10.45pm: Thanks for sticking with us through the delays, folks, that's your lot for tonight. We'll be back to bring you all-singing, all-dancing fingertip-tapping coverage of the second ODI on Sunday - until then, it's goodnight and good luck from Alex and myself. Cheerio
10.35pm: Here we go with the garlands, then. Mike Haysman calls up West Indies captain Jason Holder: "We made a start but lost our way in the middle. That's the nature of Chris, he's a counter-attacking batsman, he gave us a decent start but SA got the better of us. It's a problem we've been having for a period of time, we've got to try and correct it. [First captaincy taste] It's been pretty good, a good challenge, we felt they were getting away from us but managed to fight back. We need to cut out the bad balls and to rotate the strike a bit better next time."
South Africa captain AB de Villiers is named Man of the Match: "We did well after the first ten overs, it wasn't easy, credit to Hash. I'm a bit embarrassed with the Man-of-the-Match award, I thought David Miller played much better. But I've got to give myself some credit, it was good to get in and get some partnerships. [Miller] played like he was on a different wicket today, he was the best batter and played an exceptional knock. Morne van Wyk is an incredible player, we'd love to give him a go but he's not in the World Cup squad so we want to give those guys a go, JP Duminy, Rilee Roussouw. So I'll take it on the chin and keep until Quinton can come back. Rilee will be the extra top-order batsman, so he's getting some practice. Other than me taking the gloves, it's pretty much our first team. Everyone bowled well in partnerships, never easy bowling to guys like Gayle, Samuels, Sammy. The guys were mature, showed some variation, Immy was the stand-out but everyone around him bowled exceptionally well. Always a great crowd at the Bullring, we love entertaining in Johannesburg. West Indies can beat anyone on their day, we'll try and do the basics well for a long period of time and try to hit our straps."
10.25pm: So, Steyn ends up with three wickets, like Tahir and Philander, but there's no doubt that his first - Chris Gayle - was the most important. West Indies might have benefited from the rain reducing the number of overs they had to bat - and they've proved how much they love the short stuff, chasing 236 in 20 overs a few days ago - but no one could stick around after Gayle's brief burst first up. They did well to drag the game back after South Africa were 238 for 3 in the 40th over but reverted to type with the bat. All in all, a tough day for the debutant captain, Jason Holder. His counterpart, AB de Villiers, meanwhile finished with four catches and a stumping to sit alongside 81 runs.
Tahir off after one over, Steyn back
"Every time Imran Tahir gets a wicket, he waves to someone in the crowd, will cricinfo tell us who is he waving?" We would if we knew, Zain. Sadly, we are not omniscient, despite appearances
Back comes Morne Morkel
Yep, just six overs to bowl now. West Indies need 72 (so the target is revised to 225)
Imran Tahir is going to return, he has a couple of overs left, potentially. Seems like we may have lost another over, with that brief delay
And now the umpires pull up the stumps, they're heading off, on come the groundsmen... Oh, hold up, it's a do-si-do, the players are being called back on, looks like the shower has swept through faster than you can say "West Indies have blown this". We're continuing apace.
The rain is coming down again at Kingsmead... D/L par score at the end of this over is 187
Danny got a clear view on that Russell dismissal: "Absolutely mindless batting!! Where have their brains gone to??"
Here's Ajit: "I can't believe Clive Lloyd's assertion that Bravo and Pollard were not performing (by that criteria there were many others that could have been left out). How is this game even being played at the moment? The WI team should go on strike again and forfeit all WC matches. We are watching a deliberately diluted contest, and the blame for that lies squarely on the petty despotism of the WI board."
Jason Holder, the captain, is out in the middle. Tough gig for him
