Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Morne van Wyk, 1.1 ov), 2-5 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 1.2 ov), 3-5 (AB de Villiers, 1.6 ov), 4-5 (Herschelle Gibbs, 2.1 ov), 5-10 (Shaun Pollock, 3.4 ov), 6-12 (Albie Morkel, 5.1 ov), 7-22 (Vernon Philander, 7.2 ov), 8-37 (Gulam Bodi, 10.6 ov)
2.1 to HH Gibbs, carnage, South Africa are in tatters, Gibbs flicked a full ball uppishly towards the right of the fielder at mid-on, it was nearly past Chanderpaul when he dived full length to his right and caught the ball one-handed inches from the ground, fabulous catch. 5/4
1.1 to MN van Wyk, Taylor can bowl pretty quick but he starts with a perfectly directed slower ball, van Wyk tries to flick but gets beaten by the change of pace, he gets hit on the pad in front of middle and leg, that looked out. 5/1
1.2 to JP Duminy, bang, two in two, what a sensational start from Taylor, he pitches the ball full on off stump, it's nearly in the blockhole, Duminy tried to drive at it but was beaten for pace, the off stump goes for a walk. 5/2
1.6 to AB de Villiers, he's got another one! It was another slower ball, de Villiers tried to defend it on the back foot, the ball hit the bat but bounced onto the stumps after hitting the ground, Taylor has bowled a triple-wicket maiden, absolutely stunning. 5/3
7.2 to VD Philander, Edwards gets into the act! He bowls a slower ball that cuts back into the right-hander, Philander is stuck on his crease and he tries to drive, he gets hit on the pad in front of middle and leg stump, that's plumb. 22/7
10.6 to GH Bodi, bowled him! Bodi tries to pull another one, the length isn't short enough and he gets beaten for pace, Sammy has a second look because he isn't sure if the ball has hit the stumps but it has indeed. 37/8

TOTAL9.5 Ov (RR: 6.10, 44 Mins)60/5
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Brenton Parchment, 0.6 ov), 2-32 (Devon Smith, 3.3 ov), 3-39 (Runako Morton, 5.1 ov), 4-41 (Marlon Samuels, 5.5 ov), 5-41 (Dwayne Bravo, 5.6 ov)
0.6 to BA Parchment, I spoke too soon, Parchment tries to force Pollock over the off side, the ball isn't short enough to free his arms and he hits it straight to Duminy at cover, that's the end of Parchment's cameo. 10/1
3.3 to DS Smith, Steyn follows the slower ball with the fast yorker, it swings back late into the left hander, Smith is too late on the drive and the ball uproots off stump, excellent fast bowling. 32/2
5.1 to RS Morton, this is exemplary fast bowling, Steyn fires in another yorker, it sears into Morton's pads, ricochets and knocks off stump out of the ground, he is pumped. 39/3
5.5 to MN Samuels, Steyn is giving that off stump a real pounding, after two extremely quick deliveries Steyn foxes Samuels with a slower one, Samuels had backed away to hit it through the off side was too early on the shot, he was no doubt expecting a much faster one and lost his off stump. 41/4
5.6 to DJ Bravo, Bravo has no defense to another fierce yorker, he moves across his stumps, the ball grazes the tip of his boot before knocking off and middle stump out of the ground once again, Dale Steyn is loving it and West Indies are stuttering. 41/5
