Bangladesh vs South Africa 2015, 1st ODI at Dhaka: Imran Tahir removes Shakib Al Hasan

Bangladesh lost Shakib Al Hasan as he was trapped leg before by Imran Tahir in the first ODI match at Dhaka on Friday. Few overs earlier, Bangladesh lost another wicket as Chris Morris dismissed Sabbir Rahman. Sabbir was clean bowled by Morris, as Bangladesh lost their sixth wicket. Bangladesh were 120 for the loss of seven wickets after 25.1 overs.

Earlier, JP Duminy removed Mushfiqur Rahim as Imran Tahir caught the wicketkeeper-batsman Shakib Al Hasan and Rahim were involved in a 53 runs partnership for the fifth wicket partnership. Shakib and Rahim steadied the Bangladesh innings after their top-order stumbled, owing to Kagiso Rabada’s amazing spell.

Earlier, Rabada destroyed the Bangladesh top-order as he became the second bowler to take ODI hat-trick on debut. Tamim went for a duck despite playing 13 balls and Litton Das went for a golden duck. Rabada was on hat-trick as Mahmudullah walked out to bat. However, he was trapped leg before and Mahmudullah had to walk back. He is the second bowler to complete hat-trick on ODI debut. Taijul Islam was the other cricketer to achieve such a feat. Rabada picked his fourth ODI wicket on debut as he removed Bangladesh’s opener Soumya Sarkar.

Bangladesh won toss and elected to bat as the start of the match was delayed by rain. The match was curtailed to 40 overs per side.
