2nd Test Match
Saint George’s Park, Port Elizabeth, South Africa
Bangladesh was certainly not expecting an upset to dent their winning morale as Keshav Maharaj got through quick wickets with his spinning deliveries. After winning the ODI series 2-1, Bangladesh was expected to play with full strength and confidence in the tests, but Dean Elgar and his men were quite competitive to beat. Not taking any credits from Temba Bavuma and Dean Elgar, South Africans played the ball on merit and scored a competitive last innings total.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
South Africa- Eying for a 2-0 Series Victory
Though many regular players aren’t in the South Africa lineup, they showed some character and courage against Bangladesh’s full-strength lineup. Temba Bavuma scored 93 in the first innings in the first game, with Elgar scoring a quick 67. However, with the ball, it was the heroics of Lizaad Williams and Simon Harmer. In the second innings, Dean Elgar again played a responsible inning of 64 along with Ryan Rickelton, who managed to get odd 39 runs. For the next test match, South Africa might play the same winning combination.
