Next up, the two countries will contest a three-game one-day series from July 10 in Dhaka.
Their bowling attack contained more firepower than Bangladesh could handle and the Proteas shot out the hosts for 96 inside 19 overs to cruise to an easy victory.
Their T-20 skipper Faf du Plesis won the toss and took same decision as previous game which apparently paid off well. It required a bit of rebuilding from Faf du Plessis and David Miller before Miller and Rilee Rossouw accelerated at the end to set a competitive total.
De Kock’s wicket was Bangladesh’s first breakthrough in the 11th over. Arafat Sunny took his wicket to give the side an initial jolt. I won’t say fielding is a serious issue but when you play against a unit of that level, you have to push yourself.

The visitors had left out Beuran Hendricks, Chris Morris and Eddie Leie for the first T20 and it is likely they will remain benched, unless South Africa have plans to hand the young legspinner Leie a T20 debut.
Inspired by de Villiers’ wicket in just the first over, Bangladesh came up with a spirited effort, but was foiled by Du Plessis.
Sarkar and opener Tamim Iqbal gave Bangladesh, who lost the first match by 52 runs on Sunday, hope with a quickfire opening stand of 46 but the team kept losing wickets from there on.
Spinner Arafat Sunny departed the Proteas opening pair grabbing Quinton de Kock who was caught by Sabbir Rahman after scoring 44 runs off 31 balls with four fours and two sixes.
All three dismissals came at crucial stages in their 170-run chase against South Africa. Extremely tough conditions to beat Bangladesh 2-0 like that.
Shakib Al Hasan was dismissed cheaply for 8 by Phangiso.
Du Plessis said he was happy to kick off the Bangladesh tour with Twenty20 matches that mark the start of a long season for South Africa leading up to ICC World Twenty20 in India in March 2016. Rossouw smashed an unbeaten 31 from 21 balls, including two fours and two sixes, and the duo added 58 from the last 40 balls to lift South Africa to a competitive total on what was a tough wicket to score on.
