Over 34.0  

AB de Villiers (SA): I think the credit has to go to the boys up front who set it up for us. After timing a few ball, got a bit of momentum behind me. Watch the ball is a very important thing to do. You need to know your weaknesses and strengths and play accordingly. I like reading the situations out there. I just sort of earn the right to go hard at the bowlers. I am very, very happy with tonight's performance. I am sure they (West Indies) will bounce back.

AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match
