|Ground:||Buffalo Park, East London|
|Scorecard:||South Africa v Bangladesh|
|Event:||Bangladesh in South Africa 2008/09|
In the midst of India taking on the now vulnerable Australia and Pakistani team finally setting foot on a cricket field and a rebel league celebrating its second anniversary since inception another bilateral series was being played quietly in the African continent between South Africa and Bangladesh. The series has been sealed in the favour of Proteas and they will be wanting and not hoping to clean sweep the series to gain the much talked factor called momentum to go into the Test series against the same opposition in around one week time. More importantly the eyes of the South African team would be on their next assignment, which will be in the Southern Hemisphere of the Australian continent where they feel have a realistic chance of securing a rare series win in Australia. Bangladesh save for some period of time in the first ODI has looked woefully out of depth against a much more clinical, formidable and more importantly professional opposition in South Africa.
