  2. 'Looking back, I wouldn't have bowled first'

    South Africa captain Faf du Plessis: "Obviously today didn't go according to plan. Lungi Ngidi got injured, which is not ideal, but even with that 330 was a little over-par.

    "Everyone chipped in with the bat but again it was not enough.

    "Looking back on it I wouldn't have bowled first. But the thinking was speaking to all the local guys who said there would be more pace and bounce in it. Even then if they do get runs on the board they can squeeze you and that's what happened today."

    Shakib batting at three is a great move. He showed all his experience and that partnership with Mushfiqur was crucial. They batted sensibly and hit boundaries when they had to. It allowed Bangladesh to be very attacking at the end.

    The Bangladesh team of even four years ago might have crumpled to 270-280.

    But Mahmudullah gave them the impetus to get to 330. That was really impressive stuff.

    Faf du Plessis has just admitted he'd change his mind at the toss.

    Ben Wire: Great Bangladeshi bowling, but South African running between the wickets was woeful; by contrast the Bangladeshi fielding was keen and aggressive. Great stuff to watch.

    South Africa will have looked at this as a must-win game.

    The toss played a part but I don't have a massive problem with South Africa electing to bowl first. It's all about how the teams play from that point on and Bangladesh out-performed South Africa in all areas.

  9. 'The job has just started'

    Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan: "It will be one of our top wins. We have done some upsets at World Cups but we want to prove something at this tournament. This is the way we wanted to start and it can't get better than that.

    "We had the belief, this is the start we needed and now we need to keep up this momentum. The job has just started.

    "We know the conditions here are good for batting but we had to adjust.

    "It was a good contribution from myself and Mushfiqur, we needed to hold the innings together and we did that perfectly.

    "New Zealand are next and they are a great team and have done really well so we can take confidence from this game but can't take our foot off the pedal."

    Bangladesh are here to prove a point or two. They can seriously dent the hopes of some of the big names here.

    People should not focus on how poor South Africa have been.

    Bangladesh deserve everything they got here.

    There are just a load of individuals out there in a South African shirt. Previous sides under Graeme Smith and even under Faf du Plessis looked more like a team that knew what they had to do.

    Today they have been right off their game.

    What a performance from Bangladesh. Their spinners have been outstanding and never let South Africa get ahead of the rate.
