India tour of West Indies, 3rd Test: West Indies v India at Roseau, Jul 6-10, 2011
6,7,8,9,10 July 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Kumar to Powell, OUT, Edged and taken! Debutant is gone. Eric Richards, one of the feedbackers, has put the goat mouth no him. A very good delivery from PK. Looked like an outsiwnger, pitched around off, making him play, and then leaves him, taking the edge through to Laxman at second slip

KOA Powell c Laxman b Kumar 3 (35m 23b 0x4 0x6) SR: 13.04

West Indies 17/1   AB Barath 9* (26b)   P Kumar 4.1-2-3-1

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   KA Edwards 2* (17b)   I Sharma 5-1-11-1

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

West Indies 35/3   DM Bravo 7* (11b 1x4)   I Sharma 6.5-1-19-2

Patel to Chanderpaul, OUT, Munaf keeps nibbling away around off, and he gets the fatal nibble from Shiv. What a big wicket. That same short-of-a-length delivery, around off, bowled from close to the stumps, the ever clear Shiv is indecisive this time, and has a poke at it. Munna's first wicket in Tests since March 2009. Welcome back

S Chanderpaul c †Dhoni b Patel 23 (77m 59b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.98

West Indies 84/4   DM Bravo 25* (76b 3x4)   MM Patel 10.3-4-10-1

Kumar to Samuels, OUT, Praveen strikes! Lazy shot from Samuels there, or was there a shot at all? It didn't bounce as much, was short of a good length outside off and he just hung his bat out at that one, no intent whatsoever, got an inside edge and saw his off stump pegged back

MN Samuels b Kumar 9 (37m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 39.13

West Indies 99/5   DM Bravo 31* (105b 4x4)   P Kumar 13.1-5-19-2

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

West Indies 158/6   CS Baugh 40* (46b 4x4 1x6)   I Sharma 16.4-3-55-3

Harbhajan Singh to Sammy, OUT, No. 399 for Harbhajan. Scrambled seam on this one, Sammy looks for a forward defensive, but this is not full enough, bounces a touch extra, takes the inside edge onto the pad, and swallowed at FSL. Harbhajan keeps appealing for a long long time, only for Asad Rauf to point to him that the batsman has walked off. That's the typical Harbhajan appeal, running backwards with his back to the batsman

DJG Sammy c Mukund b Harbhajan Singh 20 (42m 23b 3x4 1x6) SR: 86.95

West Indies 199/7   CS Baugh 59* (74b 6x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 10.1-2-26-1

Harbhajan Singh to Baugh, OUT, Timber! Harbhajan becomes the 11th man in Test cricket to reach 400 Test wickets. Gets a standing ovation from the balcony, and pats on the back from the whole team. Harbhajan raises his arms to acknowledge it. Baugh plays the cut, but this is pitched just outside off, and turns back in, beats him, and takes the middle stump. let's not forget Baugh has played really well. Falls eight short of his career-best

CS Baugh b Harbhajan Singh 60 (106m 79b 6x4 1x6) SR: 75.94

West Indies 200/8   FH Edwards 0* (10b)   Harbhajan Singh 11.4-3-26-2

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   R Rampaul 0* (17b)   I Sharma 21-4-77-4

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

West Indies 204/10   R Rampaul 0* (23b)   I Sharma 21.3-4-77-5
