    Is it just me or Fizz is really trundling. Im still not convinced that Fizz is cutout for test cricket. He can’t swing/seam and cutters alone wont buy him lot of wickets.

    Perhaps its Mushfiq’s master plan to allow SA to score 6+ runs an over allowing them to score big and declare on day 1 itself. Mushfiq would be “if we cant get them allout, then we will help them score quick and declare soon enough”

    Markram is a seriously talented player. Some of the shots he's played today were brilliant. Keaton Jennings may not be much of a loss because with Markram there, I seriously doubt any other opener could have made the team.

    Both Kock and Aiden are the future of SA cricket.

    Lol, and some were saying these Bangladeshi pacers are better than their Pakistani counterparts. It does not give me any joy seeing the Bangladeshis so thoroughly pummeled however, there is definitely talent in this team but their fans need to keep things in perspective. Bangladesh have improved by leaps and bounds over the last couple of years but they are still not ready to compete with the likes of South Africa in South Africa.

    I wonder if another overly hyped bowling attack will be similarly embarrassed early next year...

    I was only kidding. India always do well in South Africa, which suits their medium-pace swing dependent pacers. If the batting holds up, it should be a blockbuster series.

    Australia scored around 20 more for the loss of two more wickets in 2012 against wait for it... South Africa. All of Steyn, Philander and Morkel were playing, IIRC, and Imran Tahir was pasted onto the turf.

    There have been cases when 400 runs have been scored on the first day. I even recall a test where the team scoring 400 runs on the first day went on to lose the test. But that test was between two proper test teams with proper batting and bowling power. The fate of this match is already sealed after one day of onesided mauling.

    What are you talking about, Bangladesh were afraid to bat here after being blown away in the last test!
    Though Mushfiqur insisted, as he did in Potchefstroom, that he wanted his bowlers to get first use of any early movement it looks very much like more than wanting to bowl, Mushfiqur didn't want to bat. All the talk of a green surface and a South African attack keen to make use of their own conditions would have been on Mushfiqur's mind.

    He wanted to protect his batsmen much more than he wanted to let his own pack loose. Anyway, if it was the bowlers he was thinking about, Mushfiqur may have been interested in Duanne Olivier's comments that the surface tends to speed up on days two and three and they would probably get more out of it then.

    That decision, based on fear not foresight, speaks volumes about the mental state of Bangladesh, or at least their captain.

    DEAN ELGAR and Aiden Markram provided the 11th instance of a South African opening partnership of more than 200 runs to set up the Standard Bank Proteas for a commanding opening day of the second Sunfoil Test match against Bangladesh at the Mangaung Oval on Friday.

    The final stand of 243 was South Africa’s eighth highest of all time and was the first instance of both opening batsmen scoring centuries since Graeme Smith and Neil McKenzie shared a stand of 204 at Lord’s in 2008.

    Elgar, who has had a wonderful year of Test cricket, completed his 1 000 Test runs for the calendar year with 5 centuries and by scoring his 10th Test century overall, became the ninth Protea batsman to achieve a double digit total of Test centuries.

    At the other end of the scale Markram made up for his near miss in the previous match with his maiden Test match century.

    What was even more impressive was the run rate they established that the Proteas maintained throughout the day. Their partnership required little more than 53 overs before Elgar was dismissed (113 off 152 balls, 17 fours). Markram, in turn, went on to finish on 143 (186 balls, 22 fours) as both batsmen had strike rates well in excess of 70.

    The Proteas scored 126 in the first session, 130 in the second and a further 172 in the slightly extended final session. The Proteas finished on 428/3 after once again being sent into bat with Hashim Amla (89 off 99 balls, 12 fours) and Faf du Plessis (62 off 92 balls, 6 fours) having so far added an unbroken 140 for the fourth wicket.

    It was a day on which the revamped Bangladesh attack took the best part of the first two sessions to either come up with an effective strategy or employ it effectively. They eventually caused a few problems with some short-pitched bowling to a well set field but it only provided temporary relief until Amla and Du Plessis put their collective feet on the accelerator pedal.

    Du Plessis is now in a position to take the lead to whatever he wants, probably somewhere in the region of 600 and still give his bowlers a first assault on Bangladesh with plenty of overs still to be bowled on day two.

    Apart from the runs that they put on the board the Proteas will be well pleased with a pitch with a lot more pace and bounce than its predecessor at Potchefstroom and the fact that the Bangladesh attack could use the short ball effectively suggests that the Proteas will be able to do a lot more of the same.

    The Proteas hit 58 boundaries on the day to give a huge boost to the Sunfoil Educational Trust (SET) fund to promote underprivileged education. It boosted the fund by R65 500, taking the total for the series so far to R290 000.

    Agree with this post, outside a couple of guys their fans can often come across as a bit obnoxious and even more then India fans at times! . And I disagree about not being bothered with Shakib in the team because oh they would have lost anyway, but even in defeat if you have maybe a couple of guys go out there and fight it reflects better on the team.

    Some fans, man

    What did you expect? Not every game you play will be in Bangladesh, on docile pitches, or pitches that cater to your spinners.

    Many users suggested the same thing. Once Bangladesh get out of the comfort of their own country, and home pitches their fans will soon realise maybe their side isn't as good as they thought.

    Don't understand why Bangladesh Decided to bowl first. Probably got put off by little green tinge on the pitch. It is going to be an uphill task for them to get close to SA's first innings total.

    Addition of Markram is looking ominous for tourist teams. If ABDV comes back, SA will be firm favorite against India.

    Your neighbor has won a ODI series in South Africa. Understandable, given they are the better cricketing nation.

    If? He has to come back, no? Bat de Kock at #6 and have Bavuma or one of the all-rounders at #7.

    Their entire batting lineup seems to revolve around 2 players, ABDV is not certain to be a smash hit against India though knowing AB he will look to do well on his return. We also have better depth & quality in our batting lineup, if Steyn plays every game then SA are firm favorites, without him it's 50/50 pending conditions i.e. mainly the pitch.

    I feel that India will do well in South Africa. If they flatter to deceive this time then I will stop following Indian cricket, as I did for some time after march 2007.

    Bangladesh are woefully out of depth here.


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    LOL What a phainty!

    If I was Faf, I wouldn't enforce follow-on. Instead bat whole 3rd day and give Bangladesh 800 to chase in 2 days.

    And he enforces the follow-on

    Well bowled to Rabada for his 5-fer. Don't like him, but he is a future legend.
