    11.2 Remember, South Africa wasted a review, so Amla can't go up for this lbw appeal. But I don't think there's anything wrong with this. This one's pushed through quicker, the ball drifts back in, pitches on off and skids on. Amla anticipates the one to veer away just a touch and pushes outside the line of the stumps, and was plumb in front once he was hit on the pad. Boy, I haven't seen Narine as animated as that in a long, long time. West Indies on fire! 35/4
    3.4 this time it's a screamer from Ramdin! He was initially moving to his right with the angle of the delivery, but had to suddenly change track as the ball flew off the bottom edge. Ramdin stayed down nice and low, which allowed him an opportunity to swiftly change directions as he pulled off a low catch moving to his right. De Kock is gone, that's a well-deserved wicket for Gabriel. Ramdin let one go in the last over, but has redeemed himself. Gabriel was pleading with the umpire and nearly appealed thrice before Dharmasena's finger went up. 16/1
    5.2 Gabriel slices Faf into half! The batsman beaten for pace. 148.4ks/92.2mph. A big appeal, and umpire's Brathwaite's finger goes up. Faf has a chat with Amla and takes a review. Sharp inducker, strikes the flap of the back pad. Was there an inside edge? Nope. Pitched in line and hitting the stumps. Would have taken the middle stump. Lbw. Review ends in vain, ump Brathwaite's call is vindicated 24/2
    7.6 Gabriel beats AB for pace as well! 144.4ks/89.7mph The captain walks back for only two. Full and outside off, AB chases it with a wild drive. He is late to do so. He ends up nicking it behind, Ramdin takes a good catch tumbling to his right. He goes down, landed badly on his right shoulder. He gets some attention from the medical staff. The quick caps a wicket maiden 28/3
    27.4 FB holes out. Length and seams away outside off. The batsman goes deep in the crease, swings across the line and toe-ends it. The ball lodges into the hands of Charles, running in from long-on. Bobble. Bobble. Taken on the third attempt 96/7
    14.1 the skipper is on fire, the entire team is on fire. Holder's decision to continue bowling while his hamstring his holding up well is paying off. Gets this one to lift off the deck from around the stumps, Duminy is clearly hustled for pace as he hops back to turn it to the on side, and can only get a leading edge that lodges in the bucket hands of Benn at gully. West Indies' celebration tells you a story. This has been an outstanding burst of fast bowling! Kensington Oval is buzzing with excitement 51/5
    17.5 sharp turn, sharp catch. Pollard celebrates as he snaffles that healthy inside edge with his right hand. This one is pushed through quicker from Narine, gets some bite on it as Morris's jab lobs in the air. Pollard does a celebratory run, and then goes towards the boundary and then bows down to the crowd and the dressing room. For a moment, I thought he was doing a Tahir there. South Africa in disarray here. 65/6
    33.3 Narine has his man now. Round-armish short ball turns away outside off. Extra bounce. Parnell shapes to cut and ends up top-edging a catch to Carter at backward point 118/8
    37.3 another run-out appeal, sent to the TV umpire. KG is out now. Back of a length and outside off, chopped to backward point. Morne sets off. There is a mix-up. The fielder aims a direct hit and misses. Nurse looks to gather the throw, fumbles, and tags the ball to Ramdin. Caught short 134/9

    45.6 that's the end of that! The partnership is over. West Indies are into the final! This was angled in from wide of the crease, the ball holds its line as Tahir pokes inside the line. Ramdin takes a regulation catch, much to the relief of his colleagues who have had to toil for the last three wickets. Smiles all around in the West Indies camp 185/10
