0.2

0.3

Steyn to Gayle, no run, swing in to him this time, Gayle defends off the front foot

0.4

Steyn to Gayle, 2 runs, off the mark, just a push down the ground, past the bowler, easy couple

West Indies 2/0   DW Steyn 1-0-2-0

2.1

Steyn to Gayle, FOUR, nice shot, right on the top of the bounce but driving from away from the body, and also square of the wicket, the ball races away for four

2.2

Steyn to Gayle, no run, closer to the stumps, and he leaves it alone this time

2.3

Steyn to Gayle, no run, slightly shorter, but way too far from his body to interest him

2.4

Steyn to Gayle, 1 run, short, into the ribs, keeps it down and takes a single

2.5

Steyn to Richards, no run, beautiful bowling, lovely shape, the ball pitches middle and off, and swinging away towards off, Richards gets the outside part of the bat

4.2

Steyn to Gayle, 2 runs, pushed through the covers again, on the up, with gentle hands, gets another couple

4.3

Steyn to Gayle, FOUR, not very pretty, but effective, this time he gets the width and throws his bat at it, with an open face, and deliberately over the infield. It is not a clean hit, but crawls to the boundary

4.4

Steyn to Gayle, no run, back of a length, close to off stump, defended

4.5

Steyn to Gayle, 1 wide, wided for height, good bounce in this pitch

4.5

Steyn to Gayle, no run, this is a better bouncer, aimed for his ribs and chest area, Gayle ducks under it

4.6

Steyn to Gayle, OUT, for the third time in the series Gayle has played one on, after having scored 20 of the 21 runs on the board. Not the smartest of the shots, looks to cut, but it is too full and too straight for the shot. Add the slight shape into him, and Gayle has got himself out

West Indies 129/5   DW Steyn 9-3-29-1

66.1

Steyn to Bravo, OUT, and Bravo is gone first ball! Rush of blood to the head! Is he expecting a bouncer? Length ball outside off, Bravo's feet are rooted and he swings at it, the edge settles in Smith's lap, and another WI collapse immediately after a break continues

68.5

Steyn to Roach, no run, short one, outside off, Roach stays inside the line, and ducks under it

68.6

Steyn to Roach, OUT, this one seemed a matter of time, top pace, back of a length, slightly outside off, making Roach poke at him, and there is some extra bounce too. All he manages is an edge through to Boucher

KAJ Roach c †Boucher b Steyn 2 (13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

West Indies 207/9   DW Steyn 11-3-31-3

70.1

Steyn to Bess, 1 run, what a baptism! Bouncer aimed for the crown, somehow he gets his glove in the way, the ball lobs over the slip,s de Villiers makes a desperate dive but can only get a hand to it

70.3

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

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

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

72.3
