Commentary

And South Africa win by four wickets, levelling the Twenty20 series at 1-1, and setting up the one-dayers rather nicely too. It was a cracking game, as Makhaya Ntini and Shaun Pollock both bowled superbly in their opening spells, ripping out the West Indies top-order. West Indies fought back well with Dwayne Bravo smacking 24 from 17...and in chasing 132, South Africa lost both their openers to Jerome Taylor. Darren Sammy was at his economical best, too, picking up 3 for 21...but ultimately, Pollock's experience was the difference, launching 36 from 25 balls.

Join me, Will Luke, and Martin Williamson, for the first one-dayer on Sunday morning at Centurion. For now, it's good night, and keep dancing.

Edwards to Morkel, FOUR runs, uppercut down to third man for four and there's the game for South Africa

That was a horrific stroke in the circumstances. All he needs to do is get bat on it, and run

Edwards to Morkel, no run, swing and a miss from Morkel! Not close to bowling him there, either

OK. Edwards to bowl the last over

Samuels to Morkel, FOUR runs, too short, cut behind square for four. Just too short and wide, and he played it really calmly

Samuels to Morkel, no run, loose stroke from Morkel, trying to clatter one over midwicket but it was too fast and full

7 needed from 9 balls. It's suddenly a walk in the park for South Africa
