Taylor to Gambhir, 2 runs, just over second slip What a cracker of a bouncer. That almost took out Gambhir. Superb delivery. Gambhir hopped in alarm, taking the eyes of it and fended it in an ungainly manner but the ball popped just behind the leaping slip fielder.

Bravo to Gambhir, OUT, Three down now. What a delightful start by the Windies. It was the short-pitched delivery that did the trick. Gambhir top edged the pull and Lendl ran back from square leg and lunged forward in the end to take a very fine catch. First Ramdin and now Lendl; the West Indian fielders are doing a great job.
