WITH the series in the bag already, the  Protea Women will be going into their match against Bangladesh on Friday full of confidence.

The fourth match in the five match series will once again be played at the Diamond Oval.

The South African team will be hoping to keep up the pressure and intensify their efforts to make a clean sweep in the series.

The majority of the players in the squad have performed extremely well making it somewhat of a difficult task to select the strongest team, which is a very healthy situation. The Proteas won their first and second ODIs in Potchefstroom earlier, by 106 runs and 9 wickets respectively.

They beat the Bangladeshis on Wednesday in Kimberley, also by 9 wickets after bundling them out for a meagre 71 runs and then knocking off the target of 72 runs, losing one wicket in the process with 214 balls to spare.

Their final ODI fixture in the series will be in Bloemfontein on Monday, before returning to the Diamond Oval  on Thursday May 17 for the first of two T20 matches.

The match on Friday starts at 9.45 am and entrance is free.
