South Africa down 1st in ODI tiebreaker against Bangladesh

CENTURION, South Africa (AP) — South Africa will be the first to bat in the decisive Third Day International against Bangladesh on Wednesday.

Bangladesh still have a chance to clinch the series 2-1 for their first victory in South Africa.

South Africa captain Temba Bavuma is fit for the final game at SuperSport Park after injuring his finger in a series win for the home side on Sunday.

However, the versatile Wayne Parnell is out after sustaining a leg injury in the same game. He was replaced by Dwaine Pretorius but South Africa‘s roster is otherwise unchanged.

Bangladesh retained the same 11 that played in the first and second games. Bangladesh beat South Africa in South Africa for the first time in the opening ODI. South Africa won the second by seven wickets.
