South Africa vs WID 2021
South Africa beat the West Indies by an innings and 63 runs on Saturday because the Proteas fast bowlers proved decisive within the first Test.
South Africa bowled the West Indies out for 162 in its second innings in an extended first session on the third day, with fast bowler Anrich Nortje fittingly ending it off when Jayden Seales edged to Wiaan Mulder within the slips.
South Africa’s quick men have been on the fore immediately as they blew West Indies away for simply 97 on a primary day in St. Lucia. The Proteas took management from there, with Quinton de Kock’s 141 not out driving South Africa to 322 all out and an enormous first-innings lead.
West Indies continued on the third day on 82-4 in its second innings and didn’t make it to lunch, though the break was delayed as South Africa closed in on victory.
Kagiso Rabada completed with 5-34 for South Africa within the second innings, whereas Roston Chase provided lone resistance for West Indies together with his 62.
Rabada’s fellow quick bowler, Lungi Ngidi, took 5 within the first innings, and Nortje completed with seven wickets within the match as South Africa’s three important strike bowlers starred.
They supplied a profitable begin for Dean Elgar in his first Test as captain. The second and ultimate Test can be in St. Lucia starting on Friday.
