We have the presentation coming up...

Shakib: We started very well and bowled in very good areas, we restricted them very well in the first 10 overs. But credit goes to Miller because he had all the answer. Today was the reflection of the series, to be honest. We need to work hard and learn. South Africa have a few players who can change the game. We got a few crucial wickets early on, like AB cheaply, we had our chances in the first few overs when Miller batted. There was something for the spinners, I was expecting more from Miraz today but it didn't work out.

Miller is the Man of the Match & Series: It was pretty special, you don't think when you wake up in the morning that something like this is going to happen. I was scratchy to be honest when I started and when I hit one or two, I decided to keep going because it doesn't come too often. The middle order didn't get much of a bat in the one-dayers so it was a good chance today. When I got to the fourth six I thought about it (six sixes in an over), and looking back I think I could have got six out of six. I told Saifuddin after my innings maybe he got unlucky, he tried well and we could have a drink after the match.

Duminy: It's nice to contribute with personal performance as well. Can't go too wrong when someone gets 100 off 35 balls. It was nice to get a chance to bowl especially in the first six overs against two left-handers. Very happy with my performance, I've been working on my bowling in the background with Claude. We'll take a lot out of this series, execution of our death bowling has been good. We have 6-7 weeks off now and we have domestic cricket coming up so that's exciting.

That's all we have from the series sweeps that South Africa have scripted. We will being more coverage on the two teams tomorrow from Mohammad Isam and Firdose Moonda. Until then, it's goodbye and good luck. Ciao!

5.40pm In case the margin of the first T20 did not seem big enough after the Test and ODI defeats, Bangladesh have lost this T20 by 83 runs. They showed the right intent in the chase but nailing down 225 against any South African attack won't be easy. JP Duminy got the early and important wickets and the visitors never recovered after that. Soumya kept going at one end for his 44 with a few heaves and pulls and the match was virtually over when he was dismissed in the ninth over.

And not to forget the dominating batting from Amla and Miller earlier that set up the win. Amla's flicks and drives square of the wicket were getting all the praise before Miller hammered five sixes in the penultimate over to pull a century out of nowhere. And it turned out to be the fastest in T20I history! It shows the kind of domination the hosts have had over Bangladesh this tour - innings win, over 100 runs, 200 runs, 300 runs and today no partnership went over 35.

AHNaf: "Bangladesh should not be disappointed we have BPL coming up that should be a place to find new talent."

Phehlukwayo to Taskin Ahmed, 1 no ball, OUT, that's a nasty high full toss from Phehlukwayo, it hits Taskin on the arm off the edge as he tries to pull.
