Bangladesh lose warm-up
Prince clips the ball through the leg side
Ashwell Prince top scored for the home side
One-day match, Soweto: South Africa A 279-5 (50 overs) beat Bangladesh 207-8 (50 overs) by 72 runs

Bangladesh suffered a setback ahead of the one-day international series as they were outplayed by South Africa's second XI.

Skipper Neil McKenzie, Ashwell Prince and Martin van Jaarsveld made half centuries for the home side.

And David Terbrugge then took four for 23 as Bangladesh came up well short of their target.

There was consolation for the tourists with five batsmen spending valuable time in the middle, including Khaled Mahmud, whose enterprising 49 not out took just 44 balls.

Double strike

Youngster Tapash Baisya was the pick of the Bangladesh attack, taking four for 49 after captain Khaled Mashud won the toss and opted to put South Africa A in first

He struck first by bowling Andrew Hall (21) and then removed Loots Bosman (18) in his next over to reduce the home side to 44 for two.

But Bangladesh's progress was halted as Prince and van Jaarsveld shared a stand of 102 in 22 overs.

Van Jaarsveld, who could win his first senior one-day cap later this week, made exactly 50 before he was caught by Baisya off Sanwar Hossain.

Prince anchored the innings with 87 but the fireworks were provided by McKenzie, who hit a six and eight fours in racing to 77 off 55 balls.

Openers go early

Bangladesh found Terbrugge a handful as they began their reply and he claimed the wickets of Al Sahariar and Habibul Bashar at a cost of only 11 runs in his initial six-over burst.

He later returned to add the wickets of Alok Kapali (38) and Mashud, and 20-year-old paceman Monde Zondeki weighed in with figures of three for 38.

Kapali put on 61 for the fifth wicket with Hossain, who showed a solid technique and temperament in his 42.

Hossain's innings came to an end end when he edged spinner Robin Peterson to Thami Tsolekile, one of five catches in the innings to the wicket-keeper.


South Africa A: L Bosman, A Hall, A Prince, M van Jaarsveld, N McKenzie (capt), J Rudolph, R Peterson, T Tsolekile, D Terbrugge, A Nel, M Zondeki.

Bangladesh: Hannan Sarkar, Al Sahariar, Habibul Bashar, Tushar Imran, Sanwar Hossain, Alok Kapali, Khaled Mashud (capt), Khaled Mahmud, Mohammad Rafique, Tapash Baisya, Manjural Islam.
