South Africa in West Indies ODI Series - 1st ODI

West Indies v South Africa

South Africa won by 66 runs (D/L method)

6.5

Bravo to Smith, OUT, that's the line! Bravo pulls his length back a touch and keeps the ball in the channel outside off stump. Smith's feet went nowhere as he tried to force through the covers, and Ramdin is the grateful recipient of the resulting thick edge. One down!

GC Smith c †Ramdin b Bravo 18 (33m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 105.88

South Africa 53/1   HM Amla 33* (25b 5x4)   DJ Bravo 0.5-0-4-1

8.4

Bravo to Kallis, OUT, double strike from Bravo! The ball wasn't great - a short, wide long hop. But Kallis really reached for it as he tried to slash over the off side. A big top edge flew down to third man, where the fielder held on to an easy chance. Another one goes down!

JH Kallis c Rampaul b Bravo 1 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

South Africa 57/2   HM Amla 36* (29b 5x4)   DJ Bravo 1.4-0-4-2

33.1

Rampaul to Amla, OUT, gone! Stumps splattered! That has come out of nowhere! Rampaul lands his first ball on a decent line and length, Amla plays back to one he should have come forward to, and it clatters into the stumps. West Indies really needed that

HM Amla b Rampaul 102 (130m 109b 8x4 0x6) SR: 93.57

South Africa 186/3   AB de Villiers 58* (67b 2x4 1x6)   R Rampaul 6.1-0-28-1

41.5

Rampaul to Duminy, OUT, Rampaul, take a bow! This is reward for an excellent over, Duminy skips far too far leg side of the ball, looking to carve it over cover, but misses and it crashes into the stumps

JP Duminy b Rampaul 15 (45m 27b 0x4 1x6) SR: 55.55

South Africa 240/4   AB de Villiers 94* (92b 4x4 2x6)   R Rampaul 8.5-1-36-2

44.2

Taylor to de Villiers, OUT, top catch! De Villiers departs! Full from Taylor, de Villiers had given himself room, trying to carve it over point but Sarwan, who isn't the tallest of fellows, leapt up and clasped the chance with two hands

AB de Villiers c Sarwan b Taylor 102 (145m 101b 5x4 2x6) SR: 100.99

South Africa 259/5   DA Miller 10* (6b 1x6)   JE Taylor 8.2-0-54-1

45.3

Bravo to Botha, OUT, gone! Well, very simple this. Good ball from Bravo, honing on to leg stump, Botha aims an enormous swipe, misses, and leg stump is cartwheeling

J Botha b Bravo 3 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 265/6   DA Miller 11* (7b 1x6)   DJ Bravo 8.3-0-30-3

46.3

Taylor to McLaren, OUT, oh, that is a cracker! Gayle has taken a fabulous catch! It was short, McLaren completely miss-timed a pull shot, it went behind square, Gayle dived, one-handed, behind him to his left to take a great catch

R McLaren c Gayle b Taylor 1 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

South Africa 268/7   DA Miller 13* (10b 1x6)   JE Taylor 9.3-0-58-2
