Bangladesh all out for 320, South Africa secure 176-run lead

Bangladesh have been bowled out for 320 runs in the first innings of the first Test against South Africa at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on Saturday.


South Africa have startted the second innings with a lead of 176 runs.


Bangladesh avoided the follow on but did not last long after that. They had some good contributions but none of them has served the purpose in the long haul.

South Africa needed less than 20 deliveries to take the final two wickets of the visitors.


It was a promising innings from Bangladesh but none of them were decisive enough. South Africa clearly hold the cards now and they will be looking to strengthen their position from here.


Earlier, Tamim Iqbal (22) and Mominul (28) start the third day’s play hoping for a better total as Bangladesh were trailing by 369 runs. But Tamim depart early keeping Bangladesh in to risk.


South Africa made 496 for three before declaring during the tea break on day 2.


Dean Elgar was dismissed for 199 to provide a rare moment of respite for Bangladesh as South Africa continued to pile on the runs.


Opening batsman Elgar and Hashim Amla (137) put on 215 for the second wicket as South Africa again gave Bangladesh cause to regret their decision to send the hosts in to bat.
