South Africa tour of West Indies, 1st T20I: West Indies v South Africa at North Sound, May 19, 2010
  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* st †Fletcher b Miller 37 52 31 3 1 119.35
12.1 51.5 mph, Gone! Smith falls to Miller's first ball! He tried the reverse sweep, missed it and over-balanced and Fletcher whipped the bails off. But hang on, replays show that Smith's foot was still balanced when the bails came off. He's walked off though, so I suppose that's a wicket, and West Indies won't mind one little bit 88/2
View dismissal LE Bosman c †Fletcher b Taylor 7 12 12 0 0 58.33
3.1 87.4 mph, what's happened here? Taylor slammed one in back of a length, Bosman went to pull and appeared to glove it down the leg side, where Fletcher took a good, tumbling catch. The Umpire then signalled wide... but Bosman walks! Bizarre 15/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Sarwan b Pollard 53 51 45 1 3 117.77
15.5 71.7 mph, Kallis falls! Big, big wicket for West Indies, and Pollard is the man that has done it for them. The ball was back of a length and straight, Kallis tried to pull and presumably was aiming for a maximum, but he was hitting into the wind and didn't get a good connection. Sarwan ran in and held onto a regulation chance 111/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Taylor b Pollard 11 24 14 0 0 78.57
17.6 71.0 mph, another slower cutter, another wicket for Pollard! de Villiers was aiming straight down the ground, but sliced at the ball just a little, putting more height than distance in the shot, and long off barely had to move in taking the catch 122/6
View dismissal JP Duminy b Roach 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
16.1 88.5 mph, what a comeback! They obviously had a plan to target Duminy's leg stump here, once again the ball was fired toward the leg stump from over the wicket, Duminy walked too far across in trying to work the ball to leg and his stumps went for a walk! West Indies celebrate, and that's another wicket at the wrong time for South Africa 115/4
View dismissal J Botha c †Fletcher b Roach 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
16.3 89.8 mph, vicious pace and bounce off the pitch, and Botha has gloved one! That was a brute of a delivery, Both stuck his hand up in self-preservation as the ball spat up at him, the ball looped up off the glove and Fletcher scooted round to take an easy catch. Roach is on fire here, another wicket for West Indies! 115/5
View dismissal AN Petersen run out (†Fletcher) 6 4 7 1 0 85.71
18.4 from Roach, well, another wicket! After all the criticism levelled at him, that's a smart piece of work from Fletcher. The ball was missed by the batsman and came through to him on the bounce, Petersen thought about stealing a bye but Fletcher threw down the stumps with a direct hit that found him well short 127/7

  West Indies innings (target: 137 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle* c Smith b McLaren 14 24 16 2 0 87.50
5.1 77.7 mph, big wicket! Gayle has gone! Slower ball from McLaren, back of a good length, Gayle went for an expansive pull shot, looking to clear long on with the breeze, didn't get much of it in the end, only succeeded in spooning it to Smith two-thirds of the way back to the boundary 28/2
View dismissal ADS Fletcher c †de Villiers b McLaren 0 12 3 0 0 0.00
2.3 84.4 mph, Fletcher gone now, that is sad to see. He kept very well but his batting is looking very suspect at this level. Decent ball outside off, flat-footed fence from Fletcher, edged it through to the new keeper, who took a smart catch going quickly to his right 14/1
View dismissal DJ Bravo c sub (HM Amla) b Botha 20 26 22 2 0 90.90
9.3 57.7 mph, oh dear, that is the end for Bravo, skipped down the wicket and chipped down the throat of long on, never looked like clearing the fielder. Big wicket and South Africa will feel comfortable 48/3
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Petersen b van der Merwe 13 23 20 1 0 65.00
10.4 57.2 mph, it's all unravelling now. Sarwan falls! Playing a fraction too early to one held back in the air, smart bowling, gets a leading edge which loops to cover, who dives forward to gobble up the chance 52/5
View dismissal N Deonarine st †de Villiers b Botha 0 1 0 0 0 -
9.6 60.0 mph, oh great stuff from De Villiers. Leg-side stumpings always give me a giddy thrill. Fired down the leg side by Botha, a wide in fact, but Deonarine overbalanced as he missed his leg-side flick and De Villiers had the bails off in a flash, very smart work indeed. 50/4
View dismissal KA Pollard b McLaren 27 20 17 2 1 158.82
15.4 McLaren strikes back straight away! Top stuff, yorker length, and squeezes between a swirling bat and a rooted pad and canons into leg stump, that's the game up you feel 88/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy st †de Villiers b McLaren 17 38 28 1 0 60.71
19.2 another wide, outside off, Sammy had wandered down the wicket, De Villiers under-arms the throw back in a flash and the Sammy is run out 120/9
View dismissal NO Miller c †de Villiers b Langeveldt 5 8 6 0 0 83.33
17.3 gone this time, really massive heave across the line from Miller, but he only manages a top edge and it passes through to De Villiers 99/7
View dismissal JE Taylor run out (†de Villiers/Steyn) 7 7 2 0 1 350.00
18.4 Steyn to Sammy, oh dear, this is a touch farcical. Another wide miles outside off stump, another play and miss off, but a bye attempted, Sammy stands perfectly still, Taylor ears up the crease and ends up run out 111/8
View dismissal SJ Benn c sub (HM Amla) b McLaren 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
19.5 and that is that. Benn connects with a big shot down the ground, can't quite time it well enough, Amla takes an easy chance to finish the game. McLaren has five wickets, which is a rare feat in this format 123/10
