravo, 1 run, What is happening here? Bravo rides the bounce, defends this straight to gully, and starts strolling for a single as if he has hit it to long-off. Even Shiv starts strolling for one, and he would have been gone by a mile had Abhinav hit the stumps

36.2

Sharma to Chanderpaul, no run, gets across, and pushes inside the line of this

36.3

Sharma to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off now

36.4

Sharma to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, fuller, straighter, making Shiv play, and play Shiv does, nudging it past square leg for a couple

36.5

Sharma to Chanderpaul, no run, full outside off, left alone

36.6

Sharma to Chanderpaul, 1 run, another deflection off the stumps after making bowl Sharma at the stumps, gets a single into the on side

West Indies 84/3   I Sharma 11-3-27-2
38.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, Sharma continues round the stumps, bowls a length ball around off, defended to cover

38.2

Sharma to Bravo, no run, nice drive on the up, with an open face, but can't beat the cover field

38.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, some indecision with running, hit to cover, Bravo calls for one, then goes back, and apologises to Samuels

38.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, this is wide outside off, and left alone

38.5

Sharma to Bravo, 2 runs, third extra-cover drive of the over, and finds the gap this time, will get only two - the outfield is heavy

38.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, the short one now, but starts outside off, and Bravo stays away from it

West Indies 86/4   I Sharma 12-3-29-2
43.1

Sharma to Samuels, 1 run, angling in, worked around the corner for a single

43.2

43.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, closer to off now, pushed to cover

43.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, driven on the up, straight to mid-off

43.5

Sharma to Bravo, no run, left alone outside off again... clearly they are testing Bravo's patience outside off

43.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, another cover-drive, finds the fielder again

West Indies 95/4   I Sharma 13-3-30-2
45.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, short of a good length outside off, lets it through

45.2

Sharma to Bravo, FOUR, Bravo Bravo, dropped it short did Ishant outside off and he got into position early, standing tall and pulling it past midwicket for a boundary

45.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, short of a length outside off, leaves it be

45.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, slightly short on middle, gets on the back foot and taps it back onto the pitch

45.5

Sharma to Bravo, no run, bowled it full outside off, driven towards cover, it's a packed off-side field

45.6

Sharma to Bravo, no run, short of a good length on middle and leg, gets back and drops it down towards point

West Indies 99/4   I Sharma 14-3-34-2
47.1

Sharma to Bravo, FOUR, Imperious from Bravo, it's no longer an 8-1 field and he took full toll of that good length delivery, drove it hard on the up through extra cover

47.2

Sharma to Bravo, no run, slower one from Ishant, bowled it full on middle, defended into the leg side

47.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, another slower one, landed it just outside leg and it cut back in, Bravo had shuffled across to turn it behind square, got struck on pocket

47.4

Sharma to Bravo, no run, banged it short this time on middle, gets back and knocks it down in front of midwicket

47.5

Sharma to Bravo, 1 run, swinging in slightly, Bravo gets back to turn it away past midwicket, an easy single on offer and he took it

47.6

Sharma to Baugh, 1 run, short of a good length on middle, walks across to play it down in the direction of fine leg for a single

West Indies 105/5   I Sharma 15-3-40-2
56.1

Sharma to Baugh, FOUR, nicely cut away, he might be a short man but he rides the bounce really well, hits it at the top of the bounce, between gully and point... good, positive batting

56.2

Sharma to Baugh, 1 run, goes wide of the crease, Baugh drives away from the body, gets a thick inside edge for one

56.3

Sharma to Bravo, FOUR, this might look like an edge, but this is nicely guided between slip and gully, off the face of the bat, which was open... Soft hands make sure it doesn't go in the air

56.4

Sharma to Bravo, FOUR, nearly carries to extra cover, this one is full, and shapes away from Bravo, who drives nonetheless. The ball goes uppishly, but falls short of Vijay at extra cover, and bursts through his hands

56.5

Sharma to Bravo, 1 run, Fifty for Bravo, he has worked hard for it, and deserves all the applause from the crowd. This one was angled in, and he deflected it to long leg

56.6

Sharma to Baugh, 1 run, short, into the ribs, guided down to fine leg for a single - 15 off the over

West Indies 146/5   I Sharma 16-3-55-2
58.1

Sharma to Bravo, no run, left alone outside off, good discipline from Bravo so far

58.2

Sharma to Bravo, no run, Dravid is claiming it, Bravo stands his ground. This is a full ball outside off, overpitched, moving away, Bravo gets the edge as he drives, but it is dying on Dravid who thinks he has got his fingers underneath it. Interesting replays. Front angle suggests the fingers are under it. The angle from behind suggests the ball might have touched the ground. Have to go with the batsman with these calls. Long discussion before the right decision is made

58.3

Sharma to Bravo, no run, Bravo is back to better discipline, and doesn't go chasing this wide one

58.4

Sharma to Bravo, OUT, Sharma gets his man. It's been a battle of attrition against Bravo, but in the end it is a good delivery rather than a wide one outside off that has got the wicket. Sharma goes slightly wider of the crease, this angles in towards Bravo, who is looking to withdraw his bat, but the ball chases him, and kisses the edge. Bravo walks

DM Bravo c †Dhoni b Sharma 50 (193m 134b 8x4 0x6) SR: 37.31

58.5

Sharma to Sammy, 1 run, back of a length, pushed into the covers

58.6

Sharma to Baugh, 1 run, cut away, keeps it down even though it gets a bit big on him, gets a single to third man

West Indies 160/6   I Sharma 17-3-57-3
60.1

Sharma to Baugh, no run, angled down the leg side, Baugh tries to play but misses

60.2

Sharma to Baugh, FOUR, What a way to get to his 50! The most Caribbean of flicks. Length ball, looks nonchalantly, and then at the last moment, the wrists whip through it... over midwicket, nearly carried for six

60.3

Sharma to Baugh, no run, solid forward defensive draws a big cheer from the crowd - almost as big as the fifty

60.4

Sharma to Baugh, no run, late swing in towards him, Baugh covers it and defends

60.5

Sharma to Baugh, no run, holds its line outside off, beats the outside edge... good stuff from Sharma

60.6

Sharma to Baugh, 2 runs, nice drive, on the up, with an open face, past point, wide of sweeper-cover

West Indies 175/6   I Sharma 18-3-63-3
62.1

Sharma to Sammy, FOUR, short and wide, and Sammy pulls this, dragging it from well outside off, and through midwicket. West Indies forceful now

62.2

Sharma to Sammy, no run, there is some flair to Sammy's batting, punches this to cover, doesn't find the gap, but stands tall and plays this nicely for the cameras

62.3

Sharma to Sammy, no run, appeal for lbw, and only interested in it because Sammy was padding up. This is pitched well outside off, comes back in, and hits the top of the pad. No way it is hitting

62.4

Sharma to Sammy, no run, goes for the full ball - surely there is a plan to surprise Sammy with a yorker, that's how Sharma got him last match. Sammy keeps this one out

62.5

Sharma to Sammy, no run, fullish, outside off, played back to Ishant

62.6

Sharma to Sammy, no run, this is back of a length, holds its line outside off, and Sammy plays at it, but after it has passed the stumps

West Indies 180/6   I Sharma 19-3-67-3
64.1

Sharma to Sammy, no run, edged, but it falls short of Dhoni who is diving forward. Good delivery, straightening outside off again, Sammy pushes, gets the edge, but it falls short. Sunny G rightly makes the point that even after so many edges falling short, the slippers and the keeper haven't come up

64.2

Sharma to Sammy, FOUR, nicely forced away, almost a back-cut, stands tall to play it, past gully... this is a good counterattack

64.3

Sharma to Sammy, no run, goes wide of the crease, angles this in, towards top of off, Sammy defends

64.4

Sharma to Sammy, SIX, Lovely, lovely shot... West Indies written all over it. On the up, high elbow, goes over mid-off, and then imparts awesome power in the end

64.5

Sharma to Sammy, no run, wide of the crease, angled in towards off, Sammy pushes it to mid-off, wants a single, but is sent back

64.6

Sharma to Sammy, no run, yorker outside off, digs it out for Kohli at cover. Raina mock-appeals for a crowd catch

West Indies 190/6   I Sharma 20-3-77-3
74.1

Sharma to FH Edwards, no run, bouncer wide outside off, Edwards goes for the upper-cut, connects with thin air

74.2

Sharma to FH Edwards, no run, another bouncer starting wide outside off, but coming back in, Castro has safely swayed out of harm's way

74.3

Sharma to FH Edwards, no run, this is the sharp bouncer, starts within the stumps, angles down the leg side, Castro stays away from it

74.4

Sharma to FH Edwards, no run, short and well outside off, Edwards is not reaching out for it

74.5

Sharma to FH Edwards, no run, another bouncer, and this is a peach, aimed straight at his face. Edwards fends at it, but despite the plan being to bowl bouncers there is no short leg

74.6

Sharma to FH Edwards, OUT, No it hasn't! More timber here. Edwards is a bit rattled, and doesn't want to get behind the line and all that stuff. Looks for the pull, the ball doesn't quite come up, takes the bottom edge onto the stumps. Ishant has four now. Could go for another five-for

FH Edwards b Sharma 3 (31m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.00

West Indies 204/9   I Sharma 21-4-77-4
76.1

Sharma to Bishoo, no run, bouncer, sharp pace, Bishoo ducks under it

76.2

Sharma to Bishoo, no run, stands tall, rides the bounce, cuts this into the ground, but can't find the gap

76.3

Sharma to Bishoo, OUT, After one thing it's two thing! Ishant took a long time getting that five-for when he did in Barbados, but he follows it up with another thoroughly deserved one. This is short again, Bishoo doesn't fancy getting in line, fends at this, plays it onto his stumps. First-ever five-for in Dominica

D Bishoo b Sharma 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
