9,10,11,12,13 August 2016 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Gabriel to Dhawan, OUT, 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

S Dhawan c †Dowrich b Gabriel 1 (14m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

India 9/1   KL Rahul 8* (11b)   ST Gabriel 1.3-0-6-1

Joseph to Kohli, OUT, 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

V Kohli c Bravo b Joseph 3 (17m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

India 19/2   KL Rahul 14* (22b 1x4)   AS Joseph 2.3-0-10-1

Chase to Rahul, OUT, 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

KL Rahul c Brathwaite b Chase 50 (104m 65b 6x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

India 77/3   AM Rahane 17* (41b 2x4)   RL Chase 1.3-0-6-1

Joseph to RG Sharma, OUT, 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

RG Sharma c †Dowrich b Joseph 9 (30m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 39.13

India 87/4   AM Rahane 17* (57b 2x4)   AS Joseph 7-3-15-2

Chase to Rahane, OUT, 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

AM Rahane b Chase 35 (202m 133b 4x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

India 126/5   R Ashwin 20* (65b)   RL Chase 9.3-2-15-2

Joseph to Saha, OUT, 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

WP Saha c †Dowrich b Joseph 104 (309m 227b 13x4 0x6) SR: 45.81

India 339/6   R Ashwin 111* (279b 5x4 1x6)   AS Joseph 22.5-6-65-3

Cummins to Jadeja, OUT, Finally some success for Cummins. Sweet taste of success. Maiden Test wicket. He had to wait 281 balls for this. Back of a length and angled away from the left hander from over the wicket. Jadeja has a flat-footed slash. Dowrich dives to his left and snaps up the thick edge

RA Jadeja c †Dowrich b Cummins 6 (21m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

India 351/7   R Ashwin 117* (294b 6x4 1x6)   ML Cummins 20.1-7-54-1

Gabriel to Kumar, OUT, 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?

B Kumar c Johnson b Gabriel 0 (11m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 353/8   R Ashwin 118* (296b 6x4 1x6)   ST Gabriel 23-4-84-2

Cummins to Ashwin, OUT, 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

R Ashwin c Blackwood b Cummins 118 (446m 297b 6x4 1x6) SR: 39.73

India 353/9   Mohammed Shami 0* (0b)   ML Cummins 21.1-8-54-2

Cummins to I Sharma, OUT, 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

I Sharma c Johnson b Cummins 0 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 353/10   Mohammed Shami 0* (0b)   ML Cummins 21.4-8-54-3
