Bangladesh Women’s cricket team suffered their four successive loss against hosts South Africa in the five-match ODI series after a 154-run defeat at Diamond Oval, Kimberley on Friday.

Shabnim Ismail (2/8), Raisibe Ntozakhe (2/10) and Sune Luus (2/12) demolished more than half strength of Bangladesh, sharing six wickets for SA Women.

Batting first after winning the toss, SA Women scored 230 for 7 in 50 overs spurred by two half centuries by opener Lizelle Lee (70 off 102b; 9×4) and skipper Chloe Tryon (60 off 42b; 6×4; 2×6).
