West Indies, in yet another poor start with the bat, lost four wickets before reaching the fifty-run mark. The South African bowlers have troubled the batsmen all the way, giving them few opportunities to cut loose. Morne Morkel got Dwayne Smith’s wicket on a two ball duck. Chris Gayle fell to JP Duminy for 10.

In an athletic effort in the outfield, captain AB de Villiers got Leon Johnson run-out even and Farhaan Behardien took the wicket of Denesh Ramdin shortly after. West Indies’ woes seem relentless.

In the first innings South Africa recovered to score 262 for eight from 76 for four. David Miller starred with the bat scoring 130 of 133 deliveries. The West Indian bowlers put on a good show otherwise. Skipper, Jason Holder bagged a four wicket haul, two wickets of which came in the final over. Apart from Miller, only JP Duminy put up a fight with bat, scoring 43 and forging a crucial 90-run partnership with him.
