Commentary (South Africa innings)

So that's it from us for this game. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. South Africa will want to continue the hammering while Bangladesh will hope for some respite with a win. The 2nd ODI will be played on 18th October, 2017 at Boland Park, Paarl. Action begins at 1000 local (0800 GMT). We look forward to your company. Until then, it's goodbye and take care.

Man of the Match, Quinton de Kock is very excited to have got to bat. His side didn't need him much in the Tests and he is happy that got a chance here. Felt the wicket was a tad slow when they bowled and when they batted it skidded on and came nicely onto the bat. Is happy to contribute to the team's cause by scoring runs and spending time in the middle. Jokes that he has a more calming influence on Amla but goes on to add that it is a privilege to bat with the the senior partner.

Faf du Plessis says that they are playing really well. Calls it a dominating performance. Adds that they are feeling sorry for the Bangladeshi team as it has been a tough tour for them. Opines that they need to be ruthless. Credits his boys for being hungry and executing their plans. Reckons that the deck got a bit better to bat on in the second innings. Feels that change of pace was the way to go on this track. Informs that they have different tactics for every bowler. States that they wanted to give Phehlukwayo an opportunity if a wicket fell, when they were around 150. Ends by saying that de Kock was exceptional and Amla was brilliant as ever.

Mashrafe Mortaza begins by crediting Rahim's knock but laments the missed chances on the field. Admits that it was tough to get a breakthrough. Calls it a good wicket to bat on and hence they struggled to pick wickets. Reckons that Tests and ODIs are different. Not giving runs builds pressure and it leads to wickets in the latter. Informs that since Tamim Iqbal wasn't fit, they sent Shakib Al Hasan up the order. Opines that injuries to the key players cannot be blamed for the loss. Hopes that Iqbal gets fit for the next game.

The Bangladesh bowlers lacked discipline and the SA openers made them pay for it. Mashrafe Mortaza failed to inspire his troops and will have to turn things around quickly in this short series. The hosts will be delighted with their effort, they were very professional. Might want to rework on some of their bowling plans, but otherwise had a near-perfect day. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony.

Crushing win for South Africa, a record chase for them - highest run chase with no wickets lost. Both Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock were untroubled during their stay at the crease and helped themselves to a ton each. They hit the ball to all parts of the ground, broke records at the drop of a hat and made merry of the lives presented. It was sheer bullying if one can say. That they finished off the chase with so much time left and 10 wickets in hand, tells you everything about the bowling. It was toothless to put it mildly.

42.5 M Mortaza to de Kock, FOUR! What a thumping victory for the hosts! Length delivery on off, de Kock heaves it through mid-wicket to find the fence. Take a bow, Quinton and Amla. Absolutely scintillating batting display by the duo. Big smiles all around in the Protea camp. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 10 WICKETS WITH 43 BALLS TO SPARE! 282/0

42.4 M Mortaza to de Kock, FOUR! Quinton de Kock almost seals it in style! Bowled on a good length around off, de Kock hoicks it over mid-wicket. The ball seems to have gone all the way. The umpires are not sure and refer it upstairs. Replays show the ball landed just short of the ropes. So 1 more needed! 278/0

42.3 M Mortaza to de Kock, This ball is punched towards covers. 274/0

42.2 M Mortaza to H Amla, Short delivery around off and middle, pulled away through backward square leg for a run. 274/0

42.1 M Mortaza to de Kock, Dropped again! This time Nasir Hossain, the culprit and Quinton de Kock the beneficiary. Mortaza hurls it on a length around off from round the wicket, the batsman charges down and hits it towards long on. The fielder there backtracks a tad but fails to hold onto it. He has a second attempt at that yet fails to cling on. One run taken. 273/0

41.6 T Ahmed to H Amla, Another yorker around off, dug out towards backward point. 272/0

41.5 T Ahmed to H Amla, Yorker around off, Amla digs it out towards backward point. 272/0

41.4 T Ahmed to de Kock, Taskin, you don't get out if the ball hits the bat in front of the stumps! It was bowled fuller around middle and leg, de Kock flicked it away through square leg for a run. Strangely though, Ahmed yells a loud appeal. Grins shyly when he realizes that it went off the bat. 272/0

41.4 T Ahmed to de Kock, WIDE! Sprayed full and down the leg side, Quinton flicks but misses. There was a slight sound as the ball passed the batter which made the bowler appeal. Wide signaled by the umpire in response. 271/0

41.3 T Ahmed to de Kock, FOUR! Taskin bowls a slower off-cutter around middle, de Kock stays in the crease and hammers it over mid-wicket. The ball races away to the fence instead of going over, as he got it off the toe end of the bat. 270/0

41.2 T Ahmed to H Amla, This delivery is pushed through covers for a run. 266/0

41.1 T Ahmed to H Amla, On a length around leg, Amla shuffles a tad and looks to clip it away but misses. The keeper collects and Bangladesh appeal to no avail though. They think of a review but decide against it. Good on them as the Snicko didn't spot an edge there. 265/0

40.6 M Mortaza to de Kock, Mortaza runs round the wicket and lands it around off, the batsman punches it to mid off. 265/0

40.5 M Mortaza to H Amla, Short around off, pulled away in front of square on the leg side for one run. 265/0

40.4 M Mortaza to de Kock, Mortaza bowls it around middle and leg, de Kock drives it straight back. But the bowler's momentum takes him to his left due to which he is unable to prevent a run there. 264/0

40.3 M Mortaza to H Amla, Speared outside off, driven through covers for a run. 263/0

40.2 M Mortaza to H Amla, Bowled outside off, hit straight to the man stationed at backward point. 262/0

40.1 M Mortaza to H Amla, Mashrafe lands it on a length around middle and leg, Amla tucks it through backward square leg. Such is the fitness and urge to score runs by these two, that they hare back for two runs. 262/0

Third Powerplay has been signaled. A maximum of five fielders can be outside the circle now. However, with the way these two are playing, even 11 players out won't help the visitors.

39.6 T Ahmed to H Amla, Another dab towards third man for a run. It was on a length outside off. 260/0

39.5 T Ahmed to de Kock, Shorter delivery on the pads, pulled through backward square leg for a run. 259/0

38.5 M Mortaza to de Kock, This ball is driven to mid off. He thinks of a single before aborting. The fielder hits the bull's eye at the striker's end but the batter is safe. 253/0

38.4 M Mortaza to de Kock, SIX! De Kock is seeing the cricket ball like a football. He positions himself much before the ball is delivered and has no trouble in hitting it in the area that he wants. This time he shuffles across, Mortaza hurls it around middle and leg. The southpaw swings his bat and collects a biggie as the ball lands on the full on the backward square leg rope. The umpires have a second look for confirmation and are happy that it is a maximum indeed. He moves to 149 with that. 253/0

Entertainment galore - This is the joint highest partnership for any SA batting pair in ODIS.

38.3 M Mortaza to de Kock, Landed in line of the stumps, pushed back towards the bowler. 247/0

37.5 T Ahmed to H Amla, There is the 26th ODI ton for the Mighty Hash! Gets it off a dab towards third man. He has looked solid as ever and classy as always. Knowing the bearded batter, he would look to carry on till the end without throwing it away now. Well played, master! 244/0

37.4 T Ahmed to H Amla, FOUR! Haughty Hashim helps himself to another boundary that takes him to 99! Taskin bowls it short and wide, Amla doesn't need a second invitation to free his arms. He does so and plays it over point for a boundary. The fielder in the deep didn't stand a chance of cutting that off. 243/0

37.3 T Ahmed to H Amla, Served outside off, hit straight to the backward point fielder. 239/0

37.2 T Ahmed to de Kock, Length ball on the leg, pulled away through square leg for a run. 239/0

37.1 T Ahmed to H Amla, Dropped! Sums up Bangladesh's day today. It is speared fuller around off and middle, Amla looks to drive it on the up. Ends up offering a catch to Ahmed who spills the chance. What's worse, the ball deflects to the leg side and the batsmen run one. 238/0

Taskin Ahmed is back to roll his arm over.

36.6 M Saifuddin to H Amla, Now Hashim opens the face of the bat to guide it to third man for a run. Very costly over as 18 came off it. 237/0

36.2 M Saifuddin to de Kock, FOUR! And another one, this time past mid off. The captain is the man at that position and he couldn't do anything there. Full toss around off, de Kock smashes it down the ground for another boundary. 227/0

36.1 M Saifuddin to de Kock, FOUR! De Kock helps himself to another boundary. Saifuddin runs in and spears it on the pads, the southpaw flicked it through short fine leg. The fielder there took ages to get down and the ball races away to the fence. Mortaza doesn't seem happy with the effort. 223/0

Drinks have been called on the field. How identical this break is for both the sides - the hosts need it because both their openers are still at the crease, while the visitors would welcome it as it is the only break that they have got with no wickets fallen yet.

29.3 Al Hasan to de Kock, FOUR! There it is! Hundred no. 13 in ODIs for Quinton de Kock. How commanding yet easy to the eye he has looked. Nobody in the ground today has been able to trouble him.

26.1 T Ahmed to H Amla, On a length outside off, Amla looks to push at it but misses. The ball flies to the keeper. As the ball passes the bat, there is a slight sound but no appeal whatsoever from the visitors. Remember, Amla is a walker, so there might not have been bat involved there. 159/0

Stat Alert - This is the highest opening partnership for South Africa in ODIs against Bangladesh.

This time however, in spite of a pretty good effort by the fielder in the deep, the batsmen run two. Quinton smashes it to the leg side and as he completes the second, he dashes into the keeper. No harm done though. 148/0

24.1 T Ahmed to de Kock, This delivery is played straight to the fielder at backward point. 144/0

Taskin Ahmed is brought back to bowl. With the pace that he possesses, he needed to have ruffled up the batsmen but sadly that hasn't been the case so far. He still has a chance.

23.5 R Hossain to de Kock, And it just isn't about the boundaries, it's also about how well these two have run. This ball is a prime example.

23.3 R Hossain to de Kock, FOUR! Spanked! Hossain steams in from over the wicket and bowls it short. De Kock picks up the length early and pulls it through square leg for another boundary. This isn't a track to bowl short at all. 143/0

23.2 R Hossain to H Amla, Similar delivery around off but the shot is different. Amla wrists it through square leg for a run. The fielder at deep mid-wicket did well to get there quickly and restrict them to a single. 139/0
