Mahedi Hasan played a crucial knock for his side when rest of the batting line-up crumbled in front of the Proteas bowling.

Hasan scored 27 runs of 25 balls and helped his side put 84 on board from a point where even that seemed quite impossible.

Anrich Nortje striked twice in two consecutive balls in the 19th over to finish the Bangladesh’s inning. He dismissed Hasan and Nasun Ahmed.

Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks came to open the innings for South Africa and chase the target.

The openers failed to gave their team a start as Hendricks got out in the first over itself after scoring just 4 runs of 5 balls on Taskin Ahmed’s delivery.
