Bangladesh trailed by 188 runs with 2 wickets in hand at tea on day three in the 1st innings against South Africa 496/3-d in the first Test at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Saturday.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz (8*) at the crease at tea while Shafiul Islam (0*) pairing him in the 9th stand after the departure of Taskin Ahmed.
The Tigers resumed the 1st innings on the day with overnight score of 127/3 in 34 overs and escaped the follow-on trap before tea, piling up their tally to 308/8 in 86 overs spurred with two half centuries by Mominul Haque (77) and Mahmudullah Riyad ( 66).
Mahmudullah faced 124 balls to fire 11 boundaries and one six to complete his 14th Test half century, before being bowled out by Duanne Olivier at 304/7 in 83.4 overs.
Mahmudullah shared a partnership innings of 65 off 17.4 overs with Sabbir Rahman (30 off 46b; 4x4; 1x6) in the 6th stand to carry the team collection to 292/6 in 80.1 overs starting from 227/5 in 63.3 overs after Mominul Haque's dismissal.
Mominul who reached 77 runs -- the highest Test score by a Bangladesh batsman in South Africa -- facing fiery spells from Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel in the first session, departed from crease soon after lunch leaving team total at 227/5 in 63.3 overs.
Overnight batsman Mominul faced 150 balls in the innings to fire 12 boundaries and shared a partnership innings of 55 in 20.4 overs with Tamim Iqbal in the 4th stand that stared from 103/3 in 25.1 overs after the departure of skipper Mushfiqur Rahim on day 2.
Tamim who batted at number-five position for the first time in his Test career, survived twice from review those called by South Africa in 37.2 and 39.1 overs before he was caught by an incredible one-handed catch of keeper Quinton de Kock off Andile Phehlukwayo at 158/4 in 45.3 overs. He departed from overnight 4th stand scoring 39 off 67 balls, including six boundaries and one six.
Tamim started the day on a positive note with a beautifully timed drive through point off Kagiso Rabada. Morne Morkel, though, found extra bounce and kept him quiet. Rabada then hit rhythm and Tamim's pads twice in two overs with HawkEye siding with the on-field umpire's not-out call on both occasions.
Morne Morkel and Keshav Maharaj bagged two wickets each for 51 and 89 runs while Andile Phehlukwayo, Duanne Olivier and Kagiso Rabada took one wicket apiece for 18, 52 and 75 runs in the innings respectively.
Brief Score:
South Africa 1st innings: 496/3d in 146 overs (overnight 298/1 in 90 overs); Dean Elgar 199, Hashim Amla 137, Aiden Markram 97, Temba Bavuma 31*, Faf du Plessis 26*, Shafiul Islam 1/74, Mustafizur Rahman 1/98.
Bangladesh 1st innings: 308/8 in 86 overs at tea (overnight 127/3 in 34 overs); Mominul Haque 77, Mahmudullah Riyad 66, Mushfiqur Rahim 44, Tamim Iqbal 39, Sabbir Rahman 30, Liton Kumar Das 25, Mehedi Hasan Miraz 8, Morne Morkel 2/51, Keshav Maharaj 2/89, Andile Phehlukwayo 1/18, Duanne Olivier 1/52, Kagiso Rabada 1/75.
