JP Duminy has been handed over the trophy. He is all smiles and is posing for a photograph with his teammates. That brings us to the close of a one-sided series. The visitors never really turned up and were beaten black and blue. They are dominant at home but they have to improve drastically in alien conditions if they are to narrow the gulf between them and the top nations. On the other hand, the Proteas are going from strength-to-strength. They tested their bench strength and a lot of players came out with flying colours. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the future games. Till then, adios and take care!
Victorious South Africa skipper, JP Duminy says that he is happy with the team. Feels that when someone scores a ton from 30-odd balls, you are gonna end up at the winning side. Mentions that he is working on his bowling and is pleased that it came out well for him. States that everyone got an outing and it augurs well for them. Informs that a big series is coming up against India. Ends by saying that they will have to play really well to beat them.
Man of the Match, David Miller says that scoring the fastest century is very special. Further adds that it feels great. Mentions that he was scratchy to begin with but once he started timing the ball, he grew in confidence. Opines that representing your country is an honour and it is a privilege for him. States that he hit five maximums and was in the zone. Adds that he wanted the sixth one as well but wasn't able to execute the shot.
Bangladesh skipper, Shakib Al Hasan says that they started off well and bowled in good areas in the first ten overs. Mentions that the way Miller played was outstanding. Feels that this game was a reflection of the series. Reckons that they have been terrific at home in two years but have to improve a lot overseas. States they they had their chances early on with Miller but couldn't capitalize. Credits Miller and Amla for their knocks. Ends by saying that they will play Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe next at home and hopes that they will do well.
Only Soumya Sarkar was the one who put up a resemblance of a fight as the rest just capitulated as they have almost on the entire tour. Everyone picked up a wicket for South Africa apart from Beuran Hendricks with JP Duminy and Aaron Phangiso taking two each. The Tigers kept playing their shots and found the fielders regularly to lose by a huge margin.
What a thumping win! South Africa continue their domination of Bangladesh and how? They blanked them in each and every game on this tour and have shown how good and professional a team they are, no matter who plays for them. Today, they were on course for a good total before David Miller powered them to a strong one with his breathtaking century. The chase was never going to be testing and the tourists found that out the hard way.
