Jadeja to Roach, OUT, Jadeja finishes it off. India claim the bonus point. This is full and straight, Roach plays across the line, is hit on the pad, and then on the stumps

KAJ Roach b Jadeja 34 (49m 33b 3x4 2x6) SR: 103.03

Jadeja to Narine, OUT, finally India get a wicket. Finally Narine falls. He makes room, tries to go over cover, but he doesn't have that much space to swing, and finds long-off

SP Narine c I Sharma b Jadeja 21 (36m 33b 0x4 2x6) SR: 63.63

Yadav to Sammy, OUT, slower offcutter, and Yadav has three wickets in three overs. Sammy is not too pleased. He thinks this is cutting too much, but umpire Llong says it is hitting the stumps. And he is right again. Sammy completely done in by the change of pace, and the movement off the track

DJG Sammy lbw b Yadav 12 (17m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 92.30

Yadav to DJ Bravo, OUT, stays low, skids through, jags back in from outside off, beats the inside edge, and is given out lbw. I think it is headed down leg, but I am waiting for a replay. And I am wrong. bravo had moved too far across, and was dead plumb

DJ Bravo lbw b Yadav 14 (43m 29b 0x4 1x6) SR: 48.27

Yadav to Ramdin, OUT, and Yadav strikes first ball. A straight full ball, angling in, Ramdin is slightly early into this on-side shot, and the leading edge carries to the left of mid-off, who has enough time to come under it

D Ramdin c Kumar b Yadav 9 (27m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.94

I Sharma to Charles, OUT, another short ball gets India a wicket. This is surreal. Indian fans won't mind this at all, though. Short again, rising towards the chest again, handcuffs him on the pull, and square leg runs to his right to judge the catch well

J Charles c Raina b I Sharma 45 (66m 39b 6x4 2x6) SR: 115.38

Kumar to Pollard, OUT, one more bites the dust. Golden duck for Pollard. Pace and bounce here. Short of a lenght, rising towards the chest, Pollard arches back and jabs at it. Ashwin takes another catch at slip. Have India found a slip catcher? And more importantly, a place for Ashwin?

KA Pollard c Ashwin b Kumar 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

I Sharma to Samuels, OUT, and it doesn't matter what happened last ball. Sharma has his man. Short of a length again, seams a touch again, and this time Samuels has clearly edged it. Sharma is pumped

MN Samuels c †Karthik b I Sharma 6 (34m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Kumar to DM Bravo, OUT, look at where Bravo is looking, and look where the ball is. He plonks the front foot down and wants to drive this wide of mid-off, but is nowhere near this length ball, and edges it to Ashwin for a comfortable catch at first slip. All through, Bravo is looking towards extra cover

DM Bravo c Ashwin b Kumar 1 (11m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Kumar to Gayle, OUT, And Bhuvneshwar provides a breakthrough in his first spell again. There is a drizzle in the air, but it doesn't affect BK's seam. The ball lands on the seam, short of a length, just outside off, and it breaks away and kicks a little. Gayle cannot control it, and edges it through. Outside the playing field, Dhoni applauds too

CH Gayle c †Karthik b Kumar 10 (11m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.92
