    After running out Markram for 97 yesterday, Dean Elgar goes for 199, becoming the 12 Test batsman to be dismissed on that number (joining the likes of Steve Waugh, Kumar Sangakkara, Younus Khan, Steve Smith and Ian Bell).

      Gordon Lord got run out for 199 in county cricket back in the day.

      Decent bit of fight from Bangladesh. Mahmadullah is a tough cookie, hope they avoid the follow on.

        Should do so comfortably now, but still a long way to go to save the game. It is a good fight considering they don't have Shakib and Pochefstroom is a bit of a SA fortress.

        Comment


          Sabbir got out just short of the follow on, whereupon Mahmadullah hit Maharaj for 6 to get them over the line. He promptly got out to Morkel and Taskin has been run out, so SA still well on top even if they will have to bat again.

            308-8 at tea. South Africa's bowling is still very thin without Philander and Steyn.

              Pakistan vs Sri Lanka seemed to be petering out into a draw, but a late order Pakistani rally and then a Sri Lanka collapse to 65-4 means it is all to play for.

              Bangladesh were set 420 and then lost two wickets in the first over. Slight recovery to 36-2 since then.

                South Africa accelerated well to set the target. Yasir is the key man in the Pakistan game.

                  Indeed he was Satchmo, getting 5 wickets as SL slump to 138 all out. Needing 136 to win, Pakistan not making the most flattering of starts, faltering to 8/2.

                    Now 52-5 (having been 36-5).

                      Let's draw a discreet veil over Bangladesh's final day.

                        Pakistan creeping up slowly. 77/5

                          100/7. 36 needed, three wickets left.

                            114 all out. Herath does it again.

                              Harumph.

                                No, it was definitely Herath.

                                  Not a bad way to get one's 400th wicket

                                  His eleventh five wicket haul in a fourth innings (four more than either Muralithan or Warne)

                                    He really is an amazing bowler. Wish I'd been able to watch that. His performance against Australia last season was one of the great series for a spinner.

                                      Pakistan's first ever Test match loss in Abu Dhabi; Herath 11 wickets in the match.

                                        South Africa giving Bangladesh a hammering in the Second Test - 573-4d v 147 all out. Will be over by tea day 3.

                                          Without Shakib and Tamim it never looked possible for the Banglas.

                                            Cricinfo has referred to the SL v Pakistan tea break as dinner due to it being a D/N Test. Is this official ICC policy?

                                            Comment


                                              Sri Lanka already 250 ahead, but they're 35 odd for 5 in their second innings. Still strong favourites but Pakistan have a chink of hope.

                                                Three Bangladesh players struck on the helmet. South Africa overdoing the short stuff, maybe, or Bangladesh are just not equipped for facing quick bowling on a fast track.

                                                Can't see Pakistan chasing down 300 against Herath.

                                                  SA's new opener Aiden Markram really looks the real deal. One could do worse than place a bet on him becoming SA captain to succeed Faf. He'll be the new Graeme Smith.

                                                  Comment


                                                    SL now effectively 315-7, crucial stand of 35 for the 8th wicket thus far, maybe decisive.
