South Africa beat Bangladesh by 333 runs in 1st Test

Are four-day matches the innovation Test cricket needs

It pits a traditionally strong side the much awaited South Africa vs Bangladesh is touted as the emerging one that can prove its worth in this period of the game.

The South African cricket board has scheduled a four-day Test against Zimbabwe on Boxing Day but is awaiting approval from the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the game.

Probably the team Bangladesh has a good chance of transferring their home improvements to overseas but the team needs to be the concern for themselves little more.

"He made a joke after this Test match that he is going to retire with a 100% strike rate".

The hosts would be pleased with the start, which mirrored the wicketless first session in Potchefstroom.

"We want another dominant performance". They had no more success, though.

92 - Wickets Kagiso Rabada has picked up in the 21 Test matches he has played so far.

South African fast bowler Morne Morkel is likely to be out of action for up to six weeks with an abdominal tear, team manager and doctor Mohammed Moosajee said on Monday. He toured England with the South Africa A team earlier this year and took seven for 27 in a first-class match against Hampshire.

Captain, Faf du Plessis, has gained two places to reach 16th position while Temba Bavuma has moved up three places to reach a career-best 36th position.

At lunch, the Proteas had reached 126 without loss with Dean Elgar on 72 and Aiden Markram on 54.

Bangladesh will be without opener Tamim Iqbal in the second Test against South Africa due to a hip injury.

Given the track has a layer of grass on it, Bangladesh opted to bowl.

Squad: Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rhaman, Nasir Hossain, Mehidi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain, and Saifuddin.
