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

India 12/1   G Gambhir 7* (5b 1x4)   FH Edwards 0.2-0-4-1

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

India 27/2   G Gambhir 14* (12b 2x4)   FH Edwards 1.5-0-8-2

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

India 29/3   Yuvraj Singh 2* (2b)   DJ Bravo 0.2-0-1-1

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

India 66/4   Yuvraj Singh 28* (26b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 1.1-0-2-2

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.

Yuvraj Singh c & b Edwards 67 (55m 43b 6x4 2x6) SR: 155.81

India 130/5   YK Pathan 23* (16b 2x4 1x6)   FH Edwards 3.4-0-23-3

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

India 140/6   IK Pathan 2* (2b)   DJ Bravo 3.1-0-25-3

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

India 141/7   Harbhajan Singh 1* (1b)   DJ Bravo 3.3-0-26-4
