Led by Kemar Roach and Kyles Mayers, West Indies ran through South Africa’s top-order and have given themselves a chance of victory in an enthralling second Betway Test match.
Roach took 4-52 with a mixture of supreme accuracy and clever each-way movement while Mayers had 3-24 with his lively medium-fast bowling on the third afternoon at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground on Sunday. The Proteas were at one stage reduced to 73-7 but recovered to post 174 and set the West Indies a target of 324 thanks to an unbeaten 75 from Rassie van der Dussen and a career-best 40 from Kagiso Rabada.
West Indies will resume on Monday needing another 309 for victory. At the crease are skipper Kraigg Brahwaite on five and with him Kieran Powell on nine.
Earlier in the day, rain caused the start to be delayed by two hours. South Africa started their second innings after lunch and was off to a less than ideal start when Roach drew an outside edge from Aiden Markram that was smartly held by Jason Holder at the second slip.
