BD vs SA: Tanzim, Taskin restrict South Africa to 113/6

Bangladeshi bowlers destroyed the batting lineup of South Africa to restrict them to 113 in the 21st match of ICC Men's T20 World Cup at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Monday.

After decided to bat first, South Africa started their innings with aggression, hitting a huge six in the second ball of Tanzim Hasan Sakib, but the Bangladeshi bowler halted their way and replied with rapid wickets.

Tanzim Hasan Sakib star with three three wickets while Taskin joined him with two and Rishad removed one.

The end of a very good four overs for Tanzim Hasan Sakib, who's first three balls cost 10 runs, he only conceded eight more runs and picked up the wickets of Reeza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock and Tristan Stubbs. He bowled 12 dot balls in his four overs. Not only is this Tanzim's career-best but also the best figures by a Bangladesh seamer against South Africa and the second-best overall.

However, Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller looked to revive South Africa from a shaky start with a 79-run stand for the fifth wicket, but the pair could never really accelerate on a two-paced wicket on which the Bangladesh spinners also displayed control.

Tanzim struck thrice in his opening burst to leave South Africa reeling at 23 for four inside the first five overs.

After Quinton de Kock (18) showed aggressive intent by hitting the right-arm bowler for a six and a four in the initial exchanges, Tanzim made immediate amends to his line and length and hit Reeza Hendricks in front of the stumps for a golden duck.

In fact, it was his simple yet effective tactics of bowling at the wickets paid high dividends as Tanzim cleaned up South Africa captain Aiden Markram (4), who missed a straight one with his bat coming down a bit awkwardly.

Tristan Stubbs (0) had done a fine job of rebuilding the innings for South Africa in their last outing against the Netherlands, but the right-hander too had a soft dismissal to endure.

As if the ball stopped on Stubbs — like it had on a couple of Indian batters a day before at this venue — he played one meekly to Shakib Al Hasan at cover who put in a dive to collect the ball.
South Africa also had the luck favouring them when Miller, on 13, was given a reprieve by Litton Das behind the wickets on the first ball of Mahmudullah’s spell.
To their credit, both Klaasen and Miller assessed the conditions and the pitch perfectly to lead the rescue act for the Proteas.
Klaasen hit a couple of sixes upfront against Bangladesh spinners to push them back while Miller was content in rotating the strike. However, he was cleaned up by Taskin late in the innings after a 44-ball knock, studded with two fours and three sixes.

Klaasen and Miller did find run-scoring difficult on the Nassau County pitch since they were forced to curb their attacking instinct.
