Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

South Africa A's bowlers set up a comfortable six-wicket win with over six overs to spare at Senwes Park on Wednesday, to take an unassailable 2-1 lead against Bangladesh A.

Winning the toss and bowling first, the hosts blitzed the visitors' top order to reduce them to 88 for 6. Ethy Mbhalati and Kyle Abbott picked up two wickets each, while the rest of the attack maintained the pressure. Yet, Nadif Chowdhury and Nasir Hossain pulled their team out of the muck, with a 103-run stand as Bangladesh A finished with 218.

Loots Bosman and Jacques Rudolph began the chase well, adding 44 in quick time before the hosts lost three quick wickets. Dean Elgar and Imran Khan calmed the nerves though, with a 78-run stand, before Vaughn van Jaarsveld upped the scoring-rate to take his side home in the 44th over. Imran finished with an unbeaten 58 off 84 balls with five fours.
