    12.1 Rubel razes the off stump. It goes for a toss. He is mobbed by his team-mates. The umpires check for a possible no-ball. Rubel is okay and Amla has to go. Back of a length, nips in a touch on off, hurries onto Amla. He does not connect with the across-the-line flick. Rubel nails the top of off 45/2
    4.1 Prancing delivery. Mustafizur strikes and claps his hands in joy. This one explodes from a shortish length and outside off, leaving QdK squared up. Popped to backward point off the shoulder of the bat. Sabbir moves to his right and swallows it 16/1
    28.3 Faf du Plessis steps out and holes out. Bangladesh have their man. Tossed up on middle, he skips down the track and mis-hits the lofted strike to the right of long-on. Sarkar runs across and takes it. Faf aimed to bisect deep midwicket and long-on. No dice. Big, big wicket for the hosts. South Africa five down... 93/5
    18.1 Nasir gets RR first ball. He has missed a straight ball. Hurries on with the arm on off, RR camps back in the crease and wants to slap it through the covers after stepping away a touch but does not connect. The off stump is rattled and the crowd roars with Nasir. 4 off 24 balls; end of a jittery little knock. It was going nowhere 59/3
    23.5 Mashrafe claims the catch. Miller walks off. South Africa slide further. Miller steps out, Mahmudullah is aware of it as he fires it flat on the pads. He does not meet the pitch of the ball, neither does he time the attempted flick. Chipped tamely to short midwicket, where Mashrafe bends low, dives forward and snaffles a sharp catch 74/4
    31.5 Mustafizur comes back and takes out Duminy with another of those offcutters. On a length and outside off at 127.3ks, Duminy is early into his stroke as he drives in the air and chips it to short cover. Mustafizur is pleased as punch. Sabbir goes to his left and takes it 100/6
    45.6 Another slower ball, this one at 111ks, Behardien rocks back and hits a pull/rather drags it to deep midwicket. Nasir Hossain pouches it safely at the edge of the boundary 162/10
    35.3 The forefinger goes up. Morris has been pinned lbw. Bangladesh are all over South Africa. This was full and slides in with the angle to ping him below the knee-roll on the front pad as he is late onto the flick. It would have hit the leg stump. Rubel roars and pumps his fist 116/7
    40.6 bowled'em. The offcutter does the damage again as the middle stump is tilted back. This one swerves in at 120.7ks, rips through the bat-pad gap and timberrrr! Rabada was perhaps early into the flick. Replays show that it clipped the back pad and hit top of middle 138/8
    44.5 Abott perishes... Slides on at 90ks and traps him bang in front of middle. Abott camped back, missing the attempted defensive push. Nine down 160/9

Match Notes

  • Mashrafe lauds Bangladesh's mentally strong outlook

    Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh's ODI captain, was pleased with the manner in which his team bounced back with a seven-wicket win over South Africa in the second ODI in Mirpur, levelling the three-match series with one game still to be played

  • Rossouw found guilty for Tamim shoulder barge

    The ICC has found Rilee Rossouw guilty of breaching Article 2.2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct, after he was involved in a shoulder-barging incident with Tamim Iqbal during the second ODI in Mirpur

  • 'I wanted to take them on' - Soumya

    After scoring an unbeaten 88 which secured Bangladesh's seven-wicket win against South Africa, Soumya Sarkar revealed that he kept trying to pull the short balls since he was confident he had the mindset to take on the visitors' attack

  • Rubel's comeback promises more

    He took two wickets, he didn't go for too many runs. It wasn't the most eye-catching performance. But Rubel Hossain has shown the capacity to develop as an all-round bowling option
