SA vs BAN Highlights T20 World Cup 2021: Temba Bavuma played a captain's knocks as South Africa knocked off the 85-run target 13.3 overs to beat Bangladesh by 6 wickets. Mahedi Hasan cleaned up Quinton de Kock after Taskin Ahmed got rid of Reeza Hendricks. Taskin struck again to remove Markram and send tremors down the South African camp. Anrich Nortje finished things off with a double strike as South Africa bowled Bangladesh out for 84. Tabraiz Shamsi got two wickets in the middle to send Bangladesh into a deeper hope. Anrich Nortje and Dwaine Pretorius came to the party after Kagiso Rabada dismissed Naim Sheikh, and Soumya Sarkar in successive balls and then removed Mushfiqur Rahim for a duck. South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and had no hesitation in opting to bowl first. South Africa are fielding an unchanged side while Bangladesh have made two changes. Shakib Al Hasan is injured and Mustafizur Rahman is resting.

  • Nov 02, 2021 06:28 PM IST

    Dussen departs

    Nasum to Dussen: OUT! He wanted to finish it off in this over and in the process ended up skying one. A brilliant catch running backwards by Shoriful, tells you that there is no shortage of effort from Bangladesh's side. SA, however, need only 5 runs to win this mattch handsomely.

  • Nov 02, 2021 06:26 PM IST

    All too easy for SA now

    Nasum to Bavuma: FOUR! Streaky! Short and outside off, Temba Bavuma hangs back and looks to cut. The ball goes off the outside edge towards third man for a boundary.

  • Nov 02, 2021 06:22 PM IST

    Bavuma hits another four

    Sarkar to Bavuma: FOUR! Mid on was up in the circle and Bavuma was fully aware of that. He used Sarkar's length delivery to just lift it over the in-field and get an easy boundary. South Africa marching along now. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 06:06 PM IST

    Bavuma on the charge

    Nasum to Bavuma: SIX! What a shot from Bavuma. He may be of short stature but that doesn't mean he lacks power. Nasum dragged it short and Bavuma was very quick to transfer his weight to the backfoot and pull it away deep into stands. First six of the South African innings and there's their fifty up. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 06:02 PM IST

    Bavuma breaks the shackles

    Taskin to Bavuma: FOUR! Brilliant from the South African captain. Slightly overpitched from Taskin, perhaps looking for that extra swing but this time Bavuma was up to the task. He drove it on the up but after he had covered the swing with a good stride. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:54 PM IST

    Taskin removes Markram

    Taskin to Markram: OUT! Taskin Ahmed gets his second. Aiden Markram is out for a duck. It was a fast delivery which swung away and Markram, trying to drive on the up, gets an outside edge. Bangladesh are not making it easy for South Africa. They are South Africa 33/3, chasing 85 to win.

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:49 PM IST

    Mahedi cleans up de Kock

    Mahedi to de Kock: OUT! Mahedi Hasan has the last laugh. He cleans up de Kock after being hit for two fours.  South Africa 28/2, chasing 85 to win

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:45 PM IST

    De Kock on the attack

    Back-to-back boundaries for de Kock. He has decided to take the attack to Bangladesh off-spinner Mahedi Hassan and it has worked so far. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:41 PM IST

    Dussen joins the party

    Shoriful to Dussen: FOUR! Silky touch there from Dussen. Shoriful just strays down the pads and enough for Dussen to just use his wonderful wrists to work it pas the inner field and into the boundary. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:39 PM IST

    De kock gets a boundary

    Taskin to de Kock: FOUR! Pulled away with disdain. You can't bowl there to de Kock. Taskin tried to mix it up with a bouncer but he didn't get the line right and de Kock smacked it past fine leg to collect his maiden four. This should take some of the pressure off. SA 16/1 after 3 overs. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:35 PM IST

    Shoriful starts well

    That's a very good over to by left-arm seamer Shoriful Islam to back up Taskin's start. Only 4 runs from it. Signs that Bangladesh are not gonna go down that easily. South Africa will have to work hard for their 85 runs.  

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:28 PM IST

    Taskin strikes

    Taskin to Hendricks: OUT! Taskin Ahmed strikes in his first over to Bangladesh a glimmer of hope. South Africa 6/1, chasing 85 to win. That came back a long way after pitching outside off and Hendricks missed it altogether. No hesitation in the umpire's mind and de Kock too tells Hendricks that it's not worth a review. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:25 PM IST

    Hendricks off the mark with a four

    Taskin to Hendricks: FOUR! Overpitched from Taskin and Hendricks just pushes it through the covers. It wasn't even a push perhaps. Just an extended defensive shot and it races away to the fence. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:22 PM IST

    SA chase begins

    Taskin Ahmed has the new ball for Bangladesh. He needs to strike early and perhaps more than once to give Bangladesh a chance. Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks are opening the batting for South Africa. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:11 PM IST

    Bangladesh bowled out

    Nortje finishes it off with a double strike. What an irony. He got Mahedi in and then Nasum Ahmed was bit wicket, the fifth duck in this innings and the third golden duck. Bangladesh have been bowled out for 84 in 18.2 overs. Nortje finishes with figures of 3/8. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:05 PM IST

    First six of the match

    Shamsi to Mahedi: SIX! WOW where did that come from? Mahedi comes down the track, makes some room and smashes it over covers for a six. More of that please but is it too little too late? Bangladesh 83/8 after 173 overs. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 05:04 PM IST

    8th wicket for South Africa

    RUN OUT! South Africa can do no wrong today. Temba Bavuma gets the direct hit to send back Taskin. Bangladesh 77/8 after 17.2 overs

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:54 PM IST

    Shamsi picks up another wicket

    Shamsi to Shamim: OUT! Shamim the man has to take the long walk back. Shamsi has his second of the day. Tosses it up, outside off. Shamim Hossain charges down the track and heaves it to long on. Gets height but not the distance on it. Keshav Maharaj settles himself under it and pouches the catch easily. He doesn't drop those. Another sensless dismissal and Bangladesh dig themselves into a bigger hole.

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:52 PM IST

    Rabada finishes his spell

    Two no balls in the over from Kagiso but Bangladesh fail to take advantage of any of it. End of a brilliant spell from the right-arm seamer. He finishes with figures of 20 for 3. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:40 PM IST

    Fifty up for Bangladesh

    Maharaj to Mahedi: FOUR! That almost snuck through but Mahedi got some bat on it at the last moment and to good effect. It had enough to reach the third-man boundary, only the third of Bangladesh's innings, speaks volumes about their struggles in this innings. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:34 PM IST

    Shamsi strikes in first over

    OUT! Tabraiz Shamsi strikes in his first over. Litton Das' fighting innings comes to an end. Bangladesh lose a review as well! Nicely tossed up, on middle, turning in sharply. Liton Das looks to flick but he misses and gets hit on his front pad. Tabraiz Shamsi puts in an appeal and the umpire raises his finger in no time. Das opts for a review but the Ball Tracker indicates three reds and it is OUT! Das takes his walk back to the pavilion. Bangladesh 45/6 after 11.3 overs.

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:32 PM IST

    Maharaj continues the good work

    Among all the bouncer barrage, left-arm spinner Maharaj has quietly and effectively gone about his business. He bowls another good over that costs only 3. Maharaj has given away only 15 runs in his 3 overs.  

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:27 PM IST

    No respite for Bangladesh

    South Africa have gone hard at Bangladesh with their three-pronged pace attack. And so far, there has been no answer to the barrage of short-pitched stuff dished out at them by Rabada, Norjte and Pretorius. Bangladesh 40/5 at the halfway mark. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:18 PM IST

    Pretorius now joins the party

    Pretorius to Afif: OUT! TIMBER! Two in two for South Africa and really not sure what Afif tried to play there! It is his first ball. He just steps down the track, it is bowled full and on middle, Afif swings across the line but misses and the stumps are shattered. All falling apart for Bangladesh.

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:14 PM IST

    Nortje gets Mahmudullah

    Nortje to Mahmudullah: OUT! Another one bites the dust, it's the Bangladesh captain this time. Once again the extra bounce brings about the downfall of a Bangladeshi batter. It hit the thumb of Mahmudullah and lobbed up in the air for a simple catch to the point fielder. Norjte now joins the party. Bangladesh 34/4

  • Nov 02, 2021 04:09 PM IST

    Pretorius starts well

    A good over from Dwaine Pretorius. Only 3 off it. The pressure is firmly on Bangladesh. They not only need a partnership here but also need to up their scoring rate. They are 3⅓ after 7 overs. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 03:58 PM IST

    Rabada running through Bangladesh

    Rabada to Rahim: OUT! Rabada is running through Bangladesh. Mushfiqur Rahim now departs for a duck. It was the extra bounce that did the track. Rabada bent his back, got it really jump awkwardly at Rahim, who fend it towards the slips and Hendricks did a fine job to hold on to the catch despite a juggle or two. Bangladesh 24/3 after 5.2 overs

  • Nov 02, 2021 03:50 PM IST

    Rabada's double strike

    Rabada to Sarkar: OUT! Two-in-two for Rabada, South Africa on top. Soumya Sarkar goes for a golden duck. It was a picture-perfect yorker from Rabada, nothing much that Sarkar could have done with that one. The umpire shook his head, thought it was bat first but South Africa had no doubts that it had hit the front pad and they were right. Bangladesh 22/2

  • Nov 02, 2021 03:48 PM IST

    Rabada gets Naim

    Rabada to Naim: OUT! Naim hits it straight to mid-wicket. He wanted to go over the in-field, made room for himself but did not get the elevation nor the connection. Bangladesh 22/1 after 3.4 overs. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 03:42 PM IST

    Naim gets a lucky four

    Maharaj to Naim: FOUR! Oh no no. Aiden Markram is livid with himself and so he should be. It was a regulation collection in the deep but he took his eyes off the ball and it slipped in between his fingers and reached the boundary. What a gift to Bangladesh and Naim.  

  • Nov 02, 2021 03:37 PM IST

    What a shot by Litton

    Rabada to Litton: FOUR! So smooth, so easy, so effortless… So so graceful from Litton Das. Just the kind of stroke that gives assurance to the dressing room after your side has been asked to bat first. On length, just a tad outside off from Rabada and Litton just stroked it on the rise for first the first boundary of the match. 

  • Nov 02, 2021 03:33 PM IST

    Spin straight away for SA

    Left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj starts the proceedings for South Africa. Naim and Litton opening for Bangladesh. Here we go!

  • Nov 02, 2021 02:47 PM IST

    A lot rides on captain Mahmudullah

    In the absence of inform Shakib al Hasan, Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah will have added responsibilities. Mahmudullah is the leading run getter for Bangladesh in T20Is, he needs 79 more runs to complete 2000 T20I runs. He has scored 446 runs in 2021 which is the most he has scored in any calendar year. With 150 runs in this tournament, he is leading the batting department for his side, he has got these runs at a strike rate of 132.74.

  • Nov 02, 2021 02:41 PM IST

    SA vs BAN head-to-head

    South Africa have a terrific record in T20Is against Bangladesh. They have never lost against them in the six times they have faced them in the shortest format of the game. Will they make it 7-0 today or will Bangladesh stage a comeback?

  • Nov 02, 2021 02:34 PM IST

    SA injuries

    South Africa too have their injury scares. David Miller, who hit two sixes in the last over against Sri Lanka, has a hamstring niggle while left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi has complained of pain in the groin. Both of their availability in today's match against Bangladesh will be crucial to South Africa's chances

  • Nov 02, 2021 02:18 PM IST

    Shakib Al Hasan ruled out 

    Whatever mathematical chances Bangladesh had of reaching the semis, received a big blow with the injury to Shakib Al Hasan. The world-class all-rounder has been ruled out of Bangladesh's remaining two matches in this World Cup. Coach Russell Domingo hinted that Shamim Hossain is likely to replace Shakib against South Africa today.
