Keshav Maharaj became the first South African bowler to take a Test hat-trick in nearly 61 years against the West Indies on the fourth day of the second Test in St Lucia on Monday.
SCORECARD - West Indies v Proteas, 2nd Test
Kieron Powell (51) picked out Anrich Nortje at deep midwicket off the third ball of the 37th over to become Maharaj's first victim.
Jason Holder (0) then prodded nervously to Keegan Petersen at forward short leg the very next ball before Joshua Da Silva (0) became Maharaj's history ball when his tickle down the leg side was well caught by Wiaan Mulder.
The quick collapse saw the West Indies fall from 107/3 to 107/6, swinging the Test decisively in South Africa's favour at lunch.
The hat-trick was South Africa's first since Geoff Griffin's against England at Lord's in 1960 where he dismissed Mike Smith (99), Peter Walker (52) and Fred Trueman (0) in consecutive balls.
