BATSMEN: Quniton de Kock 34 (20), AB de Villiers 19 (16)

The South Africans are off to a decent and good start in the chase as they have just a mere 100 runs as a target to chase down. Opening batsmen in the form of Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers are off to a decent start are ideally expected to chase it down in no time.

BATSMEN: Kamrul Islam Rabbi 1 (3)

That’s it! BCB XI have been bowled out for mere 99 in 18 overs. Thus, South Africans would have a mild task at hand to chase down a paltry total of just 100 runs from 20 overs. David Weise’s three wicket haul was impressive, followed by Kyle Abbott and Aaron Phangiso’s two-wicket haul as well. Imrul Kayes was the highest scorer with 29 runs.

BATSMEN: Mahmudul Hasan 5 (9), Abul Hasan 0 (0)

The BCB XI batsmen seem to be having a hard time facing the South African bowlers as the South Africnas seem to be enjoying their game and moment on the field. Four more quick wickets and BCB XI have been totally oushed on the backfoot after 15 overs as they still haven’t yet touched the 100-run mark.

OUT! Imrul Kayes c Miller b Wiese 29 (24), Mosaddek Hossain b Leie 0 (2), Shuvagata Hom c du Plessis b Wiese 18 (19), Shohag Gazi c Rossouw b Duminy 13 (8)



BATSMEN: Imryul Kayes 28 (22), Shuvagata Hom 9 (10)

Shaky start by the BCB XI batsmen as they have lost three quick wickets in the form of openers, Rony Talukdar and Anamul Haque, followed by Shykat Ali. Imrul Kayes seems to be batting pretty well, while Shuvagata Hom, who has just come in too looks good to play a big innings.

OUT! Rony Talukdar b Abbott 1 (8), Anamul Haque b Abbott 3 (7), Shykat Ali b Phangiso 5 (13)
