Shannon Gabriel2156523.09976104
6.2 to M Vijay, taken by second slip, after a little moment of panic! K Brathwaite moves in front of first slip to claw at the ball, doesn't get it on the first try, nor the second try, but does so on the third. Gabriel is thrilled. He's been putting in so much effort to get the ball to soar above the batsman's neck. And this is very accurate too, on middle and off. Vijay was setting up for a backfoot block but it just climbs on him sharply. 14/1
119.2 to V Kohli, 140 kph, dragged on! Hits the bottom of the bat, the inside edge, and veers onto off stump. India have spoken about not losing wickets either side of a break, Kohli himself has been vehement about that. This though - a back of a length ball outside off - seemed to have stayed a smidge low which foiled Kohli's attempt to punch the ball through the covers. Gabriel barely celebrates. Kohli walks off with the respect of the Antigua public, some bowing before him.. 404/5

27.4 to CA Pujara, perhaps that's why people were calling for him. Coming back into Test cricket, and picks off Pujara with a short ball. Sometimes this game is easy, isn't it? The batsman saw a rank delivery and wanted to smash it, but in his eagerness, he played too early. Leading edge, near the bottom of the bat, lobs over to point's waiting hands.. 74/2
54.5 to S Dhawan, he has to go, but he really doesn't want to. Pitched in line, hits in line and that looks fairly plumb. Dhawan goes for the sweep, but he is unable to make any contact. Played over the ball, I believe and is struck quite low on the front pad. Straightforward decision for Dar, and that brings us to tea. 179/3
67.2 to AM Rahane, he seems to have that knack, as most legspinners do. Filthy old short ball, but it sat on the pitch while Rahane was set up for the pull shot. He tried to delay his shot to adjust according to the ball coming onto him a lot slower than he liked. But he's just caught in no-man's land. Top edge, the ball lobs up and midwicket takes the simplest catch. 236/4
Kraigg Brathwaite14.516534.38484200
143.6 to WP Saha, stumped, it would seem. Saha ran down the track, is beaten in the flight, the ball sneaks through bat and pad, and Dowrich whips the bails off. The square leg umpire asks for a second opinion and it comes down in red. Drift, dip and turn, for a part-time offspinner. India won't mind that, really. 475/6
157.3 to R Ashwin, long-off takes it, with a little discomfort, but Gabriel is solid enough. Seems like he had run in too far, then takes the ball reverse-cup, against his chest and falls away. Ashwin had run down the track to lift the ball over the infield, didn't make strong enough connection. 526/7
161.5 to A Mishra, short ball, hacked straight to midwicket and India have declared. 566/8

Ishant Sharma2074402.20971003
Umesh Yadav1884142.27883000
65.4 to RL Chase, loses patience! Sees a short ball, goes for the pull instinctively, doesn't keep it down, doesn't make good connection and that leg-side dominant field comes in handy. Straight to short midwicket.. 139/6
67.3 to KC Brathwaite, that's a ripper! Drew Brathwaite into playing because of the ball coming in at him with the angle. it gets big. Too big. Brathwaite tries to fend it away but then it holds its line and seals his fate. Outside edge Glove carries through to the keeper. Batsmen hopping around, batsmen getting dismissed. 144/7
85.2 to JO Holder, sixth dismissal for Saha and the outswinger works for Umesh. It's a wide one, the sucker ball, the kind that sits up for the cover drive in limited-overs cricket. Only here, it fetches a thick edge. Everything going to plan for India. Saha has equalled Dhoni and Syed Kirmani for the most catches by an Indian wicketkeeper in an innings. 213/8
85.3 to CR Brathwaite, that's a bit bizarre. Big, powerful Carlos Brathwaite watches a full delivery angled in towards off stump all the way onto off stump. Outswing did Holder, Inswing does Brathwaite, Umesh on a hat-trick, West Indies nine down. 213/9
Mohammed Shami2046643.30959120
14.2 to R Chandrika, yelps and cackles and roars from the Indians as Chandrika pushing at balls with hard hands catches up with him. This is back of a length and outside off, but the batsman thrusts himself at it, following the away movement off the seam, gets an edge and Saha is safe as houses. 30/1
42.3 to DM Bravo, extra bounce! He's looked excellent this morning, his lines have been relentlessly outside off, and he is pushing through his action so nicely that he is getting the ball to misbehave just enough. This back of a length delivery lifts more than Bravo expects outside off and the little glide through point instead becomes a top edge to the keeper. Pushed at the ball because of the angle into him, it straightens to undo him. 90/3
48.2 to MN Samuels, 50th in Tests for Shami, and its a fine delivery. In the off stump channel, against a man who hasn't been very keen to move his feet forward or across. Thrusts his hands out, only to feather an edge through to the wicketkeeper. 92/4
48.6 to J Blackwood, two in the over, Shami's lines have been outstanding this morning and he has had this knack of getting this Antigua pitch to give him treasonous extra bounce. The hosts had a big, tall fast bowler doing that. He could only get two wickets in 21 overs. Here Shami has that many in five balls. Back of a length ball on a fifth stump line, Blackwood pushes at it, gets a thick edge and Rahane takes a lovely catch, revers cup, in front of his eyes, in the cordon. 92/5
Ravichandran Ashwin1754302.52847000
Amit Mishra15.244322.80747000
32.1 to D Bishoo, big appeal for a stumping, and India are celebrating! Bishoo goes for the sweep shot, is beaten in flight, because of which he has had to drag his back foot out of the crease, panicking as he tries to make contact. Couldn't. Saha does well behind the stumps to knock the bails off before the bat can complete its swing and get back inside the crease. Foot was on the line, easy decision for the third umpire. 68/2
90.2 to ST Gabriel, doesn't read the googly! Throws it up outside off to suck Gabriel into a slog sweep, misses and the middle stump takes a shellacking. 243/10

Ishant Sharma1122712.45573003
0.5 to KC Brathwaite, got im! Late swing! Deadly swing! West Indies have been hiding in their creases all day, even against deliveries as full as this one. Which means he has allowed the ball to move, allowed it to do the very thing that defeats him. Plays all around it, the flick shot ending up starting at a line outside that the ball takes and nails his pads in front of middle. 2/1
Mohammed Shami1032602.60504001
Umesh Yadav1343412.61646000
13.5 to DM Bravo, beautiful catch - diving low to his left to get two hands under the ball. Rahane is phenomenal in the cordon. Gets the chance to show off his skills as Umesh takes a back of a length ball away from Bravo, who had been set up with inswingers at the start of the over and as a result pushes at the ball. 21/2
Ravichandran Ashwin2588373.3211911300
35.5 to R Chandrika, very good work from bowler and keeper. Loads more revs on the ball, and the seam whirs around, while being bolt upright and pointing at leg slip. Chandrika is sucked into playing a flick shot on the front foot, and that's when the ball dips, seems to take an inside edge, brushes the pad and goes through to the wicketkeeper. Saha doesn't take it on the first grab, but he recovers it on the third.. 88/3
37.5 to J Blackwood, taken at short midwicket, and a pair for Blackwood. Gorgeous bowling from Ashwin again, giving the ball flight to draw the batsman forward and to make him think he can attack it. But then he makes it dip, which means when Blackwood plays the flick even with the roll of the wrists the ball goes up in the air. Good on Kohli to keep a short midwicket, it's him at that position, diving away to his left. 92/4
41.5 to MN Samuels, ripper! Samuels has played down the wrong line, worried about a repetition of big spinning offbreak earlier in the over. Tosses it up outside off, the drift away from the bat does Samuels in. Otherwise the turn would have been countered by the full face of the bat. As such the ball pitches further away from him outside off and beats his outside edge. 101/5
45.4 to RL Chase, gorgeous bowling again! Dip this time to knock Chase out. He was lunging forward, prepared to block with hard hands. Had he reached the pitch of the ball, he may well have. But this one eludes him and is therefore able to turn, bounce, take the top of the bat and settle in KL Rahul's hands. Sharp, low catch from the substitute. 106/6
53.2 to JO Holder, that will feel sweet! First five-for outside Asia. Second time he has a hundred and a five-for in the same match. Come hit me, the ball says as he lobs it up outside off, Holder falls into the trap, goes for the cover drive, leaves a big gap between bat and pad and the leg stump takes a beating. 132/8
77.3 to D Bishoo, whipped straight at midwicket. Tossed up on the pads, Bishoo goes for another aggressive stroke and doesn't mind the field. Pujara was there, and it went straight to him. 227/9
77.6 to ST Gabriel, plays inside the line and gets his off stump pegged back. That is India's first innings win in the West Indies. A shortish ball pitches outside off and is virtually allowed to go past him by Gabriel playing down the wrong line. 231/10
Amit Mishra1936113.21857101
48.6 to SO Dowrich, misjudges the googly! It's tossed up on off stump, Dowrich plays outside the line and is struck on the front pad, low enough and perfectly in line with the stumps. Apologies, it wasn't the traditional googly. More of a topspinner that came in with the angle. 120/7
