Chris Gayle slaughtered the South African bowlers for the second time in two days which enabled West Indies with a successive win in the shortest versions of the game. The skipper of the Proteas, Faf du Plessis, powered his maiden T20 ton and they amassed 231 runs for the loss of seven wickets in the measured 20 overs. The Windies chased the target successfully by hammering 6-236 with four balls still available in a thrilling game of cricket. The Caribbeans put their name in Twenty20 history with the highest successful run chase surpassing the previous record of 3-226 by Sussex against Essex at Chelmsford in July, 2014. The visitors lead the three match series at 2-0 and must be anticipating a clean sweep while the hosts will plan for the victory.
Faf du Plessis smashed 119 off 56 mere deliveries with 5 lofty sixes and 11 fours and David Miller contributed 47 runs. They require attacking knocks from Rilee Rossouw, Morne van Wyk, Justin Ontong and Farhaan Behardien.
