    13.2 Brathwaite shoulders arms, and hears the death clatter! That's a bad misjudgment, the scrambled seam does the trick, jagging back and kissing the outside of the off stump. The openers are toast, and South Africa are in firm control 31/2
    11.4 splat! Top of off goes walkabout as Nortje finds the perfect line and length! That is pinpoint, Full, lifting, angling away, beating the outside edge, and nailing the top of the timber. 24/1
    24.1 Rabada finally gets some reward for excellent seam bowling. He beat the bat many times but this time he finds the edge and de Kock makes no mistake. Bonner's resistance doesn't last long. Was a length ball that moved away after pitching and squared Bonner up, a healthy outside edge this time 45/3
    30.1 Ngidi is in the wickets now! This is another non-descript departure, tight line, a bit of extra bounce, kisses the edge and a thin deflection to second slip. This is getting messy now 56/6
    25.6 that was a nothing short. Mayers was stuck at the crease, was a length ball around off but Mayers was on the back foot, looking to play a pull. But it's well outside off and he ends up lobbing it in the air towards extra cover. An easy catch for van de Dussen. West Indies in big trouble here 46/4
    29.4 limp, limp, limp! That's a horrible way to go, back of a length, outside off, Blackwood dangles his bat at the wide one, neither throwing the kitchen sink nor leaving well alone. Catching practice to gully, and South Africa continue their march 56/5
    40.5 Ngidi has a five-for. West Indies have been bowled out for 97, their lowest total against South Africa. It was a length ball in the channel. Holder needn't play at it but he pushes at it, gets an outside edge and an easy catch for Markram at second slip 97/10
    30.5 stunning take at third slip! De Silva tries to play with soft hands, as Ngidi probes once more on off stump, a bit of bounce and a hint of away movement. The edge was heading down all the way, but that's a superb plunge from Mulder, forward and across to leave the innings in freefall! 56/7
    34.1 flogged high over the cordon, but he's not got hold of it! That's circling high above Gros Piton, and Markram steadies himself well as he sprints back from the slips towards the boundary, grabbing it over his shoulder to dent a fleeting fightback 74/8
    36.1 edged and gone! That's exceptional areas from Ngidi, Shaun Pollock would approve of that line and length, allied to some extra bounce, ripping into the edge, high on the blade, and snicked through to the keeper. There's been some poor batting today, but that was just excellent bowling 80/9
