  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

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

West Indies 28/2   DM Bravo 4* (3b 1x4)   I Sharma 5.3-1-15-1

Harbhajan Singh to Bravo, FOUR, short again, and Bravo waits for the turn and smashes this in front of square. Only the second boundary of the innings, both hit by Bravo. Poor delivery, severely dealt with

West Indies 57/3   DM Bravo 16* (36b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 3-1-8-0

Kumar to Bravo, FOUR, Shot! That sure does remind one of BCL. Half-volley all right, but what a drive, high elbow for the photographers too. Extra cover has no chance

West Indies 68/3   DM Bravo 21* (44b 3x4)   P Kumar 8.4-2-12-1

Kumar to Chanderpaul, FOUR, wide half-volley, and Shiv drives this with an open face, piercing the gap between cover and cover-point. ten minutes into the session, and they have doubled their boundary count

West Indies 75/3   S Chanderpaul 17* (43b 1x4)   P Kumar 9.5-2-19-1

Patel to Samuels, FOUR, too full, and Samuels drives it beautifully, between mid-off and the bowler. Stays on the crease, moves across, and times it superbly

West Indies 90/4   MN Samuels 4* (10b 1x4)   MM Patel 12.1-6-14-1

Patel to Samuels, FOUR, flashy, and productive... wide length ball and he drives on the up, past point... even on this outfield he didn't need to run for that

West Indies 94/4   MN Samuels 8* (13b 2x4)   MM Patel 12.4-6-18-1

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

West Indies 99/4   DM Bravo 31* (101b 4x4)   I Sharma 13.2-3-34-2

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

West Indies 103/5   DM Bravo 35* (106b 5x4)   I Sharma 14.1-3-38-2

Raina to Baugh, FOUR, short, wide, cut away in front of square, teases Munaf who has run all the way from point, and trickles into the rope

West Indies 121/5   CS Baugh 16* (21b 1x4 1x6)   SK Raina 2.3-1-7-0

Raina to Bravo, FOUR, short again, and Bravo punches it superbly, back arching away, creating room, and then the bat meeting it slightly away from the body but completely in control

West Indies 126/5   DM Bravo 41* (123b 6x4)   SK Raina 2.5-1-12-0

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

West Indies 135/5   CS Baugh 26* (38b 2x4 1x6)   I Sharma 15.1-3-44-2

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

West Indies 140/5   DM Bravo 45* (128b 7x4)   I Sharma 15.3-3-49-2

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

West Indies 144/5   DM Bravo 49* (129b 8x4)   I Sharma 15.4-3-53-2

Patel to Baugh, FOUR, flashes at one wide outside off, gets a thick edge and it flies just to the left of gully. Kohli couldn't have done anything about this. Fifty for the partnership, off 66 balls

West Indies 150/5   CS Baugh 32* (41b 3x4 1x6)   MM Patel 14.1-6-25-1

Patel to Baugh, FOUR, another thick edge, this time to the right of gully, which had just moved finer after that previous edge. Munaf gives Baugh - half his size - some lip

West Indies 154/5   CS Baugh 36* (42b 4x4 1x6)   MM Patel 14.2-6-29-1

Patel to Baugh, FOUR, nice back-cut, good hands there, opening the face late, past gully. Baugh is annoying Munaf here

West Indies 164/6   CS Baugh 45* (49b 5x4 1x6)   MM Patel 15.2-6-37-1

Patel to Sammy, FOUR, and he bowls a low full toss wide outside off, and Sammy crashes it through cover. Interestingly the man to short midwicket was brought from cover

West Indies 169/6   DJG Sammy 5* (3b 1x4)   MM Patel 15.5-6-42-1

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

West Indies 173/6   CS Baugh 50* (52b 6x4 1x6)   I Sharma 17.2-3-61-3

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

West Indies 180/6   DJG Sammy 10* (9b 2x4)   I Sharma 18.1-3-67-3

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