TOTAL64.3 Ov (RR: 2.32)150
Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Tagenarine Chanderpaul, 12.5 ov), 2-38 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 16.3 ov), 3-47 (Raymon Reifer, 19.3 ov), 4-68 (Jermaine Blackwood, 27.6 ov), 5-76 (Joshua Da Silva, 31.5 ov), 6-117 (Jason Holder, 49.4 ov), 7-124 (Alzarri Joseph, 52.4 ov), 8-129 (Alick Athanaze, 54.6 ov), 9-147 (Kemar Roach, 61.3 ov), 10-150 (Jomel Warrican, 64.3 ov) • DRS
49.4 to JO Holder, regulation catch and Siraj's short-ball persistence pays off. Short ball again. Shoulder height for Holder as he attempts the pull. Swivels well, connection is decent too, but decent is not good enough on the leg-side which is fairly big. Shardul at deep square leg does the rest. Siraj with his first. 117/6
12.5 to T Chanderpaul, oh magic ball. Reminds me of Ashwin to Cook at Edgbaston where again Ashwin was introduced first change. Goes really wide on the crease, angles this in, pitches middle and off, has Chanderpaul worried about the angle and then turns it only slightly to beat the outside edge and hit the top of off. This is all the magic of the angle, which has Chanderpaul worried about the lbw should the ball not turn. Beautiful bowling. Also he has now got both the Chanderpauls out in Test cricket. 31/1
16.3 to KC Brathwaite, he's thrown his wicket away - really. Full ball around off. Brathwaite takes a big stride in and looks to club it over midwicket. But it's not full enough and Brathwaite slices the shot. High up and Rohit at cover calls early for this one. 38/2
52.4 to AS Joseph, that's a third for Ashwin. Flat but full around off. Joseph goes for the glory shot, a slog over the leg side but the leading edge takes the ball off-side instead. Unadkat at backward point with a simple one to deal with. Replay confirms that was the carrom ball. Joseph played it expecting the off-break but the ball was turning the other way. Just beautiful. Einstein of offspin. 124/7
54.6 to A Athanaze, out for 47! The dream of a fifty on his debut Test innings will not be. Ashwin realised Athanaze is not quick enough to go onto the back foot. Atleast felt like that in the previous delivery, and on this occasion, Athanaze falls victim. This was shorter from Ashwin, with some decent bounce. Athanaze tried to pull it in front of square, over midwicket, but the ball goes up instead. Shardul with another catch and Ashwin now has four. 129/8
64.3 to JA Warrican, has it carried to short leg?. Again he is hurried into playing this. This slow length ball turns it sharply, Warrican, looking to leave it, now throws his hands at it, gloves it onto the pad, and lobs it up towards short leg. Gill has to dive full length, and three different angles confirm he has his fingers under the ball. Given out. Five-for for Ashwin. No. 33 in Test cricket. 150/10
19.3 to RA Reifer, nice, low catch for Kishan! Golden arm strikes. Full ball on off and a bit of shape in the air away. Drives away from his body, gets the outside edge, and Kishan dives forward to take a low catch. He's confident but the umpires want to go upstairs for confirmation. There were some question marks about Kishan's skills with the gloves and here's the evidence.. 47/3
27.6 to J Blackwood, Siraj has taken a screamer! Full ball outside off. Blackwood looks to launch it straight over Jadeja's head. But Siraj moves swiftly to his right from mid-off, leaps into the air while throwing his body, sticks the arm out, and it STICKS! Has a nasty blow on his elbow, but the ball is in his grasp, and Jadeja also gets a wicket. Siraj is smiling, so he isn't injured, and that's lunch with West Indies losing a fourth.. 68/4
31.5 to J Da Silva, caught on the rebound. Da Silva was itching to cut earlier but restrained. This tine, though, he picks the wrong length to cut again, and because the line is straighter, he has to play the shot. More than the turn, the extra bounce does him in, takes the edge, and Kishan catches the rebound as he fumbles the take the first time. 76/5
61.3 to KAJ Roach, huge shout as Jadeja has hit the pad. Not given. Umpire reckons it has taken an edge. Rohit reviews it. It is going on to hit for sure. Pitches on off, turns a little, only just straightens, and it kisses the pad on the way to the bat. That's plumb once it is confirmed it is pad first. 147/9

TOTAL152.2 Ov (RR: 2.76)421/5d
Fall of wickets: 1-229 (Rohit Sharma, 75.4 ov), 2-240 (Shubman Gill, 78.5 ov), 3-350 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 125.6 ov), 4-356 (Ajinkya Rahane, 129.1 ov), 5-405 (Virat Kohli, 145.2 ov) • DRS
129.1 to AM Rahane, a puff of dust, hard hands, and popped to cover! Full ball just outside off. Rahane tried to meet it near his eyeline, but some extra bounce forced the error, and that's a simple catch. Rahane gone for 3 - this was a big innings for him, but not to be. Roach with some justice, taking his first wicket after being denied by an umpire error when bowling to Jaiswal yesterday.. 356/4
125.6 to YBK Jaiswal, finally a breakthrough for West Indies. A rare loose shot from Jaiswal. Looks to punch at a short-of-a-length delivery, which leaves him with the angle and takes a faint outside edge through to da Silva. 350/3
145.2 to V Kohli, oh it almost seems like Kohli has forgotten a leg slip is there. He has nicely guided it almost off the middle of the bat to the fielder. Cornwall gets turn and bounce, into the hip, Kohli goes back to turn it around the corner, and is caught at leg slip. 405/5
78.5 to Shubman Gill, the extra catch-in fielder has worked! Tossed up around off. Gill got forward to defend but the ball turned away a bit, hit the outside half of the bat, and flew to Athanaze at a short second slip. Out for 6.. 240/2
75.4 to RG Sharma, gone next ball? Appeal for caught but not given. Athanaze got this length ball to hit Rohit's body while he got forward to defend, and Da Silva scurried around Rohit to pouch the ball before it fell near the batter's heel. Umpire doesn't believe there's bat or glove, but the West Indians do. So they review. And yes, looks like bat first, then pad, and Da Silva gets full marks for his awareness. First wicket in 76 overs for West Indies and Rohit is gone for 103. Maiden wicket for debutant Athanaze too!. 229/1

Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Tagenarine Chanderpaul, 9.4 ov), 2-22 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 16.5 ov), 3-32 (Jermaine Blackwood, 20.3 ov), 4-32 (Raymon Reifer, 21.1 ov), 5-58 (Joshua Da Silva, 29.3 ov), 6-78 (Alick Athanaze, 36.2 ov), 7-100 (Alzarri Joseph, 42.3 ov), 8-108 (Rahkeem Cornwall, 46.1 ov), 9-108 (Kemar Roach, 46.4 ov), 10-130 (Jomel Warrican, 50.3 ov) • DRS
29.3 to J Da Silva, that looks plumb. Given. The wobble-seam ball does it for Siraj again. On a length, outside off, pitches and jags back in, da Silva is done in completely and trapped right in front. He doesn't review it. 58/5
16.5 to KC Brathwaite, change in angle has worked almost right away! Fullish ball lands on middle from around the stumps. Brathwaite goes on the back foot to defend, but the ball has straightened after pitching and taken the outside edge to first slip. He wasn't sure whether the ball would turn in or go away with the bowler's angle, and pays the price by keeping his bat dangling somewhere in between.. 22/2
20.3 to J Blackwood, huge shout, given out lbw, and Blackwood has reviewed it. Ashwin slows it down, flights it, pitches it full and outside off. Blackwood goes to defend, but it turns big with a puff of dust and hits him below the knee roll. Ball tracking shows it is hitting the leg stump. Ashwin has two. 32/3
36.2 to A Athanaze, Jaiswal makes up for the earlier drop with a special low catch at short leg. Lovely bowling first of all. Such nice drift into the pads that he has Athanaze playing down the wrong line. It takes the inside edge because it doesn't turn, and goes quickly and low to short leg, but Jaiswal is alert and takes it. 78/6
42.3 to AS Joseph, one slog too many! Gill at deep midwicket takes a simple one. Ashwin around the stumps, gets a full ball around off to turn in sharply. Joseph's slog sweep is sliced, and this doesn't have the legs to clear the boundary.. 100/7
46.1 to RRS Cornwall, an eighth ten-wicket haul for R Ashwin! Standard offbreak, landing outside off, turning in sharply. Cornwall's attempted defense takes the inside edge, hits the knee-flap, and lobs up for Gill at short leg, who jumps up in excitement to gobble it up. He also moves level with Anil Kumble with eight 10-fors. Herath, Hadlee, Warne and Murali ahead of him.. 108/8
46.4 to KAJ Roach, half a dozen! No. 6 for Ashwin. Full ball outside off. Roach tries to defend but the ball whizzes through the gap between his bat and body. Off-stump rattled, and India are one wicket away.. 108/9
50.3 to JA Warrican, reverse sweep... misses, hits the pad... appeal, given! Of course there's a review. Fullish ball landing on middle and straightening. Goes under the bat as he misses the sweep. No glove involved either. Three reds.... Ashwin gets a seventh.... India win by an innings and 141 runs! Ashwin's best overseas figures, finishing with 7 for 71.. 130/10
9.4 to T Chanderpaul, full ball on middle stump. Gets forward to defend, but he's defending from a middle-stump line. Ball turns past the inside edge and hits his pad in front of leg. Polite lbw enquiry... and given out! Chanderpaul with a review. No bat involved. And confirmed: this is clipping the top of leg stump. Umpire's call on stump impact, not enough to overturn the decision.. 8/1
21.1 to RA Reifer, forget the catchers. He has been given out lbw. And he has reviewed it. Again quite similar to the Chanderpaul dismissal but Reifer is caught back unlike Chanderpaul. Jadeja too good for him. Reifer goes back to a length ball, which pitches on off and turns sharply to beat his bat and trap him in front of middle. Ball tracking shows it would have hit leg. A second review lost. 32/4
