Match Notes

  • Sarwan and Chanderpaul salvage pride

    South Africa duly wrapped up the second Test at Durban by an innings and 65 runs, and so took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-Test series

  • Kallis and Kirsten make Windies toil

    Jacques Kallis and Gary Kirsten rattled along to the highest fourth-wicket partnership in South Africa's Test history, as West Indies were torn limb from limb on the third day at Durban

  • Gibbs leads the charge

    After having his nose rearranged in the first Test at Johannesburg, Herschelle Gibbs exacted the best possible revenge on the West Indian fast bowlers, by careering to his 11th Test century on the second day at Durban

  • West Indies recover from dreadful start

    Brian Lara and Ridley Jacobs added 98 for the sixth wicket to help West Indies recover from a shambolic start, but by tea South Africa were firmly in command of the second Test at Durban
