Ian Bradshaw824025.00315100
0.6 to R Dravid, and Bradshaw strikes! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, this one shaped back in after hitting the deck, Dravid is sucked forward into the drive, ball swings in just enough to beat the inside edge and Dravid is trapped plumb in front, dead as a stone!. 1/1
10.2 to SK Raina, good-length ball on the stumps, Raina goes to work the ball to the on side but that's a dangerous ploy. He misses and Bradshaw is right on the money! Raina has to take a walk as the stumps are shattered! West Indies have their second wicket and it's a big one as Raina had been batting handsomely.. 62/2
Fidel Edwards904905.44292041
Jerome Taylor403007.5095000
Marlon Samuels1004114.10271030
40.4 to IK Pathan, slightly short, the ball grips the surface and stops on the batsman, Pathan plays a half-hearted shot and pops the simplest of catches back to Marlon Samuels! West Indies have done superbly to peg India back!. 218/6
Dwayne Bravo804525.62203100
28.4 to V Sehwag, And Bravo strikes back for the home team and that is the wicket West Indies wanted! A full delivery, swings in late, probably reverse swing, Sehwag comes forward to drive but is struck full on the boot, loud shout for the lbw rightly upheld by umpire Asad Rauf, India three down.. 174/3
49.3 to AB Agarkar, GONE! Yet another slower ball from Bravo and Agarkar's attempted big hit only goes up in the air and to Brian Lara at long-on! That's the ninth wicket down!. 242/9
Chris Gayle1003503.50320100
Ramnaresh Sarwan10111.0050000
43.3 to RR Powar, fullish and on the pads, Powar sweeps and misses and is bowled round his legs! That is an inspired bowling change from Brian Lara!. 222/7

Irfan Pathan905015.55297040
48.2 to S Chanderpaul, Pathan goes for the yorker, it's a touch too full, Chanderpaul looks to flick, misses and is hit on the pad, loud shout and it's upheld! Chanderpaul is gone for 58 but it might just be a case of too little too late from India. Just 9 runs needed for victory now.. 237/5
Ajit Agarkar1013223.20402101
9.3 to RS Morton, another one! good length delivery, swinging in late and Morton is hit on the pad right in line with the stumps, loud appeal and umpire Bucknor brings up the slow finger of death - West Indies two down and in a spot of bother here. 31/2
24.3 to CH Gayle, got'm! that's the wicket they wanted! short of a good length delivery, pitched on middle and off and shaping away a touch, Gayle had no option but to play at it and the resultant edge goes straight to Dhoni behind the stumps - Agarkar with the all important breakthrough, West Indies three down.. 116/3
8.6 to MN Samuels, first-blood! good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and coming in with the angle, bit of a skidder - Samuels rocks back in an effort to whip it away through midwicket but fails to make contact and the ball hits him high on the pad, loud appeal and the dreaded finger goes up. 30/1
Harbhajan Singh1013313.30382010
27.3 to BC Lara, beauty! tossed up on the middle and leg stump line, turning right across, Lara pushes forward - looking to work it away towards midwicket, ball turns across just enough to kiss the outside edge and goes straight to Dravid at first slip who takes it on the second attempt, big wicket and this match is back in the balance. 131/4
