TOTAL83.4 Ov (RR: 2.96)248
Fall of wickets: 1-58 (Stiaan van Zyl, 13.4 ov), 2-136 (Dean Elgar, 46.5 ov), 3-136 (Faf du Plessis, 47.1 ov), 4-173 (Hashim Amla, 59.1 ov), 5-173 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 59.2 ov), 6-173 (Quinton de Kock, 59.4 ov), 7-208 (Vernon Philander, 70.5 ov), 8-237 (Simon Harmer, 79.2 ov), 9-239 (Dale Steyn, 79.4 ov), 10-248 (Temba Bavuma, 83.4 ov)
59.1 to HM Amla, Maiden Test wicket for Mustafizur, Amla now edges behind. This was full and slides away with the angle outside off. Amla pushes away from the body and do so with firm hands and Litton has his third dismissal. Big, big wicket for the hosts. 173/4
59.2 to JP Duminy, an appeal for lbw, not given by umpire Wilson. Mushfiqur wants a review. Mustafizur's footing is fine. Full and cuts back in to ping Duminy on the front pad after beating the inside edge. Hit below the knee-roll in front of middle. It would have crashed into middle and leg. Two wickets in two balls for Mustafizur. Duminy shaped for a flick and fell over. He has to go; the on-field call has been overturned.... 173/5
59.4 to Q de Kock, Make that three in four balls for Mustafizur. South Africa slide to 173 for 6. The off stump has been sent cartwheeling. Very full and keeps low. Perhaps, QdK was late onto the defensive push. Mustafizur razes the off stump. Mustafizur is mobbed by his team-mates. 173/6
83.4 to T Bavuma, Mustafizur wraps South Africa up for 248. Mustafizur bags 4 for 37 on debut. Short and outside off, Bavuma has to fetch the pull from there. He finds Jubair at deep midwicket. Dolly catch. 248/10
47.1 to F du Plessis, Shakib comes back and traps Faf in front. Two wickets in three balls. No fifty for Faf either. Arm-ball, skids on, keeps low and strikes Faf on the front pad, well below the knee-roll in front of off. It would have crashed into off. Bangladesh hit back and the crowd roarrrrrs. 136/3
13.4 to S van Zyl, Stiaan has been snaffled down the leg side and Chittagong finds its voice again. Innocuous ball, sliding down leg at 92ks. Arm-ball. Stiaan seeks to glance it away fine. Instead, the ball brushes the face and Litton takes it, moving to his right. And that's drinks. 58/1
46.5 to D Elgar, grabbed on the rebound.. Elgar has nicked off. Slides on outside off, non-turning ball but bounces extra. Elgar targets the gap at point but ends up feathering it behind. Litton misses it on the first attempt, juggles, swivels back, dives and takes it on the second over his left shoulder. Taijul has broken through. Reward for Bangladesh after stringing together a volley of maidens. 136/2
70.5 to VD Philander, Edged to slip, no mistake from Shakib. Flighted and spins away, leaving Philander prodding from the crease. Shakib pouches the nick. Jubair is pumped. The drop does not prove costly, Ferdous and the drink will taste doubly sweet for Bangladesh. 208/7
79.2 to SR Harmer, half-tracker from Jubair, sits up on its knees to be punished. Harmer loads up for a pull as Mominul at short leg is forced to take evasive action. But somehow the ball gets stuck between his arm and stomach. Lucky break for Bangladesh. 237/8
79.4 to DW Steyn, holes out to mid-off, who is rather deeper than normal. Flatter legbreak outside off, Steyn wants to golf- swing it over the leg side. He does not get hold of it as he skewers it to Tamim. Two wickets in three balls for Jubair... 239/9

TOTAL116.1 Ov (RR: 2.80)326
Fall of wickets: 1-46 (Imrul Kayes, 18.2 ov), 2-55 (Mominul Haque, 21.5 ov), 3-144 (Tamim Iqbal, 53.3 ov), 4-178 (Mahmudullah, 66.1 ov), 5-195 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 72.5 ov), 6-277 (Shakib Al Hasan, 101.6 ov), 7-311 (Mohammad Shahid, 107.3 ov), 8-319 (Litton Das, 109.6 ov), 9-325 (Taijul Islam, 114.3 ov), 10-326 (Mustafizur Rahman, 116.1 ov)
72.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, an appeal for lbw, umpire Wilson shakes his head. Amla wants a review. On a length and curls in, Mushfiq is smacked on the back thigh. No signs of an inside edge. The noise came from the bat jamming the pad. The projections show that it would have hit middle and the decision has been overturned. Mushfiq has to depart. Steyn finally strikes, has his hands aloft and is mobbed by his team-mates. His headband is all messed up.... 195/5
114.3 to Taijul Islam, Steyn strikes, again. Taken by Elgar. Short and rises outside off, at 140.6ks, Tajul aims to dab it between slip and gully. No dice. Elgar dives across to his right and completes a smart catch. 325/9
116.1 to Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh have been bowled out for 326, with a lead of 78. Steyn has his 399th Test wicket.. Banged in short and follows Mustafizur, who had made room, ramping it in the air. Duminy runs back from backward point and pulls off another smart catch. 326/10
66.1 to Mahmudullah, an appeal for lbw, umpire Wilson raises his finger. Mahmudullah chats with Mushfiq and does not go for a review. Fuller length and skiddy on middle and leg, jags back in. Mahmudullah seeks to flick it away but loses his balance and falls over as he is rapped around the knee-roll of the front pad. It would have clipped leg. I guess that umpire's call would have prevailed even if Bangladesh had reviewed it. 178/4
107.3 to Mohammad Shahid, And he comes into play right away. Back of a length, Shahid backs away and slogs it away in the air over midwicket. Stiaan flings himself forward and takes it. Meanwhile, the batsman have crossed over. 311/7
21.5 to Mominul Haque, Harmer strikes, timberrrr. The off stump is knocked out. Darted flat and quick, slides on. A bit too close to cut. Mominul goes deep in the crease but misses the stroke. Harmer nails off. 55/2
101.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, Harmer has his man now. Slides on flat and quick, Shakib aims for a pull and ends up skying it again off a top edge. Duminy takes a comfortable overhead catch at short midwicket. No fifty for Shakib. 277/6
109.6 to Litton Das, Harmer takes high-fives from QdK. Is Liton out caught behind? Umpire Kettleborough nips the celebration in the bud. They go to the TV umpire. Sharp offbreak, turns in with extra bounce ans surprised Liton. He is crease bound and gets an inside edge onto the thigh, Qdk bends forward and takes it cleanly with his right hand in front of the off stump. Impressive reflexes from QdK. 319/8
18.2 to Imrul Kayes, Kayes nearly falls over and loses his balance. Has he been stumped down the leg side? They go to the third umpire. The bowler's footing is fine. Swinging down the leg side, Kayes seeks to flick it away but only connects with thin air. QdK does the result. Van Zyl breaks the opening stand. Kayes can't drag his back foot back in time. It was in the air by the time Qdk whipped the bails off. Kayes throws his head back as he walks off. Mahmudullah did it for the hosts, Van Zyl provides the breakthrough for South Africa. 46/1
53.3 to Tamim Iqbal, Elgar gets rid of Tamim. Chittagong has been hushed into silence. The bowler, though, roars Nice, loopy ball, full-toss. Tamim goes low for a sweep and does not connect. The ball dips late and hits the leg stump. The 89-run stand has been broken.. 144/3
