View dismissal CH Gayle* c †Dhoni b Nehra 27 16 14 6 0 192.85
3.4 the break proves Gayle undoing! It was a hit-me ball, short and wide, Gayle went for his trademark cut but got a thick edge, probably due to a bit of extra bounce, straight to Dhoni, India strike. 27/1
View dismissal RS Morton st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 22 70 34 2 0 64.70
12.3 stumped, brilliantly done, beaten through the air again, saw him coming down and fired it short outside off, Morton made no contact and Dhoni did the rest, finding him miles short 78/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan run out (Gambhir/†Dhoni) 62 90 59 5 1 105.08
20.5 from Pathan, run out, poor calling there, there was no second in it, worked away behind square and he turns back to run in for the second but a powerful throw from Gautam Gambhir beats his valiant dive, Dhoni has no trouble clipping the bails to end his impressive knock 135/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Nehra b Pathan 15 23 14 2 0 107.14
18.3 for a moment it seemed it would clear the ropes, swept it well to reach backward square leg but didn't time it as well as he would have liked, Nehra stood patiently, judged it well and ensured he didn't lose his balance once he had cupped it just inside the boundary, important breakthrough 125/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo c †Dhoni b Nehra 14 32 19 1 0 73.68
25.6 excellent catch by Dhoni, full and wide, goes hard at the drive, gets a thick edge and the Indian captain flings himself to his right to pluck that one-handed and see the back of Bravo 173/6
View dismissal DM Bravo b Nehra 21 16 15 3 0 140.00
25.1 timber! In the blockhole on middle, Darren makes room to swing that past midwicket but misses and the stumps take a beating! 170/5
D Ramdin not out 14 6 6 1 1 233.33
View dismissal JE Taylor c I Sharma b Harbhajan Singh 1 1 2 0 0 50.00

View dismissal KD Karthik run out (Rampaul) 47 60 43 5 1 109.30
12.1 Gayle to Gambhir, run out, Karthik is walking back, Gambhir played the cut, Rampaul took aim from point and threw down the stumps at the striker's end to beat Karthik's dive as he attempted to complete the single, there was a bit of hesitation in the middle and those precious micro-seconds of uncertainty cost him is wicket 84/1
View dismissal G Gambhir c †Ramdin b Benn 44 73 38 2 0 115.78
15.1 he's edged it! Slightly short on the off, spin in a touch, tried to turn it into the leg side, got a faint inside edge straight into Ramdin's gloves, crucial wicket 108/2

View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c DM Bravo b Bernard 2 8 6 0 0 33.33
16.6 Yuvraj has holed out! This is a massive blow. Full on middle and Yuvraj's eyes lit up, tried to clear long-on but didn't get the desired distance, Darren Bravo held his nerve in the deep to latch onto a pressure catch, West Indies are pulling it back 117/3
View dismissal RG Sharma c Bernard b DJ Bravo 11 19 9 0 0 122.22
20.5 he's skied that, length ball on middle, was the slower one again, tried to clear deep midwicket but mistimed it, Bernard ran in from deep midwicket and took it with little difficulty, are India throwing it away here? 148/4
