ICC Cricket World Cup - 7th match, Group B

South Africa v West Indies

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 43 balls remaining)

45.6

Steyn to Benn, no run, outside off, Benn looks to carve that towards point, bottom-edges it to the off side

West Indies 214/9   SJ Benn 0* (1b)

46.2

Morkel to Benn, no run, short of length and angling into middle, defended to the off side off the back foot

46.3

Morkel to Benn, FOUR, a boundary at long last for Wes Indies, a bit of width for Been and he slaps it behind point for four

46.4

Morkel to Benn, no run, this one came into Benn who was looking to repeat the previous shot, it sneaks under his bat to the keeper

46.5

Morkel to Benn, no run, length ball outside off, Benn's feet don't move an inch as he pushes the ball back to the bowler

46.6

Morkel to Benn, 1 run, short of length ball, on middle and off, squirted away towards square leg

West Indies 220/9   SJ Benn 5* (6b 1x4)

47.1

Steyn to Benn, 1 run, punched back down the track towards mid-off by the batsman

47.3

Steyn to Benn, OUT, and that's curtains for the West Indies innings, they finish on double Nelson, Benn was looking to sky that one over extra cover, gets far too much elevation and Morkel runs in to take a sharp catch, he's one of the best outfielders in the game though he's a fast bowler

SJ Benn c Morkel b Steyn 6 (14m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

West Indies 222/10   SJ Benn 6 (8b 1x4)
