South Africa wrapped up the ODI Series with a 200-run victory over Bangladesh in the final match at Buffalo Park in East London on Sunday. The 3-0 series victory gives them the No. 1 ICC ranking in this format for the time being.

Today’s victory was marred by the lower back injury suffered by captain Faf du Plessis, who was unbeaten on 91 at the time (67 balls, 10 fours and a six), having shared a third wicket record partnership against Bangladesh of 151 with new cap Aiden Markram.

Faf du Plessis has been withdrawn from the upcoming KFC T20 International series against Bangladesh due to injury.  Du Plessis retired hurt on 91 in the third ODI against Bangladesh at Buffalo Park in East London on Sunday, and was unable to take further part in the match.

Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee explained: “Faf sustained an acute left lumbar (lower-back) strain while batting and immediately left the field in extreme discomfort.  He will return back to Cape Town overnight for investigation and further management. He has been withdrawn from the upcoming T20I series against Bangladesh starting in Bloemfontein on Thursday.”

JP Duminy will captain the T20 squad in Du Plessis’ absence and all-rounder, Dwaine Pretorius, has been named as the replacement player.


JP Duminy says the Proteas are determined to preserve their unbeaten record in the final One-Day International (ODI) against Bangladesh at Buffalo Park in East London on Sunday. The Proteas lead the three-match series 2-0 after a convincing 104-run win in Paarl on Wednesday, and have set their sights on achieving a 3-0 series clean-sweep.

Duminy believes the squad remains motivated towards achieving the goals set prior to the series, despite the one-sided nature of the matches so far. He has been impressed by the high standards that have been set and met throughout the series, and expects another high-quality performance to cap off the series.
