[Day 2, Lunch]
South Africa: 530/3 (Amla 132*, Du Plessis 120*)
After a delayed start to the day due to rain, HashimAmla& Francois Du Plessis have both scored tons before the lunch session in day two of the 2nd test match. Both batsmen reached their personal milestone with boundaries. Bangladeshi bowlers looked at a loss throughout the abridged session. The Proteas maintained their brilliant scoring rate of almost 5 runs per over as none of Taijul Islam, MustafizurRahaman or Rubel Hossain could surprise the two experienced batsmen.
Amla reached his 28th century in tests with a boundary off Mustafizur’s delivery. Only legendary all rounder Jacques Kallis has more tons in tests for the South Africans than he. Du Plessis was confident all throughout the session, scoring runs left, right & centre. He also hit a boundary off Mustafiz to reach his 7th century in tests. The duo also brought up their 200-run partnership in this session. Only Temba Bavuma has missed a ton of the 5 batsmen that have taken to the crease in this test for the South Africans. Quite a long day lies ahead for Mushfiqur’s men once again it seems.
