SA need 7 wickets on last day

South Africa need seven wickets on the last day to secure victory in the first Test and go ahead in the two-match series as Bangladesh struggled on a rain-curtailed fourth day at Senwes Park on Sunday.

Morne Morkel snagged two wickets in the first over of Bangladesh’s second innings and they were 49 for three at stumps, still 375 runs shy of an improbable victory.

Later, Morkel was taken to hospital with a side strain that could rule him out of the rest of the series.

Imrul was the third wicket to fall off the spin bowling of Keshav Maharaj for 32. Captain Musfiqur, not out on 16, and Liton Das will resume on the last day.
