ICC Champions Trophy - 9th match, Group B

South Africa v West Indies

Match tied (D/L method)


Samuels to Amla, OUT, dropped. No, not quite. Gayle has taken the rebound. All Jamaican wicket. Samuels has lopped up a wide half-volley, Amla goes for the extra-cover drive, but doesn't get enough elevation. Gayle nearly drops it from head high, but as the ball is falling in front of him he goes down to complete the catch on the third take. Second take on the right hand, and the third on the left

HM Amla c Gayle b Samuels 23 (57m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 85.18

South Africa 80/1   CA Ingram 51* (46b 3x4 2x6)   MN Samuels 0.1-0-0-1


Pollard to Ingram, OUT, slower ball does it. On a length, pitched outside leg, but Ingram is too early into the shot, and ends up skying it towards deep midwicket. Little Bravo runs to his right, a long way, and judges the catch well, and then kicks it away

CA Ingram c DM Bravo b Pollard 73 (83m 63b 6x4 2x6) SR: 115.87

South Africa 124/2   AB de Villiers 22* (15b 1x4 1x6)   KA Pollard 0.3-0-2-1


DJ Bravo to Duminy, OUT, strangled down the leg side? Or is he? This is short, down the leg side, he is trying to pull it, but ends up gloving it. Not quite a strangle

JP Duminy c †Charles b DJ Bravo 2 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

South Africa 128/3   AB de Villiers 24* (17b 1x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 1.4-0-11-1


Rampaul to de Villiers, OUT, Little Bravo, you beauty. What a catch. Slower short ball, de Villiers pulls it, high and to the right of midwicket. Bravo goes with it, body slanted, both feet in the air, sticks out the right hand, and holds on. And then coolly walks towards other fielders

AB de Villiers c DM Bravo b Rampaul 37 (50m 26b 2x4 1x6) SR: 142.30

South Africa 153/4   F du Plessis 10* (12b 1x4)   R Rampaul 3.1-0-16-1


DJ Bravo to du Plessis, OUT, yorker outside leg, hits him on the pad, throws the stumps down as they try a leg-bye, and he has caught du Plessis short. That's a set man gone, and the new man will be on the strike too. Superb worl from Bravo in his follow-through

F du Plessis run out 35 (53m 32b 3x4 1x6) SR: 109.37

South Africa 221/5   DA Miller 38* (28b 1x4 3x6)   DJ Bravo 4.1-0-35-1


DJ Bravo to Miller, OUT, full, on middle and leg, 85mph, so not a slower ball, but Miller is cramped on the drive, and can't beat mid-off

DA Miller c Sammy b DJ Bravo 38 (40m 29b 1x4 3x6) SR: 131.03

South Africa 229/6   R McLaren 7* (3b 1x6)   DJ Bravo 4.5-0-43-2
