TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 4.22, 200 Mins)211/9
Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Adrian Barath, 4.2 ov), 2-46 (Marlon Samuels, 8.1 ov), 3-52 (Lendl Simmons, 9.6 ov), 4-127 (Danza Hyatt, 26.3 ov), 5-154 (Darren Bravo, 34.4 ov), 6-159 (Kieron Pollard, 36.5 ov), 7-169 (Daren Sammy, 41.3 ov), 8-183 (Denesh Ramdin, 44.2 ov), 9-200 (Andre Russell, 47.4 ov)
4.2 to AB Barath, what an absolute beaut of a delivery! No pace on that, it didn't have to be fast. It just kept coming in out of his hand, but after landing back of a length, it just kept going away. Barath was on the back foot, and got squared up as he kept moving the bat to the right in search of the ball, but all he got was a thin outside edge through to Parthiv. Tony Hill takes his time, but gets the decision right.. 18/1
9.6 to LMP Simmons, life is fair. Umesh, easily the best bowler so far today, has a wicket. Simmons never really came to grips with his pace. Another one blasts its way through an apologetically late attempt at a cut. The ball blitzed in, took the inside edge and made a mess of the furniture.. 52/3
44.2 to D Ramdin, and gone. Yadav recovers nicely on his followthrough to run back towards the umpire and complete a return catch. Ramdin stayed back and was looking to swing to the leg side, but ends up getting a meek edge.. 183/8
8.1 to MN Samuels, timber! Samuels ends up looking as clumsy as humpty dumpty. Aaron gets his natural inward shape from a length. Samuels is stuck with the most curious stance since Chanderpaul, and just lunges forward to feel for it. One leg is in Cuttack, the other in Bhubaneshwar and the bat somewhere in between. He is beaten by the inward movement, the ball hits the back pad and disturbs leg stump. Might have been saved if the stance wasn't so open. Or so weird.. 46/2
47.4 to AD Russell, We have seen pace, we have seen spin and now we see lack of pace get a wicket. 115 kph from Aaron, he's delighted to have a wicket with that one. Russell spots it late and looks to force the cut away through point, but gets an inside edge onto him stumps, to leave Aaron grinning with glee.. 200/9
36.5 to KA Pollard, Pollard's woes against spin continue. Ashwin strikes. Short of a length and spinning in, Pollard stays back and tries to hoist it out of the ground, but picks out long-on. Horrible stroke.. 159/6
41.3 to DJG Sammy, Gone. Jadeja's turn to slip in the arm ball past a confused West Indies batsmen with neither the footwork nor the eye to deal with such variations. Sammy doesn't cover the line, doesn't spot the deviation and just hangs the bat limply in hope for turn. He's haplessly outside the line, and the ball shoots through to strike timber.. 169/7
34.4 to DM Bravo, bowled him! Raina's quicker one - 94 kph - does the trick. It landed on off, but didn't turn away like the other deliveries. It just skidded on as Bravo drove loosely away from the body. The ball slipped past the inner half of the bat and hit off stump. End of a very good innings, just before the Powerplay too.. 154/5

TOTAL48.5 Ov (RR: 4.36, 240 Mins)213/9
Fall of wickets: 1-37 (Parthiv Patel, 4.1 ov), 2-41 (Gautam Gambhir, 4.4 ov), 3-47 (Virat Kohli, 6.3 ov), 4-51 (Virender Sehwag, 9.3 ov), 5-59 (Suresh Raina, 11.2 ov), 6-142 (Ravindra Jadeja, 28.3 ov), 7-159 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 31.5 ov), 8-201 (Rohit Sharma, 45.2 ov), 9-201 (Vinay Kumar, 46.1 ov)
4.1 to PA Patel, Parthiv wastes yet another chance to make an impression. When will he take his batting seriously? Short and wide outside off, it was there for the smashing, but Parthiv doesn't bother to keep it down. Cut with delicious timing, but straight to point.. 37/1
4.4 to G Gambhir, Two in the over, Gambhir gone now! Again short, again wide, again Gambhir tries to cut over the top, but this time it bounces extra and takes a thin edge, straight into the keeper's gloves. If Sehwag is worried, he isn't showing it. He walks across to umpire Tarapore and has a smile and a chat about the dismissal.. 41/2
6.3 to V Kohli, Roach strikes again, Kohli is gone and we have a match on our hands! Roach nips this one in off the seam, Kohli gets across in a lazy manner without getting bat and pad close together and the ball darts through before he can drag the bat back in. It bounced a bit more too after hitting the seam to hit the top of the stumps. Kohli looks stunned.. 47/3
45.2 to RG Sharma, Wicket! West Indies thought the match was past their reach, but is it? They are favourites now. Rohit has gone, playing all over a straight ball from Martin that somehow finds its way onto the stumps. It didn't turn, it just slipped along and missed Rohit's flick, hit the pad and changed direction to hit the stumps. He throws his head back in frustration as he walks back. India need 11 now and have only the fast bowlers left.. 201/8
9.3 to V Sehwag, Timber! Sehwag is gone now, bowled through the gate. He goes for a loose drive to a length ball nipping in off the seam prodigiously. He hasn't had many chances to come forward, and when he did, he was very loose, pushing well away from the body. The ball slips through easily and hits the stumps. Kohli was at least trying to close the gap, Sehwag was just opening it further and further. India in dire straits.. 51/4
11.2 to SK Raina, Raina gone, and West Indies are favourites to win this now. He was hopelessly early on a shot now. 137 kph, full ball outside off, Raina leans out early and scoops the drive straight to mid-on. That dismissal was softer than a baby's bottom.. 59/5
46.1 to R Vinay Kumar, brainfreeze! Vinay has thrown it away. Is this his Srinath moment? Full length ball outside off, he decides to take matters into his own hand and tries to launch this over the off side. He can't quite get under it, and scoops it to mid-off who tumbles and pouches. Vinay looks gutted. The other fast bowler from Karnataka used to play such madcap shots too.. 201/9
28.3 to RA Jadeja, Jadeja has thrown it away, and West Indies are right back in this. Full and wide of off stump, he goes at it without getting entirely across and ends up slashing uppishly straight to point.. 142/6
