    11.4 gets too much underneath that ball, and Williams has broken the partnership. Hard length, on off stump, not short enough for the pull. Doesn't have enough time to get on the back foot, and ends up shovelling it in the air, towards deep midwicket, where Hayden Walsh judges it nicely 135/1
    19.4 bouncer, angling into a wide line outside off, and Rahul top-edges an attempted hook, which Pooran gets comfortably under behind the stumps. They're checking with the third umpire for height, and it's at around shoulder height when Rahul meets it, so he has to walk back, nine short of a hundred 233/3
    12.2 full, wide of off stump, and Pant goes for the big drive and picks out long-off. Not a bad shot, and his instructions must have been to go after the bowling from ball one, but the ball is slightly off-pace, and he doesn't get enough power or elevation to beat the fielder 138/2

    2.6 slower ball, Simmons swings across the line again and finally gets some bat, but unfortunately for him, it's a leading edge that goes high up in the air over point, who runs back - never easy to do - keeps his eyes on the ball and takes it comfortably. Shami, playing his first T20I in over two years strikes in his first over, and an excellent over it was 17/2
    1.5 King falls! It was a slower ball, King made room and threw his hands at the length ball, he had to stretch a little and couldn't get any power, the fielder, who had just been stationed at deep cover settles under it and takes it comfortably 12/1
    9.3 change of angle does the trick but it had little to do with the wicket! Kuldeep could not have been luckier, it was a full toss from around the wicket, Hetmyer swung hard but mistimed it straight down long-on's throat. Leggies are notorious for striking off full tosses and long hops, here's one for Kuldeep 91/4
    3.1 short and wide outside off, and India are already putting on a show in the field, the third man Shivam Dube had to make quite a lot of ground running to his left and needed a dive to eventually get his hands under the ball, keeps control of the ball even as he falls, and Nicholas Pooran goes for a duck. A wicket each for the three India seamers as Chahar gets into the act 17/3
    14.6 gone. Another shoulder-high short ball from Bhuvneshwar. They're not easy to hit, especially from an off-stump line, and he goes for the pull and only gets it as far as the fielder at deep midwicket. End of an excellent innings from Pollard - he must have surely worried India considerably even though West Indies are still 100 runs away from their target 141/6
    11.1 wrong'un, nice and slow, starting on middle and off and spinning further away. It's not full enough for Holder to hit confidently against the turn, and he has to reach well in front of his body to try and get to the pitch of it. Has to go for it anyway, such is the situation, and Manish Pandey sprints to his left at long-on to grab on to the steepling top-edge 103/5
    16.5 bowled him. Looks to walk across and AB it over short fine leg, but can't put bat to this full ball that crashes into the middle of leg stump 152/7
    19.2 gone, seven down. Length ball outside off, and he opens his bat face and scoops a simple catch to Jadeja at backward point. Was the knuckle ball, and he didn't pick it. Ended up with far less pace to work with than he'd anticipated 169/8
