Bangladesh confirmed their rise as a major force in 50 overs cricket when they thrashed the Castle Lager Proteas by 9 wickets in the third One-Day International at Chittagong on Wednesday to claim a 2-1 series victory. It was their first ever series victory over the Proteas in any format. Bangladesh have now won four home series in a row against Zimbabwe, Pakistan, India and now South Africa, winning 12 out of 14 ODIs in the process. In addition, they beat England at the ICC World Cup earlier this year and took New Zealand right down to the wire in the same tournament. The fact that they beat South Africa by 7 wickets in one match and by 9 wickets in the next shows just how dominant they have been in the latter part of this series. Proteas will adapt to conditions, feels Imran Tahir
