South Africa in command as Bangladesh end Day 3 of 2nd Test on 27-3 chasing 413
Port Elizabeth, South Africa, April 11: The Port Elizabeth Test is a reflection of the Durban Test. However, the first match of the two-match series was still fought for four days and the Bangladesh team was able to win in five days. In the last match of the series, his hopes are very low. Mominul Haque's team ended the third day's play today (Sunday) with the fear of a big loss.
Chasing South Africa's 413, Bangladesh batsmen are in trouble after losing three early wickets for just 27 runs in the end of Day 3 of the second test match at St. George's Park.
The way the South African spinners are getting turns and extra bounce from the wicket, saving this test match is a big challenge for Bangladesh. Mominul (5 not out) will start the fourth day on Monday with the new batsman.
South Africa is leading the two-match test series after beating Bangladesh in the Durban test by 220 runs.
In the first innings of the second test, Dean Elgar's team was stopped at 453 runs, but the Bangladesh team could not take advantage with the bat.
