48.5Paul to Jadeja

1NB
Drama at the end! Safely in but India would not have cared as it is a no ball. India win by 4 wickets. On the pads, Jadeja flicks it towards mid-wicket and takes a quick single. The fielder scores a direct hit at the keeper's end. The umpire takes it upstairs but he has also signaled a no ball as Keemo Paul overstepped. The umpire still checks upstairs and replays show Thakur was in but unsure how it would have mattered. Nonetheless, INDIA WIN THE MATCH AND THE SERIES 2-1.

Not Out! Shardul is safely in. Full outside off, Jadeja hits it straight to mid off. Shardul comes out for a single but Jadeja sends him back. Shardul turns and tries to go back but he slips.

EDGED AND SIX! Bouncer around the body, Thakur looks to pull but gets a top edge. The ball flies and it goes over the square leg fence for a biggie. Jadeja applauds his partner, the dressing room is going wild and the crowd is going bonkers.

47.1Cottrell to Jadeja

46.1Paul to Kohli

W
OUT! Chopped on! Is this the turning point in this game? Stunned silence in the ground as the skipper walks back 15 short of his century. Keemo Paul strikes on the first ball of his comeback over. The ray of hope, West Indies were looking for. Kohli cannot believe what has happened. Full outside off, Kohli looks to drive away from the body. The ball takes the inside edge and goes on to disturb the stumps. India into the bowlers now. 30 needed in 23, can West Indies pull off a miracle?

BOUNCER! It is bowled around off, Jadeja sways away from it. The umpire signals it one for the over. It should have been as it was way over Jadeja's head.

44.6Holder to Jadeja

FOUR! Smartly played. Shorter outside off, Kohli waits for it and then plays the late cut fine of the man at third man. Roston gives it a chase from third man and he puts in a dive as well but comes second best.
