South Africa v Bangladesh

It may have escaped your notice but Bangladesh are playing in South Africa. For all their undeniable improvement at home, a real amount of progress will need to be made on the road. Last year they lost very comfortably to New Zealand on their own patch.

In this game they won the toss and chose to bowl and SA are 411/1 at lunch on the second day. Aiden Markram scored 97 on debut and should perhaps be an entrant on the Prettly little fifties thread, especially as he got run-out.

From what I remember, they put up a decent fight in NZ and threw away very winnable positions. This tour might be a bit messy though, especially as Shakib isn't playing. The best thing would be for Fizz and Taskin to develop as quicks but it's not encouraging so far.

They'll need 400 here but Mushy getting out means that these two will have to do the bulk of the work.

Maybe learning how to evaluate pitch and atmospheric conditions on tour is part of their future development.

Have they employed Nasser Hussain as a consultant for how to turn around a losing culture?

I'm quite surprised that South Africa declared with so few runs on the board, when they could have made a lot more of their fantastic start. Is 500 runs the limit of a team's first-innings ambitions these days? Bangladesh have now saved the follow-on. South Africa may still win, of course; but with five bowlers in the team you'd think they might have given themselves more options in terms of how to go about it.

Unlucky Dean Elgar. Wasn't Ian Bell the first man out for 199 in tests? Against SA I think, 2008.

Teams never do these days, should have smashed it in that last session rather than declaring especially with rain about (I know they got 34 overs in but there was rain in forecast so they could have only got 10 overs in the evening).

Not at all, quite a few on the list.

Your guess is as good as mine. You would have thought that they would at least like to prospect of bowling in the 4th innings when there might be some deterioration helping their spinners. Shakib has sat out this tour due to reasons of wanting to rest. A big loss to both their batting and their bowling but even so they are quite a bit stronger in both departments these days as a whole.

Markram enjoying a Jacques Rudolphesque start to his Test career.

Presumably he can look forward to a long career underperforming for Glamorgan ...

Put a team in to bat and end up using 8 bowlers and getting 3 wickets, has Nas been giving them pointers or something?

The Bangladesh captain is an total idiot. Nasser only did it once, he's done it twice.

Rudolph scored 70 centuries in an admirable career. Trust an amoral cynic like you to snipe and sneer at such a decent and honourable cricketer!

Seems Glamorgan got him when he was well truly passed it.

In the first test he blamed the bowlers rather than himself. Seems a typical manager, screw it up and then blame your subordinates.
