Johannesburg - South Africa A beat Bangladesh A by six wickets to take a 2-1 lead in their five-match ODI series at Senwes Park on Wednesday.

The final match will be played at Willowmoore Park on Friday. Bangladesh, batting first, stumbled to 88 for six but recovered with the efforts of Nadif Chowdhury (64 off 75 balls with 6 fours and a six) and Nasir Hossain (66 off 60 balls with 11 fours).

The pair put on 103 for the seventh wicket in 15 overs with Hossain dismissed off the last ball of the 50th over as Bangladesh reached a total of 218/8. Bangladesh looked well in the game when they had South Africa three down for 74.

South Africa fought back with two strong partnerships.

The fourth wicket partnership of 78 between Dean Elgar (41) and Imraan Khan (58*) steadied the run chase, before Khan and Vaughn van Jaarsveld (42*) saw the side home with an unbroken partnership of 69. They reached 221 for four and victory in 43.2 overs.
