Tryon stars for Proteas in win over Bangladesh
A quickfire 65 off 42 balls from Chloe Tryon helped lift the Proteas Women to a 106 run win over Bangladesh in the first One Day International.
South Africa won the toss and opted to bat first posting an imposing 270/9 in their fifty overs at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom.
Lizelle Lee (54) gave the Proteas an excellent start putting on 67 for the first wicket with Laura Wolvaardt (26).
There were handy middle order contributions from Mignon Du Preez (26) and Dane van Niekerk (44) before Tryon’s fireworks pushed the Proteas on to a big score.
Nahida Akter (2/22) ended as the pick of the Bangladesh bowlers accouting for the wickets of Wolvaardt and Du Preez and putting the brakes on the SA Women’s early momentum until the allrounder strode out in the mood for destruction.

The Bangladesh chase never really got off the ground with the Proteas changing up the bowling often, using an incredible nine bowlers.
Opener Sanjida Islam (35) and number three Fargana Hoque (69*) where the only batsmen to get into double figures for the tourists.
The skipper Van Niekerk gutted the Bangladesh middle order ending with figures of 3 for 23 from her ten overs taking the wickets of Sanjida, opposing skipper Rumana Ahmed (3) and Nigar Sultana (3).
Tryon bagged two wickets to go with her fifty and would earn the player of the match award.
