cow-analysis

In the 5th match West Indies’ innings was typical stop-start innings with almost every batsman getting a start and throwing it away. Only Chanderpaul and Deonarine showed some mettle with gritty fifties as West Indies struggled to meet last match’s exploits and scored 252 runs for a COW of 51%. The total was not huge but there was little something in the pitch for the bowlers. South Africa’s story was similar, however Amla, Kallis and Duminy scored fifties to ensure that COW never got too low. However a late fight back by West Indies bowlers saw the match go down to the wire with South Africans scampering through in the last over to win the match by 1 wicket and the series 5-0.
