Default Bangladesh v South Africa - A brief history

Bangladesh v South Africa - A brief history

2002-03 in South Africa
There was scant encouragement for Bangladesh who were emphatically beaten in both Tests and one-dayers, never offering South Africa a convincing challenge. Makhaya Ntini warmed up with 10 wickets at 10.14 in the one-day series - too fast, too hostile for the Bangladeshis - before obliterating them in the two Tests with 12 wickets at 15. Only Hannan Sarkar and Al Sahariar notched fifties while South Africa posted five hundreds - including two from Gary Kirsten who became the first batsman to score hundreds against all nine Test-playing nations. Graeme Smith's 200 set-up a huge innings win in the first Test in East London, while in the second at Potchefstroom Jacques Kallis tore through with 5 for 21. As Wisden reported, the sentiment that Bangladesh benefited from competing against such strong opposition wore rather thin.
Tests: South Africa 2 Bangladesh 0
ODIs: South Africa 3 Bangladesh 0


2003 in Bangladesh

Chastened from their disastrous World Cup campaign, South Africa embarked on a tour of Bangladesh with a new-look squad. Graeme Smith was appointed captain - the third-youngest at 22 years 82 days - while Allan Donald and Jonty Rhodes both retired. Bangladesh were also rebuilding, with the captain Khaled Masud making way for Khaled Mahmud, but South Africa's youthful façade was still far too strong. In the first Test at Chittagong, Jacques Rudolph cracked 222 on debut to begin a chequered international career. And in the second, South Africa's bowlers probed away to crush Bangladesh for 102 and 210, sweeping the series 2-0.
Tests: Bangladesh 0 South Africa 2

2007-08 in Bangladesh
South Africa were given the hurry-up in 2008, squeezing home by five wickets in the first Test at Mirpur, on a juicy surface which offered plenty to seamers. Bangladesh even squeaked a first-innings lead of 22 after Shahadat Hossain picked up career-best figures of 6 for 27. The hosts' stranglehold couldn't last, however, and they were rolled for 182 in their second innings, leaving South Africa chasing 205 to win - a target, though tricky, was far from insurmountable. Normal order was resumed at Chittagong where Neil McKenzie and Graeme Smith put on 415 for the opening wicket. 405 of those came on the first day - the most runs scored in a day without a wicket falling. Robin Peterson picked up 5 for 33 while Dale Steyn grabbed seven in the match as Bangladesh were walloped by an innings-and-205-runs. The ODIs went to script, too, with Smith notching 199 runs in the three comprehensive wins for South Africa.

But before BD's tour to SAF in 2002-03 we had another tour when we a South African coach I just cannot recall it. In that tour we didn't play any international match but we played some FC and One day matches. One of the FC our lowest total was 52 all out.
