Rudolph, Adams set up SA victory



Paul Adams picked up a match haul of 10/106 as South Africa bowled out Bangladesh for 237 to win the first test by an innings and 60 runs early on day four in Chittagong on Sunday.

Full Scorecard

The home side began the day on 185/5, and Charl Willoughby made the initial breakthrough, having Mohammad Ashraful (28) caught at cover by skipper Graeme Smith for his first test wicket.

Paul Adams then picked up two scalps to take his match tally to nine.

The first came from a rank long-hop that Akram Khan (16) inexplicably hit straight down Boeta Dippenaar's throat at mid-on. Later in the same over, Mashrafe Mortaza was caught at slip by Shaun Pollock for a duck.

Smith himself even got among the wickets, having his opposite number Khaled Mahmud stumped by Mark Boucher for 1.

Adams wrapped up the match by having Enamul Haque caught and bowled for 11 to end the innings with 5/69 from 18.4 overs.

Yesterday, Jacques Rudolph's debut double century lifted South Africa to 470/2 declared shortly before lunch, a first innings lead of 297.

The 21-year-old Rudolph finished on 222 not out, the second highest score by a debutant in a test match and the first South African to score a double hundred on debut.

Boeta Dippenaar made a test-best 178 not out, his unbroken partnership of 429 with Rudolph the highest for any wicket for South Africa, surpassing the 368-run opening stand between Herschelle Gibbs and current captain Graeme Smith against Pakistan at Newlands earlier this year.

The second and final test starts in Dhaka on Thursday will be televised live on ESPN (Channel 33 on DSTV).
