South African tour of West Indies

South Africa had toured West Indies earlier where they had played 3 test matches, 5 ODI matches and 2 Twenty20 matches. South Africa came back with glory as they won all the 3 series. They won the test series by 2-0, ODI series by 5-0 and Twenty20 series by 2-0.

On the third day of the last test match, South African fast bowler Dale Steyn had spit against the direction of the West Indian spin bowler Sulieman Benn when West Indies had dismissed an South African batsman. Dale steyn was fined his entire match fee under the code of conduct by the ICC. Later, South African manager Mohammed Moosajee said to the press that Steyn has apologized for the incident caused. They have filed a conduct charge on Sulieman Benn and it is in judicial process.

On the fourth day of the last test match, West Indian fast bowler Kemar Roach had done a unpleasant altercation in which even he was fined 50% of his match fee.
