24.2 to AD Russell, heave and a miss! Another West Indies let down by a horrid shot. He was going nicely, then decides to swipe across the line of a length ball which takes the top of leg stump. Where do these shots come from? What is thought process?. 83/6
1.1 to DR Smith, good length, swings away a bit, takes a thin outside edge and caught behind! What a start for Philander, right on the mark, great length, Smith coming forward to play around middle and off stumps but it swung away just enough to take the outside edge and carried low to de Villiers who got down well to take the catch. 5/1
3.4 to CH Gayle, fuller and touch wider, Gayle tries to drive this and nicks it behind! Loose drive from Gayle, beaten by a bit of away movement and it's a thin edge through to de Villiers. Huge wicket, classic bowling from Big Vern. 6/2
29.2 to JE Taylor, and another! Simple stuff from Philander, a straight delivery which nips back a little, perhaps, just keeps a touch low, but Taylor is on the back foot and is struck on the back leg. Hitting middle of middle.. 96/9
8.6 to N Deonarine, back of a length just outside off, Deonarine tries to back to leg and uppercut but get a thick edge to first slip, Amla can only parry it at first slip but de Villiers reacts to take the catch! The 150th ODI wicket for Steyn. The delivery got a bit big on the batsman and he was rather wafting it. Amla had to leap up over his right shoulder to get two hands on it but did so, couldn't cling on but his captain was on hand to mop up. 33/3
12.3 to D Ramdin, full length just outside off, Ramdin pokes at it and drags it on! No foot movement, Ramdin trying to run it down to third man, gets there a little too soon - this wicket is a touch slow - he gets a thick inside edge into middle and off stumps. 43/4
16.5 to MN Samuels, he's lofted into the deep again! Came down the pitch, think he was aiming leg side but there was a hint of turn and it took the thick outer part of the bat and flew to long off. Was a very well judged catch as the rope was fairly close. But another (yet another) reckless shot from Samuels. 52/5
25.2 to JL Carter, given lbw. He went to pull a short ball which skidded on and struck the back leg. Carter reviewed and my gut was that this didn't look out at first glance. Turned a fair bit. Missing leg? Oh, it's clipping leg! The decision will stand.. 87/7
28.5 to CR Brathwaite, bigger appeal! This looked better, another googly which catches him on the crease and this time de Villiers agrees to the review. Has it turned too much? No, it hasn't! It crashes full into the top of leg stump. Good call from captain and bowler. 95/8
33.4 to SJ Benn, and that is that...changes down the pitch, head in the air, misses his swing to the leg side and provides an easy stumping chance. A fitting way to end the innings, frankly.. 122/10

5.4 to RR Rossouw, back of a length and pulled, total miscue, it goes straight up and taken by mid-off. Wasn't short enough for the pull, Rossouw late on the stroke too and slapped it straight up in the air and an easy catch pouched. 27/1
