    26.4 oh Simmons what have you done! He was batting so well but he chose to run after pushing the ball on the leg side, Tiwary (who just can't stay out of the game!) swooped on the ball from square leg and hit the stumps at the bowler's end direct with a flat throw. Simmons was well out, doesn't even need a replay 103/5
    1.5 Hyatt is gone, and he always looked like going. Ishant got the ball to rise again from a good length, Hyatt stayed in his crease and just fended at it. It hit the top half of the outside edge and lobbed tamely towards backward point. A duck on debut and 1 today, a minor improvement at least. 3/1
    4.5 caught at point! A tame dismissal. The length was a little shorter and the line a little wider. It seamed away from Sarwan who moved back and cut it. He wasn't able to hit it in the gap or along the ground. Manoj Tiwary barely had to move to catch it. 12/2
    15.6 caught at deep midwicket! Bravo steps out to Mishra once again, he isn't quite to the pitch but he goes through with the shot, lifting the ball off his pads towards the deep where Manoj Tiwary moves to his right and takes a well-judged catch on the move. Bravo gives it away again. The Umar Akmal of West Indies? 65/3
    23.1 he's been given lbw! Samuels thrust forward to a googly from Mishra, and didn't pick it. He was hit on the pad as he tried to defend and his edgy innings is over. Will need to see replays to confirm that was a good decision. Samuels had a good stride forward and was hit on the knee roll. Replays indicate the ball would have gone over the stumps 89/4
    44.2 huge blow for West Indies! Pollard has been caught at long-off. He backed away towards leg to hit through the off, Ashwin bowled a full ball outside leg, denying him room, and Pollard lofted it straight to the fielder on the boundary 199/6
    48.2 caught at long-on, Baugh charged Praveen and pulled the shorter and slower ball straight to Kohli on the boundary 240/7
    48.3 caught at long-on again! Russell stood in his crease and also swiped at a length ball that was a touch slower. The bat turned in his hand but the ball still carried towards Kohli who took the catch while running to his left 240/8

    9.2 Parthiv has fallen within jim's range, tried to drive on the up but seemed to check the followthrough in the end, the ball went low to Sammy's left and the captain does extremely well to get a hand down and manage to hold on, holds up the ball for effect too 41/2
    5.4 it is over for Manoj Tiwary, he has looked very nervous out there, and another of those prods has done him in, Sammy pitched it up, close to off stump, leaving the batsmen who pushed at it with an open face and the edge was gobbled up by Baugh, Bravo looks relieved 20/1
    20.6 stumped, was bowled flat and a little wider, Kohli made room to drive it through the off side, it turns away and misses the bat, Baugh collects well and takes off the bails in no time, good work with the gloves, Kohli has to go, his foot was in the air, big wicket 82/4
    16.3 that is the end of Badrinath;s struggle, the short ball has consumed him, Russell has been bending his back to get the short one to climb up, this one was angled down leg, Badri got too far outside the line again and wen for a half-hearted pull, and only ended up gloving it towards Baugh who took a superb one-handed catch 62/3
    30.6 Rohit undoes all the good work with his version of the slog sweep, ball turns away from around leg, bounces a bit, and the resulting top edge swirls in the air, Darren Bravo is under it, and he manages t hold on, Martin is smiling widely 124/7
    26.6 Suresh Raina falls to the slog sweep, it was there for the shot, full around middle, he decided to go for it but hit it straight to midwicket who timed the leap to take the catch, Martin is pumped up, jumps in the air as his team mates rush to him 111/5
    27.4 it was Raina in the previous game, it is YK Pathan in this one, a shot that is not on at all, long off in place and he decides to go over his head off his second delivery, does not time it at all, and just shoves it in the air to long off who comes in to accept the gift, utterly senseless shot selection 114/6
    37.5 it is the early season of gifting and Ashwin carries on with it, length ball way outside off stump, he walks and stands far from the stumps, tries to scoop it over short fine leg without bending to get the distance, and ends up spooning a simple catch to that man 145/9
    35.1 that is another one, another gift, this time from PK, backed away a touch to a short of a length ball, and just parried it limply to point 138/8
    not out
    38.6 Baugh continues to break the stumps in a jiffy, was Ishant;s foot back in time as he missed this one outside off and overbalanced while trying to loft with the turn, replays show that it is very tight, well he has been given, Ishant looks surprised, at least he does not have to face Roach 146/10
