The Proteas made 279/8 from a reduced 48.2 overs, just before the heavy rainfall. Captain and wicket keeper AB de Villiers was the man of the match with 81; David Miller made 70, and Hashim Amla made 66. Amla became the fastest batsman to reach 5000 runs in the ODI format. Bowling for the Windies, Jerome Taylor took 2/50 from 9.2, and Andre Russell 2/51 from 10. The visitors were chasing a revised target of 226 from 33 overs, but fell short with 164 all out; Chris Gayle was the top scorer with 41. 3 South African bowlers took 3 wickets each: Vernon Philander 3/44 from 6, Dale Steyn 3/27 from 5.2, and Imran Tahir 3/30 from 6. South Africa lead 1-0 in this 5-match series. (Image source: ESPN Cricinfo)
