South Africa grows lead to 108 over West Indies in 1st test
South Africa blew West Indies out for 97 on the first day and reached 128-4 at stumps. The Proteas continued to forge ahead on day two. Rassie van der Dussen made 46 to build on Aiden Markram's 60 from day one.
West Indies was fighting to stay in the game but had one positive in the performance of 19-year-old fast bowler Jayden Seales, who had figures of 3-50 in his debut test.
But after a 14-wicket opening day at Darren Sammy Stadium, West Indies broke through only once in the first session on Friday when Jason Holder pitched up to Van der Dussen and produced an edge to Shai Hope at gully.
De Kock, in his first test since giving up the captaincy and taking a break for mental health reasons, steadied his team with five fours and a 43-run stand with Wiaan Mulder, who was 21 not out.
