South Africa was bowled out for a dismal 195 in their first innings of the five day test being played at St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth against the West Indies.

South Africa was 13 runs shy to avoid the follow-on after the West Indies scored an impressive 408 runs in their first innings.

The only batsman to contribute to South Africa’s disappointing score was AB de Villiers who scored a determined 59 runs.

South Africa was avoided the follow-on when Windies captain Chris Gayle decided to stretch his teams lead leading to South Africa receiving an embarrassing defeat,

By tea time West Indies were 35 for one, with captain Chris Gayle back in the dressing room for 29 runs.
