Kingsmead Durban Weather Today: The SportsRush brings the weather forecast for day 5 of the inaugural SA vs BAN test to you.
The fifth and final day of Bangladesh’s ongoing tour of South Africa in Durban is set to be an exciting day of Test cricket despite the home side having a clear advantage at the moment.
Chasing a 274 run target, Bangladesh were down to 11/3 in six overs before poor light forced the players back to their locker rooms. With South African spinners Keshav Maharaj and Simon Harmer opening the bowl, Bangladesh would ruin up to three wickets without facing a ball from the fast bowlers.
When Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mushfiqur Rahim return to the field this morning, they will have 263 runs ahead of them to register their first Test victory against South Africa. Another affirmative option for the visitors is to bat for a total of 98 overs on Day 5 to register their first draw in South Africa.
Apart from the players, this Kingsmead test between South Africa and Bangladesh will be remembered for some below average referees on Day 4 as referees on the pitch at Marais Erasmus and Adrian Holdstock had gone under the scanner yesterday.
