Cape Town - Led by an impressive top order battling display, the Proteas have amassed 369 for 6 in their 50 overs in the third ODI against Bangladesh in East London.

Proteas captain Faf du Plessis won the toss for the first time in the series and had no hesitation in opting to make first use of the Buffalo Park wicket. 

The Proteas made three changes to their lineup with Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram and Wiaan Mulder all coming into the team. 

They replaced Hashim Amla, JP Duminy and Dwaine Pretorius.

Bavuma opened the batting with Quinton de Kock and the two put on 119 for the first wicket before Bavuma, playing just his second ODI, miscued an attempt to hit Mehidy Hasan over the ropes only to be caught by Liton Das for 48 (47).

De Kock soon followed as he too was caught off the bowling of Hasan for 73 (68).

Debutant Markram showed why he is so highly regarded by smashing a quickfire 66 (60 balls) until he was unnecessarily run out. In the meantime, Du Plessis injured his leg and was forced to retire hurt on 91 (67).

In the final 10 overs, the Proteas lost regular wickets but most batsmen chipped in with Paarl hero AB de Villiers scoring 20, Farhaan Behardien 33 of 24 balls and Kagiso Rabada a quick-fire 23 off just 11 balls.

Only Andile Phehlukwayo (5) and Mulder (2) failed with the bat.
