Bangladesh has beaten South Africa in the second ODI match by 7 wickets with 134
balls remaining at hand. It was their second ODI match victory against the
Proteas. With this victory, the host country did not only level the series 1-1
but also secured their place in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. Their victory
has put both West Indies and Pakistan under pressure. Now, either of the teams will fight
against each other for the eighth position. One of them will surely miss the
opportunity to play in this tournament.
South Africa were bowled out for 162 which was their lowest
team total against Bangladesh. Their lowest batting first came in November 2009
when they were bowled out for 119 by England. South African batsmen found it difficult to play
both seam and spin on a slow surface. On the other hand, Bangladeshi batsmen
looked comfortable when came to chase.
Both Bangladesh and South Africa will face each other on a series decider on July
