What a stunning show by Bangladesh. They put the runs on the board with all the experienced lads getting their A game out and then backed it up with a thorough professional performance with the ball. Mustafizur Rahman was the leading wicket taker while Saifuddin took two wickets.
Mehidy Hasan too bowled brilliantly going at just 4. Second straight loss for South Africa and boy do they have a mountain to climb with India approaching.
Bangladesh win by 21 runs and get their World Cup campaign off to a memorable start. Rahman puts the final nail in the South African coffin.
Bangs this one short, Duminy is in no position to play the pull and ends up inside-edging it back onto his stumps. This has been a thoroughly professional performance from the Bangladeshis and will keep them in really good stead going forward. Duminy gets an under-edge off Saifuddin that runs wide of short third man.
This came on the back of a four down to fine leg against Shakib in the previous over. Saifuddin, you beauty! Full and straight, you miss I hit kind of length and hit Saifuddin has. Gets one on the stumps, van der Dussen's eyes light up as he goes for the almighty heave.
Does not get anywhere close to the ball and the off and middle stump takes an absolute battering. The umpire has adjudged Duminy lbw but the batsman has reviewed the decision. Looked really good on first glance.
Rahman gets one to nip back into the left-hander who playing across the line misses. The only issue was the height, and yes that is what saves him.
The tracker shows the ball would have gone over the stumps. Duminy lives to fight another day.
Rahman should have had him in the Miller in his previous over but gets him now. That was a top delivery on all counts.
Bangladesh well and truly on top now. Mahmudullah has totally misjudged what should have been a relatively easy catch. Instead, it falls just short of him. More grief for the fielder as the crowd behind him gives him an earful.
Could that be the luck the Saffers needed? Miller skips down the track to Shakib in a bid to loft him over mid-off but doesn't get all of it.
Soumya Sarkar leaps but fails to hang on as he mistimes his jump. That ideally should have been taken. They certainly are living slightly dangerously.
Gently flighted by the bowler, the South African captain races down the track only to miss it completely.
He falls for a well-compiled 62 but Bangladesh are on top now. Heck of a performance from Bangladesh. South Africa have been curiously off the pace - and their next game is against India.
They are a better team than this but are in serious trouble already. Can still happen but looks more and more like formality.
Bangladesh are about to beat South Africa. Bowlers have been in the game thanks to lively surfaces. And India are yet to play. This is a great World Cup so far!
Concedes just nine off it despite bowling a wide and a no-ball. The boundaries have totally dried up for the South Africans and they will really need a miracle to get a win from here.
Just when I typed that South Africa were still in it, Phehlukwayo has thrown it away and that too off a full toss. Knee high, could have been dispatched anywhere on the field, Phehlukwayo just manages to mistime it straight to Shakib at extra cover.
South Africa six down now needing 79 in 53 balls. In Overs , he scores at 6. We are into the last nine overs and South Africa need over 10 runs an over. It is not going to be easy but with Phehlukwayo, who can hit a long ball and Duminy in, they still have a chance even though pretty thin.
Goes after Rahman and absolutely wallops him over long on for a massive six and then follows it up with a fierce cut wide of point. The required rate has crept upto 9.
