Ajay Jadeja (100 not out) and Robin Singh (75) gave their team hope but India were eventually dismissed for 205.

Herschelle Gibbs struck 101 and was well-supported by Graeme Smith (45) and Jacques Rudolph (46). Chris Gayle removed all three dangermen and South Africa would have been disappointed to finish on 246 for six. South Africa fought hard in the reply but West Indies eventually got home by five wickets, with seven balls in hand, thanks to Ramnaresh Sarwan (75), Brian Lara (49) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (51 not out).
