Keshav Maharaj takes 7 as the Proteas crush Bangladesh in Durban ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Keshav Maharajย bowled South Africa to an emphatic win in 13 overs and 55 minutes on the fifth morning of the first Test, dismissing Bangladesh for the lowest total in an innings at Kingsmead. It was Maharaj’s eighth Test five-for and best figures at home, which helped South Africa win just their second of the last ten matches at the venue.

He was supported by offspinnerย Simon Harmer, who made his comeback to Test cricket, and finished the match with seven wickets. Between them, the spinners took 14 wickets – theย second-mostย by South African spinners in a home Test and the most since readmission.
Bangladesh were dismissed for their second-lowest total in Tests and lowest against South Africa, an unfortunate end to a match where they remained competitive until the last half-an-hour on the fourth day. Set 274 to win, Bangladesh were 11 for 3 overnight and lost seven for 42 on the fifth morning. Only two of their batters got into double figures and four were dismissed without scoring.
