Jerome Taylor1017417.40284432
4.3 to G Gambhir, Ooh la la! the bouncer has done the trick. Again. That sinking Twenty20 feeling again. Well-directed pacy bouncer on the middle stump, from round the stumps, Gambhir took his eyes off the ball, yanked his head away from the line but tried to go through with the pull shot. Mistake. The ball took the top edge and lobbed to square leg.. 25/1
Lionel Baker906216.88296311
7.2 to RG Sharma, Would you believe it? Another man goes down to the short-pitched delivery. Rohit goes for an unconvincing pull and top edges it to deep square-leg region. Taylor hadn't bowled a bouncer at Rohit and had kept him waiting. And Lionel Baker threw in the knockout punch with a short delivery outside off stump and Rohit tried to fetch it from there.. 32/2
Dwayne Bravo1006626.60243330
38.1 to Yuvraj Singh, And Yuvraj is gone now. Storm abates. It was full and down the leg side, poor delivery actually, Yuvraj edges the flick behind the wicket and Ramdin dives to his right to take a very fine catch. What a knock though from Yuvraj. Powerpacked and entertaining. It was a pleasure to watch.. 253/4
38.2 to RA Jadeja, Two in two. It was full and angling away from Jadeja who has a lame poke at it. Fatal.. 253/5
David Bernard805016.25214130
28.4 to KD Karthik, The paddle-scoop has done him in this time. He fetched it from outside off but only scooped it straight up for Ramdin to hold a simple catch. Bernard had taken pace off that ball. 167/3

RP Singh704416.28225131
47.4 to SJ Benn, Clatter! Full in length, moves in, Benn goes for the leg side, has a big swing but missed it completely. Baker walks in. 22 from 14.. 318/9
Ashish Nehra7.114936.83154121
9.3 to CH Gayle, Nehra gets the big wicket of Chris Gayle in his comeback game. It was short in length and Gayle went for the pull but mistimed it wide of mid-on where Harbhajan ran to his left to take a neat catch.. 65/1
44.5 to DE Bernard, Bernard walks down the track and swings it powerfully to deep midwicket boundary and Rohit, who was a few metres inside the boundary, had to retreat and he lunged back to hold on to a good catch.. 294/8
48.1 to D Ramdin, And India win the game by 20 runs. Ramdin went for the big hit over mid-off but couldn't clear the cordon. Harbhajan Singh takes the catch at mid-off and hugs Yuvraj. Fine effort from West Indies to come close but no cigar. India might wonder how it go so close in the end despite the absence of any top-order batsmen or any power hitters. The wides and the numerous deliveries on and outside the leg stump would have made Dhoni lose some more hair.Hang on for post-match ceremony.. 319/10
Ishant Sharma503817.60115010
31.5 to DJ Bravo, high full toss, Bravo edges the attempted pull to cover where Rohit Sharma catches the ball and throws at the non-striker's end. It was above waist-high and Bravo was expecting it to be called a no-ball. Perhaps, that's what Rohit also thought as he went for the run out. But the umpires have ruled Bravo out. No no-ball signal came and Bravo walked off unhappily. His young brother walks in.. 188/4
Ravindra Jadeja713404.85191100
Yusuf Pathan805637.00172240
15.5 to RS Morton, slightly short on middle and spinning down leg, Morton tries to tickle that fine but it goes straight to the keeper Dhoni who appeals for caught-behind and wins the umpire's approval, Morton wasn't happy there, we'll need replays to confirm what happened. It seems to have gone off the thigh pad. 100/2
35.4 to S Chanderpaul, But he has holed out to deep midwicket now. Chanderpaul moved down the track, Yusuf bowled on his legs and its flicked straight to the fielder.. 224/5
39.3 to JE Taylor, skidded on from short of length towards the middle stump, Taylor went for the big pull, missed and was caught in front.. 250/7
Harbhajan Singh1005615.60294130
38.3 to DM Bravo, Darren looked to step out but the bowler shortened the length and he top edged the pull to RP at deep midwicket. 99 from 69 balls. Just four wickets in hand.. 241/6
