37.4

Patel to Gayle, OUT, oh ho! Gayle shoulders arms only to see his off stump cartwheel! It pitched outside the off stump, on a length, and Gayle immediately had begun to raise his bat high, but the ball came in with the angle, and crashed into the off stump!

CH Gayle b Patel 83 (157m 127b 8x4 5x6) SR: 65.35

West Indies 143/1   D Ganga 47* (105b 5x4)   MM Patel 11.4-2-42-1

94.2

Patel to Ganga, OUT, dragged on to the stumps! Finally Ganga' marathon effort comes to an end. It was a short of length delivery, coming in from just outside the off stump, Ganga jabs at it, his bat coming down in an angle, takes the inside edge onto his stumps. nd thus the second best 2nd wicket partnership of West Indies against India comes to an end.

D Ganga b Patel 135 (387m 294b 15x4 0x6) SR: 45.91

West Indies 346/2   RR Sarwan 109* (156b 17x4 1x6)   MM Patel 21.2-2-108-2

96.2

Patel to Lara, OUT, Munaf Patel's redemption song gets even more audible at St Kitts! Lara is gone! It was a length delivery, on the middle and off stump line, and straightened a bit, and appeared to be heading towards the off stump line, when Lara pushed his right foot out, a bit too much across, and it thudded into his front pad, below the knee-roll. would have crashed into the off stump. Two quick wickets for India just before Lunch.

BC Lara lbw b Patel 10 (8m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

West Indies 356/3   RR Sarwan 109* (157b 17x4 1x6)   MM Patel 22.2-2-113-3

102.4

Sreesanth to Sarwan, OUT, Sreesanth strikes gold! good length, this one pitched in-line with the off stump and nipped back in sharply, to be fair to Sarwan the ball kept bit low after hitting the deck and he was beaten by a combination of low bounce and late movement, Sarwan played down the wrong line and the ball hit the pad right in front of the stumps, 'Guilty as charged' is the verdict from umpire Rudi Koertzen and another fine innings comes to an end.

RR Sarwan lbw b Sreesanth 116 (271m 174b 17x4 1x6) SR: 66.66

West Indies 371/4   S Chanderpaul 7* (21b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 21.4-6-51-1

113.4

Harbhajan Singh to Bravo, OUT, gone! Brian Jerling finally raises his finger, not for a lbw shout though, a caught behind dismissal. It was fullish, outside the off stump, straightens after pitching, Bravo goes back, not the length for it, tries to steer it past slips, gets an think edge, and Dhoni pouches it on second attempt.

DJ Bravo c †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 21 (51m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

West Indies 406/5   S Chanderpaul 21* (54b 3x4)   Harbhajan Singh 24.4-2-89-1

164.3

Sehwag to Samuels, OUT, one too many! on the middle and off stump line, turning in slow, Samuels comes down the track and hits it with the spin to the deep midwicket region, got the height but not the distance, Harbhajan in the deep judges it to perfection, that's the closest Harbhajan has got to a wicket so far today!

MN Samuels c Harbhajan Singh b Sehwag 87 (265m 159b 8x4 3x6) SR: 54.71

West Indies 562/6   S Chanderpaul 84* (200b 6x4 2x6)   V Sehwag 13.3-3-40-1

165.6

Harbhajan Singh to Ramdin, OUT, Harbhajan gets one to his name! flatter trajectory and on the middle and off stump line, Ramdin quickly goes down on one knee and sweeps it straight to Jaffer at backward square leg, West Indies seven down

D Ramdin c Jaffer b Harbhajan Singh 3 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

West Indies 570/7   S Chanderpaul 89* (204b 6x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 42-6-142-2

167.5

Harbhajan Singh to Taylor, OUT, Taylor departs! good length delivery, genuine off-spinner, Taylor steps forward and swings across the line, ball clips the leading edge and balloons up towards square leg, three fielders converge on it but Yuvraj who was moving across from short midwicket calls for it and holds on well to a fairly hard chance. Wicket number three for Harbhajan - Chanderpaul who is on 93 is running out of partners!

JE Taylor c Yuvraj Singh b Harbhajan Singh 2 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

West Indies 576/8   S Chanderpaul 93* (210b 6x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 42.5-6-145-3

169.4

Harbhajan Singh to Collins, OUT, nine down! well bowled doosra and Collins is beaten comprehensively, closes the face of the bat bit too early and the edge goes straight to Dravid at first slip, that shot was a celebration of nothingness!

PT Collins c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 1 (11m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

West Indies 581/9   S Chanderpaul 97* (216b 6x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 43.4-6-147-4

169.6

Harbhajan Singh to Collymore, OUT, what a mess! tossed up and turning in, Collymore just spreads his legs and leaves it through, ball crashes into the stumps! Chanderpaul is stranded on 97!

CD Collymore b Harbhajan Singh 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 581/10   S Chanderpaul 97* (216b 6x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 44-6-147-5
