2nd Innings 

FINAL FOUR!!! With the last few overs to go, it's Thriller time yet again as Bangladesh & South Africa both are very much in the game. After 16.0 overs BAN is 88/4 they need 26 runs in 23 balls and the Proteas need wickets to make a comeback in the game. 

RAINING BOUNDARIES!!! After losing wickets in bulk Bangladeshi batters are accelerating their innings. After 14.0 overs BAN is 75/4, they need 39 runs in 34 balls to win the game. 

OUT!! Anrich Nortje has bounced another batter out.  The ball shoots up off the deck and once again, just like Shakib Al Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto is also hurried on the pull shot. Skipper Aiden Markram comes in from mid-wicket and takes another dolly of a catch. After 10.0 overs BAN is 50/4

BIG BLOW!!! Bangladesh is now in some serious trouble as they lose their most experienced player, Shakib al Hasan, Nortje strikes the big wicket as SA makes their position stronger in the game. After 8.0 overs BAN is 40/3

WICKET!!! With the spin attack coming into the play Keshav Maharaj strikes the big wicket of Linton Das. Gone first ball and Litton Das cannot believe it.

END OF POWERPLAY!!! Not a very good start with the bat for Bangladesh, as the Proteas' pace attacks tried to grip the game. After 6.0 overs BAN is 29/1

EARLY WICKET!!! OUT! EDGED AND GONE!  Tanzid Hasan was not sure if he nicked it walked across to his skipper and had a chat but Najmul Hossain Shanto too had heard a sound here. Tanzid Hasan has to go. Kagiso Rabada has the final laugh! Short in length and around off, hits the deck hard and bowls it just outside off. Tanzid Hasan looks to cut but gets a faint edge to the keeper who makes no mistake. After 3.0 overs BAN is 13/3

1st Innings 

With that, hopefully, we'll be witnessing yet another low-scoring thriller as South Africa has been brilliantly restricted to 113 runs by Bangladesh. Bowlers are having the best time of their lives here in the USA after a Run Fiesta IPL 2024. Exciting Chase Coming Up!!!!!

BOWLED!!!! A perfect time to get the wicket of Heinrich Klassen! Bangladesh is on top here. High-class delivery by Taskin Ahmad to dismiss the in-form Klassen

FINAL FOUR!!! With the last four overs to go, Miller & Klassen will look to get as many runs as possible and reach a fighting total at this wicket. We all know what happened last night. How much will SA score? After 17.0 overs SA is 100/4

PARTNERSHIP!!! Miller & Klassen are doing the damage control as they build a 50+ partnership. Inching close to a big total on this wicket. After 14.0 overs SA is 80/4

SA's COMEBACK? After getting off to a slow and tumbling start SA batters Klassen & Miller are building a crucial partnership at the moment. After 10.0 overs SA is 57/4

END OF POWERPLAY !!! Excellent from Bangladesh in the Powerplay! South Africa has lost 4 wickets early on and at the moment they would be retrospecting their own toss decision. After 6.0 overs SA is 25/4
