Even before the commencement of the match between South Africa and Bangladesh, the Proteas were claimed to be the fan favourites and were likely to win the match as well. However, the fate changed for the Bangladesh cricket team as Shakib Al Hasan (75 off 84 balls) and Mushfiqur Rahim (78 off 80 balls) both showed their exceptional batting skills. Then, later, skipper Mashrafe Mortaza revealed that Rahim played his exceptional innings whilst fasting. Apart from that, Mahmudullah who scored 46 not out off just 33 deliveries and Mehidy Hasan with an economy of 4.40 were also playing the match despite fasting.  In his 10 overs, Hasan gave just 44 runs and picked up one wicket.

Their commitment towards the game helped them to register this historic win against the Proteas. Mashrafe Mortaza also praised the dedication of these players.

He said in the post match presentation that, “I’m proud of Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad and Mehidy Hasan Miraz as they were fasting and played at their best today.”

This match will definitely help the Bangladesh cricket team change their fate and will bring in a lot of positives to the side. In this game against the Proteas, with the help of their extra ordinary batting skills, they have managed to put up a huge total of 330 runs. They were successful in restricting the Proteas to just 309 runs and emerged as winners.

Bangladesh will play its next match against New Zealand on June 5 at The Oval.
