Chris Gayle is dismissed for 90 (42), not before he set Johannesburg on fire as he falls 10 runs short of his  second T20I century. Gayle’s innings comes after South Africa had set a target of 232, after  their skipper Faf du Plessis scored his maiden T20I century. Gayle has gone after the bowling right from the beginning and has been supported at the other end by Marlon Samuels, who is batting on a half-century.

Gayle has scored nine fours and seven sixes in his innings so far and he looks like staying right till the end to ensure that his side post a win. He has taking a liking to all the bowlers and has not spared anyone.

West Indies toiled hard in the field earlier after they were sent on a leather hunt following a brilliant century by du Plessis and a quick-fire 47 by David Miller. West Indies need over 60 runs to win the match and lead the three-match series 2-0.
