The ongoing first Test between South Africa and Bangladesh is heading towards a fifth-day thriller as the hosts are trying to add on as many runs as possible while batting in the second innings on Day 4 at Kingsmead in Durban. Earlier, the Dean Elgar-led side posted 367 in their first innings. Bangladesh bowlers did a wonderful job as Khaled Ahmed picked four wickets, and Mehidy Hasan clinched three crucial wickets in the first innings.
While Bangladesh provided 69 run lead to South Africa for the second innings, the hosts struggled in front of Bangladesh bowlers. While bowlers were making it challenging for the batters to stay on the crease, Yasir Ali displayed exceptional fielding in 44th over to dismiss Bavuma.
It all happened off Ebadot Hossain's over when he angled the bowl to draw Bavuma into the front foot, but the thick outside edge guided the ball towards the first slip. As the ball stayed too low and Yasir had less time to react, he moved swiftly across to his left and came up with a one-handed beauty as he rolled across the turf. Yasir's brilliance provided a much-needed breakthrough as Bavuma was the top scorer in the first innings.
Earlier, in response to 367, the Bangladesh opener Mahmudul Hasan Jay scored 137 runs in 326 balls, while Liton Das' 41 closed the gap before visitors bundled out for 298-10 in 115.5 overs.
