West Indies 243 & 96-4 South Africa 321: Prince puts Proteas back in driving seat
Saturday 05 January 2008
Ashwell Prince's 98 put South Africa in control of the second test against West Indies yesterday. West Indies were 96 for 4 in their second innings at the close of the third day at Newlands, a lead of 18. South Africa were dismissed for 321 in reply to West Indies' first-innings 243.
Prince batted for five hours, faced 225 balls and hit 11 fours in his innings. He added 129 with wicketkeeper Mark Boucher (59) for the sixth wicket. Prince and Boucher resumed on 218 for 5, and were separated after an hour when Boucher was bowled off the bottom edge of his bat by Dwayne Bravo.
Prince was out in the third over after lunch when he tried to take a second run from a delivery by Daren Powell and was caught short by Jerome Taylor's throw from third man to Ramdin.
The visitors' chances of forging significantly ahead would seem to rest in the hands of their overnight batsmen, the obdurate Shivnarine Chanderpaul (8 not out) and the aggressive captain Chris Gayle (1 not out), who came in at number six.
