Keshav Maharaj snared a seven-for in the second innings of the first Test against Bangladesh to help South Africa register a thumping 220-run victory and go 1-0 up. Maharaj and his team-mate Simon Harmer joined forces to take 14 of the 20 Bangladesh wickets to fall as the visitors were torpedoed for their second-lowest total in Test cricket – 53. It was also the lowest score in Tests in Durban.
