The Proteas Women’s opening bowlers devastated Bangladesh in the third ODI of their five match series in Kimberley on Wednesday.

Marizanne Kapp and Ayabonga Khaka did the damage up front with the former sending Sanjida Islam (1) and Fargana Hoque (0) packing in the third over having put the tourists in to bat.

Bangladesh keeper Nigar Sultana (33*) played a lone hand for the tourists who have struggled with bat in hand so far.

The Proteas were again keen to spread the bowling out using seven bowlers to bowl the 36.5 overs it took to knock Bangladesh over for 71.


Khaka was the pick of the bowlers for the second match in a row narrowly missing out on outdoing her career best of 3/13 achieved over the weekend as she returned figures of 3/16.

The hosts handed a debut to Zintle Mali (1/6) who was rewarded for a miserly spell with the wicket of Jannatul Ferdus (1).

In response Lizelle Lee made quick work of the total smashing an unbeaten 44 while Andrie Steyn (12) was the only Protea to lose her wicket.

Nahida Akter (1/19) ended as the pick of the Bangladesh bowlers.

Lee smashed five fours and a six in her 51 ball stay at the crease and ensured yet another early finish for the ladies in green.
