  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* b Taylor 15 22 18 2 0 83.33
5.1 77.7 mph, bowled 'im! Full and fast from Taylor, the ball didn't bounce very much at all and whizzed past Smith's attempted swipe to leg to make a mess of his stumps! Smith shakes his head at the pitch as he trudges off, but while that ball kept a touch low it wasn't exactly a grubber. Taylor picks up his second wicket, and West Indies have the vital scalp of the South African captain 27/2
View dismissal LE Bosman c †Fletcher b Taylor 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
1.3 88.4 mph, Bosman falls in identical circumstances to his dismissal yesterday! The ball was back of a length, angling at the hip and Bosman got right across his stumps to try and pull it away. Ball struck glove and Fletcher took a good tumbling catch, exactly as he did yesterday. The only difference is that this time Umpire Duncan raised the finger, instead of signalling wide... 6/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Bravo b Sammy 19 27 17 1 1 111.76
7.5 53.6 mph, de Villiers is undone by the short ball! Did the ball hold up a touch there? It wasn't that short, but spat up at him as he swivelled to pull, taking a top edge and looping ever so gently to Bravo at backward point 42/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Fletcher b Sammy 13 25 20 1 0 65.00
11.2 51.7 mph, back of a length bowling finally does for JP Duminy! That wasn't a bouncer but it certainly wasn't pitched up, angling across Duminy and also going away off the seam. There was a little bit of bounce on it too, enough to take the edge of his attempted cut, and Fletcher takes a really good, sharp catch standing up to the stumps. Top keeping effort there, and good bowling too 57/4
View dismissal AN Petersen lbw b Benn 8 17 12 0 0 66.66
12.1 56.2 mph, premeditated paddle-sweep from Petersen, and Sulieman Benn strikes with the first ball of his spell! It was very full, delivered from round the wicket, and Petersen had set himself very early for the shot. The ball was angling towards the leg stump when it struck him on the boot, and another wicket falls! 59/5
View dismissal DA Miller run out (†Fletcher/Taylor) 33 37 26 0 2 126.92
19.6 from Taylor, Miller goes for an almighty heave over the leg side and misses completely, McLaren calls him through for a stolen bye but Fletcher reacts quickly, lobbing the ball to Taylor who flicks the ball at the stumps with Miller well short 120/7
View dismissal J Botha c Sarwan b Taylor 23 24 22 0 2 104.54
19.1 Botha perishes for the cause. He was aiming right down the ground with a lofted smear, but sliced at the ball just a touch, and mid off set himself underneath the swirling ball to take a regulation catch. Not much else Botha could have tried to do, but West Indies will be glad to see the back of him after his striking in the last over 116/6

View dismissal CH Gayle* lbw b Steyn 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 88.2 mph, Steyn strikes! Trouble for West Indies, as their captain departs. It kept low but Gayle should have been playing forward, fullish, swinging in and trapping Gayle in front of leg stump. Good decision from the umpire there 4/1
View dismissal ADS Fletcher c †de Villiers b Morkel 4 15 11 0 0 36.36
2.5 89.7 mph, gone this time, and South Africa must've seen this one coming. Morkel banged the ball in short, Fletcher tried to pull but his weight was forward, and he sent a spiralling top edge straight up in the air. Easy catch for de Villiers 9/2
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Botha b Morkel 40 65 42 1 2 95.23
16.1 77.7 mph, Bravo goes! The ball was pitched up and he threw everything, and the kitchen sink, into a hoick to midwicket. The ball went miles up in the air, Botha the fielder circling underneath it, and he managed to hold on to the chance. Botha let out a battle-cry after he took the catch, you could see how important Bravo's wicket was to South Africa 87/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †de Villiers b Botha 29 48 37 2 1 78.37
14.4 53.3 mph, there's the wicket South Africa needed! And West Indies could be in trouble now... Chanderpaul went down to reverse sweep but the ball looped up off the glove, de Villiers running back to take an easy catch 77/3
View dismissal KA Pollard c Steyn b Botha 12 17 13 1 0 92.30
18.3 64.5 mph, another wicket falls, West Indies' chase is unravelling now. Pollard tried to swing Botha out of the ground straight but got right underneath it. Steyn gets underneath it to take a simple catch 99/6
View dismissal RR Sarwan c McLaren b Botha 6 5 6 1 0 100.00
18.1 55.4 mph, Sarwan goes! They had to go for everything, Sarwan tried to lift the ball over midwicket but hit into the breeze, McLaren takes an easy catch 97/5
DJG Sammy not out 12 12 6 1 0 200.00
View dismissal N Deonarine run out (Botha/†de Villiers) 3 10 2 0 0 150.00
19.5 from McLaren, low full toss thrashed out to deep midwicket, they've got to go for two, they do! de Villiers breaks the stumps, and Deonarine's bat is in the air as he slides over the line! 118/7
