Bloemfontein may just be the place to start finding that balance. It pits a traditionally strong side the much awaited South Africa vs Bangladesh is touted as the emerging one that can prove its worth in this period of the game. Armed with four changes to their line-up from the first Test - only one of them injury-forced - Bangladesh's hopes of taking control early on faded away rather briskly as the South African opening pair piled on runs easily, thoroughly dominating the new ball.

After a shellacking of 126 runs in the first session, Bangladesh's players were unexpectedly given an extra 10 minutes to think about their poor bowling as the afternoon session was delayed because, of all things, the Tigers' food arrived late.

The pitch was good but we could not bat the way we wanted to.

For Duanne Olivier, who plays his first-class cricket in Bloemfontein for Knights, the news can not be better.

Now the leader of the country is telling citizens directly to stop watching football. "It's not that they're protesting", he said. Overnight ratings for the telecast fell to a 11.6 rating for the game where the New York Giants defeated the Oakland Raiders.

At the second innings for their lowest against South Africa the team collected the score of 90 was also the first time they have been dismissed for under 100 in a decade.

Bangladesh will need to put a lot of effort to come back strongly in the 2nd Test after the way they surrendered in front of South Africa in the 1st Test match even after winning the toss.

Herath, who achieved the milestone of 400 Test wickets with his 11-wicket match haul in Abu Dhabi, has gained 37 points to reach within six points of third-placed Ravichandran Ashwin of India.

"We're very unlucky in that we have four bowlers injured at the same time; we've never faced with a scenario like this". Instead, it will up to a young crop - Olivier, who is not sure whether he will be given the new ball, Kagiso Rabada and two of Andile Phehlukwayo, Wayne Parnell or Dane Paterson - to step up. Playing at Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, the openers Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram made mockery of the Bangladesh bowling and dented their spirit with aggressive batting display. More showers are forecast for Thursday, which means the track may not see much sunlight before the first ball is bowled on Friday, and it could be tricky for batsmen on both sides.

Likely XI: Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Liton Das (wk), Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim (capt) and Taskin Ahmed.
