South Africa rout West Indies by 69 runs in the third and final Twenty20 International at Durban. David Wiese starred with the ball for South Africa picking up a maiden fifer. West Indies had begun well in the powerplay going at over nine runs an over but the introduction of  Wiese into the attack turned the match on its head as the West Indies innings abruptly lost steam. No one barring Lendl Simmons could get the ball away consistently and his wicket for 49 was probably the final nail in the coffin. West Indies however are winners of the T20I series by a two-one margin. Morne van Wyk receives the man of the match award for his maiden T20I hundred. The man of the series award goes to Chris Gayle for two fantastic innings in the first two matches that were instrumental in West Indies winning the series.

South Africa are on top in the third Twenty20 International against West Indies at Durban. Defending a mammoth 195, South Africa began poorly as Lendl Simmons carted them to all corners of the park during the powerplay. He took a special liking to Wayne Parnell who conceded 23 runs from his first over. But David Wiese and Aaron Phangiso have turned the match in the favour of the hosts with three quick wickets before Parnell joined in the fun dismissing Andre Fletcher. The wicket should give the left armer some much needed confidence.

West Indies are on the charge chasing 196 in the third Twenty20 International against South Africa. Lendl Simmons replaced Chris Gayle for the final game but the void hasn’t been felt by the West Indies as Simmons is striking the ball kile a dream. Simmons took West Indies to 57 in the powerplay. South Africa had ended their powerplay at 62 for no loss. West Indies lost only the wicket of Dwayne Smith for a scratchy five in the final over of the powerplay. He was bowled by Aaron Phangiso.

Morne van Wyk  carried his bat to power South Africa to 195 for three in their 20 overs against West Indies at Durban. Van Wyk registered his maiden Twenty20 International hundred in the process, finishing with an unbeaten 114 for 70 balls. The opening pair put together a stand of 111 which was crucial to South Africa’s successful stint with the bat. All bowlers took a bit of a hammering as they consistently missed their lengths and South Africa peppered the short square boundary. West Indies have been set a herculean task of chasing 195 and that without Chris Gayle.

South Africa are on the charge in the third Twenty20 International at Durban against West Indies. The South African openers have taken full toll off the loose bowling dished out and have been helped along by some sloppy fielding. The pitch has turned out be a beauty to bat on and the West Indies have missed their lengths consistently. South Africa have already hit eight boundaries and four sixes in their brief innings. The South African openers are peppering the short square boundary at Durban.

West Indies have won the toss and elected to field in the third Twenty20 International at Durban. West Indies have made as many as four changes to their side with the big disappointment being the resting of Chris Gayle. Jean Paul Duminy returns for South Africa at the expense of David Miller who is suffering from a back problem. The omission of Gayle  may even things out a little but the West Indies still look a formidable outfit in the shortest format of the game.

South Africa take on West Indies in the third and final T20I at Durban after losing the opening two matches comprehensively. Skipper Faf du Plessis scored his maiden T20I century in the last game, but half-centuries from Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels got West Indies over the line as they won by four wickets with four balls to spare. Read the preview for the third T20I

West Indies had earlier in the tour lost the three-Test series 2-0 and now are on the verge of a clean sweep in the T20I series. Chris Gayle has had a brilliant tournament so far after scoring 77 in the first game and a match-winning knock on 90 in the second game. Marlon Samuels managed to support Gayle in in both the games and the duo will look to cash in on their good form even in the third game. Jason Holder was brilliant in the first game and Dwayne Bravo managed to control the Proteas’ onslaught to a certain extent in the second game.

As far as South Africa is concerned, they have again performed well in every department but have been outclassed by West Indies in both the games. Skipper du Plessis’ absence will surely hurt South Africa. Justin Ontong takes charge of this game. Their bowling in the earlier match was abysmal as everyone went for over 10 runs an over and the most expensive among them was the frontline seamer Kyle Abbott, who had an economy rate of 17.

Rare Dot ball. Good start by de Lange. Single to Smith. One run to Simmons now. Dot again. Another single. Dot ball. Great over in the context, just three runs came off it.



Wayne Parnell into the attack and starts poorly with a wide down the leg side. Starying on to the pads again, inexplicable with a short fine-leg in place, and that’s FOUR to Lendl Simmons. Dot ball, down the wicket went Simmons looking to unsettle Parnell but failed to connect, came on too quickly onto the bat. SIX! Into the crowd over long and West Indies are well on their way, that’s an unbelievable shot, used the crease well, went right back to make the shot possibler. FOUR! Length ball on leg stump, dealt with appropriately, hit to the square fence. ANOTHER FOUR! Finesse this time but poor bowling again, Parnell is bowling on both sides of the wicket, providing width on that occasion with the third man up. FOUR AGAIN! Swiveled onto the back foot, helped it along to fine leg. 23 runs from that parnell over.


marchant de Lange to share the new ball. He is seriously quick. On the pads, just a single though, leg bye. WIDE! Missing his line here de Lange. FOUR! Over cover, Simmons is a flamboyant player, and that’s well hit over cover. Another WIDE! Dot ball, good ball that, quick and tested the middle of the pitch, hit the bat rather than bat hitting ball. SIX! What a response from Simmons, picked it up off a length over mid-wicket. A single to follow. Another leg bye to conclude a good second over for West Indies. 15 runs came off it.


Kyle Abbott to start proceedings for South Africa. It will be a relief to not see Chirs Gayle taking guard and smashing it into the stands from the word go. Single to start, down to long on. Interesting field set for Smith. Dot ball. Another dot to the Gayle’s replacement Lendl Simmons. No run again. A couple for Simmons to get off the mark. Dot ball to finish by Abbott. Good first over.















Van wyk on 99. Bravo to bowl the last over of the innings. NO BALL! for height, above the waist. That’s it, works it to the on side for a single to bring up a maiden T20I hundred, that’s the second for South Africa this series, third overall. SIX! Duminy uses his feet beautifully to help it over long on with just a flick of the wrists, what a return to International cricket for the left hander! Just a single. Three balls to go. SIX! Over the short cover boundary for his sixth hit over the fence, great batting by van Wyk. SIX! Full Toss, South Africa finishing with a flurry of sixes, closing in on the 200-run mark. Down to long on for a couple, didn’t get that off the middle van Wyk but that was what the doctored ordered for South Africa, a staggering 23 runs came from that over. South Africa finish at 195 for three. This will take some getting specially with no Chris Gayle.


van Wyk to face the first ball of the 19th. A couple to start. FOUR! Straight down the ground, van Wyk into the 90’s now. BANG, SIX onto the grass banks, just three short of a maiden T20I hundred. Single, onto 98 now. peunultimate ball of the penultimate over coming up. Rilee Rossouw on strike. WICKET! Charges but the bowler digs it in well, bit of a top edge, went high up in the air and the keeper called and pouched it. Rossouw perishes for the cause. Van Wyk on 98 and gets a run to conclude the 19th.
OUT! Rilee Rossouw 0 (1) K Fletcher B Cottrell


Dwayne Bravo into the attack, the death over specialist. Single to van Wyk. FOUR! Wiese gets one away over cover, poor ball, width offered.Single to third man this time, another poor delivery but Wiese unable to capitalise this time, perhaps its a tactic to bowl very wide off Wiese’s off stump. Dot ball, that’s gold at this stage. Just a single, van Wyk seems to be tiring here. Something’s going to give and WICKET! Perfect yorker tailing into the batsman and David Wiese’s innings comes to an end. The experiment of Wiese at number three hasn’t worked.There was more expected off him.
OUT! David Wiese 21 (16) B Bravo


Cottrell back to bowl the 17th over. Single to van Wyk. Just a single again, Wiese is trying to smash the cover off the ball but he has struggled to find any timing. South Africa have lost steam here. A brace down to deep cover. FOUR! Van Wyk still finding the occasional boundary. South Africa need plenty more. Over cover again, more elevation than distance though , enough to get three, good effort on the boundary to save a run. That’s fantastic fielding, West Indies are making up for earlier lapses with some superb ground fielding on the boundary, a certain boundary saved there by Ashley Nurse.


Andre Russel into the attack. Single to deep mid-wicket to start. Clipped to square-leg for one again second ball. Dot ball. Another Dot, rare consecutive Dot. Wiese drills it to long on for six. Wiese hasn’t managed to tee off yet. Not sure what he was sent in for. FOUR! Much needed for South Africa, width offer to van Wyk and he obliges. West indies have pegged the run-rate back though.


Kieron Pollard into the attack, a giant of a man who bowls slower than my grand mother, but does a fair job for the West Indies. Single to start. single. Single. WICKET! The slower you bowl the more effective you are on this Durban pitch. Reeza Hendricks skies it straight down deep mid-wicket’s throat. End of a brilliant opening partnership. David Wiese is the new man, with a license to go hammer and tongs from the outset. Dot ball to van Wyk. A single to end a successful 13th over. Good start byPollard.
OUT! Reeza Hendricks 42 (32) C Smith B Pollard


Marlon Samuels to continue. The slower bowlers have put the brakes on the scoring a little. Single, that’s the hundred up for South africa and the opening pair. Another one. FOUR! It had been a while, lofted over cover off the back foot by van Wyk. Single, South African are rotating the strike when they aren’t hitting fours left right and center. Single. Single to end the over as well. Nine of the over.


Bravo to continue in the 11th over. Just a single to van Wyk who brought up his second T20I fifty in the previous over. Another one, to hendricks this time. Bravo changing the pace of the ball well, also the pace of the game. Dot ball, Bravo’s keeping it real tight. One to van Wyk. Dot ball. South Africa are one short of their hundred. Dot ball, and the score remains 99 at the end of the 11th over.


Dwayne Bravo into the attack to bowl the ninth over. Single to greet him, that’s polite. Another single. Single again, That’s a rare three consecutive singles, there have usually been boundaries between every couple of singles. Turning out be an anticlimax as van wyk gets another solitary run. Hit straight for another single, just one ball to go. WIDE this time, will have to bowl that again. Dot ball. fantastic over by Dwayne Bravo in the context of the game.


South Africa scored heavily in the powerplay and have continued in thwe same vein even after field restrictions have been lifted. Ashley Nurse to bowl his second over. he conceded nine from his first. Single to Hendricks first ball. FOUR! Van Wyk finds the short cover boundary along the ground. ANOTHER FOUR! Finesse there. FOUR! Its raining boundaries at Durban, beautiful gap finding on part of van Wyk who has overtaken Hendricks now. Dot ball, good come back. Another Dot ball to end the eighth over.


Carlos Brathwaite back into the attack to bowl the penultimate over of the powerplay. Single, another dropped chance though. West Indies have been sloppy and they are paying the price. Single. SIX! Over third man, tantalisingly close to the man who is a catching fielder with the bounce and pace on offer but it goes the whole way for six. Dot ball, good comeback. Single to third man. last ball coming up and ANOTHER ONE GOES INTO THE STANDS! That’s fantastic batting by the South African openers.


Andre Russel into the attack. FOUR! Pick up pull shot, deals with the half tracker appropriately there Hendricks, poor start for Russel. Single, that’s better. SIX! Picked up beautifully over square leg by Morne van Wyk. First six of the South Africa innings. Dot ball. SIX AGAIN! The penultimate ball of the fourth over sails over extra cover and just carries for six! A boundary and two sixes with one ball to go. Dot ball to finish. Outstanding start by South Africa.



Cottrell to continue. Single to point. Single down to fine leg. Caressed through covers for a brace by van Wyk. Dot ball. Dot ball, hit straight to the bowler,that was there to be hit but unable to capitalise. Dot ball, missed out again, there was width on offer but van Wyk failed to connect.


Carlos Brathwait to share the new ball with Sheldon Cottrell. Starts disastrously, thats FIVE WIDES! WIDE again! Dot ball. Single, van Wyk survives, guided the ball in the air through point, the fielder got his finger tips but failed to hold on. Another WIDE. Long over this one. FOUR! First boundary off the bat. Hendricks the batsman. Dot ball. Dot ball. FOUR AGAIN! 16 runs off the over, South Africa are on their way.
