We will show why we are No.1: Proteas’ Morkel
South Africa have plans to show Bangladesh why they are the No.1 Test cricket team in the last match here after they failed to play their natural game in the drawn first Test. “It’s time for us now to step it up a bit and show why we are the No.1 team in the world,” said fast bowler Morne Morkel, reports bdnews24.com.
The Chittagong Test was called off after rain washed out the last two days. But the hosts had kept the Proteas under pressure in the first three days. South Africa were restricted to just 248 in the first innings and then the hosts took a 78-run lead, scoring 326. Bangladesh still had a 17-run lead when the match was drawn. The second Test is set to begin at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium here on Thursday.
