  • Bangladesh once again proved to be toothless. The wicket was suitable for batting, yes, but during the lack of wickets, there was a failure to apply pressure and clog the runs up. Boundaries came freely and they paid the price for it. It was only for a brief period towards the end when the ball started reversing a bit that we saw them reap some rewards. Now, they face their most difficult task yet on this tour. The ball will grip and turn more and there will be more reverse on offer for the bowlers. The top order will be key for the visitors to get something here today. Join us in a while for the chase.
  • A strong finish to the innings has seen South Africa put up a mountain of a total on the board. After the way their openers set it all up with a century stand, and then Faf and Markram continuing in the same fashion, the 400-mark was well within their sights. But then, a double blow in quick time, which included an injury to the skipper and Markram's run out saw the Proteas stumble a bit. However, a late impetus from Behardien and Rabada saw South Africa cross 350 and put them in a dominating position.
  • 49.6 FOUR! Finishes the innings off with a boundary! Fuller in length by Rubel on middle, Behardien heaves it over mid-wicket and finds the fence. A very good last over, 18 from it. SOUTH AFRICA FINISH ON A MAMMOTH 369 for 6.
  • 49.5 Fuller in length outside off, Farhaan drives it square through the off side for a couple.
  • 49.4 Driven through mid off by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 49.3 FOUR! What a cameo this is turning out to be! This time through the off side. Rubel serves another gift, a full toss outside off. Kagiso strokes it past the diving cover fielder for a boundary.
  • 49.2 SIX! Young KG is on the charge here! A full toss on middle, Rabada walks across and helps it over the fine leg fence for a maximum. Rubel was looking for a yorker but missed his length by a meter.
  • 49.1 Fuller in length on middle, the batsman strokes it through covers for a run.
  • 48.6 FOUR! He had some swag about that shot! Fuller in length outside off, by Taskin! Rabada goes inside out over covers for a boundary. Second of the over, a good one for South Africa. 350 up now. 351/6
  • 48.5 Very full on leg stump, Farhaan drives it down to long on for a run. Bangladesh won't mind these singles.
  • 48.4 In the air... but safe! Slower ball by Taskin on leg stump, Rabada tries to flick but closes the face early. He gets a leading edge and it goes on the bounce to the long on fielder for a run.
  • 48.3 FOUR! SHOT! Short and on middle by Taskin! Rabada takes on the challenge of pulling it and does well. He times it over mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 48.2 Very full outside off, Rabada misses the drive and it goes through to the keeper.
  • 48.1 Fuller in length on middle, Behardien digs it out to mid-wicket for a run.

  • 47.5 Fuller in length outside off, Kagiso drives it through covers for a run.
  • 47.4 A brilliant yorker has Rabada down on the ground! A yorker on leg stump, Rabada misses the flick. The ball hits him flush on the boots. Very good bowling.
  • 47.3 The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 47.2 Shorter in length on middle, Rabada pulls it through mid-wicket for a couple.
  • 47.1 Fuller in length on off, the batsman drives it towards mid off for a run.
  • Kagiso Rabada is the new batsman.
  • 46.6 OUT! Second in the over for Taskin! South Africa are losing their way a little now! Fuller in length by Taskin, swinging away. Phehlukwayo tries to force it down the ground but gets an edge to the keeper who takes it. The players appeal and the umpire signals it out. Bangladesh are finishing the innings off well here. 335/6
  • 46.5 A yorker on leg stump. All Behardien can do is dig it out towards long on for a run.
  • 46.4 A full toss outside off, Andile gets it off the outside edge down to third man for a run.
  • 46.3 Fuller in length outside off, Andile drives it to the man at covers.
  • 46.2 FOUR! He needs no sighters! Taskin errs in line and drifts it on the pads. Phehlukwayo flicks it through backward square leg for a boundary.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo is the next man in.
  • 46.1 OUT! Another one bites the dust! Taskin bowls it fuller in length on middle, Mulder goes for the flick but misses and gets struck on the pads. The Bangladeshi players appeal and the umpire raises his finger immediately. Not a good outing with the bat for the debutant as he departs early. A good period for Bangladesh.

  • 45.1 OUT! A huge, huge wicket courtesy a brilliant catch by the skipper! Mashrafe leading from the front. The big fish AB de Villiers is walking back. He did not have the same impact as the last game. A slower full ball outside off by Rubel. The batsman tries to go over covers but miscues it towards the cover fielder. Mortaza there did not look comfortable under it, but he dived to his left, got two hands to it and clung on. Bangladesh will now look to restrict South Africa to something under 360.
  • 44.6 FOUR! He is persisting with the shorter stuff but it is only resulting in runs! Bouncer again on the body of the batsman, comes at a good height. Behardien pulls it through backward square leg for boundary. 325/3
  • 44.5 FOUR! One short ball too many! Too easy for Behardien! Taskin bangs it in short and outside off, sits up to be hit. Farhaan slaps it over covers for a boundary.

  • 44.3 Fullish ball outside off, the batsman drives it through point for a run.

  • 44.1 Fuller in length on off, AB mistimes his drive back to the bowler.
  • Taskin Ahmed is back into the attack.
  • 43.6 Exposes all his stumps even before the bowler has delivered. Such is his confidence. Rubel bowls it full and outside off, AB reaches out and forces it through covers for one. Retains strike. 314/3
  • 43.5 Back of a length delivery outside off, Behardien goes on his back foot and steers it through point for a single.
  • 43.4 FOUR! Quality shot! A low full toss outside off, Farhaan leans into the shot and drives it crisply through covers for a boundary.
  • 43.3 Appeal for an lbw! Fuller in length on middle, angling down, Behardien fails to flick and is hit on the pads. The bowler appeals as the batsmen cross for a couple of runs. It's given as leg byes and now Bangladesh opt for the DRS. Missing leg is the verdict from the Hawk Eye! Waste of a review.
  • 43.2 Driven through the covers by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 43.1 Flicks it with the angle towards wide long on for a run.
  • 42.6 SIX! BOOM! Beautiful, he makes it look so easy. Fuller in length outside off, AB de Villiers lofts it over covers for a maximum. A wonderful way to finish the over and it also brings up the 300 for South Africa. 304/3

  • 41.1 Works it with the angle through mid-wicket for a run.
  • Farhaan Behardien is the next man in.
  • 40.6 OUT! The direct hit has done the job this time! Markram is short of his crease, even the dive does not save him. An unwanted second to be honest. A slower ball on middle, Aiden works it towards square leg and completes a run. He sets off for a second. Imrul Kayes in the deep is quick to the ball and scores a direct hit at the keeper's end. The players appeal and the umpire goes upstairs. Replays show that the batsman is well short of his crease. A good debut innings by Markram comes to an end. He will be disappointed with himself for getting out in that fashion, got out similarly on his Test debut as well (that was more heartbreaking as he was on 99 then). For Bangladesh, they now have two new batsmen at the crease. Just what they wanted. 289/3
  • A direct hit is always close and Markram might just be struggling to make his ground here. An appeal for a run out at the striker's end has been taken upstairs.
  • 40.5 Flicks it with the angle through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 40.4 FOUR! Off the mark with a boundary! Two balls are all he needed to get his eye in. De Villiers comes down the track and hits it over the bowler's head for a boundary.
  • 40.3 Back of a length on off, the batsman defends it towards covers.
  • 40.2 Good length on off, AB drives it back to the bowler.
  • Ab de Villiers strides out to the middle.
  • Oh no! The physio is out to attend du Plessis who might have done some damage to his lower back as he is seen holding that part. He is on 91 and he also can't have a runner. So he is limping off, it might be something really serious. In fact, David Miller is now carrying him on his back, climbing the stairs and taking him all the way to the dressing room. Get well soon, Faf!
  • 40.1 Slower ball on middle, Faf flicks it towards mid-wicket and they complete a run. He wants a second. The fielder is quick to the ball and has a shy at the non-striker's end but misses. Had he hit Markram would have been a goner. Du Plessis seems to have hurt his lower back while turning for the second run. He is holding that part and goes down flat at the non-striker's end. He is screaming in pain. Not looking good.
  • Powerplay 3 has been signaled. Now, a maximum of 5 fielders can be placed outside the ring. Also, Mashrafe Mortaza is back into the attack.
  • 39.6 Shorter in length around middle, du Plessis pulls it through mid-wicket for a run. 281/2

  • 39.2 Fuller in length around off, du Plessis drives it to covers.
  • 39.1 FOUR! Exquisite! Fuller in length on off, Faf drives it straight down the ground for a boundary. He is in ruthless form.

  • 38.4 Flatter on off, Markram shuffles across and sweeps it towards deep square leg. It does not quite hit the middle but still enough to get two.
  • 38.3 Fires it in on leg stump, Faf works it towards mid-wicket for a quick run.
  • 38.2 Shorter in length around off, Markram cuts it through covers for a run.
  • 38.1 Comes down the track and drives it back to the bowler.
  • 37.6 FOUR! Drilled! Faf comes down the track and gets to the pitch of the ball. He smashes it down to the long on fence for a boundary. South Africa are on the charge here. 268/2
  • 37.5 Angles it on the pads, Faf flicks it through the leg side for two.
  • 37.4 FOUR! A brilliant effort by the fielder in the deep but to no avail! A poor line and it has been dispatched! Short and wide outside off, Faf cuts it through point. The fielder in the deep runs fast to his left, puts in a dive, tries to push the ball back in but is unable to do so. Another boundary for South Africa.

  • 36.4 Dances down the track and drives it down to long on for a run.
  • 36.3 Plays it with the angle through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 36.2 NOT OUT! Faf punches the short ball through covers and completes a run. He sets off for a second. The fielder is quick to the ball and scores a direct hit at the non-striker's end. The players appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays show Aiden has made his crease quite comfortably.
  • A run out appeal has been taken upstairs at the non-striker's end against Aiden Markram. Direct hits are always close but the fielders don't look excited.
  • 36.1 Shorter in length outside off, Aiden punches it through the off side for a run.
  • Shakib Al Hasan is into the attack.
  • Drinks!
  • 35.6 FOUR! Save your legs, Mortaza! Faf comes down the track to the length ball and slaps it past the bowler for a boundary. That went to the fence like a tracer bullet. 15 runs from the over. South Africa are on the charge here. 244/2

  • 35.4 This time he punches it through the off side for an easy single.

De Kock dances down the track and tries to flick but is undone by the flight as he gets a top edge which lobs towards Hasan. He positions himself under it and takes it comfortably.

Replays show that the dive there has saved de Kock. 127/1
  • An appeal for a run out has been taken upstairs against de Kock at the striker's end. The Bangladesh players don't look that confident.

  • 17.5 OUT! Bavuma falls two runs short of his fifty! A needless way of getting out. He was playing so well. Mehedi tosses it up on leg stump, it turns ever so slightly into the batsman. Bavuma gets to the pitch of it and tries to go big but miscues it down to long on. Das pouches it safely by going down low. The 119-run stand comes to an end. Can Bangladesh build on this now?
  • 17.4 Comes down the track. Hasan sees it and drags his length back. De Kock adjusts and taps it towards covers for a run.
  • 17.3 Drives it with the spin through mid on for a run.
  • 17.2 Short around off, turning away. De Kock goes on the back foot and cuts it through covers for a run.
  • 17.1 Flatter on the stumps, de Kock pushes it to the man at cover.
  • Drinks break! A much-needed one for Bangladesh. They're being taken to the cleaners by this opening pair of de Kock and Bavuma. The visitors need a wicket and they need it quick, otherwise they run the risk of facing a humongous total.
  • 16.6 Length delivery around off, defended out from inside the crease. 116/0
  • 16.5 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 16.4 Bouncer on the stumps, pulled along the ground to deep square leg for a double.
  • 16.3 Angling back in on middle and leg, worked away with the angle on the on side for a single.
  • 16.2 Good length delivery on off, Bavuma punches it past the bowler and takes a quick single, beating mid on who gets to the ball quickly and has a shy at the non-striker's end but misses.
  • 16.1 Just ahead of a length on middle and off, Temba is solid in defense.
  • 15.6 EDGY FOUR! Mehedi a bit unlucky there, a slip in place and that would have been a wicket. After a series of slower delivery, he puts some pace on this one. De Kock looks to drive and gets an edge which goes past the keeper and away to the third man fence. 112/0
  • 15.5 Easy single. Down the ground to long on and the batsmen cross over.
  • 15.4 Dropped short and de Kock charges out. It comes at him slower than expected so he has to adjust and make do with a single through the covers.
  • 15.3 Spinning in on middle and leg, Bavuma flicks it off his pads through square leg for one.
  • 15.2 Coming back into the batsman, he works it pleasantly through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 15.1 Bowls it slower through the air and outside off, Quinton with a solid front foot defense.
  • 14.6 Shorter in length which is pulled away towards fine leg for a run. 104/0
  • 14.5 Fuller in length outside off, eased down to mid off for nothing.
  • 14.4 FOUR! As if the runs weren't coming easily enough for South Africa, that Bangladesh decide to gift them more runs. De Kock taps this to point, there's an unnecessary shy at the bowler's end and the ball ricochets off the stumps and races away to the mid-wicket boundary. This is poor stuff from the visitors. The 100-run stand is up with this as well.
  • 14.3 FOUR! Bang goes Quinton de Kock! Quality shot, he's such a delight to watch when he plays like this. So elegant and fluent. Full and right in the slot, he lofts it beautifully over mid off and picks up a boundary.
  • 14.2 Short of a good length outside off, Temba stands tall and punches it through covers for one.
  • 14.1 Fuller ball outside off, sliced through the cover region for a single.
  • Rubel Hossain back on.
  • 13.6 15th ODI fifty for Quinton de Kock! The man is on a roll, the runs keep coming for him. He's such a vital cog in the South African unit, in all formats of the game. Superb stuff. Drives this full ball to long off and reaches the milestone with ease. Set for another big hundred? 93/0
  • 13.5 Nicely done. Closes the face and works it through mid-wicket for an easy run.
  • 13.4 On a flatter trajectory outside off, driven through the covers for a single.
  • 13.3 The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 13.2 Flatter and quicker outside off, pushed into the covers.
  • 13.1 Slider from around the wicket, defended from deep inside the crease.
  • 12.6 Bumper to end the over, it's ducked and evaded easily. 90/0
  • 12.5 Fantastic effort! Full toss on the pads, Bavuma flicks it through backward square leg. Seems it'll go all the way, given the quick outfield, and it almost does too, but Imrul Kayes does well to run across to his left from fine leg and stop it with a dive. Mahmudullah backs him up and throws it back in. The umpire wants to make sure if the stop is clean and replays show that it is. Great effort, keeps the batsmen down to just two.
  • 12.4 FOUR! The little man packs a real punch! What a hit! Expecting the fuller ball Bavuma shimmies down the track and just hammers this back over the bowler's head for a rocketing boundary.
  • 12.4 Wide! Short again but down the leg side this time, Bavuma looks to pull but misses.
  • 12.3 Short ball into the body, pulled down to fine leg for one run.
  • 12.2 Takes the fielder on again as Bavuma drives it to mid on. This time the run is completed more easily as the fielder doesn't collect the ball cleanly on the first attempt.
  • 12.1 Chance of a run out! Length ball around off, Quinton taps it in front of backward point and both batsmen set off. Risky stuff though as the fielder quickly charges to the ball and under arms it at the striker's end diving forward. He misses, much to Bavuma's delight, who was struggling to get back in. Maybe the fielder should have gone at the other end as de Kock was late in taking off.
  • 11.6 Turning away from around off, de Kock goes back, allows the ball to turn and places it square towards point for a single. 80/0
  • 11.5 Full ball attacking the stumps, driven down the track where the fielder misfields. A single results.
  • 11.4 Over the wicket now, it's full on middle and off, Bavuma leans across a touch and wrists it to mid on.
  • 11.3 Sliding in on middle and leg, de Kock works it square on the leg side and crosses over.
  • 11.2 Switches the angle for de Kock, comes around the wicket and tosses it up outside off. The southpaw gets close to the pitch with a big lunge forward and eases it to the man at cover.
  • 11.1 Full and flat outside off, no spin on this occasion as Bavuma drives it to sweeper cover. One run added to the scoreboard.
  • Mehedi Hasan comes back on to bowl.
  • 10.6 Was in no control of that shot at all, but such is his day that anything he hits is going away. Short ball outside off, de Kock looks to pull but the ball goes off the high part of the bat and lobs over Taskin's head. Falls safely as mid on chases it down. Two runs to the total. 76/0
  • 10.5 Short of a good length outside off, pushed away from the back foot on the off side.
  • 10.4 Straighter in line, it's tucked off the pads a bit square on the leg side for one.
  • 10.3 Back of a length, from over the wicket to Bavuma, another pull shot from the little man through mid-wicket. Would have gone all the way but the fielder in the deep does well to cut it off. A couple of runs are taken.
  • 10.2 From around the wicket to de Kock, it's angling into him from a length and he too pulls it through the gap in the leg side for a run.
  • 10.1 Shortish ball on off, Temba brings out the pull shot and hits it through mid-wicket aerially for a single.
  • Powerplay 2 has been signalled. Maximum of four fielders are now allowed outside the circle. Bangladesh are using one less at the moment as Taskin steams in...
  • 9.6 Quicker and flatter around off, Bavuma with a little shimmy down the track knocks it to long off to keep strike. 69/0
  • 9.5 Bit quicker through the air, on middle and off, stays right behind the line and defends.
  • 9.4 Use of the feet to get close to the pitch and it's driven down to long on for one.
  • 9.3 Awkward, but effective. Temba Bavuma kneels down and across to this full ball and plays a funny-looking paddle sweep towards short fine leg. Rubel Hossain stops the ball from going past him with a solid dive. Just a single taken.
  • 9.2 Brings his wrists into play and works it just wide of the mid on fielder for a single.
  • 9.1 SIX! Quinton de Kock is having a ball out there. From over the wicket, it's loopy, full and right in de Kock's zone. He dances down quickly and smokes it back over the bowler's head for a huge maximum.
  • 8.6 Short and wide outside off, cut square through point for a single. 59/0
  • 8.5 Length delivery on the fourth stump line, defended out from within the crease.
  • 8.4 Back of a good length outside off from around the wicket, punched hard but straight to the cover fielder.
  • 8.3 FOUR! As beautiful as the sunshine over at Buffalo Park. Magnificent stroke. Half-volley outside off, Quinton de Kock with a scintillating drive straight back down the ground. No chance for anybody to stop that, the fast outfield takes it all the way to the boundary.
  • 8.2 Fuller length ball outside off, driven through the covers for a brace.
  • 8.1 Length delivery around off, cramping de Kock for room and it almost does the trick. He looks to force it through the off side but gets an inside edge past the leg stump. Need more of this from the Bangladesh bowlers.
  • Taskin Ahmed is into the attack now.
  • 7.6 FOUR! A potential good over ruined because of a boundary on the last delivery. Full on the stumps, bit straighter in line which allows Bavuma to flick it well through the mid-wicket area. Right in the gap and it's away to the fence in a flash. 50-run stand up, great going for South Africa! 52/0
  • 7.5 The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 7.4 Straighter one on middle and off, Bavuma stays behind the line and blocks.
  • 7.3 Comfortably done. De Kock leans forward and eases this full ball down towards mid on for a single.
  • 7.2 Tossed up on middle stump, flicked away through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 7.1 Shakib into the action and there's drama instantly. Floats it up on middle and leg, it's angling in and catches Bavuma on the front pad as he misses his flick. Loud appeal all around, but the umpire remains unmoved. Good decision, replays show it was going down leg. Close call, though.
  • Bangladesh's star player, Shakib Al Hasan to roll his arm now. A slip in place. The visitors in desperate need of a breakthrough.
  • 6.6 Length ball on middle and leg, de Kock looks to whip it through mid-wicket but ends up getting an inside edge onto his pads. 46/0
  • 6.5 Back of a length ball which is kept out by de Kock standing tall.
  • 6.4 The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 6.3 Good length ball in the channel outside off, this time Bavuma offers a defensive shot.
  • 6.2 FOUR! The outfield is lightning quick at Buffalo Park. Bavuma didn't hit that hard at all, just leaned into the shot and drove it through the gap in the covers.
  • 6.1 Cutting back in off the surface as it's pitched on a length, tucked away on the leg side but for no run.
  • 5.6 Fuller length delivery on middle and off, worked away with a closed face through the mid-wicket area for a couple of runs. 41/0
  • 5.5 Fuller again, around off, met with a defensive bat in response.
  • 5.4 FOUR! SHOT! That's a sensational shot. Full and outside off, Quinton de Kock crashes this through the covers to send it across the rope. Was there to be hit and he cashed it, wasn't going to miss out for anything.
  • 5.3 An authoritative walk down the track from de Kock. Looks to slog it through the leg side but doesn't exactly middle it. Off the inner half but it's still hit hard. The man at mid-wicket does well to dive quickly low to his right and make the stop.
  • 5.2 Back of a length on the stumps, kept out off the back foot with ease.
  • 5.1 Pure timing from Temba Bavuma, but it's matched with an equally good fielding effort from Sabbir Rahman. Fuller ball outside off, Temba drives it sweetly through the covers. Sabbir runs after it hard and fast and manages to pull it back inside the rope. Lovely enthusiasm, saves a run for his side.
  • 4.6 Keeps it tight, Mortaza. Bowls this length ball very close to the off stick. De Kock cuts it but finds short third man. Bavuma wants the run but is quickly sent back by his partner. Good call. 32/0
  • 4.6 Wide! Fires it down the leg side, no shot offered by the batsman. The umpire raises his hands and signals a wide.
  • 4.5 On a good length on the stumps, Bavuma with a comfortable flick through to deep mid-wicket for one more.
  • 4.4 Quite straight in line, no trouble at all for the left-handed opener to work it behind square on the leg side for one.
  • Third man has gone a lot squarer, behind point effectively.
  • 4.3 Moves inside the line of this length ball on off and nudges it to mid-wicket for a single.
  • 4.2 On the shorter side of things again, Bavuma with a back foot punch, finds the man at cover.
  • 4.1 Back of a length delivery outside off, Temba stands his ground and pushes it to the man at extra cover.
  • 3.6 Shortish in length and outside off, firmly punched to extra cover from within the crease to end the over. 28/0
  • 3.5 FOUR! Lovely shot. Beautiful timing. Fullish in length outside off, Quinton de Kock just meets the ball with his straight bat. Doesn't hit it too hard, but it still beats the diving mid off fielder. Mashrafe Mortaza from mid on gives it a long chase and tries to pull it back just inside the rope with a dive, but fails in his attempt to do so. A boundary results!
  • 3.4 Marginally ahead of a length, outside the line of off stump, hit once more to mid off.
  • 3.3 Goes a little fuller again, de Kock with a big stride forward drives again, straight to the man at mid off this time.
  • 3.2 Bit fuller this time, lands it on a length just outside off, de Kock plays this on the up as he drives it to covers. Couldn't pierce the gap, straight to the fielder.
  • 3.1 Starts off with a back of a length delivery which is going across, de Kock rises and punches it square to point.
  • Bowling change. Rubel Hossain replaces Mehedi Hasan after just one over by the off spinner. He conceded 12 runs in that found it difficult to get his length right.
  • 2.6 Finishes with a tidy delivery, but still 6 runs have come off it. Length ball on off, Bavuma with a relatively straight bat offers a punch down towards wide mid on. 24/0
  • 2.5 Easily done. De Kock wrists this length ball through backward square leg and rotates strike.
  • 2.4 Walks across to this shorter length ball and tucks it in front of square leg for a single.
  • 2.3 FOUR! That's a brilliant shot from Temba Bavuma! Back of a length on off, he picks up the length early, dances down the track and pulls it aerially over mid-wicket to send it across the boundary line.
  • 2.2 Short of a good length around the off stump, kept out well on the off side.
  • 2.1 Good length ball on middle and off, Bavuma works it straight to the mid-wicket fielder.
  • 1.6 FOUR! That's the third off the over, and it's come in the same area! This is good batting from Quinton de Kock! Like the previous two boundaries, de Kock rocks back and cuts it behind point for a boundary. 12 off the over, a big one for South Africa. 18/0
  • 1.5 Stays back to this one which is pitched shorter in length, the left hander gets behind the line and guards it out.
  • 1.4 Sliding in from around off, kept out from within the crease.
  • 1.3 FOUR! Consecutive boundaries for de Kock! It's short, it's wide and there to be smacked away! Quinton de Kock waits for it and brings out the cut again past point. Picks up another boundary easily.
  • 1.2 FOUR! That's bread and butter for Quinton de Kock! Mehedi drops it short and wide outside off from around the wicket, the southpaw hangs back and cuts it hard through point for a boundary.
  • 1.1 Darted well outside off, punched off the back foot into the off side.
  • Spin straightaway! Mehedi Hasan will be bowling with the second new ball from the other end. A slip in place for him.
  • 0.6 Fraction straight in line, Bavuma moves inside the line and tucks it to the mid-wicket fielder. Good first over for the Proteas, 6 runs off it. 6/0
  • 0.5 On the fifth stump line, angling across the left hander, he cuts it late to third man and gets off the mark with a run.
  • 0.4 Short and wide outside off, Quinton de Kock flays it but finds the man at cover-point. Quite unfortunate, made a sweet connection off the bat.
  • 0.3 Outside off on a good length once more, Temba uses the swing away from his body to dab it down to third man for a single.
  • 0.2 Better line this time. Length delivery closer to off with a hint of away movement, Bavuma confidently meets it with a straight blade.
  • 0.1 FOUR! And Temba is away! Movement instantly and Mortaza bowls it wide outside off, Bavuma reaches out to it and cracks it between point and cover-point for a boundary. Went to bed last night and woke up today to get it going with a boundary. What better way to start the day!
  • We are set to get underway. It will be Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock to kick things off with the bat. Mashrafe Mortaza will take the first new ball for his team. Two slips in pace for him. Here we go...
  • Toss - South Africa win the toss and opt to bat! As expected, the hosts have a few changes in the team. Hashim Amla, JP Duminy and Dwaine Pretorius sit out for Aiden Markram (ODI debut), Temba Bavuma and Willem Mulder (International debut). For Bangladesh, they suffer a big blow with Tamim Iqbal out with a thigh injury. Soumya Sarkar replaces him. Also, Nasir Hossain is replaced by Mehedi Hasan.
  • We can talk as much about pride, honour, bouncing back and all those cliches in cricket but the reality remains that it's a David versus Goliath encounter and Davids win mostly only in books. As a cricket fan or enthusiast you can be hopeful of a good contest but somewhere deep down you know, it's a no match, especially after watching the last two games. Having said that, there is a famous quote - Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. Let us hope today, we get to witness one of those good things.
  • So that's it from us! Like in the Test series, South Africa have continued their dominance in the ODIs with a whitewash against the Tigers. The visitors still have a chance to save some face, with the 2-match T20I series starting on the 26th in Bloemfontein at 1800 local (0400 GMT). The shortest format of the game has proved its unpredictable nature time and time again. It'll be Bangladesh's best chance to strike back. Join us for that. Till then, goodbye and take care!
  • AB de Villiers comes in for the interview in place of injured Faf du Plessis. He says that it was fun and it's easy to captain a team like this. Feels they had an exceptional series and considers today's performance as the best of the lot. Terms it as a clinical win and lauds Faf du Plessis for his knock. Praises his bowlers and is happy that they didn't give any sniff to Bangladesh. He is impressed with the debutants (Mulder and Markram) and is excited for Temba Bavuma.
  • Man of the Series, Quinton de Kock says the wickets that were prepared were good for batting, especially for opening batsmen. Adds that no performance of his in this series was best in particular, but admits the 168 felt really good. Credits Temba Bavuma for the way he played after coming into the side and hoped that himself and Temba could have made big scores today. Ends by saying that the T20I series will be a good challenge, so is looking forward to it.
  • Faf du Plessis has been adjudged the Man of the Match for his superb unbeaten 91. He was unfortunate to have been retired hurt due to a back injury, but his knock was still good enough to earn him the award.
  • Mashrafe Mortaza says all three matches were quite difficult but they can learn a lot from it for the future. Admits batting and bowling are concerns, especially the bowling as they must learn how to take early wickets. Rues the loss of Tamim Iqbal and Mustafizur Rahman as they're quality players. Wants to win the T20I series and finish their tour on a high.
  • Apart from Shakib Al Hasan's knock and his partnership with Sabbir Rahman, there wasn't much fight shown by Bangladesh. For South Africa, their pacers set the tone nicely with Dane Paterson leading the way by picking early wickets and then the slower bowlers did the rest. Aiden Markram snaffled a couple of wickets and had a dream debut. All in all, yet another abysmal performance by the visiting team and they have a long way to go as far as their overall improvement is concerned (outside Asia).
  • Another comfortable win for South Africa and they have whitewashed Bangladesh in the ODI series. It was once again a no match with the visiting team looking way below average. Their bowlers were taken to the cleaners by the Protea batsmen and in reply to a gigantic total, the Bangla Tigers succumbed under pressure. They never were in contention of chasing down the target against some clinical bowling by South Africa.
  • 40.4 OUT! SOUTH AFRICA WIN THE MATCH BY 200 RUNS! A sensational performance, dominating stuff, have got over the line comfortably. Tossed up on the stumps, Mehedi Hasan kneels to slog and slog he does. Gets no elevation on it and it's straight into the safe hands of AB de Villiers at short mid-wicket.
  • 40.3 Wrong 'un around off, spinning in, Mehedi backs away and places the cut to backward point.
  • 40.2 Googly on middle, Hasan sweeps it down straight to short fine leg.
  • Rubel Hossain is the last batsman in for Bangladesh.
  • 40.1 OUT! Tahir gets his first wicket of the game and he'll be a happy man! Looped up from around the wicket outside off, Taskin Ahmed slogs it with the spin over mid-wicket. Doesn't hit it well, off the toe end as he's beaten in the flight and it's straight down the throat of the substitute fielder Duminy at deep mid-wicket who makes no mistake in taking it.
  • Powerplay 3 signalled. South Africa can now have maximum five fielders outside the ring.
  • 39.6 Stays rooted inside the crease and guards it out safely. 169/8
  • 39.5 Full outside off, driven square on the off side. Dot ball.
  • 39.4 Outside off on a length, played to point but it's straight to the fielder.
  • 39.3 Played to mid-wicket region by the batsman. The batsmen have picked up a couple of runs.
  • 39.2 Full on the stumps, driven back down to mid on.
  • 39.1 Dropped! But, in reality, was a little difficult to take. Mehedi Hasan cuts it straight to Bavuma at point. The ball pops in and out of his hands, was a simple one on a normal day. But in this case, the sun was in his eyes which is why he lost the ball. Unfortunate for the bowler, should have had a wicket there.
  • 38.6 Stays back and keeps it out off the back foot this time. 167/8
  • 38.5 'Round the wicket now, it's floated around off and spinning in, blocked off the front foot.
  • 38.4 Straighter one on middle and leg, turned to mid-wicket for a single.
  • 38.3 Tossed up outside off, knocked into the covers.
  • 38.2 Pushes this towards mid off and takes Bavuma on. Dangerous stuff as the little man is an exceptional fielder. He fires a throw at the bowler's end but misses. Had he hit, Taskin would have been gone. Single completed.
  • 38.1 The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery.
  • 38.1 Wide! Down the leg side, Ahmed looks to flick but misses. Wide called.
  • 37.6 This full delivery is driven without much power down the ground towards mid off. 164/8
  • 37.5 On the fuller side of things, outside off, driven to the cover fielder.
  • 37.4 Lands it on a length in the channel outside off, Hasan has a tame push from inside the line and hence gets beaten.
  • 37.3 Fullish in length and outside off, driven through mid off by Ahmed for a single.
  • Taskin Ahmed is next in.
  • 37.2 OUT! Edged and taken! Length delivery very close to off, holds its line as Mortaza pushes inside the line. The ball takes a feather and de Kock does the rest. South Africa just two wickets away from victory now.
  • 37.1 Fired full and outside off, Hasan looks to drill it on the off side but misses and so does de Kock. A bye is taken by the batsmen.
  • 36.6 Angling back in on middle and leg, catches Mortaza on the pads as he looks to work it across the line. It lobs and falls over on the off side. 162/7
  • 36.5 Wide outside off this time, Mehedi reaches out to it and pushes it behind point. Gets a single for doing so.
  • 36.4 Full and straight from Mulder, it's played back to him with the full face of the bat.
  • 36.3 Short ball on middle, pulled in front of square leg for one.
  • 36.2 Takes some pace off it as it's bowled on a length outside off, Mashrafe pokes inside the line and gets beaten.

  • 35.6 Marginally ahead of a length outside off, pushed down the ground towards mid off. 156/7
  • 35.5 Coming back in on middle and leg, worked away on the leg side for nothing.
  • 35.4 Another ball short in length and another pull from the Bangladesh skipper, over mid-wicket again but just a single this time.
  • 35.3 Short ball angling into the body, Mortaza pulls it over mid-wicket. De Villiers chases after it and pulls it just inside the rope with a dive. Keeps the batsmen to just two runs.
  • 35.2 The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 35.1 Bit ahead in length and outside off, played away into the off side.
  • 34.6 Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. No run to end the over. 153/7
  • 34.5 Driven towards the mid-off region. No run.
  • 34.4 Angling into the batsman around off, defended from the crease.
  • 34.3 Almost a run out! A length ball outside off, Hasan taps it down to point and the non-striker was outside the crease. Bavuma senses that and has an immediate shy at the bowler's end. It would have been touch and go in case of a direct hit. The replays show that Mashrafe would have been just in.
  • 34.2 FOUR! Nicely done. 150 up for Bangladesh! Short in length around leg, Mehedi hooks it fine down the leg side for a boundary.
  • 34.2 Wide! Short and down the leg side, Mehedi tries to pull but misses.
  • 34.1 Pitches it up and outside off, it's driven through the line, a confident shot but straight to the cover fielder.
  • 33.6 Back of a length delivery on off, defended off the back foot. 148/7
  • 33.5 FOUR! Flashes and flashes hard! Plenty of width on offer outside off, Mortaza throws his heart and soul on it, gets it away from the toe end and it screams away to the third man fence.
  • 33.4 Edged but didn't carry! Good length ball angling into the batsman, around off and Mortaza has to play at it. He pushes inside the line and edges it behind. De Kock collects the ball with his right hand but it's on a bounce.
  • 33.3 Good shot! A length delivery outside off has been square driven on the up past the diving point fielder. Good stop in the deep by Rabada saves a run.
  • 33.2 Full and outside off, driven to covers.
  • 33.1 On a length and wide outside off, Mehedi chases it away from his body, a loose shot attempted and it catches the inner half of the bat. Rolls safely to mid-wicket though.
  • Dane Paterson is back on.
  • 32.6 Good length ball on off, Mortaza presents a straight bat in defense. 141/7
  • 32.5 Driven through mid on by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 32.4 A little bit of width on offer outside off, Mashrafe tries forcing it through covers but it takes the outside edge and goes to third man for a run.
  • 32.3 FOUR! That's a poor delivery and deserved the treatment. A half-volley on the pads, Mortaza has no qualms in flicking it through backward square leg for a boundary.
  • 32.2 Mortaza is clueless! A length ball angling into him, around middle and leg, he is early into the flick shot and gets a leading edge. Falls safely somewhere in the off side region.
  • 32.1 Nearly a return catch! Full in length angling into the batsman, Mortaza chips it straight back towards the bowler who attempts to catch it in his followthrough but it falls just short.
  • Willem Mulder is back on.

  • 31.1 Loopy and full on off, flicked on the leg side towards mid-wicket.
  • Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza to take the bat next.
  • 30.6 OUT! Markram gets his second! He is having a fantastic debut! Serves a slider around off, skidding away from the batsman, Sabbir once again attempts to go big over the off side but ends up edging it behind. De Kock takes a sharp catch and straightaway jumps in appeal. The finger goes up almost immediately and Bangladesh lose their last recognized batsman. 135/7
  • 30.5 FOUR! Loopy and outside off, Sabbir slices his attempted square drive over cover-point for a boundary.
  • 30.4 Flighted and full outside off, stroked through covers for a single.
  • Hold in play! Some issues with the outfield near mid on. David Miller who was on the field when the decision for run out was referred stepped on an area from where soil has come off leaving a big hole. The groundsmen are at work and in the meanwhile, drinks have been taken.
  • 30.3 Just in! Tossed up ball outside off, driven straight back and the bowler tried to stop it. But it burst through his palms and went on to hit the stumps behind. Sabbir was momentarily outside the crease but then dragged his bat in. They appealed for a run out but the replays confirmed that Rahman had his bat behind the line on time.
  • Run out appeal against Sabbir Rahman is referred upstairs by the umpire. Looks close...
  • 30.2 Flighted ball outside off, driven through extra cover for a brace.
  • Mehedi Hasan is the new batsman.
  • 30.1 OUT! Shakib holes out next ball! Flighted full ball around off, Shakib sits down on one knee once again attempting the slog sweep. Going against the turn ain't a good idea and he picks out Duminy (sub) at deep mid-wicket. He makes no mistake and the 67-run partnership has been broken. Markram gets his maiden ODI scalp as Bangladesh slip further.
  • 29.6 Dropped by AB de Villiers but it was a tough one! Tahir gives this one some extra flight and lands it full around off, Shakib moves back to create room and then slogs it across the line. It comes from the bottom half of the bat and balloons in the air over mid-wicket. AB runs back, gets his hands to it but fails to hold on. Always tough to run back and take those. They cross for a run. 128/5
  • 29.5 Flatter and on off, Shakib stays back and punches it to covers.
  • 29.4 The batsman works it down the leg side. They pick up a single.
  • 29.3 Goes on the back foot and plays it down to covers. Looks for a run but it's not on.

  • 29.1 Short and outside off, Rahman hits it hard from the back foot but finds the cover fielder.
  • 28.6 FOUR! Finds the gap! Shakib jumps out of the crease, reaches the pitch of the delivery in a flash and clobbers it past extra cover for a boundary. Rushing through the overs, South Africa. 122/5
  • 28.5 Follows the batsman down the leg side and fires in a fuller length ball, Shakib pushes it right back.
  • 28.4 Short in length and on off, Shakib hops back to make room and slaps it through the line. The wide mid off fielder makes a good diving stop.
  • 28.3 Steps out of the crease and flicks a full ball through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 28.2 Flighted and landing outside leg, Sabbir tries to sweep but misses. Half a shout for lbw but nothing from the umpire.
  • 28.1 Tossed up ball on middle, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 27.6 Loopy and outside off, eased through mid off for one. 117/5
  • 27.5 Shortish on off, punched to covers.
  • 27.4 Rahman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 27.3 As expected, Tahir cuts down his length. Bowls it short and outside off, Sabbir whacks it through the line but the point fielder makes an excellent stop.
  • 27.2 FOUR! Top shot! Flighted full ball outside off, Rahman is on the front foot in a flash, anticipating it to spin away and hammers it through covers for a boundary.
  • 27.1 Brilliant fielding, Bavuma! Tossed up ball on off, Shakib sits back clueless and tries to defend. Gets it away from the inside edge and Bavuma makes a terrific diving stop at short fine leg. A single taken.
  • 26.6 FOUR! Spoils a good over. Short and down the leg side, Sabbir top edges his attempted pull shot down to fine leg for a boundary. 50-run stand comes up! 111/5
  • 26.5 Floated and on middle, defended back to the bowler.
  • 26.4 Loopy and on middle, stopping a bit onto the batsman, Sabbir moves back to flick but ends up playing a bit aerially. Doesn't carry to de Villiers at mid-wicket.
  • 26.3 Tossed up ball on off, reverse swept by Sabbir but he found short third man.
  • 26.2 Skidding through the surface after landing around middle and leg, it's eased through square leg for a couple of runs.
  • 26.1 Flighted and full ball on off, Sabbir gets back and defends it towards the bowler.
  • Aiden Markram is into the attack now.
  • 25.6 Gets forward to a full ball and drives it to mid off. Good comeback in the over by Tahir after going for a boundary first ball. 105/5
  • 25.5 Googly outside off, played down from the crease to covers.
  • 25.4 Flatter and outside off, defended from the crease to the off side.
  • 25.3 Flighted and full on middle, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 25.2 Turning the other way outside off, Shakib pokes inside the line and misses.

  • 24.6 FOUR! Terrific shot! Sabbir gives the charge to a length ball and smashes it over mid on for a one-bounce boundary. The connection made was brilliant. 101/5
  • 24.5 Shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 24.4 Too straight in line, Shakib clips it through backward square leg for a single.
  • 24.3 Good length ball angling into the batsman, Sabbir tries to work it through mid-wicket but it takes the inner half of the bat and runs down to fine leg for one.
  • 24.2 Shortish and on middle, worked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • A false run as Rabada loses his run-up and returns to his bowling mark.
  • 24.1 Angling into the batsman, on a fuller length, Shakib takes his front foot forward and pushes it towards mid on.
  • 23.6 Floated full ball outside off, a traditional leg spinner, Shakib leans forward and drives it through mid off for a single. 94/5
  • 23.5 Another wrong 'un, more on the loopier side outside off, Shakib once again plays it out safely from the back foot.
  • 23.4 A googly, bowled in the flatter trajectory around off, Shakib stays back and keeps it out on the off side.
  • 23.3 Uses his feet to get down the track and knocks a full ball down to long on for one.
  • 23.2 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 23.1 Half century! Flighted leg spinner on middle, Shakib plays it with the spin to deep mid-wicket for a single. 35th ODI fifty for him, he is fighting a lone battle at the moment.

  • 22.4 A length ball on off, Shakib works it away on the leg side but straight to the mid-wicket fielder.
  • 22.3 Driven through mid on by the batsman. No run.
  • 22.2 FOUR! Poor delivery, short and angling down the leg side, not rising much either, Shakib nicely gets on top of the bounce and pulls it fine down the leg side for a boundary.
  • 22.1 Fuller and on off, driven back to the bowler.
  • 21.6 Googly landing outside off and turning back in from a shorter length outside off, Rahman moves back and defends it. Wonderful display of leg spin bowling. Top over! 85/5
  • 21.5 Fuller and outside off, driven to extra cover for a single.
  • 21.4 Not picked this one either. A googly on off, turning away, Shakib loosely plays at it away from his body and pushes it off the outer half of the bat to backward point.
  • 21.3 Another googly around off, once again Shakib is all at sea. Fails to pick and tries to just push it away. No connection made and the batsman is disappointed.
  • 21.2 Lovely delivery, a googly landing on middle and curling away, Shakib fails to pick it and ends up pushing and missing inside the line.
  • 21.1 A touch short in length and on off, Shakib punches it from the crease to covers.
  • 20.6 EDGY FOUR! Rabada switches to over the wicket for the right-hander and serves a sharp length ball outside off, Sabbir pushes inside the line and edges it wide of first slip for a boundary. 84/5
  • 20.5 Slants in a length ball on off, Shakib moves back and pushes it with soft hands to mid off for a run.

  • 20.3 Back of a length delivery on off, defended off the back foot.
  • 20.2 Short in length and around off, Shakib taps it down wide of backward point and looks for a run. His partner is not interested as the point fielder rushes towards the ball.

  • Kagiso Rabada to have another burst.
  • 19.6 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 79/5
  • 19.5 Tossed up ball outside off, driven through mid off for a single.
  • A slip in place. In the previous game, Shakib had edged one behind off Tahir's bowling. Trying to replicate the same again?
  • 19.4 Tossed up ball outside off, Shakib defends it off his back foot.
  • 19.3 Goes for the googly this time but it's short and outside off, Sabbir moves back and punches it down to long off for one.
  • 19.2 Appeal for an lbw, nothing from the umpire. A flighted ball landing full around middle, Sabbir tries defending but gets an inside edge onto the pads.
  • 19.1 Starts with a short ball outside off, Rahman rocks back and smashes it past extra cover for a couple. Not the ideal length to start with!
  • Spin time, folks! Imran Tahir, the leggie, is introduced into the attack.
  • 18.6 Probably too close to cut but Rahman still manages to pull it off, although from the bottom half of the blade. It races down to third man and they take a single. 75/5
  • 18.5 The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 18.4 Straighter in line, nudged behind square leg for one.
  • 18.3 Aerial but no harm done! Back of a length delivery angling into the batsman, Sabbir walks across the line to hit it on the leg side but gets a top edge. It just clears mid-wicket and they take a single.
  • 18.2 Movement back into the batsman from a fuller length around off, Shakib moves forward and across to push it towards mid on. One run added to the total.
  • 18.1 In the air for a while but no dramas really for Shakib. A full length delivery outside off has been hit on the up. Doesn't carry to mid off.
  • 17.6 Identical to the last delivery, this time Shakib beats the fielder inside the ring with his flick shot and sends the ball in the deep mid-wicket region. A single taken. 5 from the over. 71/5
  • 17.5 Lands it on a good length around middle, Shakib flicks it on the leg side but finds mid-wicket.
  • 17.4 Short in length and outside off, Rahman steers it through point for one.
  • 17.3 Fetches a length delivery from outside off and works it in front of square leg for a run. Run rate required is close to nine and a half, so these singles won't do any good to them.
  • 17.2 Angling in a length ball on middle, Sabbir helps it through mid-wicket for another single.
  • 17.1 Good length ball on middle and leg, Shakib turns it behind square leg and takes a single.
  • 16.6 Shortish and outside off, Sabbir goes hard at it but fails to middle his shot properly. It finds the cover fielder. Dot ball to end a tidy over. 66/5
  • 16.5 A back foot defensive shot offered by Rahman.
  • 16.4 Good length ball just outside off, Sabbir gets behind the line and blocks it down solidly. The chase at the moment is going nowhere for Bangladesh. Anyway, after losing half the side, it's supposed to be so. Intent is lacking though.
  • 16.3 A little short in length and on middle and leg, Shakib glances it fine down the leg side for one.
  • 16.2 Good chase, Behardien! A length ball outside off, it's been driven on the up with excellent timing through mid off. Farhaan chases it and pulls it back just before the rope. Saves two for his side.
  • 16.1 Bowls it from around the wicket and angles in a full ball on middle, Shakib plays it on the leg side but finds short mid-wicket.
  • 15.6 Length delivery just outside off, Rahman once again tries flashing through the line but it takes the bottom edge and hits him on the thigh pad. 63/5

  • 15.4 The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 15.3 Works it on the leg side but once again fails to find the gap.
  • 15.2 Straighter in line, it's worked with gentle hands on the leg side, finds mid-wicket.
  • 15.1 Fuller in length and outside off, pushed off the front foot to covers.
  • 14.6 Good length delivery kicking off the deck a bit, Shakib keeps it out from the back foot. 63/5
  • 14.5 Fullish in length outside off, driven through the covers for a run.
  • 14.5 Fires it right up there, on off, Sabbir brings a straight blade down to defend it from the inner half on the leg side. No ball signalled by the umpire here, that's because Mulder knocked the bails over at his end with his leg while running in. So, a Free Hit will be coming up on the next delivery...
  • 14.4 Serves in the corridor of uncertainty, Sabbir has nothing to do with it.
  • Sabbir Rahman is the new man in.
  • Drinks are on the field!
  • 14.3 OUT! That's dead plumb! Straighter in line, on a length, Mahmudullah decides to go across the line. And if you're doing that, you can't afford to miss, which he does on this occasion. The ball catches the back pad and the umpire has no trouble in raising his finger to the lbw appeal. Willem Mulder picks up his first wicket in international cricket, he won't forget this moment any time soon.
  • 14.2 Full ball outside the line of off stump, Mahmudullah takes a big lunge forward to drive it to cover.
  • 14.1 Swinging back in on middle and leg, whipped away to deep mid-wicket for a single.

  • 13.5 Keeps it full again, just outside off, driven with a straight bat to mid off.
  • 13.4 Full and straight, hit right back in the bowler's direction.
  • 13.3 FOUR! Oh, that's a cracking shot! You knew the moment it came off the bat that that was a boundary. Fuller around off, he leans into it and drives it hard off the sweet spot of the bat through the covers, beating the man in the deep.
  • 13.2 Some movement off the surface, defended out safely.
  • 13.1 Short of a good length on middle, looks to pull but is instead hit on the body.
  • 12.6 Length ball around off, kept out right under his nose. 55/4
  • 12.5 What's Mahmudullah doing there? Almost got Shakib run out, crazy stuff. He taps it in front of short third man and starts to run. Shakib is halfway down the track and then suddenly, he turns around. Al Hasan then has to track back and if the throw was at his end, he'd have been a goner for sure.
  • 12.4 Excellent stop from Behardien! Shakib smacks this fuller ball over Mulder's head. Seems it'll race away to the fence but Farhaan anticipates it well. Moves quickly to his left from mid off and dives to stop it. Keeps the batsmen to just a single.
  • 12.3 Served on a length just outside off, pushed on the up to the cover region for no run.
  • 12.2 Fuller length ball on the stumps, driven to the mid off fielder. Won't get any run for it.
  • 12.1 Chance of a run out! Fraction straight from Mulder, Mahmudullah works it just wide of short mid-wicket and takes off. The fielder charges to the ball and has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Would have been touch and go had there been a direct hit.
  • 11.6 Veering down leg, nudged to square leg for a single. 53/4
  • 11.5 Good length ball around off, defended from within the crease.
  • 11.4 Wicket-to-wicket line, it's worked through mid-wicket for one.
  • Mahmudullah comes out to bat next.
  • 11.3 OUT! That's a poor, poor shot from Mushfiqur Rahim! Things were going well, the partnership was slowly forming, he just needed to stay out there with his partner. A rash shot which you usually wouldn't expect from him. He dances down to this length ball and looks to clear mid off. Doesn't middle it well, so ends up spooning it in the same area. Rabada there just backpedals a few paces and takes a simple catch. The visitors are falling further.
  • 11.2 Fuller again, Shakib drives again, gets it wide of mid on this time which earns him a single.
  • 11.1 A delivery which is fullish in length, on middle and off, Al Hasan drives it back down the ground towards mid on.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo comes into the attack as well.
  • 10.6 Short of a length well outside off, cut away square through the off side. The batsmen cross over for an easy run. 50/3
  • 10.5 Sprays it on the pads again, works it down to fine leg for one.
  • 10.4 Makes connection with the bat this time, works it away on the leg side but for nothing.
  • 10.3 Swinging in but it's a little too sharp than he'd have liked. Catches Rahim on the thigh pad but it's angling too far down. Hence, no appeal.
  • 10.2 Bit of width offered outside off, it's dabbed down to third man for a single.
  • 10.1 Mulder with a fullish length delivery outside off, Shakib drives it to the cover area where the fielder collects it.
  • Powerplay 2 signalled. A maximum of 4 fielders will be allowed outside the ring till the 40th over. Willem Mulder, the debutant, is introduced into the attack.
  • 9.6 Loud appeal for a caught behind, to which the umpire shows no interest. Length ball angling down, Rahim looks to flick and there's a noise as the ball passes Mushfiqur Rahim. So, de Kock appeals. It's eventually shown in the replays that the ball brushed the thigh pad and nothing else. Quinton kind of sensed it later as he gestured that to de Villiers who looked keen on taking the DRS. 47/3
  • 9.5 Good running between the wickets. Taps this in front of mid on and both batsmen take off. Al Hasan takes the fielder on there and beats his throw with ease.
  • 9.4 FOUR! This is buffet bowling from Paterson here! Angles it in on middle and leg, Shakib whips this through backward square leg for consecutive boundaries.
  • 9.3 FOUR! Finds the gap and finds it well! Fuller outside off, Shakib meets it with a crisp drive and beats the diving mid off fielder through his right. After he's beaten, the quick outfield does the rest.
  • 9.2 Outside off on a length, hit straight to point.
  • 9.1 Back of a length delivery outside off, Shakib is up on his toes as he offers a hard punch to extra cover.
  • 8.6 Short ball to end the over, Rahim ducks and evades. 38/3
  • 8.6 Wide! The ball is down the leg side but the batsman still goes after it. The umpire signals a wide.
  • 8.5 Full on middle and leg, it's flicked towards mid-wicket where Andile makes an excellent half-stop to keep the ball from the fence. Just a single results. Excellent work.
  • 8.4 Shortish delivery angling down, helped down to fine leg for an easy single.
  • 8.3 In the channel outside off, kicks off the deck a touch, Rahim waits for it before tapping it in front of covers.
  • 8.2 Again making it come back into the batsman, it's met with a rock solid defensive shot.
  • 8.1 Seaming into the batsman from a good length, Mushfiqur works it straight to the man at square leg.
  • 7.6 Works it off his pads and places it square on the leg side. 35/3
  • 7.5 Vicious bouncer on middle and off, the southpaw looks to take on the pull but the bounce gets too big on him.
  • 7.4 Full and attacking the stumps again, Shakib with a straight blade drives again, this time straight to the bowler.
  • 7.3 FOUR! Shot! Nice balance, good followthrough and an excellent presentation of the bat. Fuller from around the wicket on middle, Shakib Al Hasan drives it beautifully down the ground and across the long on fence for a boundary.
  • 7.2 Shapes back into Mushfiqur Rahim, it goes off his pads and falls on the on side. Leg bye collected by the batsmen.
  • 7.1 Cramps the batsman for room but Shakib still manages to get it away off the inner half towards mid on. Quick single taken.
  • 6.6 Going away from around off, steered to point. Dot ball to end the over. 29/3
  • 6.5 Landed on a length in line of the stumps, from over the wicket, Rahim offers a solid bat in defense.
  • 6.4 Touch fuller in length, it's driven towards mid off for a quick single.
  • 6.3 Sharp bumper from Rabada. It's quick and accurate just outside off, Shakib has to arch back a bit and let the ball sail over him.
  • 6.2 From around the wicket, it's on a good length outside off, Shakib miscues his punch towards Behardien at cover. Like Rabada in the previous over, he misfields in a similar manner and concedes a double. Poor stuff, this.
  • 6.1 Inward movement again, on middle and leg, tucked to backward square leg for a brisk run.
  • 5.6 Full delivery attacking the stumps, driven to mid on. 25/3
  • 5.5 FOUR! That's a gift, a rather poor piece of effort from Kagiso Rabada. Shakib pulls this back of a length ball down towards fine leg. Rabada gets low to collect it but the ball just goes through his fingers and touches the rope behind.
  • 5.4 Back of a length on the stumps, kept out off the back foot.
  • 5.3 That's in the air but safe! Mushfiqur Rahim survives a scare! Length ball to which Rahim walks out. Makes room and looks to clear the covers. Doesn't connect well and Behardien is there. He moves behind a little to his left but the ball still eludes him. Close call, a single taken.
  • 5.2 Swinging back in heavily from around off, Rahim comes half-forward to defend but ends up getting an inside edge back onto his pads.
  • 5.1 Short of a good length outside off, Mushfiqur is rock steady in defense.
  • 4.6 Length delivery outside off, left alone to end the over. 20/3
  • Shakib Al Hasan walks into the middle next.
  • 4.5 OUT! There it is! Sarkar has played at every ball in this over, so Rabada has baited him in. Hurls it in the off stump channel, draws him forward and makes him go for the expansive drive. Sarkar nicks it and the ball flies behind. Markram at first slip has his work cut out though, the ball comes to him really fast but he does extremely well to stretch his left hand out and take a blinder. Another wicket down, Rabada picks up his first, Bangladesh lose their third.
  • 4.4 Banged in short, very close to off, blocked.
  • 4.3 That was in the air for a brief moment, fell just short. Good effort though not letting the ball go past him. Length ball around off, Sarkar drives it on the up towards cover. Duminy (sub) stationed there moves to his left to try and take it but the ball falls just short of his diving effort.
  • 4.2 Just back of a length and outside off, punched hard but it's straight to the man at cover-point.
  • 4.1 Rabada starts off from around the wicket and angles it in to Soumya Sarkar from around off, the left hander pushes it down towards mid off for no run.
  • 3.6 Short of a good length around off, blocked out solidly with a straight blade. 20/2
  • 3.5 FOUR! That's a really good shot from Mushfiqur Rahim! Short and wide outside off, the room is there to work with and he makes full use of it. Cracks it square through point and picks up a boundary.
  • 3.4 Back of a length outside the line of off stump, Rahim keeps it out on the off side from within the crease.
  • 3.4 Wide! Slips it down the leg side, easy wide called by the umpire.
  • 3.3 Cutting back in from around off, on a good length, Rahim stands his ground and defends it right under his nose.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim is the next batsman in.
  • 3.2 OUT! Paterson with his second! This is excellent bowling. Length ball on off and it's shaping back in sharply. Liton Das attempts to work it away on the leg side but misses and is caught on the pads. Loud shout and the umpire after contemplating, raises his finger. Liton walks up to his partner to talk about whether or not to take the review, and then eventually doesn't take it. Would probably have been umpire's call at best. Bangladesh rocked early here, not a good sign for them.
  • 3.1 The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 2.6 Around off on a length, guarded out from the back foot. 15/1
  • 2.5 Brilliant effort from Phehlukwayo! Sarkar flicks it off his pads to mid-wicket. Andile positioned there dives full stretch to his left and stops a certain boundary.
  • 2.4 Back of a length with room on offer outside off, a punch firmly through the covers allows the batsmen to come back for the second.
  • 2.3 FOUR! That's a lovely looking shot! Full on middle and leg, Soumya Sarkar leans ahead and flicks it ever so well through mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 2.2 Short of a good length around off, Sarkar looks to defend but it takes the upper part of the bat and lobs just in front of backward point.
  • 2.1 Full from Rabada, a yorker in essence. Sarkar just about manages to keep it out. Did well too, isn't easy to keep a yorker at 140 clicks out like that.
  • 1.6 Shorter in length on off, Das punches it to the man at covers. 9/1
  • 1.5 Angles it into the batsman, Das flicks it through square leg for a brace.
  • 1.4 FOUR! EDGY! Das won't mind! Paterson lands it on a length around off, Das tries to defend but gets an outside edge through third man for a boundary. First one for Bangladesh.
  • 1.3 Good length outside off, Das lets it be.
  • Liton Das strides out to the middle.
  • 1.2 OUT! Paterson draws first blood! This will boost his confidence! He was expensive in the first two games and now he gets a wicket off his second ball. He bowls it just ahead of a length on off, Kayes tries to go over mid off but does not get the elevation. Behardien positioned inside the circle takes a nice low catch. Paterson has a smile on his face. A poor start for Bangladesh.
  • 1.1 Errs in line and bowls it on the pads. Sarkar works it around the corner for a run.
  • Dane Paterson to bowl from the other end. He too has two slips in place.
  • 0.6 Shorter in length on off, Kayes defends it onto the ground. A solid first over by Rabada. 2/0
  • 0.5 Shorter in length on off, Kayes hops and defends it.
  • 0.4 Back of a length on off, the batsman defends it towards point.
  • 0.3 Good length around off, angling away from the batsman. Kayes shoulders his arms to it.
  • 0.2 Length ball outside off, Sarkar guides it down to third man for a run.
  • JP Duminy is on the field for Faf du Plessis. Not sure who's leading South Africa on the park. It seems, not sure, AB de Villiers is in charge.
  • 0.1 Bangladesh are away! A loosener to start with! Errs in line and drifts on the pads. Kayes flicks it down to fine leg for a run.
  • We are all set to get underway for the chase. Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes will open the batting for Bangladesh. Kagiso Rabada will bowl with the first new ball. He has two slips in place. Here we go...
