6:12pm Thanks for joining us today. We will see you for the next ODI.

AB de Villiers: I enjoyed it a lot. It's a great privilege and honour to play for the country and this was the cherry on top after the hard work I've done in the last few months. Hash gave me plenty of confidence and was the perfect person for me to be with. I had one of my best nets in Kimberly and felt really good. The 200 crossed my mind but I never think about things like that, it was only about how many balls I face at the end and get as much as possible for the team.

AB de Villiers is the Man of the MAtch

Faf du Plessis: Very good performance again. AB special today. I thought we were very good with the ball on a very good wicket. As I said on the toss, it might be a bit slow surface. Our openers assessed it well and that's what set us up. The switch there in the middle was very good. Perhaps we could have got 5-10 runs more. (laughing about his dismissal) Hash said there was no turn so I took that on and got the only one that spun all day. We are definitely going to look at giving guys opportunities in the next game - not only guys in the squad but outside as well.

Mashrafe Mortaza: AB came and took the game away from us. This could have been 310-320. We started well but Tahir's wickets put us under a lot of pressure. We all know AB is a destroyer and today he played one of his best innings. When he's in that sort of form, you have to be 100% perfect. He'll punish you otherwise and that's what happened. The luck didn't go our way too a couple of times. Our biggest problem is individuals are standing up but we're not performing collectively.

5:46pm Bangladesh started well in their chase. But 354 is too much for most teams. And it proved that way for them. The foundations was set, but you could see why the acceleration attempts were delayed. Give an opening to a team like South Africa, and you will be made to pay. That's what happened here. 162 for 2 and 249 all out. Good spells from Phehlukwayo and Pretorius, who're fighting it out for the allrouner's spot. Tahir started poorly but returned to begin the procession. A comfortably win for South Africa, set up by that devil - 176 off 104 for AB de Villiers.

Rumplestiltskin: "I'm impressed by Lucky and Pretorius so far in their ODI careers. Pretorius is tight and chips in with wickets, while Lucky seems to have a bit more nip and x-factor about his bowling. Does more with the ball. Both can also bat, with Pretorius being better in that department. Two solid all round players being groomed. "
