Sir Vivian Richards Trophy - 3rd Test

West Indies v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

62.4

Kallis to Benn, no run, tries the short one, but misdirects it down the leg side

62.5

Kallis to Benn, SIX, Benn is not going to hang around ducking! Pulls this one in front of square, and - elementarily - he sees it onto his bat as opposed to others who are not looking at the short ones

62.6

Kallis to Benn, 1 wide, whoa! That's some bouncer, Boucher has to leap full distance to collect this one. It isn't dug in too short, but has bounced high enough for it to be called wide. Kallis is not bothered. He gives Benn a long, hard stare

62.6

Kallis to Benn, no run, and another bouncer, slightly lower this time, and Benn keeps his eyes on it and sways out of the way. Eyeballing continues. Good fun

West Indies 194/7   SJ Benn 6* (3b 1x6)

63.2

Harris to Benn, no run, full and wide outside off, left alone

63.3

Harris to Benn, no run, and he leaves alone another delivery outside off, some restrain from Benn

63.4

Harris to Benn, no run, another ball well outside off, another leave

63.5

Harris to Benn, no run, defended off the front foot

63.6

Harris to Benn, no run, turn there, beats Benn, but they don't appeal for lbw as he has got himself outside the line of off

West Indies 195/7   SJ Benn 6* (8b 1x6)

64.2

Kallis to Benn, FOUR, goes for the surprise full one, but also gives him ample width and Benn goes for it, in the air but past gully

64.3

Kallis to Benn, 1 run, length ball, played with an open face, past point for one

64.5

Kallis to Benn, no run, goes for the bouncer, which doesn't quite get up, Benn sways out of the line

64.6

Kallis to Benn, 1 wide, goes for the throat, gets it too high, and Benn sways out of the line again

64.6

Kallis to Benn, no run, back of a length this time, Benn gets behind it and plays it back to Kallis

West Indies 203/7   SJ Benn 11* (12b 1x4 1x6)

65.5

Harris to Benn, no run, straighter one outside off, beats him

65.6

Harris to Benn, no run, stretches in front of himself to defend this back to Harris

West Indies 204/7   SJ Benn 11* (14b 1x4 1x6)

67.3

Botha to Benn, no run, Benn presses forward to defend this one

67.4

Botha to Benn, no run, another forward defensive

67.5

Botha to Benn, no run, tossed up outside off, invitingly, but Benn refuses to go for it - good restraint

67.6

Botha to Benn, no run, just when I said "restraint", Benn drives at a wide one and is beaten

West Indies 206/8   SJ Benn 11* (18b 1x4 1x6)

69.1

Botha to Benn, no run, angling in, turning away, nicely defended

69.2

Botha to Benn, no run, now Benn will go for his strokes, this time finds mid-off, though

69.3

Botha to Benn, no run, flight and dip there, Benn defends off the front foot

69.4

Botha to Benn, no run, topspinner outside off, is beaten on the cut

69.5

Botha to Benn, 2 runs, angled into the pads, deflected fine, Benn slips while turning for the second, so there is no chance of a third that would give him strike in the next over

69.6

Botha to Benn, no run, forward defensive, so he is not desperate to farm strike

West Indies 209/9   SJ Benn 13* (24b 1x4 1x6)

70.2

Steyn to Benn, no run, short outside off, Benn beaten on the punch, but it bounces in front of Boucher

70.3

Steyn to Benn, no run, fuller, closer to off stump, defended back to the bowler

70.4

Steyn to Benn, no run, another sharp short one, Benn for a change takes his eyes off, and it hits him in the chest, pretty close to the heart. No flinching, though

70.5

Steyn to Benn, no run, goes for the hook this time, ends up gloving it towards the wide slip. Kallis has time to come forward and attempt a catch, but he doesn't. Misjudgement

70.6

Steyn to Benn, no run, pulled in front of square, along the ground, Harris does well to run from mid-on and make a diving save

West Indies 210/9   SJ Benn 13* (29b 1x4 1x6)

72.1

Steyn to Benn, no run, slashes at one outside off, is beaten

72.2

Steyn to Benn, 1 run, slower one, plays it to cover, who is deep enough to allow the single

West Indies 217/9   SJ Benn 14* (31b 1x4 1x6)

73.1

Botha to Benn, no run, full, outside off, played back to Botha

73.2

Botha to Benn, no run, nicely forward to keep this one out

73.3

Botha to Benn, FOUR, flighted outside off, gives him width, and Benn nicely plays it over extra cover - good batting - he is defending, defending, before going after the real loose ones

73.4

Botha to Benn, SIX, lovely shot, goes with the spin again, and clears the two-thirds mid-off easily, Benn is playing a mini beauty here

73.5

Botha to Benn, OUT, and suddenly he plays a poor shot to prove me wrong! Reverse sweep of all of the injudicious shots! He is nowhere near pulling it off, the ball hits the back of the bat, then the glove, and then lobs to forward short leg. Anyway Benn did better than was expected of him

SJ Benn c Amla b Botha 24 (36b 2x4 2x6) SR: 66.66

West Indies 231/10   SJ Benn 24 (36b 2x4 2x6)
