South Africa registered its lowest ever total in T20 World Cup history during the match against Bangladesh at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Monday.

South Africa scored 113 for six in the first innings. Its lowest total previously was 116 for nine against India in the 2007 edition of the tournament.

The Proteas were restricted to 25 for four inside the PowerPlay with Tanzim Hasan Sakib picking three wickets and Taskin Ahmed scalping one. David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen then rebuilt the innings with a 79-run partnership for the fifth wicket that helped South Africa put up a fighting total on a tricky pitch.

An inspired bowling performance then helped South Africa pull off a miraculous four-run win, with Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj picking seven wickets between them.

The win also helped South Africa register the lowest successful defence of a total. On Sunday, India had equalled the record of the lowest score defended in T20 World Cup history when it pulled off a six-run win against Pakistan after scoring just 119.

On Monday, South Africa went past that record playing at the same venue.
