In the end, Bangladesh’s innings collapsed like a house of cards (Photo: Collected)
Bangladesh were bowled out for 216 in reply to South Africa’s 453 in the first innings. The Proteas got a lead of 236 runs. Dean Elgar’s team started batting again without following Bangladesh.
The third day’s play was delayed due to rain at night. Bangladesh got off to a great start in the morning by batting 318 runs behind South Africa in Port Elizabeth. Yasir Ali Rabbi completed the fifty-run partnership with Mushfiqur Rahim in 74 balls. Although he has to return before half-century.
Yasir played an innings of 48 off 6 balls with 6 fours before being caught by Keshav Maharaj. After his departure, Mehdi Hasan Miraj crossed the 200-run mark with a four shot from Dwayne Oliver’s ball.
Mushfiqur has not had a good time with the bat for a long time. He failed to bat in both innings of the Durban Test. However, the right-handed batsman got a half-century in the first innings of the Port Elizabeth Test. He touched the 25th half-century of his Test career off 134 balls with a boundary by sweeping the ball of Simon Harmer.
After the half-century, however, Mushfiqur was out playing a suicide shot. Mushfiqur, who hit a half-century off the first ball of Harmer’s over, tried to reverse sweep the third ball. However, the ball went under the bat and hit the stumps. Returning to the dressing room at the crucial moment, Mushfiqur scored 51 runs from the bat.
In the end no one was able to settle down. Mehdi, Taizul Islam and Ebadat Hossain returned to the toilet one by one. Bangladesh was all out for 216 runs. South Africa got the lead with 236 runs. Mulder and Harmer took three wickets each for the Proteas.
South Africa (First Innings) – 453/10 (136.2 overs) (Elgar 60, Petersen 64, Babuma 8, Maharaj 6 *, Riquelton 42, Erwai 24; Taizul 8/135, Khaled 3/100)
Bangladesh (first innings) – 217/10 (64.2 overs) (Tamim 48, Shant 33, Mushfiqur 51, Yasir 47; Mulder 3/25, Olivier 2/39, Harmer 3/39).
