Match Ended   
144/2 (18.2/20)
143/8 (20.0/20)
South Africa beat West Indies by 8 wickets
That is all from this game but do not go anywhere as the next game will begin shortly which will be played between New Zealand and Pakistan at Sharjah. That game will begin at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Switch tabs and do join us there. Till then, cheers!
Temba Bavuma, the skipper of South Africa, says that this game was much better than their first game. Mentions that the bowlers bowled really well and then the batters stepped up as well. Tells that they weren't sure how the wicket will react so they just decided to give it a go with Markram. States that their bowling has been well and good and Aiden has been hitting the ball wonderfully. Informs that losing a guy like de Kock is not good but at the end of the day, it was another game to play for the country.
Kieron Pollard, the skipper of West Indies, says that they did not bat well and it is very disappointing. Adds that they started well in the Powerplay but lost wickets later which hurted them. Tells that things like these happen and maintaining strike rate is difficult on these kind of wickets. Ends by saying that winning games is the main thing and they would not be thinking about the net run rate just yet.
Anrich Nortje is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH - He says that playing in the Indian T20 League helped a lot. Mentions that knowing the conditions and what to do and when to execute plans made it easy. Tells that the wicket was good to bowl on and it definitely paid out today. Also says that it is always good working with Rabada as his knowledge and ideas of the game is great. Adds that they were not close to a perfect game but they will try and give their 100 percent to have a perfect game and is hopeful that they can build on this.
....PRESENTATION TIME....
Earlier in the day, after electing to bowl, the South African bowlers did really well to restrict Windies to an average total which was chased down by them with ease.
The Windies managed to take an early wicket but then could not keep the pressure going. They did not bowl all that bad but did give away a few loose ones and a few extras when not needed. The bowlers though can’t be blamed as they just did not have enough runs on the board on a wicket which got easier to bat on.
Quite an easy win in the end for South Africa. 144 was always under par and that was pretty much evident. The Proteas did lose Bavuma early but Reeza Hendricks and Rassie played really well to not only get the chase back on track but take South Africa on top. The two added above 50 before Reeza fell after a good knock. Markram though did not let the momentum slip away as he too played a brilliant knock and he along with Rassie have given their side their first win of the tournament.

DRINKS! With that wicket, drinks are taken on the field now. After losing Temba Bavuma early, Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen did really well to keep the scoreboard ticking and also brought their 50-run partnership. West Indies have got their man in the form of Reeza Hendricks who was looking dangerous but they need a few more wickets to turn the game in their favor. Aiden Markram walks out to bat now.

W
Akeal Hosein To Reeza Hendricks OUT!
OUT! THAT IS AS CLEAN AS A WHISTLE! Fantastic piece of fielding from Shimron Hetmyer to bring West Indies back into this contest! Huge wicket in the context of the game as Reeza Hendricks walks back to the hut. He was batting with ease but this will give Windies the belief. Not the best of balls though, it is short and on middle, Reeza pulls it powerfully but flat towards deep square leg. Hetmyer runs in, dives forward and claims to take it. The umpires discuss and then take it upstairs with the soft signal being NOT OUT! Replays show that he has taken it inches above the ground. Can Windies build pressure from here?
Both umpires converge and send a catch referal upstairs. The soft signal is NOT OUT from Aleem Dar. Replay shows that Shimron Hetmyer's fingers are underneath and the third umpire signals it OUT.

Akeal Hosein To Temba Bavuma OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Flatter ball, angling it on the pads. Temba Bavuma rocks back and works it to mid on. He scampers across for a quick single. Andre Russell picks the ball quickly and throws it in one motion at the bowler's end. He scores a direct hit at the stumps. The umpire takes it upstairs. Replay shows Temba Bavuma is caught well short and has to walk back to the pavilion. Great work from Andre Russell and South Africa lose their first wicket. Just the kind of start West Indies needed.
A decision for run out has been sent upstairs! Temba Bavuma might well be short of his crease as there was a direct hit at the bowler's end.
