Keshav Maharaj's hat-trick against the West Indies during the first session of day four will remain the talk of the town for weeks to come.

The Proteas spinner ripped through the West Indies, removing Kieran Powell, Jason Holder and Joshua da Silva with successive deliveries in his ninth over.

His hat-trick is  the second ever by a South African after Geoff Griffin against England in 1960.

Maharah was helped with his hat-trick delivery thanks to an incredible catch by Wiaan Mulder at leg-slip.
