BD v SA highlights today – Second test day two from Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein (South Africa) Saturday 7th October 2017. Yesterday South Africa scored 428 runs with three wickets down. D Elgar scored 113 runs off 152 deliveries, he completed his innings with seventeen 4s. When his wicket dismissed then it was 53.4 taken at fine leg. Elgar started to lose his concentration against the short one last over. And Markram showed how difficult it was to get the pull shot away just one ball ago. Still, he takes this short one on with a pul. It’s a top-edge that dips on fine leg who does well to watch it closely and hold on 243/1.
Bangladesh won that toss and elected to field first.

Match Timings: 10:00 local (08:00 GMT)
AK Markram smashed 143 runs off 186 balls, he smashed 22 4s in his beautiful innings, when his wicket dismissed then it was 58.4 After pushing Markram back with a volley of short balls, he floors the middle stump with a full inswinger. The opener, however, walks back to a rousing reception. Rubel spears it in at 140.2ks and storms through the defences of a crease-bound Markram. Genuine wicket-taking delivery from Rubel. Bangladesh needs more of these 276/2. T Bavuma had not survived for so long and gone with scoring just seven runs by facing twelve balls. HM Amla 89 not out and F du Plessis (c) 62 not out.
