West Indies tour of Zimbabwe and South Africa, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

West Indies in South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

South Africa v West Indies

South Africa won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

3.1

Ntini to Ramdin, OUT, swinging back into Ramdin who is again beaten by the movement off the pace. They try to steal a single but Ntini is so quick and flies past Smith, picking the ball up and flinging it onto the stumps. Superb work from Ntini

DS Smith run out 12 (13m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 171.42

West Indies 20/1   D Ramdin 7* (12b 1x4)   M Ntini 1.1-0-6-0

5.2

Ntini to Samuels, OUT, gone! Samuels steps to leg and tries to slap this over cover, but gets a thick outside edge. It flies to Boucher who takes a good catch above his head

MN Samuels c †Boucher b Ntini 4 (8m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

West Indies 30/2   D Ramdin 12* (18b 2x4)   M Ntini 2.2-0-11-1

7.5

M Morkel to Ramdin, OUT, gone! Excellent ball, again drawing Ramdin into a drive but it moves off the seam and flies straight to the lone slip

D Ramdin c Botha b M Morkel 19 (35m 26b 2x4 1x6) SR: 73.07

West Indies 41/3   S Chanderpaul 1* (7b)   M Morkel 0.5-0-8-1

12.1

Botha to Morton, OUT, well that's an unfortunate way to go. Morton tried to sweep, the ball coming off his glove or arm and bobbled back onto the stumps

RS Morton b Botha 12 (19m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

West Indies 58/4   S Chanderpaul 5* (15b)   J Botha 1.1-0-2-1

13.5

Ontong to Chanderpaul, OUT, excellent bowling. A good slower ball, foxing Chanderpaul in the flight who tried to punch it over cover, but the ball ballooned meekly to Botha at point

S Chanderpaul c Botha b Ontong 10 (39m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 72/5   DJ Bravo 9* (5b 1x6)   JL Ontong 1.5-0-18-1

14.4

Pollock to Lewis, OUT, awful shot. Full and straight, he tries to clobber this over long-on but skies it straight down mid-on's throat

RN Lewis c de Villiers b Pollock 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 79/6   DJ Bravo 15* (6b 2x6)   SM Pollock 3.4-0-17-1

17.4

Ntini to Bravo, OUT, easy catch for long-on as Bravo mistimes this, attempting to loft it over the top but finds the fielder

DJ Bravo c Duminy b Ntini 24 (23m 17b 0x4 2x6) SR: 141.17

West Indies 101/7   DJG Sammy 1* (7b)   M Ntini 3.4-0-15-2
