South Africa make strong start in first Bangladesh Test

Elgar soon stepped up the scoring rate and even completed his half-century as South Africa went on to reach 99 for naught at the end of the first session.

T20Is: Feb. 18 (Johannesburg); Feb. 21 (Centurion, d/N); Feb. 24 (Cape Town, d/n).

South Africa will be hoping to ease new coach Ottis Gibson into his job in a two-test series against Bangladesh where the home side defend a one-sided record against their opponents but are light on fast bowlers and still tinkering with their top order.

CSA and the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) had initially agreed to play four Test instead of the now scheduled three. The India women team will tour South Africa for three ODIs and five T20Is, starting on February 2 with a warm-up game.

The 22-year-old Markram appeared to be heading for a dream start to his Test career before being dismissed on 97 when he was caught out of his crease, backing up too quickly as he attempted to help opening partner Elgar to his century.

South Africa will also be involved with double header T20 global matches between South Africa and India.

Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers and F-15C fighter jets did fly closer to the North on Saturday than ever before in the 21st century. Lee said the United States appeared to have disclosed the flight route intentionally because North Korea seemed to be unaware.

The India series will be followed by Australia's.

"This is now the time when none of us can wait for the action to start", concluded Lorgat.
