Mashrafe Mortaza picked up the all important wicket of Hashim Amla in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Dhaka on Friday. Amla scored 14 from 18, as South Africa lost their first wicket. South Africa were 21 for 1 after 5.3 overs.

Earlier, Kagiso Rabada became only the second man in history to claim a hat-trick in ODI during the first match against Bangladesh in Dhaka on Friday.

Rabada bowled Tamim Iqbal in the third ball of his second over and then had Litton Das and Mahmudullah in the next two deliveries to complete the set, joining Bangladesh’s Taijul Islam, who achieved the feat against Zimbabwe at the same ground last December.

The 20-year-old pacer later added three wickets to his tally to finish with 6-16, the best ever haul by a debutant, bettering the record of West Indies’ Fidel Edwards, who claimed 6-22 against Zimbabwe in 2003.

Rabada is the first South African to bag six wickets on debut and only the second South African bowler to claim five wickets in his first one-day international match.

Rabada’s finished with 6 for 16, as Bangladesh were bowled out for 160.
