TOTAL49.1 Ov (RR: 5.45, 222 Mins)268
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Sachin Tendulkar, 0.6 ov), 2-51 (Gautam Gambhir, 8.3 ov), 3-173 (Virat Kohli, 32.2 ov), 4-218 (MS Dhoni, 41.4 ov), 5-232 (Suresh Raina, 43.5 ov), 6-240 (Yuvraj Singh, 44.6 ov), 7-251 (Yusuf Pathan, 46.4 ov), 8-259 (Harbhajan Singh, 47.5 ov), 9-267 (Zaheer Khan, 48.5 ov), 10-268 (Munaf Patel, 49.1 ov)
0.6 to SR Tendulkar, Done in by the shortish ball that straightened just outside off. Ravi Rampaul has gone berserk. Windies said they had a plan. It wasn't a bouncer, just leaped from short of length above waist and straightened outside off, Tendulkar stabbed at it by taking the bottom hand off the handle but the ball popped up to the keeper. umpire ruled not out, tendulkar walked, though.. 8/1
8.3 to G Gambhir, Caught at third man! Gambhir goes for the dash and slap. He rushed down the track, got outside the leg and went for the cut. The ball bounced more than he thought and flew of the edge and landed into the palms of third man.. 51/2
32.2 to V Kohli, Rampaul does it again. Will this 'reverse' the momentum? Top bowling from Rampaul, gets it to nip in sharply from a length outside off. Kohli plonks the front foot across plays a swat-swipe across the line, rivalled in ugliness only by the shot Michael Clarke played yesterday. The ball sneaks past and upsets the furniture. It is one of Kohli's main scoring shots, but at times he doesn't pull it off that well.. 173/3
46.4 to YK Pathan, Clatter! Ravi Rampaul screams, "Wow!" A yorker that reverses in to the middle and off line. Yusuf goes for the big swing. And misses. Clatter!. 251/7
48.5 to Z Khan, Five-for for Rampaul! His best ODI returns. Ever. Fab show. He is all smiles. It was the yorker again, Zaheer had shuffled to the off and looked to swing it to the on side. timber!. 267/9
47.5 to Harbhajan Singh, Pollard has taken a beauty but has dislocated his fingerOr so it appears. Oh ouch... what pain that must be.. He rushed forward from long-on and dived to take a very very fine catch. He immediately got up, looked to the dressing room and waved for the physio. That little finger looked really crooked. He has done it in. Oh dear. He now walks off the field. 259/8
49.1 to MM Patel, India don't play 50 overs. Again. He backed away, tried to open the bat-face and steer it to third man - that's the only shot he plays - and got an inside edge.. 268/10
43.5 to SK Raina, It could have been a wide- full and down the leg side- but raina, who had shuffled outside leg, reached out further down leg as he went down on his knee and swept it to right of short fine-leg where Ravi Rampaul pouched a sharp catch.. 232/5
41.4 to MS Dhoni, Lovely leg break from Bishoo! Supah delivery. It was flighted on a length on the middle and leg, Dhoni went down the track but was beaten in the flight and went on to complete that big lofted hit. No luck. The ball dipped, turned and bounced over the stumps. Thomas collected it and quietly removed the bails. The stumper is stumped.. 218/4
44.6 to Yuvraj Singh, Pollard is ecstatic. What celebrations. Yuvraj had tried to hit this on the up but hit it softly back to Pollard who rushes to midwicket region, stops, and screams in joy! Fine knock from Yuvraj who got a ton after 35 innings.. 240/6

TOTAL43 Ov (RR: 4.37, 181 Mins)188
Fall of wickets: 1-34 (Kirk Edwards, 6.2 ov), 2-91 (Darren Bravo, 16.6 ov), 3-154 (Devon Smith, 30.3 ov), 4-157 (Kieron Pollard, 31.5 ov), 5-160 (Devon Thomas, 34.2 ov), 6-162 (Daren Sammy, 35.3 ov), 7-165 (Andre Russell, 36.6 ov), 8-179 (Sulieman Benn, 39.6 ov), 9-182 (Ramnaresh Sarwan, 41.1 ov), 10-188 (Ravi Rampaul, 42.6 ov)
6.2 to KA Edwards, India have referred an lbw appeal turned down by umpire Davis. Seemed close in real time. It is the carrom ball, does it land on leg? Yes it does. Lands on a length and goes the other way. It is headed to middle and leg. All over for the debutant. Well bowled Ashwin, this is the first time umpire Davis has been over-ruled on referral. I daresay, Ashwin's carom ball - inspired by Ajantha Mendis - is actually better than the Mendis version.. 34/1
42.6 to R Rampaul, India have finally beaten one of the top teams in the World Cup. West Indies go into the quarters without a single win. Straight armer from Ashwin, slips past the ugliest of leg-side heaves and crashes into the furniture. Great World Cup debut for Ashwin, one of the things that went right for India today. In the end, they have managed to pull off a rather convincing win.. 188/10
30.3 to DS Smith, Zak gets a wicket in his first over of this spell. It was yet another slower one, the knuckled-it over as Zak does these days. It was full in length, landed just outside off and moved in to hit the off. Smith was looking to drive but missed.. 154/3
39.6 to SJ Benn, A sight for the ages. Munaf has taken a tumbling catch. He did not have to tumble, but that's alright I guess. Slower ball from Zaheer, comes much after Benn got into his on-side chip. He ended up looping it gently to the left of mid-on. Munaf moves across, goes down on his knees as he completes the catch. West Indies have put the 'plod' in 'implode' here.. 179/8
41.1 to RR Sarwan, Sarwan came in to an even game, has seen the pressure mount around him, and has now exited in a whimper. Back of a length from Zaheer, angling the slower ball across at 119 kph, Sarwan tries to stay back on the crease and manufacture a carved boundary over the off side. Ashwin, was however, placed on the cover boundary and easily ran across to pouch the uppish slap.. 182/9
31.5 to KA Pollard, holes out to long-on. Bhaji takes Pollard out. Crowd clear their throats. It was a flighted delivery and Pollard went down for the big hit. But he didn't go for that big swing he does, rather just chipped it over, that pick-up shot as they say, and finds long-on. 157/4
16.6 to DM Bravo, suicide from Bravo. Oh boy, what have you done. Lara wouldn't approve of that at all. Short ball from Raina, Bravo could have played it anywhere he wanted to, he probably was spoilt for choice. He ended up pulling it from off stump in the air. To long on. Harbhajan takes the catch. Raina's golden arm has turned many an IPL and Champions League game. Can he do it at the World Cup?. 91/2
34.2 to DC Thomas, Dhoni returns the favour. He was stumped and now he has stumped Thomas. It was a lovely delivery btw. It drifted in from round the stumps, dipped on the batsman and turned away. Thomas was lured forward - he wasn't looking for a big hit but was fatally attracted by that flight and he stretched the back foot outside the crease. Mistake. Dip, grip and turn. Dhoni does the rest.. 160/5
36.6 to AD Russell, they are losing the plot here are West Indies, and the crowd is getting behind India. As tame as they come. Yuvraj gets one to grip, turn and bounce as Russell goes for a cut and edges it uppishly to Yusuf at point. West Indies are muffing this despite India's consistent ineptitude through the day.. 165/7
