South Africa in West Indies ODI Series - 4th ODI

West Indies v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)

9.30 It's the batting that has been the weakest link for the West Indies, the middle order not playing with the responsibility needed after Gayle fell for smallish scores in each of the three one-dayers.

Gayle and Dale Richards stride out to bat. It's go time.

9.15 The previous one-dayer was played under cloudy skies, but it's a beautiful sunny day today.

Gayle says its a great opportunity for some of the younger players in his side to stake claims for permanent slots.

Smith isn't too worried about having to chase and is looking forward to his bowlers starting off well.

9.00 West Indies have won the toss and will set a target for the first time this series. They have made one change, a bit of a surprise one as well, Jerome Taylor makes way for Dave Bernard.

South Africa have gone in for two changes: Steyn is given a rest, with Lonwabo Tsotsobe getting another game, and JP Duminy takes the place of Alviro Petersen

8.55 On to the fourth ODI of the series then, with West Indies having already surrendered the series. Graeme Smith will be thrilled with his side's performance after the miserable World Twenty20 campaign.

A solid batting performance from West Indies for the first time in this series. It started with the bright partnership between Chris Gayle and Dale Richards, after which there was a bit of a lull during the Chanderpaul-Richards stand. West Indies rarely got off second gear when Dwayne Bravo and Chanderpaul were at the crease as well, but the top-order's efforts had laid the platform for some late hitting. Darren Bravo delivered, and Pollard briefly showed what he's capable of as 98 runs came off the final ten to push West Indies past 300. Ryan McLaren was the best of the South African bowlers, who after a typically disciplined effort early on struggled to contain the runs towards the death.

End of over 50 (7 runs) West Indies 303/6
DE Bernard    13* (9b 1x4)      CK Langeveldt    8-0-59-2
DM Bravo    45* (31b 3x4 1x6)      R McLaren    10-1-45-1
