One-day debutant Imran Tahir's four wickets helped South Africa restrict West Indies to 222 in their World Cup Group B clash in Delhi.

Having sent the Windies into bat, the Proteas used spin to maximum effect - from the very first over, bowled by Johan Botha - as Pakistan-born Tahir finished with figures of four for 41 in his 10 overs, with paceman Dale Steyn also grabbing three wickets.

Darren Bravo had initially boosted the West Indies fightback with his 73 off 82 balls but despite his half-brother Dwayne chipping in with 40 towards the end, a collapse could not be prevented as the last four batsmen fell for just 13 runs.
