    Good Session For Bangladesh

    81 runs came in the first session on Day 2 and South Africa lost 4 wickets in the process. Bangladesh would be happy with their bowling performance. Had there not been a 53-run stand between Temba Bavuma (93) and Keshav Maharaj (19) for the seventh wicket, the scorecard would have looked more inclined towards the visitors.

    Lunch Break

    It’s time for the lunch break on the second day of the ongoing first Test between South Africa and Bangladesh. Simon Harmer is unbeaten on 8 and Lizaad Williams is 6 not out.

    Confusion! Confusion!

    102.5 – Ebadot Hossain caught Lizaad Williams plumb in front of the stumps and umpire Marais Erasmus also raised his finger. Williams decided to review and third umpire announced it out despite the ball pitching outside leg stump. The decision-maker confused Williams as a right-handed batter. However, Erasmus guided the TV umpire to reconsider his decision as the batsman was lefty. Eventually, Williams survived.

    Another Wicket

    Kehshav Maharaj is gone and Bangladesh are back in the game in just two balls. Ebadot Hossain cleaned up South Africa’s remaining hope in batting with a good inswinger.

    SA 298/8 (98.1)

    It’s an anti-climax for Temba Bavuma. He has been dimissed on 93, just seven short of what could have been his second Test ton. It was a well-crafted innings and a three-figure mark would have done real justice to it.

    Mehidy Hasan bowled an off-break and the ball hit Bavuma’s pad on the leg side before getting onto the stumps.

    SA 298/7 (98)

    Road To Recovery

    After losing two back-to-back wickets early on the day, South Africa have done a decent job in the follow up. Temba Bavuma (85 not out) is looking in great touch, while Keshav Maharaj (6 not out) is also looking positive. The two have added 32 runs for the seventh wicket so far.

    SA 276/6 (94)

    SA Cross 250

    Temba Bavuma is certainly leading South Africa. The right-hander has been in flow on Day 2 and his partnership di lui with Keshav Maharaj will turn vital for the hosts. SA 254/6 (88)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 1:59 PM

    Khaled Strikes

    The second new ball has done the trick for Bangladesh. Khaled Ahmed strikes twice in two balls. He traps Kyle Verreynne first before dismissing

    for a first-ball duck. SA 245/6

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 1:42 PM

    Cautious Start

    Temba Bavuma and Kyle Verreynne start on a cautious note. The duo are keeping it simple and haven’t looked tried any extra shots so far. The second new ball is available and Bangladesh have taken it immediately. SA 236/4 (80)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 1:28 PM

    Pitch Report

    With the second new ball due in three overs, the seamers will get help from the Day 2 pitch. The bounce will remain good and the pitch could be on the faster side today.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 12:23 PM

    Fort Bavuma

    Temba Bavuma will be the key man for South Africa on Friday. Bavuma steadied South Africa with 53 not out before bad light ended play early on Day 1. Bavuma was supported by Kyle Verreynne (27 not out) and their unbroken 53-run stand took South Africa safely to stumps.

    The Lure of IPL

    The Proteas are without batsmen Aiden Markram and Rassie van der Dussen, pace bowlers Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen, and allrounder Dwaine Pretorius, who all opted to play in the IPL instead of the two-test series against Bangladesh.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 12:22 PM

    Watch Out For Mehidy

    Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s off-spin could be a key factor at Kingsmead. He was the pick of the bowlers (1 for 57 in 26 overs) and also ran out Keegan Petersen brilliantly.
