    0.5 Gone! Taylor gets him with a delivery that shaped away very late. The length drew Karthik forward before the ball tailed away to catch the outside edge. Superb delivery. Great to watch. 4/1
    1.2 What a start by the Windies. India two down and wobbling away. It wasn't a great delivery but hey try telling that to Gambhir. It was short in length and well outside off stump, Gambhir, rooted to the crease, has a lame poke at it. Edge and gone! The crowd roar. Sabina Park has come alive. The ball was full and well outside off stump, Gambhir's foot don't go anywhere but his bat does. 6/2
    1.4 Rampaul take a bow. Rohit Sharma is back in the hutch. The crowd roar. Awesome scenes here. Full and swinging away and Rohit doesn't lean into his drive. Edge and Ramdin almost clangs it but the ball bounds off his gloves to second slip. 'Thank you come again Rohit', Sabina Park seems to be saying as they go mad in celebration. Enter MSD. 7/3
    12.1 Big wicket. Yuvraj is gone to a wide delivery outside off stump. He saw the width and went after it hard but only managed it to edge behind. Taylor and co. are delighted to say the least. Almost a gift. West Indies won't complain. The shot was on; it was well outside off and Yuvraj's eyes must have lit up as he saw the width but he couldn't connect properly. 54/4
    48.2 he moves outside leg as he charges out but Taylor slips in a slower one. Dhoni tries to lunge across to cut but misses it. The boy on the burning deck falls finally. What a fine captain's knock it has been. 188/10
    14.2 done in by the short ball, an Indian batsman falling to such a delivery for the umpteenth time, banged it in just outside off, Yusuf was caught by surprise, it shot off the pitch, rapped him on his gloves and went through straight to Gayle at slip who took it easily over his head 57/5
    17.1 Ravindra Jadeja falls in almost similar fashion to the way he got out in the last game. It was a length delivery bursting through the off-stump channel, Jadeja was caught at the crease, just pushed lamely at it and the edge has been taken. West Indies climb all over India. 70/6
    20.4 Dhoni is in danger of being stranded here. Another edge from an Indian batsman. Yet another catch for Ramdin. It was full in length and in the troublesome channel outside off stump, Harbhajan drove inside the line and the ball caught the outside edge. Bravo erupts. His team-mates converge upon him. Dhoni stands alone. 81/7
    21.3 What a day for West Indies. And you could say the same thing for India as well. It wasbanged short in length and straightening outside off stump, Praveen didn't have much room, neither was he in great position but he went for the cut but was beaten by the extra bounce. The edge flew to first slip. 82/8
    47.3 Finally, RP falls. A valiant rear-guard action ends. He pulls weakly straight to midwicket. But what a fine fighting innings this has been. Well played RP. 183/9
