    86.6 138.7 kph, Don't whisper a word. The whole world will be able to hear you. Wankhede is stunned into silence. Rampaul spoils the party, Sammy holds the catch at second slip. Rampaul goes on a celebratory run. Short, not too wide, bounces rib-high, Tendulkar wants to punch, but ends up opening the face on it. Sammy takes a sharp catch at second slip. Five Tests ago he had dropped Dravid in the same position for the man to score a match-winning century. Not today. Just a sigh from Tendulkar as he walks back. A slight grimace towards the end of the walk, looks at the crowd, looks at bat. Walks off. he still has 30 more centuries than the next best 322/5

    I know, they just give up. They need to start over from 0 after making 100. Another hundred by Ashwin would have been great. Missed out poor fella.

    Wake up yo!!!!!!!!

    At the end of day 4 and it's set up interestingly for tomorrow. The West Indies lead by 189 runs and will be very happy to be in that position overnight. The question is, will they go for the win tomorrow or will the pitch make them decide against it? India will seek early wickets and if they can get them, they could have a chance at a historic last day run chase...Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin achieved a rare feat, becoming only the third Indian cricketer to score a century and take five wickets in an innings in a Test match. West Indies 590 & 81/2 (34.0 ov) vs. India 482 at the end of Day 4

    Tendulkar's dismissal was planned - Rampaul

    Can you set up Sachin Tendulkar? Apparently yes, according to Ravi Rampaul. Ottis Gibson, the West Indies coach, had a brief chat early on Friday morning with Rampaul, one half of the visitors' new-ball pair. Gibson, a former Windies fast bowler himself, sketched out a plan, asking Rampaul to keep an off stump line, pull his length back and surprise Tendulkar with the bounce. Rampaul did all that, and successfully trapped Tendulkar six short of a much-awaited century.

    "This morning while we were warming up, the coach and I were chatting about how we were going to bowl at him and out him," Rampaul said at the end of the day's play. The plan was to basically get closer to the wicket and just angle the ball away from him. He nicked it and it was a good feeling."

    Tendulkar had started off briskly, with a couple of punched drives for fours, and an upper-cut six off Fidel Edwards. The visitors opted for the second new ball first thing in the morning and Rampaul was trying to hit the seam, just short of length, keeping an off stump line in his attempt to make Tendulkar play. It took him a few overs to hit the right stride. Also he noticed that Tendulkar was playing him from out of his crease.


    Ravi Rampaul described the delivery that dismissed Sachin Tendulkar as "just the right ball at the right time" AFP
    Enlarge
    "He was batting out of his crease, trying to get the ball a little fuller so I realised that and pulled back my length. The ball before actually bounced as well. It was just the right ball at the right time," is how Rampaul described the wicket.

    Asked if he it was the best wicket in his 12-Test career, Rampaul did rank it high on his list. "It was a big moment," he said. "The atmosphere was huge and there was lot of crowd support for him. He is a big wicket."

    It did not take much time for the hate messages to float on planet Twitter, where sharp verbal darts were being thrown at the quiet man from Trinidad & Tobago. According to Rampaul, the bad vibes against him were heard even at the ground. "I got that as soon as Sachin got out. When I went back to the boundary it was not all that nice," Rampaul said about being heckled by the Mumbai fans. "That is life and that is how cricket goes. I know a lot of fans are down and heartbroken but we can't just let him go and play freely. We had our job to do, much as he had his job to do."

    Immediately after Tendulkar's departure, India suffered a double-jolt when Darren Sammy spread-eagled MS Dhoni's stumps with a fuller-length delivery, which Dhoni tried playing with poor footwork. Two wickets for nine runs, three overall before lunch, had the West Indies' spirits high. However, the inexperienced pair of Virat Kohli and R Ashwin played with resolve and their 97-run partnership for the seventh wicket helped India recover fast. Ashwin further frustrated Sammy and his troops with a fluent century.

    Rampaul insisted that the bowlers had not relaxed after Tendulkar's wicket, and instead gave credit to Kohli and Ashwin for their pluck. "They really batted well," Rampaul said. "Ashwin came out and assessed the wicket and batted according to the conditions. Kohli also did well. When the partnership was building we just tried to stick to our plans, restrict them, and hoping that they will give away their hand. The wicket is not one where you could blast out anybody or spin out anyone. You just have to stick to the basics and stick to the team plans."

    ------------------

    It would be dumb not to plan world's best batsman's dismissal when you are going out to play against him. It was Rampaul's lucky day. Tendulkar's day will come for sure and when it does everyone will Shut up!

    WOW! Ashwin with another 4! This guy's on fire! Don't remember a more impressive debut series by any other cricketer in recent memory.

    Waiting for Cabi to contradict that fact...

    India need 242 in 66 overs! I would love to see India to go for the win. They have already won the series! Take the risk and revive the game of Test Cricket!

    Bhajji's career seems over to me. Ojha is doing great as well!

    ------------------

    Sehwag starts off in usual style - boundary of 1st ball

    FH Edwards to Gambhir, FOUR, round the wicket, short of a length, angling in, steered away between slips and gully, all along the ground/. That's about the rate they need per over

    We coming with heat.

    ------------------

    If West Indies lose this Test they will have the highest first-innings score - 590 - for a losing side | http://t.co/8LX2ekLZ


    ------------------

    Spinners took the majority of wicket in this match. Ashwin - 9 wickets. Ojha - 7. They must be very happy!

    ------------------

    Edwards just bowled a 146kph bouncer to dravid!!

    ------------------

    consecutive fours by sehwag!!

    ------------------

    rampaul bowls sehwag a bouncer now. Sehwag ask for a wide from the umpire. LOL

    ------------------

    Sehwag is one lucky fella!!

    ------------------

    sehwag gets another 2 bouncers. LOL He again asks for wides. LOL

    ------------------

    sehwag pulls for a 4!

    ------------------

    another pull for a 4!! 2 fours in an over!

    ------------------

    crowds going nuts

    ------------------

    Sehwag is living a charm life. Sammy dropped him again on slip.

    ------------------

    Marlon Samuels took 6 minutes to bowl a over and he is a spinner. Umpire have a word with him - to hurry the **** up!

    ------------------

    Samuels took under 2 minutes to bowl an over. LOL

    ------------------

    spinners make the game boring.
