Bangladesh lose opener Tamim to thigh injury

Faf du Plessis and Dean Elgar said they preffered five-day Tests

When Elgar reached 16, he became the first bowler to score 1000 Test runs for the year, but he was only getting started. The only solace the visiting side can take is that South Africa have a depleted pace attack, with Morne Morkel joining Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Chris Morris on the sidelines.

"I think this is an opportunity for the others in the squad".

12 - Number of Test matches Keshav Maharaj needed to complete 50 Test wickets which is the 3rd fewest for a South African to reach 50 Test wickets since their readmission to cricket in 1992.

Morkel left the field after bowling 5.2 overs on Sunday's fourth day of play, during which he took the first two of three Bangladesh wickets which fell before the close. Bangladesh, on the other hand, made four changes: they drafted in Soumya Sarkar for the injured Tamim Iqbal, while Taijul Islam, Rubel Hossain and Subashis Roy were added to bolster the weakened team. "Two weeks ago, the wicket was quite flat and there wasn't much assistance but it will be different". Former Proteas fast bowler Marchant de Lange was his partner in crime as the pair overcame the generally placid nature of the Mangaung Oval. The Knights won both games handsomely.




Probably the team Bangladesh has a good chance of transferring their home improvements to overseas but the team needs to be the concern for themselves little more. It's about being aggressive and being patient.

Andile Phehlukwayo made his debut in the first Test, Duanne Olivier has just four Test caps, Parnell has accumulated five, while Paterson would be making his Test bow should he be selected. "Some feel that by playing some strokes early, they can settle down".

As they face the prospect of a green pitch, the pressure will certainly be increased on Bangladesh, particularly after experienced batsman Tamim Iqbal was ruled out of the match following a recurrence of a thigh injury.
