View dismissal V Sehwag c Gayle b Bradshaw 11 11 2 0 100.00
3.4 gone! super catch! short of length and outside the off stump, Sehwag has a go at it again, threw his hands at it and the ball was ascending over Gayle, at covers, but Gayle times his jump perfectly to pouch the ball. The danger man Sehwag is gone! 13/1
View dismissal R Dravid* c Sarwan b Collymore 15 38 1 0 39.47
15.3 Collymore strikes! short of a good length delivery, pitched bit wide outside the off stump and slanting away ever-so-slightly, Dravid plays away from his body in an effort to run it down to third man, ball shapes away just enough to kiss the outside edge, Sarwan at second slip dives across to his right and takes a good low catch, India three down! 47/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Sarwan b Bradshaw 7 22 0 0 31.81
9.1 gone! short of length and a foot outside the offstump, Raina gets back and across and goes for a square-cut, rather a square-slash, gets the edge which flies fast above head-high and to the right of Sarwan, at first slip, who pouches it safely. A very good catch and now India in trouble here. 28/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c †Baugh b Edwards 52 78 5 0 66.66
31.5 short of a good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and slanting away from the left-hander, line and length was just perfect, Yuvraj has a poke at it, like a stranger in a strange land searching for the mythical unicorn, ball moves away just enough to clip the outside edge, Baugh quickly moves across to his left and takes a good low catch - that's a big wicket! 127/4
View dismissal M Kaif b Bravo 62 84 5 0 73.80
46.3 Gone! got him! Another Bravo special! A slow full-length delivery! Kaif is completely beaten and the ball squeezes past his waft to disturb the furniture. Yuvraj Singh can understand Kaif's pain... A similar delivery had got him in that exciting second match. 188/5
MS Dhoni not out 46 58 6 0 79.31
View dismissal IK Pathan c Collymore b Bravo 8 7 1 0 114.28
48.2 He gets his man! another slower one, just outside the off stump and Pathan shuffles across and tries to paddle it past the short fine leg fielder, who had been moved in just prior to this ball, but sends the ball straight to the waiting palms of Colleymore there! 206/6
View dismissal AB Agarkar b Bravo 0 4 0 0 0.00
48.6 Oh dear! Bravo gets another wicket courtesy his famous slower ball! Released between his thumb and the forefinger and it loops in the air towards the off and middle stump and even as Agarkar's high back lift descends, the ball dips, grips the surface, turns in past the blade to take out the leg stump! 206/7

View dismissal CH Gayle c Agarkar b Powar 46 70 6 1 65.71
22.3 tossed up on the middle and off stump line, drifting away, Gayle comes down the track and swings hard, looking to clear the man at long-off, gets the height but not the distance and Agarkar in the deep judges it to perfection, Powar with the much needed breakthrough - West Indies three down. 91/3
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b Pathan 9 12 2 0 75.00
4.4 good length delivery on the middle and leg stump line, hint of in-wing, Samuels is comprehensively beaten, he plays down the wrong line and the ball hit him on the back pad, loud appeal and up goes the finger, that ball might have been sliding down the leg side but umpire Taufel was convinced that it would have clipped the leg stump 28/1
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Sehwag b Agarkar 6 9 1 0 66.66
8.2 Agarkar strikes back for India! rank short ball, had six written all over it, for a moment Sarwan might have thought that he was dreaming, suddenly the alarm-bell goes off and he goes for the pull, a nothing shot in the end - ball clips the top edge and balloons up towards square leg, Sehwag calls for it early and nicely settles under it 49/2
View dismissal BC Lara* c Raina b Powar 69 97 8 1 71.13
39.2 gone! Lara falls! A wonderful innings comes to an end. Powar tosses one up, on the leg and middle stump, Lara is again down the track and tries to hoick it up and over long-on, gets a leading top edge to mid-off. 182/4
