Cricket fans can watch Day Two of the Second 2015 Test Match between South Africa and Bangladesh live online as the Proteas bowlers will attempt to follow up their strong Day One outing when they took eight wickets holding their hosts to 246 after South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn became just the 13th bowler ever to collect 400 Test wickets.
The First Test ended in a draw after rain wiped out the final two days of play with no balls bowled.
The 32-year-old Steyn (pictured above), bowling in his 80th Test Match, reached his milestone early, in just the fifth over of the day, dismissing Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal on an edge to first slip, where Tamim was caught out by South Africa Captain Hashim Amla.

The quick wicket made Steyn only the second South African to reach the milestone, after Shaun Pollock, and he went on to claim two more later in the day to bring his Test total to 402.
Afterward, Steyn shrugged off the accomplishment.
“I have never been a stats person. It’s nice to have them numbers but I have had a lot better moments in my cricketing career,” the 11-year-veteran said. “Win games for my country has always been objective Number One so, yeah, job’s not over. It’s cool. It’s nice to have 400.”
Part time off-spinner J.P. Duminy also took three wickets on the day as only one Bangladesh batsman, Captain Mushfiqur Rahim, was able to get past the half-century mark, finishing with 65. Four more Bangladesh batsmen were dismissed with scores between 30 and 49.
