Ebadot Hossain29108622.9613813100
57.2 to RD Rickelton, Rickelton's pull is top-edged to mid-on. It was a length ball outside off and he tried to pull it in front of square. Maybe he was ruffled by being beaten off the last ball, but it was a bit hard to hit given the line and a bit of extra bounce complicated matters. It was taken by the fielder who backtracked with a step or two, swirled in either directions, settled with eyes on the ball and took it with his palms to his right. 180/4
98.1 to KA Maharaj, one brings two. Ebadot with the salute. Which means he has taken a wicket. Full and seams back in through the bat and pad gap, Maharaj was late on the forward defence, the ball sneaks through and hits the stumps. Bangladesh's day just got better. 298/8
Khaled Ahmed2539243.6811615012
33.2 to D Elgar, Good length ball explodes, finds the edge and is taken by the keeper! The extra bounce surprised the batter as he grunted and tried to pull out of the defence to cover, to which he was getting into position for. But he was too late as the ball took the glove and ballooned into the diving keeper. There was a wait to confirm if the catch was clean and Elgar was almost completely out of the playing field when the umpire called it out.. 113/1
82.2 to K Verreynne, Given out LBW but Verreynne reviews. This looks plumb. If there is no bat. No bat as UltraEdge proves. Hit on the kneeroll and it's three reds. Gone. The nip-backer, from a good length, it jags back appreciably and traps Verreynne on the back foot right in front. Once he missed that, he was dead. Early wicket for Bangladesh on day 2. 245/5
82.3 to PWA Mulder, Mulder gets a golden duck. Two in two for Khaled. Hasan Joy at gully takes a sharp catch to his left as it was going quickly. Good length outside off, Mulder punches and edges it to the left of gully, Joy snaffles it sharply and suddenly Khaled is on a hat-trick. He is jumping in delight and he has to thank Joy for that was a good catch. Ebadot is seen giving Khaled some advice.. 245/6
108.6 to LB Williams, Hasan Joy with another stunner today at gully. Short of a length outside off, Williams punches in the air and it's dying to Joy's right, he keeps his eyes and dives to catch it one-handed. That's two top catches in the gully from Joy. Fourth for Khaled. 332/9
Mehidy Hasan Miraz4089432.351859100
34.1 to SJ Erwee, Soft, soft dismissal as Erwee drags one on to the stumps. It was full, flighted and outside off, Erwee tried to slash at it but was standing a bit too far away and got an underedge to the stumps. Bangladesh get a bonus and are stoked!. 117/2
97.6 to T Bavuma, heartbreak for Bavuma and the South Africans watching on. Sharp offbreak fizzing in after pitching, on middle, Bavuma on seeing the length rocks back to cut, but is defeated by the excessive turn, tries to adjust and chop but the ball misses the inside-edge and falls on the leg-stump. Prodigious turn and Bavuma is completely done. The dressing room stands up to clap Bavuma who falls in the nineties. Still does not get his 2nd Test hundred. 298/7
120.6 to D Olivier, The back of a good length ball pitches outside off, spins in for the impact to be around leg and it's clipping leg-stump so the on-field decision remains. 367/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Duanne Olivier1553612.40724000
114.6 to Khaled Ahmed, Ultra-Edge shows a spike with the ball next to the glove. Khaled's eyes were closed as he tried to half-fend at it. He survived for five balls but couldn't get through.. 294/9
Lizaad Williams18.535432.86877003
51.1 to Taskin Ahmed, maiden Test wicket for Lizaad Williams. He is being congratulated by his team-mates. Short of a length outside off, Taskin punches to gully and the ball's flying to Mulder's right, he takes it on the second attempt after the ball pops up behind him. Sharp catch and South Africa dismiss the nightwatchman early. 101/5
79.2 to Liton Das, Beats the inside edge, knocks over off after taking the inside edge and going onto the back pad. It was on a back of a good length and Litton tried to play the line of the ball but the severe movement was just enough to make contact with all articles along the way, including, most importantly, the stumps. Effervescent celebrations from the bowler after having the batter dropped earlier on.. 183/6
115.5 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, end of Joy and end of the Bangladesh innings. He deserved to carry his bat through for the way he has played. A couple of South Africans pat him on the back while he gets a standing ovation from his own camp. Length ball angling in, too close to cut, but Joy backs away slightly and plays the shot but edges it to the lone slip. Safely taken and South Africa have a lead of 69. 298/10
Simon Harmer401210342.571989500
10.3 to Shadman Islam, Knocks middle-stump. Good length ball keeps low and the grubber was in line, and the bat could not come down in time and Shadman, who was playing on the backfoot is dismissed much to the delight of the South Africans. 25/1
37.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Peach turns away and takes the top of off! It pitched on a good length on middle, beats the outside edge that was following the ball but it turned away further and this would have been an umpire's call on the stumps had it been an LBW review. Probably why the celebrations were enthusiastic Najmul played well and has to go knowing he could not have done much there.. 80/2
39.3 to Mominul Haque, One-hander taken by silly mid-off with a dive to his left! It was a full ball on leg, it was loopy too and the batter tried to turn it ever so slightly at best. The stride down the pitch was good too but it took the edge into pad and the fielder was ever so ready to pull off a beaut of a catch and follow it with a cheerful celebration.. 80/3
45.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, There is a spike with the ball on the glove! Rahim takes a long walk back but that's after a roar from the fielders. Rahim played at it and tried to retract his hands but failed to do it in time.. 94/4
Keshav Maharaj37156501.751845001
Dean Elgar10808.0021000
Wiaan Mulder412315.75185001
111.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Cover drive takes the edge and this time, it's taken by slip! The inner Kohli is channeled again as the drive came on the up but it went to first slip at the bread basket. They check for the no-ball but it's fine. There was late movement which extended Mehidy's reach and compromised the access, so due credit needs to be given to the ball.. 267/8

Khaled Ahmed1313302.53604000
Mehidy Hasan Miraz3568532.421566000
42.4 to KD Petersen, caught at short-leg and Petersen goes. Good length on the stumps, Petersen goes back and nudges it in the air, short-leg did well not to get up too quickly, kept his eyes on the shot and takes a good catch. Hasan Joy the fielder and he is continuing his dream run in this match, this time on the field. The impressive Mehidy gets his first. 126/3
52.1 to K Verreynne, Taken by silly-point off a reverse sweep , it was on a good length around off. Verreyne shaped up for the reverse and let his hands go through with the shot. It took the under edge and went to the right of the lower part of the pad. The fielder, who was jumping as a reflex, dove to his left and took a stunning one-hander low to the ground. 148/5
64.1 to PWA Mulder, Flashing cover drive finds the edge and it's taken at slip. It was full, outside off, and was angling away. Mulder leant into the hard drive, it may come back ever so slightly. It went fast to Yasir at slip but to the bread basket. He didn't hurry or clasp at the ball which helped. Mehidy has a twirl of the index finger in celebration.. 168/6
Najmul Hossain Shanto10303.0030000
Ebadot Hossain1314033.07585010
18.3 to SJ Erwee, big shout for LBW, not given. Bangladesh review. No bat as UltraEdge shows. Three reds and Ebadot strikes. Adrian Holdstock's decision has to be overturned. Looked so out to the naked eye and it was a surprise that the onfield call was not given despite a screeching appeal. Full and angled in, seams in to miss the inside-edge on the drive of Erwee, hit low on the pad and crashing into the stumps. The only doubt was whether there was bat, there was none and Bangladesh have the first wicket of the day. 48/1
43.4 to T Bavuma, Unreal slip catch from Yasir Ali. He has dropped a few in this match, including one off Elgar today. But he pulls out a one-handed screamer low to his left. The on-air comms - Neil McKenzie and Vernon Philander are gobsmacked by that take. Amidst all this Ebadot just stares at Bavuma without saying a word as the batter walks off. No celebration this time. Angled in on a good length around off, makes Bavuma play, the thick edge is dying on Yasir, he shows great reflexes to pull that off and then tumbles across with a dive to complete the catch. Magnificent from Yasir and Das climbs on his back to celebrate. 126/4
73.6 to D Olivier, LBW given and reviewed! It was a good length ball that came in with the angle, beat the bat that Olivier presented in front, was slightly squared up and hit him in front. It was hitting the top of middle with the impact in-line, so the innings is over.. 204/10
Mominul Haque11000.0060000
Taskin Ahmed1112422.18502000
37.3 to D Elgar, Big appeal for LBW, turned down by Erasmus. There were two sounds - let's see. Bangladesh have reviewed this. Elgar is on the floor as he crouches to defend and misses. No bat and Elgar is in strife here. Three reds and another decision gets overturned. Ebadot claps Elgar off. The nip-backer on a good length, keeps low and pings Elgar right on the pad in front. Elgar did his best to keep it out but there was a doubt in Erasmus' mind, about the two noises. No such ones in Bangladesh's and Taskin gets his first of the innings. Shaun Pollock on air informs us that this is the 7th decision overturned in the game even as Russell Domingo claps the wicket from the dressing room. 116/2
65.4 to KA Maharaj, Struck in front! Marais Erasmus' finger went up before the bowler looked back. It was a full ball angling in from wide of the crease, pitched a bit outside off, missed the full-faced drive and hit the low-left part of the front-pad and that, as Shaun Pollock said, was 'Salmon Trout'. A cheer in unison comes as celebration.. 183/7

Keshav Maharaj1003273.20442100
4.1 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Bowled through the gap between bat and pad! Maharaj's on an exuberant celebratory run after the full pitches on off and comes back in to beat the lunging batter who tried to cover the line but played a bit too far inside it. The centurion from the first innings is on. 6/2
4.5 to Mominul Haque, Gone, LBW! Beaten on the flick and it's stone dead! He got on the backfoot to a good length ball that was slow, got squared up, and hit the pad with the bat along the way. In the meantime, the ball hit the pad and the skipper did not even consider the review. Maharaj was on on his celebratory runs and fist pumps again!. 8/3
6.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Rahim has been given out LBW, but he reviews. Looks plumb. No bat as UltraEdge shows, ball-tracking coming up and it's three reds. Early blow for Bangladesh. Drifting in fuller from round the wicket, Rahim plays down the wrong line, is rapped on the pad, hit in line and pretty low. Even a review does not save him. Rahim checked with Shanto and went upstairs but Erasmus' original call stands. 12/4
8.5 to Liton Das, what a soft dismissal. Chipped to the mid-on fielder. Maharaj has four and Bangladesh are halfway from a big defeat here. Tossed up on the stumps, Das gets forward and clips it in the air, did not go hard at it, Harmer moves to his right at mid-on and catches. Maharaj exults in joy. 16/5
10.5 to Yasir Ali, Maharaj! Five-fer for him! This is some spell. Drifting in on middle, brings Yasir forward and then it spins away sharply past the outside-edge and takes the off-stump out. Flattened and Yasir is surprised as to how it spun past him like that. Maharaj runs forward with folded hands to celebrate and then punches the air. Replays show that Yasir's bat come slightly down at a wrong angle and line in defence. 26/6
16.5 to Khaled Ahmed, slogged and caught by mid-on running to his right. Maharaj has one more. Tossed up on the stumps, Khaled swings and it's a thick top-edge that goes up, Williams runs around, keeps his eyes and takes it easily. Maharaj's dad watching on from the stands is pumped. A double fist-pump to celebrate. 51/9
18.6 to Taskin Ahmed, Maharaj ends the game with a seven-fer! Not even an hour's play on day 5. 55 minutes to be exact and Bangladesh have lost their last 7 wickets during that time. Quicker on the stumps, Taskin goes back to defend, slightly inside the line, the thick outside-edge, hits Taskin's back pad, before it is snapped up by Mulder at slip. What a quick end on day 5. Maharaj kisses the turf and walks off with the ball in his hand. He is leading the team off the field. I can spot a tear or two in his eye. His father is in the audience and he walks off to a standing ovation. The ball goes in his pocket as the players head back inside. 53/10
Simon Harmer932132.33441100
1.2 to Shadman Islam, Edged and taken at slip! It was full on off, Shadman was on the front-foot and tried to cover the line but it drifted and spun away, took the outside edge and was caught low by Peterson at slip. The South Africans celebrate as Shadman walks back in disappointment, being dismissed by Harmer again. 4/1
11.6 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, caught at slip! Russell Domingo has a wry smile on his face. What else can he do? Harmer gets in on the act. Turning in from outside off, Mehidy defends inside the line, the ball holds its line after pitching and takes the outside-edge. Simple catch and Bangladesh are 33/7. 33/7
15.5 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Stumping appeal sent upstairs. Verreynne is confident. Has Shanto dragged his back foot out? Is the foot on the line? The third umpire reckons Shanto is on the line and gives it out. Tossed up outside off, Shanto is beaten on the drive, as he stretches forward, the back foot is dragged out, he tries to get it back, but it's on the line, Verreynne with a good stumping. Harmer has his 3rd. 50/8
