This is Nikhil Popat and I will be bringing you the updates from the match. The first Test was marred by rain and more such is expected in the second Test. Bangladesh started the first day well after winning the toss and electing to bat first. They have put up a decent show so far but will want to take the score towards 300. Will they be able to do it or will South Africa dominate with a good batting performance? Catch all the updates here.
