Match Notes

Downhill after the peak


SA's ave opening stand since the last time their openers put on a century stand - a record 247-run partnership between Amla and Rossouw.

The Best


Rabada's bowling figures in this match - the best in ODIs by a South Africa bowler and the best by a debutant ever.

Another debutant, long ago


The last time a SA bowler took a five-for on ODI debut: Allan Donald against India. Rabada is only the second SA bowler to achieve this.

Favourite venue


Runs scored by Shakib Al Hasan in Mirpur; he is the first Bangladesh batsman to score 2000-plus runs at any venue.

Triple failure


No. of times before this match Bangladesh have had 3 ducks form their top-four batsmen. That was against SL in the 2003 World Cup.

What a start!


No. of bowlers who have taken a hat-trick on debut in ODIs before this match - Taijul Islam. Kagiso Rabada becomes only the 2nd bowler to do so.

Blooding him young


Number of ODI debutants younger than Kagiso Rabada for South Africa. He is 20 years and 46 days old today.
