  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RR Rossouw c †Ramdin b Holder 15 11 9 0 2 166.66
2.2 82.7 mph, short and angled across, Rossouw aims another punishing blow to the leg side - and nicks off! This rose sharply off a length, the extra bounce did for the batsman, visible top edge and Rossouw immediately drags himself away. WI have a second 21/2
View dismissal MN van Wyk c Pollard b Benn 4 2 3 1 0 133.33
0.5 59.6 mph, same delivery, same shot... but this time the ball comes high off the bat and flies straight to point! Sammy had switched with Pollard and van Wyke played the most accommodating of shots, he swipes at the floor in frustration before heading off 5/1
View dismissal F du Plessis* c Bravo b Holder 119 99 56 11 5 212.50
18.6 82.4 mph, goes down the ground this time and doesn't nail it and taken by long-on. Finally miscues one but it's the third-highest international T20 score and been some innings, clean ball striking, brilliant batting. Finally got one wrong and holed out to the deep fielder 222/5
View dismissal DA Miller run out (Russell) 47 43 26 4 3 180.76
10.3 Russell to du Plessis, yorker, well dug out, they try a quick single, Russell follows through and aims a kick at the stumps, connects and has got the run out! Superb work from the bowler. The batsman was diving full length into his ground and the bat is over the line but in the air. The football practise in the warm-up pays dividends for the West Indies. Pace onto the ball, got the right boot out and a nice touch to kick the ball onto leg stump in time, much-needed breakthrough for the tourists 126/3
View dismissal JL Ontong c Holder b Bravo 19 18 12 2 1 158.33
13.3 82.4 mph, length ball, a wild swipe to leg, top edge loops up to short third man. Bravo shimmies in celebration, Ontong goes just as it looked as he'd found his touch. Total miscue, a heave to leg from a loose base and was perhaps unfortunate to get so much top edge on the stroke but it didn't deserve any luck and it was a very easy catch 156/4
F Behardien not out 8 36 12 0 0 66.66
View dismissal D Wiese c Smith b Bravo 6 3 2 0 1 300.00
19.2 83.3 mph, tries to go down the ground again but this is nowhere near as clean a strike and picks out long-off. Fielder had to run in a distance to take the chance but Smith got in well in time to hold the chance, clunky strike from the batsman 228/6
View dismissal KJ Abbott run out (†Ramdin) 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
19.6 from Bravo, excellent yorker, missed, there's a cry for lbw to start with and then Ramdin throws down the stumps as they try a bye and effects the run-out. So West Indies save themselves a run right at the death and that's not too bad a final over all things considered 231/7

View dismissal DR Smith lbw b de Lange 17 7 9 4 0 188.88
1.5 88.0 mph, fullish and straight, Smith is caught on the crease - and up goes the finger! No footwork, he drove down the wrong line and was hit on the back pad, took a moment or two for the umpire to decide there was no bat involved but looked a good call 19/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c †van Wyk b Wiese 90 63 41 9 7 219.51
13.4 71.7 mph, slower ball outside off, Gayle presses at it and nicks it behind! Could be a huge moment in the game. Gayle trying to carve the cutter past short third man but just nicked it to the keeper's left and he clung on for dear life, ends a thrilling innings 171/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c Behardien b Wiese 60 63 39 7 2 153.84
15.1 75.7 mph, length on the stumps, Samuels steps away to leg and tries to swing it over the leg side, doesn't get enough on it and picks out long-on! Poor stroke really, couldn't find the gap, nor get enough elevation on it and it was a straightforward catch. Good knock from Samuels but he can't go on having lost Gayle 178/3
View dismissal KA Pollard c Behardien b Wiese 7 11 5 1 0 140.00
15.5 71.9 mph, slower ball, slapped leg side, it's gone straight up, Behardien comes tearing in from long-on and takes the catch! Another wicket falls. Total miscue off a big top edge, the slower ball does the trick, solid catch taken 185/4
View dismissal AD Russell c Miller b Abbott 14 9 6 1 1 233.33
16.4 80.5 mph, full toss outside off slapped straight to long-off! Deary me. Poor ball, powerfully slapped down the ground but couldn't have picked the fielder out better. Just when Russell looked to have really got set 198/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Ontong b Phangiso 10 10 5 1 1 200.00
17.4 59.5 mph, low full toss, swung down the ground and finds the fielder! Another full toss gets a wicket, miscue looking to go off side but got it too straight and not far enough, simple catch well held at long-off 209/6
