South Africa tour of Bangladesh, 2nd ODI: Bangladesh v South Africa at Dhaka, Mar 12, 2008
South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 11 balls remaining)
12 March 2008 (50-over match)

We're almost ready for the start. Tamim has the strike. It's a hot day at the SBNS Stadium - 36 degrees. Shahriar Nafees returns to the opening position. Nel has the ball. Two slips in place

Toss: The news from the middle is that Mohammad Ashraful has won his second consecutive toss and Bangladesh will bat first.

Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of the second one-dayer between Bangladesh and South Africa in Mirpur. This is Kanishkaa Balachandran from the commentary cubicle. Giving me company are Raju (on scoring) and Jamie Alter, who'll bring you the bulletin.

Teams: Bangladesh have omitted the out-of-sorts Junaid Siddique and in his place is Nazimuddin. If you remember, Nazimuddin was part of the ICC World Twenty20 squad last year. He's been highly regarded back home as a player to watch out for, so here's wishing him all the best in his ODI debut. The other change - Mortaza replaces 'Sharapova' Shahadat Hossain. South Africa are unchanged.

South Africa: 1 Graeme Smith (capt), 2 Herschelle Gibbs, 3 Hashim Amla, 4 JP Duminy, 5 AB de Villiers (wk), 6 Alviro Peterson, 7 Albie Morkel, 8 Johan Botha, 9 Paul Harris, 10 Andre Nel, 11 Charl Langeveldt

That was a funny old innings by Bangladesh. After winning the toss, four wickets fell for almost nothing, before a record 119-run stand for the fifth wicket (for Bangladesh) between the Hasans - Shakib and Raqibul - brought the crowd alive. Both displayed uncharacteristic patience and forced captain Graeme Smith to think a little. Then Raqibul fell tamely after a impressive fifty and another three wickets fell in a flash. Ultimately, Bangladesh had to settle for 173, five less than their tally at Chittagong. Nel and Langeveldt shared seven wickets to give their side a good shot at sealing the series. And why was Nel left out for India??

That's a topic for another forum. We'll be back at 13.45 local time (7.45 GMT) for the chase. Cheers for now.
