A tight bowling followed by Timely fifties from three batsmen of West Indies won them the fourth One Day International against South Africa who already grabbed the previous three encounters. The Proteas managed 262 runs for the loss of eight wickets after the completion of 50 overs and the Windies reached the target by hammering 266 with one wicket in hand and nine balls left in the game. The visitors still have an edge over the tourists since they are leading the five ODIs series at 3-1 and the final game will be fought well by both sides.
David Miller powered his maiden ODI hundred by smashing unbeaten 130 runs and Jean-Paul Duminy was the other notable batsman with 43. Rest of their batting could not touch the twenty runs mark which reflects the tidy bowling from the rival bowlers. AB de Villiers, Morne van Wyk, Faf du Plessis and Farhaan Behardien are required to make big contribution from their willows in the coming match. Duminy and Behardien were the successful bowlers with two wickets each while other big names remained unsuccessful but they are capable of maintaining their rhythm in the next one.
Half of the Carribeans side was sent back to the pavilion at 73 mere runs when Marlon Samuels along with Darren Sammy took them to stability by contributing 68 and 51 runs. All-rounder Andre Russell got a lucky escape when he was dropped at 40 by de Villiers at slip, the batsman ended up by hitting the winning six and held his crease for 64 off 40 comprising five huge sixes and even fours. Dwayne Smith, Chris Gayle, Leon Johnson and Denesh Ramdin can hit back in the last match. Jason Holder led his side from the front by clinching four wickets well supported by Sheldon Cottrell, Russell, Sammy and they should continue with the same spirit.
