TOTAL120 Ov (RR: 4.77, 508 Mins)573/4d
Fall of wickets: 1-243 (Dean Elgar, 53.4 ov), 2-276 (Aiden Markram, 58.4 ov), 3-288 (Temba Bavuma, 61.2 ov), 4-535 (Hashim Amla, 113.6 ov)
53.4 to D Elgar, taken at fine leg. Elgar started to lose his concentration against the short one last over. And Markram showed how difficult it was to get the pull shot away just one ball ago. Still, he takes this short one on with a pul. It's a top-edge that dips on fine leg who does well to watch it closely and hold on. 243/1
61.2 to T Bavuma, Roy strikes again. He follows the full one with a back-of-a-length delivery wide outside off. He finds some extra bounce to graze the top edge. Bavuma slashes away from the body and snicks it behind to the keeper. 288/3
113.6 to HM Amla, Amla, standing on leg stump, shuffles across off. He misses a full, straight ball. Would you believe it? Roy pegs the middle stump back. Amla's average drops below 50. 535/4
58.4 to AK Markram, After pushing Markram back with a volley of short balls, he floors the middle stump with a very full inswinger. The opener, however, walks back to a rousing reception. Rubel spears it in at 140.2ks and storms through the defences of a crease-bound Markram. Genuine wicket-taking delivery from Rubel. Bangladesh need more of these. 276/2

TOTAL42.5 Ov (RR: 3.43, 207 Mins)147
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Soumya Sarkar, 6.4 ov), 2-26 (Mominul Haque, 9.4 ov), 3-36 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 11.5 ov), 4-49 (Mahmudullah, 14.2 ov), 5-61 (Imrul Kayes, 17.3 ov), 6-65 (Sabbir Rahman, 19.3 ov), 7-115 (Taijul Islam, 31.2 ov), 8-143 (Litton Das, 38.6 ov), 9-143 (Mustafizur Rahman, 39.3 ov), 10-147 (Rubel Hossain, 42.5 ov)
6.4 to Soumya Sarkar, Sarkar has been bowled around the legs. Sarkar has been pushed back by a volley of short balls. He sits back, then shuffles across, to this good length ball. He plays all around it, and watches it hit the leg stump. 13/1
17.3 to Imrul Kayes, outside edge, taken by de Kock. Low to his left as this dips on him. Good catch. And you don't have to take a guess at how the ball got there. Back of a length ball, wide outside off stump and it's a slashing bat at it, away from his body.. 61/5
19.3 to Sabbir Rahman, chips it straight to extra cover. Full ball, tempts him outside off stump. Might have been slight shape away too. He goes after it with a drive and bunts it off the bottom of the bat, straight to Parnell. 65/6
38.6 to Litton Das, Rabada returns and nabs Liton. Hip-high short ball on off stump, Liton aims to pull it over square leg. Instead, he skies a top edge. Faf settles under it at second slip. 143/8
42.5 to Rubel Hossain, Rabada claims a five-wicket haul - his sixth in 22 Tests - and wraps up Bangladesh for 147. Rubel backs away outside leg. This is an inch-perfect middle-stump yorker from Rabada. Bam! No shame in missing that. Even a genuine batsman would have cleaned up. 147/10
9.4 to Mominul Haque, is that a glove? Yes! Gets this to climb at his ribs, at a leg stump line. He fends at it, unlike the couple of leaves so far down leg side. It's too quick for him, and his jump isn't enough to help him. Tickled to de Kock. 26/2
11.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, he's taken it! Bavuma has actually pulled this off at gully! I don't think he can believe it either. Back of a length outside off stump, stabs away from the body again and this time it flies off the face of the bat to Bavuma's right. He picks this up slightly late and therefore has to go with one hand. It's behind him when he pouches it and then tumbles to adjust for the momentum and hold on. He stares at the ball, then at the cordon, then at the ball - all this in no time. Stunning.. 36/3
31.2 to Taijul Islam, Nip-backer from Olivier. He bursts through the gate of Taijul. Back of a length, angling in, curving in sharply from around the wicket. Taijul dares to drive with a big bat-pad gap. Olivier clatters through it and knocks out the off stump. Bangladesh seven down. 115/7
14.2 to Mahmudullah, he's gone next ball! Oh they keep chasing away from the body. Nicks through to de Kock. Back of a length, wide outside off stump. It's not a cut, and certainly isn't a drive off the back foot. Feels for it and it's easy for the keeper. Says no to the review as he walks past Kayes. 49/4
39.3 to Mustafizur Rahman, A big appeal for a catch in front of the wicket. Not given by umpire Dharmasena. De Kock is keen on a review. Elgar was keen as well. Faf goes for it. Pushed through quicker, starts outside off and breaks back in. Mustafiz prods at it and offers up a bat-pad catch to Markram forward short leg. There's a deflection, and Mustafiz has to go. Maharaj enters the wickets column. 143/9

TOTAL42.4 Ov (RR: 4.03, 221 Mins)172
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Soumya Sarkar, 4.2 ov), 2-29 (Mominul Haque, 8.5 ov), 3-63 (Imrul Kayes, 15.3 ov), 4-92 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 23.4 ov), 5-135 (Litton Das, 32.5 ov), 6-139 (Mahmudullah, 33.6 ov), 7-145 (Sabbir Rahman, 36.6 ov), 8-145 (Taijul Islam, 37.2 ov), 9-156 (Rubel Hossain, 39.2 ov), 10-172 (Mustafizur Rahman, 42.4 ov)
4.2 to Soumya Sarkar, taken at second slip. It's that shot again. That unambitious prod outside off stump, the nervous response on the front foot after all the anxiety on the back. This one is good length, outside off stump, and he's playing away from the body with no feet. Faf falls to his right and snaps it in front of first slip. 13/1
8.5 to Mominul Haque, holes out to deep square leg. Probably instinct to go after the short one after copping one on the helmet. This cramps him at chest height and he swipes it straight to the fielder who is 15 yards in from the boundary. 29/2
33.6 to Mahmudullah, big dive to the left from Elgar at gully and that is Rabada's 100th Test wicket. Back of a length and wide outside off. It rises off the pitch as he shapes to drive it off the back foot and in the end he's forced to reach out with hard hands. Slices it and Elgar gets both hands as he flies to the left. 139/6
37.2 to Taijul Islam, leg stump out of the floor and out for a spin! Back of a length outside off stump, stabs at it away from the body, half looking to get out of the line. Big inside edge onto leg stump. 145/8
39.2 to Rubel Hossain, yorker at middle stump and eventually one would sneak through. Smashes the stumps as he looks to slice it. That's ten wickets in the match for Rabada. 156/9
15.3 to Imrul Kayes, has he been strangled down the leg side? De Kock goes up as do the rest of South Africa and the umpire upholds their appeal. Short of a length, looks for a tuck off the hips but Kayes gets an edge through to the keeper. 63/3
23.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, error in judgement from Mushfiqur. Lets one go but has worn it on the pad. Top delivery from Parnell, though. Mushfiqur wasn't entirely wrong in letting it go. Like the previous deliveries, this one's angled across. Pitches on a length around middle and leg. Mushfiqur plants the front foot across and lifts his bat but the ball nips in ever-so-slightly very late to hit the pad. Mushfiqur opts for a review. Replays show that the impact is in line and the ball would have just about clipped off stump so the umpire's call remains. 92/4
32.5 to Litton Das, shoulders arms and loses off stump. He took it away from the corridor for quite a while and Liton was happy to leave. But this one is angled in and hits the top of off stump. Well set up from the seamer. 135/5
36.6 to Sabbir Rahman, taken at second slip. Good, disciplined bowling. Back of a length in the corridor, late movement away and he pokes at it. Nice healthy edge, a bit of a stretch for Faf at slip, but all too easy in the end. 145/7
42.4 to Mustafizur Rahman, bowled. Goes full and straight, Mustafizur looks to swiped it over midwicket and misses. Leg stump thumped comprehensively. 172/10
