  India 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal W Jaffer c †Ramdin b Edwards 1 14 9 0 0 11.11
2.5 Edwards strikes early! short of a good length delivery, pitched in-line with the off stump and shaping away ever-so-slightly, Jaffer defends on the back-foot but fails to cover the line properly, ball shapes away just enough to kiss the outside edge and Ramdin behind the stumps makes no mistake. 10/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Lara b Collymore 36 50 37 7 0 97.29
10.1 and he strikes first ball! good length delivery, close to the off stump line, nothing special there - just a straight delivery, Sehwag pushes forward to defend with no real footwork, ball kisses the outside edge and goes straight to Lara at second slip 51/2
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Ramdin b Bravo 29 100 74 5 0 39.18
24.5 gone! Laxman's patience runs out and this time he flirts at a full-length delivery that pitched just outside the off stump and moved away and the resultant edge is snapped up by Ramdin. Laxman had repeatedly left alone many a delivery outside the off stump but this time he felt it was in his slot and had a flash, but was beaten by the late movement. Very crucial wicket just before lunch and Lara won't be complaining 72/3
View dismissal R Dravid* c Lara b Collymore 49 249 173 4 0 28.32
70.5 gone! Dravid falls one short of his half century and that's a big big wicket for West Indies!. It was short of a length delivery, pitching outside the off stump and it held its line, Dravid is foxed by the straightening of that delivery, pushed at it, away from his body, and steered it straight to Lara, at second slip, who pouches it safely. Dravid's valiant resistance ends and India really in doldrums here and West Indies will be looking to wrap up the Indian innings. Good line and length stuff from Collymore. 180/7
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh b Mohammed 23 84 67 3 0 34.32
47.4 gone! got his man! the chinaman has done Yuvraj in! Lovely delivery that pitched on the middle and off stump line, and it hastened off the pitch and Yuvraj was beaten by the spin and the pace there. He initially lunges forward and then tries to go back and has a waft, across the line, as the ball spins past him, doesn't connect and the off stump was pegged back. Brilliant bit of bowling from Mohammed! 126/4
View dismissal M Kaif c †Ramdin b Bravo 13 50 38 2 0 34.21
60.3 even better! good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and shaping in off the seam, perfect line and length - Kaif drives off the front-foot, eyeing the cover region, ball kisses the inside edge and goes straight to Ramdin behind the stumps - Bravo rewarded from some fantastic seam bowling, Indian five down and in trouble here 155/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Lara b Collymore 19 34 27 2 0 70.37
68.3 got'm! follows up the short delivery with a fuller length delivery, drifting in with the arm and this one shaped away a touch after hitting the deck, Dhoni is foxed into driving away from his body and the edge goes straight to Lara at second slip 179/6
View dismissal A Kumble b Bravo 21 73 51 4 0 41.17
83.6 done in by the bounce! Bravo dug that one short and it reared up chest high, just outside the off stump, and Kumble gets up on his toes, tries to get on top of the bounce and taps it down but the ball kept climbing and he ended up chopping it back onto his stumps. And Kumble's brave resistance ends 227/8

85.5 VRV Singh's misery ends! A one-handed hoick, a swat,at a short of a length delivery on the stumps, takes the ball straight up in the air and Sarwan,at covers, takes the catch running to his right. VRV had intended to send it over midwicket but .... 231/9
View dismissal MM Patel b Edwards 0 9 28 0 0 0.00
92.5 and the inevitable! good length delivery on the stumps, hint of away moment, Patel makes room and pushes at it with no real conviction, like a stranger in a strange land, ball squeezes past the outside edge and crashes into the woodwork. 241/10

27.2 gone! Kumble picks the crucial wicket of Gayle! It pitched, full, on the off and middle stump line and broke away a bit, Gayle pressed forward tentatively and pushed at it, away from his body and it took the outer edge enroute to Dravid at slips. 137/2
View dismissal D Ganga lbw b Patel 9 20 13 2 0 69.23
3.5 got'm! good length delivery, this one hit the deck and jagged back in sharply, Ganga pushes forward to defend but ends up playing down the wrong line and the ball hits the front-pad, loud appeal and umpire Asad Rauf adjudicates in favour of the bowler - the ball would have gone on to hit the stumps but the impact was touch outside the line off the off stump, Ganga bit unlucky there 18/1
View dismissal RR Sarwan lbw b Kumble 58 173 110 9 0 52.72
41.1 and Kumble strikes first ball after tea! well bowled flipper, the one that goes straight on after hitting the deck, Sarwan plays for the spin and is trapped plumb in front - what a start! 182/4

32.5 Lara goes! It was on a length, just outside the off stump and slanting away, Lara puts his right foot out, still doesn't get up to the pitch of the ball but still goes for his drive, on the up, the top hand comes of the bat-handle and it takes the outer edge and flies to left of Yuvraj Singh, at point, who pouches it. crucial wicket for India 159/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Dhoni b Sehwag 24 124 79 3 0 30.37
63.2 given out after a lengthy deliberation by Umpire Asad Rauf! it was slightly short of a length delivery that pitched on the off stump line and spun away a bit, Chanderpaul rocked back to cut, but it kept a touch low, and there must have been a faint nick. There was a noise, Rauf felt it was off the under edge of the bat and after a lengthy pregnant pause, raised the fatal finger. The snickometer suggests that there was an edge 255/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo st †Dhoni b Sehwag 68 107 92 11 0 73.91
67.3 lovely delivery to dismiss Bravo. It was flighted up, just outside the off stump, short of a driveable length, sucking Bravo into a drive. Bravo obliged, and was dragged out of his crease as he leant forward to drive, gets beaten by the flight and the turn and the ball goes through the bat and pad gap and to left of Dhoni, who gathers it and effects a lightning quick stumping. Thats a vital blow for India. Bravo was batting brilliantly until this happened. 282/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Dhoni b Patel 26 90 68 3 0 38.23
86.5 got'm this time! another excellent delivery, again pitched right in the channel and shaping away late, Ramdin pushes forward to defend, it looked like he had it covered but the ball moved away a touch at the last moment and the resultant edge went straight to Dhoni behind the stumps - Patel's persistence pays off 331/7
View dismissal IDR Bradshaw c Yuvraj Singh b Singh 33 111 85 6 0 38.82
93.5 short of a length and this one kicked up drastically, Bradshaw was taken by surprise, he battled hard to avoid it but in the end it was too little to late, ball clipped the shoulder of the bat and lobbed up towards point and Yuvraj takes a comfortable catch to give VR Singh his first Test wicket. 359/8

View dismissal FH Edwards c †Dhoni b Singh 4 24 15 1 0 26.66
97.6 a snorter gets VRV Singh his second wicket! similar to his first wicket! It was short and rising, on the off and middle stump line and it reared up right at the face of Edwards, who thrust his bat out, a ungainly face shield, and it ballooned up to Dhoni, who jogged a bit forward to take the catch. VRV Singh's short pitched stuff is proving too hot for the West Indies tailend batsmen to handle. 370/9
View dismissal CD Collymore lbw b Kumble 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
98.3 gone! got him! trapped in front and West Indies innings has ended! It was on a length, pitched on the leg and middle stump line and turned in, towards the middle, Collymore's bat was nowhere near it, he had a waft outside the line of the ball and was trapped plumb. So India trail by 130 runs. 371/10

117.4 gone! finally Jaffer is out! Huge celebrations break out in the middle. It was a full-length delivery, pitched on the off and middle stump line and straightened, Jaffer puts his left foot out a bit, and goes for a on-the-up drive, is beaten by the straightening of the ball, and the ball threads the bat and pad gap to disturb the furniture. A very valuable knock by the opening batsman from Mumbai. 116 runs came in the off side, 96 on the on side, so can't say he preferred one to the other. It has been a elegant and a patient knock - 292 dot balls, 24 fours, a six (over long-on), 60 singles, 19 twos, four 3's 375/4

It was on a length, on the middle stump line and it straightened after pitching, Lara shuffles across and ends up playing outside the line, beaten by the straightening of the ball and is rapped right in front of the middle, Rauf took his time to decide on the bounce and whether it would have taken the top of the middle, he decided it would have and raised the fatal finger. Replays suggest that it would have hit the top of the stump and a crucial crucial wicket goes at the stroke of lunch. India right on top here. 72/3

Replays were inconclusive. Atleast the ones shown so far. I am not sure he touched it, Bradshaw is unlucky 277/8

30.3 to Lara, appeal for lbw! and Asad Rauf gives it after a lengthy deliberation! Brian Charles Lara is out! It was on a length, on the middle stump line and it straightened after pitching, Lara shuffles across and ends up playing outside the line, beaten by the straightening of the ball and is rapped right in front of the middle, Rauf took his time to decide on the bounce and whether it would have taken the top of the middle, he decided it would have and raised the fatal finger. Replays suggest that it would have hit the top of the stump and a crucial crucial wicket goes at the stroke of lunch. India right on top here. 72/3

25.6 to Ganga, Gone! got his man after troubling him through the over. It was full and on the middle and leg, Ganga pushed forward, ahead of his body, got a inside edge and flew left of Yuvraj at squarish short-leg, and Yuvraj dived to his left to come up with a catch! First wicket goes down! 67/1
59.5 to Gayle, Kumble strikes back for India! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, the one that turns in, Gayle pushes forward to defend with his bat tucked away safely behind the pad, loud appeal and umpire Taufel adjudicates in favour of the bowler, that's a crucial blow! West Indies four down and in a spot of bother here 171/4
67.4 to Chanderpaul, Taufelled!!! good length delivery, drifting in with the arm, Chanderpaul gets his right-leg forward to the pitch of the delivery and takes it on the pad, ball pops up straight to Dravid at first slip, loud appeal and up goes the finger, TV replays clearly shows that the bat way nowhere near the ball, umpire Simon Taufel gets it terribly wrong on this occasion. 202/5
91.5 to Mohammed, That man Anil Kumble! He strikes, yet again, for India to sink in one more nail into the West Indies coffin. It was full, on the blockhole length, on the middle stump line and Dave Mohammed, as he has done through out this innings, goes for a forcing drive, misses and the furniture is disturbed! 297/9

72.1 to Bravo, Bravo depart! tossed up delivery, drifted away in the air and then turned in a touch after hitting the deck, too good a delivery for Bravo, he has a tentative poke at it and the edge is produced, Dhoni holds on well to a fairly hard chance - India on fire here 220/6
74.1 to Ramdin, Sehwag - take a bow! nicely flighted delivery, again drifting away in the air and turning in after hitting the deck, Ramdin is caught in two minds and in the end he goes for the cut off the back-foot, ball clips the outside edge and flies away towards Dravid at first slip who chips it up and takes it on the second attempt, West Indies seven down and in deep trouble here, India need just three more to wrap this up. 226/7
