Gibbs gets to his fifty with the final run, and that ends a daythat has seen South Africa dominate the cricket through and through Once the win was set up by the bowling, mostly by Makhaya Ntini's

four wickets, South Africa were never in danger of slipping up in chasing 109 And as expected, South Africa's openers knocked off the runs with minimum fuss, in just 12 overs of admittedly erratic bowling from Bangladesh The win, while expected, will give South Africa some comfort after their defeat against New Zealand, and confidence as they continue their campaign to make the Super Six
