Allround South Africa sweep series with resounding win

  • Dubai Oct 19-┬áIndia lost their top One Day International spot to South Africa in the latest team rankings released by International Cricket Council.
The Proteas returned to top spot with 6,244 points from 52 matches on Wednesday following their

South Africa posted 369-6 batting first, its highest score against Bangladesh in ODIs, and rolled out the tourists for 169 with almost 10 overs left unbowled. With this, South Africa won all the matches against Bangladesh thus far on this tour and will face the visitors for the two T20Is which follow.

South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis probably made up his mind on how to compensate for his duck in the previous game beforehand and the stylish batsman did exactly that against Bangladesh during the third and final ODI yesterday. Five of the top six batsmen departed for single-digit scores and it was not until Shakib Al Hasan and Sabbir Rahman came out to bat that Bangladesh had a mentionable partnership forming. There is no rush for du Plessis to return to action with South Africa's worldwide calendar blank until Boxing Day.

However openers Quinton de Kock (73) and Temba Bavuma (48) had already put on 119 for the first wicket, while skipper Faf du Plessis plundered 10 fours and a six for 91 off 67 deliveries and Aiden Markram hit a 60-ball 66.

Chelsea Players Reportedly 'Unhappy' with Antonio Conte's Methods Amid Slump
Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte says that midfielder N'Golo Kante's hamstring injury is less severe than first feared. Chelsea's players are said to now be unhappy with Antonio Conte and his training regime at Stamford Bridge.

Markram was run out, a repeat of his test debut when he was run out for 97, and Du Plessis had to be piggy-backed off the field by a teammate. He will miss the two-match Twenty20 worldwide series next week, where JP Duminy will now take over as skipper.

Paterson was the pick of the bowlers with his 3 for 44. AB de Villiers went past 9500 ODI runs in his 20, before a flurry for wickets stemmed the tide somewhat. Bangladesh bowlers Taskin Ahmed and Rubel Hossain tasted some late success and South Africa's innings came to an end with 369 for 6 on the board after 50 overs.

When Bangladesh batted they lost their first three wickets inside 6 overs to Kagiso Rabada and Dane Paterson and that was virtually the end of the contest.
