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)

    We have changed the Board, several Selection Panels, Admin Staff and Coaches..too numerous to mention…and WI still losing. Why don’t we wise up and be honest about our players….will we change Prime Ministers next….? Deal with and accept the real issue….

    These do for nothing fellow fighting for money and can’t bat a full day. Who boss going to pay full pay for people who can’t stand up at the crease. CHRIS Gayle know that he couldn’t may it so he duck out of the tournament hahaha

    This is a game that the cricketers gone by loved and would have played their hearts out for no pay. Now it seem that it’s a profession first and a game last. The pride is gone. The passion is gone. I once saw Desmond Haynes after getting out fairly, walked home in a local cricket game. He was not getting paid. He loved the game so much. He was mad at himself for getting out. That speaks for itself

    We need “good pitches” in the Caribbean for our FAST bowlers to bowl on which in turn will perduce GOOD batsmen. Raise those covers that sit on the batting surface and stop them from burning off all the live green grass .
    Get a set of GROUNDSMEN that are up to standard with the “new-way” of doing things out in the middle and WI cricket problems solve.
