Elgar, Markram make Bangladesh pay for poor bowling

Faf du Plessis of South Africa World XI

They were 99 for 0 at lunch in the first Test, and went onto extend their dominance.

Paterson, 28, plays for the Cape Cobras and has played for South Africa in four Twenty20 internationals.

At the second innings for their lowest against South Africa the team collected the score of 90 was also the first time they have been dismissed for under 100 in a decade.

Morkel left the field after bowling 5.2 overs on Sunday's fourth day of play, during which he took the first two of three Bangladesh wickets which fell before the close.

Lorgat has handed in his resignation as CSA chief.


Elgar settled quicker than his opening partner Markram, who must be wondering what all the fuss about Test cricket is about.

There are other formats that are being experimented with. It should not be allowed to suffer.

Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander, and Morne Morkel may all be back at some stage but they are injured rate means South Africa need to start looking at other options and this series is the start of that search. I know people will point to the size of the crowds, but that's all about who you're playing against, that's what it boils down to. De Villiers gave up the one-day captaincy after the Champions Trophy in England earlier this year, enabling Faf du Plessis to be captain in all three worldwide formats. I believe the great Test matches have gone to the last hour of the last day on day five.

"Bowlers have to bowl a lot more and batters have to construct much bigger innings", he insisted. If you go and play around the world, Test cricket is followed quite well.

"Having four-day Tests would be tricky, I'm a fan of five-day Tests". Though that experience was forgettable, he has enjoyed more successful outings at the ground in the past, and was the leading wicket-taker in first-class cricket last season, when Knights won the title.
