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

Pollard to Kallis, 1 run, the ball spits up off a length, the batsman hangs back deep in the crease with the keeper up and plays it down just to short third man's left


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, back of a length from Pollard again, nudged down on the leg side and they sprint through


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 de Villiers, 1 wide, big wide from Pollard, pushing the ball very wide of off stump


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, drop and run from de Villiers now, as the ball bobbles behind square and they sprint through


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   KA Pollard 1-0-6-0

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


Pollard to Kallis, 2 runs, width given outside off stump, Kallis aims a mow over the covers and ends up sending the ball up off the top edge and down to third man


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


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, cutter from Pollard, de Villiers pulls off the front foot out to square 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

JH Kallis c Sarwan b Pollard 53 (51m 45b 1x4 3x6) SR: 117.77


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 wide, well, not great follow-up to the wicket there. Massive wide down the off side


Pollard to de Villiers, 2 runs, that's much better, a slower offcutter from Pollard. Though they've taken two from a solid punch to wide long on, the ball was full and aimed at the stumps

South Africa 114/3   KA Pollard 2-0-13-1

Pollard to Petersen, no run, bouncer from Pollard, Petersen went to pull but is beaten by some extra bounce. That looked like it went over the batsman's head, but not given as a wide


Pollard to Petersen, 1 run, angling in to the pads this time, and flicked to fine leg's right


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, pushed down the ground, and though de Villiers and Petersen are lightning-quick between the wickets they decide against two


Pollard to Petersen, 1 run, full and at the toes, clipped in the air out to deep square leg


Pollard to de Villiers, no run, de Villiers backs away, giving himself acres of room, and Pollards floats up a slower one, beating the batsman's wild slash


Pollard to de Villiers, OUT, another slower cutter, another wicket for Pollard! de Villiers was aiming straight down the ground, but sliced at the ball just a little, putting more height than distance in the shot, and long off barely had to move in taking the catch

AB de Villiers c Taylor b Pollard 11 (24m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

South Africa 122/6   KA Pollard 3-0-16-2

Pollard to van der Merwe, 1 run, short and angled down to short third man. The fielder is there but they charge through regardless


Pollard to McLaren, no run, McLaren goes for a massive swipe over the leg side but misses completely


Pollard to McLaren, no run, and again! McLaren is aiming to send the ball into a low orbit here, but he can't lay bat on it


Pollard to McLaren, 2 runs, he goes down to sweep the cutter this time, and some really sharp running gets them two runs. They could've been in trouble there with a better throw, but at this stage you've got to just go for it


Pollard to McLaren, 1 run, top-edged drive down the ground falls short of long off and they charge through


Pollard to van der Merwe, 2 runs, van der Merwe shapes to play some sort of bizarre reverse-pull, Pollard fires down a cutter back of a length and the batsman gets glove/splice on it. The ball loops up and over the keeper, and third man (or is that fine leg?) fumbles in the field to allow them back for two

South Africa 136/7   KA Pollard 4-0-22-2
