South Africa in West Indies ODI Series - 1st ODI

West Indies v South Africa

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

2.5

Steyn to Fletcher, OUT, edged, and gone! Test match bowling from Steyn, and it's too good for Fletcher. The ball was fast, pitched up on off stump and swinging away. Fletcher came forward but couldn't cover the movement and the ball absolutely flew off the outside edge to Kallis at second slip. He took a good, sharp catch right infront of his face, and that's another failure with the bat for Fletcher

ADS Fletcher c Kallis b Steyn 3 (7m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

West Indies 4/1   CH Gayle 1* (5b)   DW Steyn 1.5-0-2-1

7.4

McLaren to Bravo, OUT, McLaren strikes! He could have had Gayle, but he's dismissed Bravo in the end. The ball was pitched just short of a length, outside off and Bravo aimed a very optimistic swish to the off side. He was neither forward nor back, just flung the bat at it, and de Villiers snaffled the regulation chance behind the stumps

DJ Bravo c †de Villiers b McLaren 15 (22m 10b 3x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

West Indies 44/2   CH Gayle 25* (24b 3x4)   R McLaren 0.4-0-3-1

12.2

Morkel to Gayle, OUT, one shot too many from Gayle, and he's easily caught off another spiralling top edge. The pressure was mounting on him with Sarwan unable to rotate the strike effectively and he went for another massive swipe to leg. He sent the ball up really high, but Botha was right underneath it at midwicket to hold onto the chance. Big, big wicket there

CH Gayle c Botha b Morkel 45 (51m 39b 8x4 0x6) SR: 115.38

West Indies 69/3   RR Sarwan 3* (14b)   M Morkel 2.2-1-14-1

26.5

Botha to Deonarine, OUT, Botha strikes, that's the end for Deonarine. Gets down on one-knee to sweep, hint of extra bounce caught the gloves and it looped to Kallis at short fine leg. He does not drop dollies like that.

N Deonarine c Kallis b Botha 26 (55m 48b 1x4 1x6) SR: 54.16

West Indies 130/4   RR Sarwan 36* (53b 1x4)   J Botha 5.5-0-28-1

29.1

Morkel to Sarwan, OUT, oh no! That could be it. Morkel back for a new spell, bangs it in outside off, Sarwan attempting a nothing-shot really, open-faced nurdle with planted feet, gets an inside edge on to his off stump

RR Sarwan b Morkel 38 (87m 59b 1x4 0x6) SR: 64.40

West Indies 140/5   D Ramdin 7* (8b 1x4)   M Morkel 4.1-1-19-2

38.3

Steyn to Ramdin, OUT, very good from Steyn, really thought this through, another slower ball, Ramdin giving himself room looking to carve it over point, but is too early on it and ends up inside-edging on to his stumps

D Ramdin b Steyn 17 (54m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.62

West Indies 192/6   KA Pollard 40* (35b 4x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 6.3-0-34-2

39.2

Morkel to Pollard, OUT, that might well be it. Pollard falls. Fullish, Pollard tried to swing it over long on, but it got the toe end, went high and swirling down to McLaren, who made no mistake and took the catch on the boundary's edge

KA Pollard c McLaren b Morkel 44 (47m 37b 5x4 1x6) SR: 118.91

West Indies 197/7   DJG Sammy 0* (3b)   M Morkel 7.2-1-38-3

41.3

McLaren to Sammy, OUT, this is tough for the lower order, not much they can do, Sammy tries to smack it over midwicket, can't time it, gets a top edge down to Kallis on the boundary

DJG Sammy c Kallis b McLaren 2 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

West Indies 203/8   NO Miller 4* (10b)   R McLaren 7.3-1-32-2

42.2

Botha to Taylor, OUT, gone this time, in bizarre fashion, it pitched in line, Taylor left it, and ushered it on to his pad, and it's plumb

JE Taylor lbw b Botha 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 205/9   NO Miller 6* (13b)   J Botha 9.2-0-40-2

44.1

Tsotsobe to Rampaul, OUT, that's it! All over! Comprehensive victory for South Africa. Rampaul tries to smack it down the ground, doesn't get much of it and Smith takes the catch. Gentle high-fives all round for the South African's. Gayle does not look overly amused, but shakes hands with all the opposition players.

R Rampaul c Smith b Tsotsobe 3 (6m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

West Indies 215/10   NO Miller 13* (16b 1x6)   LL Tsotsobe 6.1-0-34-1
