The South African team is in their form in the tournament. Batting first is beneficial for the team. The opener Quinton de Kock led the team to score 382 after playing long shots. He contributed 174 runs off 140 balls. Reeza Hendricks did not add much more. This was the single side match because the bowling of Bangladesh could not create pressure on the players. Quinton and Heinrich smashed the bowlers excellently.

The two early wickets fell at the start. Hendricks and Rassie fell prey to the Bangladeshi bowlers. They added just 13 runs in the win. Aiden Markram hit seven fours and brought their runs to 167.  But he completed his 60 runs and went back to the pavilion on the ball of Shakib. But it seemed that it was good that Klaasen came to play the innings. Quinton and Klassen’s positive attitude and play fearlessly is the strength of the team. In the same way, Quinton de Kock reached his 100 runs off 101 balls. Moreover, Klaasen made his fifty in 34 deliveries.
