India tour of West Indies, 2006 / Wicket commentary

India in West Indies ODI Series - 4th ODI

West Indies v India

West Indies won by 6 wickets (with 36 balls remaining)

3.4

Bradshaw to Sehwag, OUT, 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!

V Sehwag c Gayle b Bradshaw 11 (11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 13/1   R Dravid 2* (11b)   IDR Bradshaw 1.4-0-10-1

9.1

Bradshaw to Raina, OUT, 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.

SK Raina c Sarwan b Bradshaw 7 (22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.81

India 28/2   R Dravid 7* (22b 1x4)   IDR Bradshaw 4.1-0-18-2

15.3

Collymore to Dravid, OUT, 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!

R Dravid c Sarwan b Collymore 15 (38b 1x4 0x6) SR: 39.47

India 47/3   Yuvraj Singh 9* (22b 1x4)   CD Collymore 3.3-1-13-1

31.5

Edwards to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, 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!

Yuvraj Singh c †Baugh b Edwards 52 (78b 5x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

India 127/4   M Kaif 28* (44b 3x4)   FH Edwards 7.5-1-18-1

46.3

Bravo to Kaif, OUT, 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.

M Kaif b Bravo 62 (84b 5x4 0x6) SR: 73.80

India 188/5   MS Dhoni 26* (48b 2x4)   DJ Bravo 3.3-0-23-1

48.2

Bravo to Pathan, OUT, 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!

IK Pathan c Collymore b Bravo 8 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

India 206/6   MS Dhoni 36* (52b 4x4)   DJ Bravo 4.2-0-32-2

48.6

Bravo to Agarkar, OUT, 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!

AB Agarkar b Bravo 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 206/7   MS Dhoni 36* (52b 4x4)   DJ Bravo 5-0-32-3
