At Basseterre, St Kitts, June 15, 2016 (day/night). South Africa won by 139 runs. South Africa 5pts. Toss: West Indies.
Imran Tahir took seven for 45 - the best figures for South Africa in one-day internationals, beating Rabada's six for 16 against Bangladesh at Mirpur in 2015 - as West Indies got nowhere near the biggest total of the competition. Amla had led the charge, racing to his 23rd ODI hundred in an opening stand of 182 with de Kock. Morris, promoted to No. 3, and du Plessis then combined beauty with brutality: 105 came in the final ten overs, as the bowling wilted. West Indies had never successfully chased more than 300, though their openers gave them another decent start, putting on 69 in nine overs. But Fletcher swung Tahir to deep midwicket, and Shamsi - rivalling his fellow spinner for celebratory exuberance - removed Charles and Ramdin to make it 121 for four. The innings did not truly disintegrate, however, until Tahir returned for his third spell. He collected three wickets in an over, and four in nine balls, and finished the match in his next over, giving him the third-best analysis by a spinner in ODIs, behind Shahid Afridi (seven for 12 for Pakistan against West Indies at Providence in 2013)
