For the Proteas, Steyn and Harmer picked up three wickets and Philander took a couple of them. Morkel was the one who went wicket less. We still have a lot of play left today. For now, the Bangla Tigers are ahead in the match. Will they be able to be in the same position at the end of the day? We'll find that out soon.

That's a great effort by Bangladesh. They have managed to gain a healthy lead at the end of the second innings. This is their highest score against South Africa in Test matches. For the hosts, Tamim, Mahmudullah and Das showed some fight and scored fifties. Shakib had a chance to get a fifty as well but he got out to a rash shot.
