Bangladesh 141 all out, SA win by 83 runs


PV Sports Desk : Bangladesh are all out for 141 with nine balls to spare. South Africa win the maych by 83 runs to clinch the series 2-0. Soumya Sarkar top-scored with a 27-ball 44. Rest of the batting lineup made little impact on the match.
Duminy and Phangiso picked up two wickets each for the Proteas.
Earlier a fanatstic batting display from David Miller on his way to a 35-ball ton saw South Africa put up 224 runs on the board. Shakib Al Hasan was the pick of the Tigers bowlers with two wickets for just 22 runs.
His ton off 35 balls (101 not-out) helped his side to post a commanding 224 runs in the second and final T20 against the Tigers at Potchefstroom.
Miller hit nine sixes including five consecutive in an over of Saifuddin, and seven fours in his innings.
“It’s a really special feeling,” Miller told SuperSport. “I tried to watch the ball and back myself. I was scratchy to be honest in the beginning and towards the back end it turned out to be sweet.”
This match is the last one after Bangladesh lost all earlier matches in the ‘long series’ of T20, one-day international and Test matches in South Africa.
South Africa scored 90 runs in the last five overs.
The Tigers also have more reasons to regret as Miller was dropped on zero off the bowling of Rubel Hossain.
Hashim Amla is the only other South African batsman who made useful contribution with 85 runs leading the innings towards a big one.
Shakib Al Hasan and Saifuddin took wickets each for Bangladesh.
