Gros-Islet, St. Lucia: Lungi Ngidi mowed the bottom half of the West Indian batting order en route to a five-wicket haul when South Africa ranked the home team for 97 on the opening day of the pair’s first Test. Game series at Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in St. Lucia on Thursday.
The Proteas played their first series in the Caribbean in 11 years, finishing the game at 128 for four, a lead of 31 runs. Opener Aiden Markram has scored the top 60 so far, but he was one of three wickets that went to debutant West Indies Tempor Jayden Seales, who was also responsible for South Africans Keegan Petersen and Kyle Verreynne.
Rassie van der Dussen will resume on the second morning in collaboration with former captain Quinton de Kock.

Ngidi’s fives for 19 was his second five-wicket innings in Test cricket, with most of his success coming in the afternoon session after seaman Anrich Nortje knocked the West Indies on his back with three of the four wickets Morning break.
That breakdown marked a chaotic period on either side of the lunch interval as the West Indies lost five wickets for 11 runs, including three with a score of 56, to be sacked for their lowest-ever Testinnings overall against South Africa .
Jason Holder last failed with a top score of 20, which gave Ngidi the coveted fifth wicket.
« We all decided on a specific plan of attack, » said Ngidi of the disciplined off-stump Line of all the fast bowlers who brought rich rewards with sure hands in the slip cordon.
« Getting another five-wicket haul is really satisfying because I’ve gotten close a few times since that first « five » so this is a good reward for all the hard work. «
However, it looked very different from Captain Kraigg Brathwaite and opening partner Shai Hope for the first 45 minutes successfully negotiated. But the introduction of Nortje brought almost instant rewards for removing Hope to end an inaugural partnership of 24.
Then he bowled Brathwaite in his next opener, the phlegmatic right-handed who chose to hit first, if he won the throw, and paid the ultimate price for a miscalculation in choosing not to offer a shot to a supplying fishing rod.
Rabada had struggled impressively unsuccessfully on the other end until he got the well-deserved reward of the wicket from Nkrumah Bonner got. When he was hit too late on Nortje’s helmet with a hook throw, there was nothing he could do about a perfectly played throw by Rabada, which brought the lead to Wicketkeeper de Kock.
Bonner was then diagnosed with a concussion and will not be another Play a role in the game. His place in the West Indies eleven was taken by opening batsman Kieran Powell.
De Kock, South Africa’s leader in the last four Tests, had previously chosen not to take a knee or raise a right fist, unlike to his teammates on the field before the start of the game when the South Africans teamed up with the West Indian team in recognition of the global Black Lives Matter movement and its concerns about racism and other forms of discrimination.
Nortje returned just before lunch for one second spell and sent an insecure Kyle Mayers without too much difficulty and then triggered the last surrender in the early afternoon with the wicket from Jermaine Blackwood.
With that, Ngidi could enjoy the remaining blows and he did not miss the opportunity and reaping the rewards of a tight, disciplined line by having Roston Chase, Joshua da Silva and Roach in faster succession before adding Holder to end the innings.
This will be the first meeting in Test cricket between the two teams in the West Indies since 2010 and the first since their historic one-off meeting in 1992 in Barbados that the Caribbean side is ranked higher than the Proteas ahead of a series.
