  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

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

West Indies 6/0   CH Gayle 6* (7b 1x4)   DW Steyn 1.1-0-6-0

Morkel to Gayle, FOUR, short, looking for the ribs, bowls a bit too much down the leg side, nicely glanced away, Steyn makes a diving save at fine leg, but the replays show he touched the rope while fielding the ball. Good effort, though

West Indies 11/0   CH Gayle 11* (11b 2x4)   M Morkel 1.1-1-4-0

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

West Indies 20/1   CH Gayle 20* (16b 3x4)   DW Steyn 2.3-0-15-0

Kallis to Deonarine, FOUR, punched away down the ground, on the up, there is no mid-off, and he gets off the mark

West Indies 25/2   N Deonarine 4* (10b 1x4)   JH Kallis 0.3-0-4-0

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, overpitched outside off, gets close to it and drives it with an open face, past cover, this time gets four for it

West Indies 38/2   N Deonarine 10* (21b 2x4)   M Morkel 4-2-11-1

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, very nice delivery, not short, not full, around off, making him play, but Deonarine's soft hands mean the edge doesn't fly, and it also finds the gap between slips and gully

West Indies 56/2   N Deonarine 14* (31b 3x4)   M Morkel 5.5-2-26-1

Botha to Deonarine, FOUR, powerful sweep, you could sense he needed a release shot. Sweeps this off a length, doesn't bother keeping it down as there are hardly any deep fielders on the on side

West Indies 72/2   N Deonarine 28* (63b 4x4)   J Botha 5.5-1-11-0

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, Deonarine has lost his partner in the first over after lunch, and has flashed at the first delivery he faces after the break. Luckily for him, it flies wide of point for four

West Indies 82/3   N Deonarine 32* (87b 5x4)   M Morkel 6.1-2-30-1

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, flashes again, and this one flies over slips, strange mindset after nearly one full session of hard work

West Indies 86/3   N Deonarine 36* (90b 6x4)   M Morkel 6.4-2-34-1

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, this one was a loose delivery, half-volley outside off, and he sends it smashing to the cover boundary

West Indies 90/3   N Deonarine 40* (91b 7x4)   M Morkel 6.5-2-38-1

Morkel to Bravo, FOUR, again the fuller ball is strayed down the leg side, and is also a half-volley, and Bravo clips it away for four

West Indies 99/4   DJ Bravo 4* (9b 1x4)   M Morkel 8.5-2-45-1

Harris to Ramdin, FOUR, risky but well executed, cuts away a fullish delivery, but the good thing was he got width to free his arms, and gets four for it

West Indies 122/5   D Ramdin 6* (18b 1x4)   PL Harris 8.4-3-14-0

Steyn to Ramdin, FOUR, fuller, drawing him forward, and Ramdin pushes at it away from his body, the thick edge flies past slips for four

West Indies 129/5   D Ramdin 12* (24b 2x4)   DW Steyn 9-3-29-1

Botha to Ramdin, FOUR, and he cuts away a fullish delivery from just outside off, and he has had to make some room for this

West Indies 135/5   D Ramdin 16* (28b 3x4)   J Botha 12.4-2-25-3

Kallis to Ramdin, FOUR, misfielded by Steyn at cover, driven on the up nicely, but a rare mistake in the field by SA

West Indies 167/5   D Ramdin 26* (64b 4x4)   JH Kallis 8.2-1-18-0

Harris to Bravo, FOUR, beautiful shot, he charges at him, making room at the same time, goes inside-out, with the spin, along the ground, beats mid-off

West Indies 171/5   DJ Bravo 42* (84b 2x4 1x6)   PL Harris 15.2-3-28-0

Harris to Bravo, FOUR, not the greatest of follow-up shots, makes room again, but this time Harrish cramps him, and the bat turns, and he mis-hits it past midwicket. Was looking straighter, but there is a long-on in place too

West Indies 175/5   DJ Bravo 46* (85b 3x4 1x6)   PL Harris 15.3-3-32-0

Harris to Bravo, FOUR, Bravo will attack anything that is remotely attackable now that the tail has started. Charges down the track here, and lofts him over midwicket

West Indies 185/6   DJ Bravo 55* (92b 4x4 1x6)   PL Harris 16.2-3-39-0

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

West Indies 200/7   SJ Benn 10* (9b 1x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 11.2-1-33-2

Steyn to Bess, FOUR, full, on the pads, nicely clipped away, and he has followed his first Test six with a first Test four

West Indies 221/9   BJ Bess 11* (11b 1x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 13-3-37-3

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

West Indies 225/9   SJ Benn 18* (34b 2x4 1x6)   J Botha 19.3-2-50-3
