  • For the hosts, Rabada was the pick of the bowlers. He picked up a 4-fer, thereby helping his side restrict the opposition to around 275. Phehlukwayo and Tahir were the other wicket-takers, apart from being economical. Paterson had a poor debut as he was taken to the cleaners by the tourists. It is a score above par as per history but the Proteas are too good a side to be easily written off. The pitch is still good for more runs and hence, the visitors cannot afford to bowl badly. Join us in a while for the South African reply.
  • The highest score for Bangladesh against South Africa in ODIs! They would be relatively happy with where they are placed at the halfway stage. And whom they have to thank for their effort? Mushfiqur Rahim. Yes, the guy who looked clueless in the Tests has played a marvelous innings today, easily his best among the 5 tons that he has in ODIs. He stitched good useful partnerships with Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman, helping his side post a good total on the board.
  • 49.6 OUT! 4-fer for Rabada but the visitors will be happy with their efforts. Similar delivery, Saifuddin aims to clear the fence again with a pull but miscues it to mid-wicket. Paterson backtracks and pouches it safely. BANGLADESH FINISH ON 278/7.
  • 49.5 SIX! Bang! Short delivery in line of the stumps, sits up nicely for Saifuddin. He pulls it with authority over deep square leg for a biggie.
  • 49.4 Down the leg side, Saifuddin lets it go. The batsmen run a single but it is cancelled by the umpire as the batsman was not offering a stroke.
  • 49.3 FOUR! First boundary for Saifuddin in his international career! Full delivery well outside off, Mohammad slams it past extra cover for a boundary.
  • AB de Villiers is holding his shoulder as he has been throwing the ball from the deep often. South Africa will hope that it is not too serious.
  • 49.2 Fullish on middle, Rahim backs away and drills it to long on to rotate strike.
  • 49.1 High full toss on off, Mohammad mistimes it uppishly over wide mid on. A run taken.
  • 49.1 Wide! Hurls this one way outside off, Saifuddin can do nothing about it.
  • 48.6 FOUR! Creative! Good stuff from Rahim. Full toss on middle and leg, Rahim shuffles across and paddle scoops it over short fine leg to find the fence. 8 runs from the over. 265/6
  • 48.5 Fuller in length outside off, stroked to long off for a single. The batsmen look for a run but it is not on offer.
  • 48.4 Yorker near the tramline. Saifuddin aims to carve it away but fails to make contact.
  • 48.3 Slower short delivery which has been quite effective on this surface. Pulled to deep square leg for a run.
  • 48.2 Phehlukwayo comes from around the wicket and bowls a full toss outside off. Saifuddin hits it straight to du Plessis at extra cover and crosses over.
  • 48.1 Back of the hand delivery well outside off, Rahim waits for it and cracks it towards deep cover. Tahir sprints to his left and slides to keep the ball in play. Only a run taken.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo back on for his final over.
  • 47.6 Sloppy work! Full toss on middle, Saifuddin turns it towards Paterson at mid-wicket who makes a mess of it. Concedes two runs in the process. 257/6
  • 47.5 On a length outside off, guided down to third man for a single.
  • 47.4 First run for Saifuddin in international cricket! Mohammad dances down the track to the length delivery aiming to hoick it across the line but gets it off the outer half to third man. A single taken.
  • 47.3 Length delivery outside off, dabbed to point.
  • Mohammad Saifuddin comes out to bat.
  • 47.2 OUT! Third one for Rabada, he is having a great outing! He steams in and hits the deck hard. It is on middle and leg. Hossain is in an uncomfortable position as he attempts to pull it away. Mistimes it towards mid-wicket where Amla takes a sitter.
  • The last time Bangladesh scored 250 in ODIs against South Africa was 10 years ago. It was at Guyana when they scored 251 and ended up winning it too. They are on course to get much more today, so chance of a win?
  • 47.1 FOUR! Hit with disdain! Back of a length delivery on off, Hossain makes room and slaps it past the diving fielder at short extra cover. That went to the boundary like a tracer bullet.
  • 46.6 On a length, cutting in. Rahim looks to dab it behind point but gets a bottom edge towards the keeper. 249/5
  • 46.5 Back of the hand slower delivery outside off, Nasir smashes it to wide long off for a run. He slams his bat on his pads in frustration. He could have hit it anywhere.

  • 45.4 The batsman opens the face of the bat and helps it to third man. They pick up a single.
  • 45.3 5th ODI ton for Rahim! What a brilliant knock it has been. Take a bow! Fullish outside off, Mushfiqur strokes it to sweeper cover and hares back for the second. The joy on his face is evident. He raises his bat towards the dressing room. Then kneels down and kisses the ground. He is the first Bangladeshi to score a century against South Africa in any format of the game. That is a superb effort from him after his struggles in the Test series.
  • Nasir Hossain is the new man in.
  • 45.2 OUT! Rabada strikes! Fullish outside off and width on offer, Rahman crouches and slices it uppishly towards sweeper cover. Paterson moves to his left and takes a well-judged catch. Perhaps he wanted to hit it a bit squarer but failed to execute it. End of a breezy cameo from Sabbir.

  • 43.5 SIX! That's a gift really and Rahman obliges! Full toss on leg stump, Rahman tonks it over deep mid-wicket for a biggie.
  • 43.4 FOUR! Deft! Fractionally overpitched outside off, Rahman uses the pace of the delivery well to place it past point for a boundary.
  • 43.3 Rahman wants to go over short fine leg as the fielder comes in but Paterson smartly bowls it full outside off. He wants to guide it towards third man eventually but fails.
  • Fine leg comes inside the circle.
  • 43.2 Very full around off, swinging in. Rahim glides it to third man for a run.
  • 43.1 Length delivery outside off, Rahman uses his feet and drags his heave to long on for a run. These two batsmen are in the zone now.

  • 42.6 FOUR! This one is even better! Full delivery outside off, Rahim gets into position quickly and reverse sweeps it over short third man to find the fence. 11 from the over. 221/4
  • 42.5 Floated delivery, blocked in a solid manner.

  • 42.3 Fullish on off, Rahman sweeps it all along the ground to deep backward square leg for a run.
  • 42.2 Quicker and flatter one on middle and leg, Rahim makes room and plays it to covers for a run.
  • 42.1 Floated outside off, eased to wide long off for a single.
  • 41.6 Three dots in a row! Very full wide outside off, Rahim has a slash at it but only connects thin air. Good finish to the over after being hit for a maximum. 210/4
  • 41.5 Full delivery, width on offer again. Rahim goes at it with hard hands again but misses it completely. This has been a good comeback by Paterson.
  • 41.4 Full toss well outside off, Rahim throws his bat at it but fails to connect. That could have been called a wide as it was close to the tramline.
  • 41.3 SIX! Boom! Good length delivery around off at a slower pace, Rahim lines it up and heaves it over deep mid-wicket for half a dozen. That came right off the screws. He is playing a terrific knock for his side.
  • 41.2 Full delivery in line of the stumps, Rahim makes room and digs it out.
  • 41.1 Where did the sound come from? Paterson hurls this one on off, Rahim backs away to slap it through the line but misses. As the ball goes past the stumps, there is a noise. Not sure where did that come from.
  • 40.6 This one is punched off the back foot through covers for a run. 204/4
  • 40.5 Nervy moment! Flatter one on middle and leg, worked towards short mid-wicket. Rahman takes off but he is sent back by Rahim.

  • 40.2 Fuller around off, Rahman pushes at it but gets it off the outer half to short third man.
  • 40.1 Starts off with a quicker one on off, pushed off the back foot to covers.
  • Time for Powerplay 3. Imran Tahir is called back for his final spell. Five fielders will be allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the end of the innings.
  • 39.6 Very full on middle, Rahim whips it to the man at mid-wicket who does well to stop it. 202/4
  • 39.5 Back of a length delivery outside off, cut straight to the fielder at point.
  • 39.4 Full length ball outside off, Sabbir strokes it to sweeper cover for a run. The batsmen think about the second run but the fielder is quick to attack the ball to deny them.
  • 39.3 On a length outside off, shaping in. Rahman strides forward to defend but gets it off the inner half down the track.
  • 39.2 Short and width on offer, Sabbir slaps it past point. The fielder in the deep runs to his left and saves a couple of runs for his side. 200 up for Bangladesh.

  • Sabbir Rahman strides out to bat. He has an ideal platform. Can he utilize it?
  • 38.1 OUT! The slower delivery at a shorter length has done the trick! Pretorious bowls it around off, Mahmudullah backs away, skips down the track and looks to go over covers but is early into the shot. Ends up getting a top edge towards wide mid off. Miller stands his ground and takes a regulation catch. The promising 69-run stand comes to an end.

  • 37.4 Length delivery outside off, punched off the back foot to sweeper cover for a run.

  • 37.2 Back of a length outside off, tapped behind point for a run.
  • 37.2 Wide! On a length wide outside off, Rahim lets it go.
  • 37.1 Mahmudullah is struggling against Phehlukwayo. Length delivery well outside off, he throws his bat at it but gets an inside edge besides the pitch on the leg side. The batsmen sneak in a run.
  • The average 1st innings score at this ground in ODIs is only 234. So Bangladesh are well set to cross that, how many will they get though? More importantly, how many will be enough?
  • 36.6 Camps back to the length delivery to tuck it to mid-wicket. 189/3
  • 36.5 Slower delivery around off on a shortish length. Rahim waits for it, hops and pulls it nicely to deep mid-wicket. The fielder in the deep races to his left to keep it down to a couple.
  • 36.4 Short delivery down the leg side, Mushfiqur goes for the hook but misses. De Kock dives to his left to make a good stop. One for the over signaled by the umpire.

  • 34.5 Cross seam delivery outside off, dabbed towards de Kock who dives to his right to make a half-stop. A single taken.
  • 34.5 Wide! Tennis ball like bounce on that. Shortish on middle, Mahmudullah ducks under it. Wide given for height. One for the over signaled by the umpire. That brings up the 50-run stand as well. It has been a well-paced partnership.

  • 33.5 Great comeback from Rabada. It is much a well-directed bouncer, Mahmudullah has to sway away from the line to evade it.
  • 33.4 SIX! What a hit! The sound felt like it came from a gun. Short delivery on off, Mahmudullah uses his feet and slams it over cow corner for a maximum. That was such a confident shot, amazing.

  • 33.2 Shorter in length on middle, Rahim makes room, looks to ramp it over the keeper but fails to execute the shot.
  • 33.1 Length delivery outside off, tapped with an open face of the bat to point.
  • Kagiso Rabada is back on.
  • Drinks! Despite the wickets at intervals, the tourists have not done too bad. Rahim has kept the scoreboard ticking but with a batting line-up as good as SA, they will know they need a tall score. Let's see how they go about their finish.
  • 32.6 Back of a length outside off, tapped to the right of the keeper. Quinton dives and stops it from going through. 165/3
  • 32.5 Good length around off, Mahmudullah turns it towards mid-wicket.
  • 32.4 Shorter in length outside off, pulled past the backward square leg fielder for a single.

  • 31.3 In the air... safe! Tahir bowls it outside off, Rahim goes for the sweep but gets a top edge. The ball does not carry to Duminy coming in from deep mid-wicket. He is creating chances here, Imran. A run taken.
  • 31.2 Fuller on middle, nudged towards mid-wicket.
  • 31.1 Turns it towards the leg side from his crease.
  • 30.6 Another short one, Rahim pulls it through square leg for a run. Not sure of this plan by SA to Rahim, he might throw his bat at one but he plays the short balls well, at least when you provide him with width. 155/3
  • 30.5 Shorter in length outside off, pulled towards de Villiers at mid-wicket. The ball goes to the right of AB who dives and throws the ball back towards the striker's end. No harm done though.

  • 29.4 Flatter around middle, nudged through mid on for a single.
  • 29.3 NOT OUT! Tahir bowls the googly outside off, Mahmudullah gets across to paddle it but gets hit on his pads. An appeal is turned down by the umpire. Tahir is confident of the dismissal and hence convinces his skipper about the review. It looked like the impact was outside the line there. Let's see what the replays have to say. Ultra Edge confirms no bat there. Time for Ball Tracker. Pitching outside off, impact - outside the line and that is that. South Africa have wasted their only review. In all of that, a leg bye was taken.
  • Faf du Plessis has opted for a review against Mahmudullah after a conversation with Tahir. It is regarding an LBW decision. The impact seems to be outside the line. The skipper doesn't look that confident himself.
  • 29.2 Flatter outside off, left alone by Mahmudullah.
  • 29.1 Shorter in length around off, punched off the back foot over mid on for a single.

  • 28.3 Back of a length outside off, Rahim taps it towards the off side.
  • 28.2 SIX! Carved! Good length outside off, Rahim comes down the wicket and slaps it over the cover fence for a maximum. That also brings up his 27th ODI fifty, he looks to be in a better frame of mind, now that he is not the captain. He will know he needs to carry on though.
  • 28.1 Short and wide outside off, Rahim throws his bat at it but misses.
  • 27.6 Lands it outside off, Mahmudullah drives it towards covers. 134/3
  • 27.5 Turns it towards mid on for a single.
  • 27.4 Rahim lofts it over covers for a couple of runs. That wasn't too far from the fielder inside the ring.
  • 27.3 CHANCE MISSED! Quicker and flatter googly outside off, spins in sharply, Rahim is hit on his pads as he looks to keep it out off his back foot. The players appeal but the umpire says no. They do not go for the review. Replays show that it would have been a close call with his bat and pad too close together.
  • 27.2 Rahim turns it towards mid-wicket from his crease.
  • 27.1 Shorter and outside off, Rahim finds the fielder with his cut shot. That should have been hit away to the fence.
  • 26.6 Taps this length delivery towards the leg side for a single. 131/3
  • 26.5 FOUR! Bad ball, put away! Short and wide outside off, Rahim with his height has to leap to get to it. He gets some bat on it and flays it over point for a boundary. Poor plan, that.
  • 26.4 Turns it towards mid-wicket from his crease.
  • 26.3 A tad short outside off, tapped to covers by Rahim.
  • 26.2 Tucks it towards mid-wicket from his crease.
  • 26.1 Good length just outside off, Rahim pokes at it from his crease and is beaten.
  • Faf gets back Dane Paterson for a bowl, to the new batsman.
  • Mahmudullah is the new man in.
  • 25.6 OUT! Tahir strikes! Floats it outside off, Shakib looks to drive it through the line. The ball takes the outside edge and flies quickly to Hashim Amla who gobbles the catch at first slip. It was the googly which was not picked by Shakib Al Hasan. He never looked settled against Imran. A wicket against the run of play but a wicket well earned by the bowler. 126/3
  • 25.5 This time the orthodox sweep from Rahim fetches him a single to deep square leg.
  • 25.4 FOUR! Here comes the reverse sweep! Fuller outside off, Rahim sits low and reverse sweeps one through the vacant point region for a boundary.
  • 25.3 Floats it outside off, Rahim comes forward and blocks it.
  • 25.2 Turns one through square leg for a single.
  • 25.1 Plays one back to the bowler.
  • 24.6 Lands it outside off, Shakib backs away and smacks it hard towards covers. Rabada has to dive to his left to stop it. Gets a hand to it and hence only a run taken. 120/2
  • 24.5 Rahim comes down and turns it through mid on for a single.
  • 24.4 Flatter around middle, Shakib comes down and pushes it towards covers. There is a wild throw at the bowler's end. Only a run taken though.
  • 24.3 Rahim turns one through the square leg region for a single. Also brings up the 50-run stand. They need to carry on.
  • Field change. Faf puts a man in at backward square leg.

  • 24.1 Shorter outside off, Rahim plays it with an angled bat towards short third man.
  • Another change in bowling, time for JP Duminy. Faf trying to get some overs out of the way here? For Dane Paterson? Who knows, let's see how JP goes.
  • 23.6 Another googly to end the over, Rahim tucks it through square leg for a single. Interesting over, that. 112/2
  • 23.5 Top edge! Lands it around off, does Tahir. Shakib sits low and goes for the sweep. Gets a top edge which does not carry to the fielder coming in from deep mid-wicket. Only a run taken.
  • 23.4 Slider around middle, pulled towards mid-wicket.
  • A slip in place along with a short third man, expecting a reverse sweep.
  • 23.3 Quicker and flatter googly around off, Shakib goes back to cut this one but is beaten for sheer pace. Two good balls in a row.
  • 23.2 Well bowled! Tahir loops it outside off, the googly, Shakib looks to play it through the off side but is beaten by the away movement. The keeper takes the bails off and appeals but no harm done.

  • 22.1 Good length around middle and leg, turned through square leg for a single.
  • 21.6 Flatter around leg, Rahim fails to clip it. The ball goes through to de Kock who takes it and appeals. Nothing from the umpire though. Good appeal, saved them the wide. 101/2
  • 21.5 Shorter around middle and leg, spinning in, Rahim looks to turn it through the leg side but is hit on his pads. That was the googly, which was not read by the batsman.

  • 17.2 Good length around middle, Rahim tucks it towards mid-wicket.

  • 16.5 Shorter in length around middle, pulled hard through square leg for a single.
  • 16.4 Dabs this length ball towards gully from his crease.

  • 16.2 Good length outside off, Shakib stands tall and taps it towards covers.
  • 16.1 Fuller in length around middle, Shakib drives it towards mid on from his crease.
  • Drinks are on the field now! This has been a good hour's play for South Africa. After being made to bowl, they have done well to pick up a couple of wickets. Shakib and Rahim are an experienced pair and they would be expected to take Bangladesh to a respectable total.
  • 15.6 Around middle and leg, tucked to fine leg for one run. 75/2
  • 15.5 Lands it fuller around middle and leg, flicked nicely but straight to the fielder at mid-wicket. There is a direct hit at the bowler's end but the batsman there is well in.
  • 15.4 This ball is defended from within the crease.
  • 15.3 Fuller around middle and leg, flicked to fine leg for a run.

  • 14.1 Hurled around off, driven off the front foot to mid off.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim, the Test skipper, is the next batsman in. He would love to erase the horrid memories of the preceding series and get back among the runs.
  • 13.6 OUT! Kayes departs. What a terrible way to lose your wicket. Pretorius hurls it on a length down the leg side, Imrul looks for easy runs. Tries to flick it away but all he manages is a thick edge that is gleefully taken by Quinton de Kock behind the stumps. Dwaine is happy and why wouldn't he be! Kayes didn't look too comfortable throughout his stay out there and now his misery comes to an end. 67/2
  • 13.5 Landed in line of the stumps, defended off the front foot.

  • 12.2 SIX! Kayes plays a pull shot to this short delivery. This one's gone all the way over the ropes for a six. Up go the arms of the umpire.
  • 12.1 Bowled on the pads, Shakib works it down the leg side for a run.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo is brought in to the attack now.

  • 9.6 This ball is driven down to mid on. 44/1
  • 9.5 The batsman works it down the leg side. One run added to the total.
  • 9.4 A tough chance there! Gone down. Tahir tosses it up in line of the stumps, Kayes looks to reverse sweep that. He gets a glove there but de Kock fails to latch onto that. The ball lobs off the keeper's gloves and so first slip couldn't get a hand to that. A close shave for Imrul.
  • 9.3 Floated in line of the stumps, defended off the front foot.
  • 9.2 This ball is flicked to the fielder at short fine leg.
  • 9.1 Flatter around middle and leg, flicked towards mid-wicket.

  • 8.6 This ball is driven to mid off. 43/1
  • Surprise, surprise! Shakib Al Hasan is the man walking in at number 3! Last time he came in at this position was against Zimbabwe in 2014 and scored a duck. However, we all know how authoritative he can be. Bold move from Bangladesh?
  • 8.5 OUT! Liton Das' stay at the crease ends! All credit to Rabada here, as it was a ball that had to be played. Landed on a length around off, swings away a touch, Das is committed to the shot and hence plays away from his body. The ball catches the outside edge of his bat and flies towards du Plessis at second slip who tumbles low to his right, grabs that and begins celebrating. The umpires though aren't sure whether the catch is clean and so they go upstairs. The soft signal is out. The replays confirm that it is clean indeed. Loud cheers in the crowd after the third umpire accidentally pressed the wrong button.
  • Faf du Plessis has taken a tumbling catch at second slip and claims it. The umpires aren't sure and take it upstairs. The soft signal is out!
  • 8.5 WIDE! A bouncer around middle and leg, ducked under by Das. Wide signaled by the umpire.
  • 8.4 On a length around off, the ball nips in a bit. Das gets an inside edge onto his pads as he looks to push it.

  • 8.1 This ball is pushed off the front foot towards covers.
  • 7.6 Fuller on the pads, flicked aerially through square leg for a brace. 15 runs off that over, very expensive. 42/0
  • 7.5 FOUR! That is not a good line and length at all! Bangs it short down the leg side, Kayes pulls it away through fine leg for a one bounce boundary.
  • 7.4 FOUR! Streaky runs but Kayes won't mind it at all! On a length around middle and off, Imrul looks to hoick it away. He gets a thick outside edge that flies over slips and rushes to the third man fence.
  • 7.3 Das picks up a run after gliding this to third man.
  • 7.2 Liton stays in the crease and pushes it back towards the bowler.
  • 7.1 FOUR! Chipped aerially for a boundary. It was a tad short around off and middle, Das hits it over square leg for a boundary.
  • 6.6 Confusion but all's well in the end! Kayes is looking a touch too fidgety here. Taps this in front of mid off and sets off for a non-existent run. Is sent back by his partner, even as Paterson gets there and hurls a wild throw at the striker's end. Replays show that Imrul's dive would have saved him. A run out is the last thing the tourists would want at this stage. 27/0
  • 6.5 This is driven towards mid off.
  • 6.4 Edged but just short! Rabada spears it across the batsman, Kayes gets a thick edge that lands just short of gully.

  • 6.1 WIDE! Full and swinging down the batsman's leg side. Kayes looks to flick but misses. There is a noise as the ball passes the batter but de Kock behind fails to collect that. A wide signaled. The sound may be of the bat brushing his pad.
  • 5.6 FOUR! Glorious! The shots off his blade get better and better. Paterson hurls it full around off and middle, Das leans forward and drives it straight down the ground for a boundary. 25/0
  • 5.5 This ball is flicked off his pads towards mid-wicket.
  • 5.4 FOUR! Textbook square drive. It is full and has enough width outside off. Liton drives it off the front foot past the diving fielder at point to help himself to another boundary. Das looked good in the Tests and here too, he has started confidently.
  • 5.3 Angled across the batsman, Kayes guides it towards third man for a run.
  • 5.2 Hurls it outside off, Imrul drives it a tad aerially towards covers.

  • 4.5 Rabada bangs it short around middle, Das crouches low to duck and let it go.

  • 3.1 This is outside off, pushed towards covers off the front foot.
  • 2.6 Fuller on the pads, flicked easily to fine leg for one run. 11/0
  • 2.5 Length delivery outside off, Das plays inside the line as the ball passes to the keeper.
  • 2.4 Chin music early in the piece! Rabada bangs it short around off and middle, Das ducks in time to let that go.
  • 2.3 A tad fuller in line of the stumps, Imrul turns it towards mid on for a run. It bounces a tad over the practice pitch there.
  • 2.2 Das opens the face of the bat to guide it towards third man for a single.
  • 2.1 Rabada is looking in good rhythm early here. He lands it on a length outside off, the ball nips in a bit. Das watches the ball closely through to the keeper.

  • 1.5 This ball is pushed towards mid on.
  • Fourth slip in place now.
  • 1.4 A huge shout but turned down! Paterson bowls it on a back of a length around middle and leg, Kayes looks to flick it but gets hit on the pads. The players appeal to no avail. The ball rolls through point as the batsmen take two leg byes. Height could have been a factor there.
  • 1.3 FOUR! How helpful a third slip would have been for the Proteas here! Paterson angles it across the batsman, who goes for the drive. Gets a thick outside edge that flies past second slip to earn him a boundary. That's the first one of the game, first runs for Imrul as well.
  • 1.2 Around off and middle, Kayes pushes it towards the off side and wants a run initially but is content without one, spotting a fielder there.
  • 1.1 Liton Das is away straightaway! Paterson bowls it around middle and leg, he flicks it away to mid-wicket for a run.
  • Dane Paterson it is, who will run in with the second new ball. Three slips in place.
  • 0.6 Bowled on the pads, Kayes misses the flick and wears it on the pads. A good start from Rabada, apart from the wide early on. 1/0
  • 0.5 On a length around off and middle, Kayes stays in the crease and shows the full face of the bat in defending that.
  • 0.4 Served in line of the stumps, pushed back defensively to the bowler.
  • 0.3 Back of a length ball around middle and leg, Imrul looks to clip it but fails to do so. Gets struck on the thigh pads.
  • 0.2 And this is a beauty! Rabada bowls it in the channel of uncertainty outside off, Kayes has a feel for it but misses. The ball wasn't far from the edge of the bat there.

  • 0.1 WIDE! Ahh! Of all the starts that South Africa would have thought about, this wouldn't be even close. Full and sprayed down the leg side, the ball swings further away. Kayes looks to flick but misses. Wide signaled.
  • So, we are all set to get underway at the De Beers Diamond Oval. The sun is shining bright and the weather looks good for a game of cricket. Imrul Kayes and Liton Das stride to open for Bangladesh. A decent start is something that they would aim for, for starters. Kagiso Rabada will steam in with the first brand new white circular object for South Africa. Two slips in place. Let's roll!
  • The tourists are without Tamim Iqbal and Mustafizur Rahman, who miss out due to injuries. Mohammad Saifuddin makes his debut for the visitors, who have surprisingly left out Soumya Sarkar and Mominul Haque. Dane Paterson makes his ODI debut for the hosts.
  • TOSS - Bangladesh call it right at the toss and they opt to bat.
  • The Proteas as well as the cricketing fans would welcome AB de Villiers back into the international circuit and hope to be awed by his antics. They have a full strength side to choose from and there would not be a drop in the intensity with which they play. Stay with us for what could be a game not worth missing.
  • Hello folks! It's time for the limited-overs leg of Bangladesh's tour of South Africa to kick off! Welcome to our coverage of the 1st ODI between the two sides played in Kimberley. Of late, Bangladesh have exceeded expectations in ODIs and we enter this game with a hope of the tourists providing a better challenge to the hosts. Mustafizur Rahman is ruled out due to a niggle and that isn't something that the visitors would like. Of course, it provides someone else to put up a performance of note.
  • So that's it from us for this game. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. South Africa will want to continue the hammering while Bangladesh will hope for some respite with a win. The 2nd ODI will be played on 18th October, 2017 at Boland Park, Paarl. Action begins at 1000 local (0800 GMT). We look forward to your company. Until then, it's goodbye and take care.
  • Man of the Match, Quinton de Kock is very excited to have got to bat. His side didn't need him much in the Tests and he is happy that got a chance here. Felt the wicket was a tad slow when they bowled and when they batted it skidded on and came nicely onto the bat. Is happy to contribute to the team's cause by scoring runs and spending time in the middle. Jokes that he has a more calming influence on Amla but goes on to add that it is a privilege to bat with the the senior partner.
  • Faf du Plessis says that they are playing really well. Calls it a dominating performance. Adds that they are feeling sorry for the Bangladeshi team as it has been a tough tour for them. Opines that they need to be ruthless. Credits his boys for being hungry and executing their plans. Reckons that the deck got a bit better to bat on in the second innings. Feels that change of pace was the way to go on this track. Informs that they have different tactics for every bowler. States that they wanted to give Phehlukwayo an opportunity if a wicket fell, when they were around 150. Ends by saying that de Kock was exceptional and Amla was brilliant as ever.
  • Mashrafe Mortaza begins by crediting Rahim's knock but laments the missed chances on the field. Admits that it was tough to get a breakthrough. Calls it a good wicket to bat on and hence they struggled to pick wickets. Reckons that Tests and ODIs are different. Not giving runs builds pressure and it leads to wickets in the latter. Informs that since Tamim Iqbal wasn't fit, they sent Shakib Al Hasan up the order. Opines that injuries to the key players cannot be blamed for the loss. Hopes that Iqbal gets fit for the next game.
  • The Bangladesh bowlers lacked discipline and the SA openers made them pay for it. Mashrafe Mortaza failed to inspire his troops and will have to turn things around quickly in this short series. The hosts will be delighted with their effort, they were very professional. Might want to rework on some of their bowling plans, but otherwise had a near-perfect day. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony.
  • Crushing win for South Africa, a record chase for them - highest run chase with no wickets lost. Both Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock were untroubled during their stay at the crease and helped themselves to a ton each. They hit the ball to all parts of the ground, broke records at the drop of a hat and made merry of the lives presented. It was sheer bullying if one can say. That they finished off the chase with so much time left and 10 wickets in hand, tells you everything about the bowling. It was toothless to put it mildly.
  • 42.5 FOUR! What a thumping victory for the hosts! Length delivery on off, de Kock heaves it through mid-wicket to find the fence. Take a bow, Quinton and Amla. Absolutely scintillating batting display by the duo. Big smiles all around in the Protea camp. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 10 WICKETS WITH 43 BALLS TO SPARE!
  • 42.4 FOUR! Quinton de Kock almost seals it in style! Bowled on a good length around off, de Kock hoicks it over mid-wicket. The ball seems to have gone all the way. The umpires are not sure and refer it upstairs. Replays show the ball landed just short of the ropes. So 1 more needed!
  • 42.3 This ball is punched towards covers.
  • 42.2 Short delivery around off and middle, pulled away through backward square leg for a run.
  • 42.1 Dropped again! This time Nasir Hossain, the culprit and Quinton de Kock the beneficiary. Mortaza hurls it on a length around off from round the wicket, the batsman charges down and hits it towards long on. The fielder there backtracks a tad but fails to hold onto it. He has a second attempt at that yet fails to cling on. One run taken.
  • 41.6 Another yorker around off, dug out towards backward point. 272/0
  • 41.5 Yorker around off, Amla digs it out towards backward point.
  • 41.4 Taskin, you don't get out if the ball hits the bat in front of the stumps! It was bowled fuller around middle and leg, de Kock flicked it away through square leg for a run. Strangely though, Ahmed yells a loud appeal. Grins shyly when he realizes that it went off the bat.
  • 41.4 WIDE! Sprayed full and down the leg side, Quinton flicks but misses. There was a slight sound as the ball passed the batter which made the bowler appeal. Wide signaled by the umpire in response.
  • 41.3 FOUR! Taskin bowls a slower off-cutter around middle, de Kock stays in the crease and hammers it over mid-wicket. The ball races away to the fence instead of going over, as he got it off the toe end of the bat.
  • 41.2 This delivery is pushed through covers for a run.
  • 41.1 On a length around leg, Amla shuffles a tad and looks to clip it away but misses. The keeper collects and Bangladesh appeal to no avail though. They think of a review but decide against it. Good on them as the Snicko didn't spot an edge there.
  • 40.6 Mortaza runs round the wicket and lands it around off, the batsman punches it to mid off. 265/0
  • 40.5 Short around off, pulled away in front of square on the leg side for one run.
  • 40.4 Mortaza bowls it around middle and leg, de Kock drives it straight back. But the bowler's momentum takes him to his left due to which he is unable to prevent a run there.
  • 40.3 Speared outside off, driven through covers for a run.
  • 40.2 Bowled outside off, hit straight to the man stationed at backward point.
  • 40.1 Mashrafe lands it on a length around middle and leg, Amla tucks it through backward square leg. Such is the fitness and urge to score runs by these two, that they hare back for two runs.
  • Third Powerplay has been signaled. A maximum of five fielders can be outside the circle now. However, with the way these two are playing, even 11 players out won't help the visitors.
  • 39.6 Another dab towards third man for a run. It was on a length outside off. 260/0
  • 39.5 Shorter delivery on the pads, pulled through backward square leg for a run.
  • 39.4 Delivered on a length outside off, Amla plays it with an angled bat to third man to get a run.

  • 39.1 Short around middle and leg, pulled through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 38.6 Quinton de Kock gets to his second score over 150! This is bowled on the pads, turned through mid-wicket to get to the milestone. 254/0
  • 38.5 This ball is driven to mid off. He thinks of a single before aborting. The fielder hits the bull's eye at the striker's end but the batter is safe.
  • 38.4 SIX! De Kock is seeing the cricket ball like a football. He positions himself much before the ball is delivered and has no trouble in hitting it in the area that he wants. This time he shuffles across, Mortaza hurls it around middle and leg. The southpaw swings his bat and collects a biggie as the ball lands on the full on the backward square leg rope. The umpires have a second look for confirmation and are happy that it is a maximum indeed. He moves to 149 with that.
  • Entertainment galore - This is the joint highest partnership for any SA batting pair in ODIS.
  • 38.3 Landed in line of the stumps, pushed back towards the bowler.
  • 38.2 Hashim guides this to third man for a single to get off strike.
  • 38.1 On a length around leg, pushed to long on for a run.
  • Mortaza is back on.
  • 37.6 Short ball, pulled away for a run. 245/0
  • 37.5 There is the 26th ODI ton for the Mighty Hash! Gets it off a dab towards third man. He has looked solid as ever and classy as always. Knowing the bearded batter, he would look to carry on till the end without throwing it away now. Well played, master!
  • 37.4 FOUR! Haughty Hashim helps himself to another boundary that takes him to 99! Taskin bowls it short and wide, Amla doesn't need a second invitation to free his arms. He does so and plays it over point for a boundary. The fielder in the deep didn't stand a chance of cutting that off.
  • 37.3 Served outside off, hit straight to the backward point fielder.
  • 37.2 Length ball on the leg, pulled away through square leg for a run.
  • 37.1 Dropped! Sums up Bangladesh's day today. It is speared fuller around off and middle, Amla looks to drive it on the up. Ends up offering a catch to Ahmed who spills the chance. What's worse, the ball deflects to the leg side and the batsmen run one.
  • Taskin Ahmed is back to roll his arm over.
  • 36.6 Now Hashim opens the face of the bat to guide it to third man for a run. Very costly over as 18 came off it. 237/0
  • 36.5 FOUR! If my junior can do it, even I am not far, says Amla with this glorious drive! Hurled fuller outside off, Amla plays it beautifully through covers to help himself to a boundary.
  • 36.4 A tad short outside off, Quinton cuts it through point for a run.
  • 36.3 FOUR! Three in three! This one is even straighter and even more gracious! Fuller ball around off, timed perfectly down the ground for another boundary.
  • 36.2 FOUR! And another one, this time past mid off. The captain is the man at that position and he couldn't do anything there. Full toss around off, de Kock smashes it down the ground for another boundary.
  • 36.1 FOUR! De Kock helps himself to another boundary. Saifuddin runs in and spears it on the pads, the southpaw flicked it through short fine leg. The fielder there took ages to get down and the ball races away to the fence. Mortaza doesn't seem happy with the effort.

  • Drinks have been called on the field. How identical this break is for both the sides - the hosts need it because both their openers are still at the crease, while the visitors would welcome it as it is the only break that they have got with no wickets fallen yet.

  • 18.2 34th ODI fifty for the Mighty Hash! What an innings this is turning out to be. Even though he has scored faster than run-a-ball, there haven't been many risky shots played. This one is driven through mid off for a run. Knowing Amla, he would look to make this a big one.
