Scorecard summary

South Africa164/2(31.1 overs)

Time for Presentation:

Mashrafe: We could have scored at least 200, maybe 220 then would have been a different game, we kept losing wickets. If someone from opposition gets a hat-trick you go on the back foot. Wicket was pretty good, we can't give that excuse and we need to come back strongly in the next match. Anyone would bat first here, we can't make an excuse after batting and it was a good wicket to bat on. We just didn't bat well.

Amla: Kagiso was outstanding and to restrict them to 160 was wonderful. We've got wonderful players, we are very fortunate. Obviously we miss AB but we have players to rally around. Maybe we gave an extra few runs in the end but we batted pretty well.

Man of the Match Rabada: It's great to just do well for your team and put them in a good position and we won comfortably in the end. I didn't know what to bowl when I was on hat-trick - maybe bouncer, then yorker but I missed it by a mile. It was a bit of a fluke, but I'll take it. It's important to keep the game simple, keep the batsmen guessing and hit good line and length and guess what the batsmen are trying to do. We have one of the best teams in the world and you'd be stupid to not be part of this team, we have a wonderful environment.

All matches done then, SA beat Bangladesh, India beat Zimbabwe, Djokovic beats Gasquet and Federer just beat Murray. Time to switch off then, thanks for joining us and catch us for the second ODI too. Until then, goodbye and good luck!

Sooryanarayanan: "Game, set and match, Roger Federer."

11.15pm A clinical performance from SA here without AB and many of their leading bowlers. But who needs them when you have Kagiso Rabada - debutant with a hat-trick and 6 for 16. Once that skittled Bangladesh out for 16-, SA's batsmen had to make sure they didn't give it away. The pitch was slow, but du Plessis knows how to bat here and was well supported by Rossouw after QDK laid the platform early on. SA go one up with eight-wicket win.

sami: "Can we talk about Football too?" Why not?

Shzad: "It will be first wicket-less ODI for Mustafizur Rahman, Dont know how he will be feeling right now!"
