South Africa positive after Bangladesh take lead

Liton Das brought up his maiden fifty in 101 balls

Liton Das scored his first Test fifty and shared a 82-run stand with Shakib Al Hasan to help Bangladesh fabricate their greatest lead, 78, against any group when batting second, however South Africa's openers, Dean Elgar and Stiaan van Zyl, all excluding wiped that away. They came to the end of a shortened day unscathed and only 17 keeps running behind, with adequate time, climate allowing, to set an objective.

South Africa may view this as their greatest day in this way. Regardless of the Shakib-Liton association, Bangladesh's last four wickets submitted to 15 keeps running as Dale Steyn discovered his chomp with the bouncer and completed one shy of the 400-wicket mark. At that point, the South Africans openers batted without breaking a sweat than their whole line-up did in the first innings and developed in certainty, particularly against the spinners, to discredit the favorable position Bangladesh picked up.

The has' day started enthusiastically as Mushfiqur Rahim attempted to benefit as much as possible from the old ball. He tackled Steyn and was operative until the quick bowler rapped him on the cushions with a length ball, and entreated the survey after Umpire Joe Wilson wasn't persuaded it was out. Replays established the ball was going ahead to hit center stump and Steyn had made his first cut in the arrangement.

South Africa took the new ball one over after it got to be accessible, and tasked Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel with grabbing wickets. At the point when neither could, Steyn was brought back, with Simon Harmer working at the flip side. In spite of the fact that Harmer discovered turn, he was now and again too short and both Shakib and Liton were open to going up against him. They turned out to be significantly more agreeable after they secured the lead with Liton's pinpoint drive off Steyn before lunch, and South Africa then had additional spinner, JP Duminy, working after the break. .

Shakib came to his most noteworthy Test score against South Africa and had a half-century in vision, so went for a heavenliness shot off Harmer. In any case, what he right-hand would be a full-blooded maneuver transformed into a top-edge to give Duminy an agreeable catch at short midwicket and leave Liton with the tail.

Mohammad Shahid offered solid backing when he took 18 keeps running off Harmer's next over, all in limits. The main was a random external edge; the following three substantial blows over mid-off, midwicket and traditional down the ground. His fun just endured ten more transferences. Subsequent to belting Vernon Philander through dairy animal’s corner, Shahid endeavored to trudge yet van Zyl took a decent catch at mid-wicket.

Liton was more mindful and showed expansion and class. His spread commute off Morkel was the most exquisite stroke over the more than two days of hard granulate of either side. There was nothing as smart to raise his half-century - it accompanied a solitary to the leg side off the 101st conveyance he confronted.

Later, in the same over, his innings finished. Liton was gotten in his wrinkle by a sharp offbreak and inside edged the ball onto his cushion. Quinton de Kock took the catch and broke the stumps in the meantime and umpire Richard Kettleborough needed to check for a clean catch, which replays demonstrated to it was.

South Africa could see the end when de Kock advanced for a got behind off Taijul Islam off Morne Morkel yet Umpire Wilson gave it not out and it remained as such on audit, so Steyn was brought back. What's more, it was with a retaliation. He banged it to put it plainly, hit Mustafizur on the protective cap as a notice and after that had Taijul gotten at ravine and Mustafizur Rahman at point to end Bangladesh's innings, and allow South Africa to put weight on Bangladesh surprisingly.

Elgar and van Zyl took that open door. They arranged a precarious 40 moment period before tea, which included confronting a spinner, Taijul, first up and after that, Mahmudullah and Shakib, with alert and subsequently hunkered down in an abbreviated third session. Awful light finished play following 50 minutes however not before both Elgar and van Zyl demonstrated their capacity to handle turn better. Not at all like the 1st innings, when South Africa's batsmen were frequently stuck in the wrinkle, they moved their feet and searched for crevices in the field. They discovered the technique worked yet it will need to continue working if South Africa need a triumphant target.
