Aiden Markram1020020.0022200
Lungi Ngidi4048012.00104420
Anrich Nortje403218.0082200
2.1 to E Lewis, chipped to mid-on! Lewis almost undecided whether to go for the lofted drive or keep it down as Nortje bowls full on middle and off, and pays the price by giving it away to mid-on, who has to slightly slide to his right. 27/1
Kagiso Rabada3036112.0042310
3.3 to CH Gayle, edged to de Kock and Gayle departs! Straightened seam and full in the off-stump channel, and Gayle tries to drive by staying rooted in his crease. Gets the outside edge, which the keeper nabs to his left. Two early blows for West Indies here, as Rabada strikes in his first over. 32/2
George Linde401624.00111000
8.6 to SO Hetmyer, Linde strikes! A length ball outside off, Hetmyer goes for the cut but gets an under edge and de Kock just about latches on to it. 63/3
10.5 to LMP Simmons, too full and Simmons misses the sweep only to be struck right in front. No doubt in the umpire's mind. Was hit on the front pad in front of middle and leg. 70/4
Tabraiz Shamsi401323.25151010
13.3 to N Pooran, Shamsi has his man. Fuller on the stumps and Pooran decides to go for the slog sweep, only to top edge it towards deep-backward sqiare leg. van der Dussen settles under it and pouches calmly. 89/5
15.3 to AD Russell, big, big wicket. Fuller on middle and leg and Russell attempts an awkward sweep, taking his eyes off the ball. Gets a top edge that lobs towards short fine leg for the easiest of the catches. 101/6

Fidel Edwards2021010.5034000
Chris Gayle201115.5051010
1.1 to RR Hendricks, Huge stumping appeal - more excitement rather - as the decision goes to the third umpire. Loopy ball on a full length off, and the batter is beaten on his drive. No outside edge there as Hendricks was standing outside leg to make room, and replays indicate his back foot was just about on the brim when the bails came off. The bail looks like completely removed with his foot outside, and Gayle gets a wicket first ball. Some cartwheeling from the evergreen man here. 8/1
Obed McCoy403318.2593121
4.2 to T Bavuma, moves across to Dilscoop it, but it hits his back pad on the full and he's out leg before. Back-of-the-hand ball from McCoy as Bavuma seemed to be completely beaten by the lack of pace and was perhaps too early in his shot. The ball hits him in front of middle and leg, and the South Africa captain is gone. 36/2
Andre Russell403027.50101210
9.1 to AK Markram, knocks back his off stump! Markram gives himself room by taking his front leg across way outside leg, but that was still to close to cut. It was a fullish length ball on off, and Markram is bowled while perhaps getting beaten for pace after the ball also seemed to be slightly angling away after pitching. 62/3
13.3 to DA Miller, Miller departs, West Indies on top. Fuller outside off from Russell, Miller hits it hard but fails to get the elevation. A hop from Gayle at extra cover to pouch it overhead. 94/5
Dwayne Bravo401944.75131100
15.2 to GF Linde, a slower one, length outside off. Linde looks to go over extra cover but ends up slicing it towards point. An easy catch for Simmons. 110/6
17.1 to Q de Kock, de Kock departs. That's the match for West Indies. A wide full toss, de Kock had to reach out for it and all he manages is to steer it straight to Simmons at point. 126/7
17.3 to T Shamsi, Bravo gets his third. Slower again. Fuller outside off and Shamsi looks to go over long-off. Ends up skying it straight up and Gayle settles under it at extra cover. 126/8
17.6 to L Ngidi, Bravo picks up his fourth. Fuller around off and Ngidi swings across only to sky it towards square leg. Simmons runs around and takes a brilliant catch over his shoulder. 127/9
Kieron Pollard402416.0071000
10.4 to HE van der Dussen, an outside and Pooran makes no mistake this time. A length ball, wide outside off, Pollard rolled his fingers over it. van der Dussen chases it and manages only an edge. Pollard is jubilant, he knows the value of this wicket. 75/4
