Dale Steyn821812.25381000
4.4 to D Ganga, gone this time! Another beauty from Steyn who draws him into an injudicious forward poke, the ball taking the outside edge and it loops to Smith at first slip who makes no mistake. 10/1
Makhaya Ntini713024.28294000
12.2 to MN Samuels, gone! He's goddim! Fuller this time and Samuels plays this away from his body, the ball seaming just a touch away from him, and it hands Boucher with the simplest of chances. 26/4
14.1 to S Chanderpaul, gone! West Indies are toast here. Poor shot from Chanderpaul to a decent delivery which angles across him, he nibbles at it and hands a simple catch to second slip. 33/5
Shaun Pollock1123543.18526000
9.1 to RS Morton, got him! A raucous appeal from Pollock who raps Morton on the pad. Morton was cautiously forward on the front foot, the ball cutting back onto him and it looked like it was going down leg...but Dar raised his finger. 11/2
11.4 to BA Parchment, what a catch! That's a quite remarkable catch from Gibbs. Parchment drives, it takes a thick outside edge and flies to Gibbs' right at gully who dives, spectacularly, and plucks it one-handed above his head and to his right. Quite brilliant. 22/3
17.6 to DJ Bravo, good catch again from Gibbs. A nasty, vicious ball from Pollock which bounces off a good length and he fends this off to Gibbs' right who keeps low, moving quickly to his right, diving, and taking his second fine catch of the morning. 57/6
29.4 to JE Taylor, incredible catch at deep backward square! A short ball from Pollock and Taylor never got over it, but Steyn had to make good ground and scooped the ball off the turf with a full-length sprawling dive. Very nicely done indeed, and Pollock has four on his comeback. 116/8
Andre Nel6.304536.92207000
21.4 to D Ramdin, pushes forward and the ball takes a thick outside edge; Gibbs takes another fine catch at gully, taking it low off his bootstraps to his right. 74/7
34.1 to DJG Sammy, ... and Smith persists with good reason! In the slot from Nel, and a very loose drive from Sammy, who's played so well so far. Smith himself takes an awkward catch, climbing towards his chest at first slip, and the end of the innings is nigh. 139/9
34.3 to FH Edwards, short, a hopeless defensive slog-smear, for what of a better description, and a simple edge through to Boucher. 139/10

Daren Powell26112814.9210021000
8.4 to HH Gibbs, a stunned silence greets the first wicket of the innings. Short, but not that short, and Gibbs under-edges a smeared pull onto his leg stump. He looks up in incredulity, but it's too late to save his innings. 53/1
Fidel Edwards23012905.609023100
Jerome Taylor2539213.6810614000
52.4 to GC Smith, well, well the collapse is on. Maybe not, but West Indies have another as Taylor pitches up outside off stump and brings a thick edge from Smith, Ramdin dives across in front of first slip to pouch a safe catch and both overnight batsman are now gone. 252/3
Daren Sammy25410414.1610217000
51.4 to HM Amla, out of nowhere a wicket, on the stumps and Amla closes the face of the bat as he tries to turn into the leg side. The edge flies to silly mid-off where Dwayne Bravo holds a sharp catch to end a stand of 199. 252/2
Marlon Samuels2109014.28779100
81.4 to JH Kallis, the sucker punch, wide, Kallis looks to cut/slash that behind square but gets a top edge and Morton holds a sharp chance, albeit at an ideal height. Utter silnce other than whooping from the fielding side. 374/4

Dale Steyn21.567263.2910313000
14.6 to BA Parchment, got him, and I'm afraid that was inevitable. The outswingers set him up, this one pitched just outside, nipped back, and would have taken out middle and leg. West Indies have lost their first wicket of the innings. 33/1
65.6 to DJ Bravo, oh dear, that's what breaks can do to the concentration. That was angled towards leg stump, but not as far off target as Bravo thought. Played right across the line, and that's a fair decision. 232/4
82.3 to MN Samuels, bowled him! What a beauty from Steyn, an absolute corker though his celebration is completely unnecessary. It angled into Samuels before straightening; Samuels tried to turn it to leg but it clipped the off stump. Unplayable. 292/6
84.4 to DJG Sammy, got him! Angling into his pads but straightening on him at the last moment, and Sammy tried to turn it to leg but gets a leading edge which flies straight back to the bowler. 305/7
84.6 to DBL Powell, gone! Another brilliant delivery from Steyn, Powell trying to play to leg but beaten for pace. It was straight, and very fast, and much too good for him. 305/8
86.5 to FH Edwards, bowled him and South Africa have beaten the West Indies by an innings. A brilliant ball to a tailender - too fast, too straight. 317/9
Makhaya Ntini2049514.758418000
19.1 to D Ganga, outside off, a firm but unnecessary push off the back foot, and Jacques Kallis at second slip plucks the simplest of chances. Another one goes, and now it's trouble for West Indies. 49/2
Shaun Pollock1745012.94818001
25.2 to RS Morton, done him like a kipper, and that's justice! Morton shoulders arms to a straight delivery that zips back into him, and strikes him on the back leg in front of middle. That would have taken the bails, and Pollock has his first of the innings. 88/3
Andre Nel1726713.947312000
76.3 to D Ramdin, short and wide, and there's the breakthrough! There was no need to play at that, and he didn't really play at all - just wafted it through with his feet stuck in the crease.. 273/5
