South African bowlers came to the party once again as they mounted a successful defence of 113 against Bangladesh at the Nassau International Stadium in New York. Towhid Hridoy and Mahmudullah gave it all, but the Proteas proved to be too good with the ball and on the field, winning by 4 runs.

Bangladesh restricted a much-vaunted South African batting unit to 113-6 in 20 overs as Tanzim Hasan Sakib emerged as the pick of the bowlers with outstanding figures of 4-0-18-3. The partnership of 79 between Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller did the heavylifting and they became amongst the three batters to reach double figures on a tough New York surface.

Another big game coming up in the T20 World Cup 2024 as South Africa and Bangladesh face off at the Nassau County Stadium in New York for their Group D clash. The Proteas are riding high on the back of two successive wins and top the table with 4 points. They will be looking to complete a hat-trick tonight against the Bangla tigers, who won their opening match against Sri Lanka earlier this month.

Notably, South Africa have never lost to Bangladesh in T20 international cricket and would be looking to keep their record intact tonight.
