Dale Steyn claimed his 400th Test scalp as he shared six wickets with JP Duminy, putting South Africa on top on the first day of the second and final Test against Bangladesh in Dhaka Thursday. Paceman Steyn claimed three for 30 while off-spinner Duminy took three for 27, as a mini collapse in the final session restricted Bangladesh to 246 for eight at stumps. Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim scored the lone half-century for Bangladesh and made a 94-run partnership with Mahmudullah for the fourth wicket after he won the toss and elected to bat. Rahim hit 65 off 125 balls, his 15th Test fifty and first in 12 innings as Bangladesh made slow progress before South Africa took control of the game in the final session at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Skipper Hashim Amla made no mistake in Steyn’s next over when he took a chest-high catch at first slip. “It’s a mix of different emotions really,” said Steyn, who was wearing a Dennis Lillee-style headband on the field after growing his hair long. “I don’t really know what to say. It’s pretty cool to take the wickets and get the headband off and get the hair off,” he told reporters after the day’s play. “I think I have taken some abuse about my hair. That doesn’t influence my bowling at all.” Shaun Pollock is the only other South African to pass the 400-mark, taking 421 wickets before retiring in 2008. Live cricket updates: Bangladesh vs South Africa 2015, 2nd Test at Dhaka, Day 2 here.
