South Africa win third test

6:23 am on 30 June 2010

The South African cricketers have beaten the West Indies by 7 wickets in the third test in Barbados to take the series 2-nil.

Needing 47 to win, the Proteas limped to 49 for three after fast bowler Kemar Roach struck Graeme Smith and Jacques Kallis on the helmet and the umpires had to intervene to keep the peace as tempers flared between the players.

West Indies resumed overnight on 134 for seven with Shivnarine Chanderpaul on 57. The Guyanese left hander ran out of partners and finished on 71 not out from 179 deliveries with seven fours and a six after Morne Morkel took three wickets to run through the tail.
