View dismissal KL Rahul c Brathwaite b Chase 50 104 65 6 0 76.92
19.3 49.0 mph, Fifty and out. He can't convert this into a big one. He had previously converted three fifties into tons. The celebrations are short-lived. Lapse in concentration? This was pushed through quick and flat by Chase, Rahul looks to play with the spin again. He ends up chipping an attempted flick in the air. Short fine leg, who had been moved from deep point before this ball, dives forward and snaps it up. An attacking knock meets a soft end 77/3
View dismissal S Dhawan c †Dowrich b Gabriel 1 14 4 0 0 25.00
2.3 86.9 mph, What have you Dhawan? Strangled down the leg side. Gabriel and the cordon go up. As does umpire Llong's finger. They check for a possible no-ball. The quick is okay on that count as well. This was pitched short and harmlessly down the leg side, Dhawan chases and gloves it behind to Dowrich. Knee-high catch. Did not bounce much 9/1
View dismissal V Kohli* c Bravo b Joseph 3 17 8 0 0 37.50
5.3 87.4 mph, Joseph's first international victim is Kohli. Bounced out. Banged in on a back of a length and swerves in just outside off, 141ks, rears up at Kohli and cramps him for room. He is surprised by the extra lift and looks to fend with hard hands. He checked his shot - cut or punch - and just fended it. An edge flies to Bravo at first slip. He clasps it in front of his head. Opened up and undone by pace and bounce. What a moment for Joseph. Joel Garner, who presented the cap to Joseph, would have been proud of that prancing delivery 19/2
View dismissal AM Rahane b Chase 35 202 133 4 0 26.31
49.3 49.8 mph, Oh, Rahane has missed this dipping full toss on off. This was looped up high, so much so it ended up as a full toss. Rahane shaped to sweep across the line. The ball dipped at him and ultimately yorked him as he missed the line. Reward for Chase as he hits the off stump. Rahane has failed to capitalise, after diggin' in, much like Pujara. He can't believe it 126/5
View dismissal RG Sharma c †Dowrich b Joseph 9 30 23 2 0 39.13
25.6 82.3 mph, Rohit has nicked off. The pressure gets to him. Angles in a good-length ball, which swings away on a set of stumps outside off. Rohit is crease-bound as he pokes at this tempter and edges it behind. Dowrich grabs it at knee-height. Well bowled, Joseph. The quick has always been at the batsman. Rohit, though, disappoints on return. The team management made a big call to pick him when Vijay and Pujara were left out. And Rohit has let them down with this impatient prod. He will be under greater pressure in the second innings 87/4
View dismissal R Ashwin c Blackwood b Cummins 118 446 297 6 1 39.73
129.1 82.5 mph, Bhuvneshwar and Ashwin fall either side of the drinks break. Make that three wickets in 13 balls. Banged in short and kicks up at the chest. Fierce lifter as Ashwin is caught in a tangle. Fends awkwardly and lobs a catch to backward point off the shoulder of the bat. 118 off nearly 300 balls 353/9
View dismissal WP Saha c †Dowrich b Joseph 104 309 227 13 0 45.81
121.5 80.8 mph, Has Saha nicked off? Bump ball? Joseph is mobbed by his team-mates. Umpires Tucker and Llong converge. They call on the TV umpire Brathwaite. Yes, Saha has to exit. Not a bump ball. Good clean catch from Dowrich. Attempts an Offcutting delivery very full outside off, Saha jams his bat down at a drive. The ball bounces just in front of the bat, nearly yorking him. Takes the edge and carries low to Dowrich, diving to his right. WI find a breakthrough after 434 balls. End of a hard-fought knock 339/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja c †Dowrich b Cummins 6 21 17 1 0 35.29

View dismissal B Kumar c Johnson b Gabriel 0 11 9 0 0 0.00
128.6 91.5 mph, Bhuvneshwar bags a duck. Back of a length on middle stump at 147.2ks, Bhuvneshwar hops and simply fends it to short leg. Leon Johnson, the man under the helmet, hangs on to the chance. He stayed low and grabbed it at knee-height. Two wickets in two overs. Where did it come from? 353/8

129.4 84.9 mph, Ishant done in by the short ball as well. This carries to short leg. Johnson takes it and races off the field to get ready to bat. Dug in short and rises at Ishant. He leaps and fends it to the fielder. Johnson dives to his right and completes another fine catch. Cummins falls on the floor and celebrates. He had to wait 281 balls for his first wicket. He now has three in ten balls and India have been dismissed for 353 353/10

Rahul swoops down on the ball. There was no run in it. Johnson chances his arm and has to pay for it. He doesn't dive either. Sharp work from Rahul. He had just one stump to aim at and side-armed it onto the furniture even has tumbled onto the ground. Rocket throw! He had dropped Johnson on 4 at slip. He now runs him out. In between, Johnson had made 19. India's fielding coach Abhay Sharma is on his feet, applauding Rahul's effort from the change room. Kohli sets off on a little celebratory run 59/1

View dismissal J Blackwood st †Saha b Jadeja 1 22 11 0 0 9.09
29.1 52.2 mph, Jadeja comes on. Saha thinks he has Blackwood stumped. They refer it to the TV umpire. Did Blackwood drag his back leg back in time? Think there is nothing behind the line. The foot is on the line. TV umpire Brathwaite rules it out. Saha is congratulated by his team-mates. Jadeja tossed this up outside off and found some sharp turn. Dragging Blackwood forward who likes to tonk the ball. He stretches forward for a big drive and is beaten past the outside edge. Quicksilver work from Saha. He rode the extra bounce and turn superbly. Collects the ball to his right and knocked off the stumps India five away from victory 68/5
View dismissal SO Dowrich c Kohli b Mohammed Shami 5 34 31 0 0 16.12
37.1 85.3 mph, Edged and taken by Kohli at second slip. Fuller, angled in, and straightens around off. Dowrich pushes and nicks it behind. Shami built that up with a volley of dots. Kohli, who stood forward than usual at second slip, takes it low. Good ploy, considering the edges aren't carrying 84/6
View dismissal JO Holder* run out (Ashwin) 1 11 12 0 0 8.33
39.5 from Mohammed Shami, Holder has run himself out. Bravo yelled "no, no, no".... Holder was nearly halfway down the pitch before spinning around. Good length ball on off, Holder simply dabbed it towards Ashwin at short cover and set off. There wasn't a run there. Ashwin collected the ball and connected with a direct hit at the striker's end to catch Holder short 88/7

42.1 50.1 mph, Ashwin lodges himself into the wickets column now. Joseph bags a pair on debut. Ashwin lobs this offbreak up on middle. Invites the big hit from Joseph. He shovels it in the air. Skied off the inside half. Shami initially misjudged it running in from the deep. He then recovers, dives forward, and completes the low catch at midwicket. Ashwin has a wry smile on his face.

4.2 to Brathwaite, 80.2 mph, After teasing Brathwaite with some outswingers, Bhuvneshwar swings this one in, and gets it to straighten on off and middle. Pretty full in length. Brathwaite plays across the line and falls over. Bang in front. Umpire Tucker's finger almost went up instantly. The tracker confirms that it would clatter into off. WI 4 for the loss of their openers inside five overs 4/2

3.5 to Johnson, 84.2 mph, Johnson pops a catch to short leg and exits for a five-ball duck! Rohit, under the helmet, takes it to his right. Good catch. Finally, he has hung onto one. Back of a length and angled in, Johnson can't keep it down. Fends with firm hands to the fielder 4/1
37.1 to Dowrich, 85.3 mph, Edged and taken by Kohli at second slip. Fuller, angled in, and straightens around off. Dowrich pushes and nicks it behind. Shami built that up with a volley of dots. Kohli, who stood forward than usual at second slip, takes it low. Good ploy, considering the edges aren't carrying 84/6
41.4 to Bravo, 84.5 mph, Shortish and angled in from wide of the crease, round the wicket. Bravo fends and squirts an inside edge that loops off the thigh pad and drops into the hands of Rohit at short leg who is standing a few feet back. After all those verbal volleys between Bravo and Rohit, the latter has the last laugh. India two away from triumph 95/8

13.2 to Samuels, 85.9 mph, The offstump is sent cartwheeling. What a pleasing sight for a fast bowler. Ishant is pumped. Back of a length and Ishant brings this one back into the batsman. Samuels as he often does camps back, and chooses to cut. The length was neither too short nor the line was too wide. The ball seams in and shoots through the gate. Beaten on the inside and timbaaaaah. Samuel's attempt to smash the leather off the ball fails miserably 35/3
25.2 to Chase, 87.0 mph, Ishant does Chase in. Good length inswinger from wide of the crease, over the wicket, 140ks, Ishant rides his car through the gate. Got Samuels through the gate as well. Chase is slightly late to move forward, and is beaten on the inside. India six away from triumph. The off stump is knocked out of the ground 64/4
