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

Roach to Smith, no run, full, wide and snaking away from the left-hander first ball, and Smith leaves well alone


Roach to Smith, 1 run, on target this time, spearing the ball at off stump. Smith taps softly towards mid off and they set off - South Africa are up and running!


Roach to Bosman, 5 no balls, woah! Roach dug that in half way done and the ball really ballooned up, way way over Bosman's head and over the keeper too and away for byes. What's more, he overstepped so this'll be a free hit


Roach to Bosman, 2 runs, slashed away over backward point, third man sprints in to cut it off and fires in a quick return


Roach to Bosman, no run, on a length on off stump, Bosman moves confidently forward to defend the ball to the off side with a resounding crack off the bat


Roach to Bosman, 2 runs, full and squeezed out just to Pollard's right at point, they scamper two


Roach to Bosman, no run, slapped very hard behind square on the off side and Pollard dives to his right to pull off a great stop. Good, clean fielding effort there, saving four runs

South Africa 10/0   KAJ Roach 1-0-10-0

Roach to Bosman, no run, full and swinging in a touch, defended on the off side


Roach to Bosman, 2 runs, good pace from Roach, hurrying Bosman into the shot on the off side


Roach to Bosman, no run


Roach to Bosman, no run, sharp bouncer! Bosman just about swayed away in time, but that fairly whizzed past his helmet


Roach to Bosman, no run, back and across in defence


Roach to Bosman, 1 run, close! Chipped in the air by Bosman, towards midwicket but dropping just short of Benn. They steal a run while the return comes in

South Africa 15/0   KAJ Roach 2-0-13-0

Roach to Duminy, 1 wide, he's just erred in line to start with, sending a short ball just a touch too far down leg


Roach to Duminy, OUT, what a comeback! They obviously had a plan to target Duminy's leg stump here, once again the ball was fired toward the leg stump from over the wicket, Duminy walked too far across in trying to work the ball to leg and his stumps went for a walk! West Indies celebrate, and that's another wicket at the wrong time for South Africa

JP Duminy b Roach 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Roach to Botha, no run, sharp start to the new batsman, fast and on a length but he's back and across in solid defence


Roach to Botha, OUT, vicious pace and bounce off the pitch, and Botha has gloved one! That was a brute of a delivery, Both stuck his hand up in self-preservation as the ball spat up at him, the ball looped up off the glove and Fletcher scooted round to take an easy catch. Roach is on fire here, another wicket for West Indies!

J Botha c †Fletcher b Roach 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Roach to de Villiers, 1 run, much fuller this time, and chopped down to third man with minimal foot movement


Roach to Petersen, 1 leg bye, Petersen is undone by some sharp pace and movement in from Roach, taking the ball on the thigh pad. They sprint through for one all the same


Roach to de Villiers, 2 runs, slapped out into the covers, and they charge through for two while the throw comes in. Almost overthrows there, not the greatest return to Fletcher

South Africa 119/5   KAJ Roach 3-0-17-2

Roach to McLaren, 1 run, spicy delivery, back of a length and up into the ribs, but McLaren gets across to drop it on the leg side and they scramble a run


Roach to Petersen, no run, crunched across the line by Petersen, who got a good connection but found the fielder with the shot


Roach to Petersen, FOUR, nice shot there! Petersen picked the length early, swivelling back to pull handsomely out to deep square leg. The placement and timing were perfect there, and four runs the result


Roach to Petersen, OUT, well, another wicket! After all the criticism levelled at him, that's a smart piece of work from Fletcher. The ball was missed by the batsman and came through to him on the bounce, Petersen thought about stealing a bye but Fletcher threw down the stumps with a direct hit that found him well short

AN Petersen run out 6 (4m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71


Roach to van der Merwe, 1 run, new batsman off the mark straight away with a tip-and-run to mid on


Roach to McLaren, 2 runs, McLaren backs away to give himself room and carves the ball out into the off side, they sprint two on what is a fairly large ground

South Africa 130/7   KAJ Roach 4-0-25-2
