In 2010 South Africa led the 3-match Test series against West Indies by 1-0 before both sides travelled to Bridgetown for the final match. Owing to a thigh injury, Darren Sammy was ruled out of the Test, and Nelon Pascal was expected to take his place. During the first Test of this series, Pascal made his debut but wicketless that saw him fall for the 2nd Test match.
Pascal suffered a neck injury during the warm-ups ahead of the game which ruled him out of the game. The West Indies team has decided to pick Guyana pacer, Brandon Bess, as the toss took place. Interestingly, Bess was at that point in the High-Performance Centre, which was a 5 km drive from the venue and was expected to reach only after the scheduled game started.
Chris Gayle won the toss, however, and electing to bat meant that Bess would not be missed at first. Brandon Bess has finally made it to Kensington Oval after the game’s first over. Bess had a disastrous debut, adding to frustration his second new-ball indiscipline. He bowled seven no-balls, given distance, strayed on the pads and fell short each time to be dealt with by the batsmen who had slowly begun to loosen up. Brandon Bess conceded 92 runs in the 13 overs, he bowled through the two innings and picked up only one wicket in exchange. South Africa won the game by seven wickets while Bess never played again for the West Indies.
