2nd ODI: West Indies v South Africa (Winner: SA)

SA 300/5 (H Amla 92, J Kallis 85, K Pollard 2/39, J Taylor 2/50) beat WI 283 (D Bravo 74, D Sammy 58*, M Morkel 3/58) by 17 runs.

   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: H Amla Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua (24 May,2010)

Once again South Africa got off to a good start with 89 runs partnership for the first wicket. After Smith got out Kallis built the innings first with Amla and then with AB to reach 239/3 in 43rd over. With top 4 bastsmen answering Coach’s call it was no surprise that they ended up with 300 runs and a COW of 54%. West Indies were surprisingly circumspect chasing a big total and trundled to 45/1 in 11th with a COW of 33%.They needed one big partnership to recover but that never happened. Apart from Richards’ and Bravo’s fifties no one really contributed till Sammy scored an explosive fifty to turn the match around but eventually ran out of partners as West indies were all out for 283.
