South Africa took an unassialbale 2-0 lead in the three-match Warid Telecom ODI series by defeating Bangladesh by 7 wickets in the 2nd ODI at Chittaging Divisional Stadium on Wednesday.
A 5th wicket record partnership between Rokibul Hasan and Sakib Al Hasan lifted Bangladesh to 137-5 from a sorry 18-4, but after another lower middle order collapse Bangladesh could only manage 173 before being bowled out in 48.2 overs.
South Africa suffered an initial wobble in their innings but an assuring 119 run partnership between AB de Villiers and JP Duminy ensured a comfortable 7 wicket victory with 11 balls to spare.
Bangladesh will face South Africa for the dead rubber at the same venue on Friday.
