South Africa declare at 496 for 3 declared at Tea on day-2

South Africa has taken full control of the proceedings as T Bavuma on 31 and skipper F du Plessis on 26 at crease when as Proteas go into tea declaring at 496 for three at tea on the second day of the first Test match against Bangladesh on Friday at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom. 

Hashem Amla departed without adding runs any to his lunch time score at 137 as he was caught at point by Mehidy off Shafiul Islam and Dean Elgar was unlucky to be out for 199 trying to hook was caught by Mominul Haque off Mustafizur. 

It was a slight better session for Bangladesh as they conceded 85 runs and captured two South African wickets in this session.

Earlier a mammoth 215 runs 2nd wicket unconquered partnership between Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla put South Africa on a commanding position as they pile up 411 for 1 at lunch on the second day of the first Test match.

Elgar resuming at 128 and Hashim Amla on 68 with the South Africa score reading 298/1, they went on to day two to plunder the toothless Bangladesh bowling line to take their to 411 for 1 without any blemish. 

Elgar played almost a second fiddle to remain not out at 172 while Hashem Amla looked in brilliant touch remained unbeaten 137 at lunch on day two with threatening to amass a very big first innings total.
