View dismissal HM Amla b Rampaul 102 130 109 8 0 93.57
33.1 83.1 mph, gone! Stumps splattered! That has come out of nowhere! Rampaul lands his first ball on a decent line and length, Amla plays back to one he should have come forward to, and it clatters into the stumps. West Indies really needed that 186/3
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Ramdin b Bravo 18 33 17 2 1 105.88
6.5 82.9 mph, that's the line! Bravo pulls his length back a touch and keeps the ball in the channel outside off stump. Smith's feet went nowhere as he tried to force through the covers, and Ramdin is the grateful recipient of the resulting thick edge. One down! 53/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Rampaul b Bravo 1 8 7 0 0 14.28
8.4 80.1 mph, double strike from Bravo! The ball wasn't great - a short, wide long hop. But Kallis really reached for it as he tried to slash over the off side. A big top edge flew down to third man, where the fielder held on to an easy chance. Another one goes down! 57/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Sarwan b Taylor 102 145 101 5 2 100.99
44.2 87.9 mph, top catch! De Villiers departs! Full from Taylor, de Villiers had given himself room, trying to carve it over point but Sarwan, who isn't the tallest of fellows, leapt up and clasped the chance with two hands 259/5
View dismissal JP Duminy b Rampaul 15 45 27 0 1 55.55
41.5 84.6 mph, Rampaul, take a bow! This is reward for an excellent over, Duminy skips far too far leg side of the ball, looking to carve it over cover, but misses and it crashes into the stumps 240/4
DA Miller not out 23 32 16 1 1 143.75
View dismissal J Botha b Bravo 3 6 6 0 0 50.00
45.3 80.3 mph, gone! Well, very simple this. Good ball from Bravo, honing on to leg stump, Botha aims an enormous swipe, misses, and leg stump is cartwheeling 265/6
View dismissal R McLaren c Gayle b Taylor 1 1 3 0 0 33.33
46.3 85.1 mph, oh, that is a cracker! Gayle has taken a fabulous catch! It was short, McLaren completely miss-timed a pull shot, it went behind square, Gayle dived, one-handed, behind him to his left to take a great catch 268/7

View dismissal ADS Fletcher c Kallis b Steyn 3 7 12 0 0 25.00
2.5 87.4 mph, edged, and gone! Test match bowling from Steyn, and it's too good for Fletcher. The ball was fast, pitched up on off stump and swinging away. Fletcher came forward but couldn't cover the movement and the ball absolutely flew off the outside edge to Kallis at second slip. He took a good, sharp catch right infront of his face, and that's another failure with the bat for Fletcher 4/1
View dismissal CH Gayle* c Botha b Morkel 45 51 39 8 0 115.38
12.2 89.1 mph, one shot too many from Gayle, and he's easily caught off another spiralling top edge. The pressure was mounting on him with Sarwan unable to rotate the strike effectively and he went for another massive swipe to leg. He sent the ball up really high, but Botha was right underneath it at midwicket to hold onto the chance. Big, big wicket there 69/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo c †de Villiers b McLaren 15 22 10 3 0 150.00
7.4 83.4 mph, McLaren strikes! He could have had Gayle, but he's dismissed Bravo in the end. The ball was pitched just short of a length, outside off and Bravo aimed a very optimistic swish to the off side. He was neither forward nor back, just flung the bat at it, and de Villiers snaffled the regulation chance behind the stumps 44/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan b Morkel 38 87 59 1 0 64.40
29.1 85.9 mph, oh no! That could be it. Morkel back for a new spell, bangs it in outside off, Sarwan attempting a nothing-shot really, open-faced nurdle with planted feet, gets an inside edge on to his off stump 140/5
View dismissal N Deonarine c Kallis b Botha 26 55 48 1 1 54.16
26.5 53.9 mph, Botha strikes, that's the end for Deonarine. Gets down on one-knee to sweep, hint of extra bounce caught the gloves and it looped to Kallis at short fine leg. He does not drop dollies like that. 130/4
View dismissal D Ramdin b Steyn 17 54 29 2 0 58.62
38.3 74.3 mph, very good from Steyn, really thought this through, another slower ball, Ramdin giving himself room looking to carve it over point, but is too early on it and ends up inside-edging on to his stumps 192/6
View dismissal KA Pollard c McLaren b Morkel 44 47 37 5 1 118.91
39.2 86.6 mph, that might well be it. Pollard falls. Fullish, Pollard tried to swing it over long on, but it got the toe end, went high and swirling down to McLaren, who made no mistake and took the catch on the boundary's edge 197/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy c Kallis b McLaren 2 10 6 0 0 33.33
41.3 82.0 mph, this is tough for the lower order, not much they can do, Sammy tries to smack it over midwicket, can't time it, gets a top edge down to Kallis on the boundary 203/8
NO Miller not out 13 21 16 0 1 81.25
View dismissal JE Taylor lbw b Botha 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
42.2 62.1 mph, gone this time, in bizarre fashion, it pitched in line, Taylor left it, and ushered it on to his pad, and it's plumb 205/9
View dismissal R Rampaul c Smith b Tsotsobe 3 6 8 0 0 37.50
44.1 that's it! All over! Comprehensive victory for South Africa. Rampaul tries to smack it down the ground, doesn't get much of it and Smith takes the catch. Gentle high-fives all round for the South African's. Gayle does not look overly amused, but shakes hands with all the opposition players. 215/10
