    Fifty for Hope. Shai Hope gets to his half-century off 64 balls, slightly at a slower rate than his partner but West Indies won’t mind this one bit. The Indian spinners are struggling and with the dew settling in, it’s getting harder to grip the ball. West Indies are 195 for 3 in 29 overs and the partnership between Hetmyer and Hope is going strong at 117 off 102 balls.

    FIFTY for Hetmyer off 42 balls. This has been a wonderful exhibition of hitting from the young 21-year-old Shimron Hatmyer. He tonks Yuzvendra Chahal for a massive six to bring up his third half-century. West Indies require 166 with seven wickets in hand and the rate at which they are scoring, they are very much in with a chance. Hetmyer has five sixes and is yet to hit a boundary in this innings.

    GOT HIM: West Indies three down for 78. That’s a second wicket for Kuldeep. It’s the wrong ‘ un again that gets the better of the batsman. Marlon Samuels this time, who is bowled. The ball just kisses the bail on its way. The umpire wasn’t convinced but one replay is all it took to prove how spotless MS Dhoni is in his decision.

    BOWLED HIM: It takes Kuldeep Yadav three balls to leave an impact. He foxes Chandrapaul Hemraj with a wrong ‘un that crashes onto his stumps. West Indies lose their second wicket for 64.

    With six overs to go, the way Kohli switched gears was phenomenal. Shortly after he brought up his 1000th run this calendar year, making him the quickest in terms of innings (11), Kohli smoked Kemar Roach deep into the crowd at long-on. Two balls later, McCoy’s length ball was muscled into the second tier at cow corner. Then came West Indies’ quickest Roach, who was taken for a six and a four off two deliveries. Another boundary, off the last ball of the over, brought up India’s 300. The next two overs fetched India 21 runs but by then, with Kohli bringing up his fourth 150-plus score in ODIs.
