South Africa Legends Win – Road Safety World Series: South Africa Legends entered the semifinals of the Road Safety World Series T20 by beating Bangladesh Legends by 10 wickets here.

Openers Andrew Puttick (84 not out off 54 balls; 9×4, 1×6) and Morne van Wyk (69 not out off 62 balls; 9×4) slammed unbeaten half centuries as South Africa Legends chased down the 161-run target in 19.2 overs late on Monday.

The win helped the South Africans finish third with 16 points after India (20 points) and Sri Lanka (20 points).

Earlier, put in to bat, Bangladesh Legends displayed a much-improved batting performance before South Africa Legends bowlers triggered a collapse.

The Mohammed Rafique-led side were restricted to 160 for 9 in 20 overs with South Africa Legends offie Thandi Tshabalala and pacer Makhaya Ntini taking two wickets each.

Nazimuddin provided a decent start with a 33-ball 32 with five fours and a six while Aftab Ahmed (39; 1×4, 3×6) and Hannan Sarkar (36; 2×4, 1×6) were the other main contributors.

Nazimuddin, however, was dismissed by Tshabalala while Ahmed and Sarkar were sent back by Zander de Bruyn and seamer Garnett Krugger.

Once Sarkar was dismissed at the team score of 130, Bangladesh lost six wickets for 30 runs.

Brief Scores:

Bangladesh Legends: 160/9 in 20 overs (Nazimuddin 32, Aftab Ahmed 39, Hannan Sarkar 36; Makhaya Ntini 2/26, Thandi Tshabalala 2/33) lost to South Africa Legends 161/0 in 19.2 overs (Andrew Puttick 84 not out, Morne van Wyk 69 not out) by 10 wickets.

Earlier South Africa Legends won the toss and opted to field.

Road Safety World Series Points Table Status: Bangladesh have already been knocked out of the competition but a win will confirm third place for South Africa, which would mean they will play the semi-final against India and not table-toppers Sri Lanka. A loss will interest England and West Indies as both have a chance of claiming third place pushing South Africa to fourth.
