Presentations coming up...
The bowlers just had a day to forget, over 500 runs were scored in the game. Despite that Windies will be disappointed they could not defend it but take anything away from a stellar performance by the hosts.
Quinton de Kock was in full flow, he hit the ball all around the park and Reeza played as the perfect foil to him. De Kock's ton laid the foundation for his side to chase a big score down and the rest did their job to ensure a record-breaking win.
What a win, what a fantastic chase, a record chase from the hosts to level the series. When Windies ended their innings at 258 courtesy of a ton from Charles, we felt they have batted the hosts out of the game but South Africa had different ideas.

COMMENTARY

End of over

SA258/5 (20.0 Ovs)

Can't really write a lot about a side which has conceded over 12 per over. All their bowlers were taken to the cleaners. Except for Rabada all went for over 10 per over. Jansen could be happy with the three wickets he got but he too was taken to the cleaners. This is probably not what Markram would have imagined after winning the toss. Now it is onto their batters, if they chase it down, it is going to be the highest chase ever. Can they do it? We will find out.
What carnage! Wow! Brilliant from the Windies. Let me remind you, they lost a wicket in the first over but since then, it has been all about them. It was Kyle Mayers and Johnson Charles who just went after the bowlers right from the word go. The two smashesd the ball all around the park and added 135 in no time. Both crossed half tons. Kyle Mayers fell but Johnson Charles continued.he along with Powell put up another lovely stand. Johnson Charles ended up scoring the fastest ton in this format for his side. Once he fell, it was the Romario Shepherd show and he helped his side cross the 250-run mark.

End of over

SA259/4 (18.5 Ovs)

Right then, that is it from the thriller of a game. The series is leveled now and the two teams will play a decider on Tuesday, 28th of March. The game will begin at 9.30 pm IST (4.00 pm GMT). Until then, take care, and cheers!
Aiden Markram the skipper of South Africa says that it feels good to win the game. Adds that there are things to improve on and they will keep on trying to do that. Ends by saying that the crowd was amazing as well and it was a great game.
Quinton de Kock is the player of the match for his amazing knock. He says that the opening stand was quite special and it is good to win the game. He says that they just picked the right options and kept it simple. Adds that the pitch had everything for the batters and he took advantage of it. Ends by saying that it is a special knock and they will look to win the series.
Rovman Powell the skipper of West Indies says that it was a crazy game. Adds that Quinton de Kock was amazing and they will look to bounce back. He says that Johnson Charles was exceptional as well and the guys are going in the right direction. Ends by saying that its hard to take this defeat but they will look to bounce back and come back stronger.
Presentations coming up...
The bowlers just had a day to forget, over 500 runs were scored in the game. Despite that Windies will be disappointed they could not defend it but take anything away from a stellar performance by the hosts.
Quinton de Kock was in full flow, he hit the ball all around the park and Reeza played as the perfect foil to him. De Kock's ton laid the foundation for his side to chase a big score down and the rest did their job to ensure a record-breaking win.
What a win, what a fantastic chase, a record chase from the hosts to level the series. When Windies ended their innings at 258 courtesy of a ton from Charles, we felt they have batted the hosts out of the game but South Africa had different ideas.
