Cricket: Windies go 2-0 down.

SOUTH AFRICA overcame some brave last-wicket resistance to defeat West Indies by 16 runs in Port Elizabeth and take a 2-0 lead in the best- of five series.

Having reduced the tourists to 126 for nine as they chased a target of 180, the Proteas seemed well set to claim a comfortable win.

But Ravi Rampaul and Corey Collymore hung around long enough to make the St George's Park crowd start to fear the worst before all rounder Lance Klusener snared the impressive Rampaul, caught and bowled,for 24.

Collymore finished on 12 not out as the West Indies were bowled out for 163.

The West Indies lost three men -captain Brian Lara, Ramnaresh Sarwan and Ridley Jacobs -to needless runouts, and Lara admitted: ``We threw it away. We had three unnecessary run outs and they cost us,''he said.
