South Africa clean-sweeps Bangladesh in T20 series

DHAKA: South Africa thrashed Bangladesh by 31 runs in the second Twenty20 International to complete a clean sweep of the two-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday to put a full-stop to Bangladesh’s wining streak in home grounds.

In reply to South Africa’s 169/4, Bangladesh were all out for 138 runs in 19.2 overs.

A 95-run opening stand between Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers helped South Africa to post a significant total.

De Kock topscored with 44 runs and de Villiers added 40 as the visitors looked for a 2-0 sweep in the two-match series after winning the Sunday’s opening game by 52 runs.

Nasir finished with 2/26 for Bangladesh.

The two teams will now play a three-match one-day international series, beginning on July 10 at the same ground.
