Bangladesh South Africa Test

Bangladesh suffered from another crashing defeat to South Africa following the first Test as the hosts have earned a commanding 332 run win over them in the second and series concluder at Port Elizabeth on Monday.

Keshav Maharaj, who finished with seven wickets in the second innings of the opener of the series at Kingsmead, Durban scalped another seven while Simon Harmer concluded with 3 to depose the Tigers for 80 runs in just one hour of the day-4 play within 23.3 overs who posted 218 in their first innings.

Chasing 413, the Russell Domingo charges resumed their innings on 27-3 with their overnight batter Mominul Haque who remained unbeaten on 5 and needed another 386 runs to win the game with two days to spare.

Mushqur Rahim joined him the following day; however, the pair couldn’t carry on their innings for long to gather a substantial score as the latter gave a catch to Dean Elgar just for a single by Keshav Maharaj.

Skipper Mominul Haque followed the steps of Musfiqur two overs later when Keshav Maharaj had him caught to Ryan Rikcelton for 5 lessening the visitors to 38-5 inside the 20 minutes of the morning session of the day.

In the sixth wicket stand, Liton Das and Yasir Ali Chowdhury aimed to make a long stay at the crease, but they failed as the duo found the life really onerous in the acute turning condition that led Yasir Ali to give a catch to Kyle Verreynne for a duck.

Liton das, who eyed to release pressure hitting some boundaries, made an early exit for 27 off 33 by Keshav Maharaj.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz struck a 20 off 25 balls in the lower middle order before he fell to Maharaj.

Maharaj claimed another two after he had Taijul Islam and Khaled Ahmed for a duck each to bundle out the visitors for 80.
