South Africa vs Bangladesh Highlights: De Kock’s 174 powers South Africa to 382/5

South Africa continued their impressive run in the World Cup 2023 with a crushing 149-run victory over Bangladesh at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday.

The Proteas, who have won four out of five matches so far, displayed their batting prowess by posting a mammoth 382/5 in 50 overs, thanks to a brilliant 174 by opener Quinton de Kock and a quickfire 90 by Heinrich Klaasen.

De Kock, who was playing his 150th ODI, smashed 16 fours and six sixes in his 136-ball knock, which was his third century of the tournament and the highest individual score by a South African in World Cups.

He shared a 142-run stand with skipper Aiden Markram (43) for the third wicket and a 120-run partnership with Klaasen for the fourth wicket. Klaasen, who scored his second fifty of the tournament, blasted seven fours and four sixes in his 51-ball innings.

Bangladesh’s bowlers had no answer to the onslaught as they conceded their highest total in World Cups. Hasan Mahmud was the most expensive bowler, giving away 91 runs in his nine overs.

Shoriful Islam took two wickets but also leaked 80 runs in his 10 overs. Nasum Ahmed was the only economical bowler, conceding just 46 runs in his 10 overs and picking up one wicket.

Chasing a daunting target of 383, Bangladesh never looked in contention as they lost wickets at regular intervals.

Rabada was the pick of the bowlers, taking three wickets for 41 runs in his nine overs. Coetzee and Williams also took two wickets each.

Bangladesh’s only resistance came from Mahmudullah, who scored a fighting century, his third in World Cups.

He was the last man out as Bangladesh were bowled out for 233 in 46.4 overs, suffering their fourth consecutive defeat in the tournament.
