West Indies lose wickets to South Africa

Centurion:

South Africa took three wickets in 22 balls in the fourth and final cricket Test at Centurion Park today. The West Indies were 283 for six at lunch, still 20 short of making South Africa bat again, with 69 overs remaining in the match. Armed with the second new ball, Makhaya Ntini ended a record 174-run fourth wicket stand when he had Chris Gayle (107) caught at gully. Shaun Pollock trapped Ramnaresh Sarwan leg before wicket in the next over for 119 before Ntini bowled Dwayne Smith for nought. Sarwan equalled his previous highest Test score of 119, made against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2002/03, before he went back on his stumps against Pollock, played across the line and was adjudged lbw by umpire Srinivas Venkataraghavan. Replays suggested the ball would probably have gone over the top of the stumps. Only ten runs were added to the overnight total of 263 for three before Gayle cut Ntini to gully where Neil McKenzie held the catch. He had added only one run off 13 balls. The resumption of the match, which has been plagued by rain and bad light, was again delayed by rain by 100 minutes cutting the scheduled number of overs on the final day from 105 to 80.
