Bangladesh vs SA: Day 1 Wrap
The day largely belonged to Proteas seamer Dale Steyn who took his 400th test wicket.
CAPE TOWN - Bangladesh ended day one of the second test against South Africa on 246/8.
The Phalaborwa Express led from the front from first ball to last to help negate at least some of Bangladesh's advantage of having won the toss and opting to bat on the first day of the series-deciding second Test at Mirpur on Thursday.
He finished the day with figures of 3/30 in 16.1 overs as Bangladesh.
JP Duminy was good back up to Steyn, taking 3/27 in 15 overs.
The Bangladesh total was built around two major partnerships: Mominul Haque and Imrul Kayes putting on 69 for the second wicket and Mohammad Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim 94 for the fourth.
It is a statistic the Proteas will want to change tomorrow.
They certainly need at least one and preferably two three-figure scores from their top order when it comes to their turn to bat.
Dane Vilas was preferred to Quinton de Kock in the only change to the Proteas' line-up.
He became the 87th player to represent the Proteas in the five-day format.
