Man of the Match: Darren Sammy

West Indies pull off the victory and level the series 1-1. They got off to a poor start when they lost Charles and Samuels early. But Darren Bravo and Powell steadied the innings and added 100 runs for the third wicket. Both got to their fifties before throwing it away. Simmons was joined by Sammy with whom he added 82 runs for the sixth wicket. Simmons had a reprieve on 43, when Yuvraj dropped a simple catch. He then went on to score a fifty and became one of the four batsmen to do so. But it was their Test skipper, who kept his cool and took them home.

Previously West Indies have won the toss and chose to field. A decent effort in the end from India. They looked good for more when Kohli was going all guns blazing. He looked set to create history by scoring three consecutive tons on this ground, it was not to be though as Rampaul sent him packing for 99. Rohit Sharma fell early and Dhawan promised more than just 35. Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina disappointed yet again, and it was left to skipper MS Dhoni to lift India to a challenging score. 'Captain Cool' did his job and India will be pretty happy with their final tally. Ravi Rampaul was the best bowler on display, although his figures were damaged right at the end. Narine started poorly but pulled it back with an excellent spell during the batting PP.
