    6.5 peach of a ball and he's caught in the slips. Pitched on a length and jagged away from middle stump, Rahul's bat had already come down and it caught the edge to fly to Cornwall at first slip for a comfortable catch 32/1
    40.5 cuts it to Cornwall at first slip. This was too close to cut, back of a length and on the fourth stump line, he plays it from very close to his body, trying to force it away but gets a healthy edge that the debutant gobbles up. He's had a hand in all three dismissals so far 115/3
    16.5 cut straight to point! Wicket number one for Cornwall, and it's arguably India's best player of spin. Short of a length and skidding on in the corridor. Stepped out four balls and might have been waiting for the short one. It came and he snatched at it, trying to hit it too hard. It gets big on him late - Cornwall is a tall man - and he ends up getting it off the thick outside edge. Easy catch 46/2
    72.1 and the move works immediately! Beautiful lines by Holder, on a perfect length. Pitches around off and Kohli is bringing his bat down to play it straight but away from the body a bit, and it jags away the perfect amount to take the outside edge and go through to the keeper. 202/5
    59.5 feathered through and he's gone! Another debutant gets a catch, this time it's Hamilton behind the stumps. Dangled this in the corridor, outside off, and there was some movement in the air. Rahane was perhaps a bit casual in his forward prod, and snicks it behind 164/4

    140.1 that's five for Holder in the innings and 100 wickets in Test cricket. Deserved to finish off the innings, he's been tireless and on target through the innings. This was bowled fuller and angling into Vihari, who made room to try and loft it over extra cover. Ends up getting a leading edge that is pouched comfortably by mid-off. End of a fine innings. 416/10
    90.1 got him first ball with a lovely inswinger! What a start! Holder couldn't take the new ball immediately yesterday because he'd been off the field for seven overs. A pity because he was their best bowler. And he's shown why immediately. Floats up a length ball outside off that swings in very late. Pant is leaning into to drive on the up, but that hoops back a long way and is through him and past the inside edge to clatter the stumps. What a start 264/6
    110.1 Cornwall wins the battle of attrition. Jadeja had been supremely patient so far, but finally getting to face Cornwall's spin, he goes for a big slog to a length ball outside off. Cornwall's height means the bounce is more than Jadeja accounted for and it takes the top edge to balloon for the easiest of catches to mid-on 302/7
    138.4 holes out to deep midwicket. Ishant's adventure ends. Steps down the track and gets to the pitch of the ball, lofts this and connects well, but straight to the fielder. Standing ovation from the team as he walks back 414/8
    139.2 caught behind. Great catch and good ball. Gets it to bounce outside off, and Shami is going for the cut, but he hasn't judged the bounce at all. Gets a top edge that is well held by the keeper. Both Test debutants combining for a wicket there. 416/9

    12.5 got him! There's only so long you can resist Bumrah. Not when he's in this bowling zone. He's got five wickets in the blink of an eye. This was bowled fuller and drew Brathwaite into the drive. He went for it, and only got a thin edge. Excellent catch by Pant behind the stumps, diving to his right. 22/5
    6.4 got him! Oh it was coming. An over of sustained pressure from Bumrah. Shortens the length this time, gets him on the back foot. But it's still full enough to move marginally away from him and take the outside edge. Pant holds on high to his left. Good take that 9/1
    8.2 taken low at second slip! Bumrah remains unplayable to this West Indies top order. Length ball swinging away from middle stump. He had no choice but to play at that. Didn't even look to push at it or anything. It's off the high part of the outside edge and KL Rahul lunges low to his right to grab onto this. Bumrah got Campbell and Bravo identically with inswingers last match. He's got them identically with outswingers this time. 13/2
    8.3 lbw appeal and given! Brooks reviews. That looked dead on front. Length and swung in from outside off. It's hit his back pad...but was there front pad first? Yes, but that doesn't matter. He was looking to go across the line, was trapped in front of middle stump and that is hitting leg. Review lost, wicket lost. 13/3
    8.4 Kohli reviews an lbw decision. It's a full inswinger that raps Chase above the toe in front of middle stump as he looks to flick. Kohli was the only one interested in that review. It swung a long way down, did the others think it was going down? Well, they were wrong if they did! That is hitting leg stump. All three reds! Jasprit Bumrah has a hat-trick! You could hear Kohli screeching that there wasn't an inside edge on that. it's paid off. What a bowler. Chase was pinned with a stride across. He didn't even want to review! 13/4
    24.6 through him! Out out out, in. It's the one beating the inside edge that does Hetymyer in the end. The long game from Shami? Slides this into the corridor, full and driving length. Hetmyer takes the bait, wants to drive on the rise. Is comprehensively beaten on the inside edge and that knocks offmiddle stump 67/6
    28.1 this is unbelievable. Just give him the ball and a West Indian wicket will fall. This time it didn't need a traditional Bumrah magic delivery. It was the start of a new over, so he bowled it back of a length and outside off, safe. But Holder decided that having a thrash at it would be a good idea and only managed to send it ballooning up in the air to mid-off. Rohit settles under it and gobbles it up. Bumrah has six. 78/7
    46.3 edged to second slip! Length ball, wide outside off, and he tried to punch square but the ball found his edge. Kohli jumped to his left to send the debutant back for five 117/9
    37.1 short ball does the trick. Cornwall is caught completely by surprise and this is a terrific bouncer that takes off and is headed for his throat. Cornwall ends up fending it awkwardly, and the outside edge loops up for a comfortable catch to Rahane at gully. First proper short ball he's received this morning and it has resulted in his wicket 97/8
    47.1 they're all out! Will India ask WI to follow-on? Full outside off from Jadeja, and he tries to smack one over cover. Slices it to the fielder on the 30-yard circle, and India have bowled WI out for 117 117/10

    20.1 nicked off behind and Rahul's struggle ends. Great line from Roach and though Rahul has been batting for a while, he hasn't looked fluent, so it's not surprising that he pushes at it away from body fairly limply too. The ball is moving away and takes the edge for a simple catch to the keeper 36/2
    4.6 huge appeal for lbw and given! Agarwal chats with Rahul and opts to review. This was a length ball outside off that was angling into middle stump. Agarwal tried to defend but couldn't bring the bat forward in time. Replays show that it's clipping middle and leg stump, so Agarwal has to make the long walk back. India keep the review though 9/1
    28.6 third slip gets in on the action! Length ball that takes some extra bounce, and this time the ball angles into Pujara instead of seaming away. He is surprised by the bounce but prefers to meet the ball in a tentative-looking cut but the ball takes an edge and flies to the right of Shamarh Brooks 57/4
    20.2 that's outstanding from Roach. And Kohli has gone for a first-ball duck. Excellent lines from Roach once again, in that channel on fourth stump, forcing Kohli to play at it, but gets it to move away enough so that it takes the edge and goes to the keeper. 36/3

    7.4 Kohli holds on! Shami's discipline finally earns him a wicket. Full, outside off, and Campbell looks for the drive. Slashes at it, and Kohli - at third slip - takes this comfortably. Now both openers are back in the shed 37/2
    2.3 there's the first one! Teasing delivery, full outside off, and this one seams away as Brathwaite prods forward to defend. Takes the outside edge, and Pant makes no mistake 9/1

    53.2 a direct-hit and Brooks was lazily pushing his bat back like he wasn't even expecting a throw. And he'll pay for it! That is sensational fielding from Kohli. Length ball just outside off, pushed past silly point and takes a walk down the pitch. Kohli sprints to his left at cover and turns around from the right before he picks the ball up. In the process he's taken out a few seconds because as soon as his full rotation is complete, the ball is out of his hands. And then it hits the stumps on the bounce. Sharp, sharp stuff. And the exact opposite from the batsman, who is walking back with no vigour. A shame for a well-fought innings to end that way 177/6
    27.5 Reiffel raises his finger! Full on off, and skidding into his pads. He tries to defends but the ball goes past the inside-half of his bat and hits the front leg. WI review. Replays show that it pitched on leg, struck him on front of leg, and would've 'just about clipped' leg stump. Umpire's call, says ball-tracking, so Chase has to go 97/3
    28.4 pocketed by extra cover and Hetmyer is smiling, probably in disbelief. Sharma offered Hetmyer the full ball for the drive, and he falls for the trap. Throws his hands at this, and drives it straight to Agarwal who was crouching to take the catch. Kohli began celebrating as soon as Hetmyer played that shot - suggesting that the fielder was placed there for that very reason 98/4
    48.4 taken by the keeper! Length ball outside off, reaches out for it away from the body. Decent amount of outside edge on that, carries low, but is a regulation catch. Kept poking, and as predicted, one has caught the edge. Bumrah and Kohli looked in the long-off direction and told someone to shut up with a finger on their lips. Not sure whom. Perhaps some spectators? 159/5
    59.5 middle stump gone! But they'll check for the no ball. Full on off, and angling into middle stump. Holder misses the slog, and Jadeja knocks his stumps back. India win by 257 runs 210/10
    53.4 taken at slip! But Jadeja has nearly fluffed that with another no-ball! Oh boy. He breathes a sigh of relief as third umpire deems he has enough of the heel behind the line. Length ball spits up outside off, met with a lazy push on the front foot, and it bobs up off the glove, it looked like. Easily taken by Rahul 177/7
    54.3 great catch by Rishabh Pant! Leaps to his left and holds onto the inside edge. Short of a length ball at off stump, comes back in off the seam. Cornwall jabs at it with gap between bat and body. Big inside edge and he had a long way to go to grab onto that 180/8
    58.5 Pant pockets another! Full, fast, and just outside off stump. Roach can't resist the drive, but the ball takes the edge of his bat. Comfortably taken by the wicketkeeper. India need one more wicket 206/9
