In the very next over of the innings, Rossouw slammed back-to-back one four and a six off Hasan Mahmud, gathering 11 runs in an over.
The rains returned to pause the play after 5.3 overs, with South Africa at 60/1. After 22 minutes of pause because of rain, the game was resumed. Both batters kept gathering single at regular intervals while smashing boundaries to keep the moumentum in their team’s favour.

While smashing the Bangladesh bowlers all around the ground Rossouw brought up his half-century in 30 deliveries. After 10 overs of the play, South Africa’s score read 91/1.
Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan then came to bowl but could not do much to stop the Rossouw carnage as the Proteas’ batter smashed him for 21 runs with back-to-back two sixes and one four.
Bangladesh were penalised for 5 runs after their wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan moved behind when Shakib Al Hasan was in the delivery stride.
