West Indies decide not to enforce follow-on after dismissing South Africa for 195

West Indies dismissed South Africa for 195 quickly after lunch Friday and decided not to enforce the follow-on on the third day of the first test.
South Africa fell 14 runs short of avoiding a possible follow-on but West Indies captain Chris Gayle elected to bat a second time at St. George's Park.
South Africa struggled to add 70 to its overnight total of 122-5 by lunch, and lost the wickets of Mark Boucher, A.B. de Villiers and Paul Harris.
Boucher was the first to go when he attempted a hook off the bowling of Jerome Taylor but instead sent a top edge to Daren Powell. He was out for 20 in the third over of the day.
De Villiers and Harris resisted for 18 overs, scoring 43 runs between them before De Villiers fell for a 127-ball 59 to a delivery from Dwayne Bravo which uprooted his off stump.
Harris was also patient, batting for 100 minutes for his nine runs, but was out trying to hit Bravo over midoff and falling to a catch by Taylor.
At the crease at lunch were Andre Nel on 14 and Dale Steyn on six.
Both departed soon after lunch: Nel flicked a catch to Darren Ganga off Bravo's bowling for 16, and Steyn miscued a hook off Bravo to be caught by Powell for seven.
Bravo's figures were 4-24 and Taylor's 3-46. Powell also had wickets with 3-58.
