South Africa Complete Innings Victory

South Africa 429 (Prince 162no, Boucher 117, Shakib Al Hasan 6-99) beat
Bangladesh 250 (Zunaed Siddique 67) & 131 by an innings and 48 runs

Second Castle Test, Centurion Park, day three

Bangladesh collapsed to be 131 all out in their second innings which handed South Africa an innings and 48-run victory and a 2-0 series win on day three of the final Test at Centurion Park.

Three wickets in four balls from left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan helped Bangladesh bowl South Africa out for 429 but their batting folded dramatically after lunch, which they had taken on eight for one.

Shakib, who finished with six for 99, ended the 271-run stand between Ashwell Prince and Mark Boucher when he had Boucher caught at silly point by Raqibul Hasan and the next ball Morne Morkel chopped on to his stumps. Monde Zondeki narrowly survived the hat-trick ball before his second flicked off his glove to give wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim a simple catch.

Prince got past 150, registering his career-best score, shortly before Makhaya Ntini became the fifth man to get a duck in the innings when he was well caught at mid-off by Mohammad Ashraful.

Dale Steyn at least got off the mark before he was bowled via an inside edge to give Shahadat Hossain a wicket, leaving Prince unbeaten on 162.

South Africa, who won the first Test by an innings and 129 runs, set a new record for a Test score with five batsmen failing to score as they established a lead of 179 runs.

Kayes edged the penultimate delivery from Ntini of the session to Graeme Smith, who took a good catch low down at slip to start the demise.

Mohammad Ashraful (21), Mehrab Hossain junior (0) and Raqibul Hasan (28) were all run out as Bangladesh batted as if they were playing in a Twenty20 International.

Ntini, Morkel and Zondeki picked up two wickets apiece to hasten Bangladesh's demise.

Half-centuries from Zunaed Siddique and Mushfiqur Rahim helped Bangladesh post 250 on day one.
