Gayle and bouncers leave India facing exit

Chris Gayle finished agonisingly short of becoming the first man to make two international Twenty20 centuries, but by the time he was run-out he had already swiped West Indies to a total that provided too tall for India's batsmen who yet again floundered

So it's all but over for India. If Sri Lanka win the next match, India will be out even before they go into their last game. If Australia win, India will stay alive, but will have to beat Sri Lanka on Tuesday and then hope that Australia beat West Indies, and also hope that their run-rate is ahead of WI's. And West Indies, by the way, will be playing the second game. So it's all stacked up against them. West Indies, though, have given themselves a great chance if they beat Australia on Tuesday. Thanks for joining us, do hop over to the other tab for the second match for today. Okay bye. And oh by the way, exciting news for cricket fans in the USA - the first ever Twenty20 internationals on American soil will take place in Florida on May 20, 22 and 23rd when Sri Lanka will play New Zealand in three Twenty20 matches.

Presentation

Chris Gayle, MoM and winning captain "Good win, just what we needed. I was under pressure, not just cricket-wise but also given so much support. So it was important to play well myself."

MS Dhoni "Batting hasn't been up to the expectation. Bowlers have done decently, give or take a few overs here and there. Batting is supposed to be our strength, and we should chase 170 in these conditions. We are hoping to give our best in the next game."

High fives all around for West Indies. Disappointment for India, embarrassment too, I might add, because they know they are going to be bounced out, yet they can't do anything about it. They have been, er, bounced out. West Indies acknowledge the crowd as they walk off

Jadeja on strike. Three sixes required off three balls. Sadist people will say that's half what he conceded two days ago. Poor young man

W
Roach to Harbhajan, OUT

Roach will be a relived man! He offers him a low full toss after four consecutive wides, and this deserves to go for six, but Bhajji has mis-hit straight to long-on

Roach to Harbhajan, 1 wide

harsh harsh call! Wide yorker outside off, and I thought it went inside the wide line, but Taufel stretches his arms

22 off 8 now. Will lack of discipline cost West Indies?

18.1
W
Roach to Harbhajan, 1 run, OUT

Direct hit, game over! Bravo has not bowled or batted really well, but he makes it up with the fielding. Bhajji has hit this to long-on, straight enough of Bravo, to his left, but he comes around, picks it up with one hand and hits the stumps on the yorker length

MS Dhoni run out (Bravo) 29 (30m 18b 2x4 2x6) SR: 161.11

32 off 12 now. Not too far out of their reach. But West Indies still ahead. Roach to bowl his last over. Who will bowl No. 20?
