Watch Bangladesh vs South Africa 1st Test Day 2 Highlights today, Ban vs SA day 2 highlights, SA vs Ban test match highlights. A great first day for South Africa at their home ground – the debutant Markram falling just three runs short of a hundred while Dean Elgar remains unbeaten at the crease currently at 128. Bangladesh had won the toss and chose to field first, which seems to be a bad decision. Also the absence of experienced Shakib al Hasan, who always provided his side with breakthroughs in the past, might be another factor contributing towards the weakness of Bangladesh.

This is what great teams do – they provide their side with incredible foundations to bat on. The 196-run opening partnership between Elgar and Markram left the Tigers wondering whether it was the right decision for them to bowl. Hashim Amla as usual played a patient knock and further increased the score, remaining unbeaten on 68 at stumps day 1. The opener debutant Markram said after stumps day 1 that he was more than happy to pile up the 97 runs and being not able to make a hundred did not hurt him. He mentioned the friendship between him and Elgar as well.

Bangladesh played a defensive innings against a much attacking opponent. The South African batsmen hit boundaries every now and then, each playing an almost perfect innings. It was Bangladeshi bowling which was under consideration but the bowlers did not yield too much fruit for their side. There was inconsistency between the pacers and line and length problems. Mustafizur Rahim bowled better than the others but he was unable to find wickets as well.
