South African bowlers overcame Bangladesh in a tense low-scoring thriller at New York’s Nassau County International Stadium in match number 21 of the 2024 T20 World Cup. The outcome marked South Africa’s third win in succession, as they strengthened their grip at the top of the Group D points table.

Here’s the timeline of how BAN vs SA panned out in New York:

BAN vs SA Highlights: Tanzim Hasan Sakib Blows Away SA Top-Order With Three-Fer

Bangladesh’s new-ball paceman Tanzim Hasan Sakib made instant impact in the match by trapping South African opener Reeza Hendricks plumb in front of stumps within the first over. A couple of overs later, the speedster cleaned up senior Proteas cricketer Quinton de Kock with an angling delivery before getting rid of dangerman Tristan Stubbs for a duck.

Tanzim Hasan’s three-wicket burst with the new-ball, coupled with Taskin Ahmed accounting for rival captain Aiden Markram ensured South Africa faltered its way to 25-4 at the end of the opening powerplay.

BAN vs SA Highlights: Klaasen, David Miller Lead South African Recovery

Forming forces at 23-4 in 4.2 overs, South African number five Heinrich Klaasen and explosive middle-order basher David Miller forged a cautious 79-run partnership at run-a-ball to take the Proteas past the 100-run mark.

In-form Miller, who clubbed a rebellious 59* in the previous game, cracked 29 runs from 38 balls in the middle-overs while Klaasen top-scored in the innings through his calculated 44-ball 46. Klaasen and Miller’s dismissals in quick succession courtesy of Taskin Ahmed and Rishad Hossain respectively hampered South Africa’s momentum as they eventually finished at 113-6 from 20 overs.

BAN vs SA Highlights: Rabada, Maharaj Strike Early For South Africa

Bangladesh opener Tanzid Hasan and number three batter Litton Das both contributed nine runs each in the run-chase before crumbling in front of Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj respectively.

Chasing 114 runs for a win, Bangladesh struggled to get going at 29-2 in 6.1 overs.

BAN vs SA Highlights: Anrich Nortje Pummels Bangladesh Further With Double Strike

Introduced into the attack after the powerplay, lanky South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje struck twice in his opening three-over spell as Bangladesh’s run-chase troubles worsened at 50-4. After taming senior-man Shakib Al Hasan with a scorching short delivery, Nortje’s 146kph pace bested well-set opening batter and Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto

BAN vs SA Highlights: Maharaj, Rabada Hold Nerve To Secure Narrow SA Win

After Bangladesh slipped to 50-4 in 10 overs, middle-order batters Towhid Hridoy (37 off 34 balls) and Mahmudullah (20 off 27 balls) led their team back into reckoning with a 44-run stand at run-a-ball.

However, against the run of play, Hridoy was trapped in front by Kagiso Rabada while Keshav Maharaj (3-27) held his nerve in the final over to secure a thrilling four-run win for South Africa.
