1.45 pm There was expectation that this pitch will slow down and it did in the first innings, and will continue to do so. That means 278 is a pretty decent total, set up by Mushfiqur Rahim's 110 off 116 balls - the first century in international cricket for Bangladesh against South Africa. It was an innings of great poise and controlled acceleration. His placement, especially, was a standout, as was his ability to upset Imran Tahir, the no. 1 ranked bowler with sweeps and reverse sweeps. With AB de Villiers back, South Africa's batting is quite formidable. But they might just be tested tonight. Join us for the second innings soon.

SHAHRIAR: "Bangladesh finally come back frm their disappointed test performance and some respective total in ODI, though its not big i front of SA strong batting line but Bangladesh needed this come back in batting. "

Rabada to Mohammad Saifuddin, 1 wide, the wide yorker goes awfully wrong for Rabada, and it catches in the breeze as well to wander way past the guideline

Kapil Baldawa: "300 was bare minimum considering BD lack of bowling depth and SA strong batting. 270 would be challenging if they get Amla and QDK some how. Won't be easy though"
