West Indies collapsed to 152 for eight on the third day of the first Test against India. Darren Sammy was the first to go as his stumps were knocked off with a ball that nipped back in to him off Mohammed Shami. The pacer playing on his home ground bagged one more wicket with a similar delivery to dismiss Shane Shillingford for a second-ball duck.

The slide didn’t stop there, the next ball Shami’s full-length ball hit the Veerasammy Permaul on the foot. A loud appeal ensued but Umpire Richard Kettleborough was unmoved. However, MS Dhoni behind the wickets was sharp enough to throw the ball on the stumps and replays showed the batsman was short of his crease.

The visitors are facing an innings defeat, while Shami is on the verge of bagging the second-best bowling performance by an Indian on debut.
