South Africa v Bangladesh: AB de Villiers, Shakib Al Hasan return for first ODI

South Africa v Bangladesh: AB de Villiers, Shakib Al Hasan return for first ODI

South Africa were dominant in the two recent Tests between the sides and will be hoping to display similar control in the three-match one-day series.

All-rounder Shakib is back to strengthen the tourists having asked to be rested for the Test series and while he top-scored with 68, he was unable to prevent Bangladesh from falling to a six-wicket defeat to an invitational XI, in Bloemfontein, on Thursday.

De Villiers was part of that XI, as was JP Duminy, who is also back in contention for the Proteas, but Faf du Plessis will lead the lead in Kimberley having replaced De Villiers as captain.
