Nortje's been quite impressive. Tougher challenges lie ahead but he has done his part in a developing test career. If he can work on his accuracy.. imagine his potency!

Agreed, Nortje has been impressive thus far in this match.

The game has every right to end tomorrow, barring a massive partnership from the home team. I just hope we don't lose by an innings and change. That would be incredibly woeful.

I am a bit surprised actually, really expected WI to put in a better performance with the bat.

Someone was saying WI and SA are similarly matched? Clinical display by SA. The SA quicks are just too much for the WI batsman to handle.
On paper at least they seemed evenly matched. I guess the only time WI turn up in Tests is when they play England, home or away barring that Bangladesh away victory. Otherwise they have been average at best against all other teams.

The issue for SA's downfall in the rankings was never the bowling attack they had. Given the right conditions, Rabada, Ngidi and Nortje are lethal and Maharaj plays that holding-one-end role well. They even bowled very well in Pakistan, only to be let down by their batsmen. They lack some stability in their batting order, had it not been for QDK this game, SA would've ended up with an average score. Releasing QDK from the captaincy was a step in the right direction, they need to stick to a couple promising batsmen and give them chances. If SA find some decent batsmen, it shouldn't be long until they can challenge the big teams again.

I made this statement somewhere and hell have I been proven wrong. Very disappointed with the WI batsmen.

I really hope KP turns it around. Need Verreynne to keep his spot for the next series, please don’t go back to Bavuma

Windies need 324.

26/2

Mayers was given out first ball for 26/3 but Rabada overstepped.

At least there's some cricket.

Keshav Maharaj with a hat-trick.

Taking nothing away from the feat, what a lousy ball to bowl for a hattrick delivery and a poor shot at that.

Historic moment for Keshav nonetheless. Congratulations!!!
