In a display of batting prowess, Quinton de Kock played a pivotal role as South Africa delivered a crushing 149-run victory over Bangladesh in ODI 23 of the ongoing 2023 World Cup in Mumbai.
Chasing a challenging target of 383, Bangladesh’s top-order struggled from the onset, with Marco Jansen and Kagiso Rabada wreaking havoc. The openers, Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das fell for 12 and 22 runs, respectively, with Jansen and Rabada claiming their wickets. Jansen continued his onslaught, dismissing Najmul Hossain Shanto for a golden duck, while skipper Shakib Al Hasan managed just 1 run before being sent packing by Lizaad Williams.
In the second innings, Mahmudullah emerged as Bangladesh’s lone bright spot, smashing his third World Cup century with an impressive 111 off 111 balls. However, his valiant effort couldn’t turn the tide, as he lacked a suitable partner to build a substantial partnership. Eventually, Bangladesh was bowled out for 233 in 46.4 overs, with Gerald Coetzee taking three wickets and Jansen, Williams, and Rabada each securing two dismissals.
On the other hand, South Africa continued to showcase their batting strength, amassing a formidable 382/5 after opting to bat first. Quinton de Kock starred with a breathtaking 174 off 140 deliveries before falling to Hasan Mahmud. Aiden Markram provided valuable support with his 60 from 69 balls, while Henrich Klaasen continued his impressive tournament run with a blazing 90 in just 49 balls. David Miller concluded the innings in style, remaining unbeaten on 34 from 15 deliveries. South Africa’s batting excellence and powerful bowling performance secured a 149-run win.
