Cape Town - Proteas ODI captain Hashim Amla says they struggled with the conditions after a 2-1 series defeat to Bangladesh.

Bangladesh thrashed the Proteas by 9 wickets in the third ODI at Chittagong on Wednesday to claim a 2-1 series victory.

It was their first ever series victory over the Proteas in any format.

Bangladesh have now won four home series in a row against Zimbabwe, Pakistan, India and now South Africa, winning 12 out of 14 ODIs in the process. In addition, they beat England at the Cricket World Cup earlier this year and took New Zealand right down to the wire in the same tournament.

“Very disappointing, indeed. We misjudged the conditions but credit to Bangladesh," Amla said in a pitch-side televised interview.

"We were rusty and we haven't played good cricket,”

He was confident though that they would rebound in the two-Test series starting next Tuesday.

“We have got a good idea of what the wickets would be. Test cricket is a different ball game. We will regroup and come back in the Tests. The Test guys have flown in."
