South Africa now have six points, they're fourth in the table and it means West Indies are all-but-out of it and they will need South Africa to lose both matches.

Thanks very much for joining us today, I hope you come back tomorrow where it will be Will and I once more as we follow the fortunes of Bangladesh and England.

49.6

Smith to Collymore, SIX runs

he bashes that one straight, down on one knee, and finishes yet another match with a six.

49.5
1
Smith to Powell, 1 run

driven out to long-off and they stay for the single. Ah, so near...

So the final contest of the day will be: can Powell get his fifty? That's Powell, whose previous highest in this form was 6. Not bad whatever happens.

49.4
1
Smith to Collymore, 1 run

prods and runs, giving him the strike back.

49.3
1
Smith to Powell, 1 run

driven to long-off and that's a single. He just stood there, expecting a boundary and missed out - he could have come back for two. Will he be kicking himself shortly?

49.2
Smith to Powell, no run

backs away, backs away, and Smith follows him, sending it down leg, it's played back out to the covers.

49.2
1w
Smith to Powell, 1 wide

Powell comes down the track and nearly gets himself stumped off a wide. What a fate that would have been.

48.6
Hall to Collymore, no run

up there again and that's driven to the man at long-off

48.6
1w
Hall to Collymore, 1 wide

bouncer, and that's called wide - a touch harsh, maybe

48.5
Hall to Collymore, no run

slower ball, overpitches the would-be yorker and that's a shin-high full toss. They're not easy to deal with, of course, and that was driven to mid-on

48.4
1
Hall to Powell, 1 run

yorker length, well dug out down the ground for a single

48.3
1
Hall to Collymore, 1 run

pushed right up there and that's poked back forward

48.2
Hall to Collymore, no run

defended this time

Hall to Powell, 1 run

right up there and that's driven off the legs in front of midwicket

West Indies are entertaining right to the last (hurrah) here.

"Various theories abound," continues Will (there's no stopping him, "such as shepherds playing it who would hit a stone with their crooks, which was known as a 'cricce'." Tremendous geekage there.

47.6
2
Smith to Collymore, 2 runs

spears that one in at the legs, but it's turned patiently square

47.5
Smith to Collymore, no run

outside off, and the batsman chases that nearly-wide

47.4
1
Smith to Powell, 1 run

taken off the toes and that's swished to midwicket

47.3
2
Smith to Powell, 2 runs

turns that back in at him and it pops up awkwardly; he does well to open the face and without really controlling it, work it down to third man

47.2
6
Smith to Powell, SIX runs

another one! That was like watching a replay, what a great shot. The crowd, needless to say, well you know what they're doing

47.1
6
Smith to Powell, SIX runs

drags that one down and that's a huge shot! Down the track and smashed in front of midwicket
