South Africa v Bangladesh, 1st Test, Potchefstroom, 28 Sep - 2 Oct, 2017

Will the Bangers take their goodish form to South Africa and make a good account of themselves, or will juicy decks see them shit their pants?

Bangers without best player

"The BCB has granted Shakib Al Hasan the break he had requested from Test cricket, but for a shorter duration than the six months he had asked for. Shakib will be allowed to rest during Bangladesh's tour of South Africa, which begins later this month, though Akram Khan, the BCB's cricket operations chairman, has said he has the option of playing the second Test, "if he wants".

"Shakib wrote a letter to us asking for a six-month break," Akram said. "He can miss the first Test against South Africa but if he wants, he can play the second Test. He will not be traveling with the team but he can tell us what he decides to do."

Akram said that Shakib had made his request in order to prolong his international career. "We can't always be thinking about us," Akram said. "We should also keep his fatigue into consideration." "

Hmmm, am I being harsh to say "poor dear"?

Best all-rounder in Test cricket ... shame not to see him in the side.  Hope he has not been lured away by the various T20 circuses

Fine player, though he is, Shakib has always been a dick who held the board to ransom when he wants things to go his way. Seem to remember that he also went on a strike before.

Yes.

I wonder what it is that he wants. More money?

In the fair dinkum department they should probably give it to him, whatever it is.

Verny out

"Fast bowler Vernon Philander has been ruled out of the first Test against Bangladesh as he continues to recover from a lower back niggle sustained during the England series this winter. Allrounder Chris Morris is unavailable for the entire Test series and is only likely to return for the T20s in late October. Seamer Lungi Ngidi, who had a lumbar fracture, may also make a return in that series. However, there is no set timeline for Dale Steyn's comeback, although the T20 Global League in November could be on his radar.

In Philander and Morris' absence, South Africa will likely field a Test attack comprising Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada and Duanne Olivier with Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo and Beuran Hendricks all awaiting their chance. The Test squad will be announced towards the end of the opening round of first-class matches, which begins on Tuesday."
