24 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Steyn to DM Bravo, FOUR, Steyn's been very straight this over, this time he slides down leg and Bravo just needs to get bat on that to send it scurrying for four

West Indies 8/1   DM Bravo 4* (6b 1x4)   DW Steyn 0.4-0-5-0

Steyn to DM Bravo, FOUR, that's an expensive over from Steyn, once more he targets the pads, Bravo confidently shuffles across and flicks that behind square leg for four, superb timing

West Indies 14/1   DM Bravo 10* (8b 2x4)   DW Steyn 1-0-11-0

Botha to Smith, FOUR, not much room on offer for Smith, but he loves to cut and he plays it well, making a bit of room to crack the ball behind backward point for four

West Indies 20/1   DS Smith 6* (6b 1x4)   J Botha 2.1-0-9-1

Steyn to DM Bravo, FOUR, Bravo shows why he's so highly rated, a bit of width from Steyn and Bravo punishes that with panache, stabs it through cover for four

West Indies 26/1   DM Bravo 16* (21b 3x4)   DW Steyn 2.2-1-15-0

Kallis to DM Bravo, FOUR, and what a welcome he gets, disdain from Bravo as he flat bats a not so short ball over wide mid-on, emphatic!

West Indies 33/1   DM Bravo 22* (26b 4x4)   JH Kallis 0.1-0-4-0

Kallis to DM Bravo, FOUR, what a shot from Bravo, a length ball and Bravo dismisses that one towards wide long-off, dismissive

West Indies 37/1   DM Bravo 26* (28b 5x4)   JH Kallis 0.3-0-8-0

Morkel to Smith, FOUR, Smith shows his mastery of the cut, bit of width from Morkel and he chops that behind backward point for four, nicely done, only 56m to that boundary

West Indies 49/1   DS Smith 14* (25b 2x4)   M Morkel 2.5-0-9-0

Kallis to DM Bravo, FOUR, can't think of a more contrasting shot to the previous one, this one is a murderous pull in front of square, Bravo doesn't rate Kallis as a bowler it seems, the fifty stand is up, Kallis won't be bowling too many short balls to Bravo from now

West Indies 55/1   DM Bravo 36* (39b 6x4)   JH Kallis 2.3-0-18-0

Morkel to DM Bravo, FOUR, a dirty slog from Bravo, four dot balls had tested his patience, well outside off but doesn't deter Bravo from looking to swipe it over mid-on, doesn't connect as well as he would have liked, but still gets enough to get a boundary

West Indies 62/1   DM Bravo 42* (46b 7x4)   M Morkel 3.5-0-13-0

Morkel to DM Bravo, FOUR, Bravo races along to 47, a length ball, Bravo was nowhere near the pitch of the ball and he lashes that down the ground for four

West Indies 68/1   DM Bravo 47* (50b 8x4)   M Morkel 4.1-0-17-0

Peterson to Smith, FOUR, well-played Smith - he's been getting tied down, and responds with a riskfree loft to a delivery bowled on a length and turning in. He chips out and just plays through the line, timed efficiently for four over the bowler's head. Almost a six.

West Indies 95/1   DS Smith 25* (43b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 1.4-0-9-0

Morkel to DJ Bravo, FOUR, slogged by Bravo, at least he attempted to slog it, wanted to launch that out of the ground, it takes a top edge and flies towards third man for four, Bravo won't be complaining

West Indies 171/4   DJ Bravo 35* (31b 1x4 3x6)   M Morkel 6.1-0-26-0

Botha to Thomas, FOUR, Thomas gets on the back foot and seemed to be off balance when he played a late cut, but he has played it well enough to pick up a boundary past third man

West Indies 205/5   DC Thomas 11* (14b 1x4)   J Botha 9-0-48-2

Imran Tahir to Chanderpaul, FOUR, West Indies showing its not all about power, Chanderpaul this time, making room and playing a superbly timed lofted, inside-out drive past long-off for four more

West Indies 209/5   S Chanderpaul 31* (50b 1x4 1x6)   Imran Tahir 8.1-0-38-2

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

West Indies 219/9   SJ Benn 4* (3b 1x4)   M Morkel 7.3-0-34-0
