Bangladesh made history by winning a Test match in New Zealand earlier this year. This time, the Tigers have a chance to make history in South Africa.
Muminul Haque Sourav will have to score 264 runs in the second innings to win the Durban Test. In order to get the desired victory, the batsmen of Bangladesh have to show extra responsibility.

Proteas captain Dean Elgar formed a 48-run partnership with Sarel Erwick in the opening over after batting 89 runs in the second innings. Sarel became lbw off Ebadat Hossain for just 7 runs off 51 balls.

When Elgar returned to LBW with 116 runs for the team after getting life twice, his personal collection was 74 runs. He made 6 runs in the first innings.
Mehdi Hasan Miraj then hit the South African camp one after another. Keegan Petersen, Kyle Vereina and One Mulder returned as the third, fifth and sixth batsmen. Ebadat Hossain returned the fourth batter Timba Bavuma in the middle. And Taskin returned Keshab Maharaj as the seventh batsman.
