South Africa vs Bangladesh, 2nd Test at Bloemfontein, Day 3

South Africa vs Bangladesh, 2nd Test at Bloemfontein, Day 3

Amla (132) and Du Plessis (135 not out) became the third and fourth centurions of the innings.

Du Plessis and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock kept the scoreboard ticking with a quickfire 38-run stand before South Africa declared on 573/4. It was the biggest win for South Africa in their Test history, surpassing the innings and 229 run victory over Sri Lanka in 2000/01.

For Rabada, though, there was plenty to celebrate with a landmark Test scalp - thanks in part to great work from Dean Elgar - and 10 wickets in the match to cap a masterful performance.

Pence posted two hours before kickoff that he was at the game and ready to cheer on the Colts and Manning. The uptick in protests during the anthem happened once president Trump criticized the players.

Rabada and Olivier sent down numerous short-pitched deliveries and three batsmen were struck on their batting helmets, including captain Mushfiqur Rahim, who had lengthy treatment on the field after ducking into a bouncer from Olivier with his score on 11 soon after the mid-morning drinks break.

South Africa were barely tested with bat or ball in this match. In the first game, South Africa made 496-3 declared in response.

Kagiso Rabada took 5-33 and new ball partner Duanne Olivier claimed 3-40. Bangladeshi bowlers were not so use in the ground and it seems Proteas batsmen dominated them completely.

He had previously tweeted a photograph of himself at a Colts game, adding he was "looking forward to cheering for our Colts". The Vice President said he left in objection to an "event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag and our national anthem".

Starting day two on 428 for three, South Africa motored to 573 for the loss of just one more wicket before opting against further punishment.

Markram, whose maiden Test hundred came off 141 balls with 16 fours, fell when an inswinging yorker from Rubel Hossain removed his middle stump.

Du Plessis followed before lunch, also reaching his century with a four as the boundaries continued to flow for South Africa. However, both of the scored century again in their first innings of second Test.

Just because you were a good player doesn't automatically mean you can do it. Like I say, I don't have that intention right now. It's not as though you can go on until you're 50.

It was another poor showing from the tourist, which was outclassed in every department in Bloemfontein, Mahmudullah (43) proving its highest scorer in a second innings in which it tallied just 172 and showed minimal resolve. After a brief stay at the crease, he was eventually dismissed for 26. In return, Bangladesh came to bat but started to lose wickets in 13 team runs.
