Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, short in length moving away from Yuvraj who runs it down to third man


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.

G Gambhir c Simmons b Bravo 14 (23m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.69


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, no run, short in length, around the off and middle, Yuvraj leans forward to defend to the off side


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, no run, full and swinging down the leg side. Ramdin appeals for a catch. Yuvraj is bemused that it has not been given a wide. The replays seem to suggest that the ball didn't hit bat or pad


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, another single, down to third man.


Bravo to Dhoni, no run, short in length, coming in towards middle stump, Dhoni leans forward to push it to the on side of the pitch

India 30/3   DJ Bravo 1-0-2-1

Bravo to Dhoni, OUT, And Dhoni falls after a painful little knock. It was banged in short and outsdie off and Dhoni, actually played his best shot of the day. A shot full of intent. He rocked back to cut it hard and flat but couldn't clear the man stationed near the ropes at deep backward point. The captain is gone and Windies celebrate.

MS Dhoni c Fletcher b Bravo 11 (24m 23b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.82


Bravo to YK Pathan, 1 run, The sharp bouncer and Yusuf, who has also problems against the bouncers, fends it off somehow to the on side


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, Stop the press! it's the first boundary in seven overs! Short and wide, Yuvraj rocked back to cut it hard and to deep backward point boundary


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, Dropped by Fletcher at deep square leg region. Yuvraj flicked the full delivery in the air and Fletcher ran towards his left, appeared to have reached in time but threw in a dive instead of a lunge and the ball spilled out of his palms. He recovers to fire in a throw at the striker's end to try get a run out. Yusuf Pathan dives to get in the crease but seems to have injured his shoulder in the process. He is in tremendous pain. The physio is out there to treat the right shoulder.


Bravo to YK Pathan, no run, tails in towards the hips and bounds away off the thigh pad to Ramdin


Bravo to YK Pathan, 1 run, pushed to the on side for a single.

India 73/4   DJ Bravo 2-0-9-2

Bravo to YK Pathan, no run, from round the stumps, slower one outside off, Yusuf is early into the big drive and misses it completely


Bravo to YK Pathan, 1 run, the short-pitched delivery again has Yusuf in trouble. Plus that angle from round the stumps as well. He took his eyes off the ball and jabbed it away to the point region


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, very skilful shot. It was drifting towards middle and leg, full, and Yuvraj used his wrists superbly to flick it in the air but well to the left of the deep square leg fielder.


Bravo to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, moves outside leg, Bravo hurls across a yorker, dug out towards long-off


Bravo to YK Pathan, FOUR, Yusuf adapts much better to the bouncer this time. Perhaps, he was expecting it. It was slanting away from him, he stayed adjacent to the line, opened his bat-face and guided it through the vacant slip region


Bravo to YK Pathan, SIX, Yusuf goes down town now. Big over for India. It was full and Yusuf lifted it high in the air and the long-on fielder tumbled over the boundary while trying to take it.

India 97/4   DJ Bravo 3-0-25-2

Bravo to YK Pathan, OUT, Bravo cleans up Yusuf. 129.3 kmph yorker from round the stumps pegs back the off stump. Yusuf swung early, the bottom-hand coming off the handle in the end but no wood on leather. TImber!

YK Pathan b Bravo 31 (27m 23b 3x4 1x6) SR: 134.78


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, slower one outside off, Harbhajan adjusts to punch it to deep point region


Bravo to IK Pathan, OUT, And in the middle, his brother holes out to deep midwicket. He planted his front leg outside the leg stump, hit the full delivery straight to the man.

IK Pathan c Simmons b Bravo 2 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, Third man was in the circle and Bravo pushes it wide outside off from round the stumps. Harbhajan lunged out to slice it away past short third man


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, back over the stumps now, fullish delivery outside off stump and Harbhajan unfurls a very fine square drive. he hung on the back foot, opened the bat-face and wristed it past point


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, Three in a row. Harbhajan finishes the innings in style. He read the slower one early, went down on his knee and crashed it to the cowcorner.

India 153/7   DJ Bravo 4-0-38-4
