Blast from the past: Ambrose and Walsh destroy SA hopes

Journalist

Today in sports history: April 23
1992 — South African cricket captain Kepler Wessels and Peter Kirsten resume with South Africa on 122/2 and needing just 79 runs more for victory on the final day of the historic one-off Test against the mighty West Indies in Bridgetown. Wessels is on 74 and Kirsten 36. But then disaster, by the name of Courtney Walsh, strikes, dismissing Wessels for the addition of one more run. Kirsten gets his half century before being bowled by Walsh, but the rest of SA’s batsmen contribute just eight runs as they collapse to 148 all out. The last seven wickets fell for 25 runs. Walsh finished with 4/31 and Curtly Ambrose 6/34.
