Scorer Elgar unhappy with first-strike South Africa attack

Earlier, that Bangladesh's best session of the match was one in which South Africa scored 85 for the loss of two wickets in 29 overs revealed the extent of the Proteas' dominance.

"The new ball doesn´t last very long on this wicket as we´ve seen over the last two days".

But there was something to liven up the mood as Elgar clocked his ninth century three balls later.

No further reward came the home team's way, and Saturday will demand more hard work from them if they are to ensure a substantial lead - which now stands at 369 runs - on the first innings.

Elgar and Markram were largely untroubled as they ticked off several milestones.

Although the misses did not prove too costly in the runs column - Mushfiqur was on six when the first drop went down, but was eventually dismissed by Maharaj for 44 - the slip position is becoming a problem.

Elgar admitted culpability for twice dropping Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim off left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj.

"For me‚ it is important that he doesn't listen too much to the things that are being said out there about him".

Markram says the squad has taken a lot of encouragement from Elgar's gutsy nature and inspiring contributions throughout the season, which have become synonymous with the fighting left-hander.

Tamim (22) finally came to the wicket and he and Monimul (28*) moved the score to 127 with the latter hitting the final ball of the day for six.

But if Markram feels a little compensated by the news that he and Greenidge share that dismissal nature on first-time Test appearance in the 90s, there is potentially further heart for him to take.

Bangladesh was regretting that decision to bowl first as Elgar made a big century, Hashim Amla added 137, and opener Markram made 97 on debut on the first day.

No chances were offered to the tiring Bangladesh bowlers on a flat track flawless for batting although South Africa will be tempted to increase the run rate in the afternoon session with the possibility of rain later in the day.

It seemed to be a clever declaration on the part of Faf du Plessis as Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal, who came into the game having just recovered from a thigh muscle injury, was off the field for 49 minutes before the tea interval.

Markram has been called up to partner Dean Elgar and will make his debut today in the first test against Bangladesh at Senwes Park.

Rabada, Morkel and Maharaj claimed one wicket each.

"I would like to put that to bed, I'm bitterly disappointed and I get angry and frustrated speaking about it". I still get another opportunity to get a Test double hundred, so that's fine with me.

179 - Runs conceded by Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the first innings - the most by a Bangladesh bowler in Tests away from home. Perera managed to get an edge before the ball hit his pads and that helped him survive before he was given out lbw for the 3rd time in the innings and the review couldn't save him then. Despite his short stay, Mushfiqur's strike rate of 77.19 was enough to get South Africa to start opening up the field to him and switch to a fuller length.
