Dale Steyn edged closer to the 400 wicket mark with 4/78 as the West Indies were bowled out for 329 in their first innings by South Africa before lunch on day two on the third Test, at Newlands in Cape Town.

Steyn added the scalps of Jermaine Blackwood lbw for 56 and Jason Holder for 23 on day two to add to his two wickets on the opening day.

Steyn moved up to 393 wickets in his Test career, as the West Indies collapsed from their overnight total of 276 for six to be bundled out inside the first hour of play in the morning.

South Africa came into the final match with a 1-0 series lead, after the rain-hit Port Elizabeth Test ended in a draw on Tuesday.
