Mehedi Hasan along with Shafiul Islam would look to develop their small stand into a big one, while South Africa will aim to clean up the tail as quickly as possible going ahead in the day. Bangladesh at the moment are trailing by 188. <p></p> <p></p>South Africa returned with a motto to dismantle the Bangladeshi line-up at the start of the post-lunch session. The damage began with the wicket of Mominul Haque for 77. He handed a straight forward catch to Aiden Markram, his third catch of the innings. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Mahmudullah who survived a DRS call, slowly picked up pace and eased himself to a fifty, first against South Africa. It was also his 14th half-century in Tests. <p></p> <p></p>Despite quite a few chopping and changing of bowlers, Faf du Plessis had no luck for a while until Duanne Olivier got lucky. He picked up the wicket of Sabbir Rahman, who chopped the ball on to his stumps for 30. <p></p> <p></p>Mahmudullah helped his side avoid a follow-on, but the return of Morne Morkel saw him fall for 66. His 124-ball stay comprised of 11 fours and a six. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier, Mominul Haque recorded a well-deserved half-century for Bangladesh. He in alliance with Tamim Iqbal saw off some hostile bowling by Morkel and Kagiso Rabada. Both were lucky to survive leg-before calls against Rabada. <p></p> <p></p>The only wicket of the morning fell to debutant, Andile Phehlukwayo. He picked up Tamim, who on 39, glanced an off-target delivery down the leg side only for Quinton de Kock to pluck it out of the air. <p></p> <p></p><b>Brief scores:</b> <p></p> <p></p><b>South Africa</b> 496 for 3 decl. (Dean Elgar 199, Hashim Amla 137; Shafiul Islam 1 for 74) lead <b>Bangladesh</b> 208 for 8 (Mominul Haque 77, Mahmudullah 66; Morne Morkel 2 for 51, Keshav Maharaj 2 for 89) by 188 runs.
