Humiliating defeat for Windies
West Indies slumped to their heaviest every defeat to South Africa when they went down by an innings and 220 runs, 70 minutes before lunch on the penultimate day of the opening Test today.
Resuming the day on 76 for two, West Indies lost their last eight wickets for 55 runs in just 15.3 overs at SuperSport Park, as fast bowler Dale Steyn ripped apart the innings to finish with six or 34.
Fellow seamer Morne Morkel picked up two for 43.
Leon Johnson, unbeaten on 33 overnight, top-scored with 39 but once he fell in the sixth over of the day with the score on 87, West Indies once again crumbled spectacularly.
Injured tail-ender Kemar Roach was unable to bat.
The second Test bowls off in Port Elizabeth on Boxing Day. (CMC)
