South Africa tour of West Indies, 1st T20I: West Indies v South Africa at North Sound, May 19, 2010

Taylor to Kallis, 1 leg bye, shaping in to Kallis's legs, the batsman walks across and angles the ball fine down the leg side, they run a single


Taylor to Kallis, no run, just a hint of an appeal from Taylor this time as the ball darts in to the batsman's pads, but he get's a little inside edge and the appeal is quickly quashed


Taylor to Kallis, no run, slower bouncer from Taylor, and Kallis didn't pick that one at all. He was through with the shot before the ball had even got to him, and took a painful blow under the armpit


Taylor to Kallis, no run, pushed defensively into the leg side, where midwicket sprints in to negate any thoughts of a single

South Africa 17/1   JH Kallis 0* (4b)

Benn to Kallis, no run, watchfully pushed into the covers by Kallis, no run


Benn to Kallis, 1 run, close! Kallis bent down to sweep, getting a top edge. Bravo sprinted back from square leg and leapt, full-length, but just couldn't get to it


Benn to Kallis, no run, down the wicket and smacked back to the bowler

South Africa 20/1   JH Kallis 1* (7b)

Taylor to Kallis, no run, Kallis makes some room, moving to leg and Taylor follows him, no run the result


Taylor to Kallis, FOUR, runs this time! The South Africans are starting to become accustomed to the pace and bounce - or lack thereof - in this pitch.

South Africa 33/1   JH Kallis 5* (9b 1x4)

Benn to Kallis, 2 runs, Kallis gets low down to paddle sweep, and they sprint through for two as the fielder is a little slow to get round on the boundary. Benn gives him a little gee-up for his efforts


Benn to Kallis, no run, reverse sweep from Kallis this time, but he's missed it completely

Benn to Kallis, no run, quick through the air from Benn, Kallis punches into the covers


Benn to Kallis, 1 run, and again, but this time he just about picked the gap - or at least didn't hit it straight to the fielder, and they scamper through for one

South Africa 39/1   JH Kallis 10* (14b 1x4)

Sammy to Kallis, 1 run, Kallis opens the face to send a length ball on off stump down to third man. Very little bounce on that one, really dying in the pitch


Sammy to Kallis, no run, now there's some bounce! Awkwardly played by Kallis, who had charged down the pitch and tried to flay the ball through the off side, but couldn't connect at all


Sammy to Kallis, 1 run, back of a length again, Kallis drops the ball into the covers and they scramble one

South Africa 42/1   JH Kallis 12* (17b 1x4)

Sammy to Kallis, 1 run, alarming, tennis-ball bounce there! Kallis recovered well though, swaying back and opening the face on the bat to send the ball up and over to third man


Sammy to Kallis, no run, that looked like the cutter from Sammy, Kallis kept his eye on it and pushed defensively to extra cover


Sammy to Kallis, no run, again the ball bounces up alarmingly, and Kallis is completely undone by it this time! He veered out of the way of the ball, and somehow Fletcher got a glove to it, otherwise that would have been four byes.


Sammy to Kallis, 1 run, Kallis pulls in the air, and the ball just clears the fielder! That was a real spliced shot, didn't go anywhere, but luckily for Kallis it beat the fielder

South Africa 60/1   JH Kallis 24* (26b 1x4 1x6)

Bravo to Kallis, SIX, well, Kallis had no trouble getting that one out the middle! The ball was full and he came forward and pushed wristily through the line to send the ball sailing away, with the wind, over deep midwicket. A superb shot on a difficult wicket


Bravo to Kallis, 3 runs, more runs, as Kallis clips onto the leg side, but the fielder cuts the shot off on the boundary and they run three


Bravo to Kallis, 1 wide, not pretty from Bravo, big, big wide down the off side and Fletcher has done really well to cut that off while standing up to the stumps

Pollard to Kallis, 1 run, Kallis moves to leg, Pollard follows him but he goes through with the shot to send the ball out to deep square leg


Pollard to Kallis, no run, Kallis goes for the double-bluff, telegraphing a movement to leg and then shuffling to off, but Pollard doesn't fall for it and the subsequent drive into the covers is immediately cut off


Pollard to Kallis, 1 run, pushed into the covers again, this time hit just softly enough that they have time to steal a run. Kallis keeps struck, and another run to the total

South Africa 96/2   JH Kallis 40* (36b 1x4 2x6)

Miller to Kallis, 1 run, a less expansive sweep this time, and they pick up one to deep square leg

Miller to Kallis, 2 runs, crunched down the ground, very straight but the long on fielder gets round in time to cut it off


Miller to Kallis, 1 run, pushed into the off side, they set off and make it, and that's fifty for Kallis! A really good effort on a pitch that looks difficult to survive on, let alone make runs

Pollard to Kallis, no run, once again the ball leaps up off a length, Kallis taps back to the bowler

Pollard to Kallis, 1 run, full, Kallis drives and inside-edges, they steal one to short fine leg


Pollard to Kallis, OUT, Kallis falls! Big, big wicket for West Indies, and Pollard is the man that has done it for them. The ball was back of a length and straight, Kallis tried to pull and presumably was aiming for a maximum, but he was hitting into the wind and didn't get a good connection. Sarwan ran in and held onto a regulation chance
