CRICDOT DESK : Taizul Islam is the best spinner of Bangladesh team after Shakib in Test. He has proved that long ago. That is why in the match in which Shakib does not play, the leadership of spin attack is also in his hands. But due to the combination of the team in recent times, Taizul is not getting a chance in the XI. Finally got the chance and what a wonderful way to screw people over.

Bangladesh is playing two spinners and two pacers in the Port Elizabeth Test. This has opened the forehead of Taizul. The experienced spinner has already picked up two wickets for South Africa. Proteas captain Dean Elgar, who scored 80 at first, and Keegan Petersen, who scored 64 later, were the victims.

The hosts won the toss and elected to bat at St. George’s Park today. In the 28 overs of the first session, their score stood at 106 for one. Then they return from lunch and start running at the same speed. Dean Elgar was getting worse and worse. He continues to play in ODI style. When the team scored 133 runs, Taizul Islam hit. Elgar has been caught behind in his spin magic. He made 60 off 69 balls before being dismissed.
