06 Jan 11:45
FOUR! Elgar into the 40s as he drives Gabriel past mid-off for a boundary.

  • South Africa needs 115 more to win - That is stumps on day 4. Despite the loss of Alviro Petersen, one feels that the Proteas are in control. The morning session on day 5 will be important. The West Indies lost their last six second innings wickets very cheaply and can only blame themselves. Petersen failed yet again and sadly this may well be the end of the road for him, for his sake, I hope not!. Please join us for Day 5 tomorrow. The weather forecast looks good and as a result of overs lost today, we will start at 10 am RSA time tomorrow, ie. 8 am GMT.

  • 80

    Steyn continues with over number eight in this spell, to Gabriel. Steyn can't spoil Harmer's fun as Shiv is run out for 50! What a disaster for the West Indies. They went from an effective 202 for four to 215 all out. That's what Steyn and co can achieve. It's a small target and we all know that small targets can be tricky. Let see how SA responds. They need 124 to win.

  • 76

    Steyn continues with his sixth over in this spell, around the wicket to Shiv. He starts full and outside off as Shiv takes a single to mid-off. Holder also collects a single to mid-wicket.

  • Drinks - are served as the effective score is now 94/4.

  • 60

    The Verne returns. Samuels takes two runs to third man as Philander gets one to nip back. A good over.

  • Drinks - are served as the West Indies lead is now 62.

  • 52

  • 49

    Steyn continues. The umpire gives Chanderpaul out caught behind. He reviews it and it's overturned. Replays shows it came off the thigh pad. He survives. The next ball goes for three backward of point. Is Steyn getting angry yet? An eventful over comes to an end.

  • 37

    Wicket: Morkel continues. Four dot balls then wicket!! Morne strikes as Johnson departs.It was a slightly shorter delivery and he edges it to Hash in the slips. Early break for the hosts. Chanderpaul is the next man in. This partnership will be important for the West Indies.

  • 3

    Wow!! for the first time in this match the West Indies are running to the other end to start the next over. Yes!! even Mr Jamaica, Marlon Samuels. Benn starts from the other end and OUT!!! well done and Petersen's woes continues as he gives his wicket away, bowled by Benn. Bad Judgement, sadly for him. No night watchman required as it's stumps day 4.

  • 2

    Interesting choice as the Jamaican, Mr Samuels opens the bowling from the other end. Where is Benn?? Four!! as Elgar gets it into the gap at mid off, That deserved what it got!! No more risks here.

  • 1

    This will be a tricky few minutes for the SA openers Elgar and Petersen. Jerome Taylor starts to Elgar. Four leg byes starts the chase as it passes the slips from outside the off stump. Elgar opens his account with a single square of the wicket.

  • 79

    Harmer to Gabriel in search of his fifth. Just a single from it. Will Steyn spoil his five for?

  • 78

    Wicket: When last did Steyn bowl a spell of seven overs? I can't remember, but it may have been against Australia in PLZ, earlier in 2014 on that fourth day. OUT!!! Benn is victim no 396 as AB takes him behind the stumps. The Steyn remover wont let that red ball go now! Gabriel is the last man to join Shiv. A single to Gabriel means he will face Harmer.

  • 77

    Wicket: Harmer strikes with his third ball. Wicket!! as Holder departs, caught by Amla at mid-wicket. Very ordinary Mr Holder, for an ODI Captain. Jerome Taylor is in next. This is just the support Steyn needs. Wicket!! again as Taylor is caught by Elgar! The Shiv is running out of partners. Yet another stupid shot. Do they even want to fight? Benn is in next.

  • 76

    Harmer bowls a very good maiden to Holder.

  • 74

    Wicket: Steyn! Steyn! Steyn! Wicket!! Well he has no 395 as Ramdin leaves us, caught by Harmer. It was swinging into his pads and the skipper couldn't keep this one out and is caught at square leg. Jason Holder, the ODI captain, is in next. South Africa reviews an lbw, despite Steyn not being interested. I guess they will get two more at 80 overs. It is turned down. Steyn was right. Holder gets a single to get off the mark. A Chanderpaul four spoils the over, but what a ball. The big fellah is on fire!!

  • 73

    The West Indies Captain, Denesh Ramdin, is the new man in as Harmer continues. Chanderpaul adds two more as the West Indies are effectively 112/5.

  • 72

    Steyn continues the search for that first wicket in this innings. Chanderpaul takes a single past point, as that's too wide outside off. The search is OVER!!!!! Blackwood is victim number 394 for Dale Steyn. He is clean bowled by the Steyn remover! and literally, he has been cleaned up with one that came back.

  • 71

    200: Harmer concedes a single off Chanderpaul, to start the over. Four! as Blackwood sends him to the mid wicket boundary. Is he taking over from Samuels? Let's see. Nothing further in this over. 200 up and the lead is 109.

  • 70

    Steyn continues to Blackwood. Well played as he beats Faf in the covers, for two runs. He adds two more into the covers. Despite conceding the four runs, Steyn had him beaten twice in the over.

  • 68

  • 65

    Wicket: Harmer continues to Chanderpaul, who gets a first ball single. They now have a foward short leg in place for Samuels. He takes two to mid-off. Harmer laughs last!! Wicket!! as the Jamaican takes his five minute walk back to the dressing room, after being caught by Elgar. He once again tried to hit Harmer out of the attack. Jermaine Blackwood walks in next as the lead is 90 runs. A huge appeal for lbw against Chanderpaul is turned down, and SA will not review.

  • 64

    Philander continues to Samuels. He mixes it up between short of a length and some fuller deliveries. It keeps Samuels guessing. The second maiden in a row. Maidens leads to wickets!

  • 63

    They persist with Harmer. Chanderpaul id dropped!! by AB of all people. He was nowhere near catching that cleanly, That's a wasted opportunity. It's a maiden.

  • 62

    Philander continues. He concedes a single to fine leg. Chanderpaul played that short of a length delivery, behind square. A huge appeal for lbw ends the over, but impact was outside leg.

  • 61

    Harmer concedes a first ball four, to Chanderpaul, as it's too short yet again. Samuels clearly had an effect here. Chanderpaul takes one more behind square. What will Samuels do now? Four byes as that beats everyone! The lead is now 86.

  • 60

    The Verne returns. Samuels takes two runs to third man as Philander gets one to nip back. A good over,

  • 59

    Harmer returns into the attack. Chanderpaul collect two, square of the wicket, as Harmer drops one short and wide. A four! ends the over as Chanderpaul cuts it past point. Too much width from Harmer.

  • 57

    Morne Morkel continues and may get the wicket soon. He has looked good. Another good over. Just a single to Chanderpaul off the fifth ball.

  • 56

    Stiaan van Zyl comes into the attack now replacing Harmer. It's a moral victory to Samuels. Four past point to Samuels, as van Zyl drops it short.

  • Drinks - are served.

  • 55

    Morne Morkel continues with his 13th over. He is targeting Samuels with the short ones here. It's getting closer and closer to hitting the batsman. Great Over. Maiden!

  • 53

    Morne Morkel returns into the attack with figures of 2/16. Two slips and a gully in place for Chanderpaul. He gets off strike with a single to square leg. Just one from this Morkel over, as it ends with a huge appeal for caught behind.

  • 52

    Harmer continues. Three singles off the first four balls then six!! Samuels once again sends him over the long on fence. He is targeting him as he follows it up with a four to mid-wicket.

  • 51

  • 49

    Steyn continues. The umpire gives Chanderpaul out caught behind. He reviews it and it's overturned. Replays shows it came off the thigh pad. He survives. The next ball goes foe three backward of point. Is Steyn getting angry yet? An eventful over comes to an end.

  • 48

    The spinner, Simon Harmer returns to the attack with figures of 1/28. Chanderpaul receives a low full toss and takes a single to square leg. Samuels uses his feet and collects two to long off. He repeats this with the next ball. Six!! as Samuels send Harmer over the long on fence this time. He means business!

  • 47

    Steyn starts with one that is left alone outside off by Chanderpaul. Four! as Chanderpaul, plays a fuller delivery outside off to the cover boundary. A single ends the over.

  • 46

    Some sun is out in Cape Town as Philander continues. Chanderpaul opens the face of his bat and gets a single past point. Good fielding by Bavuma. There's an appeal for a catch, but it appears to be a bump ball. It is referred and the third umpire says Samuels is not-out. The Jamaican adds one more to long off. One leg bye ends the over as the West Indies lead is now 21 runs.

  • Drinks - are on the field now.

  • 45

    Dale Steyn returns and replaces Morkel. He starts on a good length and on off stump. He beats Samuels with another one outside the off stump. A maiden from Steyn. The pressure continues and normally maidens leads to wickets.

  • 44

    Philander continues. It's a mix batch from him in this over. This was not as consistent as his previous overs. He concedes two singles.

  • 42

    Philander starts full and outside the off stump. Chanderpaul takes two runs past the fielder at point, to get off the mark. They are using the conditions well here, South Africa. The West Indies are effectively 12/3.

  • 41

    Morne Morkel starts with his tenth over. He beats Samuels with the first two deliveries. Samuels earns two more into the covers, as Morne delivers a fuller delivery. Only two from this Morkel over,

  • 40

    100: Vernon Philander replaces Dale Steyn. He gets reverse swing immediately. Samuels collects a single past point as he pushes at one outside the off stump. Philander is on the money right away. 100 up for the West Indies.

  • 39

  • 38

  • 36

    That first over was good for the hosts. As expected Dale Steyn, starts from the other end. He gets the edge of Johnson and it just evades Amla in the slips, as it goes for four. It appears as if Steyn is getting reverse swing here. Three more to Johnson into the covers as Steyn continues his line outside off.

  • 35

  • - The Windies will begin the day on 88/2, and will have 53 overs to potentially bat out. Play can go until 7pm, but it's still very overcast so that seems unlikely.

  • Day 4 - Rain delay - Hi there, we've had rain for most of the day here in Cape Town, but play is set to begin at 3pm local time.

  • TEA - Another session where South Africa picked up 2 wickets. West Indies did manage to pick up 92 runs which would please them but the way in which 2 of their batsmen gave their wickets away, would be a cause for concern.

  • 55

    Harmer starts with 2 dot balls and a single off the next ball. There's one more single off the last ball. There's time for one more over.

  • 10

    Philander continues and starts with 3 dot balls.Brathwaite cuts the fourth ball past Bavuma at point for 4! Ends with 2 dot balls.

  • 8

    Philander starts with 5 dot balls and the last ball is nudged by Smith for a single.

  • 7

    Another maiden from Steyn. Have to say though, these 2 openers are playing very watchfully. Looks like they are determined to stay in and wear the SA bowlers down.

  • 6

    Philander starts with 3 dot balls, followed by a single off the fourth one.2 dot balls follow. There was a little noise as the ball goes past something on the leg-side. It was a stifled appeal though as it could've been pad or thigh pad.

  • 5

  • 1

    Starts with a good line and there's no run. This is followed by another 5 dot balls. It was a probing over, making the batsman play most of the deliveries.

  • - They have just finished with the anthems for both teams and the Proteas are on the field, taking their positions. Kraigg Brathwaite and Devon Smith have come out to the middle. Dale Steyn will open for South Africa. Here we go...

  • TEAM NEWS - The only change the West Indies have made is to bring in Jermaine Blackwood for Kenroy Peters. For the South Africans, the Warriors spinner,Simon Harmer has been handed his debut.

  • Toss - Dinesh Ramdin calls heads and calls correctly! They are going to bat first. Hashim says that he would've also batted first as well but there might be something in it for the bowlers during the first session.

  • Greetings - Welcome to a glorious day in Cape Town. Its the perfect day for some Test cricket.

  • STUMPS - I guess you could say its been an even day and South Africa might have a slight edge. There have been some good starts by the batsmen with only Johnson and Ramdin going on to get 50's. The star bowler today was the debutant Simon Harmer. He took 3/67 and Steyn was the next best with 2/59. The West Indies have it all to do tomorrow. The average first innings score at Newlands is 332, so they are still within sight of that but they are prone to collapses. Can they hold on tomorrow? Join us to find out. Till then...cheers!

  • 90

    Steyn to bowl the final over of the day. Starts with 2 dot ball. Third ball was on leg and Holder flicks it over the fielder for a boundary and he gets off the mark after 12 deliveries.

  • 89

    Philander to bowl his final over of the day. Starts with 3 dot balls. The fourth ball is guided by Blackwood wide of gully for a boundary. Nice shot or lucky shot...maybe a bit of both but the result is still a boundary! This is followed by 2 dot balls.

  • 88

    Steyn bowls another maiden. A lot of 'ooohs and aaaahs' in that over but Holder is still somehow, managing to hold on.

  • 87

    Philander continues and its a maiden. Good tight bowling. These batsmen would want to get to stumps with their wickets intact.

  • 86

    Steyn is back for a late burst. Starts with a dot ball. WICKET! It was a straight ball and Ramdin played very early. Easiest of catches to Steyn and he's chuffed. The captain goes for 53 off 103 balls with 6 boundaries. Holder comes in. Steyn has his tail up and he's beaten the bat and found an edge. Good over from Steyn, breaking the partnership worth 94 runs.

  • 78

    van Zyl bowls a maiden. Not sure if he's been bowling well or if the batsmen are not in an attacking mood. You would think that the strategy would be to attack as much as they can before the new ball. Anyway, this partnership is worth 70 runs now, best of the match.

  • 77

    Harmer bowling his 24th over now. Again he concedes 3 singles. The new ball just 3 overs away now.

  • 70

For what would've been the last ball of the over, the ball seems to slip from Steyn's hand and ends up way down the leg-side for 5 wides. Everyone has a chuckle. Ends the over with a dot.

  • 69

    Harmer is back after an overs rest. There is 2 runs off the first ball and that's all there is. The rest of the over consists of 5 dot balls.

  • 68

    Steyn continues. Ramdin gets 3 off the first ball and Blackwood gets 2 off the next. This is followed by a dot ball and the fourth ball is a beauty that just goes past the edge.

  • 67

    Harmer has been taken off and Dean Elgar replaces him. Once again just 3 singles conceded in the over.

  • 60

    Morkel continues and this go-slow method that the batsmen have adopted could come back to haunt them at a later stage. Its a maiden over from Morkel.

  • 59

    Harmer continues and once again its a maiden. This guy is bowling like a veteran.

  • 58

    Morkel is back. Starts with 3 dot balls. Fourth ball is played just wide of cover and goes for 4. That was in the air for a while. There's a single off the next ball. Ends the over with a dot ball.

  • 57

    WICKET! First ball and Harmer strikes. This delivery is full and on the legside and Chanderpaul seems to over-balance and AB has the bails off in a flash! Chanderpaul's wretched form continues and he has to go for 9 off 48 balls with a boundary. Dinesh Ramdin walks in. He faces 4 dot balls and gets off the mark courtesy of a thick outside edge to the third man boundary.

  • TEA - Another session where South Africa picked up 2 wickets. West Indies did manage to pick up 92 runs which would please them but the way in which 2 of their batsmen gave their wickets away, would be a cause of concern. Harmer has bowled well and looks a good prospect. He contributed to the second wicket that fell by building good pressure by his accurate bowling. Join us in 15 minutes for the final session.

  • 56

    van Zyl is given one more. Chanderpaul gets a leg-bye off the first ball. This is followed by 2 dot balls. The fourth ball is a full delivery and Blackwood comes forward and drives that wide of mid-off for 4! Ends the over with 2 dot balls. That's Tea!

He goes for 43 off 70 balls with 6 boundaries. This is what pressure does and Harmer built up a lot of it. The captain Blackwood walks in. There's a single off the fifth ball.

  • 51

    Harmer starts with 5 dot balls and there is a single off the last ball.

  • 44
