CWC 2015 LIVE - Windies Bowlers Strike Back To Make It Interesting v India

#WestIndies v #India , #WACA, #Perth

West Indies bowlers have struck baack and how?
With their backs against the proverbial wall, the seam bowlers have come hard at India and reaped dividends for their discipline, pace and bounce.

Going in with all quicks against this India batting line up on a lively pitch like #WACA seems to be have been a thought-out decision. All wickets to fall so far have been due to bounce or pace off the wicket.

First two to go were beauties in swing bowling. Pitched on the stump and swung away late taking the edges behind the stumps. #ShikharDhawan was claimed by #DarrenSammy in the second slip while #RohitSharma was caught behind by #DeneshRamdin. #JeromeTaylor the bowler on both occasions. 

Next to go was #ViratKohli trying to pull a bouncing #AndreRussell delivery and spooning a simple catch at long leg. Bounce undid him as with some of the WI top order batsmen.

#AjinkyaRahane's patient vigil at the crease was undone by a superfast delivery by #KemarRoach. The edge flew to the #wicket-keeper. Rahane reviewed the OUT decision and after several camera angles and inconclusive evidence, the third umpire decided to uphold the umpire's decision.

#SureshRaina and his inability to face the bouncing delivery was exposed yet again when he tried to slap a innocuous delivery from #DwayneSmith and edged it behind.

#Live #Cricket #Score:
India - 109 for 5 in 23.3 overs.

Skipper #MSDhoni will be India's biggest hope to drive them home from this precarious position.
He has #RavindraJadeja and the bowlers to cross the line.  The only plus for them is they dont have any run pressure so they can bide their time.

Kudos to WI for this fightback.
Yet again in this world cup, the sub 200 totals are becoming a headache for teams chasing!
Wonderful atmosphere at the #WACA. Cracking game in the offing....
