SA restrict Bangladesh to 143

Albie Morkel took four wickets and Johan Botha three to help South Africa bundle out Bangladesh for a paltry 143 runs on Friday in the third and final one-day international, moving them closer to a clean sweep of the series.

Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful sent his side to bat after winning the toss, but they started losing wickets from the 10th over of the day when opener Tamim Iqbal (8) was caught behind by AB de Villiers off A Morkel who finished on his career best 4-29.

Opener Shahriar Nafees top-scored with 25, followed by Farhad Reza at 20 not out and Nazim Uddin 20. Nafees was caught behind by de Villiers off Morne Morkel.

Uddin was caught at mid wicket by captain Graeme Smith off a delivery from A Morkel.

Of the five catches taken by wicketkeeper De Villiers, two were from the deliveries from A Morkel, two from Botha and the other off M Morkel. Botha also bowled out Shakib Al Hasan for 12.

South Africa won the series 2-0 beating Bangladesh by seven wickets in Dhaka on Wednesday. They beat Bangladesh by nine wickets in Chittagong on Sunday. – Reuters
