Bangladesh run out of fight
Saturday 29 November 2008
South Africa won the second Test against Bangladesh by an innings and 48 runs yesterday after three middle-order run outs contributed to the visitors' weak second innings 131 all out. Ashwell Prince (right) was named man-of-the-match and the series after scoring a career-best 162 not out in South Africa's 429, which allowed the home side to complete a second innings victory in the two-Test series.
Bangladesh, trailing by 179 runs on the first innings, lost the key wickets of Mohammad Ashraful (21), Mehrab Hossain (0) and Raqibul Hasan (28) to direct hits by Dale Steyn, Hashim Amla and Prince respectively. Makhaya Ntini bowled Mushfiqur Rahim (4) and Monde Zondeki then claimed two wickets in the closing stages.
The exceptional spinning talents of Sri Lanka's Ajantha Mendis were on display again yesterday as he took 6 for 29 to lead his side to one-day victory over Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe, who were put in to bat, were skittled for 146 before Jehan Mubarak made an unbeaten 60 to guide Sri Lanka home although they were eight wickets down by the time they made the runs and had been 116 for 7.
