Praveen Kumar1672221.37852000
8.1 to KOA Powell, Edged and taken! Debutant is gone. Eric Richards, one of the feedbackers, has put the goat mouth no him. A very good delivery from PK. Looked like an outsiwnger, pitched around off, making him play, and then leaves him, taking the edge through to Laxman at second slip. 17/1
46.1 to MN Samuels, Praveen strikes! Lazy shot from Samuels there, or was there a shot at all? It didn't bounce as much, was short of a good length outside off and he just hung his bat out at that one, no intent whatsoever, got an inside edge and saw his off stump pegged back. 99/5
Ishant Sharma21.347753.58939100
12.6 to AB Barath, Barath won't like seeing the replays for this. He has gone for a pull after having moved across, a touch too far inside the line, now he is pulling this away from his body, and gloves it onto his stumps. This is not a good start for West Indies on a good batting wicket. 24/2
16.5 to KA Edwards, The bouncer gets Edwards, who hasn't been comfortable with them at all. Although this has come off the helmet, and Edwards pointed to the offending equipment too, which might later earn him a fine. Accurate bouncer, head high, over the middle, in no position to hook it, bot goes for it, and the fielders and the umpire go by the sound created by the helmet. 35/3
58.4 to DM Bravo, Sharma gets his man. It's been a battle of attrition against Bravo, but in the end it is a good delivery rather than a wide one outside off that has got the wicket. Sharma goes slightly wider of the crease, this angles in towards Bravo, who is looking to withdraw his bat, but the ball chases him, and kisses the edge. Bravo walks. 158/6
74.6 to FH Edwards, No it hasn't! More timber here. Edwards is a bit rattled, and doesn't want to get behind the line and all that stuff. Looks for the pull, the ball doesn't quite come up, takes the bottom edge onto the stumps. Ishant has four now. Could go for another five-for. 204/9
76.3 to D Bishoo, After one thing it's two thing! Ishant took a long time getting that five-for when he did in Barbados, but he follows it up with another thoroughly deserved one. This is short again, Bishoo doesn't fancy getting in line, fends at this, plays it onto his stumps. First-ever five-for in Dominica. 204/10
Munaf Patel2074812.40996000
37.3 to S Chanderpaul, Munaf keeps nibbling away around off, and he gets the fatal nibble from Shiv. What a big wicket. That same short-of-a-length delivery, around off, bowled from close to the stumps, the ever clear Shiv is indecisive this time, and has a poke at it. Munna's first wicket in Tests since March 2009. Welcome back. 84/4
Harbhajan Singh1572621.73761100
67.1 to DJG Sammy, No. 399 for Harbhajan. Scrambled seam on this one, Sammy looks for a forward defensive, but this is not full enough, bounces a touch extra, takes the inside edge onto the pad, and swallowed at FSL. Harbhajan keeps appealing for a long long time, only for Asad Rauf to point to him that the batsman has walked off. That's the typical Harbhajan appeal, running backwards with his back to the batsman. 199/7
69.4 to CS Baugh, Timber! Harbhajan becomes the 11th man in Test cricket to reach 400 Test wickets. Gets a standing ovation from the balcony, and pats on the back from the whole team. Harbhajan raises his arms to acknowledge it. Baugh plays the cut, but this is pitched just outside off, and turns back in, beats him, and takes the middle stump. let's not forget Baugh has played really well. Falls eight short of his career-best. 200/8

Fidel Edwards28.2310353.6311811012
6.1 to M Vijay, that is the end of Vijay, and that is also the end of a horror tour for him unless there is a fourth innings in this rain-hit match, Edwards probes outside off stump, Vijay decides to have a poke even as it leaves him slightly after pitching on a length, and Baugh is celebrating an instant later after accepting a healthy edge. 13/1
90.1 to SK Raina, and the new ball works right away, Sammy is pumping his fists with glee, Fidel slings it in and gets it to come in late off a length, that would have taken out leg stump as Raina missed the waft and was struck on the pads. 275/6
98.2 to Harbhajan Singh, and Fidel has bounced out Harbhajan again! into the body, getting big on Harbhajan who has no clue what to do with it, tries to play an awkward looking fend-pull belatedly, and the top edge swirls behind square on the leg side and Baugh is under it when it comes down, early strike for Windies that will take care of the remaining tired bones. 308/7
106.1 to MS Dhoni, and now Fidel has got Dhoni with the short ball, there were two men square on the leg side boundary, long leg and deep square leg, Fidel drags it short and in to Dhoni who instinctively goes for the pull, straight in to the hands of deep square leg, tame dismissal really, yet another Indian batsman gives it away. 339/8
108.2 to I Sharma, that's the end of that, Ishant has been consumed by the short ball, he went back to try and deal with the bounce, but it kept climbing and Ishant only managed to fend it right to forward short leg, Fidel has five, superb effort, he acknowledges the applause as he leads his side off the ground. 347/10
Daren Sammy2875121.821301010
9.2 to R Dravid, Dravid is gone, Sammy is overjoyed, done him with the one that did not move away, he was lunging forward and pushing away from the body expecting the ball to move away, but it pitched on a length and kept coming in, huge gap between bat and pad, a bail is broken and the stumps are rattled, so is Dravid, so are India, game on. Dravid was in no position to counter the changed angle at all. 18/2
56.5 to V Kohli, strangled down the leg side, the leg stump line has worked for Sammy, he is delighted, lots of jumping, lots of fist-pumping, Virat is distraught, there was a big deflection, possibly there was a bit of bat and pad both, neat take from Baugh, Virat takes an age to go back as umpire Kettleborough gives him the marching orders, flings down his equipment as he reaches the dressing room. 168/4
Devendra Bishoo38212523.281497106
41.2 to A Mukund, there's the breakthrough which has been a long time coming, Mukund looking to play off the back foot, a short of length ball that sits up, batsman tries to clip it towards midwicket, but edges it on to his thigh pad and the ball pops up nicely for short leg, a much-needed wicket for West Indies. 116/3
107.1 to P Kumar, PK has been done in by Bishoo's flight, the legspinner shows heart by throwing it up teasingly, he knows PK will have a go, PK does, but the turn produces the outside edge and short third man has a simple chance to take. 343/9
Kirk Edwards401904.75131012
Shivnarine Chanderpaul1003813.80342000
59.3 to VVS Laxman, VVS has managed to get stumped after leaving a wide delivery, fancy that for a freakish dismissal, he had just ambled back after leaving the ball and the back foot was in the air for just an instant, just an instant, and that was enough for an alert Baugh to whip off the bails, Laxman looked surprised when West Indies appealed and even more so when the third umpire ruled him out, Chanders is mobbed by his team-mates, he is grinning broadly, 9th wicket in 133 Tests, he'll take it. 172/5

Praveen Kumar2164422.091001000
6.3 to AB Barath, it's all coming apart for the Windies top order, another one goes, short of a length, moving away, could be left alone, but he has got too close to the line by that shuffling movement, standing almost outside off and pushes at it, away from the body, with an open face too, guides it neatly in to fourth slip's hands, Virat has ages to accept the gift as it loops towards him, India celebrate. 10/2
82.3 to CS Baugh, PK has struck with the new ball, soft dismissal for Baugh, he is furious with himself, he came forward, followed the away swing, and reached out to push hard in the air, shortish extra cover accepts the dolly. 223/6
Ishant Sharma2757612.811176011
5.3 to KOA Powell, he cannot survive this time though, Ishant angles it across the left-hander, he just hangs his bat at it from the crease, a result of the previous bouncer, and Raina does the rest at third slip, nice catchable height to him. 8/1
Munaf Patel2457102.951068001
Harbhajan Singh42147541.782035000
18.2 to DM Bravo, Bravo is gone, the man who has shown such fight in his previous two innings, he tries to smash a fullish ball from Harbhajan towards long-off, he can't connect well enough, the ball swirls towards Praveen at wide mid-off, the fielder latches on it, West Indies are now 40 for 3. 40/3
74.3 to KA Edwards, and finally, Bhajji gets his man, and Kirk has to walk back, end of a magnificent debut century, what composure, what guts to fight it out, was prepared to play ugly initially, pats on the back from Bhajji, Munaf and Ishant for Kirk, the opposition bowlers show their appreciation, he went back to a spinning ball but edged the attempted cut to Dhoni. 201/4
74.6 to MN Samuels, Harbhajan gets another, is that missing off, it was a very confident appeal, even flatter and even quicker, speared in on the stumps, Samuels was caught in the crease and on the pads, this time umpire Kettleborough has a long look and agrees with Bhajji, but it did not turn in enough and would have just missed off stump. 201/5
92.2 to DJG Sammy, that's the length, Sammy is gone, the Harbhajan-and-short-leg combination, Sammy is not happy at all, it was tossed up much fuller, drew him forward finally, and Harbhajan got the bounce he gets usually, but did it take some bat or glove on its way to short leg is the question? The bat does not look to be anywhere close to the line of the ball, took the flap of the front pad on its way in to his body and lobbed to the fielder, another West Indies batsman done in by the umpire. 255/7
Suresh Raina15.323222.06650000
129.5 to FH Edwards, the long resistance is finally over, Raina tosses it up full, Fidel for once decides to indulge himself and has a go at it, just gets it to loop in the air to PK at long off, PK bangs the ball in to the ground, Fidel kicks the air in frustration, Shiv is not pleased, Fidel gets an ovation as he walks back and acknowledges the applause. 321/9
131.3 to D Bishoo, that is a superb take at slip by Rahul, Shiv's strategy of letting Bishoo face hasn't worked, it was tossed up and turning away, Bishoo decided to slash it from the crease and the edge fled to Dravid's right, but how smoothly he moved and snapped up the ball nonchalantly. 322/10

Fidel Edwards811912.37360002
0.1 to A Mukund, gone first ball! umpire Rauf raises the finger right away, Abhinav is pegged on the back foot to a length ball that swings back in, he hops very deep in the crease to try to play it away on the leg side, misses and Fidel jumps in the air right away, looked a bit high but replays show it would have just clipped the stumps. 0/1
Ravi Rampaul1123122.81462001
24.1 to M Vijay, Vijay departs, the lull in scoring has done him in, short of a length ball, he looks to shuffle and slam it over mid on from way outside off stump, takes the toe end of the bat and swirls over Bishoo at deepish mid on, and he does not drop many. 73/2
28.1 to SK Raina, Raina is gone, he shuffled well across to whip a back of a length ball towards midwicket, but ended up scooping it back towards the bowler, it was dying on Rampaul but the man tumbled well forward in his followthrough to take a low catch, grabbing at it with both hands. 86/3
