South Africa take on West Indies on the third day of the second of the three-match Test series at St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Sunday. Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers are on the crease batting on 23 and nine respectively with the score reading 289 for the loss of three.

South Africa started the second day on a good note after first day’s good play on 270 for the loss of two wickets. Faf du Plessis hit a boundary off the first ball of the day by Jerome Taylor as he brought up his fourth Test century.

However, the very next ball from the same man saw him returning back to pavilion as a good length ball was faintly edged straight to wicketkeeper-skipper, Denesh Ramdin. Initially given not out by the on-field umpire,  the DRS came to good use and du Plessis was on his way.

Earlier, West Indies had won the toss and put South Africa to bat first on the first day as South Africa we on a roll following a brilliant century from opener, Dean Elgar for 121.

Brief Scores:

South Africa 289 for 3 (Dean Elgar 121, Faf du Plessis 103; Kenroy Peters 1 for 44, Jerome Taylor 1 for 74) vs West Indies.
