Dhaka, Bangladesh : South Africa bowlers put in a disciplined bowling performance over Bangladesh in the second Twenty20 International as they secured a 31-run win on Tuesday.

That wrapped up the series 2-0 for the visitors at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Debutant leg-spinner Eddie Leie (3-16), fast bowler Kyle Abbott (3-20) and left arm spinner Aaron Phangiso (3-30) shared nine wickets to inflict the damage as Bangladesh was bowled out for 138 in 19.2 overs after South Africa racked up 169-4.

Opener Quinton de Kock was the highest scorer for the visitors with 44 while his fellow opener AB de Villiers smashed 40.

They gave the side a whirlwind start, adding 95 runs in just 10.3 overs after South Africa elected to bat first.

Bangladesh however hit back before the openers dented them completely with left arm spinner Arafat Sunny removing Kock who was more attacking than his illustrious colleague.

Kock smashed four fours and two sixes in his 31 balls knock.

Part time off-spinner Nasir Hossain thereafter dealt a double blow to the visitors having dismissed JP Duminy (6) and de Villiers in consecutive deliveries.

Villiers clobbered six boundaries in his 34 ball-40 before he was caught behind the wicket.

The spinners however stemmed the run flow, bowling exceptionally well before David Miller and Rilee Rossouw accelerated the run rate in the last two overs in which they scored 32 runs.

David Miller was unbeaten on 30 and Rilee Rossouw hit a quick six ball-19 not out, hitting one four and two sixes.

For Bangladesh, only Soumya Sarkar looked comfortable against a quality Proteas attack as he scored 37. He smashed six fours and one six in his 21 balls and gave the side a solid start along with Tamim Iqbal.

Bangladesh opening stand added 46 runs before Iqbal, who looked uneasy throughout his stay in the crease, was confused by Wayne Parnell to concede his wicket.

Aaron Phangiso and debutant Leie then joined the party and made regular inroads.

Bangladesh debutant Rony Talukdar stayed in the crease with utmost patience to help the side propel past 100 when it looked the hosts could be all out below 100 for the consecutive matches.

Talukdar made 21 while captain Mushfiqur Rahim scored 19.
