South Africa Defeats Bangladesh in a Tense Low-Scoring Match

In a thrilling encounter at the T20 World Cup, South Africa held off Bangladesh by a narrow margin of four runs, maintaining their unbeaten record in the tournament. The match was a low-scoring affair, with South Africa managing only 113 runs in their allotted 20 overs. However, their bowlers proved to be up to the task, restricting Bangladesh to 109 runs.

The South African innings got off to a shaky start, losing three wickets for just 23 runs. However, David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen steadied the ship with a 79-run partnership. Klaasen top-scored with 46 runs, while Miller contributed 29.

Bangladesh's chase also faltered early on, losing three wickets for 37 runs. Litton Das and Towhid Hridoy put on a 44-run partnership to revive the innings, but wickets continued to fall at regular intervals.

With 11 runs needed off the final six deliveries, Bangladesh looked to be on the verge of victory. However, spinner Keshav Maharaj held his nerve and bowled a brilliant final over, conceding only one run and taking two wickets.

The victory was a crucial one for South Africa, who consolidated their position at the top of Group D. They will now face Nepal in their final group stage match on Friday. Bangladesh, meanwhile, will take on the Netherlands on Thursday.

South Africa's bowlers were the heroes of the match, with Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, and Anrich Nortje all taking two wickets each.
