Gibbs denied as SA win
Khaled Mashud & Herschelle Gibbs
Second one-day international, Benoni: South Africa 155-0 (20.2 overs) beat Bangladesh 154-9 by 10 wickets

Herschelle Gibbs was denied a record fourth consecutive one-day international century by a wide as South Africa beat Bangladesh by 10 wickets and wrapped up the series at Benoni.

The South African opener looked certain to reach the milestone until Alak Kapali bowled down the leg side and the ball scuttled to the boundary for four extras.

The wide meant Gibbs, unbeaten on 96, had to score a boundary to reach three figures with the scores tied in the second match of the series.

Makhaya Ntini
Ntini picked up three wickets
But he chose to run a single to seal the match with the best part of 30 overs to go, leaving him high and dry on 97.

Gibbs, who was dropped on 36, smashed 19 boundaries in his 66 ball innings, and was backed up by Graeme Smith who scored 48.

Earlier, Makhaya Ntini took three wickets as Bangladesh struggled to 154-9.

The paceman had Hannan Sarkar edging a delivery to wicketkeeper Mark Boucher and clean bowled Al Sahariar for a duck four balls later to take two wickets in his sixth over.

Bangladesh were reduced to 74-6 with Lance Klusener bagging a brace of wickets and Allan Donald strking to remove Sanwar Hossain.

Tusher Imran hit five stylish boundaries before chasing and edging a wide Dale Benkenstein delivery to Boucher.

Captain Khaled Mashud put on 29 with Khaled Mahmud to take Bangladesh past the 100 mark.

Ntini returned to bowl Mashud to end with figures of 3-28 and Pollock took the wicket of Mahmud soon afterwards.

Tapash and Monjural then teamed up to launch some extraordinary strokes in an exciting partnership.

Tapash smeared Donald for six and slogged four fours, some of them going in the opposite direction than intended, making 35.

Monjural was run out for 13 as Donald bowled a maiden last over.
