How things have come full circle. While South Africa, with two wins and a good net run-rate will back themselves to go through to semis, West Indies are not out yet. To stay in contention, though, they will have to beat... drum roll... England. After what they have been through with England over the last three months, now this: another match, with a semi-final place riding on it. What fun. Join us for that too. Until the, okay bye

Gayle: We didn't get a good start with the bat. Losing two wickets set us apart. Having said that, Lendl batted really well to give us a chance. He is in good form, and we have an important game to go against England. We have a good chance against them."

Smith: Very pleased. To post 180 was a good effort, we slowed down a bit with their good bowling but it was a good effort over all. It's a difficult field to defend, and we did well. Lendl Simmons played a great knock, so we had to fight harder."

Parnell, the Man of the Match: I took confidence from the England and gave my 100%. I actually believe this is a batsmen's game, but if you bowl really well you can get wickets. I have developed those yorkers over the last 10 months."

And with that, South Africa become the first team to string together six wins in a row in Twenty20 internationals. They were just too strong for West Indies, who were not aggressive enough with their bowling and batting starts. And Parnell, wow, what a display of consistent bowling of accurate yorkers. Simmons and Gibbs played two gems, but SA were too strong in the end

Parnell to Benn, 1 run, into the pads, turned around the corner

Parnell to Benn, no run, swinging yorker, defended off the back foot

So Parnell has four wickets, and we have one man to go. Can he get a five-for and claim the best-ever figures in a Twenty20 international? Benn to face
