    43.5 No 200 for Rohit this time wide outside off, he went to slash it again. No feet movement, perhaps the tiredness is setting in, and he only got a top edge that was taken by Hemraj, diving forward at short third man 312/3
    11.5 And Keemo Paul does the Gabbar celebration to send Dhawan back! The audacity. Love it! Short outside off again, and Dhawan pulls this straight down midwicket's throat. A ball waiting to be punished, but Dhawan finds the only infielder on the leg side 71/1
    16.4 no hundred for Kohli today! Length ball outside off, and Kohli tries to dab this down to third man. Plays it inside the line of the ball as the ball seams away. Open face of the bat, and the delivery ensures it takes the outside of his bat. Stunned silence at the CCI 101/2
    47.1 direct hit ends Rayudu's innings came down the track, but the bowler shortened his length and Rayudu couldn't free his arms, ended up bunting it towards wide mid-off. Wonderful work by Fabian Allen to run to his right, pick up and throw down the stumps at his bowling end in one motion. Catches Rayudu well short and ends a superb innings 344/4
    48.3 soft dismissal full ball on the pads, and Dhoni flicks it. Seemed to have got hold of it too, but it went straight to short fine leg. Anti-climatic dismissal, but the drop the previous ball hasn't cost West Indies much 355/5

    4.2 full outside off, and that's been plucked out of thin air! Reaches forward to try and lift a drive over cover, but Rayudu tiptoes and times his jump to perfection and gives India the breakthrough 20/1
    5.2 hara-kiri! Nonchalantly reverse-flicked from cover, and the ball rolls onto the non-striker's stumps! Samuels defended this to Kohli and Powell was looking for the single. Uses his wrists to flick it and it hits middle stump. Powell's nowhere near the crease 20/3
    4.4 Kuldeep with a direct hit! Defended off the back foot to mid on, and Kuldeep picked the ball and threw it in one single motion. Hope's diving effort is simply not good enough! Gone for a duck 20/2
    13.4 skilful bowling from the rookie he's been bringing them back in so far, but this one went with the angle. Samuels went for the drive but it flew off his outside edge. Rohit at first slip makes no errors and holds the ball safely over his head 56/6
    9.3 slow finger of death from the umpire but Hetmyer reviews. Length ball, slower ball and coming into Hetmyer's pads. Tries to defend towards the leg side but the ball beats his bat and hits his back leg. Impact's on middle stump, this should be crashing. Ball-tracking, however, says 'clipping middle stump'... so West Indies keep the review, but Hetmyer must walk back 45/4
    11.3 through him! angled across, pitching on off and straightens. Goes like a homing missile through the gap between expansive bat and pad. West Indies are sinking fast 47/5
    not out
    18.5 They still can't read Kuldeep's googly Went for the big drive, got the outside edge, and Rohit is infallible in the slips. Takes this low to his left while half-diving 77/7
    22.4 c Rohit b Kuldeep once again! Length ball on middle, and the googly goes away from Nurse. Tries to free his arms and cut a shot behind square, but the edge flies to first slip. Nurse winces in pain after getting out. He's holding his right hand while walking back to the dugout 101/8
    27.5 MSD whips the bails! And Keemo Paul is walking even before the third umpire can make the decision. Drawn forward by a length ball outside off, misses the defense because the ball is turning away, and then the keeper spends absolutely no time in disrupting the stumps. Windies nine down 132/9
    36.2 Rohit Sharma beat West Indies by nine runs! Length ball on middle, and the googly goes past Roachs' outside edge and clips the top of off stump! 153/10
