David Miller and JP Duminy were the only stand-out batsmen for the African side scoring 44 and 51 respectively.

Soumya Sarkar who was adjudged the Man of the Match was the top-scorer for Bangladesh with 75-ball, 90 run innings which saw 13 boundaries and a six. He was also awarded the Man of the Series award for his remarkable batting throughout the series.

Winning captian Mashrafe Mortaza had this to say, “After losing the first match, it was difficult to come back in the second. The boys played brilliantly in the third match. The way Soumya was batting was nice to see. Mustafiz has become a very good fast bowler. Tamim showed his character as well. It was brilliant. The boys have got some confidence and also I would thank South Africa. Thanks to the crowd, keep supporting us.”

South Africa’s Hashim Amla spoke after the match and here’s what he had to say –

“Very disappointing, indeed. We misjudged the conditions but credit to Bangladesh. We were rusty and we haven’t played good cricket. We have got a good idea of what the wickets would be. Test cricket is a different ball game. We will regroup and come back in the Tests. The Test guys have flown in.”
