South Africa make short work of win.

SOUTH Africa made short work of Bangladesh early on the final day of the first Test to complete a 333-run victory at Potchefstroom.

Faf du Plessis' men were without injured seamer Morne Morkel but ran through the tourists nonetheless, as left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj (four for 25) and fast bowler Kagiso Rabada (three for 33) did the damage in a total of 90 all out.

Bangladesh resumed on 49 for three in notional pursuit of 424 but were able to summon precious little resistance.

The second and final Test will get under way in Bloemfontein on Friday.
