India tour of West Indies, 1st ODI: West Indies v India at Kingston, Jun 26, 2009
India won by 20 runs
26 June 2009 (50-over match)

Taylor to Gambhir, OUT, Ooh la la! the bouncer has done the trick. Again. That sinking Twenty20 feeling again. Well-directed pacy bouncer on the middle stump, from round the stumps, Gambhir took his eyes off the ball, yanked his head away from the line but tried to go through with the pull shot. Mistake. The ball took the top edge and lobbed to square leg.

G Gambhir c DJ Bravo b Taylor 13 (16m 14b 0x4 1x6) SR: 92.85

India 25/1   KD Karthik 9* (13b 1x4)   JE Taylor 2.3-0-9-1

Baker to RG Sharma, OUT, Would you believe it? Another man goes down to the short-pitched delivery. Rohit goes for an unconvincing pull and top edges it to deep square-leg region. Taylor hadn't bowled a bouncer at Rohit and had kept him waiting. And Lionel Baker threw in the knockout punch with a short delivery outside off stump and Rohit tried to fetch it from there.

RG Sharma c DJ Bravo b Baker 4 (9m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 32/2   KD Karthik 12* (18b 1x4)   LS Baker 3.2-0-19-1

Bernard to Karthik, OUT, The paddle-scoop has done him in this time. He fetched it from outside off but only scooped it straight up for Ramdin to hold a simple catch. Bernard had taken pace off that ball

KD Karthik c †Ramdin b Bernard 67 (123m 77b 6x4 1x6) SR: 87.01

India 167/3   Yuvraj Singh 71* (70b 5x4 3x6)   DE Bernard 5.4-0-35-1

DJ Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, And Yuvraj is gone now. Storm abates. It was full and down the leg side, poor delivery actually, Yuvraj edges the flick behind the wicket and Ramdin dives to his right to take a very fine catch. What a knock though from Yuvraj. Powerpacked and entertaining. It was a pleasure to watch.

Yuvraj Singh c †Ramdin b DJ Bravo 131 (134m 102b 10x4 7x6) SR: 128.43

India 253/4   MS Dhoni 23* (25b 1x6)   DJ Bravo 5.1-0-28-1

DJ Bravo to Jadeja, OUT, Two in two. It was full and angling away from Jadeja who has a lame poke at it. Fatal.

RA Jadeja c †Ramdin b DJ Bravo 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 253/5   MS Dhoni 23* (25b 1x6)   DJ Bravo 5.2-0-28-2

Taylor to Pathan, OUT, Dhoni falls, attempting to steal a leg bye. It moved past the hurried prod and rolled towards Ramdin. Dhoni rushed across but is caught short of the crease by direct hit from Ramdin

MS Dhoni run out 41 (81m 46b 2x4 1x6) SR: 89.13

India 298/6   YK Pathan 22* (27b 1x4 1x6)   JE Taylor 8.2-1-59-1
