Port-of-Spain: Trinidad Fast bowler Dale Steyn claimed 3-65 as South Africa sealed a convincing 163-run victory over the West Indies on day four of the first Test at Queen’s Park Oval on June 13. The home team, set an improbable 457 from its second innings to win, was bowled out for 293.

Captain Chris Gayle top-scored with 73 and there was a late flourish from the tail-enders but the visiting side completed an easy win with a day to spare.
Steyn, who took 5-29 in the first innings, claimed the Man of the Match award.
