South Africa and Bangladesh are set to lock horns in the second game of the three-match ODI series on Sunday, March 20. The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg will host the game.
The visitors, led by Tamim Iqbal, made a tremendous start to their ODI campaign on an impressive note. They won their maiden ODI on South African soil by emerging victorious in the opening game by 38 runs at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.
After being put into bat first, the Tigers scored 314/7. Tamim and Liton Das laid out the platform with a 95-run stand for the opening wicket. Mushfiqur Rahim perished cheaply, but Shakib Al Hasan went on to score 77 runs off 64 balls with seven fours and three sixes.
Yasir Ali Chowdhury also impressed, scoring 50 runs with four fours and two sixes. Afif Hossain Dhrubo and Mehidy Hasan Miraz played handy cameos at the death as well. Marco Jansen and Keshav Maharaj picked up two wickets apiece for the Proteas.
The hosts lost three early wickets in their run-chase, but Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen brought them back into the game. Van der Dussen went on to score 86 before Taskin Ahmed removed him. David Miller threw his bat around for a 57-ball 79 with eight fours and three sixes, but after his dismissal, the writing was on the walls for the Proteas.
Mehidy Hasan picked up four wickets while Taskin Ahmed ended up with three scalps.
