The South African cricket team has taken a two-one lead in the five-match T20 International Series against the West Indies in St George’s in Grenada.
They have beaten the home side by one run in a nail-biting affair.
The Proteas who lost the toss for the third time in a row were put in to bat and after a promising start, again posted a below par 167 for the loss of eight wickets.
Opening batsman, Quinton de Kock, top-scored with 72 from 51 deliveries. They then restricted their hosts to 166 for seven in their 20 overs.
Left-arm wrist spinner, Tabraiz Shamsi, was again the star with the ball in hand.
He took two for 13 in his four overs – his most economical bowling figures ever in T20 International cricket.
The fourth match will be played on Thursday at the same venue.
