Bangladesh is considering one change, with Roqibul Hassan in line to make his Test debut, most likely at the expense of all-rounder Naeem Islam.

Coach Jamie Siddons told the reporters a day earlier that Naeem was yet to be fully ready to take the challenge of Test cricket, giving an indication that the off-spinner-cum-middle-order batsman can find himself only carrying the towels and bottles at Centurion.

The chance for left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak to make a Test return with this game is also very slim, according to Siddons. When asked after Bangladesh reached Johannesburg on Monday, Siddons said they would decide only after having a look at the pitch.

‘The way the other South African pitches behaved, it is unlikely for us to take two spinners into the second Test,’ said Siddons.
