ICC World Cup
MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
Close So that's your lot for today and also from the group stages, India have won in Chennai to clinch second spot in Group B and a quarter-final clash with reigning champions Australia on Thursday. West Indies will have to turn things around quickly as they travel to Mirpur to face Group A winners Pakistan. The other two ties see Sri Lanka play England in Colombo and New Zealand take on South Africa. Please join us for coverage of EVERY one of those games in the coming days.
Over 43: Ashwin 0-1-0-1-0-W 188 - WICKET! Stick a fork in the West Indies, they're done. After batting sensibly enough during his short time at the crease, Rampaul can't help but have a go at Ashwin, who has surely done enough today to keep his place. All he does though is make contact with thin air to be bowled, confirming a quite dramatic slump that as seen the Windies go from 154-2 to 188 all out. At one stage they were hot favourites to win this game; they've ended up losing by 80 runs.
Over 42: Zaheer W-0-0-4-0-0 186-9 - WICKET! - Sarwan falls when an attempt to hit Zaheer over the top only provides a comfortable catch on the run for Ashwin out at deep cover. The task just proved too much for even someone of Sarwan's capabilities, having come to the crease with his side on top he has seen the rest of the order crumble around him. Bishoo does pick up a boundary by steering a short ball over the top of the slip, but it's too little, too late now. Windies need a mere 83 from 48 deliveries.
Over 41: Ashwin 0-0-1-0-0w-0-1 182-8 - Ashwin comes back having bowled eight pretty good overs up front: It appears India see him as a powerplay expert. If India, as it seems, go on to win this game, they will come up against Australia in the mother of all quarter-final clashes.
Over 40: Zaheer 0-1-1w-1-1-0-W 179-8 - WICKET! It's more 'Gentle Benn' than 'Big Benn' when the tall left-hander is fooled by a slower ball from Zaheer, playing far too early at the ball and lobbing it to the (relatively) safe hands of Munaf Patel. It just goes from bad to worse for the Windies, who now seem certain to face Pakistan in Mirpur next. This result is also important for England, as they now look like travelling to Colombo to take on Sri Lanka.
Over 39: Harbhajan 4-1-0-0-0-1 174-7 - Great minds must think alike: Sarwan takes the batting powerplay and then starts it off immediately with a boundary, slog-sweeping Harbhajan, who is bowling around the wicket, into the gap at deep midwicket. A single puts Big Benn on strike but he appears less certain playing the sweep, top-edging one right into his helmet. West Indies now require 8.64 an over as Dhoni brings back Zaheer whilst the fielding restrictions are in place.
Over 38: Munaf 1-0-1-0-1-0 168-7 - Singles aren't going to be enough for the Windies from here on in; it's time for Sarwan to seriously think about taking the batting powerplay and trying to change the momentum of this match. They now need 101 from the final 12 overs.
Over 37: Yuvraj 1-0-0-0-0-W 165-7 - WICKET! - This is a calypso collapso now, Andre Russell patting back four balls before slicing his fifth to Yusuf Pathan at backward point. If the century wasn't enough, Yuvraj has pretty much made certain of the man-of-the-match award with two wickets in a crucial phase of this game. The West Indies have now lost five wickets for 11 runs in the last seven overs.
Over 36: Munaf 1-0-W-0w-0-0-1 164-6 - WICKET! - The last thing the Windies needed was a run out, and of the (under-pressure) captain as well. Sarwan clips a ball towards mid-wicket and sets off before shouting 'Nooooooo' to his skipper. It's too late, though, as not even a dive can save Sammy, Munaf taking Raina's throw and whipping off the bails. Sarwan gets a single off the final ball but now the West Indies need 105 from 84 balls. There's also a batting powerplay in danger of going to waste.
Over 35: Yuvraj 0-W-0-0-1-0 161-5 - WICKET! - Thomas is done all ends up by a beauty from Yuvraj that draws the batsman forward and then spins sharply past the outside edge, leaving skipper Dhoni with the easy task of whipping off the bails to complete a textbook stumping for a left-arm spinner. Sammy comes in with his side suddenly swimming against the tide.
Over 34: Harbhajan 0-1-0-0-0-0 160-4 - Harbhajan opts to come around the wicket and now has a man under the helmet for Sarwan, who was caught by Bell at short leg off the bowling of Graeme Swann during the thrilling game in Chennai on Thursday. Just a Thomas single during the over, as West Indies seem to be getting themselves further into a hole.
Over 33: Zaheer 0-1-0-0-1-0 159-4 - The noise level is getting higher...and so too is the required rate for the West Indies. Their nerves aren't calmed when Devon Thomas spars at the first ball he faces from Zaheer, resulting in a long glare from the experienced seamer. The men from the Caribbean now require 110 from 102.
Over 32: Harbhajan 0-0-0-1-W-0 157-4 - WICKET! - Oh dear, oh dear, it appears the pressure just gets too much for some. Pollard can't resist in taking the attack to Harbhajan, but his attempts to take on the off-spinner only result in him holing out to long-on for a single. Even if the injured little finger on his left hand was bothering him, that was a poor shot to get out to. He didn't even go through with the blow, it was like he was attempting to find the man on the fence during catching practice.
Over 31: Zaheer 0-0-W-0-1-1 156-3 - WICKET! - And the heat gets turned up a little more on the Windies, Smith playing all around a well-disguised slower ball from Zaheer to be emphatically bowled for 81. Another good bowling change from Dhoni to bring back his strike bowler and now he's got Pollard in his sights. The new man successfully sees off the first ball he faces and then pushes a single from the next to get off the mark.
Over 30: Harbhajan 1-0-1-1-1-1 154-2 - Five singles are milked off Harbhajan as West Indies look to steady their nerve after a tricky little period. They now need just 115 from the final 20 overs at a required rate of 5.75 an over. I say just, it would be straightforward for any team who was used to winning games of one-day cricket. West Indies are not one of those, or at least not against major nations.
Over 29: Munaf 0-0-0-2-0-1 149-2 - With eight dot balls coming in a row, Smith has an ugly-looking swipe at a wide delivery from Munaf. He looks much better trying to play in a more sensible fashion, as he does with a square drive to break the run of scoreless deliveries. West Indies now need 120 and you sense the pressure is starting to grow - they can see the finishing line now but just don't quite know how to get there.
Over 28: Harbhajan 0-0-0-0-0-0 146-2 - Harbhajan comes back on and starts his second spell with a maiden, each dot ball bringing cheers from the crowd that grow louder and louder as the over goes on. West Indies now require another 123 runs from the final 22 overs, five of which will see the batting powerplay used up.
Over 27: Munaf 1-1-0-1-4-0 146-2 - The 50 partnership comes up from just 56 deliveries when Smith slaps the second ball of the over out to the man at deep cover. It was nearly over, though, as Sarwan is fortunate to see a top-edged hook fall just short of the fielder at fine leg soon after. Smith has no such problems with timing when he has another go at a cut shot, hammering it to the right of point. If they hadn't realised already by now, India should know that Smith likes them there after that boundary.
Over 26: Yusuf 4-0-0-0-2-1 139-2 - Sarwan starts the over in fine fashion for the West Indies, lofting Yusuf Pathan into the vast open spaces at deep mid-wicket for a sensible boundary. India's collapse at the end of their innings - they lost 7-50 to fail to bat out their full 50 overs - looks like it could prove costly in the final reckoning.
Over 25: Munaf 2-0-1-0-1-0 132-2 - There's no sign of reverse swing for Munaf, who is by international standards no more than military fast medium without a bit of movement in the air. Smjith drives Patel's first ball away to the left of the cover sweeper for two of the four runs that come from the over. Can the West Indies finally get over the line against one of the major nations?
Over 24: Yusuf 0-0-0-1-0-1 128-2 - Smith survives a run-out chance as the wide throw gives him just enough time to reach his ground before Dhoni flicks the ball back onto the stumps. Windies need another 141 runs to win as we finally, finally see Munaf come into the attack.
Over 23: Yuvraj 0-6-1-0-0-1 126-2 - Devon knows how he makes (batting look) so creamy. Smith smoothly take a few steps down the wicket and then lifts Yuvraj a long way over the rope at widish long-on. Two singles make it eight from the over - Yuvraj has now bowled 12 balls at a cost of 16 runs.
Over 22: Yusuf 1-0-1-1-0-0 118-2 - The singles are coming easily enough for West Indies, with Dhoni having only four men inside the circle for his part-time spinners. Perhaps now is the time for the co-hosts to see if this now rather dirty ball will reverse swing - poor Munaf is still yet to bowl an over in this match!
Over 21: Yuvraj 4-1-1-0-2 115-2 - Yuvraj comes on to a loud cheer from the crowd. However, they are soon stunned into silence when Sarwan chops away the left-arm spinner's first delivery down towards the third man fence, Munaf just failing to stop it with his right boot and then running through, yes through, an advertising hoarding. Thankfully, the seamer is not seriously hurt. Eight come from Yuvraj's first over to leave the requirement at 154 runs from 174 deliveries.
Over 20: Yusuf 4-1-0-0-1-1 107-2 - Smith gets the action back underway in Chennai with a back cut past the short third man that runs away for a boundary. West Indies are currently going along nicely at 5.35, just 0.05 off the required run-rate. In more straightforward terms, they require another 162 runs from the final 30 overs.
Over 19: Raina 4-0-0-1-1-1 101-2 - This time a Raina long hop gets what it deserves, Smith making room to cut it away backward of point. The left-hander then pushes a single down the ground to bring up his half-century from 64 deliveries. The Windies century also comes up in the final over before DRINKS.
Over 18: Yusuf 0-0-1-0-1-1 94-2 - West Indies need another 175 to win - just like the game against England, they have given themselves a good chance to chase down a very gettable total thanks to a good start. The problem for them in recent years has been dragging themselves across the finishing line. Pollard is down to come in at five but, having suffered what appeared to be a dislocated little finger on his left hand, we've no idea what number he will come out at.
Over 17: Raina 1-1-0-2-1-W 91-2 - WICKET! - Raina is known to be a bit of a 'golden arm' and so it proves, even if the delivery that has taken a wicket was a dreadful one. A rank long hop gave Bravo an age to hit it where he wanted - he ended up choosing long-on's throat. Great change in the bowling from Dhoni and a much-needed breakthrough for India.
Over 16: Yusuf 1-1-0-0-0-0 86-1 - Pathan's not getting much turn - he's not giving it much chance to either, firing in darts that Phil 'The Power' Taylor would be proud of. Still, he only concedes two runs from the over. At this stage of their innings India were 86-2. Ashwin is making way after eight overs - Suresh Raina is going to come on in his place.
Over 15: Ashwin 1-1-1-0-1-2lb 84-1 - A bit of nifty footwork by Munaf Patel, who so far is yet to have a bowl, saves two runs from the final ball of Ashwin's eighth over. It can't, however, stop this partnership moving on to 50 for the second West Indies wicket.
Over 14: Yusuf 1-1-1-0-1-1 78-1 - Yusuf Pathan comes on in place of Harbhajan. There's five singles from the all-rounder's first over as the crowd slips into near silence. The full house sounds more like an empty room right now, the India supporters had obviously hoped their side would do better than this with the ball.
Over 13: Ashwin 1-1-0-6-0-4 73-1 - SHOOOOOTTTT! I swear Brian Lara has just come back for one ball in Chennai, one that is driven extravagantly straight down the ground. It's not actually Lara, but young Bravo looked an absolute copy of the great man in playing that shot, hitting Ashwin way back over his head. The same batsman (Bravo that is, not Lara) cracks four through point off the final ball of the over as the West Indies continue to make good progress in their run chase.
Over 12: Harbhajan 2-4lb-0-0-4-0w-0 61-1 - Troubling times for Harbhajan, who gives away four leg byes with a badly directed doosra and then sees Smith pull him away into the vast spaces at mid-wicket, the ball beating Tendulkar into the rope. West Indies now require another 208.
Over 11: Ashwin 1-0-1-0-1lb-1 50-1 - A scampered single off the last delivery brings up Windies' 50 from 66 balls. Have to say I'm impressed by Ashwin, he's revelling in the chance to bowl in the powerplay overs and is the type of spinner that is tough to get down the wicket to. He is the complete opposite to Harbhajan in that he doesn't turn it that much as well, making the duo an excellent spin pairing.
Over 10: Harbhajan 1-4-0-0-0-0 46-1 - Smith gets the type of width and length he craves, allowing him to rock back and cut away Harbhajan in front of point for a boundary. However, the bowler comes back well from the long hop with four dots finishing off the mandatory powerplay. So who do we see winning this game? Are the teams perhaps wondering about who they could play next? Rob.Lancaster@bskyb.com is the address to send in your e-mails as we move into the bowling powerplay.
Over 9: Ashwin 0-1-0-0-1-0 41-1 - I'm pleased to say that Yuvraj has reported for fielding duty, perhaps so Dhoni can call on his left-arm spin later in the piece. With Suresh Raina also able to bowl, India have plenty of slow options. It appears they're saving Zaheer and Munaf for when the ball gets scuffed up, in the hope they can get it to reverse swing.
Over 8: Harbhajan 0-1-0-1-0-1lb 38-1 - It's a trial by spin for the Windies (just as it ended up being against England) and they don't look comfortable in the dock. Both Smith and Bravo are propping forward without much conviction, instead hoping they get something short to hammer away.
Over 7: Ashwin 1-W-0-1-0-1 36-1 - WICKET! - Edwards is completely bamboozled by Ashwin's 'carrom' ball, one that he pushes out quickly and then turns the other way. The West Indies opener lunged forward and was hit on the front pad looking to work to leg, leading to loud appeals for leg before. Umpire Davis says 'not out', but is forced to overturn his original decision thanks to the help of the television footage. That is the first decision the Australian official has had to change in this tournament.
Over 6: Harbhajan 0-1lb-2-0-6-0 33-0 - Lovely shot from Edwards, who shimmied down the wicket to one tossed up by Harbhajan and powerfully smacked the spinner back over his head for a maximum that landed right where the rest of the India team are sitting. Windies need another 236 to win this match.
Over 5: Ashwin 1-1-1-0-1-0 24-0 - The debate rages on about that run out that was out but wasn't out. What makes the failure of Taufel to call for the help of the third umpire even more strange is that he had got himself in a perfect position to see the throw hit the stumps, so surely he could tell it was too tight to call with the naked eye? Meanwhile, Ashin concedes four singles and after his over is complete, Harbhajan is summoned to replace Zaheer.
Over 4: Zaheer 1-0-1-4-0-0 21-0 - Smith produces a magnificent straight drive that was so impressive even the partisan crowd offer a polite smattering of applause. The next ball is hit towards backward point and after being sent back by Smith, Edwards just beats Kohli's direct hit...at least that's what umpire Taufel says. Replays show that the throw actually beat the batsman, but the Australian never asked for the use of television replays. Oopsy.
Over 3: Ashwin 0-0-4-1-0-1 14-0 - Edwards may be more of a leg side player, but he can still play the cover drive when the opportunity arises. Having seen a floated delivery go to the fence, Ashwin decides against giving it a lot of air for the rest of the over. There's a bit of pressure on the shoulders of the spinner, seen as plenty of experts have been calling for him to be picked in the XI.
Over 2: Zaheer 0w-0-1-1-0-4-0 8-0 - Piyush Chawla is on the field in place of Yuvraj, who was sick during his century earlier in the day and may not be fit to field during the rest of the match, leaving Dhoni without one of his spin options. Edwards - the 158th player to represent the Windies - opens his international account with a single into the covers and then watches opening partner Smith play and miss outside off. However, the left-hander makes excellent contact with the fifth (legal) ball of the over, chopping it away backward of point for a welcome boundary.
Over 1: Ashwin 0-0-0-1-0-0 1-0 - Dhoni decides to give off-spinner Ashwin the first over, something he has done before in the Indian Premier League. It's a good start too, though there's not much sign of turn. Devon Smith works the fourth delivery to deep mid-wicket to get the West Indies off and running, with World Cup debutant Kirk Edwards blocking back the final two balls.
Over 50: Russell W- 268 - WICKET! - I thought the single off the final ball of the 49th over might prove to be a silly decision, and so it proves when Russell bowls Munaf - a genuine rabbit in world cricket - to end the innings with five balls to spare. India have lost seven wickets for 50 runs, with the lower order folding like a pack of cards. It's like history is being repeated after they did something similar against South Africa earlier in this tournament.
Over 49: Rampaul 1-1-1-4-W-1 268-9 - WICKET! - After being hit through the covers for four from the previous ball, Rampaul cleans up Zaheer - who tried to do something far too clever after wandering across his crease - to complete a superb five-wicket haul. He finishes with career-best figures of 5-51, giving the West Indies selectors a serious headache going into the quarter-finals. How can they leave him out? If anyone should be dropped to make way for Roach's return, it's the rather pointless Sammy.
Over 48: Russell 4-0-2-1-W-1 260-8 - WICKET! - Pollard continues to do his bit for the Windies, taking a superb diving catch running in from long-on to see the back of Harbhajan for three. However he's hurt himself in the process...it looks like a dislocated little finger on his left hand as he turns away in anticipation of the physio popping it back in. Another finish to the innings, another collapse from India. They've lost 5 wickets for 41 runs now.
Over 47: Rampaul 1-1-2-W-1-0 252-7 - WICKET! - Another India batsman departs and it's another wicket for Rampaul. Having hit the previous ball over the top of mid-off for a couple, Pathan tries to take the next over mid-wicket. However, he makes no contact at all, resulting in the ball crashing into middle stump. It could have been two-in-two as Ashwin was hung out to dry by Harbhajan when he's called through for a suicidal single. Thankfully, for the batsman, the throw from Sammy misses the stumps at the bowlers' end.
Over 46: Russell 4-1-1-0-1-0 247-6 - Pathan starts the powerplay with a deft guide to a short ball from Russell, getting it perfectly in between the wicketkeeper and the short third man for a welcome boundary. A lot rests on the shoulders of these two now in the powerplay, India have waited and waited but could yet again fall short of the kind of total they had in mind after such a good platform.
Over 45: Pollard 1-1-0w-2-1-1-W 240-6 - WICKET! - Yuvraj's innings is over as he chips back a return catch straight to Pollard, who celebrates like he's just taken the wicket to clinch West Indies the World Cup. Those two had been sparring with each other throughout the day and Pollard seems really pumped up for this game. He gave Pathan an almighty stare when the batsman pulls away at the last minute. We're now going into the batting powerplay and India have lost all their frontline batsmen.
Over 44: Sammy 6-1-1-1-W-0w-0 233-5 - WICKET! - Yuvraj greets Sammy's return to the attack with a thumping pull shot off the front foot that clears the rope by 10 metres and more. However, the West Indies captain does get a wicket later in the over, Rampaul - who you can't keep out of the game today - taking a good catch at short fine leg to end Raina's brief innings at four. That's a disappointing day for the left-hander who was picked today to play on his home ground.
Over 43: Pollard 0-2-0-1b-0-1 223-4 - There's a lengthy delay in proceedings when wicketkeeper Thomas takes a blow to his thumb, leaving him lying on the turf in agony. While he gets treatment Yuvraj flops down to the floor and has a wet towel thrown over his head by the 12th man. When it comes time to get proceedings back underway he seems to struggle to get up, though he tells umpire Taufel that he's going to carry on.
Over 42: Bishoo 0-1-1-W-0-1 219-4 - WICKET! - Dhoni departs, stumped by a mile as he looked to heave Bishoo somewhere towards Bangalore. That was old-style Dhoni, a glance back to the days when he used to have long hair and no added responsibilities to worry about. His departure for 22 gives Suresh Raina the chance to have a bat - he's off the mark with a single from the final ball of the over, as Bishoo finishes with decent figures of 1-48 from his 10. The average total for teams batting first in day-night matches is 260 - India should clear that by a distance.
Over 41: Pollard 0-0-1-2-1-0 215-3 - After two dot balls, including a loud, solo appeal from Pollard for a catch behind the stumps when the ball was nowhere near the bat, Yuvraj pushes a single down the ground to reach his 13th ODI ton, although it is his first in 35 innings. It's also his third against the West Indies.
Over 40: Bishoo 1-0-0-1-0-1 212-3 - Yuvraj moves to 99 with a single down the ground from the final ball of the Bishoo over. Still no sign of a powerplay being taken - I think that collapse against South Africa has scarred India a little.
Over 39: Pollard 4-1-0-1-0 209-3 - THWACK! That shovelled boundary over mid-wicket by Dhoni deserved a retro Batman-style explanation. He took a step or two down the wicket to Pollard and then just belted the medium-pacer away. Up until that point the India skipper had been quite sedate, just pushing the ball around for ones and twos. Another finish to an over means another chance for Yuvraj to take on board some fluids - you'd reckon India might have to do without him later on in the field.
Over 38: Bishoo 0-1-1-1-1-4 203-3 - Yuvraj spoils a good over from Bishoo with a delicate sweep past short fine leg - that's exactly the same shot he played against the leg-spinner to reach his 50 earlier in the day. Still, I rather like what I've seen from Bishoo in this tournament. Had it not been for an injury to Dwayne Bravo (who is a huge loss to the Windies) and Marlon Samuels' decision to turn down the offer of replacing Bravo, he'd have never been called up.
Over 37: Pollard 0-1-0-0-0-2 195-3 - Sarwan does superbly to cut off a Dhoni cut shot well in front of square. Yuvraj would have loved to have seen that ball reach the rope, rather than running a quick two, because he's really struggling, again he's down close to the ground and if he wasn't closing in on a century, you wonder if he'd still be batting right now in his current condition.
Over 36: Bishoo 1-0-1-0-1-1 192-3 - Bishoo helps peg back the ever-rising run-rate by giving away just four singles in his first over back into the attack. The young leggie has found life a little tougher today than he did on his World Cup debut against England (who played him particularly poorly). So far he's got figures of 0-34 from seven overs.
Over 35: Pollard 0-4-1-1-1-1 188-3 - Yuvraj times the pants off a square cut, whipping his wrists through the ball to get it past the desperate dive of Russell running around from a wide third man position. Four singles also come from the over as India tick along nicely - now when should they take that powerplay? Against South Africa it proved their undoing, but they shouldn't put them off being proactive here today.
Over 34: Russell 1-1-0-1-1-0 180-3 - Russell tries his cheeky trick of appearing to stop in his run-up...but umpire Taufel is having none of it. After Dhoni pulls away just before the point of delivery, the Australian official has a little word with the West Indies all-rounder. Time for a ball change and also a switch in the attack - Pollard takes over from Rampaul, who has taken all three wickets to fall in his first match of the tournament. He could well have bowled his way into the team for the quarter-finals.
Over 33: Rampaul 0-W-1-1-0-1 176-3 - WICKET! - The Windies get a much-needed breakthrough when Rampaul gets some reverse swing to beat Kohli's attempts to swing the ball to leg. Kohli departs for 59 from 76 deliveries but if the West Indies think things are going to get easier now, here is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The India skipper is allowed to easy singles to long-on to get going.
Over 32: Russell 0w-1-0-2-1-1-2 173-2 - And the runs continue to flow - eight coming of this one without a risk being taken. The run-rate has now vaulted up well beyond five-an-over but Yuvraj is still struggling badly. He's down on one knee (not to propose) as the conditions contine to cause him problems.
Over 31: Rampaul 1-1-0-1-1-1 165-2 - Rampaul's drafted back into the attack having performed superbly with the new ball. His seventh over of the day leaks five singles and with a ball change and a powerplay to come, India must be looking for 300+. Mind you, they thought the same against South Africa, and look what happened there!
Over 30: Russell 1-0w-1-0-1-1-0 160-2 - A gold star goes to Taz for sending in an e-mail: "Although Sachin's gone, India are looking comfortable for a good score. Yuvraj and kohli are putting on a good show but they have stay calm and not rush into slogging every ball," he says. Yuvraj is looking far from comfortable right now - he's in need of some help from the physio after being sick. The heat and humidity may be the only thing that can slow him down.
Over 29: Pollard 1-4-0-1-0-1 155-2 - Kohli - who has been something of a silent partner in this stand in recent overs - reaches his half-century with a lovely lofted flick over mid-wicket for his fifth boundary of the day. This is his 13th 50 in one-day cricket - he also has five centuries already to his name. That four also saw the alliance for the third wicket go into three figures - these are worrying times for the West Indies...
Over 28: Benn 4-4-0-1-1-1 148-2 - Benn comes back on for a second spell and starts with a long hop to Yuvraj, who doesn't miss out with a cut shot. The next delivery is tossed up and ends up being driven away through extra cover where there is an unexplicably huge gap. Having gone for eight in a hurry, Benn decides to have a go around the wicket to the left-hander, with his first ball seeing Yuvraj miss an attempted slog-sweep. Still, with singles coming from the last three balls, it's 11 from the over.
Over 27: Pollard 0-0-0-2-0-1 137-2 - Yuvraj nearly gets a leading edge to cover and then has a rather wild drive looking to hit down the ground, resulting in a sliced shot out to deep extra cover for a couple of runs. Does he not fancy a hundred here? It seems he's here for a good time not a long time now, though he's still counting quite nicely - again he nicks the strike with a single off the final delivery of the over.
Over 26: Bishoo 4-4-2-0-0-1 134-2 - The first really bad ball from Bishoo gives Yuvraj a low full toss to hammer away over mid-wicket with absolute ease. The next ball is much flatter and quicker, but the left-hander counters that with a delicate sweep that gets him four more, bringing up his half-century. It's his 49th ODI 50 and fourth already of this World Cup. A single off the last ball of the over means Yuvraj keeps the strike.
Over 25: Poillard 1-4-0-0-0-0 123-2 - Ahhh, lovely touch play from Kohli as he waits and waits for a Pollard delivery before steering it down past the short third man for four. A little bit of late movement worked perfectly in his favour as he opened the face to run the ball down fine. However, the bowler pegs things back with four dot balls.
Over 24: Bishoo 1-0-2-0-1-0 118-2 - Yuvraj nearly chips a catch up to mid-wicket - some of the pace seems to be going a little out of this pitch and being seriously quick at the start of play.
Over 23: Pollard 1-0-1-1-1-0 114-2 - You get the feeling Pollard could be seriously slippery if he bent his back, but that bowling is just something he does to kill time before he gets to bat. After giving up four singles he makes more effort with the final delivery of his first over, getting it to lift past Yuvraj's outside edge. Remember I'm not typing this for my own benefit - Rob.Lancaster@bskyb.com is the e-mail address.
Over 22: Bishoo 1-0-0-4-1-0 110-2 - Yuvraj seems to have decided it's time to move through the gears, following up his six off Sammy with a powerfully swept four against the leg spin of Bishoo. This pair have now put on 59 for the third wicket as Pollard is called into the attack for the first time today.
Over 21: Sammy 0-0-1-6-0-0 104-2 - Yuvraj takes India past 100 in stylish fashion, taking on a full delivery from Sammy and smashing it a long, long way over the rope for the first maximum of the match. Sammy's response is to finish the over with a good bouncer that forces the left-hander to take evasive action at the last second.
Over 20: Bishoo 1-0-0-1-0-0 97-2 - More good work from Bishoo in an over that actually sees him sneak one delivery - looked like it could be the googly - past the outside edge of Yuvraj's blade. India are ticking along at 4.85 an over - six-an-over from here on and they'd get to 277.
Over 19: Sammy 1-1-0-0-1-1 95-2 - And here comes the quiet bit in a 50-over match. India are happy to coast along with singles right now and the West Indies are not worried at giving away ones. Yuvraj drives superbly down the ground to the last ball of the over, but with a man in the deep it's only worth one. That was the type of shot on the walk the rest of us could only dream of playing.
Over 18: Bishoo 0-0-0-1-0-1 91-2 - What a test for Bishoo - he's bowling on the sub-continent to India in a World Cup clash. It's noticable that he's willing to give the ball much more air to Kohli, whereas Yuvraj gets it fired in flatter to prevent him from going down the ground.
Over 17: Sammy 0-1-1-0-0-1 89-2 - Kirk Edwards produces a fine diving stop to his left off the first ball of the over, only to then let Yuvraj get a single when he completely misses the ball going to his right. A single off the final ball makes it three from the final over before DRINKS.
Over 16: Bishoo 0-0-0-1-0-4 86-2 - Another example of the speed of this outfield when nothing more than a thick edge from Kohli still gets all the way to the rope. The boundary off the last ball ruined an otherwise excellent opening over from Bishoo, who - along with Russell - looks a real prospect for the Windies.
Over 15: Sammy 2-0-1-4-0-1 81-2 - Yuvraj only gets a bottom edge on a pull shot but this outfield is so fast (and his piece of willow is so good) that the ball still manages to reach the fence at mid-wicket. Thats the end of the bowling powerplay; West Indies are going to bring on young leggie Devendra Bishoo.
Over 14: Russell 1lb-1-1-0-0-0 73-2 - Russell is now through four overs at a cost of just 14 runs - he was expensive against England on Thursday but did pick up four wickets. India and West Indies have met six times in the history of the World Cup, with each side winning three apiece. The last meeting was back in 1996 and India won on that day.
Over 13: Sammy 0-1-2-0-0-0 70-2 - It's proving to be a case of Yuvraj v Sammy so far, with the batsman getting the better of the battle. He tries to work the final ball of the 13th over into the leg side but only gets a thick outside edge back towards the bowler, with Sammy unable to get near the chance as it came back high above his head.
Over 12: Russell 1-4-1-0-1-2 67-2 - Russell pays the price for bowling too full and too wide, Yuvraj simply leaning forward and timing a drive superbly through extra cover for another boundary. DROPPED! The bowler should have had his revenge from the final delivery of the over when Yuvraj rather lazily steers a short delivery towards backward point. Skipper Sammy had enough time to get across with a dive to get two hands on the chance, but is unable to cling on. The captain's repsonse to his miss? Bring himself into the bowling attack in place of Rampaul.
Over 11: Rampaul 1-0-4-0-0-0 58-2 - Rampaul's first delivery to Yuvraj is a bouncer that the batsman goes after - he only manages to make contact with fresh air, though. The next one is also on the short side from Ravi, but this time the left-hander is waiting on the back foot and hammers it away in the air well wide of a diving mid-wicket. Now that's a rather impressive way to get off the mark!
Over 10: Russell 0-0-0-0-0-0 53-2 - Yuvraj isn't given much pitched up as Russell uses the conditions to keep the left-hander pegged back in the crease in an impressive maiden. We may well have the tallest first slip of the World Cup today, as Sulieman Benn has found himself in the catching position in the absence of Chris Gayle. West Indies are going straight into the bowling powerplay.
Over 9: Rampaul 0-0-W-0-2-0 53-2 - WICKET! - Rampaul has another! He's removed both openers now as backing away to leg, Gambhir cuts a short ball straight into the welcoming hands of Russell down at third man. The India batsman simply never looked comfortable against the rising ball today and he gets a long, hard stare from the bowler when he's dismissed. Yuvraj Singh is the new man at the crease but because the batsmen crossed while the ball was in the air, he's forced to wait to face his first delivery.
Over 8: Russell 0-1-1-1-0-4b 51-1 - All-rounder Andre Russell replaces Benn - can he do to India what he did to England at this ground on Thursday? India's half-century comes up from the final ball of Russell's first over when a lively bouncer bursts through wicketkeeper Thomas' gloves and runs away for four byes. This stadium in Chennai is a picture when full; the new-look stands are built with gaps in between to allow the breeze to drift through the ground.
Over 7: Rampaul 0-1-0-0-4-0 43-1 - Gambhir manages to beat the dive of the sizeable Pollard at backward point to get a drive off the back foot away for four more. He'd unsuccessfully given Rampaul the charge the ball before, a move the bowler did not take too kindly to. I suggest, judging from the air he's gulping in as he makes his way back to his marker, the Windies bowler should save his energy for getting the ball down the other end at a decent pace.
Over 6: Benn 1-0-0-4-4-1 38-1 - Having been beaten trying to play the cut shot, Kohli shows he's not afraid to keep going for his shots when he twice drives over-pitched deliveries from Benn to the cover fence for back-to-back boundaries. It would have been three-from-three but he strikes a backfoot drive too close to point, who makes a decent diving stop to save his side three runs.
Over 5: Rampaul 1-0-0-0-4-1 28-1 - Where's the second slip? Had one been in place, Rampaul would have removed Gambhir - instead the batsman gets a streaky four down to the third man fence. The left-handed opener is not looking comfortable against the pace and bounce, fencing at deliveries whilst his feet are stuck in the crease. A single off the last means he nicks the stike from Kohli.
Over 4: Benn 0-1-0-0-4-0 22-1 - Benn pays the price for dropping short to Gambhir, who cuts away backward of point for a boundary that breathes life back into this capacity crowd. I forgot to mention earlier - if you want to have your say on the action today, or the possible quarter-final match-ups, fire in an e-mail to Rob.Lancaster@bskyb.com. All will be gratefully received.
Over 3: Rampaul 0-1-1-0-1-0 17-1 - It's all gone quiet over here. That wicket of Tendulkar in the opening over has sucked the life out of the crowd. Impressive amount of bounce in this surface, making it a shame that Roach isn't available today due to illness. Rampaul manages to keep India's pair in check with just three singles conceded in his second over.
Over 2: Benn 1-0-0-1-0-4 14-1 - Sulieman Benn is continuing to open the bowling for the West Indies. It's a relatively tight first over, with both Gambhir and new man Virat Kohli picking up easy singles before the former launches the final ball over mid-wicket for a boundary. Watching that replay of Tendulkar's dismissal again shows that the umpire was actually saying 'not out' - it was the batsman who walked off knowing he'd got a thin edge, rather than the ball hitting his glove as I'd first thought.
Over 1: Rampaul 4w-0-0-1-2-0-W 8-1 - WICKET! - Ravi Rampaul is desperate to impress, perhaps a little too desperate as the first ball is a bouncer that goes over both the batsman and the wicketkeeper for five wides. Ooops. Gambhir pushes a single to get off the mark, putting Tendulkar on strike for the first time. His first ball is tucked away for two backward of square but then the crowd are stunned into silence when The Little Master is removed. Rampaul gets one to lift and straighten a touch, taking Tendulkar on the glove and going through to Thomas.
Openers Tendulkar and Gambhir head out to the middle to a huge roar as the volume is turned right up in Chennai...are we going to see history today with Sachin's 100th international ton?
Scenario While all eight teams competing in the quarter-finals are already known, this game will decide who plays who and where. An India win would set up a mouth-watering clash between themselves and India in the last eight, while West Indies would take on Pakistan, England would have to face Sri Lanka in Colombo and New Zealand and South Africa would do battle in Mirpur. If Windies win, however, India instead face Sri Lanka and the men from the Caribbean would take on Australia, leaving England up against Group A winners Pakistan. Geddit? Clear as mud!
Teams Sadly for the neutrals, we will not be getting to witness Virender Sehwag coming out to open India's innings shortly. With concerns over his fitness Sehwag's taking a break, Suresh Raina comes into the team. There's also a belated chance for spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who replaces Ashish Nehra. As for the Windies? No Gayle and no Roach - what a shame. Kirk Edwards and Ravi Rampaul replace the key duo. Still no place for Shiv Chanderpaul though.
Toss Darren Sammy's miserable record at the toss continues - I believe thats now 0 for 6 for the West Indies skipper in this tournament when India's Mahendra Singh Dhoni gets to select what to do first in this Group B encounter. No shocks to here the India captain say his side are going to bat first.
Hello and welcome to over-by-over coverage of the last (yes, we have finally got there) match of the group stages in this World Cup. And it's not a bad one to finish either, as co-hosts India take on West Indies in Chennai.
