Bangladesh A 346 (Shamsur 84, Noor 49, van Zyl 4-37) v South Africa A
Scorecard

The first day of the first unofficial Test between Bangladesh A and South Africa A ended with honours even. Medium-pacer Stiaan van Zyl grabbed four wickets and opener Shamsur Rahman struck 84, as Bangladesh were bowled out for 346.

However, Bangladesh will rue the fact that their batsmen, barring Shamsur, did not go on to get bigger scores despite getting starts. Shahriar Nafees made 45, Nazimuddin contributed 48, Farhad Hossain chipped in with 38 and, down the order, Noor Hussain helped Bangladesh reach 346 by striking six fours and two sixes in his 49.

van Zyl was supported by Johan van der Wath and Dean Elgar, who grabbed two wickets each.
