Bangladesh lost without a fight

This is the essence of Bangladesh’s batting in the second innings of the Durban Test. No batsman has been able to settle down, let alone fight. To be all out till the end is the lowest 53 runs in their history.

The target of 284 runs is not easy, but the way Bangladesh was wrapped up, one must think. Bangladesh were bowled out for 53 in the second innings. The match was lost by 220 runs.

The day before, however, it was understood that the work was going to be quite difficult. Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Sadman Islam and Muminul Haque returned with just six runs added. But who would have thought that the work is so difficult!

Bangladesh could not play for an hour on the last day. Only 13 overs played in the number of overs. That is why he lost seven wickets. Proteas captain Dean Elgar did not use anyone other than two spinners Simon Harmer and Keshav Maharaj to bowl out 10 Bangladeshi batsmen.

The last day started with the experienced Mushfiqur Rahim. Unable to understand the arm ball, he became lbw. Couldn’t live with the review, returned with zero runs. The next batsman, Liton Das, returned with a simple catch to Maharaj, who was standing at mid-on. 2 runs off 8 balls.

None of the others could settle down. Nazmul Hossain, who was, could not calm down for a long time. He was stumped for 26 off 52 balls. Bangladesh was all out for 53 runs. Keshav Maharaj took 6 wickets and Harmer took 3 wickets.

South Africa first innings: 36/10 in 121 overs (Temba Babuma 93, Dean Elgar 6; Khaled Ahmed 4/92, Mehdi Hasan Miraj 3/94)
