Poor batting show continues as Bangladesh falter with a total of 84 on the board.

After being put into bat first, Bangladesh ended their innings by being bowled out with 8 balls to spare.

Openers Liton Das and Naim Sheikh put together an opening stand of 22 runs as Bangladesh struggled to the pace of the South African seamers scoring 28 runs in the powerplay with the loss of 3 wickets. 

After Naim Sheikh perished to the bowling off Kagiso Rabada on the fourth, over scoring 9 runs from 11 balls, Soumya Sarkar was slotted to bat at number 3 in the absence of Shakib Al Hasan.

However, Sarkar got out straightaway by a yorker from Rabada. Rabada then continued with his fiery bowling, dismissing Mushfiqur Rahim on his immediate next over for a duck as well. 

As Bangladesh were struggling at 24/3, skipper Mahmudullah could only last 8 balls after getting out to a fast bouncer from Anrich Nortje. Afif Hossain achieved a golden duck to his name. 

Losing 5 wickets for just 34 runs, it was only a matter of time for South Africa to bundle the tail-enders. 

Liton Das, who tried to hold the innings together, failed to tackle the spin from Tabraiz Shamsi. He returned to the pavilion scoring 24 runs off 36 balls in the 12th over. 

Mahedi Hasan tried to put on some resistance at the lower order scoring 27 from 25 balls, who also hit the lone six of the innings.
