There might be a few people following the first one day international match of the series between Bangladesh and South Africa who could make believe that the home team would propel towards a ten wicket victory regarding the fact that the visitors accumulated 279 runs on the board after batting first, a total which was quite a good amount to defend but perhaps too shabby for batting pros like Amla and de Kock.

Merciless in approach, two South African openers Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock provided no chances whatsoever for the Bangladesh bowlers, a slender one was there to take which was unfortunately dropped by Nasir Hossain although that might not going to interfere in the victory of South Africa.
