There were glimpses when the West Indies were in that chase, Gayle was fortunate but got off to a good start, and later Pollard muscled some hope, but really, West Indies were not good enough again. The talent is there, the execution is not.

Gayle predictably is very disappointed but defends the team selection, arguing that it's up to the top five to set the game up, not get more batsmen to shorten the tail.

Smith is more chirpy and says that South Africa will experiment with their side as the look to find the formula that suits them.

Hashim Amla is named man of the match, as well he should be after his superb century.

Liam is finetuning his bulletin so do check that out. I hope you've enjoyed today, the next game is on Monday so please do join us then.

Tsotsobe to Rampaul, OUT, that's it! All over! Comprehensive victory for South Africa. Rampaul tries to smack it down the ground, doesn't get much of it and Smith takes the catch. Gentle high-fives all round for the South African's. Gayle does not look overly amused, but shakes hands with all the opposition players.
