• Proteas brush aside BCBXI

    The Proteas made light work of their T20 warm-up match against a Bangladesh Cricket Board XI when they kicked off their tour with a thumping eight-wicket victory.

    Faf du Plessis lost the toss and was asked to bowl first. The BCB XI didn’t offer much resistance and crumbled to 99 all out.¬†Seamer Kyle Abbott (2-2), left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso (2-19)¬†and David Wiese (3-13) did the damage with the ball.

    AB de Villiers (25) opened the South African innings with Quinton de Kock (35) and together they reached 64 before both retired to give the rest of the batting order a whack.

    JP Duminy (17) and David Miller (20) finished off the chase in the 12th over.

    South Africa play the first of two T20 internationals against Bangladesh on Sunday.
