WI vs SA LIVE 5th T20 – South Africa beat West Indies by 25 Runs: With the ball, Tabraiz Shamsi did not disappoint in keeping the West Indian batsmen quiet, but it was the inclusion of Mulder (2/31) into the attack that provided the game changing moment of the day. He took the consecutive wickets of captain Kieron Pollard (13) and Andre Russell (0) to halt the Windies’ chase, while Kagiso Rabada (2/24) and Lungi Ngidi (3/32) polished off the tail at the death after beginning with good strides up front.
The team travel to Ireland tomorrow
