South Africa tour of West Indies, 2nd T20I: West Indies v South Africa at North Sound, May 20, 2010

Taylor to Bosman, OUT, Bosman falls in identical circumstances to his dismissal yesterday! The ball was back of a length, angling at the hip and Bosman got right across his stumps to try and pull it away. Ball struck glove and Fletcher took a good tumbling catch, exactly as he did yesterday. The only difference is that this time Umpire Duncan raised the finger, instead of signalling wide...

LE Bosman c †Fletcher b Taylor 0 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 6/1   GC Smith 6* (6b 1x4)   JE Taylor 0.3-0-0-1

Taylor to Smith, OUT, bowled 'im! Full and fast from Taylor, the ball didn't bounce very much at all and whizzed past Smith's attempted swipe to leg to make a mess of his stumps! Smith shakes his head at the pitch as he trudges off, but while that ball kept a touch low it wasn't exactly a grubber. Taylor picks up his second wicket, and West Indies have the vital scalp of the South African captain

GC Smith b Taylor 15 (22m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

South Africa 27/2   AB de Villiers 12* (10b 1x4 1x6)   JE Taylor 2.1-1-8-2

Sammy to de Villiers, OUT, de Villiers is undone by the short ball! Did the ball hold up a touch there? It wasn't that short, but spat up at him as he swivelled to pull, taking a top edge and looping ever so gently to Bravo at backward point

AB de Villiers c Bravo b Sammy 19 (27m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 111.76

South Africa 42/3   JP Duminy 5* (9b)   DJG Sammy 0.5-0-5-1

Sammy to Duminy, OUT, back of a length bowling finally does for JP Duminy! That wasn't a bouncer but it certainly wasn't pitched up, angling across Duminy and also going away off the seam. There was a little bit of bounce on it too, enough to take the edge of his attempted cut, and Fletcher takes a really good, sharp catch standing up to the stumps. Top keeping effort there, and good bowling too

JP Duminy c †Fletcher b Sammy 13 (25m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 65.00

South Africa 57/4   AN Petersen 7* (10b)   DJG Sammy 2.2-0-11-2

Benn to Petersen, OUT, premeditated paddle-sweep from Petersen, and Sulieman Benn strikes with the first ball of his spell! It was very full, delivered from round the wicket, and Petersen had set himself very early for the shot. The ball was angling towards the leg stump when it struck him on the boot, and another wicket falls!

AN Petersen lbw b Benn 8 (17m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

South Africa 59/5   DA Miller 1* (3b)   SJ Benn 1.1-0-12-1

Taylor to Botha, OUT, Botha perishes for the cause. He was aiming right down the ground with a lofted smear, but sliced at the ball just a touch, and mid off set himself underneath the swirling ball to take a regulation catch. Not much else Botha could have tried to do, but West Indies will be glad to see the back of him after his striking in the last over

J Botha c Sarwan b Taylor 23 (24m 22b 0x4 2x6) SR: 104.54

South Africa 116/6   DA Miller 31* (23b 2x6)   JE Taylor 3.1-1-11-3

Taylor to Miller, OUT, Miller goes for an almighty heave over the leg side and misses completely, McLaren calls him through for a stolen bye but Fletcher reacts quickly, lobbing the ball to Taylor who flicks the ball at the stumps with Miller well short

DA Miller run out 33 (37m 26b 0x4 2x6) SR: 126.92

South Africa 120/7   R McLaren 1* (2b)   JE Taylor 4-1-14-3
