Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Rilee Rossouw, 2.4 ov), 2-16 (Faf du Plessis, 4.5 ov), 3-115 (Hashim Amla, 19.2 ov), 4-238 (David Miller, 39.1 ov), 5-246 (AB de Villiers, 40.5 ov), 6-262 (Farhaan Behardien, 43.3 ov), 7-271 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 45.2 ov), 8-272 (Vernon Philander, 47.1 ov)
2.4 to RR Rossouw, cleaned up! Stumps are demolished as Taylor plays all round a full delivery which is angled in from around the wicket, some late swing as well, and no footwork from Rossouw. Another duck for him. 5/1
4.5 to F du Plessis, and another! Full, straight, du Plessis playing across the line and given. There was a brief chat about using the review, but he decides against it. Good variation from Taylor, this one dipping in late, and it actually took the back pad so didn't have far to travel. 16/2
39.1 to DA Miller, full and wide of off stump, driven at and he slices it straight to deep point. Miller was reaching for it a little, head in the air slightly and it flew straight to the fielder a few yards in from the boundary who pouched a safe catch. 238/4
45.2 to JP Duminy, bumper, Duminy goes to hook and gets a glove to the keeper! Duminy walks straight off. Excellent short ball, over middle and leg, it got big on Duminy who was late on the stroke and got a little touch on it to Ramdin who had a simple catch to take. 271/7
47.1 to VD Philander, full delivery wide of off stump, swung at over the off side, gets it's high but nowhere near long enough and deep cover takes the catch! Another wicket, what a collapse this is. Philander feeling the pressure, trying to smash this away down the ground but it squirted off a thick outside edge and flew down deep cover's throat. 272/8
40.5 to AB de Villiers, down the track, not to the pitch of the ball at all, drags it leg side and in the air and finds long-on! A second quick breakthrough. De Villiers limping off with cramp, did injury force this stroke? A horrid hack in the end, nowhere near the desired connection and it was well held by the fielder going to his right hand side, smart catch. 246/5

Fall of wickets: 1-51 (Chris Gayle, 5.4 ov), 2-53 (Leon Johnson, 6.5 ov), 3-85 (Marlon Samuels, 12.6 ov), 4-89 (Dwayne Smith, 14.6 ov), 5-118 (Jonathan Carter, 20.5 ov), 6-126 (Daren Sammy, 22.6 ov), 7-148 (Andre Russell, 24.5 ov), 8-161 (Denesh Ramdin, 26.6 ov), 9-164 (Jason Holder, 28.1 ov), 10-164 (Jerome Taylor, 28.2 ov)
6.5 to LR Johnson, hit on the knee roll and Philander is very keen, the umpire shakes his head but South Africa immediately review... This could be sticky for Johnson, it pitched on leg stump and straightened a touch, height looks okay; there's a moment to check for the inside edge but you can see daylight. Hawk-Eye says it would have hit middle three-quarters of the way up - Johnson is a goner, S Ravi raises his finger at the second opportunity. 53/2
22.6 to DJG Sammy, is anyone going to appeal for this? De Villiers turns around as he takes the catch and celebrates, Philander starts walking back... Eventually sticks up a questioning hand, at de Villiers' prompting, and umpire Ravi raises his finger. Sammy tried to cut off the back foot, got a big deflection off the shoulder of the bat... but he wasn't walking until he was told to. 126/6
24.5 to AD Russell, bumper, thin edge, gottim! Russell burns brightly and briefly, as too many have for West Indies, tried hit the cover off it again, swinging wildly at a short ball outside off, totally off balance and snicks through to de Villiers. 148/7
5.4 to CH Gayle, got him, another wild hack and this time de Villiers pouches the edge! The storm has blown itself out, somewhat injudicious from Gayle, he'd already got the innings off to a blistering start but he kept taking on Steyn and finally falls. 51/1
28.1 to JO Holder, length ball, another giddy swing, top-edged high, high, high into the sky... and David Miller takes an excellent catch back-pedalling in the covers. South Africa are almost home and hosed. 164/9
28.2 to JE Taylor, there it is, dabs in the channel and nicks through to de Villiers! Steyn started the wicket-taking and he finishes it with two in two to give South Africa a 61-run win (D/L method). 164/10
14.6 to DR Smith, slider again, deceives the batsman once more and this time plumb lbw! Smith back on his stumps, done by the quicker pace, he was playing all around his and struck right smack bang in front of all three, umpire Ravi gave it out immediately. 89/4
20.5 to JL Carter, nicely bowled, a googly, Carter is fooled and beaten outside off and is he stumped here? Carter tumbled forward, did he tumble out of his ground? AB de Villiers is very confident. The replay seems inconclusive as to whether anything is grounded over the line. Tough call for the third umpire but from the stump cam it doesn't look as if Carter gets any boot back. Indeed not, he's out! Lovely bit of bowling again from Tahir, the googly takes one this time. Smart stumping from de Villiers. 118/5
26.6 to D Ramdin, tossed up a little straighter, Ramdin tries to heave to leg again, this straightens and clatters the stumps! Ramdin is done, played his slog-sweep over the top of the ball. Tahir does a baby-rocking celebration toward the stands. 161/8
