TOTAL136.2 Ov (RR: 3.32)453
Fall of wickets: 1-52 (Sarel Erwee, 11.6 ov), 2-133 (Dean Elgar, 32.5 ov), 3-184 (Keegan Petersen, 50.3 ov), 4-267 (Ryan Rickelton, 81.3 ov), 5-271 (Temba Bavuma, 84.3 ov), 6-300 (Kyle Verreynne, 96.4 ov), 7-380 (Wiaan Mulder, 113.2 ov), 8-418 (Keshav Maharaj, 123.3 ov), 9-453 (Simon Harmer, 135.2 ov), 10-453 (Lizaad Williams, 136.2 ov)
11.6 to SJ Erwee, edged and taken well by Litton. Khaled is pumped. Full outside off, Erwee goes for the big drive away from the body, edges it and Litton dives to his left to take it. Poor shot and Bangladesh make the breakthrough. Erwee isn't happy at all for playing at that wide delivery. 52/1
84.3 to T Bavuma, Edged... and taken brilliantly at slip! It's sent upstairs to confirm if the catch was cleanly, the soft signal is out. The fingers are underneath the ball, it looks to have bounced within his hands. It stays out! It's a back of a length ball that induces a backfoot cover defence, it takes the shoulder of the bat and went between keeper and slip. Both fielders went at it, Shanto kept his eyes on the ball and ensured he pouched it low down, unfazed by the diving keeper and pouched it. Bavuma was squared up as he tried to (de)fend it as it bounced more than he expected.. 271/5
96.4 to K Verreynne, knocked him over! And Khaled roars in Verreynne's face after getting his wicket. Hits the top of middle and takes a chunk of the stump as it flies away. Pitched up and seams back down the gate, Verreynne goes for a big drive and the ball sneaks through the bat and pad gap. Early wicket for Bangladesh and one more for the impressive Khaled. 300/6
136.2 to LB Williams, Full ball is tossed up on off, the impact is in line, and it's missing the sweep to go on and hit off-stump. 453/10
32.5 to D Elgar, just reward for Taijul. He gets the big wicket of Elgar who was batting serenely out there. Quicker outside off, Elgar went back to dab and gets a thin nick which is held by Litton. No need of a review as Elgar walks. A wicket out of nowhere and it's due to the excellent spell Taijul has bowled. 133/2
50.3 to KD Petersen, Three reds and Keegan's gone! The ball, after pitching on middle on a good-length, converted into a full-length thanks to the stride missed the flick on the move and hit the pad at a good height. The backfoot went a bit too far across but came back as late adjustment. It looked to be going down leg but Hawk-Eye reckons it straightened and would hit leg stump. Bangladesh celebrate as Keegan resigns and leaves despite not wanting to.. 184/3
81.3 to RD Rickelton, There's a spike with the ball on the strap of the glove, so the decision has been overturned. Ryan went for the reverse off a full ball, he was in position but the ball may have bounced more than he expected. Nonetheless, a welcome breakthrough for Bangladesh.. 267/4
113.2 to PWA Mulder, that's a fine ball. Mulder wants to have a look at the big screen as he walks off. Well flighted and drifts in to middle, brings Mulder forward, it pitches short of the defence and turns right across to hit off-stump. That's a peach. 380/7
123.3 to KA Maharaj, No 100 for Maharaj but a five-fer for Taijul. Disappointment writ large on everyone's faces in the South African camp while Taijul just celebrates with a double fist-pump without much aggression. Tossed up on off, Maharaj goes for a big swipe to leg but is through the shot a bit early, misses and sees the furniture disturbed behind him. He really was going for everything if it was in the slot, deserved a hundred but has to walk back without one. A standing ovation for him though. 418/8
135.2 to SR Harmer, The third umpire decides the foot is in the air as the bails were dislodged. Taijul gets his 150th wicket, partly with thanks to the keeper who waited for the batter to miss his balance and took off the bails with the foot, a centimetre or two in the air at best.. 453/9

TOTAL74.2 Ov (RR: 2.91)217
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Mahmudul Hasan Joy, 0.5 ov), 2-82 (Tamim Iqbal, 20.5 ov), 3-85 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 22.5 ov), 4-100 (Mominul Haque, 28.6 ov), 5-122 (Litton Das, 32.6 ov), 6-192 (Yasir Ali, 59.6 ov), 7-210 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 68.3 ov), 8-216 (Taijul Islam, 72.1 ov), 9-217 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 73.5 ov), 10-217 (Ebadot Hossain, 74.2 ov)
0.5 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Edged and taken at first slip! It was on a good length outside off, Joy tried to get bat on ball with a little push but it took the edge and the fielder took it safely. He was a bit too early and didn't wait enough for the swinging ball, it's his second ball so it may have been instinctive but there was pretty much no margin for error. 3/1
32.6 to Litton Das, Nips back in and knocks over middle stump! It was on a good length, the cross-seamer beat the straight drive and took out the stump. Olivier looked to his skipper like the supermodel version of Nostradamus. The batter took a small stride and was caught in terms of footwork and the hand-eye coordination couldn't get him through. 122/5
68.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, "He is kidding, isn't he" is the quote from Mark Nicholas on air for that shot. Just after his fifty, Nicholas called Rahim a good professional. What a poor shot with around 5 minutes to go for lunch. Rahim goes for a reverse sweep to a full ball on off, misses, the ball keeps low and smashes the off-stump out of the ground. Why did he play that? Totally missed it and he has thrown his wicket away. 210/7
72.1 to Taijul Islam, one shot too many and Taijul is gone. This was tossed up around off, Taijul gets forward to loft but cue-ends it straight up, Williams settles under the high ball at mid-off. Taijul was taking his chances and on this wicket it was bound to be risky against two high-quality spinners. 216/8
74.2 to Ebadot Hossain, Ebadot slogs and gets out. Elgar and Erwee are rushing off which means South Africa will bat again. Tossed up temptingly for Ebadot to have a go, he swings and it's another high catch to deep mid-wicket where Williams comes in and takes it before tumbling down. Good catch as he kept his eyes on the ball under dark skies. Bangladesh have been bowled out for 217. 217/10
59.6 to Yasir Ali, leading-edge and caught by Maharaj! The stubborn stand is broken. Maharaj is elated while Yasir swipes the bat in the air in frustration. A false shot on a wicket which is turning, tossed up full, Yasir gets forward to flick and closes the face too early, pops a leading-edge back to Maharaj who bends low to catch, it hits his wrists and rolls onto the arms, then he clutches it onto the ribs and ensures it does not go down. That's the wicket South Africa were looking for. 192/6
73.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, one man to miss but Mehidy finds the lone fielder on the leg-side boundary. Tossed up on the stumps, Mehidy slogsweeps but gets more height than distance, went up in the air towards deep mid-wicket where Olivier makes no mistake with that overhead catch. Mehidy wanted to take his chances when there was a chance but holes out. It was well bowled as the ball was slower and held up on the stumps, took a while to arrive. 217/9
20.5 to Tamim Iqbal, LBW given after Tamim misses a push with a closing bat-face. It was angling in sharply but the review was not taken. It's shown to hit leg-stump by Hawk-Eye, so the angle wasn't taking it down. Tamim was falling over as he came down with a stride. 82/2
22.5 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Three reds, the ball is hitting the top of middle and leg. It looked out but was not given probably because the umpire suspected a faint inside-edge or for the impact to have been outside off. But when the ball came in wide of the crease, missed the flick, and hit the knee-roll as the head fell over outside-off, it looked out.. 85/3
28.6 to Mominul Haque, Given LBW, the skipper chooses to not review. Mulder has 3 for 5! He jumps and skips in celebration after rapping the opposition skipper on the pads with a full ball angling in. Was the impact was outside off is the only question. He played across the line, from that sharp an angle it's hard not to. The movement was what did him. The impact is on line and Hawk-Eye shows it's hitting middle on the top. 100/4

20.4 to SJ Erwee, Chips it straight to short mid-on! The full ball on the stumps stops on him slightly and he's through with the shot early, tries to check-drive it with a slightly close-faced bat but it hits just below the sticker and lobs up to the bread-basket. Taken comfortably while crouching and the bowler leaps in celebration. 90/3
11.3 to D Elgar, Elgar loses his leg-stump attempting a reverse! It was a good-length ball on off that spun back in, Elgar was far too across to counter the spinning seed, the bat connected with air and the ball hit the stump. He leaves with a whack over the stumps.. 60/1
19.4 to KD Petersen, Full ball comes in and beats the full-faced defence. The bat came across and looked to come back in to meet the ball but he was late on it, it snuck through and hit the back-leg. Hawk-Eye predicts it's going on to clip leg-stump. Umpire's call gives Bangladesh their second wicket.. 84/2
29.6 to RD Rickelton, Another catch to short mid-on! It was full just outside off, he came across and in front with a step or two and tried to push it to long-on. But it came from the inside-half close to the bottom of the bat and went low down to the fielder, who took it well with the palms underneath. 119/4
35.4 to T Bavuma, Temba tried to slog a gull ball pitching just outside off and missed it. It hit him on the back-leg after he cleared his front-leg and the ball spun back in and was shown to hit middle and leg by Hawk-Eye. The umpire's on-field call of out stays to bring Temba's innings to an end. The leg-theory comes off for the visitors. 154/5
39.5 to PWA Mulder, Knocks off-stump and Elgar calls the batters in. It was a jaffa that pitched around off and beat the outside edge. Looked to have played down on the wrong line.. 176/6

0.3 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, That's a pair for Joy! It was a full ball that pitched just outside off and turned away, Joy played slightly away from the body and tried to defend it with a full-face and tickled it to Mulder. It was close to the keeper and went away to gully. Joy had a chat with the partner but decided against the review. 1/1
2.2 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Given out LBW, Bangladesh review. It was a good length ball that spun sharply after pitching outside off, the impact was in line in front of off and was umpire's call on hitting. The batter missed the flick and thought it was spinning too much but it was clipping and that's all that was needed.. 11/2
10.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, well-caught at slip by Elgar diving to his left. Tossed up outside off, Rahim goes for a big drive but the ball spins away from a fuller length to take the edge, Elgar dives to his left to take a sharp catch. Rahim was looking to be positive today but that was a bit too ambitious and Maharaj gets the first wicket of the day. Credit to Elgar too for reacting sharply. 33/4
12.1 to Mominul Haque, that's such a poor shot from Mominul. The captain has set a bad example here. Tossed up outside off, he goes for a big sweep and top-edges it straight up, square leg goes back and takes an easy catch. Bangladesh are staring at an early defeat again. The extra bounce for Maharaj foxed Mominul on what was already a risky shot on a pitch that is turning. 38/5
20.1 to Litton Das, Das has been stumped. Third umpire called for. They will check for the catch first. No bat. He is a long way down and Verreynne flicks the bails off with Das' bat in the air. Das chooses the wrong ball to charge Maharaj, it is drifting in nicely and then spins sharply away from a length, Das is down the pitch to heave, the turn takes it across the bat. Verreynne handles the bounce and does the rest. Das tried getting back but couldn't. Another five-fer for Maharaj who looks at the heavens and bends down to kiss the turf. He is still celebrating as he does all his usual routines. 69/7
22.3 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Caught behind appeal turned down, South Africa review. The review was immediate as Verreynne was pretty sure of the nick. Let's see. Clear spike and Mehidy has to go. 6 for Maharaj. Drifting into middle, brings Mehidy forward, he has the bat on the front boot but the ball turns across and flicks the shoulder of the bat on the way to Verreynne. A sharp catch as it was bouncing. The umpire shook his head and on review South Africa were proved right by the UltraEdge which threw up a spike. 80/8
22.6 to Khaled Ahmed, Khaled has been given out LBW. He reviews though. Three reds and he is on his way. Seven for Maharaj. Again he is celebrating with his routines as the other South Africans leave him to do his job in peace. The quicker fuller slider, rushes off the pitch and beats Khaled on the forward defence, hit low on the pad and there's no bat. Plumbest of plumb LBWs. Khaled's review is just academic. South Africa just a wicket away now. 80/9
9.1 to Tamim Iqbal, Edged and taken at slip, off the shoulder of the bat. It was full, outside off. Tamim tried to defend it with the bat-face slightly open but it shoots up and spins away, takes the shoulder and lobs up to slip.. 27/3
13.6 to Yasir Ali, slogswept straight to deep mid-wicket. Yet another batter falls to the big shot. Yasir walks back head down. Tossed up on off, Yasir slogsweeps but there's deep mid-wicket in place, straight to the man who did not have to move an inch. Caught easily and that's a duck for Yasir. 44/6
23.3 to Taijul Islam, Out, given LBW. Bangladesh review It pitches on off, hits him in line after beating the front foot defence on the inside edge, and is knocking leg.. 80/10
