Cape Town - Kagiso Rabada completed his second five-wicket haul of the match and his third 10-wicket haul overall as the Proteas beat Bangladesh by an innings and 254 runs in the second Sunfoil Test match that finished in three days at the Mangaung Oval on Sunday.

As it happened: SA v Bangladesh

It gave them a 2-0 series victory as they now prepare for the three-match ODI series starting at the Diamond Oval on Sunday.

For good measure Andile Phehlukwayo, playing in only his second Test match, returned career best figures of 3/36 to complement the maiden Test century that fellow series debutant Aiden Markram had made in the same match.

Rabada finished with match figures of 10/63 to take him past the mark of 100 Test wickets in only his 22nd Test match.

Only Vernon Philander and Dale Steyn among South Africans have reached this landmark quicker while he is joint third on the SA all-time list alongside Allan Donald and Hugh Tayfield.

He is also the leading wicket-taker in the current calendar year with 54 dismissals.

Both Bangladesh innings lasted fewer than 43 overs as they were unable to cope with the pace and bounce of the South African attack.

Rabada was named Man of the Match and Dean Elgar Man of the Series.
