Commentary

A fine century from Jacques Kallis sealed the deal for South Africa, cancelling out Marlon Samuels' excellent 98 earlier in the day. West Indies couldn't make enough chances in the field and the home side were always in control. There are two matches left in this series, but it's going to be very hard for West Indies. A whitewash is on the cards at the end of a tough tour.

The players shake hands on the steps and Pollock walks out to clap the supporters for all their singing. He walks around and bows to everyone, before heading off to celebrate the series success with his team-mates. The next match in the series is at Pollock's home ground, Durban, on Friday so that reception will be something to behold. Do join us for that match but for now, from Andrew McGlashan and Martin Williamson, it's goodnight.

Taylor to Kallis, FOUR runs, nice way to finish, short ball pulled over square leg and that's the match and the series for South Africa

The band continues to say goodbye to Shaun Pollock, they have played all day as usual...and Pollock comes out into the balcony. Some by-play from Taylor who aborts his delivery stride

Taylor to Kallis, 2 runs, gives himself room and slices high over cover, two men chase it and it doesn't reach the rope. Scores are level

Taylor to Kallis, no run, flicked to mid-on and it's too well timed to get a run

Taylor to Duminy, 1 wide, short and outside off stump, and too short for the umpire who calls it
