South Africa beat Bangladesh by innings and 254 runs in 2nd Test

As expected, South African bowlers made a short work to dismiss Bangladesh for 173 in their second innings thus beating the Tigers by a phenomenal margin of an innings and 254 runs just before tea on the third day of the second Test at Mangaung Oval in Bleomfontein on Sunday.

After winning this Test, South Africa has whitewashed 2-0 in this two-match series.

Bangladesh resuming at 92 for 4 after lunch and could muster another 81 runs losing their last six wickets.

The Tigers batsmen who were out after lunch are Liton Das 18, Sabir Rahman 4, Taijul Islam 2, Rubel Hossain 7, Subahis Roy not out 12, Mustafizur Rahman 7 and Mahmudullah 43. 

K Rabada was the leading South Africa bowler with ten wickets haul, in the first innings he took 5 for 33 and in the second inning he captured 5 for 30. 

South Africa scored 573 for 4 declared while Bangladesh managed 147 and 172 runs in their two innings

Earlier, Tigers were asked to follow on Saturday as Bangladesh today resumed at overnight total 7 for no loss but there was no respite for Bangladesh batsmen as South Africa has picked up four wickets in the morning session and Bangladesh have lost the core of their batting. 

The last loss, of their captain, has been their most telling yet. Bangladesh badly needed their most experienced batsman to hang around for the rest of today, but that was not to be. Rabada was outstanding again early in the morning, Olivier sent down a marathon spell and while Parnell has produced a peach to leave South Africa one step closer to wrapping this up early.

Imrul Kayes 32, Souyma Sarkar 3, Mominul Haque 11 and Mushfiqur Rahim 26 were the Tiger batsmen who were out in the lunch session. Mahmudullah Riyad was batting at 14 at lunch.

Earlier on Saturday, half an hour before close, Bangladesh were bowled out for 147 in their first innings and were asked to follow on.
