Bangladesh XI 132/7(19.5 overs)

South Africa takes another beating and now have to win against Zimbabwe tomorrow to leave all three teams on equal points.

Looking at the scorecard one sees 20 extras and that just shows a team lacking in discipline.

To Bangladesh a great win and one that can not be faulted. They fielded well, bowled well reading the conditions perfectly and batted well enough. One however has to question the tactics or shot selection from Ashraful when the game was all but won.

Amla: We were not up to it in the field today. We were about 20 runs short with the bat but felt 130 was defendable. We will see what team we need to put in the field tomorrow.

Rahim : We are delighted with the two wins in a row. We used the conditions well by swapping the bowlers around. We hope the result tomorrow goes in our favour.

MOM: Mahmudullah wins the award - "I just do what I have to do for the team, if I do it well I am happy. While batting we decided not to lose wickets and then play a few shots if needed at the end"

That concludes this coverage, be sure to be with us tomorrow when South Africa have to win to stay in the tournament. Win they play in the final, lose they go home and Bangladesh plays Zimbabwe on Sunday
