25 January 2008 - day/night match (50-over match)
  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Ramdin b Samuels 86 146 107 11 0 80.37
37.4 he looks to push the ball into the off side, gets the thinnest of edges and a jubilant Ramdin hurls the ball to the heavens ... even the taciturn Samuels can't hide his delight as he team-mates mob him 181/4
View dismissal HH Gibbs c †Ramdin b Taylor 5 14 10 1 0 50.00
2.6 well bowled, first blow for West Indies as Gibbs pushes forward and gets a thick edge through to Denesh Ramdin. Taylor deserved that after a decent start, but for Gibbs its a depressingly familiar dismissal as he reached for the ball outside off stump 8/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Chanderpaul b Taylor 7 10 8 1 0 87.50
4.6 key strike for Taylor, Kallis drives on the up towards mid-off and Shivnarine Chanderpaul moves to his left to pouch a good, vital catch...Kallis looks down at the pitch, the ball may have stopped a little but he wasn't very far forward in his drive 18/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Sammy 45 79 59 7 1 76.27
22.6 out of nowhere Sammy makes the breakthrough, de Villiers is caught on the crease, playing back when he should have been forward and the ball was heading halfway up middle stump. The end of an entertaining innings. 109/3
View dismissal JP Duminy run out (†Ramdin) 68 94 81 4 1 83.95
49.3 from Taylor, misses a huge swing, ball skims past leg stump and Duminy thinks of stealing a bye...Ramdin is quick with his throw and hits direct, Duminy wasn't able to turn quickly enough and he goes for a fine 68 254/8
View dismissal MV Boucher b Edwards 17 25 17 0 1 100.00
44.2 the bowler gets his revenge, again it wasn't quite a yorker but Boucher swings across the line and misses...the ball crashing into middle stump. Important wicket for West Indies because Boucher can cause serious damage late on 221/5
View dismissal SM Pollock c †Ramdin b Taylor 12 14 10 0 0 120.00
47.2 gone, trying to guide down to third man but Ramdin dives across and takes a good catch. Another South Africa batsman goes before he can do major damange 240/6
View dismissal J Botha c sub (DS Smith) b Taylor 3 10 6 0 0 50.00
49.2 picks out long-on with precision as he goes for big drive down the ground but doesn't connect out of the middle. A comfortable catch on the boundary and Botha's stay was brief 254/7
View dismissal M Morkel run out (†Ramdin/Taylor) 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
49.5 from Taylor, mayhem from South Africa...Morkel has a huge swing and also misses, Steyn calls him through for another bye. Ramdin doesn't hit at his end, but the throw is collected by Taylor who throws down the non-striker's and Morkel is well short. No need even for the third umpire this time 255/9

  West Indies innings (target: 256 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal BA Parchment c de Villiers b Pollock 8 18 16 1 0 50.00
4.3 gone, the first breakthrough, as a delivery bounces alarmingly from a good length and takes the shoulder of the bat looping towards de Villiers at point. It's a simple catch, but that ball came out of nowhere...a few have kept a little low today, but none have climbed like that 13/1
View dismissal S Chattergoon c †Boucher b Langeveldt 34 75 56 7 0 60.71
17.4 the breakthrough for South Africa! This one is closer to Chattergoon and bounces a little outside off stump, Chattergoon goes for the cut but is cramped for room and gets a top edge through to Boucher 59/2
View dismissal RS Morton c Steyn b Morkel 19 78 49 2 0 38.77
22.1 gone! Another soft wicket by West Indies, an awful shot from Morton who tries to pull a ball that isn't short enough and spoons a simple catch to mid-off. That's reminiscent of a few of Morton's dismissals on this tour 69/4
View dismissal MN Samuels c †Boucher b Morkel 2 14 10 0 0 20.00
20.6 beauty! Well bowled from Morkel, a rising delivery just outside off stump which Samuels is forced to play at but doesn't get behind the line. A regulation edge goes through to Boucher and South Africa well on top 64/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Botha b Langeveldt 54 116 83 5 0 65.06
47.3 gone! Chanderpaul's plainly odd - and poor - innings comes to end with a tame flick to midwicket. He never seemed to know what he was doing, and neither did anyone else 168/9
View dismissal DJ Bravo* run out (de Villiers) 11 33 26 0 0 42.30
30.3 from Pollock, gone! Defended down to point, Bravo sets off down the pitch but is sent back. Even with a dive he can't beat de Villiers's direct hit and the TV umpire confirms he is gone by a few inches 97/5
View dismissal D Ramdin b Pollock 0 3 0 0 0.00
30.6 and another! The collapse continues as Ramdin tries to cut a ball that was too full and too close to him, dragging a bottom edge into his stumps. More reward for Pollock and West Indies' sad procession continues 97/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy c †Boucher b Morkel 21 31 23 2 0 91.30
38.5 gone! Morkel has his moment at the of an expensive over, Sammy pokes at a shorter ball outside off stump and sends another simple catch through to Boucher 134/7
View dismissal R Rampaul c Smith b Steyn 1 10 8 0 0 12.50
40.5 gone! banged in and brings the pull from Rampaul, the top edge goes high behind the batsman and Smith makes excellent ground from slip to take a good catch over his shoulder heading towards third man 138/8
FH Edwards not out 8 34 12 1 0 66.66
View dismissal JE Taylor c Steyn b Morkel 1 3 5 0 0 20.00
48.2 gone, and that's the match for South Africa although we knew the outcome of this game a long while along. Taylor swings the ball high to mid-on where Steyn back-peddles for the catch...a career-best for Morne Morkel, a fine effort as he continues his recovery from injury 169/10
