Bangladesh tour of South Africa, 2008/09 / Commentary

Bangladesh in South Africa Test Series - 2nd Test

South Africa v Bangladesh

South Africa won by an innings and 48 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

Hello and welcome to this second test with Bangladesh taking on South Africa. South Africa won the first Test convincingly.

The weather seems to be great for cricket, and we shoudn't have showers today.

The pitch for this Test does have quite a bit of grass on and it should be bouncy. Should be perfect for the South African bowling attack.

And news from the middle is that Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to bat first. Play is due to start at 10.30pm

Further news is that spin-bowler Paul Harris is still injured with a broken thumb and that opened the door for Monde Zondeki to play today just aiding the already quite strong seam-attack.
