1.1

Edwards to RG Sharma, FOUR, Fidel serves a short-pitched delivery to his IPL team-mate and Rohit responds with a pull through midwicket. It was quite pacy delivery, 149.4 kmph, and Rohit did well to play the horizontal shot

1.2

Edwards to RG Sharma, OUT, Undaunted by the pulled four, Fidel simply cranks up another short-pitched delivery from back of length.. Rohit is beaten for the pace and by the extra bounce, top edges the pull to square leg. Great start from Windies. Taylor served up a fiery first over and now, Fidel has started in a similar vein.

3.1

Edwards to Gambhir, 1 run, short in length, outside off, tapped to third man

3.2

Edwards to Raina, no run, 150.6 kmph sharp bouncer on the middle stump, Raina ducks. Raina has had problems in the past against the bouncer. Let's see how he goes today.

3.3

Edwards to Raina, no run, length delivery on the off stump line, opens the bat-face and guides it to point

3.4

Edwards to Raina, no run, 151.1 kmph bouncer and there we go. Raina is in trouble. He looks uncomfortable as he swats it away limply to square leg

3.5

Edwards to Raina, 1 wide, fuller but just down the leg side and in T20, it's a wide

3.5

Edwards to Raina, OUT, Full in length and slanting away from Raina, who after the bouncers, was hanging on the back foot. He simply hung his bat out to dry and Ramdin says thank you as he dives neatly to his left to take it inches off the turf. Raina stood his ground, the umpires weren't sure whether it carried and they went upstairs. Replays confirm it went in cleanly. Gone! Ramdin almost knocked Gayle off in attempt to throw the ball up in the air, while celebrating.

SK Raina c †Ramdin b Edwards 5 (12m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Edwards to YK Pathan, 1 run, bouncing into the rib-cage, Yusuf is cramped and jabs it away to square leg

17.4

Edwards to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Fidel terminates a superb innings from Yuvraj. Again, it was the short-pitched ball that did the trick. Yuvraj top-edges the pull and this time it lobs straight to the on side and Fidel positions himself under it. A very fine entertaining knock comes to an end.

17.5

Edwards to YK Pathan, 1 run, The bouncer troubles Yusuf. Again. He hopped, eyes off the ball and stabbed it off the outer edge to gully

17.6

Edwards to IK Pathan, no run, Another short-pitched delivery, head high at 90 mph, Irfan is late on the pull and the white ball flies to Ramdin. Irfan is a good player of the short-pitched bowling. So it should be interesting few overs.
