Windies crushed again

South Africa carried their Twenty20
success into the one-day series with a 66-run win over West Indies in the first
game at the Sir Vivian Richards stadium in Antigua.

The victory was set up by twin
hundreds from Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers – de Villiers reaching his third
consecutive ODI hundred and fourth in six innings – as they added 129 together
for the third wicket and registered identical scores of 102 to take the
visitors to 280 for 7 after being put in by Chris Gayle.

It was a familiar story as West Indies
set about their chase in fits and starts, dominating for short periods but
losing wickets regularly as they were bowled out for 215 in the 45th over.
South Africa put in a team effort in the field, with every bowler except
Jacques Kallis picking up at least one wicket.
