Live: Bangladesh on backfoot after second session

Bangladesh were able to produce a single breakthrough taking the wicket of Aiden Markram, credit goes to some wonderful fielding effort by Sabbir Rahman and Mehedi Hasan who ripped off debutant Markram at the score of 97 runs, just three runs away from what could be a glorious ton in the inaugural match of his international career.

On the end, Dean Elgar blasted a hundred and unbeaten scoring 106 playing 189 deliveries. He hit 7 fours and 2 sixes.

In the one down position, Hashim Amla accompanied Elgar in the show. He is batting at 7.

The day has been going rough for the visitors since they won the toss in the morning and decided to bowl first. The rather placid wicket at the Senwes Park procured no assistance for the bowlers.

Mushfiqur Rahim tried six bowlers so far including occasional bowler Mahmudullah Riyad but every of them failed to bring any success for the team.

Playing 59 over of the match, South Africa has gathered 214 runs for the loss of a single wicket. 1 of 1
