    Morne Morkel took two wickets in the first over of Bangladesh's second innings, heaping the pressure on the tourists in the first Test as they limped to 49-3 at the end of Day 4 on Sunday. Morkel bowled Tamim Iqbal for a duck in the fourth ball of the first over. AFP

    Morkel had Mominul Haque out for 0 lbw off the sixth ball — even though TV replays showed the ball was missing the stumps. Bangladesh, which missed a trick not to review Mominul's dismissal, was still 375 runs off the victory target at the close. AFP

Kagiso Rabada claimed three quick wickets, starting with Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim. Mahmudullah was then bowled for nine and Liton Das next adjudged leg before as he padded up to an inswinger from Rabada. Twitter @ICC
