South Africa Women 61 for 3 (Chetty 30*) beat Bangladesh Women 60 (Ismail 4-10, Kapp 2-5) by seven wickets
The South Africa Women bowlers ripped through the Bangladesh Women line-up to hand their side a comfortable seven-wicket win and the three-match ODI series 2-1 in Mirpur. Shabnim Ismail led with four wickets as Bangladesh were dismissed for just 60 but it was the opening pair of Marizanne Kapp and Susan Benade who rocked the hosts immediately.
After Bangladesh chose to bat, Benade had Shukhtara Rahman caught behind in the first over of the game. Kapp bowled the other opener Sharmin Akhter in the next over. Lata Mondal was run out soon after, and Bangladesh were reeling at 5 for 3 in three overs. Kapp and Dane van Niekerk did more damage, leaving Ismail to run through the rest of the batting order to end with 4 for 10 from 5.1 overs. Rumana Ahmed and extras were the highest run-getters for Bangladesh with 16 each.
South Africa lost Shandre Fritz early but Trisha Chetty and Benade added 40 for the second wicket with Chetty remaining unbeaten on 30 as the visitors won in the 21st over.
The first of three Twenty20 internationals will be played in Mirpur on September 11.
