Live Commentary

Over 55. no runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. West Indies: 168/10(rr 3.05)
54.1
OUT! Bowled. Ahmed to Cottrell. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed.

That's it! Another jaffer from Shami who takes the middle stump out of the ground again with a beautiful in-swinging delivery. That gives him figures of 5-47 for the innings and 9-118 in the match.

A devastating performance from this young Indian team has seen them win by an innings inside 3 days. They dominated all sessions bar one in the match and outplayed their opponents in every aspect.

Debutant Mohammed Shami lead the way on the opening day by taking 4-71 and ensuring his side were batting come the end of the day. The game was even by Lunch on day 2 with India 120-5 before Rohit Sharma and Ravi Ashwin turned the game on its head with a 280-run 7th wicket partnership. Trailing by 219 going into their 2nd innings, the West Indies top order all fell after making starts, before Shami destroyed the tail giving India a comprehensive victory.

Part 1 of Sachin's farewell series has seen India destroy their opponents without the need for the little master. His fans will be hoping he has a bigger part to play in Mumbai next week when he finally signs off from the game.
Over 54. 5 runs. Bowler: Ravichandran Ashwin. West Indies: 168/9(rr 3.11)
53.6
APPEAL! Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Arm length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Dhoni, appeal made for L.B.W.

A big appeal but sliding down leg. Every Indian fan in the stadium went up with the team!
53.5
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Vijay.
53.4
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.

53.2
Ashwin to Cottrell. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Kohli.
53.1
FOUR! Ashwin to Cottrell. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

Cottrell gets his first runs in Test cricket by taking advantage of the attacking field and driving straight back past the bowler.
Over 53. 4 runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. West Indies: 163/9(rr 3.08)
52.6
Ahmed to Chanderpaul. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
52.5
FOUR! Ahmed to Chanderpaul. Out-swinging length ball, off stump no foot movement driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

Top shot from Chanderpaul though he was probably looking for the single!
52.4
Ahmed to Chanderpaul. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
52.3
Ahmed to Chanderpaul. Short, down leg side ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.

51.4
Ashwin to Cottrell. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.
51.3
OUT! Caught. Ashwin to Best. Off break length ball, outside off stump no foot movement slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, fielded by Ojha.

India are just one wicket away from victory now as Tino is tempted into the big shot and miscues it straight down Ojha's throat.
51.2
Ashwin to Best. Doosra length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Vijay.
51.1
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Sharma.
Over 51. 3 runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. West Indies: 158/8(rr 3.10)
50.6
Ahmed to Best. Short, outside off stump swayed away, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.

Shami is running in with real purpose here desperate for a 5-fer. Tino is doing his best to make sure that doesn't happen. No pun intended.
50.5
Ahmed to Best. Short, off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
50.4
Ahmed to Chanderpaul. In-swinging half volley, to leg on the back foot flick, well timed to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Kohli.

Over 50. 2 runs. Bowler: Ravichandran Ashwin. West Indies: 155/8(rr 3.10)
49.6
Ashwin to Best. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Kohli.

The result of this game seems inevitable now, though it will be interesting to see how long these two can last at the crease. Chanderpaul has watched the carnage from the non-strikers end, probably not for the first time in his career.
49.5
Ashwin to Best. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to silly point for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
49.4
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Doosra length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Tendulkar.
49.3
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Vijay.
49.2
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break half volley, middle stump down the track driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.
49.1
Ashwin to Best. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Tendulkar.
Over 49. 1 run. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. West Indies: 153/8(rr 3.12)
48.6
Ahmed to Best. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Ashwin.
48.5
OUT! Run Out. Ahmed to Permaul. In-swinging yorker, middle stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to wicketkeeper, fielded by Dhoni.

A crazy couple of minutes for the West Indies. Permaul gets a middle stump yorker first ball, which may well have been LBW but wasn't given. The ball goes through to Dhoni who spots Permaul out of his crease while the appeal is going on and manages to run him out. Great cricket from the Indians.
48.4
OUT! Bowled. Ahmed to Shillingford. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed.

That delivery just about trumps the last one. It's a big in-swinger and finds the gap between bat and pad as Shillingford plays the drive. Stunning.
48.3
Ahmed to Shillingford. Length ball, to leg moves in front glancing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
48.2
OUT! Bowled. Ahmed to Sammy. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed.

That is the delivery of the match! Pitching outside off stump there is a hint of swing and a nice bit of movement of the pitch which completely bamboozles Sammy and his middle stump is removed. Shami is having the debut of dreams.
48.1
Ahmed to Sammy. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Ojha.
Over 48. 4 runs. Bowler: Ravichandran Ashwin. West Indies: 152/5(rr 3.17)
47.6
Ashwin to Sammy. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Ahmed.

The umpires call for a drink as we're half way through the session. The visitors still trail by 67 runs.
47.5
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break full toss, off stump down the track driving, well timed to deep extra cover for 3 runs, run save by Ahmed.

Good footwork from the fielder on the boundary, saving his team a run.
47.4
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, outside off stump no foot movement Steer, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
47.3
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, to leg on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Dhawan.
47.2
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Sharma.
47.1
Ashwin to Chanderpaul. Off break length ball, middle stump on the back foot Steer, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Sharma.
Over 47. 1 run. Bowler: Pragyan Ojha. West Indies: 148/5(rr 3.15)
46.6
Ojha to Sammy. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ojha.

Good tight stuff from the bowlers. Trying to make the batsmen play a false shot by building the pressure.
46.5
Ojha to Sammy. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Pujara.
46.4
Ojha to Sammy. Stock length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Vijay.
46.3
Ojha to Sammy. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed to cover for no runs, fielded by Pujara.
46.2
Ojha to Sammy. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ojha.
46.1
Ojha to Chanderpaul. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Ojha.
Over 46. 7 runs. Bowler: Ravichandran Ashwin. West Indies: 147/5(rr 3.20)
45.6
Ashwin to Sammy. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to short leg for no runs, dropped catch by Vijay.

That was a difficult chance diving to his left one handed and it's gone down.
45.5
FOUR! Ashwin to Sammy. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs.

Very nicely put away by the skipper.
45.4
Ashwin to Sammy. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.
45.3
