Scorecard

South Africa A were favourites to win going into the final day of the second unofficial Test against Bangladesh A in Mirpur, and their bowlers duly completed a 185-run victory with a clinical performance. They had only the last six Bangladesh wickets to take and they claimed them while conceding only 100 runs.

The hosts began the day on 125 for 4, needing 286 more for victory, and survival being a more realistic goal. However, Bangladesh A lost Mahbubul Alam immediately, run out for a duck by Thami Tsolekile, and slipped to 128 for 5. Faisal Hossain offered some resistance, scoring 43 in the middle order, but it was futile. Wickets fell at regular intervals, with the bowlers sharing the spoils, and Bangladesh A folded for 225. Paul Harris took 3 for 85 in the second innings to finish with nine wickets in the match.
