South Africa Vs Bangladesh Highlights, ICC T20 World Cup: SA Hold Their Nerve To Win New York Thriller

It was drama all over as the cat and mouse game went on for 40 overs. The pendulum kept swinging both ways but eventually swung towards Markram's men. After posting only 113 on the board on an very unpredictable surface, South Africa won the game in the last ball of the 20th over, with Keshav Maharaj holding his nerve. The fast bowlers have used the short ball to their advantage as lone spinner Maharaj picked up three wickets and continued adding pressure and misery in the final over. Mahmudullah and Hridoy's efforts went in vain as Bangladesh lost the contest at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium by just four runs.

QDK Takes Guard, Sakib Gets The New Rock

The match No. 21 of the ICC T20 World Cup is underway in New York.

What A Hit!

Quinton de Kock has deposited one over mid-wicket off Tanzid Sakib.

Reeza Goes For Nought

And that's hitting middle and off. Hendricks knows it and does not take the review after a quick chat with Quinton. South Africa are one down in the first over.

South Africa Vs Bangladesh Live Score: 18/1 (2)

Quinton de Kock has come out with some intent. Can he go big for himself and South Africa?

Sakib Sizzles In New York

It is that man again. Sakib has two, and this time off a dangerous looking de Kock. South Africa, two down.

You Miss, I Hit Stuff

Another one bites the dust. What a start for Bangladesh. South Africa are 23 for three in under four overs.

What Are We Witnessing? 

Tanzim Sakib is running in, breathing fire, bowling rockets and has South Africa on the backfoot. Four down now for not many.

South Africa Vs Bangladesh Live Score: 37/4 (8)

David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen look to calm the nerves after a chaotic 30 odd minutes in New York.

Halfway Mark

South Africa are 57 for four after ten overs. Can they hit the 130 mark?

I'll Be There Four You Ft. Bangladesh

Bangladesh have taken four wickets in the powerplay, four times in T20 World Cups.
17/4 vs PNG Al Amerat 2021
32/4 vs Net Hobart 2022
36/4 vs Zim Brisbane 2022
25/4 vs SA New York 2024 *

Fifty Partnership!

And that's a very important fifty partnership for Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller and South Africa. The platform for launch is set. But can they?

South Africa Vs Bangladesh Live Score: 90/4 (16)

With only four overs left to play, South Africa have scored 90 for the loss of four.

100 Up For South Africa!

On the back of a fantastic rebuild, South Africa have reached 100. 30 in the last three and give their bowlers something to work with?

Klaasen Fails To Put Bat On Ball

Heinrich Klaasen looks disappointed after getting dismissed for 46, failing to finish the innings. Clever stuff from Taskin Ahmed. Slower and on a length does the trick.

Rishad Weaves Magic

Brave captaincy from Shanto and it pays off. A wrist spinner against David Miller and the South African falls for the trap. Bangladesh all over.

South Africa Reach 113!

An excellent bowling display from Bangladesh saw South Africa score 113 just in their 20 overs.

Out Come The Bangla Openers

Najmul Hossian Shanto and Tanzid Hasan out there in the middle for Bangladesh's chase 114-run chase.

Back-To-Back Boundaries For Tanzid

Kagiso Rabada under the pump in his first over

Rabada Strikes Back!

Rabada has the last laugh after Tanzid nicks one to de Kock. One down, Bangladesh.

South Africa Vs Bangladesh Live Score: 19/1 (4)

Bangladesh have looked to show intent, but the South African pacers have been super disciplined.

Maharaj Gets Litton!

Keshav Maharaj gets South Africa an important breakthrough.

One More Bites The Dust

Bangladesh lose Shakib cheaply as the Tigers are three down for 37.

Another Short Ball, Another Wicket

The short ball continues to do the damage as Nortje picks one more, this time the skipper Shanto for 14.

SA Are Favourites Now

The win predictor has 54% for South Africa. New York surface and chasing totals, not been a happy love story.

Nortje Bowling Absolute Wheels

Anrich Nortje inching towards the 155-click mark.. serious heat.

Game Of Cat And Mouse

Maharaj giving the ball some air making Hridoy hit across with the longer boundary. The youngster goes after it and collects six.

Last Five Overs!

The equation is gettable, but can Bangladesh hold their nerve?

Clipping Leg? Missing? 

Mahmudullah has been given out. Nerves in the Bangladesh camp. He's reviewed the decision. We wait.

Mahmudullah Survives

Relief for Mahmudullah, relief for Bangladesh.

Is There Yet Another Twist?

Bangladesh lose Towhid Hridoy at a very crucial time in the game. 20 from 17 now.

Pressure, Pressure?

18 from 12. Baartman and Maharaj to bowl the last two?

Coming Down To The Wire

Bangladesh need 11 from the last over. No boundary for 14 balls. Who's game is it going to be?

Maharaj Gets Ali

That was in the slot but Ali has hit it straight to long on. 7 from 3, six for a Super Over.

Calm Under Pressure Is Markram

Inches away from the boundary as Markram holds Mahmudullah's hit. Talk about margins in the game. Comes down to the last ball. Drama, drama all over. Unbelievable.

South Africa Win To Stay Unbeaten!

Keshav Maharaj somehow holds his nerve to get the job done for South Africa in a nail-biter of a contest in New York. Agony one one side, ecstasy on the other. Scenes in New York.

Heinrich Klaasen | POTM

"That was not nice on the heart but good that we got over the line. The wicket is not too great for strokeplay. We got some good information from the last game and applied it today, we got a decent score. Luckily we’ve got experience in the change room, we almost had a One-Day mindset. Three pressure games now but I think we’re through so that’s good."

Najmul Hossain Shanto | Bangladesh Skipper

"We were bit nervous but we were confident we could get over the line but unfortunately it did not happen. (Tanzim Hasan) He worked really hard last couple of days, we wanted wickets with the new ball and he showed character today. This is the match we should have won, last couple of overs they bowled really well. It can happen in cricket. (Rishad) He is very good, the way we bowled last couple of series, he practiced very hard. We’ve struggled with leg-spinners over the last 10-15 yrs so we’re lucky we got one. Hopefully he can continue. Thanks to all the supporters, hopefully they'll come to the West Indies as well."

Aiden Markram | South Africa Skipper

"You're always going to be nervous in a final over finish like that. It can make you mentally quite tired but it’s great to be a part of games like these. (The catch) It could’ve gone anywhere but a few things went our way today so was great to be on the right side of that and get the win. You want to drag the game out as long as you can, it’s all conditions dependent so we wanted to drag the game out. We put him under quite a bit of pressure but David (Miller) has done it back to back to get us to decent scores."

We Appreciate You Joining! Thanks Again!
