South Africa crush Bangladesh by 104 runs in 2nd ODI

Click play on the video above to watch the best of De Villiers' phenomenal innings in Paarl. But in the first ODI visitor, Bangladesh suffer stunned ideal ten wickets victory as South African opening Batsmen score the mammoth target without any loss.

De Villiers' last worldwide was at the Champions Trophy in England in June. Mahmudullah added 35 to slash the deficit.

De Villiers hit his career-best score in 50-over cricket in his first global innings in four months, taking South Africa to 353-6 after it was put in to bat by Bangladesh at Boland Park. Rubel Hossain took three wickets in his last two overs to finish with four for 62. However, Rubel Hossain put an end to the fiery innings, and to his fellow bowlers' suffering as well.

De Villiers took only 68 balls to get to 100, and only 25 balls to go from 100 to 150, when he launched a flurry of sixes over square leg and midwicket.

Sehwag, who was the second batsman in history, after Sachin Tendulkar, to score a ODI double ton, had written that De Villiers could become the first ever middle order ODI batsman to post 200.

"It's at the highest tempo I have seen in my 34-year career", Andrew Parker told reporters on Tuesday. Many more will have been prevented by the early interventions we and the police make.

The only joy for Bangladesh was a short period after the initial 10-over powerplay when the World's No 1 all-rounder Shakib-al-Hasan trapped De Kock lbw before sending down a attractive delivery to clean bowl the Proteas skipper for a three-ball duck. The wicketkeeper-batsman had made 46.

But they lost skipper Faf du Plessis for a duck.

De Villiers was the driving force of both those stands, making 86 of the 136 runs he put on with Amla and 90 of the 117 he put on with Duminy.

It was a good day for Rubel, who bagged four wickets, while Shakib had that double strike to his name.

After massive series lose in Test match which proves the dominance of the Proteas.
