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

McLaren to Fletcher, OUT, Fletcher gone now, that is sad to see. He kept very well but his batting is looking very suspect at this level. Decent ball outside off, flat-footed fence from Fletcher, edged it through to the new keeper, who took a smart catch going quickly to his right

ADS Fletcher c †de Villiers b McLaren 0 (12m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 14/1   CH Gayle 13* (12b 2x4)   R McLaren 0.3-0-0-1

McLaren to Gayle, OUT, big wicket! Gayle has gone! Slower ball from McLaren, back of a good length, Gayle went for an expansive pull shot, looking to clear long on with the breeze, didn't get much of it in the end, only succeeded in spooning it to Smith two-thirds of the way back to the boundary

CH Gayle c Smith b McLaren 14 (24m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

West Indies 28/2   DJ Bravo 13* (12b 2x4)   R McLaren 1.1-0-1-2

Botha to Bravo, OUT, oh dear, that is the end for Bravo, skipped down the wicket and chipped down the throat of long on, never looked like clearing the fielder. Big wicket and South Africa will feel comfortable

DJ Bravo c sub (HM Amla) b Botha 20 (26m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

West Indies 48/3   RR Sarwan 12* (16b 1x4)   J Botha 1.3-0-4-1

Botha to Deonarine, 1 wide, OUT, oh great stuff from De Villiers. Leg-side stumpings always give me a giddy thrill. Fired down the leg side by Botha, a wide in fact, but Deonarine overbalanced as he missed his leg-side flick and De Villiers had the bails off in a flash, very smart work indeed.

N Deonarine st †de Villiers b Botha 0 (1m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

West Indies 50/4   RR Sarwan 13* (18b 1x4)   J Botha 1.5-0-6-2

van der Merwe to Sarwan, OUT, it's all unravelling now. Sarwan falls! Playing a fraction too early to one held back in the air, smart bowling, gets a leading edge which loops to cover, who dives forward to gobble up the chance

RR Sarwan c Petersen b van der Merwe 13 (23m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 65.00

West Indies 52/5   KA Pollard 2* (3b)   RE van der Merwe 1.4-0-13-1

McLaren to Pollard, OUT, McLaren strikes back straight away! Top stuff, yorker length, and squeezes between a swirling bat and a rooted pad and canons into leg stump, that's the game up you feel

KA Pollard b McLaren 27 (20m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 158.82

West Indies 88/6   DJG Sammy 10* (16b 1x4)   R McLaren 2.4-0-11-3

Langeveldt to Miller, OUT, gone this time, really massive heave across the line from Miller, but he only manages a top edge and it passes through to De Villiers

NO Miller c †de Villiers b Langeveldt 5 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

West Indies 99/7   DJG Sammy 13* (21b 1x4)   CK Langeveldt 2.3-0-23-1

Steyn to Sammy, 1 wide, OUT, oh dear, this is a touch farcical. Another wide miles outside off stump, another play and miss off, but a bye attempted, Sammy stands perfectly still, Taylor ears up the crease and ends up run out

JE Taylor run out 7 (7m 2b 0x4 1x6) SR: 350.00

West Indies 111/8   DJG Sammy 14* (26b 1x4)   DW Steyn 3.3-0-17-0

McLaren to Sammy, 1 wide, OUT, another wide, outside off, Sammy had wandered down the wicket, De Villiers under-arms the throw back in a flash and the Sammy is run out

DJG Sammy st †de Villiers b McLaren 17 (38m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.71

West Indies 120/9   SJ Benn 4* (2b 1x4)   R McLaren 3.1-0-16-4

McLaren to Benn, OUT, and that is that. Benn connects with a big shot down the ground, can't quite time it well enough, Amla takes an easy chance to finish the game. McLaren has five wickets, which is a rare feat in this format

SJ Benn c sub (HM Amla) b McLaren 4 (3m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 123/10   KAJ Roach 3* (2b)   R McLaren 3.5-0-19-5
