colin Ingram is substituting for Kallis

1.4

Tsotsobe to Imrul Kayes, 1 wide, banged in short of length and it skids past the thigh pad and down the leg side. There was an appeal for a catch and replays show why; it hit the thigh pad

1.4

Tsotsobe to Imrul Kayes, no run, a fiery bouncer from Lonwabo and the batsman ducks and gets a glare from the bowler

1.5

Tsotsobe to Imrul Kayes, no run, gets forward to drive to mid-off

1.6

Tsotsobe to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, Thump! Crowd love it. He moved outside leg stump and waited in position. The ball was full and on the stumps and the bat swung down, met the ball flush on the middle and it went sailing over extra cover. One bounce and over the rope

2.5

Botha to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, slower, on the middle and off line, driven to long-off

2.6

Botha to Imrul Kayes, no run, lands on the leg stump line and Kayes thinks he can work it to the on side. Seemed a natural thing to do but suddenly the ball turns and bounces and he gets a leading edge to the off. No one close on the off and it rolls away to safety

End of over 3 (1 run) Bangladesh 14/0 (271 runs required from 47 overs, RR: 4.66, RRR: 5.76)

3.3

Tsotsobe to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Shout for a catch by the keeper They have gone for the udrs after the ump turned it down. It was the bouncer on the off stump line and Tamim was early in to the pull shot. There was a big noise - the bottom edge i reckon. Lets see what the third ump says; he says that's out. Harper reverses his decision. Tamim is back to the hut.

Cricinfo's stat man Madhu: "Tamim Iqbal may well be Bangladesh's most dangerous batsman but he has a number of failures in ODIs. In 51 of his 95 innings, he has failed to cross 25 and has been dismissed for a duck ten times.

5.1

Tsotsobe to Junaid Siddique, no run, full in length, moving in towards that lbw thing again, Junaid edges it to the on side, he needs to be careful.

5.2

Tsotsobe to Junaid Siddique, 1 run, Supah delivery. this one is a bouncer and it catches Junaid completely by surprise. here he was trying to be careful about not getting lbw and this is a well-directed bouncer. he manages to play a weak pull, top edges it but it lands safely

Tsotsobe to Imrul Kayes, no run, really full delivery and it almost breached the defences of Kayes, who gets an inside edge on the drive to his pad

5.4

Tsotsobe to Imrul Kayes, OUT, Clatter! What a way to go! he didn't offer a shot and heard the death knell. he is stunned. Lonwabo is delirious. It landed full in length outside off and cut back in. Kayes shouldered arms and surrendered his wicket.

Very tentative push from the batsman. He was neither forward nor back. He should have come forward to play that full delivery and then was beaten by the arm ball. He now goes for UDRS.

Mushfiqur Rahim    0* (0b)      J Botha    4-1-11-1

Udit: "I never understood this, time and again Bangladesh collapse and Shakib never comes before 3 down, and most of the times lower. Isn't your best batsman meant to bat as much as possible? It doesn't matter if Bangladesh's top 4 are all opener essentially, they are not the best batsmen they have. Shakib should bat higher and stabilize the ship more often."

8.6

Parnell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short and wide, cut hard but its intercepted at point

End of over 9 (maiden) Bangladesh 21/4 (264 runs required from 41 overs, RR: 2.33, RRR: 6.43)

Ariful Roney: "Ibrahim Abdulazeem surely doesn't follow cricket, at least Bangladesh cricket at all.How can oneforget Tamim's 150 against India, back to back hundreds at Lords & Oldtrafford. If Nafees can score a 11 at old Trafford in his life, i will eat my shoe..TAMIM was disappointing for sure, but that dosent mean that he is worse thanNafees."

Peterson to Naeem Islam, OUT, Castled! The implosion is complete. A sorry end to their campaign . It was the quicker one that skidded on towards the middle, the batsman went for the cut shot but missed. They collapsed against West Indies, came back to pull off a thriller against England but have surrendered very meekly here. That's that. This is their lowest score against South Africa. Who will be the fall guy for this campaign? Jamie Siddons? Shakib's captaincy? The corridors of power are going to be abuzz in the days to come.

Naeem Islam b Peterson 8 (24m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Cricinfo's South African correspondent Firdose Moonda writes in her plays of day: "It was only the 8th over of the Bangladesh chase but at 21 for 4, the dream was crashing fast. Lonwabo Tsotsobe had exposed too many weaknesses and what lay before the fans, a raw batting line-up, was too painful for them to see. Rows of seats became empty and dozens of people were making their way to the exit. The dream was dying and they weren't hanging around to see it splutter and struggle its way to the inevitable end."

Please do wait for the quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Shakib: "We missed a big opportunity in this World Cup. We thought we will qualify for the next round but we haven't played good cricket in this tournament. We haven't finished this tournament in the way we wanted. It can happen in cricket. We need to look back and see what we have done wrong. The crowd supported us today; the wicket wasn't bad, they batted brilliantly." And Shakib says, "Sorry" to the fans when Manjrekar asks him if he has anything to say to the crowd.

Smith: "We gave few guys extra two days to rest it was exciting to see the new guys coming in and doing so well. Lopsy (Lonwabo) has been terrific for us. We just have named the team depending on the opposition we play. It was difficult to leave him out. Robbie (Petersen) has been playing really well for a while now. he is coming on to his own now. The bowling unit is bowling really well. We got to take a step at a time and with a bit of luck we shall get there (world cup)

Man of the match Lopsy (Lonwabo Tsotsobe):: "I have been picking up wickets with the new ball. Its a team game. There are 15 good guys in the team. I have supported whenever some one else has played. I have played in Bangladesh before; I came in with the A side last year. "

That's it from us. Good bye and good luck.
