Last Night BIGGEST FIGHT Between Rohit Sharma And Bravo, He Beats Rohit Almost. Kohli Warning
The day starts with umpiring howlers – Indian team did not have greatest of the start to the day, thanks to some umpiring howlers from Nigel Llong twice in the nine overs played by Indian team on the final day. He made the first blunder in the first over of the day itself as he failed to spot an inside edge and announced a decision in favour of bowler by adjudging Rohit Sharma LBW out. There was a big inside edge that Llong failed to spot. That was not all as next time he could not watch Cummins left leg which was way outside the bowling crease. Instead, he raised his finger as Saha was caught behind. This was probably the biggest howler made by him in his career as Cummins’ foot was out by a mile and Saha was obviously not out.
Indian captain Virat Kohli too registered his protest by signalling Saha that it was a big no-ball but the decision was made and it was not possible to alter this decision now.
Cummins makes merry – Well it’s a proper fairy tale for Cummins as he made a big turnaround in this match. Who would believe that a bowler who got his first international wicket after 281 balls will scalp 9 wickets in the match? Cummins did that and not to forget the contribution of umpire in two of the wickets taken by him. Indian team started the day with 157/3 and lost 4 wickets in 9 overs they played. Cummins was the one who claimed all the 4 wickets thus increasing his wickets tally from 5 to 9 in this match. He made merry on the final day of play and narrowly missed the 10 wicket mark by just one wicket.
India declares, West Indies clumsy start – Indian team declared their innings after playing exactly 9 overs, adding 60 runs and 4 wickets to the yesterday’s total. They set up a target of 346 for the home team. West Indies team had a clumsy start to their innings as they lost two early wickets within 5 overs of the start of the final innings of the game. Mohammed Shami affected the first blow with the wicket of Leon Johnson who was caught by Rohit Sharma at short leg. Bhuvneshwar Kumar chipped in with his classical swing dismissing Kraigg Braithwaite in the form of LBW. West Indies team suffered another blow as experienced Samuels bids adieu to the batting crease after playing a loose shot. Bravo and Roston Chase were able to control the fall of wickets and West Indies team did not suffer any other blow after Samuels wicket till Lunch break.
