South Africa won the match against West Indies in the 2nd ODI

Hi friends, good morning to all of you. Yesterday night i had posted only the first innings of South Africa. South Africa had scored 300 runs loosing 5 wickets. West Indies went down to chase the score with openers Chris Gayle & Dale Richards opening the batting innings for their side.

West Indies gave a slow start where their asking rate was above the current run rate. Chris Gayle got out when he had scored only 26 runs & Ramnaresh Sarwan went back to pavillion as he had got retired out. Their was one good partnership which was between Kieron Pollard & Dwayne Bravo. After this they were loosing wickets in a very regular fashion. Ramnaresh Sarwan was back when West Indies lost their 7th wicket & hopes were almost gone. But he played just one delivery & got out. There a quick fire from Darren Sammy who scored 58 runs from just 24 deliveries which included 2 fours & 6 sixes. Again West Indies hopes were high , but this did not happen as they lost their last 3 wickets in run outs only. This was unwanted loss for West Indies, in 48.1 overs they scored 283 runs & lost all 10 wickets. Darren Sammy was not out scoring 58 runs.

Hence, South Africa won the 2nd ODI match by 17 runs. 3rd ODI will be played on 28th of May.
