  • Right then! That ends a totally one-sided Test match. Not sure we were expecting anything different but we were HOPING for a contest. Will we see anything different in the second Test? Join us on Friday, October 12, 2018 in Hyderabad from 9.30 am local (0400 GMT). Till then you can catch some more one-sided stuff in the SA-Zim series and 'hope' for a contest in the Pak-Aus clash. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • PRITHVI SHAW HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH for his fantastic century. Says that he is more happy for the team and is happier that his contribution could come in the cause. Says that there is no change in the preparation - whether one plays First Class Cricket or Test cricket. Hopes to continue doing his stuff.
  • Victorious Indian captain Virat Kohli says that one cannot compare the conditions in England and here. Is honest enough to admit that with India's quality, they are expected to be dominating at home, purely because they have done that so many times in the past. Dodges the question about Windies' surrender and says that his team's focus is to be consistent and they did that. Stresses further that it was a clinical performance and is delighted for Shaw and Jadeja. Praises the 18-year old for grabbing the opportunity with both hands. Also says that the declaration was delayed purely because the team wanted the all-rounder to reach his century. On the seam bowling, Virat says that both the quicks were very good, on a track which had nothing for fast bowlers. Adds further that the spinners have always been good on such surfaces any which ways. Informs that the reason for going in with 5 main bowlers was to rotate the players in the heat. Smiles on being informed that India's over-rate was close to 17 an hour and puts it down to the new rules which do not allow flexibility in drinking water. Also says that India were never bothered with the over rate as they have plenty of spinners in their ranks who finish off their overs quickly.
  • Windies captain Kraigg Brathwaite credits India for showing how to master Test cricket. On being asked about the margin of defeat, Kraigg puts it down to batting issues with no partnerships being strung. Feels that had they got 2 or 3 big stands, they would have done well. On being asked about Jason Holder's fitness, Brathwaite says that he is not sure and they will have to assess in the next couple of days.
  • That was NOT the presentation. It is coming up now...
  • Kuldeep says that sometimes it takes a little bit of time to take wickets and in the second innings, he was rewarded for his patience. On his liking for the types of balls, Yadav goes the opposite. Says he likes Kookaburra and is not so happy with the SG. On his ploy to come around the wicket, the chinaman says that they discussed it in the dressing room and he was asked to try changing the angle and it worked.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin is giving an interview to Sanjay Manjrekar, along with Kuldeep Yadav. The offie says that he was bowling really well before injury and only wanted to get that rhythm back. Admits that he was nervous yesterday but once he bowled a couple of overs, he got confident. On the difference between the types of balls in England and India, Ashwin says that there is a massive factor in terms of gripping and movement. On his preference, he says that he loves holding the Dukes ball but is disappointed with Kookaburra. Is okay with the SG. On being asked about Windies' surrender, Ashwin does not admit on the upfront but then eventually says that he is shocked more than surprised to see so many shots being played in a Test match.
  • This Test match result cannot come in any better manner for the Indian side. They have just come from a gruelling Test series in England with the batsmen not making runs and the spinners struggling. Back home, both the negatives have been converted into positives and all of a sudden, the mindset is double positive, which will not do them any harm before their tour to Australia.
  • After being asked to bat again, perhaps one might have expected to see some fight from the Windies. There was a bit - with Kieran Powell really playing well. But once he got out, the procession was fuelled. What was surprising was the amount of shots played in the second innings. As many as 7 sixes were hit, with the batsmen clearly trying to hit the spinners off their lengths. But they were just trying it way too often and paid the price.
  • Now about India's bowling because there is nothing much to talk about their opponents' batting. Test match is a test of patience but they were hardly tested. Shami struck early with the new ball in the first innings and then Ashwin got 4 more because of his guile than the pitch.
  • It could not have started better for the visiting side. Coming on Indian soil, then striking in the first over. But after that, it just got pear-shaped. Prithvi Shaw's attack put them on the defensive and they simply could not get going. Keemo Paul breaking down before Lunch on Thursday did not help matters either and as a result, they saw 3 centurions, a 90-odd and an 80-odd. Bishoo did get a 4-fer but was not that threatening.
  • The players shake hands but Jason Holder just sits there in the Windies' dressing room, totally flummoxed. Was this a pitch which seemed like a minefield? Or was it all in the mind? Perhaps the latter.
  • 50.5OUT! That ends the Test match. Thank you for watching. India have earned their BIGGEST EVER WIN IN TEST CRICKET, in terms of runs. Full and on middle, Gabriel tries to repeat what he did on the third ball but this time there is a man near the ropes. Kuldeep Yadav is the man at the fence and he takes a decent catch. INDIA WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 272 RUNS!
  • 50.4Slower ball around middle, pushed to the off side.
  • 50.3FOUR! There you go. Tossed up and there she goes. Gabriel blasts it over mid on.
  • 50.2A touch shorter than full, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 50.1Full and around off, pushed towards cover.
  • Right then. Jaddu vs Shannon...
  • 49.6Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 192/9
  • 49.5Outside off, a play and a miss.
  • 49.4The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 49.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 49.2The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 49.1DROPPED! That was a sitter. Full and outside off, Dowrich lunges to defend but the ball spins in, takes the inside edge and flies straight to Prithvi Shaw at short leg. However, he is perhaps too eager to take the winning catch and fumbles.
  • Shannon Gabriel is the last man in. How long is this match gonna last?
  • 48.6OUT! Dead plumb. The strength of Jadeja is that he keeps his line straight. This is pitched around leg and Lewis attempts a wild slog. However, he misses as the ball spins away and is hit on the pad. Jadeja appeals and up goes the finger. Lewis does not even bother reviewing. 192/9
  • 48.5Driven towards the mid off region. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 48.4Full and outside off, watchfully blocked out.
  • 48.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 48.2Short and outside off, cut straight to point.
  • 48.1Full and outside off, pushed to the off side.
  • 47.6Another forward defense. 191/8
  • 47.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 47.4Full and just around off, watchfully defended.
  • 47.3Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.

  • 46.5Very full, pushed to the off side.
  • 46.4Full and around off, watchfully kept out.
  • 46.3The batsman works it down the leg side. They pick up a single.
  • 46.2Short and in line of the stumps, Dowrich looks to punch but mistimes it back to the bowler.
  • 46.1Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
  • 45.6Covers his stump and Lewis survives the over. 189/8
  • 45.5FOUR! Carrom ball gone wrong and Lewis gets his boundary. Short ball on off, Lewis pulls it through square leg to the fence.
  • 45.4SL has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 45.3Around off, Lewis blocks.
  • 45.2Lewis fails to get bat on that one and is hit on the pad.
  • 45.1Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin will bowl from the other end.
  • 44.6Slower ball on off, Dowrich plants his foot forward and sees it off. 185/8
  • 44.5The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 44.4Short ball outside off, cut past point but does not run.
  • 44.3Full this time around off, bunted down.
  • 44.2Loopy ball on middle again, played with a straight bat.
  • 44.1Short ball in line of the stumps, nicely blocked by Dowrich.
  • We are back for the final session of the day. Perhaps, what should be the final session of the match. Shane Dowrich and Sherman Lewis stride out to face the Indian spinners. Ravindra Jadeja will bowl the first over post Tea.
  • ... Day 3, Session 3 ...
  • Just a mere formality left in this game now. Don't expect the Windies to try and block to delay the inevitable. Stay tuned... in case it becomes a you-blink-and-miss final session of the match.
  • India were happy with the way their opposition were playing. Just keep looping the ball, be prepared to get hit for a few boundaries and then get wickets on a platter. Shami and Umesh have bowled just 6 overs, happy to just field the ball while the spin trio has taken 8/152 in 38 overs combined.
  • This was expected but not at such a high strike rate. The Windies are not known to be great players of spin and hence they collapsed in the first innings. Perhaps coach Stuart Law instructed them to play their shots in the second innings. The start was decent - 79/1 at one stage but then as they say, if the batsmen lived by the sword, they died by it as well.
  • Sorry state of affairs. We are about to witness a 3-day Test. 12 wickets have fallen in 2 sessions today - to be more precise, in just 63 overs. That is almost a wicket every 5 overs. 11 of those have been to spin.
  • 43.6OUT! Fantastic review from Pant and India! Windies are 8 down. The Indians are all smiles. Especially Ashwin. The keeper was the only person confident while the others were just joining in. Coming to the ball, it is down the leg side and Bishoo looks to sweep it fine. However, he misses. Now, Pant hears something and instantly appeals. For a second, I realize that age is catching up with me and my hearing senses are getting numb. But to my relief, none of my colleagues heard any sound either. But India put in a huge appeal while umpire Ian Gould shakes his head. Pant immediately urges Kohli to go for the review and his captain promptly agrees. Snickometer shows it in the first go. Terrific review though... wonder how come the others did not hear the noise? That includes me too. Anyways... TEA HAS BEEN TAKEN ON DAY 3. 185/8
  • HOWZZAT? HOWZZAT? HOWZZAT? Pant reckons that he has Bishoo caught behind. India have reviewed it.
  • 43.5Full again, watchfully defended.
  • 43.4The batsman failed to make contact and was hit low on the pads.
  • 43.3Full and around off, watchfully defended.
  • 43.2FOUR! A rare bad ball. Down the leg side, Bishoo helps it to the fine leg fence.
  • 43.1Around off, patted back to the bowler.
  • 42.6Outside off, left alone. 181/7
  • 42.5Down the leg side, tickled fine for a couple.
  • 42.4The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 42.3Full and outside off, swept towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 42.2The batsman has been struck on the thigh pad.
  • 42.1Down the leg side, Dowrich misses his tickle and Pant, being blinded, misses and concedes a bye.
  • 41.6The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 177/7
  • 41.5The carrom ball, but Bishoo reads it well. Plays it with soft hands and the outside edge does not carry to Rahane at first slip.
  • 41.4Full and outside off, Dowrich looks to defend but gets an outside edge which goes past point. A single taken.
  • 41.3Outside off, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 41.2The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 41.1Full and around off, worked towards mid-wicket.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin is back.
  • 40.6The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 176/7
  • 40.5FOUR! BRILLIANT! Full and outside off, Bishoo drives it past the bowler and beats mid off!
  • Devendra Bishoo walks in for the second time in the day.
  • 40.4OUT! Another gift of a wicket. That Sunday holiday seems to be more inviting to the Windies than us. Tossed up outside off, Paul looks to add to the tally of the sixes of his team. But there is a man placed at long off. Straight to Umesh Yadav. Sigh. Really pitiable.
  • 40.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 40.2Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 40.1Full and around off, defended in front of short leg.

  • 39.3Around off, blocked from the crease.
  • 39.2Full again, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 39.1Full and outside off, Dowrich looks to drive but the ball goes off the inner half towards mid-wicket.
  • 38.6Comes forward and blocks. 172/6
  • 38.5The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 38.4Quicker one, outside off, Keemo pokes but misses. Pant fumbles, then collects and then appeals. Umpire Nigel Llong is clear in saying NO.
  • 38.3Full and outside off, Paul looks to drive but misses. An appeal is made for the catch but turned down.
  • 38.2FOUR! The shots keep coming... Full and outside off, Paul clobbers it over mid-wicket for another boundary.
  • 38.1On middle and off, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 37.6The batsman drives the ball straight down the ground. 168/6
  • 37.5Full and outside off, driven towards the bowler.
  • 37.4MISHIT, BUT FOUR! Full and outside off, Dowrich goes through with his shot again but this time, the ball spins in. Goes off the inner half and evades mid on.
  • 37.3Punched off the back foot by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • 37.2SIX! SMASH! Number 7 in this innings. Full and outside off, Paul goes downtown and sends this into orbit. Over long on.
  • 37.1Short and outside off, Paul looks to cut but the ball sticks on the surface. As a result, he mistimes it to the bowler.
  • 36.6Outside off, extra lift, Shane pokes but misses. 157/6
  • 36.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.

  • 35.6The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. 155/6
  • 35.5FOUR! Full and outside off, Paul gets down and sweeps it through mid-wicket for a boundary! He has been doing that all morning.
  • Keemo Paul is the new man in at number 8. Given the way he batted this morning, one could either see the score rocket skywards till he is there. On the flip side, the seventh wicket might not be far away either.
  • 35.4OUT! Edged and taken! MAIDEN TEST FIFER FOR KULDEEP! Number 6 is down and this one is of the set batsman - Powell. A beautiful ball. After the long hop on the previous ball, Kuldeep bowls this much fuller and the line is on the stumps. Kieran presses forward to defend but the ball spins away and goes straight off the face of the bat. Where? To the debutant standing at silly point. Prithvi Shaw is alert and takes it well. Fine knock from Powell, deserved a century.
  • 35.3FOUR! Short and wide outside off, slapped through the covers for a boundary. 150 COMES UP FOR WINDIES, but at the cost of 5 wickets. Still 317 behind.
  • 35.2Way too short, but stays low. Dowrich looks to pull but because of the low bounce, mistimes it towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 35.1Pitched outside off, helped towards square leg.
  • 34.6The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 146/5
  • 34.5Outside off, left alone.
  • 34.4Confusion, mix-up, but safe. Full and outside off, Kieran pushes it through the covers and sets off for a single. Is halfway down the track but is sent back. Luckily the call is made just in time.
  • 34.3Comes down the track but is not to the pitch of the ball. Looks to defend but misses and is hit on the pads.
  • 34.2A touch short, on the pads, helped behind square leg for a run.
  • 34.1Full and outside off, pushed towards covers with soft hands for a single.
  • 33.6Full and outside off, flicked towards square leg. 144/5

  • 29.5Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
  • 29.4The batsman has pushed it to the cover region.
  • Shane Dowrich is the next man in.
  • 29.3OUT! Half the side down. Seems like someone has told them to get these runs today itself. Another loose shot. Full and outside off, Chase leans to drive but does not bother to keep it down. Lady Luck does not bother to keep him on the field. Straightforward catch to Ashwin at cover. Kuldeep cannot control his laughter. This is silly cricket.
  • 29.2FOUR! Poor, poor ball from Yadav and gets punished. Short ball on middle and leg, Chase rocks back and pulls this through square leg for a boundary. Shaw was lucky as he ducks at short leg to evade the ball.
  • 29.1Uses his feet and works this along the turf for a run.
  • Kuldeep Yadav too gets a change of ends.
  • 28.6FOUR! Nothing new from the Windies. They are playing their shots. Picks up the loopy ball and lofts this over mid-wicket for a one-bounce boundary. 133/4

  • 26.6The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 121/4
  • 26.5Lazy from Rahul. Full and down the leg side, Chase just about gets it on the bounce to Lokesh Rahul at leg gully who is lazy to get up and allows the ball through. A couple taken.

  • 26.3The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.

  • 25.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.

  • 24.5Full and outside off, driven back to the bowler.

  • Roston Chase is the new man in.
  • 22.4OUT! Stumped! Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear. What on earth is happening? Poor Windies. This bloke has faced just 2 balls and he is jumped out on his third. Not even to the pitch of the ball. Misses. Pant doesn't. Ambris tries to go back but he is heading back to the dressing room instead. Pant is way too quick. He might have struggled to take catches but stumpings have been brilliant.
  • 22.3Ambris has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 22.2Played to mid-wicket region by the batsman.
  • Sunil Ambris walks out next to bat.
  • 22.1OUT! Another one bites the dust. The Windies are wasting the decent start. They were 79/1 and now find themselves 97/3. They are playing positive cricket but are losing wickets. Kuldeep tosses this one on middle and leg, Hetmyer looks to goes on side but gets gets a leading edge towards point where Rahul takes a good low catch.

  • 20.1Full and in line of the stumps, hit back to the bowler.
  • 19.6The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 88/2

  • 19.4Driven towards the mid on region.
  • 19.3Goes aerial but does not get the desired result. Closes the bat face early as the ball goes over cover-point. The batsmen have picked up a couple of runs.

  • 19.1The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. The batsmen have run through for a single.

  • 17.4SIX! SHOT! Picks it up early and lofts this over mid on for a biggie. Loopy ball on middle and leg, Shai comes down and smokes this over the fence. The partnership moves to 44 now and they and really looking positive.
  • 17.3Four Byes! Misses his line. Ashwin gives this one air down the leg side. Hope goes for the sweep but fails to make contact. Pant cannot get to his left quickly and the ball rolls to the fine leg fence.

  • ... Day 3, Session 2 ...
  • Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the bowlers for the hosts taking 4 wickets. He also provided the breakthrough for them in their second innings. The Windies have capable batsmen in their ranks but need to apply themselves. A tough task ahead for them as the Indians are getting the ball to turn. Will the match end today itself? We shall wait and watch. Join us for the second session at 1210 local (0640 GMT).
  • Keemo Paul and Roston Chase came out this morning and took the attack to the Indians. They played attacking cricket and made Kohli think. Especially, Keemo Paul. Chase got to his 50 but his partner missed out. India knew they were just one wicket away and Umesh broke the partnership. The tail followed suit.
  • Another session won by the Indians. They have dominated the pie chart and will look to do so in the whole Test. They bowled the Windies out today and got them to follow on as well and with a wicket down, they will look to end the Test today itself.
