View dismissal AB de Villiers c Chanderpaul b Collymore 146 195 130 12 5 112.30
43.1 and immediately he strikes as de Villiers tries to cheekily flick one over short fine leg...but he just cannot time it, and there ends a brilliant innings 261/3
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Ramdin b Collymore 7 35 22 0 0 31.81
6.6 oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. That is a terrible stroke. Half a step down the track, trying to hit an outswinger over the top and a thick edge hands the wicketkeeper the simplest of catches 21/1
View dismissal JH Kallis b Gayle 81 127 86 6 1 94.18
35.2 Gayle strikes! At last the deadlock is broken! Kallis moved back (and then forward) to give himself some room, there, but he didn't make contact as the ball turned back into him and took middle stump 191/2
HH Gibbs not out 61 70 40 4 3 152.50
View dismissal MV Boucher c & b Bravo 52 32 23 2 5 226.08
49.2 a slower ball which comes out as a full toss, Boucher misreads it and skies it back to the bowler who just takes a few steps to his right to take a simple catch 347/4

View dismissal CH Gayle run out (Prince) 32 54 35 3 0 91.42
11.3 from Hall, just short of a length and it's worked to leg for a quick single. Well, they better be quick - Gayle hesitated a touch and Prince, at short midwicket, had just one stump to aim at...and he's nailed it 69/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Smith b Pollock 4 12 7 0 0 57.14
2.1 early success for South Africa as the ball's placed outside off and that's driven straight into Smith's bucket hands at mid-off for an easy catch 5/1
View dismissal DS Smith c de Villiers b Nel 33 39 27 4 0 122.22
10.6 good catch! Smith stepped outside leg, and guided it off the face of the bat to de Villiers - twanging hamstring and all - who dived in from point and took an excellent, low catch. Smith wasn't sure that he held it, but de Villiers gave him the thumbs up 65/2
View dismissal BC Lara* b Kallis 21 44 26 1 0 80.76
19.4 oh no, Lara's gone. Good bowling change from Smith, Kallis's slight change of pace causing Lara problems. It was wide of the off stump and, frankly, deserved to be smacked through the covers...but he just couldn't get to the pitch of the ball, and inside-edged onto his stumps 119/4
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Pollock b Ntini 92 124 75 10 1 122.66
38.1 goddim, and with him goes any last remnants of hope the West Indies might've had. He tried to take Ntini on, tried to hit him over the top - but his front-footed slap was mistimed straight to Pollock at mid off 213/8
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Gibbs b Pollock 6 20 11 0 0 54.54
24.1 and the move pays off straight away. Short - but not that short - and the batsman doesn't have enough room on the drive to midwicket. Gibbs is all smiles and he points his index finger in the air, because he can 142/5
View dismissal KA Pollard b Kallis 10 23 17 1 0 58.82
29.5 awful, awful. A straight one from Kallis, on a good length, and Pollard comes down the track to try to pull that through midwicket, yorks himself, tucks his bat under his arm and he's on his way. Middle peg goes wheeling 169/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c sub (RJ Peterson) b Smith 4 9 9 0 0 44.44
31.5 fine catch from Peterson, the substitute, diving forward at short midwicket. Ramdin flicked it feebly, with no intent, no placement and it bobbled up tantalisingly to Peterson who dived forward, taking it an inch or so from the turf. Made it look very easy 181/7
View dismissal IDR Bradshaw c Hall b Smith 20 58 45 1 0 44.44
45.3 goes for it this time and sends slog-sweeps it, sending it looping high - my, what a lovely parabola - but straight to the man at deep deep square leg 254/9
