Bangladesh chose to bowl vs South Africa
On an unusually brown-green Kingsmead pitch, which Keshav Maharaj said he had never seen at this venue before, Mominul Haque chose to make first use of the surface with three seamers at his disposal. He was without Shoriful Islam, who has a niggle and Tamim Iqbal, who was ruled out this morning due to a stomach ache. Tamim is being attended to by a doctor at the team hotel. Bangladesh opted for only one specialist spinner – Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
Although stadiums are allowed 50% capacity as of last week, there were less than a hundred people in the ground before play got underway, with bigger crowds expected later in the day and at the weekend.
