South Africa won by 86 runs

Player Of The Match
Full commentary

And that ends a fairly ordinary game of cricket. South Africa played well and deserved their 86-run win, but they were hardly tested once the early new-ball burst was over. West Indies just showed nothing in their reply, it was a depressing advert for sport, really, which is meant to about teams going all-out to win. South Africa bowled well, for sure, but they were under no pressure. Morkel's performance was eye-catching as he got bounce and carry and he has a big future ahead of him.

So South Africa lead the series 2-0 with three to play and the next match is in Port Elizabeth on Sunday. It's a day game, so please do join us for that. For now, from Andrew McGlashan and Martin Williamson, it's goodnight.

Morkel to Taylor, OUT

gone, and that's the match for South Africa although we knew the outcome of this game a long while along. Taylor swings the ball high to mid-on where Steyn back-peddles for the catch...a career-best for Morne Morkel, a fine effort as he continues his recovery from injury

Langeveldt to Taylor, 1 run

oh dear, in every sense of the word...Taylor slams the ball to mid off and sprints down for single, Edwards doesn't move but Kallis's throw is not being backed up and Edwards has time to canter through to the other end

Langeveldt to Taylor, no run

misses leg stump by a coat of varnish as Taylor tries to flick through the leg side

Langeveldt to Taylor, no run

defended back to the bowler

Langeveldt to Chanderpaul, OUT

gone! Chanderpaul's plainly odd - and poor - innings comes to end with a tame flick to midwicket. He never seemed to know what he was doing, and neither did anyone else

Shivnarine Chanderpaul c Botha b Langeveldt 54 (116m 83b 5x4 0x6) SR: 65.06
Langeveldt to Chanderpaul, no run

driven confidently through extra cover, but it exposes Edwards again

Langeveldt is back, can he wrap up the innings?
