Mustafizur Rahman to Imran Tahir. Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot Steer, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Ali. A well deserved victory for Bangladesh. From start to finish they were the better team after being asked to bat first and with ball in hand they put in a terrific effort to restrict the runs. It was an innings of starts for South Africa when they really needed somebody to kick on and make a big score. Faf du Plessis looked the most likely to go on before he was bowled by a beautiful spinning delivery.Not the best way to begin the campaign for South Africa as they start with two defeats with India to come next. For Bangladesh though they can take plenty of confidence going forward and look ahead to their next match against New Zealand.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Mehedi Hasan. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. What a way to get your innings started. Hanging back and crunching a lofted cover drive for four.

SIX! Kagiso Rabada to Mahmudullah. Length ball, outside off stump Deep in crease flick, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Superb start to the over. Clipped off the legs using strong wrists and going towards the short boundary.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Mahmudullah. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Meaty blow towards the big boundary at the Oval. The fielders aren't all the way and this has Miller backpedaling frantically trying to catch the ball.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Mahmudullah. Back of a length, middle stump backing away pulling, bottom edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Tickled around the corner as Morris loses his radar. Expensive start to the over.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Mosaddek Hossain. Length ball, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. What a shot. Getting deep in the crease expecting a short ball but Morris goes full and wide. Mosaddek is still able to thrash the hands through the ball and pierce the offside.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Mahmudullah. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump Deep in crease Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past deep backward square leg for 4 runs, dropped catch by Rabada. Chance put down in the deep. It went high and swirled in the wind and Rabada mis-judged it, sprinting in before realising the ball was over his head.

Edged found from around the wicket and with two slips in you would think this would be snapped up. Doesn't happen though as Faf starts to move before pulling out which gives first slip no chance. Opportunity missed.

FOUR! Mashrafe Mortaza to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump moves in front Scoop, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Played with such ease and aided by the lack of pace from Mortaza. Faf had a good IPL and now he is bringing that form to the World Cup.
