South Africa seal convincing series sweep over Bangladesh

While India and South Africa have 120 points against their name India are placed second on the basis of decimal points

The visitors' response started poorly as Paterson removed Imrul Kaynes (1) and Lifton Das (6) inside the first four overs.

The next to be dismissed was the in-form wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim (eight), who tried to clear the boundary only to get caught at mid-off. It seemed Bangladesh were headed towards another humiliation and a below-par score of under-100.

Set an imposing 370 to win, Bangladesh were bowled out for 169 in the 41st over with only Shakib Al Hasan (63) and Sabbir Rahman (39) offering any resistance.

But Bangladesh were never in the game actually, after losing quick wickets at the top of the batting order.

Dane Paterson was the pick of South Africa's bowlers with three for 44, while Markram completed a memorable debut with two for 18.

Interestingly, Markram swops batting places with Temba Bavuma in the white ball format, meaning Bavuma will actually open the batting with Quinton de Kock.

Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis won a long overdue toss and made a decision to bat first in the third and final ODI against Bangladesh at Buffalo Park in East London.

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.

Du Plessis was the highest scorer with an unbeaten 91 before retiring hurt. 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.

Du Plessis has been ruled out of the KFC T20 global series next week with JP Duminy taking over the captaincy and Dwaine Pretorius coming in as a replacement player. "He has been withdrawn from the upcoming T20I series against Bangladesh starting in Bloemfontein on Thursday".
