Over 33 Bangladesh 90/10/Yes

So that is it from us for this game! Everything has happened as expected. South Africa take a 1-0 lead in the series. They were astute in all three departments. Bangladesh on the other hand, found it very difficult to adapt to the conditions here. They will have to rethink their strategies and come out fighting if they are to level the series in the second game which is going to be played on the 6th of October in Bloemfontein at 1000 local (0800 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!
Man of the Match, Dean Elgar is really happy to have contributed for the team on what was a flat track. Is not disappointed to get out on 199 as he feels such things do happen at times. Adds Aiden Markram played well and he just tried to clam the nerves of the debutant at the start. Feels he got a lot of advice from coaches regarding how to play on the tracks at home. Informs he was just trying to cash in as much as possible as it has taken him quite a bit to stabilize himself as an opener. Further says it's all about being consistent, as long as he can continue in this manner and the team is winning, it's satisfactory for him.
South Africa skipper, Faf du Plessis says that he is very happy with their performance. Mentions that they were very consistent and especially credits the bowlers. States that the he is not happy with the conditions. Adds that only spin and reverse swing can get you wickets here. Feels that dismissing the skipper, Rahim early on was important. Rues the fact that Morkel has got injured. Adds that he is at his peak at the moment and it is disappointing that the injury has happened now. Declares that Markram and Olivier had good debuts and were quite impressive. Ends by saying that he expects more bounce and carry in Bloemfontein.
Bangladesh skipper, Mushfiqur Rahman starts by blaming the bowlers who let them down in the first innings. Agrees it was a flat track but feels they could have hit the right areas to cause some trouble. Is really bewailed that is side got bowled out under 100 as he doesn't remember when was the last time this happened. Adds they didn't show any character in the second innings but says they have another opportunity to showcase their talent in the next Test. Praises Mominul Haque and Mahmudullah for their efforts with the bat. Ends by saying they would look to put this performance behind and need to be mentally strong as professionals.
A target of 423 was always going to be tough and they fell short by 333 runs, losing two early yesterday and it took only one and a half hour today to bowl them out. Stay tuned for the presentation in a while.
For the away side nothing went right for them. The only thing that went their way was the toss which they won and elected to bowl. A decision which not a lot of fans appreciated. South Africa posted a mammoth 496 with Elgar and Amla scoring big tons. Also the debutant, Markram missing out on one by just three runs. Bangladesh did manage to show some fight in the second innings but it was never going to be enough as they gave away a lead of 176. Early wickets was the call for them in third, they did manage to take three but 142-run stand between Faf and Bavuma took the game away from them.
Bangladesh have been beaten black and blue. They have shown no fight today. It was too easy for the South Africans especially after the wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim. Rabada and Maharaj together ran through the Bangladeshi batting line-up with the pacer bagging three and Maharaj taking four. Morkel was the early tormentor as he set up the tone by picking two in one over yesterday before walking off injured.

Maharaj to Rahman, OUT! That's the final nail in the coffin! A terrific victory for the Proteas. They have been clinical throughout and are the deserved winners. Slow through the air outside off, Rahman strides forward and ends up chipping it straight towards Maharaj. He leaps and pouches it safely. Big smile on the faces of the hosts' players. Customary handshakes all around as well. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 333 RUNS!
