South Africa win this easily. They first posted a good total and then bowled well to not let the Windies run away with the game. Chris Gayle started off in his trademark style but once he departed things started falling apart for the visitors. With the middle order back in, it was just a matter of time before the Proteas attack of Steyn, Philander, Tahir who all took three wickets each and wrapped up the innings.
