South Africa completed a whitewash against Bangladesh across all formats. Bangladesh were thrashed in all three formats by South Africa. This was first such instance out of 17 when a team has visited South Africa and failed to win a single game across all formats.

The last T20 was played in Potchefstroom where South Africa piled up a mammoth total of 224 runs. Hashim Amla and David Miller played exceptionally well. The former scoring 85 off 51 deliveries, while the later scored 101 off just 36 balls. In doing so, David Miller managed to score the fastest T20i century.

Hashim Amla played exceptionally and set the tone with his 85 runs. He was all set for a century but got out to a slog in 17th over. David Miller, who was 42 off 20 deliveries at that time, took the charge and went on to score 58 runs in last 15 balls which took him to a century. During the carnage, he scored 5 consecutive sixes off Saifuddin . He looked all set to join Yuvraj Singh and Herchelle Gibbs in the league of 6 consecutive six hitters, but he failed to do so as he managed a single on last ball.

In doing so he also became the 5th South African player to score 1000 T20i runs. This was his 3rd T20 century and 2nd at home.
