Ambidextrous 27-year-old cricketer Stiaan Van Zyl, playing his first Test, looks like scoring a century while his South African team 31-year-old captain Hashim Amla, playing his 80th, looks like scoring a double as West Indies continue to seek a fifth wicket in the current second day’s play of the First Test in South Africa.

West Indies captain Denesh Ramdin may well be having second thoughts about having won the toss and inviting the hosts to bat first although his team’s capture of the first three wickets yesterday with the score on 57 raised hopes of a low-score innings by the South Africans.

But a record-fourth wicket stand ended today of 308 between century makers A B De Veillers and Amla, and now a growing fifth-wicket partnership between Amla (199) and Van Zyl (77) is emerging a head-ache for the West Indians as South Africa head towards the 500-run mark being 497 for 4.
