Well a very good game by SA. First they get 5 WI wickets for 21 runs as they restrict WI to 253. Then they bat superbly. The lowest South African score is 40 not out by Gibbs.

Man of the Match is Smith with his 103.

once again SA just outplayed WI. WI collapsed in the morning as usual as they were doing in the test matches. and as usual the middle order stood up firmly and were moving forward to a huge total. but once again a collapse and the end of their story of their batting. and SA batsman just made it look easy. they were just too good for the WI.
