SA fight back

After struggling at 70-3, South Africa were bowled out for a competitive 352 by the West Indies on day two of the first Test.

After losing three big wickets on day one (Graeme Smith, Alviro Petersen and Hashim Amla), night watchman Paul Harris and Jacques Kallis fell after 37 runs on the second day. This saw the Proteas slump to 107-5. However, the Proteas’ middle order came to the rescue.

AB de Villiers (68), Ashwell Prince (57) and Mark Boucher (69) all scored half centuries to steer South Africa to a respectable total. Dale Steyn also chipped in with a useful 39.

However, Windies spinner Sulieman Benn ripped through the tail to finish on figures of 5-120. Dwayne Bravo dismissed Boucher for the Proteas’ final wicket to end the visitors’ innings and day two.

Stumps, Day 2:
First innings – South Africa 352 (129.4 overs)
