    19.1 outside off, a firm but unnecessary push off the back foot, and Jacques Kallis at second slip plucks the simplest of chances. Another one goes, and now it's trouble for West Indies 49/2
    14.6 got him, and I'm afraid that was inevitable. The outswingers set him up, this one pitched just outside, nipped back, and would have taken out middle and leg. West Indies have lost their first wicket of the innings 33/1
    25.2 done him like a kipper, and that's justice! Morton shoulders arms to a straight delivery that zips back into him, and strikes him on the back leg in front of middle. That would have taken the bails, and Pollock has his first of the innings 88/3

    82.3 bowled him! What a beauty from Steyn, an absolute corker though his celebration is completely unnecessary. It angled into Samuels before straightening; Samuels tried to turn it to leg but it clipped the off stump. Unplayable 292/6

    65.6 oh dear, that's what breaks can do to the concentration. That was angled towards leg stump, but not as far off target as Bravo thought. Played right across the line, and that's a fair decision 232/4
    76.3 short and wide, and there's the breakthrough! There was no need to play at that, and he didn't really play at all - just wafted it through with his feet stuck in the crease. 273/5
    84.4 got him! Angling into his pads but straightening on him at the last moment, and Sammy tried to turn it to leg but gets a leading edge which flies straight back to the bowler 305/7

    84.6 gone! Another brilliant delivery from Steyn, Powell trying to play to leg but beaten for pace. It was straight, and very fast, and much too good for him 305/8
    86.5 bowled him and South Africa have beaten the West Indies by an innings. A brilliant ball to a tailender - too fast, too straight 317/10
