Bangladesh won the toss and sent South Africa in to bat in the second and final Test at the Mangaung Oval on Friday.
Prior to the match, Proteas captain Faf du Plessis called for ‘another dominant performance’ in the second Sunfoil Test match describing the first Test as ‘spotless’.
At his pre-match press conference in Bloemfontein on Thursday, Cricket SA cites Du Plessis saying: “We want another dominant performance.
“If we are honest with ourselves, in conditions like this it is important that we do that against Bangladesh. Yes, on their day they can be dangerous but we need to keep pressure on them and restrict opportunities in the game where they can get on top of us.
“In this game it is important for me that we show that consistency.
“We were brilliant for five days in Potch, we didn’t have half-a-session that belonged to Bangladesh, it was the perfect game that we played. It is important that we back it up in another game here, that consistency is the excellence we are striving for.”
