Elgar, Markram make Bangladesh pay for poor bowling

Are four-day matches the innovation Test cricket needs

A hamstring injury forced Tamim out of the second Test beginning Friday at Bloemfontein but team physiotherapist Thihan Chandramohan was hopeful he would recover in time for the ODI series which starts October 15.

Bangladesh are already without another of their leading batsmen, Shakib Al Hassan, who asked to skip the tour to rest because of exhaustion.

For Duanne Olivier, who plays his first-class cricket in Bloemfontein for Knights, the news can not be better. Cobras coach Ashwell Prince later suggested that such pitches were not good for South African cricket.

The four-day Test against Zimbabwe, the first of its kind, was proposed by then CSA chief Haroon Lorgat to fill the void created by India.

The conditions played a vital role in Bangladesh's defeat as they go into the second Test on the back foot. We made a lot of silly mistakes.

Sega then tied up with Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014 for the film development in its bid to expand its entertainment brand. Unlike many other video games that are turned into movies, Sonic the Hedgehog already has a wealth of adaptation under its belt.

The Proteas skipper further said that players, both batsmen and bowlers, have to graft it out for five days.

In absence of Tamim, Imrul Kayes and Soumya Sarkar would be the most likely pair to open the innings and talking about them, the captain said, "Starting every innings is tough but we expect them to give us a good start". The opening hour had produced 55 runs in 14 overs and the morning officially turned from bad to worse for Bangladesh with the tiring bowlers failing to penetrate and leaking as many as 71 more before Lunch.

"When you get nothing from the wicket, you have to go to the other options".

After a shellacking of 126 runs in the first session, Bangladesh's players were unexpectedly given an extra 10 minutes to think about their poor bowling as the afternoon session was delayed because, of all things, the Tigers' food arrived late.

Olivier has played all of his professional cricket for the Knights, and last season took 52 wickets to bowl them to the Sunfoil Series title. "It'd be better if they can do it quickly", he added.
