South Africa concluded Day 2 of their opening Test against Bangladesh on a promising note with the tourists in a spot of bother at 98/4, in arrears by 269. Off-spinner Simon Harmer picked all four wickets. The off-spinner, who was introduced into the attack in the 9th over, bagged his first wicket on his return to Test cricket when he castled Shadman Islam. The opener paid the price for camping back in his crease. After the Tea break, Najmul Shanto, the number three batter, stepped down the deck to crack sixes and also brandished the drive to put some pressure back on the spin duo of Keshav Maharaj and Harmer.
