Chennai, India – “It was the perfect ball at the perfect time.” That is how West Indies fast bowler Ravi Rampaul described the superb delivery which he produced to remove India’s batting legend Sachin Tendulkar in Sunday’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Group B match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

Rampaul takes 5-51 but Windies fall

Chennai, India – West Indies suffered another batting collapse as they fell to India by 80 runs in their final ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Group B match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk.

The Windies slipped from 154-2 in the 31st over to be bowled out for 188 with 42 balls left in reply to India’s 268 all out in 49.1 overs. The weak batting undid a career-best spell from fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, in his first World Cup match, and another fine innings from Devon Smith, the in-form left-handed opener.
