• Verreynne falls just before tea, Elgar soldiers on

    Dean Elgar and Kyle Verreynne steadied the Proteas’ first innings batting display before the latter fell just before tea to leave South Africa on 125-4 against the West Indies.

    Earlier in the day, Aiden Markram, Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen had all been dismissed cheaply before Verreynne and Elgar combined for a near-century stand.

    Verreynne was ultimately caught behind when he was on 27, but crucially for the Proteas, captain Elgar was still not out on 53.
