    22.6 that's the wicket South Africa are looking for, a short of length ball outside off, Richards goes for the drive and despite hitting it well he can't get it past a driving Graeme Smith at short cover 115/2
    10.4 Morkel gets the breakthrough as he has all series, short of length ball on off, Gayle backed away and looked to strike it over cover but ends up slicing it, its a skier which Duminy gets under from cover to take a well-judged catch 64/1
    41.2 end of Chanderpaul, just as he was shifting to a higher gear, he looks to pull a shortish ball but can get it only as far as Tsotsobe at deep midwicket 223/4
    37.6 slower delivery does the trick, Bravo is gone, he plays down the wrong line and middle stump is knocked back 191/3

    47.4 gets the yorker right on the third attempt, its spot-on and Pollard's cameo is over, he can't keep that one out and it smashes into the base of legstump, this is one action-packed over 282/5
    47.5 Langeveldt is making a superb comeback after being smashed for 16 off the first three deliveries, Sammy is bowled first ball after he winds up for a big hit only to find the ball has kept lower than he expects, offstump takes a beating, Langeveldt on a hat-trick 282/6

    9.3 the slower offcutter does the job, what a superb delivery gets rid of Smith, that one turned sharply after pitching outside leg, goes on to beat Smith and hit middle stump, an offspinner will be proud of that delivery 59/1
    37.2 that's the end of a superb innings from Amla, a slower ball from Pollard, Amla cracks it towards long-off, Bernard runs in and completes a simple catch, Amla is so tired he can barely trudge off to the dressing room 224/3
    29.3 Kallis perishes to the shot he has used so often against the spinners this innings, gets a top-edge as he sweeps and Dowlin takes a smart catch at deep backward square leg to snap the huge partnership 178/2

  • Benn loses match fee for disobeying Gayle

    Sulieman Benn, the West Indies left-arm spinner, has been fined his entire match fee from the fourth ODI against South Africa after he was ordered off the field by his captain Chris Gayle

  • Losing is becoming a habit - Chris Gayle

    Chris Gayle was disappointed with his side's inability to win games against South Africa, but the West Indies captain was happy with his team's effort and the spirit within the group

  • Gayle sends Benn from the field

    Sulieman Benn has riled opponents and match referees in the past, but he has hit a new low after being asked to leave the field by his captain Chris Gayle

  • Gibson wants batsmen to show 'common sense'

    A day after Ottis Gibson said he would like a batting coach to be part of his staff, West Indies proved they need the guidance of one by crashing to 157 all out

  • Amla century makes it 4-0 for South Africa

    Some inept West Indian fielding towards the end, and lack of intensity in pushing for an unlikely win, let them down and it was left to AB de Villiers to steer the more deserving team home
