Liton Das or Nasir Hossain is in all likelihood to play after the BCB president Nazmul Hassan said they are probable to add an extra batsman to the line-up on Friday. South Africa may additionally keep their winning aggregate going, however considering they had earmarked the T20Is as a capacity to take a look at the mettle of their fringe players, wicketkeeper Mangaliso Mosehle, quick bowler Dwaine Pretorius and left-arm wrist-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi would possibly nevertheless make the XI.
David Miller smashed the quickest T20I century off 35 balls, beating countryman Richard Levi by 10 deliveries. In doing so, Miller took South Africa to a collection win and a ancient clean-sweep throughout codecs against a journeying team, the first such occasion in 17 excursions in which they have played an opposition in all three formats. As a result, Bangladesh leaves the u . s . a . empty-handed, defeated in the Tests, ODIs and T20Is, with Miller’s mauling being the remaining nail in the coffin. South Africa, with new instruct Ottis Gibson at the helm, aimed to be as ruthless as viable in this early-season series, and underlined that intention with this performance, in their a centesimal T20 international.
Hashim Amla set the tone with his eighty five off fifty one balls and seemed set for a century but used to be pushed aside in the seventeenth over, trying to clear the midwicket boundary. Miller was on forty two off 20 balls at the time, with 21 balls left in the innings. Miller, however, needed only 15 of these to get the fifty eight runs that took him to a hundred, which includes five sixes in succession off Mohammad Saifuddin in the penultimate over of the innings. Bangladesh had reason to rue that assault, for they ought to have dismissed Miller early in his innings, even before he had a run to his name. The second ball Miller faced used to be short from Rubel Hossain and he gloved it down the leg side. Mushfiqur Rahim, the wicketkeeper, dived one-handed to his right, received to the ball however should now not preserve on. In the subsequent over, Miller charged Saifuddin and lofted a power over the covers. Three fielders converged on the ball however the ball landed between them.
At that juncture in the game, Bangladesh have been greater concerned about Amla, who was once timing the ball well and had sauntered to his fifty off 32 balls. He held together the first 1/2 of South Africa’s innings, in which the traffic stored them pretty quiet. Shakib Al Hasan bowled both Mangaliso Mosehle and JP Duminy for single-digit scores and AB de Villiers holed out to long-off for 20. South Africa were seventy eight for 3 at the midway stage when Amla began to up the ante. He took on the short ball, which Bangladesh presented in abundance, and allowed Miller sufficient time to settle. Miller seemed to need it and ought to have been out a 0.33 time when he came out of his crease and edged Mahmudullah in the 15th over, with the ball rolling in the direction of the stumps, but lacking it eventually. Miller made it returned in time and prevented being stumped. That was, however, the ultimate of the nerves proven by means of him.
Miller slammed the next ball over long-off for the first of his nine sixes. There was once a good deal more to come. He dispatched Rubel to cow corner for four in the subsequent over, then despatched him over long-on for two sixes in the subsequent three balls. By the time Amla used to be dismissed, Miller had bought his eye in. He reached his half-century with a top-edge off a hook and observed that up by way of smashing a Taskin Ahmed full toss over long-on before the showstopper. Saifuddin, who had figures of 2 for 22 from his first three overs, started out his final over with a full, slower ball. Miller clobbered it for a six. Then, he went quicker however still full, outdoor off. Miller went inside-out over the covers for six. The 0.33 ball was once also full, Miller shuffled across and flicked behind square leg for the 0.33 six. Then Saifuddin darted the subsequent one full down the leg facet and out got here every other flick for another six. It was once only after he had been hit for 4 consecutive sixes that Saifuddin received some recommendation from his captain however to no avail. He went short and Miller pulled. For six.
Only two different players have hit six sixes in a row in an over in international cricket, one of them a South African – Herschelle Gibbs – and Miller was on the cusp of becoming a member of them. The remaining ball used to be full and huge and Miller went down on one knee however drove it alongside the ground for one. He used to be disenchanted however stored strike, which enabled him to go for a hundred in the ultimate over. Miller fell over as he reached for a full Rubel transport that he despatched for 4 and then under-edged a full toss for four greater before a brace of twos took him to the quickest hundred in this format. Farhaan Behardien, the non-striker, used to be as a lot a spectator as the beleaguered Bangladesh attack. While Shakib conceded only 22 runs off his four overs, the different five bowlers gave away 201 runs off sixteen overs at 12.5 an over. Saifuddin’s 31-run fourth over meant he finished with 2 for fifty three but Miller may want to be heard commiserating with him as the groups left the field.
“Tough luck,” Miller said. For Bangladesh, it only got tougher. They have by no means scored over 200 in a T20 and needed 225 this time. They started well, with 17 runs off the first over but South Africa had a trick up their sleeve. Duminy added himself on in the 2nd over and ought to have had a wicket immediately. Soumya Sarkar took him on and despatched the ball straight to Robbie Frylinck at mid-on, who had to take a simple capture but may want to now not keep on. Duminy kept Sarkar quiet for the rest of that over and on the final ball, he was determined to get a pass on and referred to as for a suicidal single after belting the ball into the covers. Miller accrued and threw the ball broad of Mosehle, who had to go to his left however had ample time to accumulate and run Imrul Kayes out. Rather than see himself as a novelty, Duminy endured and in his subsequent over, struck the killer blow. Shakib made room and Duminy aimed at the stumps and bowled him. In the subsequent over, Mushfiqur edged Frylink to Mosehle; Bangladesh were 32 for three before 5 overs have been up and they had little chance left to stage a comeback. It was only a matter of time for them and all of South Africa’s bowlers enjoyed some reward as they wrapped up a professional, clinical victory.
