SA beat WI 2nd Test

Day 3

A remarkable 70-run, eighth-wicket stand between Rassie van der Dussen and Kagiso Rabada, has put the Proteas in the driving seat on Day Three of the second and final Betway Test against West Indies at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground on Sunday. West Indies finally bowled out the visitiors for 194 runs in 2nd innings as now they chase 324 runs to win the 2nd test and to level the series 1-1.

WI vs SA LIVE Score Day 4 2nd Test: West Indies need 324 runs to win after bowling out South Africa for 194, follow Day 4 Live Updates

WI vs SA Day 4 LIVE: Van der Dussen returned unbeaten for 75 off 142 balls (5x4s, 1×6) – his sixth Test half-century – after the batting unit collapsed in an almighty way after Lunch was taken early. Rabada’s 40 off 48 (5x4s, 1×6) was a career-best score for the 26-year-old number nine batsman.

The day began with the loss of the entire first session due to a wet outfield caused by overnight and morning rain with the visitors due to come in to bat. They lost the top and middle orders in quick succession, languishing on 54/6 after 20 overs when Keshav Maharaj jumped into the frying pan with Van der Dussen. They squeezed 19 runs from 38 balls for the seventh wicket before Maharaj fell victim to Jayden Seales (1/34) for six.

Rabada, batting at a strike rate of 83.33 alleviated the pressure from Van der Dussen and did well to see off the worst of the West Indian attack. Together, they moved South Africa to a more satisfactory 174 all out, setting the hosts a daunting target of 324 to win – they have yet to reach the 200 run mark in this series.

Kemar Roach (4/52) and Kyle Mayers (3/24) were the pick of the Windies’ bowlers, sharing seven wickets between them and laying waste to South Africa’s top five. Jason Holder (1/24) and captain Kraigg Brathwaite (1/10), were the other wicket takers, Holder getting the big wicket of Quinton de Kock without scoring.

WI vs SA Day 4 LIVE – West Indies chase 324 to win: Day Four will begin 30 minutes early (09:30 local time) to make up for lost time.
