Steyn leads South Africa to victory

By The Assam Tribune

PORT OF SPAIN, June 14 (AFP): Fast bowler Dale Steyn starred again as South Africa secured a 163-run victory over the West Indies in the opening Test.

Steyn collected three wickets for 65 runs from 15.3 overs, as West Indies, chasing 457 for victory, were bowled out for 293, just before the rescheduled close on the fourth day at Queen�s Park Oval.

The South African quick ended the match yesterday with figures of eight for 94 to earn the man-of-the-match award.

Steyn bowled Nelon Pascal off an inside edge for 10, when the West Indies tail-ender tried a flamboyant one-legged pull.

Morne Morkel supported Steyn with two for 49 from 12 overs, while left-arm spinner Paul Harris took two for 91 from 26.3 overs.
