Bangladesh vs South Africa 1st Test: Jacques Kallis the hero of South Africa team

It is the time to see South Africa as a winner in the first Test of the two match Test series in Narayanganj Osmani Stadium, Fatullah. Three days have left in the five-day Test series where host team made a 205 run chasing score against visiting team. Now, South Africa is closer from win. Today they could compile 178 for 4. They need only 27 runs to get win.

Host Bangladesh team started their first test nicely after falling South Africa with a chasing score of 22 runs in their first innings. But Bangladesh team could not use this benefit. They lost all wickets to score 182 runs and made an easy 205 runs lead against second world best team South Africa.

South African great Jacques Kallis got five for 30 in 14 overs that has helped South Africa to come back in the match. After five years, he got five Test wickets. That was his fourth time five wicket taking in Test.

South African captain Graeme Smith played an important role for his team. He compiled 62 runs off facing 104 balls including 6 boundaries.

South African wicketkeeper Mark Boucher break the record of highest Test dismissal in his 110th Test match that was belonged to Australian great Adam Gilchrist.

Tomorrow South Africa again will start their batting. And it is thought that they will reach their target as early as possible.

As a supporter of Bangladesh team, I hope that Bangladeshi bowlers will try their best to prove their talent and got some wicket to make the match exciting.
