After Bangladesh secured their maiden ODI series win in South Africa, Shakib Al Hasan is upbeat about the success having a chain reaction on to the Test format against a depleted South African side which will be shorn of a few of its stalwarts due to IPL commitments. The home side will be without Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Marco Jansen, Anrich Nortje, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram in the red-ball wild. Shakib was expected to return home on March 24 for a family emergency, though the team management did not rule out his availability for the second Test, which starts from April 8.
