South Africa have sealed the series 2-0 and are just one victory away from gaining the top rank among one-day teams.

Comfortable win in the end. The pair managed to negate the advantage held by the spinners after three wickets fell. Both were patient enough to gauge the turn and force the singles, though the boundaries were hard to come by. Mohammad Ashraful made the mistake by not attacking enough and as a result, the batsmen were easily able to push the singles to long-off and long-on in particular.

Bangladesh appeared to let it all slip away. The century stand between Raqibul and Shakib is their biggest positive from this match. Perhaps chasing won't be a bad idea if Ashraful wins the toss again in Mirpur on Friday.

That's it from us here. Thanks for stopping by. This is Kanishkaa signing off. Cheers!
