LIVE SCORING: SA v West Indies

The West Indies are 144/2 in their first innings after South Africa had declared on 417/8 in the rain-marred Test.

Kraigg Brathwaite (65*) and Marlon Samuels (60*) hit half-centuries before bad weather again halted play late on Sunday.

He ended a 55-run opening partnership between Brathwaite and Devon Smith (22) by having Smith caught at first slip, with Leon Johnson (0) edging the next delivery to third slip.
