Collymore to Dhoni, OUT, GONE! Short ball on off, Dhoni goes for his favorite cut shot but can only hit it to Dwayne Bravo in the slips, what a good catch, made it look so simple, another Indian falls prey to this disciplined bowling attack, they're in tatters here at Sabina Park, what a batting display, check one more for the Windies

Bravo to Kumble, OUT, Bravo gets his man - for another time in this series, Kumble stands up and plays the short ball defensively with a horizontal bat and plays on - the ball gets a shave off the edge of the bat and hits the base of offstump - Kumble goes for a fine 47, and West Indies have hit back again, right when matters were slipping out of hand, India are eight down now

84.1

Collymore to Dravid, OUT, what a biggie - ooh boy - Collymore does the job, gets The Wall - great seam position from one on off, Dravid just tamely pokes at that and Ramdin takes the faint edge, what an unfortunate end to a fine innings, so late in the day, Collymore strikes for West Indies, he's rewarded for an outstanding bowling performance today

R Dravid c †Ramdin b Collymore 81 (340m 215b 10x4 0x6) SR: 37.67

85.4

Taylor to Sreesanth, OUT, nine down - Harbhajan didnt want that last single, and see whats happened...didnt read the lenth at all, took his eyes off the ball and Sreesanth pays the price - he ducks into a rising delivery, ball hits his shoulder and crashes onto the stumps, he's gone for 0

S Sreesanth b Taylor 0 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 200/9   Harbhajan Singh 9* (18b)   JE Taylor 17.4-4-50-4

87.4

Taylor to Patel, OUT, that's it, all over, hurrah for Taylor - his maiden five-wicket haul in Tests - a perfectl directed ball short of a good length, it rises a tad and has Munaf swaying away and gloving it to Ramdin, who gleefully pouches it, wow, wow, good bowling, India undone for just 200 on the first day, Taylor leads his side off the field with a BIG grin on his face...

MM Patel c †Ramdin b Taylor 0 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
