The home side ended their allotted 20 overs on 224 for 4 after they were sent in by Bangladesh.

Amla (85 off 51 balls), who was without his regular opening partner Quinton de Kock, ensured South Africa ticked along at a decent rate despite a fairly poor start that saw them lose Mangaliso Mosehle (5), JP Duminy (4) and AB de Villiers (20) within the first 10 overs. 

Once he fell, however, David Miller (101* off 36 balls, 7x4, 9x6) took over.

He smashed the unfortunate Mohammad Saifuddin for 31 runs in the 19th over of the innings including five 6's in a row as the Proteas plundered 61 runs from the final three overs.

He registered his ton, the fastest ever in T20 international cricket, in the final over. 

Farhaan Behardien ended on 6* in a partnership worth 67 off just 21 balls.
