3.4 to CH Gayle, the break proves Gayle undoing! It was a hit-me ball, short and wide, Gayle went for his trademark cut but got a thick edge, probably due to a bit of extra bounce, straight to Dhoni, India strike.. 27/1
25.1 to DM Bravo, timber! In the blockhole on middle, Darren makes room to swing that past midwicket but misses and the stumps take a beating!. 170/5
25.6 to DJ Bravo, excellent catch by Dhoni, full and wide, goes hard at the drive, gets a thick edge and the Indian captain flings himself to his right to pluck that one-handed and see the back of Bravo. 173/6
RP Singh503406.80134000
Harbhajan Singh503527.0082100
12.3 to RS Morton, stumped, brilliantly done, beaten through the air again, saw him coming down and fired it short outside off, Morton made no contact and Dhoni did the rest, finding him miles short. 78/2
26.6 to JE Taylor, well struck but straight down long-on's throat, short on the off, pulled away flat to Ishant who takes a sharp one. 186/7
Yuvraj Singh201909.5062101
Rohit Sharma10707.0021000
Yusuf Pathan402817.0072010
18.3 to S Chanderpaul, for a moment it seemed it would clear the ropes, swept it well to reach backward square leg but didn't time it as well as he would have liked, Nehra stood patiently, judged it well and ensured he didn't lose his balance once he had cupped it just inside the boundary, important breakthrough. 125/3

Ravi Rampaul402606.50111001
Dwayne Bravo402716.7571100
20.5 to RG Sharma, he's skied that, length ball on middle, was the slower one again, tried to clear deep midwicket but mistimed it, Bernard ran in from deep midwicket and took it with little difficulty, are India throwing it away here?. 148/4
David Bernard302117.0040020
16.6 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj has holed out! This is a massive blow. Full on middle and Yuvraj's eyes lit up, tried to clear long-on but didn't get the desired distance, Darren Bravo held his nerve in the deep to latch onto a pressure catch, West Indies are pulling it back. 117/3
Sulieman Benn503116.2092000
15.1 to G Gambhir, he's edged it! Slightly short on the off, spin in a touch, tried to turn it into the leg side, got a faint inside edge straight into Ramdin's gloves, crucial wicket. 108/2
