2.3 to S Dhawan, What have you Dhawan? Strangled down the leg side. Gabriel and the cordon go up. As does umpire Llong's finger. They check for a possible no-ball. The quick is okay on that count as well. This was pitched short and harmlessly down the leg side, Dhawan chases and gloves it behind to Dowrich. Knee-high catch. Did not bounce much. 9/1
128.6 to B Kumar, Bhuvneshwar bags a duck. Back of a length on middle stump at 147.2ks, Bhuvneshwar hops and simply fends it to short leg. Leon Johnson, the man under the helmet, hangs on to the chance. He stayed low and grabbed it at knee-height. Two wickets in two overs. Where did it come from?. 353/8
2466932.871168000
5.3 to V Kohli, Joseph's first international victim is Kohli. Bounced out. Banged in on a back of a length and swerves in just outside off, 141ks, rears up at Kohli and cramps him for room. He is surprised by the extra lift and looks to fend with hard hands. He checked his shot - cut or punch - and just fended it. An edge flies to Bravo at first slip. He clasps it in front of his head. Opened up and undone by pace and bounce. What a moment for Joseph. Joel Garner, who presented the cap to Joseph, would have been proud of that prancing delivery. 19/2
25.6 to RG Sharma, Rohit has nicked off. The pressure gets to him. Angles in a good-length ball, which swings away on a set of stumps outside off. Rohit is crease-bound as he pokes at this tempter and edges it behind. Dowrich grabs it at knee-height. Well bowled, Joseph. The quick has always been at the batsman. Rohit, though, disappoints on return. The team management made a big call to pick him when Vijay and Pujara were left out. And Rohit has let them down with this impatient prod. He will be under greater pressure in the second innings. 87/4
121.5 to WP Saha, Has Saha nicked off? Bump ball? Joseph is mobbed by his team-mates. Umpires Tucker and Llong converge. They call on the TV umpire Brathwaite. Yes, Saha has to exit. Not a bump ball. Good clean catch from Dowrich. Attempts an Offcutting delivery very full outside off, Saha jams his bat down at a drive. The ball bounces just in front of the bat, nearly yorking him. Takes the edge and carries low to Dowrich, diving to his right. WI find a breakthrough after 434 balls. End of a hard-fought knock. 339/6
21.485432.491098010
127.1 to RA Jadeja, Finally some success for Cummins. Sweet taste of success. Maiden Test wicket. He had to wait 281 balls for this. Back of a length and angled away from the left hander from over the wicket. Jadeja has a flat-footed slash. Dowrich dives to his left and snaps up the thick edge. 351/7
129.1 to R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar and Ashwin fall either side of the drinks break. Make that three wickets in 13 balls. Banged in short and kicks up at the chest. Fierce lifter as Ashwin is caught in a tangle. Fends awkwardly and lobs a catch to backward point off the shoulder of the bat. 118 off nearly 300 balls. 353/9
129.4 to I Sharma, Ishant done in by the short ball as well. This carries to short leg. Johnson takes it and races off the field to get ready to bat. Dug in short and rises at Ishant. He leaps and fends it to the fielder. Johnson dives to his right and completes another fine catch. Cummins falls on the floor and celebrates. He had to wait 281 balls for his first wicket. He now has three in ten balls and India have been dismissed for 353. 353/10
1973401.78972001
3397022.121563100
19.3 to KL Rahul, Fifty and out. He can't convert this into a big one. He had previously converted three fifties into tons. The celebrations are short-lived. Lapse in concentration? This was pushed through quick and flat by Chase, Rahul looks to play with the spin again. He ends up chipping an attempted flick in the air. Short fine leg, who had been moved from deep point before this ball, dives forward and snaps it up. An attacking knock meets a soft end. 77/3
49.3 to AM Rahane, Oh, Rahane has missed this dipping full toss on off. This was looped up high, so much so it ended up as a full toss. Rahane shaped to sweep across the line. The ball dipped at him and ultimately yorked him as he missed the line. Reward for Chase as he hits the off stump. Rahane has failed to capitalise, after diggin' in, much like Pujara. He can't believe it. 126/5

87.2 to J Blackwood, edged and taken! Bhuvneshwar has reward for probing bowling. Lands it on off. Curving awayswinger. Blackwood has a short stride, poking and nicking. That's Bhuvneshwar's first Test scalp since January 2015. Kohli snaps up the waist-high catch at second slip. 202/4
89.5 to MN Samuels, bowled'em. follows the outswinger with the inswinger. What a double-strike from Bhuvneshwar. Back of a length and veers in from wide of the crease, dupes Samuels. He camps back and chops belatedly. He did not see that comin'. He was searching for the outswinger. The ball takes the inside edge, bounces just in front of the stumps, and messes up the furniture. 203/5
93.5 to JO Holder, Bhuvneshwar removes Holder as well. Good length and swings in, Holder is neither forward nor back. He is beaten on the inside edge and hit on the pad. Umpire Tucker raises his finger to hand Bhuvneshwar his third. Struck the back leg in front of middle. The tracker shows that it would have grazed leg. Bhuvneshwar is on a roll!. 212/7
95.4 to AS Joseph, It's that man Bhuvneshwar again. Terrific spell from him. Joseph bags a duck on debut. Good length and curls away outside off, from wide of the crease, Joseph has a crooked poke and the outside edges carries to Rahul at third slip. Joseph was opened up and gone. 212/8
103.4 to SO Dowrich, bobble, bobble, and taken finally by Dhawan! Bhuvneshwar's third Test five-for wraps WI up for 225. Say cheese: Coach Kumble snaps up the moment with his camera. Back of a length and outside off with extra bounce. No real movement. Dowrich jabs and nicks it to first slip. Dhawan grabs it against his chest, on the rebound. Take a bow, Bhuvneshwar!. 225/10
1735803.41779000
2675222.001284100
58.1 to KC Brathwaite, Brathwaite has been caught down the leg side. WI's overnight batsmen (or rather the batsmen from the second day) have been dismissed within the first hour. Pitches on middle and breaks down the leg side with extra bounce. The opener attempts a leg-side tickle. The ball kisses the glove and Saha gobbles it up smartly. 135/3
102.3 to ML Cummins, turn and bounce accounts for Cummins. Tossed up on off and breaks away, Cummins prods and nicks it, Saha completing another smart catch, grabbing it in front of his chest this time. It just flicked the glove on its way to the keeper. Falls for a 21-ball duck. 221/9
1324013.07594002
55.4 to DM Bravo, Bravo has been bounced out again! The top-edge flies to long leg. Oh wait, wait, the umpire's check for a possible front-foot no-ball. No part of the heel behind the line. The foot is on the line. Front-foot no-ball. Bouncer angling away just outside off, rushes Bravo into a hook. He takes his eyes off this throat-high ball and makes a mess of the shot. The edge soars to fine leg. Jadeja clasps it in front of his chest. Umpires Tucker and Llong call on the TV umpire Oh, what happening? The TV umpire Brathwaite gives it out. Bravo is done in by the lifter, again. An Indian bowler finds a wicket after 87 overs, stretching back to the Jamaica Test. 129/2
2492711.121251000
90.5 to RL Chase, Jadeja strikes now. Tossed up and turns away outside off, Chase has a lousy waft and edges it low to lone slip. Rahane bends low to his right and pouches it safely. Three wickets in four overs. 205/6

7.3 to KL Rahul, edged to second slip. Brathwaite bends low and catches it. Good length and straightens in the channel outside off, Rahul opens the face and runs it to the fielder. He couldn't thread the cordon on this ocassion. 49/1
11.6 to V Kohli, Cummins spins around, appeals, tumbles, and celebrates. He has Kohli lbw. Umpire Llong's finger goes up. Incoming ball on a good length at 137ks. Kohli plays down the wrong line and falls over. Rapped on the front pad. Impact may have been just a shade outside off, but umpire's call it is. The tracker shows that it would hit middle. 58/2
39.2 to RG Sharma, Rohit fails to add to his overnight tally. He suggests that he had nicked that. And replays pick up the inside edge. Good length and angled in from over the wicket, Rohit pushes with a straight bat and edges it onto his back pad. Umpire Llong raises his finger. Rohit has to exit. 157/4
43.3 to WP Saha, Saha has been given out caught behind by umpire Llong. Cummins celebrates for the second time in the morning. Wait, wait. He has overstepped, replays show. And it has not been called a front-foot no-ball. That wasn't referred either. Second wrong decision of the morning. Back of a length and close to off, cramps the batsman for room and kicks up at him. Saha shapes to cut and ends up feathering behind to Dowrich. 181/5
47.2 to RA Jadeja, Jadeja holes out and Cummins completes his maiden five-for. Will Kohli call them in? Nope, Ashwin walks out to the middle. Full and angling away from Jadeja outside off, he has a biiiiiiig swing and ends up skying a catch to cover. Tumbling catch from Samuels. 213/6
47.6 to R Ashwin, Make that a six-wicket haul for Cummins. And Kohli calls them in. India declare with a lead of 345. Short and outside off, Ashwin did not quite get on top of it. Ends up cutting high into the lap of Brathwaite at backward point. Overhead catch. 217/7
915005.55241000
1114113.72421100
16.3 to S Dhawan, Plumb! Dhawan is pinned in front of off and middle stumps. Stuck flush on the front boot. He is yorked from round the wicket. Fired in, Dhawan, who looked to press forward, can't squeeze it out. Misjudged the length. Looked very adjacent. 72/3

4.2 to KC Brathwaite, After teasing Brathwaite with some outswingers, Bhuvneshwar swings this one in, and gets it to straighten on off and middle. Pretty full in length. Brathwaite plays across the line and falls over. Bang in front. Umpire Tucker's finger almost went up instantly. The tracker confirms that it would clatter into off. WI 4 for the loss of their openers inside five overs. 4/2
1121531.36551000
3.5 to LR Johnson, Johnson pops a catch to short leg and exits for a five-ball duck! Rohit, under the helmet, takes it to his right. Good catch. Finally, he has hung onto one. Back of a length and angled in, Johnson can't keep it down. Fends with firm hands to the fielder. 4/1
37.1 to SO Dowrich, Edged and taken by Kohli at second slip. Fuller, angled in, and straightens around off. Dowrich pushes and nicks it behind. Shami built that up with a volley of dots. Kohli, who stood forward than usual at second slip, takes it low. Good ploy, considering the edges aren't carrying. 84/6
41.4 to DM Bravo, Shortish and angled in from wide of the crease, round the wicket. Bravo fends and squirts an inside edge that loops off the thigh pad and drops into the hands of Rohit at short leg who is standing a few feet back. After all those verbal volleys between Bravo and Rohit, the latter has the last laugh. India two away from triumph. 95/8
703024.28302001
13.2 to MN Samuels, The offstump is sent cartwheeling. What a pleasing sight for a fast bowler. Ishant is pumped. Back of a length and Ishant brings this one back into the batsman. Samuels as he often does camps back, and chooses to cut. The length was neither too short nor the line was too wide. The ball seams in and shoots through the gate. Beaten on the inside and timbaaaaah. Samuel's attempt to smash the leather off the ball fails miserably. 35/3
25.2 to RL Chase, Ishant does Chase in. Good length inswinger from wide of the crease, over the wicket, 140ks, Ishant rides his car through the gate. Got Samuels through the gate as well. Chase is slightly late to move forward, and is beaten on the inside. India six away from triumph. The off stump is knocked out of the ground. 64/4
1222812.33593000
42.1 to AS Joseph, Ashwin lodges himself into the wickets column now. Joseph bags a pair on debut. Ashwin lobs this offbreak up on middle. Invites the big hit from Joseph. He shovels it in the air. Skied off the inside half. Shami initially misjudged it running in from the deep. He then recovers, dives forward, and completes the low catch at midwicket. Ashwin has a wry smile on his face. India one away from wrapping up the series. 95/9
5.312023.63241100
29.1 to J Blackwood, Jadeja comes on. Saha thinks he has Blackwood stumped. They refer it to the TV umpire. Did Blackwood drag his back leg back in time? Think there is nothing behind the line. The foot is on the line. TV umpire Brathwaite rules it out. Saha is congratulated by his team-mates. Jadeja tossed this up outside off and found some sharp turn. Dragging Blackwood forward who likes to tonk the ball. He stretches forward for a big drive and is beaten past the outside edge. Quicksilver work from Saha. He rode the extra bounce and turn superbly. Collects the ball to his right and knocked off the stumps India five away from victory. 68/5
47.3 to ST Gabriel, India win by 237 runs and wrap up the series. The celebrations begin in the Indian camp. Coach Kumble gets a win in his first series in charge. Jadeja gives it loads of air on middle. Gabriel has a good ol' No.11 slog. He ends up holing out to Bhuvneshwar who broke the game open for India. Pouches it safely at deep midwicket. 108/10
