Tanzim Hassan Saqib and Taskin Ahmed wreaked havoc as they put Reza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock, Tristan Stubbs through early Key batsmen such as Si and captain Aiden Markram were dismissed.

Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller then started the rescue mission, stabilizing the innings with a vital partnership of 79 runs. Klassen’s 46 off 44 balls and Miller’s 29 off 38 balls were crucial in helping South Africa lift their total to 113/6. It’s not a result to brag about, but given the conditions, it promises an interesting chase.

Bangladesh started their pursuit cautiously and reached 29/1 at the end of the Powerplay, losing Tanzid Hasan to Kagiso Rabada early on. South Africa’s bowlers continued to pile on the pressure with Keshav Maharaj dismissing Litton Das on his first delivery. Anrich Nortje subsequently dismissed Najimul Hussain Shanto and Shakib Al Hassan, leaving Bangladesh in a precarious position.

Towhid Hridoy provided a glimmer of hope for Bangladesh with his contribution of 37 off 34 balls. However, the match took another turn when Hridoy was caught LBW by Rabada, leaving Bangladesh needing 20 runs in the last 20 balls and with 5 wickets in hand .

The climax of the final over was bowled by Keshav Maharaj. With Bangladesh needing six runs off the last two balls, Maharaj dismissed Jack Ali and then had Maumudullah caught on the boundary.
