The South African Legends team easily saw off the West Indies Legends by six wickets in their Road Safety World Series match in Mumbai on Wednesday.
The islanders batted first in the 20-over clash with a team that featured stars like Brian Lara, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Carl Hooper but couldn’t properly exploit their attacking power and slumped to 143-8.
Great bowling by former Proteas spinner Paul Harris restricted the West Indies with three wickets, while Albie Morkel also contributed two scalps.
The South African chase got off to a very poor start, though, as they fell to 42-4 with Herschelle Gibbs, Morne Morkel, Jacques Rudolph and Martin van Jaarsveld all departing fairly cheaply.
Captain Jonty Rhodes and Morkel steadied the ship, however, with a century stand to lead South Africa to victory.
Both reached their half-centuries in the process, Morkel rolling back the years with a couple of big strikes over the boundary.
South Africa will next face the Sri Lankan Legends team on Friday.
