BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ishant Sharma3298412.6215512001
103.5 to KA Edwards, Sharma has remained persistent, and is rewarded now. Edwards pushes at a short-of-a-length delivery, just outside off. I think it's the movement in that makes Edwards pushes at it. He doesn't quite reach the line, though, and edges it through to Dhoni. 314/3
Varun Aaron28410633.7812018000
163.6 to DM Bravo, Oh destiny. Bravo falls on 166. Lara scored 167 in his 13th Test. Aaron gets his maiden Test wicket. Length ball, wide of off, not too wide. Close enough to drive. Bravo goes hard at it, and manages only an edge through to Dhoni. Bravo now needs to score 1 not out in the second innings to maintain the Lara stats. 518/5
165.5 to CS Baugh, Aaron has spent hours waiting for his bus. And now two have arrived one after the other. Baugh looks to turn this down to third man, gets a bottom edge, into the off stump. 524/6
169.4 to DJG Sammy, Aaron is on a roll here. The buses are coming by a truckload. Short of a length, outside off, Sammy wants to punch this powerfully. The ball holds its line slightly, the edge is taken, and Aaron has three. 540/7
Pragyan Ojha481012612.6221713000
150.1 to KOA Powell, gone against the run of play. A good catch from Dhoni. Powell goes in the 80s to emulate Edwards's effort. This is the quicker one outside off, Powell plays a slightly loose cut away from the body, gets a thick edge, which Dhoni pouches. Another century missed. 474/4
Ravichandran Ashwin52.1615652.9921817000
52.5 to AB Barath, there's the wicket. The batsmen's concentration hasn't been spot on for the last 15 minutes. Barath presses half forward, and then stays there - neither forward nor back - to a length-ball offbreak. The ball turns and bounces, gets the inside edge onto the pad, and lobs up for an easy catch for Dhoni. 137/1
58.6 to KC Brathwaite, Ashwin strikes again. Bat-pad again. Again the well-set batsman. KB is not too pleased with the decision. This one dips on Brathwaite, who is found not to the pitch of the ball. The ball turns, seemingly past the inside edge, and lobs off the pad. Indians have no doubt there is bat involved, the umpire has no doubt bat is involved. KB is not convinced, though. It has kissed the glove on the way. Entirely possible that KB didn't feel it. Top call by the ump. 150/2
174.1 to R Rampaul, A straighter one from round the stumps. RR defends for an offbreak, is hit on the pad, and then bat, and taken at silly point. Ashwin starts appealing for leg-before first, which is a very good shout too. The umpire, though, gives him out caught. Two distinct sounds there. 563/8
176.6 to MN Samuels, Carrom ball. Gone. Dravid takes a good, low catch. Just short of a length, Samuels moves forward to play for an offbreak, then sees it break away a touch, and instinctively opens the face. The edge is taken, and the low chance is pouched at slip. 566/9
184.1 to D Bishoo, That's a Michelle. Ashwin's second five-for in three Tests. Bishoo tries to slog a full ball, this is an arm ball - full and quick, and takes out the off stump. 590/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Fidel Edwards28411614.1411714205
81.1 to VVS Laxman, Laxman gone first ball. Did this stop at him? Laxman sees driving length, and does without really coming forward. the ball takes a thick edge through to gully. It was the slight late swing that did it. He looks suspiciously at the pitch. West Indies right in. India need 104 to avoid follow-on, a young batsman walks in next. 287/4
Ravi Rampaul24.439533.8510112020
33.6 to G Gambhir, He is gone. Loose shot. He very rarely pulls. This is a high bouncer. His head is falling away as he pulls. Misses. Baugh goes up immediately. Gambhir shakes his head. Doesn't seem to have touched it, hard to tell if there was a faint nick. Nothing on the snicko. The umpire's finger goes up. He walks back slowly. Tendulkar puts on his helmet. The crowd goes wild again as Gambhir reaches the boundary. 138/2
86.6 to SR Tendulkar, Don't whisper a word. The whole world will be able to hear you. Wankhede is stunned into silence. Rampaul spoils the party, Sammy holds the catch at second slip. Rampaul goes on a celebratory run. Short, not too wide, bounces rib-high, Tendulkar wants to punch, but ends up opening the face on it. Sammy takes a sharp catch at second slip. Five Tests ago he had dropped Dravid in the same position for the man to score a match-winning century. Not today. Just a sigh from Tendulkar as he walks back. A slight grimace towards the end of the walk, looks at the crowd, looks at bat. Walks off. he still has 30 more centuries than the next best. 322/5
135.4 to R Ashwin, he is gone now. Can aim for another five-for now. Top-edges this pull. Caught at midwicket. Lovely effort from Ashwin. 482/10
Daren Sammy2639023.4611413120
14.3 to V Sehwag, Sehwag is gone. The ground is stunned into silence. Accuracy does it. This is just short of a driving length, pitched around off, and nips back in slightly. Sehwag is forward but it sneaks through the gap. 67/1
91.4 to MS Dhoni, Sammy strikes. India in strife. This game is on. Stumps shattered. Tony Cozier would have screamed, "Timbahhh." Dhoni misses a straight full delivery. No feet. Had he been slightly forward he could have driven this on the full. The feet are cemented, the bat comes down slow, and the ball squeezes under it. 331/6
Marlon Samuels1707434.35609000
60.5 to R Dravid, He has bowled him. Dravid tries to late-cut a length-ball offbreak. The ball squeezes under the at and whispers something to the off stump on the way. The bail comes off. Dravid and the umpires are not sure if Baugh has disturbed the stump or the ball. The replays say the latter. Dravid misses a century, much like West Indies' non-No. 4s. 224/3
125.6 to I Sharma, straight off the bat into the lap of short leg. That one bounced higher than Ishant expected. It was pitched on a length around off stump and Ishant leaned forward to defend. The extra bounce beat him and it's the shoulder of the bat to offer a simple catch to Darren Bravo. 455/8
129.6 to VR Aaron, Timber. Aaron's pretence of being a batsman ends. He enjoyed playing the forward-defensive a lot. He tried it again, but misjudged the amount of turn on this offbreak. The outside edge is beaten, and the off stump pegged back. 463/9
Devendra Bishoo40610612.651787200
116.2 to V Kohli, Kohli is gone, not a delivery that normally gets a wicket, flighted and full, Kohli jumps down the track, he could have smashed that where he liked, instead he picks out the mid-on fielder, Kohli screams in frustration after that shot, I think he's done enough to be the No. 6 on Boxing Day though. 428/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Pragyan Ojha2754761.741252000
4.1 to AB Barath, Soft dismissal. Driven straight to short cover. He was to the pitch of this fullish delivery, but just failed to keep it down. Laxman takes a low catch to his left. 6/1
10.6 to KA Edwards, that is slightly brainless. Edwards is suitably angry too. He jumps down the track and swings down the wrong line. Stumped easily. He has done really well to not destroy something on the way. He is livid with himself. 30/2
38.5 to KC Brathwaite, Goes for the cut, extra bounce, and gone. The over-the-wicket line works. This is pitched middle and off, cuttable length, Brathwaite goes for the shot, but it turns and bounces. Hits the top half of the bat and lobs to point. The crowd likes it. 91/3
46.1 to DM Bravo, Ojha has four out of four. Flighted outside off, Bravo wants to drive to cover, is not quite to the pitch of the ball, the wrists close the face of the bat, he chips it back to Oha, who gleefully accepts it. West Indies 220 for 4 with 77 overs still remaining. 112/4
46.5 to MN Samuels, Ojha has five out of five. A brain freeze for Samuels. Jumps out of the crease, posts his intentions on twitter before doing so, Ojha bowls a quicker full delivery. Samuels swings down the wrong line. The ball turns away past the off stump, and Dhoni completes the stumping. That was a Javagal Srinath shot with the head falling away. West Indies 22 for 5 with 77 overs still to go. 112/5
52.4 to R Rampaul, this is ridiculous. They are disintegrating faster than an empty icecream cone under Steve Waugh's Out Of My Comfort Zone. Rampaul tries the massive slog sweep. Ends up playing it a touch squarer and higher than he wants. Tendulkar makes ground to his right, from deep square, and completes an eventually simple catch. West Indies 237 for 8 with 71 overs remaining, minus two for the changeover. 129/8
Ishant Sharma821501.87392000
Varun Aaron402305.75144000
Ravichandran Ashwin15.203442.21671000
47.5 to CS Baugh, Ojha can't get the perfect 10, but I am sure he won't mind it. The classical offspinner's dismissal. Tossed up outside off, not sure if it drifted away, but Baugh went to drive against the turn and away from the body. The gate was created, and the offbreak burst through. West Indies are having a public nervous breakdown here. 117/6
49.3 to KOA Powell, Huge wicket. Last recognised batsman gone. Bold decision from the umpire. Powell strides forward, this is a length ball, pitches just outside off, goes with the arm. Powell plays for the turn. beaten. The height looks good but it has some distance to travel. Would have clipped leg, but these are the decisions we see given more often these days. The first lbw of the match if I am not mistaken. 120/7
57.1 to DJG Sammy, Sammy is gone. West Indies go deeper into the mire. Short of a length, outside off, open of-side field. Sammy rocks back to force it through the off side. Gets a thick edge, and Dhoni takes a good catch. West Indies 242 for 9, with 66.5 overs to go, minus two for the changeover. 134/9
57.2 to D Bishoo, He spends precisely a minute on the wicket. That's eight wickets in 95 minutes. All ten to spinners. Shambolic from West Indies. Ashwin bowls the arm ball first up, pitches outside off, short of a length, keeps going from outside off. Hit in front of the stumps, no the back foot. Easy lbw decision. 134/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Fidel Edwards702814.00222001
4.3 to G Gambhir, Relief for West Indies. Gambhir drives a length ball with an open face. Fails to keep it down, finds Sammy at point. If this had been West Indies' pre-lunch field, Gambhir would have got an easy single for this. Well done on that rethink. 19/1
Ravi Rampaul1615633.50585000
39.3 to VVS Laxman, The RR bouncer. Laxman is gone. A loose shot. A rare failure for Laxman in chases. The pull is not his best suit. This one he tries to pull from outside off. Almost in slow motion. Top-edges it to mid-on. 165/5
49.4 to MS Dhoni, That should do nicely for West Indies. Right back into the game. Dhoni drives on the up, the ball is dying, and swerving away to the right of short cover, where Edwards takes a smart catch. This is a lovely day of Test cricket. 189/6
62.5 to I Sharma, RR strikes. A hush falls over the Wankhede. This is a beauty. This man has bowled his guts out. Short of a length, seams back in, too good for Sharma. Bursts through the gap. Leg stump is out. 239/8
Marlon Samuels2509323.72803100
20.5 to SR Tendulkar, Tendulkar is gone. Now things get interesting. Will India keep going for the chase? It's a good catch by K Edwards who is wrongfooted initially. This is a length ball, hits one of the dry spots, and bounces more than expected. Tendulkar checks the drive, it hits the top half of the bat, Edwards at short midwicket has moved to his left but this is lobbing to his right. He dives against the momentum, a bit like a bowler in his follow-through, and completes the dive on one of the practice wickets. Neat stuff. 106/3
24.1 to R Dravid, Gone. Now it gets really interesting. Flighted around off. Dravid flicks, but fails to keep it down. Denesh Ramdin leaps high at deepish midwicket to take presumably his first non-wicketkeeper catch. What a day of Test cricket. 113/4
Devendra Bishoo1606524.06546000
19.1 to V Sehwag, Sehwag has found a new way of getting out. He is trying to play the reverse-paddle, but this full toss hits the reverse-leading edge and lobs to short fine leg. Sehwag is bemused. Hugs the bat and goes back. Can't believe it. Can not believe it. 101/2
59.1 to V Kohli, Kohli c limping Sammy b hobbling Bishoo. Lovely twist in the game. This one is short, fair game for the cut, but it turns away too. Kohli gets a top edge on the cut. Sammy is virtually on one leg, but takes the catch. Kohli is distraught. He looks at the pitch as if a best friend has just stabbed him in his back. 224/7
