Watermelons for hats, bearded ladies in wedding dresses, pink wigs - it's almost enough to take your mind off the cricket, says Andrew Hughes

Gurinderpal Ajimal: "I hope the batting order is changed to allow Suresh Raina to come in at No.3. He had a good IPL at that position, so why Dhoni is at 3 who hasn't done it with the bat yet and Raina is at 5 is beyond me."

Robert Murray: "Thank God they drop the "X" Man" (Xavier Marshall)

All set for the start. The batsmen walk out. Big crowd in. Lots of Indian fans.

0.1

Taylor to Gambhir, no run, lovely delivery to start off. From round the stumps, Taylor curved it in towards the off stump, defended to the off side

0.2

Taylor to Gambhir, FOUR, But he strays to the pad this time and Gambhir whips it off his hips to fine-leg boundary. The short fine-leg is in.

0.3

Taylor to Gambhir, no run, 142.7 kmph sharp bouncer, coming at the face of Gambhir who hops to push it down to the off side. Taylor has a lovely slow bouncer as well.

0.4

Taylor to Gambhir, 1 run, 139.6 kmph kicking up from back of length, tapped close on the off side, towards point and they rush across for the single

0.5

Taylor to RG Sharma, 1 run, Taylor stays round the stumps to Rohit as well. Interesting. He slips in a slower one, that dips full on the middle stump line, Rohit lunges out to adjust to it and pushes it to wide mid-on where Chanders fields

0.6

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.

End of over 1 (8 runs) India 8/0 (RR: 8.00)

    • G Gambhir 7 (5b 1x4)
    • RG Sharma 1 (1b)
    • JE Taylor 1-0-8-0
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.

RG Sharma c Simmons b Edwards 5 (6m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

And I am Sriram Veera, your commentator for the game. Binoy George is on the scoring duty.

1.4

Edwards to Gambhir, no run, 146.5 kmph bouncer over the middle stump line, Gambhir ducks

1.5

Edwards to Gambhir, 1 run, pushed to the off side for a single

End of over 2 (6 runs) India 14/1 (RR: 7.00)

2.2

Taylor to Gambhir, 1 wide, Gambhir walks down the track and Taylor hurls a high bouncer that sails well above Gambhir

2.2

Taylor to Gambhir, 1 leg bye, Again, he walks down the wicket, Taylor keeps it fuller this time but drifts towards the pad, rolls away to short fine-leg and Ramdin rushes after it and stops with a dive

2.3

    • FH Edwards 1-0-6-1
3.1

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

Rana Ray: "Going to be a pretty interesrting battle with no Sehwag and a resurgent West Indies with Chris Gayle. The Indian youngstars hardly played any good pace attack recently and India hardly has any tall batsman to better handle the bouncers."

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.

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

3.4

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

4.2

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

4.3

4.4

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

    • Yuvraj Singh 3 (5b)
    • DJ Bravo 1-0-2-1
    • FH Edwards 2-0-9-2

Emran: "I think the issue of height is over-rated. Sunil Gavaskar was not a tall person at all; yet, he had no problem dealing with bouncers from much better bowlers than the current West Indian duo. The main issue is whether a batsman knows how to deal with them." Amen.
