Chris Gayle, who was later bowled by Rabada for just four, knocked back David Miller’s top of the middle stump to make it 47-5 before de Kock and Wiese put on a half century stand to give South Africa a glimmer of hope.”It felt like the whole game we were half-a-step behind West Indies and we were trying to catch up the whole time,” du Plessis said.Gayle finished with 2-17 off three overs.last_img read more
