Abbott to Mustafizur Rahman, OUT, off stump uprooted! South Africa win the series. Abbott has made a strong claim to be a permanent fixture in South Africa's attack. Mustafizur looks to slap it through the covers, too good for him

Mustafizur Rahman b Abbott 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Abbott to Rony Talukdar, OUT, his yorkers are quite something. Tinged in with deadly reverse swing. This one began outside off, then veers in looking for the base off stump. Rony realises the threat too late. Tries to save himself. But this is too good a ball to be denied a wicket

Rony Talukdar b Abbott 21 (34m 22b 0x4 1x6) SR: 95.45

Abbott to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, bang! Saw Mashrafe moving outside leg to scoop, Abbott makes that impossible with a leg-stump yorker that hits its mark

Mashrafe Mortaza b Abbott 17 (12m 8b 0x4 2x6) SR: 212.50

Phangiso to Liton Das, OUT, lovely, well-judged catch from Wiese! Races quite a distance from long-on, has to worry about Leie in his eyeline as well because he was running in from deep midwicket. Makes sure to concentrate only on the ball though and takes it excellently. Another down the track swipe doesn't pay off for Bangladesh

Liton Das c Wiese b Phangiso 10 (11m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Phangiso to Nasir Hossain, OUT, eesh! just when I said he likes pressure. Jumps down the track to lift it in the air. Looks nothing more than a chip, which means that's a poor choice of shot with long-off around. Rossouw again, races in and takes an easy catch.

Nasir Hossain c Rossouw b Phangiso 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Leie to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, wicket off a full toss and Mushy's gone! Leie's having a ball! He was looking to slice it away over short cover, didn't get the elevation he wants. Rossouw does though, good leaping catch. Bangladesh slipping away again

Mushfiqur Rahim c Rossouw b Leie 19 (22m 16b 1x4 1x6) SR: 118.75

Leie to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, slugged away to Miller at deep midwicket! Sabbir was reaching for the ball in front of him and outside off. Goes for a slog sweep. Connects decently, but he's not placed it. The fielder runs forward and dives to complete a pretty good catch

Sabbir Rahman c Miller b Leie 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Phangiso to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, he's knocked Shakib over straight away! The left-hander was targeting the left-armer, races down looking for a six over long-on. Made decent connection, but Rossouw is so cool on the boundary. Leaps up just perfectly to take a very well judged catch. First that late blitz. now this catch. He's making some big-impact contributions

Shakib Al Hasan c Rossouw b Phangiso 8 (18m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Leie to Soumya Sarkar, OUT, does him in! Beautiful flight, pulls the batsman out if his crease. Soumya looks to lash it through the covers, and was already looking a little nervous. The ball goes on with the arm and past the outside edge. De Kock is too good of a keeper to miss out

Soumya Sarkar st †de Kock b Leie 37 (31m 21b 6x4 1x6) SR: 176.19

Parnell to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, that's gone up! The slower, short ball sticks in the pitch just enough. Tamim had committed on the front foot, then to attack the ball. Swings at it, gets a top edge and is caught easily at midwicket.

Tamim Iqbal c Wiese b Parnell 13 (25m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.22
