Proteas beat West Indies

11:03 am on 14 June 2010

The South African cricketers have wrapped up the first Test against the West Indies late on the fourth day with a 163-run win in Trinidad.

The tourists declared on 206-4 after 19 overs of batting in the morning with Graeme Smith dismissed for 90.

That left the Windies needing 457 to win, a small matter of 355 more than they had managed in the first innings.

Two wickets down at lunch, and 139 for 4 at tea, the West Indies were bowled out for 293 with nine minutes left in the day.
