South Africa v West Indies

South Africa won by 20 runs

5.5

Benn to Smith, OUT, he has manufactured one shot too many, makes room again, finds the ball a bit short, goes through with the shot, the thick outside edge lobs it to backward point

GC Smith c Fletcher b Benn 31 (29m 18b 6x4 0x6) SR: 172.22

South Africa 54/1   JH Kallis 22* (17b 3x4 1x6)   SJ Benn 0.5-0-9-1

11.5

Simmons to Kallis, OUT, Kallis is gone, looks for the big straight hit, times it well, but doesn't get enough power and picks out long-on

JH Kallis c Pollard b Simmons 45 (50m 31b 6x4 1x6) SR: 145.16

South Africa 105/2   HH Gibbs 28* (22b 5x4)   LMP Simmons 0.5-0-7-1

14.4

Pollard to Gibbs, OUT, they've got Gibbs, against the run of the play, got too close to this one, was looking to clear midwicket, but didn't get enough elevation, and Taylor holds on to an easy catch

HH Gibbs c Taylor b Pollard 55 (27m 35b 8x4 1x6) SR: 157.14

South Africa 136/3   AB de Villiers 4* (4b)   KA Pollard 2.4-0-27-1

16.2

Taylor to de Villiers, OUT, big wicket again, Gayle keeps his cool wearing those yellow-rimmed glasses, AB makes room and goes for the big hit down the ground, splices it to the orbit, Gayle at extra cover gets under it and holds on to it, finally those glasses are working

AB de Villiers c Gayle b Taylor 17 (15m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 170.00

South Africa 155/4   JA Morkel 6* (4b 1x4)   JE Taylor 2.2-0-22-1

16.6

Taylor to Morkel, OUT, bowled him, yorker, base of off, lovely bowling, Albie looks to make room and play it behind square but is late on it. Will these wickets slow SA down?

JA Morkel b Taylor 10 (10m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

South Africa 159/5   MV Boucher 0* (0b)   JE Taylor 3-0-26-2

17.4

Edwards to Duminy, OUT, another wicket, golden duck for Duminy, and a dot ball, Edwards goes for the bouncer, Duminy pulls, gets a top edge, Sarwan doesn't pick it to begin with at deep fine leg, but recovers to hold on to it low to his left

JP Duminy c Sarwan b Edwards 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 163/6   MV Boucher 3* (3b)   FH Edwards 2.4-0-18-1

18.2

Taylor to van der Merwe, OUT, another one goes down, VDM plays like only he can, his head falling away and slogging big, gets a top edge that goes nowhere but straight up into the sky, another dot ball too

RE van der Merwe c †Ramdin b Taylor 1 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

South Africa 166/7   MV Boucher 4* (4b)   JE Taylor 3.2-0-26-3
