Pedro Collins1973411.78985010
0.3 to V Sehwag, Pedro Collins strikes, what a start for West Indies, on the pads, Sehwag turns it around, Sarwan at short leg takes a good reflex catch.. 1/1
Jerome Taylor18.445052.67885001
3.5 to W Jaffer, Bowled him! Taylor strikes, good length delivery outside the off stump, coming in with the angle, Jaffer too late for the defensive shot, misses the bat, knocks the off stump. Beaten by pace, India two down.. 3/2
41.1 to Yuvraj Singh, Taylor strikes, excellent delivery first up, it was full and on target, Yuvraj not in any position to play any shot, gets hit on the toes, loud appeal, given by the Umpire. Yuvraj looks to be hurt. He is being escorted by the 12th man.. 58/4
47.5 to M Kaif, short delivery outside the off stump, Kaif defends awkwardly on the back foot, ball takes the glove through to Lara at second slip, who takes the catch. India are five down for 78.. 78/5
85.4 to S Sreesanth, nine down - Harbhajan didnt want that last single, and see whats happened...didnt read the lenth at all, took his eyes off the ball and Sreesanth pays the price - he ducks into a rising delivery, ball hits his shoulder and crashes onto the stumps, he's gone for 0. 200/9
87.4 to MM Patel, that's it, all over, hurrah for Taylor - his maiden five-wicket haul in Tests - a perfectl directed ball short of a good length, it rises a tad and has Munaf swaying away and gloving it to Ramdin, who gleefully pouches it, wow, wow, good bowling, India undone for just 200 on the first day, Taylor leads his side off the field with a BIG grin on his face.... 200/10
Dwayne Bravo2436822.831148011
29.6 to VVS Laxman, Bravo strikes! good length delivery, Laxman on the front foot drives, closes the face off the bat too early, the ball takes the edge through to the substitute Morton at gully, who takes the catch.. 34/3
79.4 to A Kumble, Bravo gets his man - for another time in this series, Kumble stands up and plays the short ball defensively with a horizontal bat and plays on - the ball gets a shave off the edge of the bat and hits the base of offstump - Kumble goes for a fine 47, and West Indies have hit back again, right when matters were slipping out of hand, India are eight down now. 184/7
Corey Collymore19111720.891062010
50.2 to MS Dhoni, GONE! Short ball on off, Dhoni goes for his favorite cut shot but can only hit it to Dwayne Bravo in the slips, what a good catch, made it look so simple, another Indian falls prey to this disciplined bowling attack, they're in tatters here at Sabina Park, what a batting display, check one more for the Windies. 91/6
84.1 to R Dravid, what a biggie - ooh boy - Collymore does the job, gets The Wall - great seam position from one on off, Dravid just tamely pokes at that and Ramdin takes the faint edge, what an unfortunate end to a fine innings, so late in the day, Collymore strikes for West Indies, he's rewarded for an outstanding bowling performance today. 197/8

Sreesanth933423.77414000
0.4 to CH Gayle, Sreesanth Strikes! similar start to Indian Innings, an error of judgement from Gayle, good length delivery pitches just outside the off stump and cuts in slightly, Gayle plays down the wrong line, the ball knocks the off stump out of the ground. A perfect start for the Indians.. 0/1
10.6 to BC Lara, Sreesanth picks up the big wicket of Lara! extra bounce, that kicked off the pitch, Lara plays it awkwardly, gets the edge and goes to Jaffer at third slip, who takes the catch above his head. It was an unplayable delivery.. 42/2
Munaf Patel1252412.00634010
22.6 to S Chanderpaul, what have I been saying? in the slot, pitched up on off, slightly wider this time, forces Chanderpaul to play at that one, with zero footwork, however, and all he can do is get a regulation edge through to Dhoni who takes it to his left - key strike from Munaf, West Indies in all sorts of trouble now. 72/4
Anil Kumble833214.00386001
17.1 to MN Samuels, Got 'em! Great ball, tossed up on off, lots of turn, beats him in the air, Samuels forward in his huge stride, ball goes past him and Dhoni pulls off a neat stumping, Samuels was out of his crease, leg umpire Jerling calls for the third umpire and the red light flashes almost immediately, key wicket for India. 53/3
Harbhajan Singh4.301352.88202000
25.2 to D Ganga, uff, what a start from Bhajji! Tossed up, a true offbreak, pitched outside off and comes in sharply, Ganga leaves it alone and is rapped on the back leg, a huge appeal from all is upheld by Koertzen, what a blow for West Indies on the stroke of lunch, the Turbanator strikes, Ganga completely undon looking to play it to the onside with half a bat, he's on his way for 40. 80/5
25.6 to DJ Bravo, good ball tossed up a touch short, turn and bounce, Bravo on the back foot looks to play to the on side, gets the inside edge onto the pad and then lobs up to Yuvraj at short leg, who takes a good catch.. 81/6
27.2 to RR Sarwan, West Indies lose their seventh wicket, Harbhajan picks up his third wicket, tossed up outside the off stump, Sarwan moves forward and looking to hit it over the midwicket, gets a leading edge, the ball goes up high in the air, Kaif at midwicket waits for a long time for the ball to come down, then takes the catch.. 88/7
31.3 to D Ramdin, Harbhjan strikes! picks up his 4th wicket, good ball tossed up, spins in, Ramdin on the back foot, should have been forward, gets the glove onto the pads and then lobs up on the on side, straight into the hands of Yuvraj at short leg.. 99/8
33.3 to PT Collins, Harbhajan picks up his fifth wicket, tossed up outside the off stump, Collins goes after it, hits it high in the air towards long on, Sehwag takes the catch.. 103/10

Jerome Taylor1544543.00737100
1.4 to W Jaffer, yowza! What a blinder! Good length delivery on off, seams away, gets Jaffer to stand tall and flash the bat at it, gets the edge and it flies hard and fast towards gully, out of the blue comes the hand of Morton at third slip, a great one-handed catch going to his right, Jaffer goes and Taylor checks one more to his name in this Test...dreadful start for India again, well bowled Taylor. 1/1
3.2 to V Sehwag, he's gone! India two down! Sabina Park is aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive! Delivered from wide of the stumps, full and quick, jags in from off and traps Sehwag right in front of the stumps, that ball kept low and Sehwag is clueless, everyone up in appeal and the umpire raises the dreaded finger, West Indies on a roll, Taylor on fire, India have plenty to ponder, their second-innings record seems to be catching up...what a start, make that 22 wickets in a day-and-a-half, folks...dont move from your seats. 6/2
43.5 to MS Dhoni, what a comeback, bowled him neck and crop, nothing in that shot this time, rolls his fingers over that one, gets it to nip back sharply from offstump, keeps a little low but there's zero footwork from Dhoni and the ball crashes into middle stump, furniture rattled and Dhoni's gone for 19 just when this stand was looking good for India, big wicket. 122/6
64.5 to S Sreesanth, gone - great change of length from Taylor, Sreesanth gives him the charge and the bowler saw it, adjusted his line and length, dropped it short, he takes his eyes off the ball as it lobs off his gloves to Lara at second slip, another one down, just one more to go for West Indies, Taylor checks off another in the wickets column. 171/9
Corey Collymore24.194851.981237000

65.1 to Harbhajan Singh, thats that then! A good delivery on off, holds its line, Harbhajan, with zero footwork, pokes at it and Lara at second slip holds onto a fine low chance, picks it up inches of the ground going to his left, Collymore makes it five for himself, India all out for 171, West Indies have come back firing on the third day, they need 269 to win this match, dont move from your seats, we'll be back very soon for their reply. 171/10

Sreesanth1523832.53725000
0.2 to CH Gayle, awesome, brilliant, what a start! A pair for Gayle at home - great delivery on off, held its line again, shaped away, zero footwork from Gayle, he just poked at it uselessly, Laxman at second slip holds onto it, great way to begin the innings, eh? Dreadful start by the home side... 0/1
10.4 to D Ganga, Bowled him! a good swinging fuller delivery, Ganga plays down the wong line, beats the bat, the ball knocks the base of the stumps.. 27/2
42.6 to RR Sarwan, Sreesanth picks up Sarwan! excellent delivery outside the off stump, draws him forward, who pushes at the ball, slight deviation of the delivery takes the edge to Dravid at first slip, who takes the catch low to his left, that was a good catch from Dravid. 126/5
Munaf Patel1222612.16582000
11.3 to BC Lara, Patel strikes gets the crucial wicket of Lara! excellent delivery pitched on the leg stump and going on, Lara caught on the back foot, strikes the pad in line with the stumps, loud appeal, given by Umpire Jerling, that was absolutely Plumb in front. 29/3
Harbhajan Singh1636504.066610000
Anil Kumble22.437863.4410611103
26.3 to S Chanderpaul, gone, Kumble you beauty! Flighted on middle and off, Chanderpaul goes for an airy flick of all shots, not much turn, strikes him on the full, they all appeal, there's lbw shouts, the ball flies to Dravid at slip, there's one for the catch, then he throws the ball onto the stumps to run him out, its all happening, Rudi Koertzen raises the finger slowly, in the end its given lbw, its really all happening here, three appeals for one ball to one batsman, but the lbw is confirmed, whatever it is, Kumble's struck and West Indies slip further!. 56/4
43.6 to DJ Bravo, Kumble strikes! the wicket of Bravo, got him! it was a straight delivery, Bravo goes for the big swipe, misses it completely, knocks the off stump.. 128/6
51.5 to MN Samuels, and he's got him with a faster one, that was pitched in a good spot, around leg, he goes back to fend it, ball goes off the pads to short leg, they all appeal for both lbw and a catch, and umpire Jerling raises his finger in a hurry! Its actually been adjugded lbw, a debatable decision that, looked like it was missing legs, but another wicket for the veteran spinner. 144/7
59.5 to JE Taylor, but isnt revenge so, so sweet? This is a master bowler we're talking about, he gave him a slower one to cut, and this time he sends in a quicker one, here deal with that, says Kumble, forces Taylor on the backfoot, caught plumb in front of the stumps, all go up in appeal, they know theyve got their man, and yes, says umpire Jerling. Taylor's enterprising innings come to an end, India on the verge of victory at Sabina Park.... 180/8
69.2 to PT Collins, got em, nine down! Kumble strikes, tossed up, a straight one, pitched in line, goes for a sweep of some sorts, struck in front, a big appeal and the man in the hat and shades say yep, thats out, India can breathe a big sigh of relief, fifth wicket for Kumble, who says he cant win matches for India outside the subcontinent??. 219/9
69.4 to CD Collymore, all over! All done! Finito! Kumble, Kumble! How this game has changed! A quicker one on off, width offered, he goes for cut and the thin edge is snapped up by an ecstatic Dhoni! No one waits for the decision they all know its out! West Indies bowled out for 219, India win by 49 runs, what a win! 35 years it took, but boy, isnt it worth it?. 219/10
