    5.6 caught at gully, and Shami's dream run continues. West Indies' big man is gone. It was back of a length, tucked him up for room. There was a little away movement and Gayle poked at it, with very little feet, got the shoulder of the bat and the ball lobbed to the left of gully where Rohit picks up a smart catch 25/1
    30.1 plenty of flight from Ojha, gets it to dip sharply, Powell looks to whip that pitched-up delivery to the leg side, he only ends up giving a catch to short leg, bat and then pad, once again Powell gets a start but doesn't make it count, India have their third 97/3
    24.4 he walks! Big outside edge as Dhoni leaps off his feet after collecting a good, sharp catch. It was tossed up on leg stump, so he had to play at that. But this time there was turn and bounce and Bravo's cheery little innings comes to a close 86/2
    40.4 wonderful work from Ojha, plenty of flight once more, not as much turn but some bounce there, pitching just outside off, at long last the outside edge from Samuels, easy take at slips, Samuels' struggles are over 140/4
    43.5 no 150 on his 150th Test for Chanders, at least on his first essay. Edged and this time Ashwin pouches it well. Peach of a ball from Bhuvneshwar, probably needed something like that to prise him out early, as this one was pitched back of a length on leg and seamed away enough to square him up. A fine nick is taken and Bhuvi this time exults. It was off his bowling that Ashwin dropped Kieran Powell earlier 148/5
    48.4 Oh, Vijay you beauty. That is an excellent catch to give Ashwin has his 99th wicket. There was some bounce again in this delivery, pitching on middle and turning away. He plods forward but played at it with hard hands, as the edge flies to gully. Vijay dives to his left and grabs a good 'un 162/6
    not out
    48.6 but now he's gone! Horrible shot as he goes for a wild slog and the West Indies captain goes as soon as he came. It was a simple off spinner, pitching on middle and turning only a bit. But playing across the line, he gets a leading edge that went straight in the air and Rohit Sharma settles under it to give Ashwin his 100th Test wicket, the fifth quickest to the mark 162/7
    49.6 another disappointing shot and another straight forward wicket as the crowd screams 'We want Sachin!' Pushed through on middle and it straightens just a bit. Shillingford goes down for a sweep, misses and is caught in front of the stumps 162/8
    51.2 and that's the end of Best. Dhoni had to juggle it to keep it safe in his gloves, but again, poor shot from the batsman. It was a fullish ball outside off but he goes for the sweep. The bottom edge is taken and deflects off Dhoni's gloves, onto his thighs and rides up towards his stomach before he holds on to it. That's his 250th dismissal 172/9
    55.2 and he has five and that's that. West Indies are all done. That was much slower and as a result bounced a lot more. Gabriel pushed forward but his defensive stroke only gets a fine edge as Dhoni rises with the ball and collects a smart catch, his 251st dismissal in Tests. 182/10

    13.4 the crowd erupts in Wankhede, surely the biggest cheer ever for an Indian wicket at an Indian ground, Shillingford gets the second of the over, as Vijay bat-pads a catch, there's a wait to check on the no-ball, and the cheer just gets louder when Vijay's dismissal is confirmed 77/2
    13.2 there's the breakthrough against the run of play, Dhawan looks to sweep from well outside off, doesn't connect as well as he needed to, and he holes out to deep square leg, a rare moment to celebrate for West Indies, the crowd likes it as well, you know why 77/1
    77.5 there's another wicket for Shillingford, Pujara has been scratchy since his hundred, here's another leading edge and he's gone caught-and-bowled, Pujara falls for 113 354/5
    47.5 oh it's over! Tendulkar leaves! There was a brief silence before everyone realised it was time to applaud. It was a flatter delivery outside off and Tendulkar tried to cut it fine, but it bounced extra and the thick edge went quickly towards Sammy at first slip, who takes a good catch in front of his face. The silence returns as Tendulkar disappears in the pavilion. Strange eeriness at Wankhede 221/3
    69.4 that's gone! Shillingford gets another one! This one is fuller and going across the the batsman, Kohli came forward to defend, but that one kept going away with the angle from round the wicket, a low deflection is neatly taken by Sammy at slips and isn't Shillingford pumped? he seems to be the only bowler picking up wickets for West Indies 315/4
    not out
    80.5 this time he does nick it through, not to the keeper though, it is Darren Sammy once more, reward for Best after a decent over in which he tested Dhoni around off, West Indies may be on the mat but Best is pumped up, a series of exuberant punches to celebrate the wicket 365/6
    88.2 a wicket for Gabriel and it's the pull shot that has caused Ashwin's downfall! He has been playing it well all day, but this one just came in a touch quicker and he top-edged it. Gabriel ran in and took a comfortable catch 409/7
    89.5 Sammy takes his fifth catch in the innings, and this was probably the best of the lot, Shillingford gets the ball to spins towards leg stump, Bhuvneshwar looks to flick it, Sammy is lurking at leg gully and takes it low and to his left, very little rime for him to react there, and that's the fifth for Shillingford as well 414/8
    90.2 shortish ball and that is pulled away towards deep midwicket, there was a bit of hesitation before deciding on taking the second, and what a throw that is from Kieran Powell in the deep, direct hit and Ojha has no chance, he can keep running to the pavilion 415/9
    107.6 El Tino takes the catch at deep square leg, right on the edge! Shami wanted to send this one into the stands, but Tino twas there.. He gets up and slams the ball on the ground in frustration perhaps 495/10

    21.3 there's wicket No. 5, Gayle looking to cut off the back foot, top edges it to the keeper, this was a slightly quicker one from Ojha, good take by Dhoni, another one for Ojha, will this match last beyond lunch? 87/5
    6.2 oh that's a waste of a wicket! Powell gives it away by lofting it straight to long off, the lone man in the deep. He came charging down the pitch and had to wait a little longer as Ashwin delivered it at a slower pace, and that probably messed up his timing. Shami at long-off came running forward and took a good, low diving catch 15/1
    9.4 oh that's the nightwatchman's end! He has been given lbw! It was a quicker flatter delivery, but was it going too far down the leg side? Possibly. it pitched on the middle and leg stump line and didn't straighten enough I reckon..Nigel Llong disagrees 28/2
    12.2 and they are falling in a heap! Ashwin comes round the wicket, gets it to turn and bounce, it catches the outside edge and settles into the palms of Vijay at second slip.. It's all turning into a bad dream for West Indies 43/3
    17.3 there's wicket No. 4, Samuels caught miles out of the crease as he jumps out and looks to launch that towards long-on, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball, the ball spins away past the flashing blade, Dhoni has tons of time to take off the bails 74/4
    38.2 that was plumb! Tossed up on the half stump, a tentative Chanderpaul was half forward and his bat was behind the front pad as he looked to defend forward, a nothing shot really, that skidded through and struck the front pad, very easy decision 157/7
    23.4 all too easy this for India, Ojha gets his third of the morning, Deonarine looking to drive can only push it back to Ojha for a simple caught-and-bowled chance, this is embarrassing from West Indies, nine wickets in the game for Ojha, currently his best match figures 89/6
    not out
    39.6 a clueless Sammy's misery comes to an end! The arm ball this time, landed on middle and leg, Sammy was forward, struck on the pad and heading towards the stumps, Llong gives him out immediately 162/8
    44.4 lbw off the sweep! 9 down now, tossed up and he gets down to sweep, played too early, struck on the thigh, plumb and an easy decision 185/9
    46.6 the middle stump is flattened! Shami gets him with the swing he's known for! This was full and Gabriel was pushing forward, breaches his defense and the middle stump lands a couple of yards back 187/10
